What's your favorite ice cream?
 
Inspired by the "whats your favorite cereal" thread. Manufacturer and flavor please. No limits on how many you want to list.

I'll eat....almost any straight chocolate ice cream, made by anybody. Even cheap store brands. A little adventurous, I know lol.

Ben & Jerrys Coffee Heath Bar Crunch. Oh my.

Normally I like my ice cream smooth, but there are exceptions. No nuts though. Or sprinkles. Not crazy about candy either, except heath bar.

Love soft ice cream, vanilla and chocolate twist, dipped in liquid chocolate, mmmmyummm.

They are my favorites, in no special order.

I didn't think I would be a fan, but I love green tea ice cream. I don't know the brand because they just serve it to me at Japanese places.

OH my, this one is right up my alley! ...lol I live in Cincinnati and practically across the street from one of the best ice cream shops in the country..,.Graeters! I love their mocha chip, peanut butter chip and mint chip. All of their chips are large decadent pieces of dark chocolate...YUM!

I pretty much like anything with chocolate and like Uncle Larry I love me some chocolate/vanilla twist soft serve as well.

Many many moons ago I worked at a Dairy Queen when blizzards first came out and love me a cookie dough blizzard.

Hard to beat a well-made, old fashioned, chocolate soda, too.

Oh and if you haven't tried Orange Leaf soft serve frozen yogurt, it's quite delish as well. I love the cookies and cream.

I also worked at a Baskin Robbins for a while in high school. Love a lot of their flavors too. I actually got to serve Sean Penn ice cream there :)

And ice cream cake?!?! Who doesn't love a good ice cream cake?

As you can see, you have hit a nerve with me. Ice cream is my absolute all time favorite food. I could live on ice cream alone I think.

Gee, now I'm craving ice cream...go figure! Thanks Lar.

I make my own vanilla bean and chocolate ice cream,as well as lemon and watermelon Italian water ice.

I got the ice cream maker around 10 years ago and found out that you can make better ice cream at home by just tweaking the recipie a little.

Most commercial ice creams have loads of air pumped into them and way too much sugar.

I think my favorite is probably Haagen-Dazs Vanilla. The ingredient list is so basic. Something about the vanilla they use to flavor it, it's almost got a spicy character to it.

I like Pistachio but spit out the nuts. Maybe I could go and just order the flavor green?

Cherry Garcia.

I like cherry anything just about.

Cherry Garcia almost made my list. It was THIS close. Ah fuggetaboutit, Cherry Garcia, it's on the list!

Cherry anything eh Paul? I'm not touching that lol.

Cherries are good. That's all I'm saying.

Strawberry is my favorite. I have also recently fallen in love with frozen Greek yogurt, it just has this wonderful creamy texture. I used to love sherbert when I was a kid but find much too sweet for my liking these days.

Some funky Japanese green tea ice cream I had in SF some years ago.

Vanilla only. will try others if necessary, but vanilla by choice.

i have been told that what i like is soft serve and that it is the same as ice milk.

i do know that i have not been able to determine what is so great about Hagen-Daaz and Breyers. i think Pet is a brand that i like. i don't eat it often.

Cherry Garcia hands down. I'm almost a bit racist about it.

Smoke 07-31-2013 07:16 PM

Re: What's your favorite ice cream?
 
Not much of a sweet eater - probably haven't had ice cream in a couple of years - don't really remember for sure. (heretic!)

But, if you hold my feet to the fire, I'd choose french vanilla.

BramVanroy 07-31-2013 09:36 PM

Cookies! (Vanilla with pieces of chocolate chip cookies in it)

Re: What's your favorite ice cream?
 
I'm fortunate in that the Blue Bell is plentiful in Texas. My parents actually live in the town where the creamery is. They have so many different flavors it's ridiculous. But I think my all time favorite is, and always will be, peaches 'n cream.

