Baskin Robbins

Baskin Robbins flavours can never go wrong - they are tasty and unique! My favourite flavours are Cotton Candy and cookies and cream. Cotton Candy is a flavour that’s unique to Baskin Robbins and is also their most popular flavour - I would buy 3 pints at one go for my family.

If you are dining at Baskin Robbins, remember to try their waffles! They are extremely crispy and go very well with the ice cream - order it as a cone or cup base! As for price, it is reasonable, comparable to other ice cream chains. They give you quite a big scoop so it’s definitely value for money. Moreover, like other ice cream stores, you get to sample the flavours before deciding which to get. I have yet to try their ice cream cakes, but i hope i get the chance to try it soon!!

It has a couple of outlets in Singapore and would recommend it to people with a sweet tooth!

Sinful indulgence

When I was young, I remember dragging my parents over to Baskin Robbins to eat their ice cream whenever we went over to Malaysia. So I was really glad when Baskin Robbins decided to set up store in Singapore. Even though there are only a few outlets compared to other brands, I still love to visit Baskin Robbins whenever I need a sweet fix.

I like Baskin Robbins for their bright colours, cheery staff and unique ice-cream flavours. The colour theme of blue and pink is really bright and cheery, and lifts people's moods up. I usually visit the NEX branch, and I find the staff there to be really cheerful and helpful, recommending flavours to us and giving us lots of samples.

Baskin Robbins has unique flavours such as Cotton Candy and Gold Medal Ribbon. They also have promotions from time to time, and come up with new flavours for customers to try. I love their classic flavours too, such as chocolate brownie and strawberry cheesecake. The servings are quite generous, so I'll say it's pretty worth paying for.

Love the flavours

I've always felt that in Baskin Robbins, one can never go wrong with any of the flavours. They're all good and I feel that they're not too sweet as compared to Cold Stone Creamery's, which is diabetes-inducing.

I was so excited when they finally decided to open up a branch in Singapore. I always had to go to Malaysia for my ice cream treat. However, the price here tends to be on the expensive side. It's much cheaper across the Causeway. But do take advantage of the 'pink' promotion. I've heard of someone who just flashed a pink highlighter and got the promotion.

Cute and Unique

Baskin Robbins only has a few branches in Singapore, but I wish they would open many more! I love Baskin Robbins for their unique flavours and variety of ice cream choices, meaning that they do not simply have the typical creamy ice cream, but also sorbet and yoghurt ice cream as well. This gives much more variety and choice for people looking for a different taste and texture in ice cream.

As far as price is concerned, it is reasonable, comparable to other ice cream chains. They do give you quite a big scoop so it’s definitely value for money. As always, you can also try the flavours before deciding which to get. One you have decided, you will discover that the spoon they provide is also especially cute, tipped with a little heart.

One of my favourites is a chocolate raspberry one, with mini chocolate hearts in it. I can’t remember the name but it was absolutely irresistible for girls because of the mini chocolate hearts! The Belgium chocolate was also rich and delicious and I was spoilt for choice.

The yoghurt and sorbert flavours look interesting and also come in a variety of fruit flavours and they are something I would like to try in the future.

Think pink!

How does familiar favourite on the ice cream scene, Baskin Robbins, keep abreast of its competition? Whatever it can do, others can do too (with some doing it better, to boot). The answer: run a buy-one-get-one-free promotion.

Every Thursday, customers who show up at the Baskin Robbins counter (I usually go to the Novena one) with something pink in colour get a scoop on the house. You don’t need to be wearing the pink item, just flashing something (e.g. a pink hanky, a pink sock, a pink brolly) will do.

At least for one day in the week, Baskin Robbins has one over its many competitors.

A nice treat every once in a while.

Baskin Robbins sells pretty attractive and uncommon flavours of ice-cream, such as cotton candy and white chocolate, as well as classic flavours like cookies and cream, all of which I really like.

Whenever I see cotton candy ice-cream, I would think that it would taste like the rainbow ice-cream stick that Paddle Pop sells, but no. Not at BR. Their cotton candy ice-cream tastes like the exact thing, and is really enjoyable when you eat it in the form of ice-cream, and same goes for white chocolate. Cookies and cream tastes like any other, but it is still nice nonetheless.

