CANTON, Mass. (September 6, 2012) – As the sultry days of summer come to a close, Baskin-Robbins, the world’s largest chain of ice cream specialty shops, invites ice cream lovers to “fall” into the new season with its September Flavor of the Month, Apple Cinnamon Crisp. Featuring cinnamon-flavored ice cream with apple and oat chunks, plus a buttery brown sugar cinnamon swirl flavored ribbon, Apple Cinnamon Crisp combines classic autumn flavors into one delicious frozen treat.
“To celebrate the change in seasons, we’re delighted to introduce Apple Cinnamon Crisp as our September Flavor of the Month,” said Stan Frankenthaler, Baskin-Robbins Executive Chef and Vice President of Innovation at Dunkin’ Brands. “Apple Cinnamon Crisp is inspired by seasonal touch points like orchard harvests and warm baked goods. It’s a delicious new addition to the Baskin-Robbins flavor library.”
For a more decadent treat, guests can enjoy the new Apple Cinnamon Crisp Waffle Bowl Sundae. The sundae features two scoops of Apple Cinnamon Crisp ice cream in a waffle bowl, topped with warm caramel praline topping, whipped cream, almonds and is finished with a cherry on top. Baskin-Robbins’ new Apple Cinnamon Crisp is available by the scoop in a cup or cone at participating Baskin-Robbins shops nationwide in September. The flavor is also available in fresh-packed pints and quarts, so ice cream lovers can bring the flavor home to enjoy with family and friends.*
