Warm Chocolate Cookie Ice Sandwiches At Baskin-Robbins And MORE ! #BehindTheBRScoop

What if I told you that Baskin-Robbins is offering more than just 31 flavors this summer? What if I told you that they’ve been doing that for DECADES and maybe you haven’t noticed? I’m somewhat of a creature of habit, so I understand. When I walk into Baskin-Robbins, I get two scoops of rainbow sherbert and call it a day. I’ve been doing that for 20+ years. I don’t venture off and try new flavors. I’m not that kind of person! My husband, on the other hand, never tries the same flavor TWICE! That’s what makes the world go ’round!

I was so excited to hear about all the amazing offerings that Baskin-Robbins provides to their customers all year round. I had NO CLUE! And just W-A-I-T until you hear about some of their new surprises (like Polar Pizza and donut ice cream sandwiches topped with hot fudge – SHUT IT DOWN!)

WHAT?! Yes, through a third party, Baskin-Robbins is looking to incorporate home delivery to their franchises. They are in a testing phase right now – just at the beginning. BUT CAN YOU IMAGINE BEING ABLE TO CALL UP FOR A PINT OF YOUR FAVORITE ICE CREAM? I’m shouting!

Yes, I tried it and it was magical.

Baskin-Robbins is currently testing this product in Las Vegas. If you have a trip planned out there – be sure to head in and ask for one!!

Picture a donut cut in half and topped with confectionary sugar filled with ice cream and sealed fudge. BLISS.

You can get a better view of this bad boy in the below video. It’s a look at all the snaps Audrey and I took while visiting the BR / DD headquarters.

Children of the 80s might remember the Polar Pizza. Baskin-Robbins decided to bring it back and parents around the world will rejoice!! I BEGGED the people in the room to offer delivery of the Polar Pizza. Can’t you just visualize your family ordering one every Friday during movie night?

You can have a cookie or a brownie base. Then you top it with Baskin-Robbins ice cream and additional goodness like marshmallow, fudge, caramel or items from the toppings bar. Customers will pick up slices just like a pizza and enjoy !!

If I’m being honest with you, these were my favorite offerings and they are available RIGHT NOW. Warm Cookies that melt in your mouth sandwiching delicious Baskin-Robbins ice cream. Biting into this was simply heaven. I , of course, loved the chocolate chip cookie one. The chips were melting !! OH MAN! Out of control.

Every month, you can expect a brand new flavor from Baskin-Robbins and this year they are introducing brand new partnerships including Sour Patch Kids, Chips Ahoy and Milky Way. We sampled a dozen new flavors that will all release this year and I have to admit… I didn’t hate that part of the day. I kept thinking about my kids and how they would totally hate me if they knew what I was doing. LOL!

Did you know that on the 31st day of every month, you can get a scoop of ice cream from Baskin-Robbins for $1.31? You don’t need a coupon! Just head on in! This is all year long. What a great idea!

One more great notice before I end this post!! You can order your cakes online! You no longer have to head into your local store to create the cake of your dreams. Nope! Make your design requests from the comforts of your home (or wherever else you choose to be.

I’m sorry to say you cannot have this custom-made cake that Audrey and I created. Yes, we piped those flowers- I SWEAR! Our husbands didn’t believe us! That’s how much faith they have. HUMPH.

All in all, I had a great time with the BR team. Can’t wait to enjoy all these amazing offerings this year with my family.
