“Our new Ice Cream Whoopie Pies are a fun twist on a classic dessert, featuring a guest’s favorite Baskin-Robbins ice cream flavor sandwiched between rich, moist chocolate cake,” said Stan Frankenthaler, Baskin-Robbins Executive Chef and Vice President of Innovation at Dunkin’ Brands. “These new ice cream treats celebrate Baskin-Robbins’ long tradition of serving a wide range of delicious ice cream flavors and creative frozen desserts to surprise and delight our guests.

Originating in the Northeast in the early twentieth century, whoopie pies are traditionally made with two pieces of round chocolate cake with a sweet, creamy vanilla frosting in the middle. Baskin-Robbins has added a cool twist on this classic treat by offering Ice Cream Whoopie Pies, allowing guests to customize their order with any of Baskin-Robbins’ 31 flavors as the whoopie pie filling. Ice Cream Whoopie Pies are available at participating Baskin-Robbins shops in the Greater Houston area for a limited time only through early June.
