February Baskin Robins Review: Jamoca Almond Fudge


Chloe Mendoza and Ari Matias Perez


I know, I know, my whole thing here is hating everything I try.  However, I am not completely doomed to an ever ending cycle of punishing my tastebuds.  I’ve always loved anything coffee-related.  In fact, I could say the coffee flavor is my favorite flavor of all time.  Luckily, this month we got to try out the flavor Jamoca Almond Fudge.  

This is by far the best flavor I’ve tried out and probably the best flavor at Baskin Robbins!  It is the perfect combination of coffee, chocolate fudge, and bits of almond.  Not to mention the visible appealingness of this ice cream.  Just by looking at it you know it is going to be amazing.  I can totally see this ice cream on one of those aesthetic Pinterest accounts.  

I would 100% recommend this flavor to my fellow coffee lovers and give this a 10/10.  If you hate coffee flavored things, I would advise you to skip out on this one since it is predominantly coffee.  If you disagree, I won’t say you’re wrong, but, you’re wrong.   

If you, however, are allergic to nuts please do not try this flavor…try Jamoca instead. 



My curse is lactose intolerance. However, if I had to choose between a hospital bed and never eating another scoop of Jamoca Almond Fudge, the choice would be clear! This month’s flavor under review is by far my favorite. In just one bite, hints of coffee dance on the taste buds, reminding me of early morning trip to a cafe. In recent years I’ve developed a unique appreciation for coffee and coffee flavored things. That’s likely why this flavor sits so high on my list. 

Prominent chunks of almond go on to contrast the mild sweetness of the ice cream. I’ve never been a huge fan of rot your teeth sweet treats, and my addiction to this flavor perfectly demonstrates that. Jamoca Almond Fudge is striking and just sweet enough to leave me satisfied. At this time of the year, I feel that Jamoca Almond Fudge is special. February is still a bit chilly, but the sun is beginning to peek out from behind the clouds. The air seems lighter and a cold, semi-sweet treat is just the thing to make it a perfect day. 

To all my coffee-lovers out there, this is the flavor for you! To everyone else, this is STILL the flavor for you! I 10/10 recommend that everyone try Jamoca Almond Fudge at least once in their life. I’m sure there’s others out there like Ari and I who can’t get enough!!
