BASKIN ROBBINS

Custom-make your own ice cream sandwiches. Yes, you heard me right! Now in Las Vegas area locations of our favorite home of “31 Flavors,” you can choose from warm cookie ice cream sandwiches or your own ice cream doughnut sandwich. First you choose your cookie flavor, along with your favorite Baskin Robbins ice cream flavor, and they will hook you up Coolhaus-style, with your own creation to devour. For the doughnuts: they split the doughnut in half, put your favorite flavor in the center, add a healthy drizzle of hot fudge, and put the other half of the doughnut on top.  

When I was given the opportunity to try these new yet gluttonous creations, the girl at the counter was sweet as could be, finding out what my favorite flavor was (Pralines ‘n Cream, in case anyone was wondering), and my cookie selection (Chocolate Chip). She then walked to the back for a few moments and returned with both a doughnut ice cream sandwich and the cookie sandwich, at the same time.  

It was a good thing that it was a pretty quiet day at this particular location, because thankfully, there weren’t too many people there to see me two-fisting a couple of ice cream sandwiches. An innocent passerby only had two things to assume about seeing me in that position: either I was having a really good day, or I’d hit rock bottom and was drowning my sorrows in ice cream. At that point I only had one other option—and that was to dig in. The cookie was good, gooey, and tasty. Surprisingly though, my favorite sandwich was the doughnut one. These new creations are good, messy, and fun. If you decide to get one, I’d suggest one at a time—or bring a friend in on the fun and share the experience.
