1945 was the year that two brothers-in-law, Burton “Burt” Baskin and Irvine “Irv” Robbins shared their dream of creating an innovative ice creme store that would become the neighborhood family gathering spot. They started out in separate ventures at the advice of Irv’s father. In 1953 however, they dropped their separate identities of Snowbird and Burton’s and became Baskin-Robbins.

BaskinRobbins is the world’s largest chain of ice cream specialty shops. Baskin-Robbins creates and markets innovative, premium ice cream, specialty frozen desserts, and beverages, providing quality and value to consumers at nearly 7,300 retail shops in nearly 50 countries. Headquartered in Canton, Mass., Baskin-Robbins is part of the Dunkin’ Brands Group, Inc. family of companies.

The company is known for its “31 flavors” slogan, but their ice cream flavors have grown incredibly and product availability may vary by location. The first flavor I tried and still love is Pralines ‘n Cream.

So today, March 3, we celebrate the cool sensation of Baskin-Robbins “33 Flavors Day.” You don’t need a scorching hot day in order to enjoy this cool delight!

Happy Food Porn Friday!
