If you ever wanted to sample the USS Butterscotch at the Starcourt Mall, you’re in luck.
Season 3 of Netflix’s hit show “Stranger Things” keeps us firmly planted in Hawkins, however, that doesn’t mean you can’t experience some of the new additions of the show’s Starcourt Mall firsthand.
Netflix has taken its marketing to a whole new level, opening a few Scoops Ahoy pop-up shops in North America.
The Upside-down streaming service has partnered with Baskin-Robbins to open a few Scoops Ahoy locations, complete with 80’s decor and ambiance reminiscent of the show and the decade in which it takes place
But beige, blue and anchor ambiance aren’t the only things being offered. In addition to the immersive experience, visitors to the pop-ups will also be able to taste their very own U.S.S. Butterscotch Sundae (which is made up of butterscotch ice cream, chocolate, strawberry and topped off with three waffle cone sails, whipped cream, and sprinkles.)
Not in the mood for a traditional three scoops sundae? Well, then you have the Elevenade Freeze, which is vanilla ice cream and Minute-Maid Lemonade.
Really not in the mood for traditional ice-cream? The pop-up also offers Byer’s House Lights, which is a chocolate chip cookie crust with Snickers Bars Ice Cream, with fudge and M&Ms mimicking Joyce Beyer’s first season go-to for communicating with Will in the up-side-down.
Just don’t flicker the lights when you’re eating it.
In addition to the actual frozen treat offerings, Baskin-Robbins will be selling merchandise inspired by the show. Funko POP! figures of Steve, Scoops Ahoy T-shirts, and sticker/magnet sheets complete with retro Baskin-Robbin logos along with Scoops Ahoy moniker.
If you can’t make it to one of the brick-and-mortars, then you can try and catch a Scoops Ahoy ice-cream truck traveling across the West Coast (with a little Mind Flayer addition). According to the official Baskin-Robbins website, you can be “on the lookout for a traveling Scoops truck near you!”
Erica better cash in on her “free ice-cream for life”, though. The pop-up shops are for a limited time only.
