"Stranger Things" fans will be able to travel back in time this summer and they won’t even have to battle any Demogorgons.
Baskin-Robbins has announced they are recreating the Netflix show’s iconic ice cream shop, Scoops Ahoy, at the brand’s Burbank, CA location, according to Us Weekly.
On the series, Scoops Ahoy is located in the food court of the fictional Starcourt Mall in Hawkins, Indiana. In keeping with the 1985-set of the show, the Los Angeles area pop-up will be decked out in similar retro décor and staff uniforms.
While Steve Harrington (Joe Keery) won’t be on hand to personally scoop your order, fans will be able to pick up some "Stranger Things"-inspired treats.
The July flavor of the month is USS Butterscotch and features a butterscotch-flavored ice cream with butterscotch pieces and a toffee-flavored ribbon, Baskin-Robbins said in a press release. If you’re feeling extra decadent, there’s a chocolate-dipped fancy cone with rainbow sprinkles or the option to upgrade to the sundae which includes three scoops topped with waffle sails.
The Byers’ House Lights Polar Ice Cream Treat, a reference to Joyce Byers’(Winona Ryder) communicating with The Upside Down via her holiday ornaments, features a chocolate-chip cookie crust with Snickers ice cream, fudge and a sprinkling of M&Ms.
Other items include a lemonade and vanilla ice cream Elevenade Freeze, named after the show’s breakout character played by Millie Bobby Brown, and Upside Down and Demogorgon Sundaes. Those don’t sound scary at all!
Fans in the southern California area can visit the Burbank pop-up from July 2nd through the 14th. Customers in the rest of the country can try all the "Stranger Things"-inspired flavors at their local Baskin-Robbins outlets, but they won’t be decked out in the shows ‘80s décor.
The third season of "Stranger Things" starts streaming July 4th on Netflix.
