Looks like Baskin-Robbins Malaysia has gotten rid of its rum ‘n raisin flavoured ice-cream. Some friends of mine were pretty pissed off about this. Picture of notice here.
It’s supposedly to ensure that their ice-cream is halal.
Weak excuse if u ask me. All that needs to be done is to use a different scoop for the rum flavour. Anyway, even if u eat a whole tub, its not gonna get u drunk. There’s no rum in there anyway! Just some artificial flavour.
If it’s a very popular flavour that people say it is, then i guess consumers would go elsewhere, and BR’s business would be affected.
As for me, i’d rather get some chocolate ice-cream / milkshake and fire a shot of Baileys and Jamaican rum into it!
