About Baskin-Robbins


Baskin-Robbins is the world's largest chain of ice cream specialty shops and is based in Canton, Massachusetts.It was founded in 1945 by Burt Baskin and Irv Robbins in Glendale, California.

The company is known for its "31 flavors" slogan, with the idea that a customer could have a different flavor every day of any month. The slogan came from the Carson-Roberts advertising agency (which later merged into Ogilvy & Mather) in 1953. Baskin and Robbins believed that people should be able to sample flavors until they found one they wanted to buy, hence their famous small pink spoons. The company has introduced more than 1,000 flavors since 1945.

Products Explained

Ice Cream Products

Ice Cream: Full dairy (milk and cream) and sugar; with added flavors, fruits, candies, nuts, and flavored ribbons of many variations and combinations
Sherbets: Only 2% dairy with mainly fruit flavors. Customers who may be slightly sensitive to dairy but not completely lactose intolerant can safely eat sherbet. May also contain egg whites and/or gelatin.
Sorbets & Ices: Dairy-free; made with frozen water and fruit flavors. This product may feel heavier than ice cream, but that is because water is heavier than milk but does not actually contain more product.
