Project 41: February

Time for February's Project 41!  I was absolutely thrilled to see that February's flavor-of-the-month was a variation on one of my all-time favorite Baskin-Robbins flavors.  Love Potion #31 Dark is "... chocolate ice cream mixed with white chocolate flavored bits and raspberry filled hearts, coupled with a red raspberry flavored ribbon and ice cream."  Yum!


Here's how it looked:


My companion this month was my friend Amber.  I met Amber almost exactly 7 years ago when she and her infant daughter joined the MOMS Club Trevor and I were in.  For several years, I saw Amber frequently at playgroups, Family Saturday outings, and MOMS Night Out activities.  As the kids entered school, we saw each other less and less.  For the past few years, I've only seen her once in a blue moon when running into each other at the grocery store or other places around town.  I've missed hanging out with her.  In December, she was actually the one who saved the day with the "I" dollar bill, so we chatted a bit then.  She's now on maternity leave with a month-old daughter, so it was the perfect time for us to meet for ice cream and really catch up.


So how was the ice cream?  Fantastic!  I love raspberry with chocolate and the raspberry-filled hearts were delicious.  I'm not sure whether I prefer this dark version of Love Potion #31 or the original.  Both are really good.

Another fabulous Project 41!

  2. That sounds like a yummy flavor. This was such a fun year-long project you did! Have you contacted Baskin-Robbins about it? Do you link your blog posts on the BR FB page?

    1. No, I didn't think to do either one! I think I'll link my wrap-up post on the FB page when I officially end the project.
