Guests can also spread joy this month by donating to children in need through the Community Cones Program
CANTON, Mass. (July 31, 2019) – Baskin-Robbins, the world’s largest chain of specialty ice cream shops, is sliding into August with the latest Flavor of the Month, OREO® Mudslide. This flavor is a chocolate-y, OREO®-infused dream featuring mudslide-flavored ice cream, OREO® pieces and fudge ribbon swirls. For guests on the go, the August Flavor of the Month blends perfectly into a Cappuccino Blast®: a mixture of OREO® Mudslide with espresso ice cream, boosted with a chocolate syrup drizzle in the cup and topped with whipped cream, chocolate syrup drizzle, and OREO® cookie pieces.
Baskin-Robbins guests can also serve their own little bit of happiness this August through the Community Cones Program. At checkout, guests will have the opportunity to donate to the Baskin-Robbins Joy in Childhood Foundation, an organization dedicated to bringing joy to children battling hunger and illness. Each donation helps to provide aid to children in the store’s community through grants to local children’s hospitals, charities and food banks. Guests who donate will also receive special discounts and offers for in-store purchases to encourage everyone to pay it forward.
“While many children have spent the past several weeks enjoying a break from school, there are thousands more in need of joy during the summer and beyond,” said Carol Austin, Vice President of Marketing for Baskin-Robbins. “We are thrilled that our Community Cones program contributes to the Joy in Childhood Foundation, which donated over $2.5 million in 2018 to organizations dedicated to battling child hunger and illness. This month, we hope that guests not only enjoy our decadently delicious OREO® Mudslide flavor of the month, but also help us make a difference in their local community.”
To help sweeten the end of summer, Baskin-Robbins will host a Non-Dairy Sampling Day* on Sunday, August 4 from 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. so fans can taste test one ounce of the new Non-Dairy flavors: Non-Dairy Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough and Non-Dairy Chocolate Extreme. Ice cream lovers can also enjoy family time over ice cream before the kids are back to school with Celebrate 31, which invites guests to enjoy $1.70 ice cream scoops or two pre-packed quarts for $7.99 on August 31**.
August is also an exciting month for Baskin-Robbins cakes as guests can officially order PhotoCakes at every location nationwide. Baskin-Robbins’ PhotoCakes will take cake customization to the next level for guests everywhere. The limits are endless with PhotoCakes, which can include everything from full color photography to a hand drawn picture or one of the several licensed images to choose from.
