ICE CREAM! What's your favorite?
« on: May 29, 2013, 07:17:07 PM »

Itís 89 degrees and humid.  Iím gonna get into the freezer soon!

These are some of my favorites:

Haagen Dazs Vanilla
Haagen Dazs Chocolate
Ben & Jerryís Chunky Monkey
Private Selection (Kroger) Mango Sherbet

Bowl or cone?  I prefer bowl (try to use small ones), but occasionally I buy a box of sugar cones.

I can't remember the last time I had a soft serve cone (Dairy Queen is the best, but McDonald's isn't bad).  Some Chinese buffet restaurants also have good ice cream and even stuff to make sundaes.

Every summer I pine for an ice cream from my youth . A small specialty store in my hometown made a Peach Melba sundae -

Handmade vanilla and peach ice cream , raspberry sauce and home made whipped cream .

The store is long gone , yet I wistfully visit it's former location every time I come home , hoping it will someday magically re-appear .
The key to avoiding trouble is to learn to recognize it from a distance.

Chocolate
Mint Chocolate Chip
Good old vanilla.  I agree Haagen Dazs has the best.

I prefer bowls to cones.  Sometimes, I order a plain sundae at McD as I don't want the cone or sauce.

Vanilla.

Yeah. I'm simple like that. ;D



It doesn't really matter to me if it's the store generic brand, I can top vanilla with whatever I want . . . M&M's, nuts, fruits! Even chopped up sesame sticks or crumbled cookies! (No, I've never tried it with bacon, but it's been tempting. ;))

That's what I like about vanilla ice cream . . . it goes with everything! ;D

Ciao Bella's Tahitian Vanilla gelato or Blood Orange sorbet with fresh blueberries. 

Any good coffee or mocha ice cream. 

Chocolate ice cream, good, bad or indifferent with strawberry syrup. 

Dang!  Now I have to go out and buy some ice cream.

My first choice is Denali's Moose Tracks.  Altho there aren't many Ben & Jerry's flavours that I don't like.  Especially Chubby Hubby and Late Night Snack.  Now you know why Sir Mix-A-Lot wrote that song about me :-).

Rocky Road. One that uses walnuts instead of almonds ideally, but I'm not much for specific brands.

Cherry Garcia... one of my first loves.

I used to get this amazing Black Raspberry ice cream at a local gas station...I can't find it any more, but it was awesome.

And in Germany I came to love green apple. Not yogurt, ice cream.

Thrifty brand 'Hooked on Chocolate'. It was chocolate ice cream with a swirl of Peter Pan peanut butter.
