Baskin-Robbins Blueberry Muffin Ice Cream

[New for March 2019] Ok, let me just say..... Ooops. In the rush of new freezer aisle stuff (and the craziness of a new job), I forgot to post about my return to Baskin-Robbins! That's right, my new job has put me back in the middle of many tasty things... actually, it's even easier to get to B-R now, so let's have it. [To make it up to you, I'll post the April flavor tomorrow]

Let me get straight to the point, this could have easily been called Jelly Donut instead of Blueberry Muffin and no one would have known the difference. It just had a strong, jelly donut like fruit flavor rather than something specifically blueberry. It's kind of funny when you think about it since companies love throwing fake blueberry flavor in to so many things.

This one would probably be fun in a breakfast sundae, but as is, it was a bit much and I'm glad I only got a single scoop. It was just too sweet and there was nothing to really break up the texture. If I remember right, I think it lingered a little funny too. It was a fine idea, but some kind of doughy muffin bits would have made it a lot more fun and worthy of a repeat purchase.

Verdict?  jelly donut
Buy Again?  Nah
