I’m so proud of my D-Man. He started Kindergarten just three weeks ago, and he’s been doing exceptionally well. So well, in fact, that when I ask his teacher how he’s doing, she tells me that he’s such a positive influence to the children that sit near him. He’s always well behaved and he never gets behavior warnings. Just last Friday he brought home his work folder, and we got a fun surprise. He was chosen to be his classes very first star student! We are so very proud of him.
This past weekend Big G was off work, so we decided to head over to Baskin Robbins for a fun treat since D-Man has been doing so well. He’s a huge fan of ice cream, so I knew he’d enjoy it. He was so excited about the gift card we were going to use and he was counting down the seconds till it was time to leave and he could get a scoop of any of the 31 flavors that Baskin Robbins is known for.
What’s cool about Baskin Robbins, and what you may not know, is that they change some of their flavors every month. Sure they keep some classics, such as my favorite Cherries Jubilee or even Chocolate Chip, but they often add in seasonal flavors and flavors of the month.
It just so happens that for the month of September the flavor is Pumpkin Cheesecake Ice Cream. Umm, yum! Seriously, you know I love pumpkin flavors and cheesecake is my weakness so this has got to be amazing right? Oh yes, once I learned about that I was ready to go!
Not only is Pumpkin Cheesecake a delicious flavor of the month, there are some other tasty flavors being highlighted.
- Pumpkin Cheesecake – Features pumpkin and cheesecake flavored ice cream, ginger snap cookie pieces and a cinnamon cream cheese ribbon.
- Peanut Butter ‘N Jelly – Peanut-butter flavored ice cream with grape jelly and peanut butter ribbons.
- Quarterback Crunch – Vanilla-flavored ice cream with rice crunchies in a chocolate-flavored coating and a caramel ribbon.
- German Chocolate Cake – Swiss chocolate ice cream with coconut, walnut pieces, fudge brownie pieces and caramel ribbon.
- S’More the Merrier – Marshmallow and graham cracker flavored ice cream that features milk chocolate chips and a crunchy graham cracker ribbon.
Baskin Robbins to me is so nostalgic. I’ve always loved their ice creams since I was a kid, and I even remember daydreaming about working there as my first job. Unfortunately, that didn’t quite pan out for me, but it’s probably for the best as I’m sure I’d have gotten in trouble for snacking on the “merchandise” far too often.
Even though the Fall season is literally just around the corner, here in Northern California it’s been pretty warm lately so the idea of pairing ice cream with Fall Flavors is simply genius to me, and I just love whoever thought it up. Since it was hot we got cups with our cones just in case the ice cream dripped too much before we could eat it. I just love those classic pink spoons!
I had to have my pumpkin and RiRi ordered the Quarterback Crunch. I’m going to admit to digging a sample spoon into each flavor because I had to share my thoughts with you all.
The pumpkin flavor is so reminiscent of Fall desserts and I’m here for it. The Quarterback Crunch was also good, especially if you love caramel. You could taste the little rice crunchies, so it’s almost like those rice treats drenched in caramel. Yum, right?
RoRo ordered the Peanut Butter ‘N Jelly ice cream, and it tastes just like the sandwiches I make them all the time! Big G enjoyed it too, since that’s his favorite sandwich.
It was a fun way to take some time and enjoy one another, is such a nostalgic way. I just love going to ice cream shops for that.
What I also love is that you can add any of these pretty toppings to your ice cream to customize it however you like. I can think of a few different ways to enjoy these flavors with this candy!
D-Man enjoyed his treat, and he was happy to have us all together on a beautiful afternoon. He loves pumpkin flavors too, so he enjoyed his!
I just love family days like this!
Then of course these two start messing around! So much fun!
Do you have any ice cream shop memories? What I also love about Baskin Robbins is that many of their flavors are available for pick up as well, not to mention their cakes for all occasions! We’ve ordered cakes for many birthdays, Mother’s Days and we even ordered these cute mini turkey cakes last Thanksgiving! Delicious and beautiful!

My all-time favorite Baskin Robbins flavor is Very-Berry Strawberry! Has been since I was a child. Plain and no frills but oh-so-deelish!
