Baskin-Robbins is kicking off the Halloween season with a new ice cream flavor that offers a bit of a treat and a trick.

New Spicy ‘n Spooky ice cream combines white chocolate ghost pepper-flavored ice cream and dark chocolate ice cream with spicy blood orange flakes. Baskin-Robbins says each flavor stands out on its own, but they also come together for a blend of spicy and sweet.

“This unique flavor experience elevates Baskin-Robbins’ darkest chocolate flavor yet with the unexpected cool, heat of White Chocolate Ghost Pepper Ice Cream and pops of sweet spice from Blood Orange Flakes,” according to their announcement about the flavor.

As the ice cream shop’s October Flavor of the Month, it will only be around through the Halloween season, so you’ll want to grab it sometime in October. And to celebrate Halloween, Baskin-Robbins is offering 31% off scoops all day on Oct. 31, including on the new ghost pepper flavor.


In addition to the new flavor, Baskin-Robbins is also adding a cake to the menu that looks perfect for Halloween parties.

The new Trixie the Ghost Cake has a whimsical ghost face created with dark melting chocolate and a cobweb bow made of decorating icing and fudge. The cake is customizable with your favorite ice cream flavor, including Snickers or Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup, if you want to include some Halloween candy as well.



Dairy Queen’s fall Blizzards are also out now, including returning favorites Very Cherry Chip, Oreo Hot Cocoa and Pumpkin Pie.

The menu also includes a new Snickers Brownie Blizzard, which blends vanilla soft serve with Snickers pieces, brownie pieces and caramel; the Reese’s Take 5, which has Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, caramel topping, whole peanuts and pretzels; and Cinnamon Roll Centers, which blends soft cinnamon roll pieces and brown butter cinnamon topping.
