Bakin Robbins' newest vegan option is an oat milk-based ice cream. The ice cream company decided to expand its menu to accommodate vegan dietary needs in its 2,500 United States locations. This non-dairy option comes just in time for the hot summer weather.
In a press release, Shannon Blakely, VP of Marketing & Culinary at Baskin Robbins, explains the brand's intention: "We're a brand that's all about creating new flavor experiences and with so many people living plant-based or flexitarian lifestyles today, we couldn't be more excited to launch our new oat milk-based option."
Excited by the new inclusive product, the Massachusetts Baskin Robbins chain announced the new Non-Dairy Strawberry Streusel ice cream is the official Flavor of the Month for May 2021.
