But then I started wondering... what if it's actually really good? I thought I'd hate Jamoca Heath, but I actually loved it. Same with Movie Theater Popcorn. I spent far too much time thinking about that crazy Bananas Foster before finally breaking down and asking Steve to join me for an ice cream date. We read the description: "a Bananas Foster flavored ice cream complete with brown sugar rum flavored ribbon and praline pecans."
Rather than have another Gingerbread Junction experience, I decided to just ask for a tasting spoon rather than committing to a whole scoop. That was a good decision. Neither of us liked it (I hated it; Steve just didn't like it). We each chose flavors we hadn't had before (mine was Bobsled Brownie and Steve's was something about peanut butter) and they were both delicious.
A tote bag, travel mug, ice cream scoop, t-shirt, pencil, pin, gift card, and what appeared to be a tasting spoon but is actually a flash drive. Awesome!
When April rolled around, I once again was tempted to go try the Flavor-of-the-Month. Trevor and I went ice skating together last Wednesday (his first time ever, my first time in 20 years), so afterward I suggested we continue the ice theme by stopping for ice cream. Obviously, he thought that was a great idea.
April's Flavor-of-the-Month is The Amazing Spider-Man 2, a "red and blue vanilla flavored ice cream with a dark chocolate flavored web and popping candies that combine to make it a superhero of a flavor!"
This is how it looked:
Trevor opted to get a seasonal flavor that I hadn't heard of before: Easter Egg Hunt: "Get a hop on finding all the hidden candy eggs in our field of green white chocolate flavored ice cream with a sweet creme swirl!"
Both ice creams were tasty and we had a lot of fun together, as always.
So, while Project 41 may officially be over, the jury is still out on whether or not I'll continue making monthly visits to Baskin-Robbins to try the Flavor-of-the-Month...

That is awesome that they sent you such a neat package! LOVE companies that really care about their customers!! :) How fun! I think it's a great tradition, and may just be a fun "date" for you and your guys, or even friends, since you've been able to catch up with so many through the last year! :)ReplyDelete
Sounds like a very fun project! And, a great surprise package from BR!ReplyDelete
Ooooh...never pass on ice-cream! Glad you had flavours you liked.:)ReplyDelete
Awesome!! I really hope you continue to do this -- I think it's a great way to carve out time every month to spend time with family and friends WITH the added bonus of tasty ice cream!! :)ReplyDelete
