Baskin Robbins announced that among April’s Flavors of the Month is “Sour Patch Kids Redberry Blast.” The sweet treat is made with red raspberry and marshmallow ice creams which are swirled with a Redberry Sour Patch Kids ribbon. Baskin Robbins will also offer the new flavor in a sundae with marshmallow toppings, whipped cream and tons of Sour Patch Kids gummies. So…eating copious amounts of sugar is still popular, in case you were curious.
Not to sound overly critical, but this is all a little misguided. As a nightly ice cream consumer and huge SPK fan, Baskin Robbins’ new flavor sounds nauseating. Half the reason people love and continue to buy Sour Patch Kids is because they’re wonderfully sour. There’s something wrong with combining sour and marshmallows. You don’t see anyone crushing up Warheads and sprinkling them inside a s’mores, do you?
