Finding the perfect ice cream flavor can be as frustrating as dating a snowman; by the time you're ready to commit, all the good ones have melted away. Find the One among 31 with today's Groupon to Baskin Robbins' Williamsburg and Newport News locations.
Ever since Baskin Robbins first began its dessert fashion show in 1953, more than 1,000 original flavors have sauntered across the nation's tongue runways, 31 at a time. With the ice creamery's iconic pink sampling spoons as your guide, taste-test as many as you like until you find the flavor that gives your soul a back rub, whether it's a classic flavor single scoop ($2.29 +) of rocky road or a seasonal scoop of Love Potion #31 (white chocolate and raspberry ice cream loaded with raspberry-filled chocolate hearts) and America's birthday cake. Otherwise, keep it simple and bury your face within the flavor of the month—Lucky Mint. The ice-alchemists at Baskin Robbins can also transmute their ice cream and sherbet into drinkable desserts such as floats, freezes, and shakes ($3.99 +). Noble chocolate chips donate their bodies to ice-cream-swirled science in the premium-churned chocolate chip shake, and custom floats let treatsters plunge scoops of their favorite ice cream into a fizzy soda-pop bath.
To celebrate events of greater import, such as Christmas or baby's first doctoral thesis, choose one of Baskin Robbins' variety of freeze-baked ice cream cakes (prices vary by location). Classic cakes let loose flavors of white sponge and devil's food cake across their thick, creamy tundra, while roll cakes such as the bunny roll, wrap ice cream and bright purple, rabbit-faced icing into a sleeping bag bonnes bouche. Healthy hedonists, meanwhile, can indulge in the shop's BRight Choices—fat-free, dairy-free, and sugarless assortments of ice cream, sorbet, and frozen yogurt.
