Baskin-Robbins celebrates Dads with delicious lineup of ice cream cakes and seasonal ice cream treats


CANTON, Mass., 2017-Jun-03 — /EPR Retail News/ — Baskin-Robbins, the world’s largest chain of specialty ice cream shops, recently conducted a survey* that reveals just how much dads use ice cream as a parenting technique compared to moms. The study also shows the role ice cream plays in bringing families together.

In time for Father’s Day, the survey unveiled many unique findings around dads and ice cream, including:

  • Dads use ice cream to incentivize – Dads are almost 75 percent more likely than moms to use ice cream to bribe their kids to do something they don’t want to do, such as a chore
  • Ice cream is a peacemaker – Dads (77 percent) are more than twice as likely as moms (30 percent) to use ice cream to resolve a conflict or argument
    • More than half of dads (51 percent) have used ice cream to resolve an argument with their spouse
  • Ice cream as a pick-me-up – Nine out of 10 dads give their children ice cream when they are feeling sad or disappointed to help cheer them up
  • I Scream, You Scream – Almost all parents (96 percent) agree that ice cream is a great treat to enjoy with their family and friends
  • Sneaking a Pint – One in five dads prefer to eat ice cream when their spouse is not around, and almost one-quarter of dads want to have some alone time this Father’s Day

“We love to see just how much ice cream plays a role in dads’ and their children’s lives, and in bringing families together,” said Carol Austin, Vice President of Marketing for Baskin-Robbins. “That’s why we’re so excited to have a special lineup of ice cream treats that will help our guests celebrate Dad all-month long. We know dads and their families will enjoy our new June Flavor of the Month, Made with TWIX® Bars, and we’re excited to offer our Cold One Cake, which celebrates dad in a fun and frosty way.”

Baskin-Robbins is kicking off the summer season with a lineup of frozen desserts that will keep guests cool throughout the hot summer days. Starting today, guests can enjoy the new June Flavor of the Month, Made with TWIX® Bars, which features caramel and chocolate malt ice cream, TWIX® bar cookie pieces, chocolate flakes and a caramel ribbon. This classic candy bar flavor can be enjoyed by the scoop in a cup or cone.

Also launching today is the new Praline Pecan Cookie, which is inspired by Baskin-Robbins’ signature Pralines ‘n Cream flavor and combines all of the same flavor elements in a delicious cookie. The Praline Pecan Cookie can be combined with any ice cream flavor as a Warm Cookie Ice Cream Sandwich or a Warm Cookie Sundae.

This month, Baskin-Robbins is also offering a variety of ice cream cakes to help celebrate seasonal occasions, including Father’s Day and Graduation Day. The following cakes can be customized to feature Dad’s or your special grad’s favorite ice cream and cake flavor combination, and can be ordered in-store or online:

  • New! OREO® Cookie Ganache Cake: An elegant and decadent cake featuring an OREO®-infused chocolate frosting, topped with a mouthwatering ganache, and alternating goodness of OREO® cookies, frosting rosettes and chocolate triangles
  • The Cold One Cake: This returning favorite, shaped like a mug, says cheers to Dad in a flavorful and frosty way that will help him kick back, relax and celebrate his day
