Even if fatigue-hued frozen dessert isn't necessarily the most tempting to you, it also sounds like it tastes amazing! It's a combo of three flavors: chocolate (the brown, obvi), "salty" caramel (the tan), and vanilla cake (the green). Yum!

The flavor, called "First Class Camouflage," is available by itself during the month of November, as well as part of a "First Class Camouflage Layered Sundae," which would serve up the ice cream with Oreo pieces, caramel praline topping, hot fudge, and whipped cream. You could also get it in a camouflage waffle cone or bowl. Color-coordinated ice cream? Yes, please!

Usually, you might expect a patriotic ice cream flavor to come in the standard red, white, and blue, but this camo-inspired spin sounds like a delicious change of pace to mark Veterans Day and pay tribute to our troops.

Baskin-Robbins also notes that on Veterans Day, the company will donate 10 cents from each ice cream scoop sold in its US locations to the United Service Organizations (USO), in honor of US troops. Gotta love that!

Would you try this new flavor? How do you usually observe Veterans Day?
