Baskin-Robbins Offers Camouflage Ice Cream In Honor Of Veterans Day

Camouflage Ice Cream

In honor of Veterans Day, Baskin-Robbins is offering the limited ‘First Class Camouflage’ flavor through the month of November. It is a combination of Chocolate, Caramel, and Vanilla Cake flavors, making up respectively the brown, tan, and green colorway of the ice cream. Along with ‘First Class Camouflage’, Baskin-Robbins is also offering a camouflage waffle cone, and the First Class Camouflage Layered Sundae, which adds hot fudge, caramel praline, chopped OREO cookie pieces, and whipped cream to the mix.


Additionally, on Veterans Day, Baskin-Robbins will donate 10 cents from each scoop of ice cream sold at its US locations to the USO.

As far as flavoring, it’s not too bad. The caramel is definitely the dominate flavor, and the vanilla tastes pretty sweet. The cone, a standard sugar waffle cone, was a nice touch.

It doesn’t matter if you call it Veterans Day, Armistice Day, or Remembrance Day, it all started the same place. At 11:11 on November 11th, 1918, the Germans signed documents agreeing to end the so-called “Great War” with the Allied Powers. So traumatizing was the First World War that the very next year we began to commemorate its ending, but at the time we honored only the dead from that conflict.

It wasn’t until the 1950s that we began to remember all Veterans, regardless of conflict, or period of service. The US Congress made Veterans Day an official National holiday in 1954.

Today, we join our brothers and sisters in freedom loving nations around the world in honoring those who serve. There’s a saying that is most often associated with the Viet Nam conflict but I think it applies to all Veterans, “All gave some, Some gave all.”

Today, some of us will participate in parades or other events, but I think we all could take a cue from our Commonwealth partners and take a moment of silence for our Fallen.

SSD salutes our fellow Veterans. Thank you for your service.
