It's time for August's Project 41, my plan to try each flavor-of-the-month at Baskin-Robbins with a different friend as a year-long celebration of my 41st birthday. August marks six months, the halfway mark. Every month has been awesome and I can't believe I've never done this before. I'm seriously considering eating the flavor-of-the-month with a different friend each month for the rest of my life.
This month, I asked my friend Susan to join me. I met Susan in 2007 when she joined MOMS Club. Since her daughters are older than Trevor, I didn't really get to know her until the following June when I started a term as President and she served as Secretary. We discovered that we have a lot in common, including a love of crafts, reading, and entering projects in the county fair. Even though we "talk" on Facebook, follow each other's blogs, and look for each other's fair entries, we hadn't seen each other in person in about 3 years.
We met at the Baskin-Robbins closest to her house, in the next town over from where I live. It occurred to me that in six months I've now visited four different Baskin-Robbins shops! I wonder how many more I'll visit in the next six months...
On to the ice cream. August's flavor-of-the-month is Oreo Nutty Salted Caramel. According to the description, "Oreo cookie pieces combine with a salty caramel ribbon and honey glazed peanuts all within our delicious vanilla flavored ice cream."
It was SO good. The salty with the sweet with the crunchy with the chocolately... it was heavenly. We both loved it. I'd order this one again and again. Good job, Baskin-Robbins! You've totally redeemed yourself after Triple Vanilla.
Susan and I ended up talking long after the ice cream was gone. It was wonderful to catch up with her. Thanks for joining me, Susan!
