Baskin Robbins in Seoul

Hello Everyone!!! Updated my blog finally! I am having quizzes every week but I still wrote! Hahaha.

I stopped by Baskin Robbins (배스킨라빈스) because craving for some ice cream. This is my favorite location to go to!
According to Wikipedia, Baskin Robbins is the world's largest chain of ice cream specialty shops and is based in Canton, Massachusetts. 
It was founded in 1945 by Burt Baskin and Irv Robbins in Glendale, California.

I absolutely love the front of this store! Super cute front door idea!

There is a lovely environment, and the interior is also nice and the establishment is very clean, not stuffy with plenty of space.

The menu could also read easier as it is all over the place. It's in a good location for passers by and does take aways which is very convenient. 

Although there staff isn't very kind and friendly, but they are quite quick.

Different types of ice cream flavors and types of ice cream toppings!

 They offers discounts on Americano drink!

They have a wide variety of ice cream flavors here so there's something for everyone!

Come get the best tasting ice cream! 

Ice cream cakes here are really cute and pretty. Koreans love getting Baskin Robbins cake for Christmas, their Anniversary and Birthdays.

Pick some pretty tissue paper before you eat the ice cream!


What I ordered at Baskin Robbins?
I ordered a Biscuit Choux Chocolate Ice Cream (비스킷 슈 초콜릿). 
I bought it for 2,000 Won. This ice cream cost was little bit expensive!
It's a new way of Baskin Robbins to attract costumers for their new product the "Biscuit Choux", a choux  is a round cream bun. It is a biscuit with a chocolate flavor and really tastes like an ice cream because it melts in the mouth.

Size is very small but I really enjoyed the chocolate ice cream with biscuit.

This icecream was delicious! The biscuit are chewy and thick, making them perfect for ice cream biscuit. I have never had something like this before! 
It was a very smooth and chocolate ice cream with the flavoring of bicuits mixed in, the colors seemed to just be for show and did not have any flavor variation in them. 
It was not overly sweet, smooth and soft. What made it so special was what exactly they mixed into the flavor though.


Just ordered another ice cream!  I also ordered a Chocolate Chip (초콜릿 칩).
The first layer looked innocent enough with only a few chips. 
There also weren't many chocolate chip cookie dough pieces to be found. 
I felt like I was on an ice cream treasure hunt, but there was never any prize to be found. Hahaha.
The vanilla base is slow melting, has a dense consistency and, even though it's subtle, is able to keep my taste buds interested. The vanilla ice cream in this flavor is pretty good. 

Ingredients:
Cream, Nonfat Milk, Sugar, Corn Syrup, Chocolate Chips [Sugar, Chocolate Liquor, Chocolate Liquor processed with alkali, Milkfat, Cocoa Butter, Soy Lecithin (Emulsifier)], Whey Powder, Stabilizer/Emulsifier Blend (Cellulose Gum, Mono and Diglycerides, Guar Gum, Carrageenan, Polysorbate 80), Natural and Artificial Flavor, Annatto Color.


Overall, eating Ice Cream on a cold day is really nice. If you feel cold outside, but you won’t get chills eating ice cream here, especially because it’s pretty warm in the shop!
