The ice cream possibilities at Baskin-Robbins are already endless, but we’re taking it to the next level with a sweet ice cream treat that comes straight from the corner cafes of Italy: the Affogato.
What is an Affogato? It’s a classic Italian dessert that features a scoop of vanilla ice cream covered in a warm shot of espresso. The poured espresso is actually where this dessert gets its name since “affogato” by definition means “drown” in Italian.
It’s the simple yet delicious combination of velvety ice cream and rich espresso that makes Baskin-Robbins and Dunkin’ your local affogato ambassadors! This indulgent new menu item is a simple combination of two brand favorites: Baskin-Robbins’ Ice Cream topped with Dunkin’s bold, smooth espresso, resulting in a rich palate-pleaser and perfect afternoon pick-me-up. Try a classic affogato with Vanilla ice cream, or customize with your favorite flavor.
Now you can get this decadent treat that will transport your taste buds to Italy at Dunkin’ and Baskin-Robbins combo stores nationwide for only $3.49. Trust us, you won’t believe how good it is until you try it – that’s why we’re offering free samples on Monday, March 18 between 10:00 am and 2:00 pm.
