Baskin-Robbins to Offer Turkey Cakes and Turkey Leg Ice Cream Treats

Nov 16, 2012 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) -- Baskin-Robbins, a chain of ice cream specialty shops, is offering ice cream lovers an extra treat this Thanksgiving holiday with its delicious Turkey Cake and new Turkey Leg individual novelty, now available at participating Baskin-Robbins locations.

According to a release, the Baskin-Robbins Turkey Cake can be customized with any (or two) of Baskin-Robbins' ice cream flavors and is glazed with a sweet caramel topping. It serves 8-12 people.

For those who can't take on a whole Turkey Cake, Baskin-Robbins is offering a new Turkey Leg individual novelty. This frozen treat features Baskin-Robbins' ice cream, a sugar cone and caramel glaze, playfully disguised as one of everyone's favorite parts of a turkey. The eye-catching items are sold as a pair.

"Baskin-Robbins is delighted to offer guests these delicious and fanciful desserts for Thanksgiving," said Stan Frankenthaler, Baskin-Robbins Executive Chef and Vice President of Innovation at Dunkin' Brands. "Our turkey-themed treats will be sure to have Thanksgiving guests asking for seconds. We doubt there will be any leftovers when these desserts arrive on holiday tables." The Company found: -Seventy-three percent of Americans who eat Thanksgiving turkey prefer their turkey to be roasted over deep-fried (13 percent) or smoked (8 percent).

-Fifty-two percent chose breast meat, followed distantly by the thigh and leg (each 14 percent), among other popular choices.

-Applying a unique spin to a Thanksgiving recipe is mostly done with side dishes (35 percent), followed closely by desserts (29 percent).

-Indeed, when asked to select the most important part of the Thanksgiving meal, aside from the turkey, more than a quarter (28 percent) chose dessert though side dishes ranked first, selected by 57 percent of Americans.

-Given a list of popular Thanksgiving side dishes, stuffing emerges as the favorite (33 percent), followed by mashed potatoes (26 percent), sweet potatoes (11 percent), and cranberry sauce (9 percent).

-More than eight in 10 (82 percent) cite enjoying it with friends and family, while 9 percent of Americans say it's the leftovers they most relish.

-Along these lines, spending time with loved ones is Americans' favorite Thanksgiving Day activity (62 percent), besides eating. Watching football (19 percent) and parades (7 percent) follow.

Baskin-Robbins is an ice cream and frozen dessert franchise.
