(Los Angeles, CA) - It is spooky stuff from Baskin-Robbins for flavor of the month in October.

Ghost peppers in ice cream? Blood orange garnish? White chocolate ice cream?

This spicy ice cream is meant to give you the chills for Halloween, and it does, in the best way.

Baskin-Robbins introduces new Spicy 'N Spooky Ice Cream for Halloween 2022

Baskin-Robbins is introducing the new Spicy 'n Spooky ice cream featuring the flavor of real ghost pepper on October 1, 2022.

The Spicy ‘n Spooky ghost pepper ice cream is made with a blend of dark chocolate ice cream and white chocolate ice cream, then topped with blood orange flakes—and real host peppers.

Jeanne Bolger, Director of Research and Development for Baskin-Robbins explains how they developed the ice cream flavor:

“As ice cream experts with more than 1,400 flavors in our library, we continue to find ways to push boundaries and incorporate exciting new ingredients into our scoops like real Ghost Pepper and our darkest chocolate yet. We’re excited to evoke the spookiness that comes with the season, using flavor elements we’ve never offered before in an ice cream, and we’re looking forward to guests’ reactions for those who are brave enough to try Spicy ‘n Spooky.”

What is ghost pepper?

Ghost peppers are known to be one of the hottest peppers in the world, but they also have a sweet taste that balances out their spice.

The peppers are grown in India and Sri Lanka, where they are dried and ground into a powder that is used as an ingredient in many Indian dishes.

Ghost pepper is a type of pepper that's commonly used by the Bhutia people. The word "bhut" literally means "ghost," which is a reference to the heat that can sometimes sneak up on you.

Measuring in at around 1,000,000 Scoville Heat Units, the ghost pepper is known for its intense heat. These peppers have a thin and easy-to-tear surface.

Final thoughts

Until now, those looking for a Halloween-inspired ice cream treat were limited to the same old vanilla and chocolate ice cream flavors.

The Spicy 'n Spooky ice cream has a hot and spicy kick with its surprising hint of ghost pepper.

A combination of rich black ice cream, white chocolate ghost pepper flavored ice cream, and blood orange flakes, this flavor is available at participating Baskin-Robbins restaurants nationwide.
