31 Cents Ice Cream in Canada

On April 28, from 5:00-10:00PM, if there’s a Baskin Robbins around you, GO!

Baskin Robbins will be selling 2.5 oz scoop or 3 oz. soft serve cone of your desired ice cream flavor for only 31 cents. What’s even better is that the proceeds will go towards the Canadian Fallen Firefighters Foundation (CFFF).

I love ice cream, especially anything with chocolate in it! And knowing that the proceeds will be going to charity is an added bonus! Bring your friends and your families and enjoy wonderful scoops of ice cream on April 28. In addition, there will be fire truck tours and on-site fire fighters depending on the location.

Throughout the month of March and April, Baskin Robbins will be featuring a limited edition sundae known as “Forget Me Not” for only $2.99 (not including taxes). Part of the proceeds from the sale of this special sundae will go towards helping families of the fallen firefighters.
