From now through November 30 th, ice cream enthusiasts can become digital dessert chefs by visiting flavorcreator.baskinrobbins.com to virtually mix their own ingredients to create a new flavor. Visitors to the site can choose from dozens of base flavors, a range of ribbons such as fudge crackle or strawberry, and a variety of different mix-ins ranging from cake pieces to confetti sprinkles. New ingredients for this year's contest include Salty Caramel, Milk Chocolate and Peanut Butter ice creams, Passionfruit, Triple Berry and Salty Caramel ribbons, and Pecans and Blondie Brownie Bites for mix-ins.

"At Baskin-Robbins, creating exciting and delicious new ice cream flavors isn't just important to us, it's at the core of everything we do," said Stan Frankenthaler, Baskin-Robbins Executive Chef and Vice President of Innovation at Dunkin' Brands. "We couldn't be more thrilled to extend this unique opportunity to our fans and provide them with the chance to have their flavor immortalized in the Baskin-Robbins flavor library. We're also excited to bring our reigning contest winner's fantastic flavor, Nutty Cream Cheese Brownie, to our shops nationwide."

This November, participating Baskin-Robbins shops nationwide will be featuring Nutty Cream Cheese Brownie, the winner of the second annual Create Baskin's Next Favorite Flavor Contest, as the Baskin-Robbins Flavor of the Month. The winning flavor, created by Kelsey Lien of Santa Clarita, California, is a flavorful combination of chocolate fudge ice cream swirled with a cream cheese ribbon, combined with walnuts and fudge brownie pieces.

"I feel extremely grateful and privileged to have been selected as the winner of Baskin-Robbins' second annual Create Baskin's Next Favorite Flavor Contest," said Lien. "It was a surreal experience creating the first batch of Nutty Cream Cheese Brownie ice cream with the Baskin-Robbins culinary team earlier this year. I'm so excited that my flavor will be shared nationwide at Baskin-Robbins shops this November, and I hope ice cream enthusiasts across the country enter this year's contest to create the next new flavor."
