The Story Behind Pumpkin Cheesecake

The Story Behind Pumpkin Cheesecake

October has arrived which means it’s officially pumpkin season at Baskin-Robbins with the return of a seasonal favorite, Pumpkin Cheesecake. This sweet spin on a classic looks like fall and tastes like heaven, combining pumpkin and cheesecake flavored ice creams with a delicious cinnamon cream cheese ribbon. Ginger snap cookie pieces add the perfect blend of molasses and ginger to take this flavor to the next level. 

Pumpkin Cheesecake is the perfect way to get into the fall spirit and celebrate the quintessential flavor that warms your heart as the weather gets cooler. Try Pumpkin Cheesecake in a freshly baked, chocolate-dipped waffle cone or ask for it in a Cappuccino Blast® for a fall twist to your favorite frozen coffee treat.

If you are a pumpkin spice aficionado, you may have tried this flavor before as it has appeared on our menu a number of times in the past. To get the inside scoop on what makes this returning fan favorite flavor so special, we spoke with Nicole McKinnell, Research and Development Technologist at Baskin-Robbins.

“We took a lot of time, trial and error in getting the right cinnamon cream cheese ribbon to complement the pumpkin and cheesecake ice creams. We think this flavor is special because it brings together our authentic cheesecake flavor that our fans know and love, with a really great pumpkin spice blend, making it one of our seasonal gems,” said McKinnell.
