The Baskin Robbins Flavor of the Month for October 2016 is inspired by Halloween and little fat kids everywhere.
Baskin Robbins Trick OREO Treat Dark Ice Cream features chocolate ice cream, Halloween Oreos, Butterfinger and Baby Ruth candy bar pieces, and a dark fudge ribbon. It’s gotta be a treat, right?
Well it was a trick in a more literal sense for me. When I went to my Baskin Robbins on the first of the month (a really sad ritual at this point), they didn’t have Baskin Robbins Trick OREO Treat Dark Ice Cream. What they did have was the Trick OREO Treat ice cream of years past: the one with vanilla ice cream.
I just assumed the vanilla one was the Flavor of the Month. I was pretty disappointed as I ate it in my car alone because mine didn’t have much Butterfinger or Baby Ruth candy bar pieces, and they were so small that it didn’t make a major impact. It was basically just cookies & creme.
Later that day, Baskin Robbins tweets that the Flavor of the Month is actually the Trick OREO Treat Dark, something you would only know if you’re a special kind of fatass that follows Baskin Robbins on Twitter like me.
Son of a bitch…
24 Hours later I found myself back in a Baskin Robbins, successfully locating Baskin Robbins Trick OREO Treat Dark Ice Cream. I shared my thoughts on Instagram:
One of two @baskinrobbins Flavor(s) of the Month is Trick OREO Treat Dark. It features chocolate ice cream, Halloween Oreos, Butterfinger and Baby Ruth candy pieces, and a dark fudge ribbon. --- The Good: The chocolate ice cream and plentiful fudge ribbon combine for something really decadent. Tons of Oreos = a Dark Chocolate Cookies & Creme. --- The Bad: I didn't taste any Butterfinger at all in my double scoop, and only once did I hit a Baby Ruth - a gigantic rock hard piece of it.. --- The dark chocolate and Oreos are the treat, the candy is the trick. It's also available with a vanilla base, a returning flavor from years past. 7.5/10
Of the two, Trick OREO Treat Dark Ice Cream is the way to go. However, the candy mix-ins are inconsistent and not executed all that well. The Butterfinger adds a little peanut buttery crunch, but the Baby Ruth pieces are frozen solid and will require a follow-up trip to the dentist. The best part was the dark fudge ribbon, and Baskin Robbin’s chocolate ice cream performs well enough to make up for some of the flaws.
In summary, Baskin Robbins Trick OREO Treat Dark ice cream is a trick and a treat at the same time.
