Review: Baskin-Robbins - Snickers Mini Parfait

Baskin-Robbins' Snickers Mini Parfait is a value-priced option on the Baskin-Robbins menu and is similar to a McDonald's Sundae. It features a bottom layer of caramel praline topping (yes, topping goes on the bottom!) with vanilla soft serve in the middle and a sprinkle of chopped Snickers pieces on top.

A price of $2 makes it one of the most affordable items on the BR menu.

I actually wanted to get a Reese's Mini Parfait, but they ran out of peanut butter syrup. They offered to substitute caramel, but it's just not the same! So instead, I went for the Snickers Mini Parfait.

These may be "mini," but 8 ounces (a cup) of soft serve is plenty. The cup has a narrow base and a super wide lip. As you can see, it melted quite a bit on the ride home, but it was really hot that day.

The soft serve had a nice, thick consistency (but not quite as thick as a Blizzard) and the Snickers tasted like they had been chopped that day. No staleness here. Snickers plus soft serve equals tasty and even tastier as the summer sets in.

I'm a bit split on having the caramel on the bottom though. On one hand, it lets you use as much or as little as suits your taste, but on the other, you have to dig through the whole parfait to get at it. Still, I like Snickers... I like soft serve, and the caramel goes very well between the two.

Let's face it... If you like Snickers... and you like soft serve... Putting the two together is always going to be good. I guess if you don't like caramel, you can ask them to substitute chocolate or peanut butter.
