Baskin-Robbins 31 Flavors

Mint Chocolate Chip

Baskin-Robbins, better known for their "31 Flavors," is a franchise of ice cream stores from California that I haven't been to in a long time. In fact, it's been so long that I think that this is the first time that I've seen their new logo. Some things haven't changed though: my favorite of the 31 flavors has always been the Mint Chocolate Chip...and in a cup instead of a cone (I think it is just more of that mental conditioning that I got as a kid). The ice cream is refreshing, using only very thin pieces of chocolate in it instead of anything too brawny. They still have the pink spoon too.

We've got Ben & Jerry's out in Singapore now, but not 31 Flavors. Then again, there is always the S$1 (US$0.60) ice cream carts out on the street, which are surely much cheaper than the US$2.50 single scoops here.

hi travelling hungryboy, i'm the opposite.i'm a singaporean now in CA,Bay Area.

i've tried marble slab creamery and cold stone in the bay area. i felt it is better (texture, creaminess) than those ice-cream chains in SG such as Hagen Daaz.

Hey Hungryboys, Baskin n Robbins 31 also have many outlets in Jakarta, infact u should come n visit Jakarta for awhile, aside from bad traffic, they hv plenty of hotspot for gourmet lover.
