Happy National Ice Cream Day

Baskin-Robbins Retiring Some Oldies But Goodies

July is National Ice Cream Month, and with that Baskin-Robbins is cleaning house...out with the old and in with the new! The company recently announced that it is retiring five of its 31 signature flavors including the classic staple French Vanilla, which was with the company since it started in 1945, Caramel Praline Cheesecake (1970), Campfire S'mores (1975), Apple Pie a La Mode (1976) and Superfudge Truffle (2007).  Tastes change, and Baskin-Robbins claims its putting these classic flavors into the "Deep Freeze Vault" with the other retired flavors to make room for 5 new flavors due out this fall.

The last tubs of these 5 flavors have been sent out to Baskin-Robbins stores, and are only available until supplies last, so get it while you can! Some other flavors that have been put into the vault are Astronut (1961),Beatle Nut (1964),Acceptance Peach (1976),Miami Ice (1986),The Mask "Somebody Stop Me" Twist Ice (1996),whYte 2K chocolate overload (2000),and Shrek Swirl (2001).

What are some of your favorite ice cream flavors you think Baskin-Robbins should bring back?
