There will even be a special flavor to celebrate 31 Cent Scoop Night -- Firehouse #31. According to Victoria Ross on behalf of Baskin-Robbins, the special flavor is vanilla ice cream filled with crunchy atomic fireball ribbon, hot cinnamon, and red hot candy pieces.
In addition to offering budget friendly cones, Baskin-Robbins is making a $100,000 donation to the National Fallen Fire Fighters Foundation to say thanks to the firefighters and help support the families of those that have lost a fallen hero, Ross said.
Last year, Baskin-Robbins dished out more than four million ice cream cups and cones during 31 Cent Scoop Night, Ross said.
Baskin Robbins in Newtown is located on Richboro Road, in the Dunkin' Donuts shop.
