Give the Gift of Ice Cream This Season with Gift Cards for Everyone on Your Holiday Shopping List
CANTON, Mass., Dec. 7, 2011 // PRNewswire // -- 'Tis the season to enjoy ice cream whether it's by reliving a moment in history with Bobsled Brownie, a flavor that was inspired by the 2002 women's bobsled victory in Salt Lake City, or by giving the gift of ice cream and purchasing a Baskin-Robbins gift card for everyone on your holiday list.
Back by popular demand, Bobsled Brownie has come out of the Deep Freeze for a limited time and is available at Baskin-Robbins shops during the month of December. Ice cream fans will be dashing through the snow to enjoy this favorite flavor that features a combination of butter caramel ice cream with chocolate chip blondie brownie pieces and milk chocolate mousse ice cream with a fudge crackle ribbon.
