We’re not sure that it’s all that great for your teeth, but it’s definitely a treat for your stomach.
2. Strawberry Cheesecake
We can’t think of many people who aren’t fans of this Baskin Robbins flavor after they try it.
After all, strawberry cheesecake is one of the best desserts in the whole wide world, so incorporating it into an ice cream flavor is nothing less than genius.
It has a spiral of tart, juicy strawberry jam going through it, along with some delicious chunks of cheesecake base that leave our mouths watering.
There are also some items that you can add to this dessert that work perfectly, those being the hot fudge or the whipped cream.
You honestly don’t really need to add much to this one to make it tastier though, just eat it alongside a waffle cone and enjoy.
