The 'Stranger Things' Scoops Ahoy Pop-Ups Have Opened in a City Near You
Call the Erica in your group chat.
Stranger Things Season 3 takes us to a brand new hotspot in Hawkins, Indiana called the Starcourt Mall, where the characters frequent for movies, shopping and getting ice cream at Scoops Ahoy. For those who’ve already binged on the entire series, you’ll know that the nautical-themed dessert shop is where Erica (Lucas’ sister) demands for “free ice cream. for. life.” in one of the most comedic scenes this season. And to fans’ delight, you too can now visit the store in real life.
To celebrate the release of Stranger Things Season 3, Netflix has opened a few Scoops Ahoy pop-ups in various cities. In North America, the streaming giant has teamed up with Baskin-Robbins to open two temporary Scoops Ahoy stores, located in Burbank, CA and in Toronto, Canada respectively. For a limited-time only, both locations are decked out with ’80s motifs inspired by the show, with employees donning sailor-like uniforms just like Steve and Robin‘s.
In addition to the two pop-ups, all Baskin-Robbins stores will be serving a menu of Stranger Things-inspired ice cream flavors and desserts throughout July. These include the U.S.S. Butterscotch (made up of butterscotch ice cream, butterscotch pieces and a toffee flavored ribbon), the Elevenade Freeze frozen beverage (vanilla ice cream and Minute-Maid Lemonade) and more. Head to Baskin-Robbins’ website for more information and find the pop-up addresses below.
