You know that summer isn't too far away when the big ice cream makers start offering new products. This one sounds interesting: Baskin-Robbins, the world's largest chain of ice cream specialty shows, is introducing Ice Cream Whoopie Pies to the Houston area.
Originating as a New England phenomenon and Pennsylvania Amish tradition, whoopie pies are traditionally made with two pieces of round chocolate cake filled with a sweet, creamy vanilla frosting in the middle.
The Baskin-Robbins version adds a cool twist by allowing customers to customize their order with any of the chain's 31 flavors as the whoopie pie filling.
The made-to-order Ice Cream Whoopie Pies, which retail for $3.29 each, are available at the 39 participating Baskin-Robbins shops in the Greater Houston area for a limited time only through early June.
