    Reminds me of the time a penguin was driving across Arizona and developed car trouble. The penguin barely got into a small town before his car died. The mechanic at the only garage said he'd take a look at the penguin's car right away, so the penguin took a break in a local ice cream parlor. It was Arizona and brutally hot, after all. The penguin ordered up a extra huge dish of French Vanilla ice cream. It looked so cool and good, the penguin literally dove into the dish. He ate/bathed in the cool vanilla ice cream. Finishing up, the penguin went back to the garage just in time to find the mechanic getting out from under the car. "I see you blew a seal," the mechanic said.

    "No, no," replied the penguin. "It's ice cream, just ice cream."

    Sort of. They're both owned by the same parent company, Dunkin Brands.

    Egg Nog shakes are good, I have never had them at Baskin Robins but I have had them at Marble Slab and Steak N Shake.

    Is French Vanilla really being abandoned or is this just a publicity stunt by B-R to cause is discussion and promotion? The only difference between French vanilla and plain vanillas that French Vanilla actually tastes something like vanilla instead of mere sugar and cream. I can see B+R replacing plain vanilla with French and never bothering with a name change. American palates have advanced sufficiently in last thirty years that I doubt many would be discomforted by vanilla ice cream that tastes like vanilla.

    I admire you coming to the defense against biases based purely on recent history. (The USA has essentially been fighting for stalemates since WW II.) France has a long proud history, which doesn't fit easily with jokes about the US's need to save the rest of the world. I do reject one suggestion however. I suspect if Martel lost lead to all of Northern Europe confirming to Islam I think we would probably just have a lot of proud, happy Muslims in this country rather than Christian. It should be pointed out that Martel's victor occurred in 732. I doubt many today would be any happier practicing the Christianity of that period and I suspect Muslim Northern Europe would have faced with the same kind of Protestant Reformation that the Catholic Church did centuries later.

    Buddy of mine used to own several B-Rs. Told me there was an "A", "B" and "C" of each flavor, in decending order of richness. He would order the "B" in the summer and the "A" in the winter. The "C" was for making the ice cream cakes. Said some other franchisee got inspected by HQ and was using the "C" in the scoop business and got in trouble.
