1837 - Trapper Peter LaBeck killed by grizzly bear at El Tejon [story]


Santa Clarita resident Kelsey Lien is among the top 10 finalists competing in the Baskin-Robbins National Online Flavor Creation Contest. If her creation, Nutty Cream Cheese Brownie, wins, the new flavor will be available in Baskin-Robbins shops in July 2012.

The 10 finalists’ flavors are listed on the Baskin-Robbins website. Fans can visit the site to vote for their favorite ice cream creations through December 12. To vote, click here.

Each finalist will receive free ice cream for a year. The grand prize winner will have their flavor added to the Baskin-Robbins ice cream library and receive a trip to the Baskin-Robbins headquarters in Boston to spend a day bringing their ice cream flavor to life. The trip to Boston will include a three-night stay at a landmark Boston hotel and $1,000 in spending money.

From Oct. 1 through Oct. 21, virtual ice cream flavor entries were accepted on the Baskin-Robbins website. Nearly 40,000 consumers mixed and matched their own ingredients from a selection of 31 base flavors, a variety of ribbons, and a host of mix-ins. New base flavors and mix-ins available to the “dessert chefs” included Strawberry or Mango Yogurt, French Toast Ice Cream flavors; Oreo, Cherry, and Whipped Cream flavor ribbons; and Blondie Brownie, Golden Oreo, and chocolate covered cookie inclusions.

The 10 finalists and their ice cream flavor creations include:

Magic Bar, Leslie Pearson, Orange, CT: This seven layer bar consists of coconut ice cream, dark fudge, graham cracker and chocolate chips.

Lemon Icebox Pie, Robert Ryan Reece, Bayonet Point, FL: Tangy lemon ice cream, whipped cream swirls and honey-sweet graham cracker pieces.

Snap, Crackle, and Caramel, Christina Brumfield, Colorado Springs, CO: White Chocolate Mousse ice cream with chocolate rice crunchies and caramel sauce.

Carmel Batter Bash, Marcia Campbell, Lexington, Mass.: Cake Batter ice cream with Heath Bar and chocolate chips.

Chippity Chocolately Chew, Paula Brooks, Westford, Mass.: Chocolate Chip ice cream with a fudge ribbon and fudge brownie pieces.

Cold Mine, Judy Gewuerz, Fresh Meadows, NY: Chocolate ice cream with an Oreo icing ribbon, walnuts and fudge brownie pieces.

Nutty Creamcheese Brownie, Kelsey Lien, Santa Clarita, CA: Chocolate fudge ice cream with a cream cheese ribbon, walnuts and fudge brownie pieces.

“For the second year in a row the culinary team at Baskin-Robbins was impressed and amazed with the creative flavor submissions we received,” said Stan Frankenthaler, Dunkin’ Brands Executive Chef and Vice President of Innovation. “It’s a challenge to narrow down the submissions to ten finalists, but we are confident that ice cream lovers across the nation will have fun voting for the next great flavor to be featured in Baskin-Robbins dipping cabinet in 2012.”
