Favorite Flavor--and Giveaway!

As many of you know, I declared this Ice Cream Week at YA Fresh--just ‘cuz I like ice cream.

Kelly asked us about our favorite ice cream spots, and surprised some of us (well, at least me) by saying she’d actually worked in a Baskin-Robbins back-when.

I never worked in one, but one of my closest friends did, and I will never forget the night I wandered in and had her push a free sundae at me.


What had happened was some guy had ordered it, then realized he had no money and left, promising to come back. He never did. Short of throwing it out, she pulled it back out of the freezer and handed it to me.

It was blueberry cheesecake ice cream with marshmallow topping. Which sounds weird, but was actually really good. In fact, it set me on course for a lifetime of loving Baskin-Robbins’ marshmallow topping. (Thanks, dude!) Although my preference is on chocolate ice cream.

My all-time favorite flavor is also from Baskin-Robbins, but something they (sadly) discontinued years ago: Peppermint Fudge Ribbon. It was the bright pink peppermint ice cream that they still serve, but with thick, chunky, icy ribbons of fudge. Perfection. So if you’re reading this, Baskin-Robbins, you’ve got my vote to bring it back!

Now, in celebration of Ice Cream Week, we’re going to giveaway a $10 gift card to either Baskin-Robbins or Cold Stone’s (your choice). Enter by leaving a comment here and telling us YOUR favorite ice cream flavor. The winner randomly will be chosen and announced on Monday morning. And feel free to enter again and again...we realize that “favorite” doesn’t always stop at one!

Baskin Robbins- Nutty Coconut. They discontinued it for TWO YEARS (hey, I did lose about 8 lbs over that time) but then they just brought it back! Keep your fingers crossed (and send a happy little email) and maybe peppermint fudge ribbon will come back again :)

I like either anything with peanut butter in it - I'm totally addicted to peanut butter!

OR something with raspberry flavor :)

Laurena said...

I love just about any kind of ice cream, except the plain chocolate. Compared to all of the other kinds, it just seems boring.

My all time favourite...and the kind I order every time I can...would be chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream. It is delicious.

brendajean said...

Praline and cream from Baskin Robbins is an all time classic too!
