It’s time to clean out underneath your couch cushions!
Find that hidden change and head to Baskin Robbins. Tonight is 31 cent scoop night from 5-10 p.m.
Growing up, my family made an occasional trek to a Baskin Robbins across the street from our neighborhood. To get there we would walk down the street past three houses to our local park, take a right on the bike path, follow the creek underneath the street overpass, and hike up a small grassy incline.
We would make our way to the door, step in, and inhale the sweet smell of sugar cones.
Choosing one ice cream flavor from the 31 varieties was (and still can be) a big decision. I wavered between quarterback crunch (vanilla with caramel and chocolate covered Rice Krispie pieces) and mint chocolate chip. My little brother would nearly always choose that terrible pink bubble gum flavored ice cream, suck out the gum pieces, and save them to be chewed last. Ick.
As I can recall…my dad preferred fruit flavors, black walnut or vanilla and my mom likes toffee.
It’s a small memory, these family ice cream outings, but oh-so-sweet to remember now. The price is right to start a tradition tonight!
