Baskin Robbins used to have a licorice ice cream that they brought out around Halloween. My sister took me shopping once when I was 9 (29 years ago) and we had never seen licorice ice cream before so of course we had to get double scoops. It looked awful but was delicious, not a flavor usually associated with ice cream. I've dreamed of it ever since but never saw it again. Obviously not a big seller. Anyone ever see this?

misterzerox,
Seen it, bought it, ate it, and loved it! It turned my mouth,lips, and innards black, but it was worth it... it smiled all the way down!
I understand that Ben & Jerry's does a batch of it every so often for sale exclusively in their stores. The nearest one to me (that I am aware of, anyway) is on West Franklin Street in downtown Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Someone there told me about it, but it was gone long before I managed to get there.
Anyone else got any ideas, short of churning up your own?

The local ice cream parlor in Carlton, Oregon always had licorice and banana nut ice cream when I was growing up. The black tongue was worth it for the licorice

Coldstone had it last year. Hopefully they'll bring it back.

I think it's only a seasonal flavor, but Shady Glen in Manchester, CT has an amazing licorice chip flavor. Definitely was wary about trying it, but it is delicious!

Baskin Robbins does it again, at least the black tongue part - last wek my daughter ordered a flavor like "Very Berry" or something - it was an ice or sherbert - blackberry/blueberry/other berry - and she looked terrible: black lips, teeth, tongue - I guess they use they same dye on Halloween Licorice!
