The world’s largest ice cream chain is finally jumping on board the dairy-free train. As of August 1st, Baskin-Robbins will serve two vegan flavors: Chocolate Extreme and Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough.
Baskin-Robbins Expands their Ice Cream Portfolio with Non-Dairy Flavors
With plant-based food sales reaching double digits across the US, many ice cream brands have scooped up the opportunity to release non-dairy flavors. Baskin-Robbins is a little late to the social, but they’ve finally perfected vegan versions of classic fan-favorite flavors.
- Non-Dairy Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough is made with vegan cookie dough pieces, chocolate chunks and a chocolate ribbon.
- Non-Dairy Chocolate Extreme contains chocolate chunks and a chocolate ribbon, and is also “gluten conscious.” (It’s gluten-free by ingredients, but probably not “celiac safe.” Read the notes that follow.)
Both new varieties are made with a rich, nutty base of coconut oil and almond butter that is free of preservatives, artificial flavors, and high fructose corn syrup. However, they aren’t free from top allergens. In addition to containing nuts, the brand has made it clear that potential allergen cross-contamination is possible during production:
“All of Baskin-Robbins menu items (vegan and non-vegan) are prepared in the same area. Baskin-Robbins cannot guarantee that there will be no cross-contact between products or ingredients.”
They probably follow good manufacturing processes for cleaning the lines, but contact the company to ensure that the flavors are safe for your needs before ordering. And make sure that the store staff is using a separate scoop for the special diet flavors.
How to Order Dairy-Free at Baskin-Robbins
This is a global chain, so there is no guarantee that all of the non-dairy options listed here will be available at your local store. Check with the staff and always contact the company first if you are dealing with a severe food allergy. This post is for informational purposes only and should not replace your own due diligence. And remember that you can make your own Dairy-Free 31 Flavors at Home!
To the best of our knowledge, the following menu items are dairy-free by ingredients (read the allergen note above), and available at Baskin-Robbins stores in the U.S. They might be available in other countries too.
