CANTON, Mass., Feb. 28, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Baskin-Robbins, the world's largest chain of specialty ice cream shops, is putting a new spin on ice cream for breakfast with the March Flavor of the Month, Blueberry Muffin. This all-new flavor features muffin-flavored ice cream with blueberry pieces and a blueberry ribbon, making for a delicious treat any time of the day!
The Baskin-Robbins fun doesn't stop with scoops and cones in March, as Milkshake Mixology returns to participating locations nationwide. Guests are encouraged to become "milkshake mixologists" and create new milkshake flavors by blending two of their favorite ice creams into one tasty shake. For those in need of inspiration but ready to try something new, Baskin-Robbins culinary experts recommend:
- Very Berry Muffin: a combination of Blueberry Muffin and Very Berry Strawberry ice creams
- Creamsicle: a play on another classic dessert featuring Orange Sherbet and Vanilla ice cream
- Brookie: a chocolate-y mashup of World Class® Chocolate and Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough flavored ice creams
- Strawberry Shortcake: a remix on an American classic with Very Berry Strawberry and Icing on the Cake ice creams
"Our menu this month is all about shaking things up, whether it be a spin on breakfast for dessert with our new Blueberry Muffin flavor or giving our guests the chance to create new milkshake flavors no one has ever dreamed of before," said Carol Austin, Vice President of Marketing for Baskin-Robbins. "At the same time, we're also ready to celebrate St. Patrick's Day with our tried and true green favorites Mint Chocolate Chip and Pistachio Almond!"
Guests won't need the luck of the Irish this month to score some savings at Baskin-Robbins with two special in-store events. On Sunday, March 3rd from 3:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. guests can visit their local Baskin-Robbins for a free sample of a featured Milkshake Mixology flavor combination*.

For lucky customers near select Baskin-Robbins and Dunkin' combination stores, milkshakes aren't the only treats on the menu getting a remix.