Ben & Jerry's - Cake Batter

Baskin Robbins - double scoop of Daiquiri Ice and Rainbow Sherbet. That was my go to as a kid, but they don't make the Daiquiri Ice anymore. *sigh*

Black Cherry w/Black Cherry topping. ugh... I'm going to get some now.

Re: What's your favorite ice cream?
 
Ben & Jerry's has long churned out (ha!) several of my favorites, to include Phish Food and Cherry Garcia. More recently, a local frozen yogurt franchise called Blue Spoon has got me hooked on their wares, and they're much more forgiving for my waistline. I tend to mix chocolate fudge and peanut butter flavors there. Mmmm.

Just give me my rum and raisin and nobody gets hurt.

Re: What's your favorite ice cream?
 
A local store, Safeway, has their own line of ice cream, and I love their Moose Tracks kind, which is a chocolate ice cream with fudge swirled into it.

My favorite WAS called "Death By Chocolate", but that one was discontinued years ago. Perhaps Travis (aka "LarryAce") might choke on it? Jerkstore.

If you guys stop by South East Asia, don't miss the fruit flavours. We may not have the same super-rich tasting milk here, but the variety and flavours of tropical fruits are to die for. For example, don't miss durian ice cream when in Indonesia and Malaysia. You can choose between brand-names in supermarkets or funky home made ones from street vendors.

Hmmm...I haven't had a cherry in decades so probably shows my age. I love DQ hot fudge oreo brownie earthquake with lots of hot fudge. And I think my favorite is the blueberry soft serve ice cream at Kings Island.

And first time I went to Orange Leaf I took my six year old daughter. I said wow honey...look at all the stuff we can add. I knew I was in trouble when cashier said put your ice cream on that. What I said and she responds "the scale". Uh oh I thought!!! $25 later we walked to a table to enjoy our cold feast ;-)

What, did wittle Philly learn a new word? Jerkstore. How cute. Your Mommy must be so proud! It's so cute the way you try puff yourself all up, you're so adorable! What are we 35 now? Please, do us all a favor and don't reproduce, OK? Spare the world the tragedy of another generation of little assorted wumpii.

I will exact my revenge Phil. I don't know what it was about me at the audition. I guess you saw everything that was good and decent and you just couldn't let it be. You had to throw your fistful of mud on the Mona Lisa. I even wished you luck. How stupid was I? I hope you lay awake at night wondering about your future run of bad luck that will be coming your way.

What a mean man you are. Mean mean mean! I fart in your general direction sir.

That was a fart?!?!? I thought I stumbled upon a rhinocerous massacre...

Massacre by rhinoceros...Hmmm...No, you're too crafty for that. You could escape. Plus it would be kind of hard to arrange....Hey, maybe you could help me! What's your greatest fear?

I just found a new one at a local food store. It is called " it's Your Birthday Cake. Tastes exactly like the typical birthday cake.

Like Mary said earlier, we are spoiled in the Cincinnati area. Not only do we have Graeter's and their wonderful chip varieties but we also have Aglamesis Brothers. The latter has nuanced flavors which may not be as bold as Graeter's but sublime in a different way.

The one by me still makes Daiquiri Ice... just got it a couple weeks ago. Try the other locations! They didn't have Lemon Custard, though, which is very unfortunate.

I think my favorite ice cream flavor ever was a promotional Baskin Robbins X-Men flavor from almost 10 years ago. They had it for a few weeks. In that short period, I got a scoop of it, loved it, and then an ice cream cake with it for my birthday. Thanks, grandma! I sure wish I could eat it just one more time. Otherwise, lime sherbet (I know it's not technically ice cream) over anything else.

MaryO 09-03-2013 12:32 AM

Re: What's your favorite ice cream?
 
When I worked at Baskin Robbins the most popular flavor by far was pralines and cream. Or as one customer who couldn't remember the name called it...qualudes and cream. Hmmm...maybe that's why it was so popular.

I used to love Baskin Robbins pralines and cream.
