As November begins, Baskin-Robbins has announced their ice cream flavor of the month: First Class Camouflage. Like its namesake, the ice cream will feature a unique camouflage design that looks as impressive as their Wild ‘n Reckless Sherbet.
First Class Camouflage is made by combining chocolate, salty caramel and cake-flavored ice cream in order to get a unique three-way color. Customers can have the tri-colored flavor either in a cone or as a sundae topped with whipped cream, chocolate and caramel syrup, and crushed Oreos.
There are so many delicious scenarios that could be accomplished with camouflage ice cream. You could literally hide in the bushes snacking on sweets.
Okay, so not that many. Maybe just eat it at the store, or something.
Last month Dairy Queen offered the classic Pumpkin Pie as October’s Blizzard of the month. This month, since the Blizzard flavor was so shockingly popular (who would’ve guessed?), the big DQ has decided to extend its stay and keep it through November. Except, this time it’s Remixed.
What does “Remixed” entail? Shakes. Cones. Pumpkin EVERYWHERE. To put it simply, DQ is now serving the Blizzard in waffle cones and transforming it into Pumpkin Pie Royal Shakes. Could our pumpkin dreams get any sweeter? No, no they really couldn’t.
If you want to get your Pumpkin Pie Remixed on, you have until Thanksgiving to snag these treats.

Although this month may be National Peanut Butter month (and, a great month at that!), to me, November also means “Pumpkin”. So, go pumpkin crazy. I am.
With an oat crusted bottom, and a moist pumpkin spice center, it makes for a perfect addition or alternative for Thanksgiving dessert’s. I myself, had one for breakfast with a nice, big mug of Christmas Blend coffee. Oh, how I love the holidays.

After October’s Anytober deal that involved all of Subway‘s sandwiches seeing a price drop to $5, the sandwich chain has reverted back to their original prices and rotating $5 Footlong monthly deals.
