In promotion of the The Amazing Spider-Man 2 film debuting May 2, Baskin-Robbins is rolling out with their own Spider-Man-themed treats. The new ice cream flavor packs red and blue-colored vanilla with a dark chocolate “web” and “popping candies.” Aka ice cream + pop rocks. Nice move, BR.
The chain also offers a Spider-Man-themed cake with “ illuminated eyes appear lit up with Electro’s bolts.” Not sure how that works but patrons can customize the dessert with their choice of ice cream and cake flavor combo. There’s also a purple Electro-themed milkshake which we’re hoping is filled with the frustrations of a hapless engineer turned supervillian.
Charisma has an undying love for gritty literature and drinks coffee like water. She also hails from Toronto, Canada and is a die-hard Maple Leafs fan, sigh.
