Red Velvet Cake Ice Cream @ Baskin Robbins

If you consider yourself a true lover of ice cream, you will stop reading this right now and immediately drive yourself to your local Baskin Robbins. Seriously, I’ve had some great cake ice creams in the past, but this one, well, let’s just say it takes the cake. Pun completely intended!

Rich, creamy, cake-y to the max, the Red Velvet Cake ice cream at 31-Flavors is so good that I don’t know why I even bothered with a second scoop of my usual favorite Chocolate Fudge. I shoulda just got two scoops of Red Velvet Cake, and you know what? Next time I go, I will!

But if you’re interested in this amazingness, you gotta act fast because Red Velvet Cake ice cream is the flavor of the month for December, and, in just a few short days, December will be over. Forever. So, check it out while you can, and in case you’re wondering…that white, creamy stuff swirled throughout the scoop is frosting and it is AH-MAZING!

I’m not kidding, the flavor profile for this rocking ice cream is so subtle and lovely, you’d swear you wear eating a vastly more expensive cone.

This is Christmas for your mouth, amigos…so, start celebrating today!

UPDATE: 31-Cent Scoop Night @ Baskin Robbins (2009)

OK, I don’t know if it was the cold weather or this crazy Swine Flu mania, but for some reason, there was virtually no line to speak of at this year’s 31-Cent Scoop Night at our local Baskin Robbins. And we went to the “good” Baskin Robbins on Victory this time too. Crazy, huh?

All I know is that the smaller crowds made it that much easier for myself and our friend Mike to sneak back inside for round two while his wife Patty and our other friend Elyse waited outside with Christine and Greta. Yee-haw!

Oh yeah, and this year, the scoops were way bigger than last time too…so, thank you, Baskin Robbins for another awesome adventure in cheap ice cream. You guys seriously rock!

31-Cent Scoop Night @ Baskin Robbins (2009)

Believe it or not, it has been a whole year since Christine and I celebrated 31-Cent Scoop Night at the Baskin Robbins in Glendale with my brother and sister-in-law, which means…ta da…the second best deal in the ice cream biz is happening again tonight between 5-10PM. Yay!

I know we’ve enjoyed many discounted and free meals and such during the past year, but honestly, nothing in God’s green Earth beats paying 31-cents for a scoop of freaking primo ice cream. So, check out all the pertinent details here and see ya in line, amigos!

31-Cent Scoop Night @ Baskin Robbins

For some of us, yesterday was a pretty monumental day. And I’m not talking about Hillary Clinton on Bill O’Reilly; dirty Miley Cyrus pics in Vanity Fair; or the fact that that whiny, “false start” crybaby Brooke White was finally put out of her misery (not to mention, ours!) on “American Idol”.

No way, baby. In this household, Wednesday’s big story was all about ice cream!

For those of you who missed it, sorry for not alerting you earlier, but last night was “31-cent scoop night” at Baskin Robbins stores throughout the Southland! And with a limit of a whopping ten scoops per party, we were kind of in hog heaven. Emphasis on the hog.

Hard-core ice cream fans out there will remember that not so long ago, “31-cent scoop night” used to be known as “free scoop night”…but inflation being what it is, I guess even Baskin Robbins had to up the ante a bit. But hey, thirty-one cents for a scoop of tasty ice cream is still kind of a steal. And ninety-three cents for a triple scoop, wow…forget about it.

So though we didn’t manage to hit more than one store last night — which we had actually discussed at one point a couple weeks back — Christine, my brother Ryan and sister-in-law Laura and I did make sure and max out our ten scoop minimum at the rocking 31 Flavors near their place in Glendale.

The line was kind of crazy long, but it moved fast and the crowd was awesome. Even at 9:30, there were people out there from every age and ethnic group imaginable…seriously, it looked like a scene from “Crash” minus the cheesy, overwrought drama. And we were all so damn happy to be scoring such a cheap scoop of primo ice cream that I swear to God, we were practically singing! Ah, ice cream, the great social unifier…

And once we got inside and scored our triple scoop sugar cones — actually, the ladies only had double scoops — we were kinda giddy with delight. I’m not sure if it was the sugar or the price, but wow, we were seriously loving life.

Anyway, as you can see from the picture above, I sampled my all-time-favorite Chocolate fudge with some Chocolate Peanut Butter in the middle and some tasty Nutty Coconut on the bottom. It was delicious…and best of all, the entire adventure ended up costing us a grand total of $3.10! Crazy, huh?

So, until next years “31-cent scoop night”, see ya at the freezer…
