CANTON, Mass., 2016-1-4 — /EPR Retail News/ — Baskin-Robbins is celebrating the New Year with a Flavor of the Month that’s perfect for chocolate lovers nationwide. The January Flavor of the Month, Chocoholic’s Resolution, is a Swiss-style chocolate ice cream with chocolate ganache cake pieces, white caramel-filled cups, and a chocolate ganache flavored ribbon. For ice cream enthusiasts resolving to eat more chocolate in 2016, Chocoholic’s Resolution can be enjoyed in a cup, cone, milkshake or as a Brownie Sundae.

To celebrate “chocoholics” nationwide, Baskin-Robbins partnered with Juliet A. Boghossian, a behavioral food expert and founder of Food-ology®, an original methodology that links food related habits to personality traits and behavioral tendencies, to identify what a chocolate lover’s favorite type of chocolate says about their personality:

  • Milk Chocolate: You’re a devoted traditionalist, friendly, approachable and responsible. You crave balance, peace and consistency.
  • White Chocolate: You’re a playful free spirit and tend to be the life of the party. You’re flirtatious, impulsive, generous, kind and nonjudgmental.
  • Dark Chocolate: You are the determined maverick. You play hard to get and are passionate, generous, selective and mysterious. You are known for speaking your mind, for your no nonsense honesty and ability to process information quickly and for taking calculated risks.

In addition to its Flavor of the Month, Baskin-Robbins is offering guests an innovative lineup of seasonal ice cream flavors that can be enjoyed at select participating Baskin-Robbins shops nationwide throughout January, including:

  • Vanilla Pomegranate Parfait Frozen Yogurt: Delicious vanilla-flavored frozen yogurt and granola clusters swirled with a pomegranate ribbon.
  • Orange Sherbet: Citrus sherbet made with oranges for a delicious and refreshing taste.
  • Rock ‘n Pop Swirl: Green grape-flavored sherbet, purple green-apple-flavored sherbet, and popping candy.
  • Icing on the Cake®: Cake flavored ice cream with cake pieces, frosting bits, and a candy confetti ribbon.

“As we kick off the New Year, Baskin-Robbins is offering a wide variety of ice cream flavors and frozen treats to meet a range of resolutions. Guests can select from more indulgent ice cream flavors, such as our Chocoholic’s Resolution Flavor of the Month, as well as better-for-you options like our Vanilla Pomegranate Parfait Frozen Yogurt,” said Jeff Miller, Dunkin’ Brands’ Executive Chef and Vice President of Product Innovation. “We’re excited to ring in 2016 with our guests and bring back a fan favorite, Chocoholic’s Resolution, and a fun lineup of ice cream flavors that guests can enjoy all month long.”

Baskin-Robbins will also host its first “Celebrate 31” promotion of 2016 on Sunday, January 31. Throughout the year, on the 31st of each month, guests can enjoy all regular and kids scoops for just $1.31 and two-scoop sundaes for $3.31.*

Additionally, Star Wars lovers nationwide can continue to celebrate the beloved film franchise with Baskin-Robbins’ delicious ice cream cakes. Baskin-Robbins’ Star Wars: Darth Vader Cake is a classic sheet cake with blue icing, red, black and grey trim which features a collectible Darth Vader helmet decoration that makes the iconic movie villain’s infamous breathing sound. The Star Wars: The Force Awakens Cake is a classic sheet cake decorated with orange icing with black, grey and white trim which features a collectible BB8 decoration that turns from left to right locking into its base while its head spins, making for action packed fun after the party.

Whole Foods Market will host 5 percent Community Giving Day to benefit GrowNYC’s Project Farmhouse on Jan.5, 2016

Fundraiser at all nine Whole Foods Market NYC locations on Jan. 5 to benefit GrowNYC’s Project Farmhouse

NEW YORK, 2016-1-4 — /EPR Retail News/ — Whole Foods Market, America’s Healthiest Grocery Store, will host a 5 percent Community Giving Day to benefit environmental organization GrowNYC. On Tuesday, Jan.5, 5 percent of sales from all nine Whole Foods Market New York City locations will be donated to support GrowNYC’s Project Farmhouse—a new education center focused on sustainability, which will open to the general public in summer 2016.

GrowNYC staff and volunteers will be at each Whole Foods Market location from 11a.m. to 3 p.m., educating the public about their work to provide all New Yorkers with a suite of tools and services they can use to improve quality of life, the environment and Project Farmhouse.

Project Farmhouse will be an international center for learning and exploration, opening in 2016. Imagine a central location for environmentally themed film festivals, panel discussions, cooking classes, conferences and more. With the project, GrowNYC will have a permanent, public home where it can serve all New Yorkers. Project Farmhouse will create community for all ages around a range of free and affordable workshops, exhibits, hands-on youth education and special events. Located in Union Square, near the Hyatt Hotel, Project Farmhouse will be a place to explore environmental issues through the lens of food, horticulture, arts, recycling, cooking, and more.

“At Whole Foods Market, we proudly share in GrowNYC’s belief that the entire New York City community will benefit greatly from Project Farmhouse – a place where everyone can come and learn about healthy eating, local food sourcing, renewable energy, composting and beyond,” said Christina Minardi, president of Whole Foods Market’s Northeast Region. “GrowNYC is a vital resource to the city, through the operation of their Greenmarkets, community projects and sustainability advocacy. We’re proud to be a supporter and partner of this fantastic organization.”

GrowNYC is more than halfway to its fundraising goal of $750,000; the amount needed to build out the space and cover the first year of programming. Whole Foods Market’s citywide 5 percent community giving days, which are hosted at all nine New York City locations, typically raise more than $80,000 for their beneficiaries.

“Our staff is out every day working alongside residents – organizing 53 Greenmarkets, including our iconic Union Square Greenmarket, building community and school gardens, helping all New Yorkers recycle more including through compost collections at Greenmarkets and hands-on education programs for all ages,” said GrowNYC Executive Director Marcel Van Ooyen. “Project Farmhouse is our dream. Whole Foods Market is helping us open the doors to provide  more free tools, services, and education that even more residents can take advantage of to improve their lives and others!”

Project Farmhouse is supported by the following generous donors: Victoria Contino, Robert J. Kafin, Liz Neumark, Karen E. Meara, TD Bank, Whole Foods Market, Pratt Industries, JetBlue, New York Community Trust (Himelberg Fund, Colin Gardner Fund), Manhattan Borough President Gale A.
