Baskin-Robbins Releases Candidate Ice Cream Flavors

Baskin-Robbins' New Election Flavors! Which to Lick?

Just in time to cool off this heated election, Baskin-Robbins has released two spanking new flavors, one for each of the candidates. Ever wonder what two scoops of McCain tastes like? His flavor, Straight Talk Crunch is:

Caramel ribbon, chocolate pieces, candy red states and crunchy mixed nuts swirled into White Chocolate ice cream.

Think a lick of Barack is more your taste? His flavor, Whirl of Change, is:

Peanut-nougat ice cream whirled with chunks of chocolate-covered peanut brittle and a caramel ribbon.

I think they're willing to look the other way on the whole Obama doesn't like ice cream thing . . . Given the (banana) split of the country, what would election-themed flavors be without a chance to vote for your favorite? You can, in the Flavor Debate '08. From now until Oct. 20, sample the candidates' sweet stuff and vote online or in stores for the winner. I wonder if the ice cream war could be a useful replacement for the old Electoral College? It would be a sweeter contest, to be sure.

Which flavor would you want to try first?

ricklmc, maybe you'd prefer Nader-Tots. They're fried potatoes delicately wrapped in caramel ice cream covered with hot butterscotch and cheese. I'm getting those in November.

What does it say that I am allergic to both of them? LOL

They both sound yummy but Obama had me at chocolate covered peanut brittle. Yum yum!

For the most part I'm a bit of a purist when it comes to ice cream as well. My two favorites are french vanilla and coffee. But I'd really have to think hard to find a kind of ice cream I DIDN'T like, and wouldn't eat if it was the only ice cream option.

I don't like white chocolate with anything so I'm going to have to go with Obama on this one.

Wait-- Obama doesn't like ice cream? I don't know if I can support that! :)

lol, I think I will eventually. But right now my stomach can barely handle saltines to I'm not going to risk it!

That does suck, GS. I have lactose intolerance, too (I call it my Asian Milk Problem). But ice cream is just so yummy that I'm willing to live with the consequences occasionally ;)
Great-Sommelier Great-Sommelier 8 years
ooh, coffee. And I had an amazing lemon sorbet the other day. For some reason after my last surgery I became completely lactose intolerant. I hear it is common after gallbladder removal. But it sucks. So I am replacing my Friday ice cream with a quest to find the best sorbet or sherbet there is!

Yeah, the chunks are definitely worse. Ice creams are so complicated! I just want some plain old chocolate or coffee flavored ice cream, or sorbet.

I don't mind ribbons, but chunks, :sick: . I don't like mixing textures like that. Crunchy with smooth, etc.

They had me at nougat.

Both sound pretty gross to me. I like my ice cream simple and without chunks or ribbons of stuff in it.

This post had me at "Which to Lick?" :) No way to decide!

Can't do nuts. Sorry guys. I guess I'll go third party.

I have no idea why I capitalized ice cream. :shrug:

yeah, these flavors are way too similar...not that I should be getting all worked up about this, but geez...chocolate, nuts and caramel in both?

Obama's sounds way better, and not just because I am an Obama supporter! What the heck are "candy red states"? Ah, if only our country was in the position to take politics as lightly as this poll suggests!
