Cold Stone Creamery will be turning its Cake Batter Ice Cream black for October with its Boo Batter flavor. The limited-edition Boo Batter flavor will come mixed with Kit Kats, Oreos, orange and white cream, and M&Ms. Fans can also add an even more festive look to their Boo Batter treat by adding a black or orange waffle cone or bowl for a ghoulishly fun treat.
Cold Stone Creamery isn’t the first restaurant to bring its customers a Halloween themed specialty item. Over the last several years, many restaurants have made such items somewhat of a seasonal tradition. Burger King had the Halloween Whopper a few years ago that featured a black hamburger bun. Last year the company returned with another Halloween themed burger named the Nightmare King, this time featuring a green bun, filled with ground beef, crispy chicken, bacon, American cheese, and mayonnaise.
Starbucks also has a history of Halloween themed drinks, with coffee lovers getting their Halloween fix from drinks like 2017’s Zombie Frappuccino and 2018’s The Witch’s Brew Frappuccino, or the many secret menu items like the fan-favorite Nightmare Before Christmas inspired drinks. Even IHOP is getting into the Halloween spirit with an entire menu based around the upcoming animated The Addams Family movie releasing on October 11th, starring Oscar Isaac, Charlize Theron, Chloë Grace Moretz, Finn Wolfhard, Nick Kroll, Snoop Dogg, Bette Midler, And Allison Janney.
If you’re in the mood for something a little stronger than Frappuccino for the Halloween season, Applebee’s has you covered with their new $1 Vampire drink, made with rum, strawberry, passion fruit, dragon fruit, and pineapple juice topped off with vampire fangs and a cherry.
Horror-themed items are at an all-time high, with these themes items no longer being limited to October. Fans will also remember the huge success Baskin-Robbins received over the summer with its Stranger Things inspired Scoops Ahoy promotion, and the IT Frappuccino created by Starbucks.
