R.I.P. Mister Ice Cream Man

Irvine “Irv” Robbins, co-founder of the Baskin-Robbins empire, left the planet at the ripe age of 90.

He was at the Eisenhower Medical Centre in Rancho Mirage, California at the time of his departure.

Robbins started the Baskin-Robbins ice-cream chain in 1945 with his brother-in-law, the late Burt Baskin.

The next time you are enjoying some of those 30 plus flavors, remember this pioneer of the ice-cream industry.
