Baskin Robbins Middle East launches limited edition Ice Cream Macarons and Ice Cream Pizza

As an ice cream artisan, eating store-bought or commercial ice cream is a rare occurrence, but when I saw these limited edition menu items at Baskin Robbins, I had to try at least one of them. The ice cream macarons are a best-seller in South Korea and are in fact manufactured there.

BR ME also launched ice cream pizzas in individual slices as well as full-size ice cream pizzas.

The limited edition items are available in the Gulf region and I've tried two of the macaron flavors, Strawberry Cheesecake and Pralines 'n Cream. For full reviews of both, check out this review on the Strawberry Cheesecake and this for the Pralines 'n Cream.

Innards are a must! The pink-colored macarons sandwich Baskin Robbins' Strawberry Cheesecake ice cream.

The ice cream was fluffy and light as is expected of most commercial ice creams, but the macarons were very impressive: they were tender and chewy and had impressive feet! They were not cheap, at around 17-18 SAR a pop. But definitely worth the try!

The Pralines 'n Cream was much sweeter than the former, but did have just a few candied pecan bits here and there for added texture (could have used much more).

It was beautiful and fun to eat, but again the macarons were the star. A homemade gourmet version with artisan ice cream and giant macs would slap.


Have you tried any of these items? Which would you prefer?
