According to an article at CNN, Baskin-Robbins is retiring 5 of its flavors, including French Vanilla.
I can understand and of the other 4, such as Caramel Praline Cheesecake (which adds 5 pounds to my hips just typing its name), but French Vanilla? It was one of the original flavors back when the company was founded, 65 years ago.
Maybe it's a victim of mandatory retirement.
Or, perhaps, it's being replaced by Freedom Vanilla (sorry ...)
