J.B, Malaysia: Baskin Robbins

27 August 2010


There's always a time for ice-cream, no matter how full you are, no matter what time of the day it is, and no matter how much you try to be on a diet. When I was in J.B recently I made a mental note to pay Baskin Robbins a visit, especially since the last time I had ice-cream from Robbins was a few years ago in Bangkok. I remember it to be quite good.


If I had to make a comparison, I would say that Baskin Robbins is similar to Ben & Jerry's, albeit with less chunky ingredients and more on thick linings (or "ribbons" as Robbins calls it) of deliciously sinful flavours like caramel, chocolate and peanut butter. For those who prefer balanced textures, without the crunches and munches, this could do well for you.

Very Berry Strawberry & Perils of Praline


No ice-cream lover would scrimp on a single scoop, and I for one normally start on two (and then complain later about double-chins haha!). I adored the Very Berry Strawberry, which was sweet, milky strawberry ice-cream with real strawberry bits in it. Refreshing stuff. The Perils of Praline, one of the few chunky ice-creams offered by Baskin Robbins, featured "vanilla frozen "low-fat" yogurt packed with pralined pecans and chocolate cookie pieces, with caramel ribbon throughout". A sinfully sweet concoction surely, but I liked it quite a lot too. Vanilla, chocolate, nuts and caramel, who would say no to that?

Peanut Butter and Chocolate


My little sister had the Peanut Butter and Chocolate ice-cream, which is more of chocolate ice-cream with a sliver of peanut butter throughout. Would be even better with chunky chocolate and/or nutty pieces though!

Price
RM7.50 for a single scoop,
RM14.50 for a double scoop.

Place
City Square Shopping Centre,
Johor Bahru, Malaysia.

Don't know if you remember this, but Baskin Robbins was in SG eons back and that was the last time I had it. Really miss this. Somebody should bring back the franchise, & do a good job of it.
