As the summer weather fast approaches ice cream sales begin to soar. Is there anything that beats that cool, creamy treat? One scoop, two scoops or those monster sundaes I will sadly admit to finishing by myself at times over the years.
Irvine Robbins, co-founder of Baskin-Robbins Ice Cream stores, died on Monday. A little part of our childhoods died with him.
I remember the Baskin Robbins that was near my house in Roxborough by the Ivy Ridge shopping center. I tried Pralines and Cream there. I have never tried it again, but hey, I tried it. They also sold “momos” which were frozen cherry Kool-Aid treats. Good stuff, my friends.
More about Mr. Robbins below. I salute your 31 flavors, Mr. Robbins and will resist a joke about melting.
