Before ice cream, cones were only filled with cheerleading chants and an overwhelming sense of responsibility for organizing traffic. Enjoy a conical dessert with today’s Groupon to Baskin Robbins in Virginia Beach. Choose between the following options:
- For $5, you get $10 worth of ice cream and frozen treats.
- For $12, you get $25 toward ice-cream cakes and pies.
Having evolved through more than 1,000 frozen flavors since 1953, Baskin Robbins engages sub-zero palates with a rotating selection of classic cones, seasonal scoops, and cool cakes and pies. Customers can nuzzle old favorites such as pralines ‘n’ cream or smash faces into the most recent flavor of the month, winter chocolate marshmallow ($2.29+), a hot-chocolate-flavored ice cream that snackers must blow on for one minute before delving into its whipped-cream ribbons and speckles of marshmallow dough. Ice alchemists at Baskin Robbins can also transmute ice cream into shakes and smoothies ($3.99+), or caffeinated cappuccino blasts blended with ice cream, coffee, and electrified caramel syrup. A line-up of freeze-baked ice-cream cakes and pies includes crowd-pleasers such as the Grasshopper pie, a frosty disk of mint-chocolate-chip ice cream, fudge, and whipped cream, held together by an Oreo-cookie crust. Visitors may also pick up hand-packed pints ($3.99+) from the grab ‘n‘ go cooler, to be enjoyed at home or impulsively consumed in the parking lot.
