Secrets of the Baskin Robbins logo (part 2)

I was eating ice cream yesterday and I kept focusing on the Baskin Robbins logo.



I noticed that the pink part secretly is 31. “31 Flavors” being the thing they are famous for. I googled it and of course everyone in the world already knew this.

But I kept looking at the fine print. IP Holder Llc. It’s the parent company of Dunkin Donuts , Baskin Robbins, and a bunch of stuff. If you look at the purple part of the logo it spells IP. I couldn’t find anyone on the internet that had noticed this.

So the logo secretly contains 31, and the 31 is flanked by IP which is the holding company that owns the brand. And the whole thing spells out BR. That’s pretty clever.

I think it's more coincidence than clever.

Yeah, I agree. The 31 was intentional and the IP is just a byproduct of that.

Ip holder llc is a common term, it is used by companies to indicate they only own intellectual property, not the actual business.

Coincidence but still a cool find.

Cool, that's what I was thinking what the "IP" likely stood for. I feel more smarterer now.

IP holder is a common term. IP Holder LLC is the actual name of the company that owns BR and many other food stores.

Thanks to Bud Selig, I hate the Brewers. However they still have one of the greatest sports logos of all time:



Followed by the no-longer around Montreal Expos:

Re: Secrets of the Baskin Robbins logo (part 2)

If you take the 31, and add the first 2-digit prime number to it (11), you get 42!
This is Baskin-Robbins' hidden tribute to Douglas Adams. (/s)
