Baskin-Robbins brings back the German Chocolate Cake Ice Cream as the chain’s latest limited time flavor.
First introduced in 1965, Baskin-Robbins’ German Chocolate Cake Ice Cream features smooth Swiss-style chocolate ice cream layered with fudge brownies, coconut flakes, walnut pieces, and caramel swirls.
The German Chocolate Cake is a deconstructed flavor that breaks down the flavor profile of the traditional German Chocolate Cake dessert, which consists of a decadent chocolate cake with layers of coconut-pecan frosting, and reimagines it into a creamy frozen treat.
According to Baskin-Robbins, you can taste all the sweet elements of the traditional dessert in just one bite of their German Chocolate Cake Ice Cream.
German Chocolate Cake does not come from Germany, as many would be inclined to believe. Actually, the dessert that inspired this ice cream flavor got its name from American baker Samuel German, who in 1852 developed a type of dark baking chocolate that was later named Baker’s German’s Sweet Chocolate in honor of German. In 1957, a recipe for German’s Chocolate Cake, which is still very popular, appeared as the “Recipe of the Day” on the Dallas Morning News, eventually prompting Baskin-Robbins to add the ice cream flavor to its menu for the first time back in 1965.
You can find the German Chocolate Cake Ice Cream flavor at participating Baskin-Robbins locations nationwide for a limited time only. It’s also available for delivery through DoorDash, Grubhub, and Uber Eats.
