Review: Mom’s Making Cookies Baskin Robbins

(Mom’s Makin’ Cookies)

Are you a cookie dough or a cookie doughn’t kinda person? Me, I’m the kinda guy who takes a sauna on the inside of an active volcano. You know, one of those dirty barbarians who lives life on the edge by devouring raw cookie dough— flour and egg be damned! At least I’ll die with a smile on my fat, chocolate smeared face. Fortunately, Baskin Robbins is indulging my delicious death wish with May’s returning Flavor of the Month, Mom’s Making Cookies Ice Cream. This much beloved treat says f*ck the oven and let your stomach do the baking of the brown sugar flavored ice cream filled with chocolate chip cookie pieces, chocolate chips and a cookie dough batter ribbon. If I ever win a ribbon, it will absolutely be made of cookie dough batter. And I won’t unless they start handing them out for awful puns.

Doughn’t you want me baby?


Let’s start at the base of this cookie shaped mountain with the brown sugar ice cream.  I would probably put it on par with Baskin Robbins mascarpone in the “I’m going to be on the treadmill for a few extra hours tomorrow” level of deliciousness. It’s rich and buttery without every being too sweet. Let’s be real though, this flavor was created by someone who has, on more than one occasion, passed out on the floor of a bathroom with one arm draped across the toilet loosely clutching a syringe with nothing but liquefied cookie bits left inside.


Like you’ve never done lines of Keebler Special K…

That’s right, Baskin Robbin’s hired the Cookie Monster as a flavor scientist. Our lab coat donning blue bud then proceeded to grudgingly allow them to include a little bit of ice cream with his cup o’ cookies. The chocolate chip cookie pieces aren’t mom’s fresh out of the oven cookie crack, but they are decently sized and passably good in an “off the shelf chewy cookie” way.

A spoonful of cookies helps the diabetes go down.

The cookie dough ribbon mixes particularly well with the brown sugar flavored base, and the grit of the dough reminds me of brown sugar crystals. That is heavenly in my world which revolves around a molten cookie dough core, but the poor unfortunate souls who have not seen the light may be put off. The chocolate chips do not bring a unique taste element, but they do contribute a nice chocolate snap in the textural department while not detracting from the dish. A masterstroke that only the deft hand of one who is truly the monster of cookies can wield.

As you can see, I totally inhaled.


Mom’s Making Cookies Ice Cream masterfully walks the line between chasing the cookie dragon and mindless marketing ploy. All of the elements work well together, and if anything, I would like a little of the cookie dough ribbon… But I’m much further along in my cookiediction than most.

Cookie Monster’s love letter to CookiEchidna this Mother’s Day certainly has me feeling the love.

Quick Review: Baskin-Robbins Oreo’N Caramel

Oreo'N Caramel Baskin-Robbin's Ice CreamKeep your “care-a-mel” out of my “karmul.” This is how one ends up with a sore back and told one can keep certain things out of certain other things. Enough stupid sayings such as that spew out of my mouth that I should consider running for president in 2021. Fortunately, I’ll have some tasty dulce de leche meets cookies and cream to comfort me this March. You can find my quick review of Baskin-Robbin’s Oreo’n Caramel Ice Cream over at The Impulsive Buy


Quick Review: Baskin-Robbins Love Potion #31

Baskin-Robbins Love Potion #31


People are far too judgmental. Should a person be ostracized for eccentric tastes? Should a man or woman be shunned by society and forced to live a solitary existence because they happen to own an angry inflatable love doll that looks like Spock? I say no! I say a Klingon Bat’leth shaped dildo is a sign of a playful and adventurous soul. Forgetting said article of nerdy love fun in one’s carryon luggage should not result in being added to the No Fly List! Happened to a friend… If you’d like to learn more about why said friend might need the aid of a Love Potion, find my review of Baskin-Robbins Love Potion #31 at The Impulsive Buy. It’s magic may be limited to the realm of taste (of which I could clearly use some help), but that’s good enough for me. (more…)

Quick Review: Baskin-Robbins Cannoli be With You Ice Cream

Baskin-Robbins Cannoli be With You

Baskin-Robbins appears to have a problem with mondegreens. Either Bob Baskin or Robby Robbins conflated Italian love with Itlian pastry when they saw a moon made of pizza. Maybe they aren’t the only ones… I bet the ninja turtles got my back on this one, so who cares, right? I can’t see another reason that Baskin-Robbins Cannoli be With You Ice Cream is the Febrary Flavor of the Month. Cannoli doesn’t exactly scream “I Love you.” I mean, sure, I’m a fat Sicilian at heart so Cannoli is one of the fastest ways into my bed, but I’m not so sure that applies to others as readily.

Quick Review: Baskin-Robbins Bobsled Brownie Ice Cream

Baskin-Robbins Bobsled Brownie Ice Cream

Normally when it’s so cold the snowmen in my yard have committed suicide by bonfire to stay warm, I’m not in the mood for ice cream. But Despite the Killer Snow Goonesque horror show that looks like a bad CW pilot for CSI: North Pole, I was excited to learn of Baskin-Robbins Bobsled Brownie Ice Cream. Blonde brownie pieces and a fudge crackle ribbon mixed with milk-chocolate-mousse and butter-caramel-flavored ice cream is the temptation of the month for January.
