Baskin-Robbins Gingerbread House Ice Cream

[New for Dec 2021] It seems like just yesterday I was trying the November flavor of the month (I still have some left), and here we are in December already. I 've been digging the level of creativity in the packaging and flavors this year so let's dive in to...

Baskin-Robbins Gingerbread House Ice Cream

I love opening these

Ha, so cute!

I only take a few bites on the first scooping and I don't hate it, but I'm also not sure how to process what I'm tasting. I can't really think of anything else that tastes like this. It's packed full of flavor, but at the same time, I don't feel like it's attacking me. It's gingerbread, but it's not beating me over the head with a gingerbread house.

On Second Scoop: I bet there are some of you thinking "gingerbread + peppermint sounds disgusting", and I get that. I mean, honestly, I wasn't sure how to comprehend the combo either, but the reality is that it does work. I didn't instantly love it because I just don't enjoy gingerbread, but I'd be lying if I said it didn't work. It could be that the peppermint and icing are helping to balance things out. As of now, I'm thinking this needs to be in a French toast breakfast sundae.

It's not French toast (it's a cinnamon roll), but it was delicious....

Verdict?  a surprising combo
Buy Again?  probably not

Since when does Gingerbread have peppermint pieces? I love gingerbread, but hate crunchy peppermint (gets stick in my molars). If you have the Milk version in your freezer, try that next. It's pretty good. As a side note, my favorite was the B&J Festivus and I just don't understand why they don't bring that back for holidays. People have constantly asked for it to be revived.

I think the peppermint pieces are there to reflect the decors? Peppermint and gingerbread are yummy but not together.

They should had used gingerbread cookie dough than peppermint.
