While many people are still enjoying their pumpkin spice, Baskin-Robbins brings another fall flavor to the conversation. From the orchard to a slightly darker side, these October offerings are both spooky and sweet.

Although Halloween candy might be the trick or treating focus, sometimes a statement piece on that Halloween table is a game changer. This year, the popular Unicorn Cake has been put under a spell.

The Zombie Unicorn Cake is back and everyone is excited to slice into this monsterpiece. This cake might be a little magical, but the spell leans towards the witching hour, not the colorful rainbow. From the green mane to the dark décor, it is a great choice next to that cauldron. Plus, the cake can be customized to include any cake or ice cream flavor.

While the Zombie Unicorn Cake is a statement piece for the Halloween event, the Baskin-Robbins October flavor of the month goes to the apple orchard for inspiration. The Apple Cider Donut will have many people saying pumpkin spice – what?

The Apple Cider Donut folds pieces of apple cider donut into apple cider donut ice cream. It is a double dose of spicy, apple goodness. With cinnamon sugar swirls, the flavor leans toward the sweet but it is never overly cloying.

Thinking about this seasonal flavor, consider turning it into an actual donut sandwich or just add a scoop on top of a warm donut. It might become a new fall tradition.

For Baskin-Robbins, it was smart to step away from the pumpkin spice flavors. Even though more brands are offering apple forward choices for fall, this treat avoids falling into the flavor saturation conversation. It hits a balance between nostalgic flavors and something new. Who doesn’t love enjoying an apple cider donut at the pumpkin patch. It hits that sense memory, but it offers a new presentation.

The Baskin-Robbins October offerings are available now. Check with local stores for availability and pricing.
