Scoopfest At Baskin-Robbins Is Going On NOW
Warm temperatures, cool desserts
Anne Marie Panoringan
It started yesterday, is going on now, and lasts until tomorrow. Scoopfest 2014 is happening at a Baskin-Robbins near you, and all you need to do is show up. A single kids scoop is a buck, two for $2, three for $3 and so on. There's also some unconfirmed rumor that (similar to an In-N-Out burger dare) this has no limits-- meaning someone could hypothetically show up with a bucket and ask for 100 scoops for $100. Hey, maybe my friends at Foodbeast should shed some light on this?
Note that the fine, albeit abbreviated print off the BR website states that applicable sales tax will be added. Also, price and participation may vary, so use this link to find your nearest location and call ahead. Can't say I didn't warn you.
There's also some contest going on that's tied into promoting the new Spiderman movie. If you're down with Instagram or Twitter, learn about it here. Naturally, their flavor of the month is called Amazing Spider-Man 2 (someone fire their marketing team already). It's red and blue, tastes like vanilla and has a dark chocolate 'web' and popping candies throughout. I opted for a double scoop of Jamoca Almond Fudge and a seasonal taste called Tax Crunch-- Kona coffee ice cream swirled with crackling chocolate and rice crunchies. Totally worth the sugar rush . . .and subsequent crash and burn.
