Ice Cream Daze

Ice Cream DazeSure, it’s rainy and windy out there, but spring is in the air. Note those daffodils poking their heads up and the restaurants that are already setting chairs out on patios. It’s undeniable. To ring in the new season, how about marking your calendars for some sweet treats?

Thursday (April 7) is the anticipated opening of Pinkberry in Harvard Square (1380 Massachusetts Avenue). Stop by from 7:30-9:30 p.m. for free swirls. And be sure to try the new for spring, limited-edition lychee flavor. April 12th marks the return of Ben & Jerry’s free cone day (it’s a holiday in my book). Line up early for free scoops of ice cream, frozen yogurt and sorbet.

On April 27, Baskin-Robbins will be selling scoops of ice cream - up to three per person - for 31 cents each from 5-10 p.m. Part of a fundraiser for the National Fallen Fire Fighters Foundation, the shop is introducing a new flavor of the month with the event in mind. Firehouse #31 is “a crunchy atomic fireball ribbon laced throughout with hot cinnamon and packed with red hot candy pieces in vanilla ice cream.” Hot stuff.

Brigham’s ice cream is once again available in a local ice cream shop. Beacon Hill’s boYO (175 Cambridge Street) has added the frozen treat to its lineup of natural frozen yogurt and 50-plus toppings. Brigham’s flavors available now include chocolate, vanilla, chocolate chip, peppermint stick, strawberry and coffee.
