Childhood Flashback

Do any of you remember Baskin Robbins' Daiquiri Ice ice cream? I have vivid memories of Mom taking me to BR for a special cone - I'd usually get something like Bubble Gum, but she would always get Daiquiri Ice.
The flavor is a sherbet-like tart lime with a hint of rum (just flavoring, not the real deal - although hmmm...that's an idea!) - completely cool and refreshing!
Although the flavor was originally created in 1962, it was discontinued some years ago, and substituted with something they made with a margarita reference - soooo NOT the same!
How-evah, I just read that they've brought Daiquiri Ice back! Woo-hoo!
So, in honor of this blessed event, I bring you Cone-to-Room!

It has always been my favorite-I stopped going when they discontinued it. Great news!!!!! I just read that it was the favorite of Bing Crosby and is the favorite of Justin Timberlake. I'm going for a Daiquiri Ice freeze today!

Never tried it; but then again, as a kid I always went with one of the chocolate flavors. Now though, that Daiquiri Ice is sounding WONDERFUL.

You just brought back so many memories!! I also used to get the Bubblegum ice cream. It wasn't even that good I just thought it was cool it had real gum in it!! Later I got the daiquiri ice..it was awesome!!

Hey-I absolutely love Daiquiri Ice! I always got it in a cone as a kid and when I have noticed the past few times I've been to Baskin Robbins they didn't have it anymore. Thanks for the good news1
