Baskin-Robbins Just Dropped A New Non-Dairy Flavor

Long gone are the days when having a lactose intolerance meant missing out on enjoying a delicious bowl of ice cream. Today, there are a wide variety of dairy-free ice creams to choose from, boasting a long list of flavors including everything from strawberry to salted caramel. With the recent increase in sales of plant-based milks and cheeses (via Food Institute), it's no wonder why ice cream chains like Baskin-Robbins would want a scoop of the action.

According to itsĀ website, back in 2019, Baskin-Robbins introduced a few non-dairy flavors, including a chocolate chip cookie dough flavor made from coconut oil and almond butter, but based on their current menu, it would appear those flavors have since been discontinued. According to Go Dairy Free, another non-dairy item the chain offered for a time was an oat milk-based strawberry streusel flavor. Though that flavor didn't last forever either, lucky for non-dairy fans, it wouldn't be the last non-dairy flavor the chain would offer.

Baskin-Robbins' newest non-dairy flavor is Mint Chocochunk

While the demand for plant-based food items proves they're here to stay, it makes sense that one of Baskin-Robbins' top-selling flavors would get a non-dairy version. According to the chain's website, Baskin-Robbins has introduced its first non-dairy flavor made from coconut milk. The new flavor, Non-Dairy Mint Chocochunk, comprises a mint-flavored frozen dessert, semi-sweet chocolate chunks, and fudge swirls. If Baskin-Robbins goers want to try out the new flavor, they may want to carve out some time in their schedule soon, though, since the chain reports that Mint Chocochunk will only be available for a limited time.

According to Baskin-Robbins' website, Mint Chocochunk is joining the chain's one other plant-based flavor offering that was launched last year. That flavor is Non-Dairy Salted Fudge Bar, an oat milk-based dark chocolate flavor with fudge swirls and fudge pieces. Another non-dairy product Baskin-Robbins offers is Daiquiri Ice. This flavor combines lime puree and rum flavoring, and not only is it dairy-free, but it's also fat-free. If we had to guess what non-dairy flavor Baskin-Robbins might roll out next, we might take a peek at some of the country's other favorite flavors. In addition to mint chocolate chip, America's other top ice cream flavor choices, according to the International Dairy Foods Association, are vanilla, chocolate, and cookies n' cream.
