Ripped off by Baskin Robbins.

Baskin Robbins 31 flavors. Originally a California only chain. Very good ice cream, expensive prices. A two sccop ice cream cone costs $5.00 now. Here is howgot partly ripped off, but
still saved money. The Baskin Robbins on Topanga Canyon Blvd in Chatsworth is advertising $1 dollar scoop Tuesdays after 6PM. Here is what happened:

1. I got charged $1.50 per scoop.
2. I received a smaller scoop per scoop than the previous week.
3. When I asked the teller, who said its $1.00 per kiddy scoop, he told me that I got the "larger" portion which was still smaller than the regular scoop I had paid $2.50
for the week before.
4. I had told them I was here for the $1.00 scoop, but they proceeded to charge me $1.50 anyway.
5. They actually had three scoop sizes with three different scoopers. They gave me the medium one for $1.50 without telling me, and it was still smaller
than the third size which was the bigger size I was used to.

Rip off scam artists. I will try scoop Tuesdays at the other one which is friendlier towards poor college students and offers discounts.

Buying from corporate chains is opening yourself up for disappointment. Try buying from as many local "Mom and Pop" stores as you can.
