A sweet deal for ice cream lovers


Daily Deal for Wednesday, April 30

is 31-cent children's scoop night at Baskin Robbins ice cream stores. Participating stores will reduce the price of a single scoop (2.5 ounces) to 31 cents, plus tax, from 5 to 10 pm. At my local Baskin Robbins/Dunkin Donuts franchise, a single kids' scoop usually costs $1.99.

The promotion is to thank consumer for their business and to honor fallen firefighters. Baskin Robbins is donating $100,000 to the national Fallen Firefighters Foundation and some locations may also be collecting for local firefighting groups. The Baskin Robbins web site doesn't explain the tie-in, but the promotion intends to help a good cause -- and it's a sweet deal.
