Spumoni

Spumoni is Italian ice cream molded into layers of different colours and flavours and usually contains candied fruit and nuts.  Typically it is a layer of chocolate ice cream, a fruit and nut layer, and then a  layer of pistachio ice cream. However any flavours can be used.

Soft Serve Ice Cream

What makes soft serve ice cream different than regular ice cream?

Soft serve ice cream has 3-6% milk and is produced at -4 degrees C.  Ice cream has 10-18% milk fat and is stored at -15 degrees C.  Soft serve is creamier, smoother and lighter in taste because air is introduced to the product at the time of freezing.

The History of Basken Robbins

Burton “Burt” Baskin and Irvine “Irv” Robbins were brother in laws who had a vision about family, fun and old fashioned ice cream. In 1945 the pair each had their own individual ice cream shops;  Irv’s Snowbird Ice Cream and Burt’s Burton Ice Cream Shop, and by 1948 they had 6 stores between them.  This is where the concept of Baskin-Robbins eventually grew.  In 1953 their dropped their separate names and became one.

The 31 logo was developed to represent the idea of a different flavour for every day of the month.

Since 1945 over 1000 unique flavours have been created with Pralines ‘n Cream and Chocolate Mint being the top sellers.  Baskin-Robbins is visited each year by over 300 million ice cream lovers.
