Baskin-Robbins Debuts Vegan Coffee Caramel Chunk Ice Cream
Each month, Baskin-Robbins highlights a different flavor. For November 2019, the flavor of the month is the company’s Non-Dairy and Vegan Coffee Caramel Chunk! With an espresso-flavored base, decadent chocolate chunks, and smooth caramel ribbon, the delicious new ice cream will be available throughout the month.
This new ice cream joins two other Baskin-Robbins plant-based flavors: Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough and Chocolate Extreme. Made with coconut oil and almond butter, the vegan treats have no preservatives, artificial flavors, or high-fructose corn syrup.
Both flavors launched in August after more than two years of development. Jeanne Bolger, director of research and development at Baskin-Robbins, stated:
It was important for us to take the time to get it right. Both flavors are so smooth and indulgent, and the final product delivers the incredible quality that our customers have come to expect from any Baskin-Robbins ice cream. We’re very proud of the result.
Baskin-Robbins is not the only company jumping on the plant-based ice cream craze. Silicon Valley startup Perfect Day recently launched a first-of-its-kind, vegan-friendly ice cream made with real cow’s-milk proteins that do not come from actual cows. Over the past few years, Ben & Jerry’s has become a beloved brand for dairy-averse consumers. Starting with four plant-based flavors in 2016, the company has consistently added varieties to its popular dairy-free line. Even Target sells its own delicious plant-based ice cream!
