The Story Behind Baskin-Robbins’ Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream is an original Baskin-Robbins 31 flavor that became a staple on our menu in 1945 when Burt Baskin and Irv Robbins first opened their doors. Now, more than 75 years later, it is still one of our most popular flavors. This creamy, Mint flavored Ice Cream made with rich Semi-Sweet Chocolate is sure to leave your taste buds refreshed and wanting more. But do you ever wonder how we ensure this simple, yet delicious flavor combination has chocolate in every bite?

Like our Chocolate Chip Ice Cream, our Mint Chocolate Chip recipe includes Liquid Chip instead of traditional chocolate chips or flakes. Liquid Chip is chocolate added in a melted state, which hardens as it is mixed into the ice cream. This process allows for guests to enjoy more chocolatey goodness in every bite.