Baskin Robbins can be rather costly for a small cup, but it's nice to treat yourself to their ice-cream every once in a while, and you can always get a bigger cup and share the cost with a couple of friends. That could possibly lower the cost for each of you.

Happy colors but a hefty price!

I was introduced to Baskin Robbins by a friend but I find the price for it a little too high to be a regular customer.

The only flavor that greatly attracts me is their cotton candy flavor because it is so unique and special.You will rarely find cotton-candy flavored ice cream anywhere else in Singapore.The people who works at this branch always puts on a very warm and friendly smile and it makes you feel really happy buying your dessert there.I also tried their ice cream cake but it was only average because the winning Swenson's ice cream cakes taste so much better,they have so much more to learn from their seniors.

The colors definitely appeals to kids so it makes every dessert indulgence experience a memorable one!

finally in Singapore

I remember always dragging my parents to Baskin Robbins in Malaysia when I was young(er). The place seems so bright and happy, it simply promises a perfect childhood ice cream experience. I was ecstatic when I saw the first outlet in Novena.

Thankfully, the Singapore outlet delivered. I always go for the Chocolate Peanut Butter - perhaps the best combination ever invented. The peanut butter in the flavour comes in small chunks and is not the usual Skippy salty, thus it really is quite sweet. Not for those without the sweet tooth. Their cones are not very worth it though, they taste pretty much like those available at those traditional kiosks. My complain is that it costs a little higher than the other places I frequent. $3 gets you a decent big scoop at Salted Caramel, whereas it costs about $5 here at Baskin Robbins. Also, when craving for the combo of chocolate and peanut butter, Cold Stone still wins.

No doubt I'll always come back though. The childhood memories associated and the warm homely feel to it never fails to draw me in time and again.

Cute, but not necessarily worth the price

I think most Korean-pop lovers like me out there would know Baskin Robbins from the countless Korean celebrities who have endorsed this brand. In fact, I have a soft spot for this place, especially the outlet in Novena Square.

The staff at the Novena Square outlet are always friendly and never fail to greet me with a smile whenever I place my order. Their friendly disposition is a reflection and embodiment of the essence of Baskin Robbins; it is a happy place to be at. The place is never really crowded, perhaps due to the slightly more expensive prices, but provides a great ambience for me and my friends to have a chat over ice-cream or ice-cream cakes.

Every time I visit the store, I never fail to order a slice of my beloved ice-cream flavored cake. Regardless of the flavors available on the day itself, I am always willing to try out new cakes and ravel in the bliss of ultimate sweetness. However, the price for a slice of cake does leave my heart feeling a little empty; no amount of ice-cream can make up for $6.50 worth of a piece of cake. I feel that for this price, the cakes should be of exceptional quality, but sometimes the cakes are hard (due to the fact that they are stored in the freezer in a bid to preserve the ice-cream on top) and leave me expecting more in terms of standard.

I would rather go to NYDC and purchase a nice slice of mud pie for myself if not for the service charge there. Nevertheless, Baskin Robins is one of my go-to places for some friendly banter and cake chatter.

An occasional indulgence

Baskin Robbins has a great brand image. It looks happy, fun and colourful, but I do think they might be slightly overrated. Sure, their vibrant colours and open store concept make them hard to miss and draws you to try their ice cream but I think some of their ice creams taste pretty average and are also slightly pricey. A small cup of ice cream costs roughly $5.

They do however, have a lot of flavours and I have not tried all of them so perhaps I haven't found one I like. They do have frozen yogurt which is a healthier choice compared to ice cream (live cultures!) but are a bit thick and creamy and seem more like ice cream than yogurt. I suppose their speciality still lies in ice cream.

They have a current promotion going on every Wednesday which entitles customers to a free junior size cup for every value cup purchased. You've got to show them something pink in order to enjoy the deal though!

For a occasional treat, I still think they're worth an indulgence. You can always ask their friendly staff to let you try as many flavours as you like to find one you love!
