Yum - It's Good For Yer Bum!

Baskin-Robbins®, America's favorite neighborhood ice cream shop, is ringing in the New Year with the introduction of BRight Choices treats. BRight Choices are better-for-you light ice cream options including fat free, dairy free, no sugar added and light ice cream offerings. BRight Choices flavors have all the great taste -- but with less guilt. You can find BRight Choices flavors by looking for the pink star decal.

On January 15, 2009 Baskin-Robbins will celebrate the new dreamy non-dairy treat with BRight Choices Day. On that day participating Baskin-Robbins shops will offer a free BRight Choices scoop to any customer with proof of a gym membership.
