Tonight is 31 cent scoop night at Baskin Robbins.

I worked at BR for like a bajillion years, so I’m kinda an expert. And there are 3 important things you should know:

1. the free scoops are kid’s scoops. That means they’re miniature. Mini = no calorie*

2. on 31 cent scoop night Baskin Robbins gives money to the fallen firefighter foundation, and a lot of local stores collect additional donations to give to local fire departments and whatnot. If it’s for a good cause it has no calories**

3. Baby Brother is working it. Go to the Surreal America BR and bug him


*They’re a bit more than half the size of a normal scoop. And depending on flavor you’re looking at a range of 80 calories for daquiri ice up to 200 calories for things like peanut butter & chocolate. Most are 170ish or so.

**This is a fact. It’s why you can eat a whole box of Girl Scout Cookies in one sitting.

  1. But you can get up to 3 scoops for 31 cents each so that’s three times as many zero calories, and, as we all know, 3 x 0 = 0.

  2. I ignored that first asterisk, and agreed with the second. Small things do, indeed, have no calories. Eat a whole pie? Lots of calories. Eat a whole pie sliced into tiny pieces? Calorie-free!

  3. I don’t think I have ever had Baskin Robins ice-cream!
