I Scream You Scream | Scoops4Troops

"I scream, You scream........We all scream for ice cream!" I hope I'm not the only one who completed that little ditty we used to shout to the ice cream man (if I am then y'all seriously missed out on some childhood fun, loves!). I don't know about you lovelies, but I'm an ice cream kind of gal. Pretty much any problem in the world can be solved over a pint (or a quart or a gallon) of ice cream....at least all of the ones I've encountered! 

Given that I think so highly of this tasty frozen treat, it's no wonder that, when I found out the world's largest ice cream shop chain....aka Baskin Robbins....was unveiling a new military-inspired flavor for the month of November, I just had to grab Zach and try it out for an impromptu on-post date!


Baskin Robbin's November flavor 'First Class Camouflage' is a combination of their chocolate, salty caramel, and cake flavors and I promise it does actually taste better than it looks! 

So good actually that Zach couldn't resist digging into his before I even had time to take a picture! He might have also been suffering slightly from blogger-husband-embarrassment-syndrome from his wife standing in the middle of the on-base food court with a DSLR taking pictures of him and his ice cream. He might have wanted the photo-taking portion of the date over as soon as possible! #bloggerhusbandproblems 


I love that we have a BaskinRobbins conveniently located on our post which make impromptu ice cream dates like this one possible. That's because Baskin Robbins really is committed to supporting the US military and it's veterans. In fact, they actually have a special veteran incentive program that allows honorably-discharged vets to open their own BaskinRobbins franchise without a startup fee! Which is pretty great in my opinion and something I never knew about the company. 

As we all know, Veteran's Day is next week and I'd love for you all to do something for me. And it's really simple--go eat some ice cream!! In honor of US troops and veterans, BaskinRobbins will donate 10 cents from every scoop of ice cream you buy to the USO

Now as a military spouse, I absolutely love the USO. Before I met Zach and had anything to do with the military, I always thought of them as the people who provide concerts and entertainment for deployed troops overseas, but I've since learned that they do a whole lot more for service members (both active and veteran) and their families. They have airport lounges where service members and their families can rest and relax, provide free phone cards and internet services for soldiers to contact their families while deployed, and they help military families by having fun events like this one that they can attend on bases across the US. 

The main goal of the USO is to lift the morale of American troops and their families around the world and I'm so thankful that companies like BaskinRobbins and people who do really simple things like buying ice cream can help them in that mission.  


So I know where I'll be making a quick trip to this Veteran's Day, how about you? If you visit Baskin Robbins on November 11 (and I really hope you will), let me know by tagging me and using the hashtag Scoops4Troops! 
Remember 10 cents from every scoop of yummy delicious ice cream you eat goes toward the USO!

Be sure to give some Facebook and Twitter love to Baskin Robbins too.
