While the iconic ice cream brand might be known for 31 Flavors, the food company is always looking to embrace the next big trend. From that savory note as seen in the Chick’n and Waffles frozen treat to spicy flavors from last fall, that scoop of vanilla has some big flavor competition. To kick off the start of summer, the Baskin-Robbins Strawberry Dragonfruit May Flavor of the Month brings some flavor excitement to sunny fun.

The new Strawberry Dragonfruit blends familiar with a tropical. Strawberry is a classic ice cream flavor. It might be overlooked when sitting next to vanilla and chocolate, but the sweet, fruity notes bring smiles all around. More importantly, it feels light on those warm days. When there is fun to be had, no one wants to be left on the sideline.

Joining the classic strawberry is Dragonfruit. While the fruit’s visual might be dramatic, the sweet flavor is delicate. That tropical note blends well with other fruits.

By combining the Strawberry and Dragonfruit, the resulting frozen treat will captivate people beyond the bold color. The flavors are enjoyed in two ways, including a Strawberry Dragonfruit swirl. As the flowers bloom in May, this new flavor will add to the blossoming excitement for the season.

While Baskin-Robbins suggests potentially pairing this flavor with other fruit forward options or even a sorbet, it works equally well with a simple vanilla. The contrast of fruit and cream is a classic that many people appreciate. It might not be an actual oasis, but it is a flavor escape that many people will appreciate.

Flowers and Mother’s Day often go hand in hand. While some moms might have a favorite flower, sometimes it can be nice to pick a flower with a particular meaning. For example, the peony is said to symbolize love, honor, and beauty of a mother. Even if mom is not familiar with the exact meaning, it can be a conversation starter around the table.

The Baskin-Robbins Perfect Peony Cake features a peony that is almost too pretty to eat. From the blooming flower to the frosting border, the cake will get applause from everyone around the table.

Of course, like all the Baskin-Robbins cakes, it can be paired with a favorite ice cream. From the new Strawberry Dragonfruit, a classic chocolate, or Mom’s favorite scoop, there are plenty of options.

Summer fun is around the corner. Build some excitement by enjoying a taste of the Baskin-Robbins Strawberry Dragonfruit and let the smiles take over.
