    A "Stranger Things" Scoops Ahoy Pop-Up Just Opened And You Can Try The Ice Cream Even If You Can't Visit It

    *Buys ALL the Stranger Things ice cream.*

    You know what the best part of 4th of July is? THE RETURN OF STRANGER THINGS, obviously.


    Fireworks and hot dogs are OK too, I guess.

    And what better way to celebrate Stranger Things 3 than immersing yourself in Hawkins, Indiana's very own Scoops Ahoy ice cream shop...which you can really do IRL by visiting the pop-up location in Burbank, CA!

    This “pop-up” Scoops Ahoy shop will be open to the public for a limited time from July 2 – July 14 at the 1201 S Victory Blvd. Baskin-Robbins in Burbank, California. (There'll also be a pop-up in Canada at the Woodbine Mall & Fantasy Fair in Toronto that will be open from July 4 – July 16.)

    For a little background, Season 3 will feature a new location called Starcourt Mall — which is where Scoops Ahoy is and where everyone's favorite babysitter Steve will be working in the summer of '85!


    Also, that's new character Robin with Steve here (played by Maya Hawke).

    And this IRL location has spared no expense when it comes to getting every detail right — like, the Scoops Ahoy logo is everywhere and the nautical theme has been turned up to 11.

    Even the ice cream labels are themed!

    Also, check out that MORSE CODE on the U.S.S. Butterscotch label...HMMMMM.

    And employees don sailor-themed uniforms just like Steve and Robin!

    Also, I spotted this ~strange~ cypher disk that's very cryptic, but maybe an Easter egg for the show?!

    What does it mean? Someone tell me!

    And, OF COURSE, there is a very Instagrammable photo-op inside a "boat."

    You shouting: "BUT CRYSTAL, what if I don't live anywhere NEAR glorious Burbank, CA?" Well, don't worry, because you can still enjoy the very best part about this Stranger Things x Baskin-Robbins collab...THE ICE CREAM.

    From now until the end of July, all Baskin-Robbins locations will be serving specially-created, exclusive, Stranger Things ice cream:

    Eleven's Heaven — a waffle cone flavored ice cream with chocolate coated sugar cone pieces and chocolate ribbon.

    Upside Down Praline — chocolate ice cream with praline pecans and a caramel ribbon.

    U.S.S. Butterscotch — butterscotch ice cream with butterscotch pieces and a toffee ribbon.

    You can even get ~fancy~ treats like an Elevenade Freeze; thematic sundaes such as the U.S.S. Butterscotch Sundae, Upside Down Sundae and Demogorgon Sundae; and there's even a Byers’ House Lights Polar Pizza® Ice Cream Treat!


    For the record, the Eleven's Heaven ice cream was my fav. I MAYBE bought a pint of it to go.

    So, arm yourself with a scoop of ice cream, because Season 3 of Stranger Things is bound to blow your mind and melt your heart!
