The Baskin-Robbins brand that is widely recognizable in present day actually started from merging of two separate brands by brothers-in-law Burt Baskin and Irv Robbins in 1945. At the time it was formed, the company offered 31 flavors, which was an extreme rarity at the time. Using this to help brand their new company, Baskin-Robbins still utilizes that number in much of their marketing despite the fact that the number of flavors has greatly exceeded the founding 31. Additionally, Baskin-Robbins was the first to introduce ice cream cake to the public and is still iconic to this day.
