    Default What is your favorite ice cream flavor?

    .
    I like in order: 1) Butter Pecan, 2) Peppermint, and 3) Cinnamon. But it appears I am in a minority.

    Workwise — a company that develops sales and customer relations software — used a complete list of all of the popular ice cream flavors from classic ice cream shops and used Google search volume to find out what U.S. states were searching for what ice cream flavors most often. The results are compiled here: https://www.workwisellc.com/blog/mos...cream-flavors/

    Without clicking, which I will go back and do, I am guessing that the all American favorite is POV, plain old vanilla.

    it is tempting to say that my favorite is Neapolitan, it covers most of the bases, but I am here say that my all time favorite ice cream is strawberry. And now is the season, fleeting as it is.


    OK, I went back and read the link, just let us say that the methodology of the survey is possibly suspect, and leave it at that.

    Black walnut, Strawberry cheese cake or chocolate chip cookie dough or just a plain ol Ice cream sandwich. My wife has worked at an Ice cream and dairy store for the last 29 years so I have et more of that than I really ever want again. Beer is more betterer.

    Currently on Haagen Dazs Coffee, lightly drizzled with chocolate syrup, or Haagen Dazs Swiss Almond Vanilla with a drizzle of hazelnut liquor.

    Butterbrickle but it's really hard to find. So Heath Bar crunch will do.

    If homemade the peach.

    Scooped ice cream - orange-pineapple.
    Soft-serve - a tie between chocolate-vanilla swirl or orange.
    Home-made - raspberry.
    Hope for the best, but plan for the worst.

    chocolate chocolate fudge chip, chocolate mint chip vanilla, cherry garcia, coffee, pistachio, black walnut, rocky road, orange sherbet.

    But I discovered the very best is a quasi smoothy made in the blender for me and the grandkids. A cup of frozen blueberries, or peaches or whatever, half cup of half and half or cream and a little agave nectar. Whip it up and it’s soooooo good. We eat it silently till it’s all gone then the three yr old shivers then takes off like a rocket for 30 min.

    Graeter's peach ice cream is the bomb. And only available in June and July. It is like biting into a ripe peach. It can be ordered online.

    Speaking of peaches... my grandfather had an orchard and I grew up eating only tree-ripened peaches. I have not had a decent fresh peach since my grandfather's orchard played out some 35 years ago.

    For ice cream I am pretty mundane in that I like chocolate. If you expand things to include sherbet I am quite fond of mixed orange sherbet and vanilla ice cream.

    Chocolate, first, last, and always - or some minor variation; fudge brownie or summat like.

    Avon Lake, Ohio right on the southern shore of Lake Erie.

    There were a couple of years when a late frost killed the crop. His 3 varieties were (if I remember correctly) Elberta, Red Haven and Hale Haven.

    Grandpa and my uncles would pick the crop and sell from a flatbed wagon in their front driveway. On Sundays during the season they would take baskets full to the Poor Clare cloistered nuns in Rocky River, Ohio.

    I like the decadent flavors. The more going on the better. Chocolate with fudge swirl and chocolate chunks, espresso with heath bar and salted caramel, black cherry with lots of big chunks.

    Of the standards, butter pecan is my favorite.

    A flavour we can get here is Death by Chocolate. Maybe available elsewhere too?

    That’s one I’ve never figured out. I see it is a very popular Haagen Dazs flavor, but I’ve tried it several times and end up throwing it out. Gotta be an acquired taste. I haven’t acquired it yet.

    wouldn't you rather just pour your own rum over some vanilla gelato

    Well, yeah but I'm sure the Rum (in the ice cream) is just rum flavouring, and don't forget the raisins

    (To put real rum in their ice cream they would probably need a licker licence. Yeah, I know grooan)

    Jack Daniels ice cream - only had it in Bar Harbor, Maine. Really, really good!

    After that, I like all of them.

    Vanilla.
    It is not "plain and simple".
    It needs to be clean. Organic. No carrageenan. No aspartame.
    Thus....


    My fave used to be Cherry Garcia, but BnG has carrageenan.

    Depends; what’s in the freezer? BlueBunny chocolate chip, with salted peanuts and kahlua is pretty nice. Chocolate- esp b and j ‘s. Strawberry, esp home made. Coffee is good, too. Haven’t tried homemade peach or raspberry- but I will! AFA good peaches- I expect someone* is spoiled. Colorado peaches are trucked in. Delicious!

    Homemade vanilla, followed closely by homemade raspberry.

    When out, any good vanilla will do. Why adulterate perfection?

    For a quick bite - a Hood Ice Cream Sandwich. But that's called a novelty & is not considered ice cream by the trade.

    Walnut and maple syrup. That's made with actual chunks of walnut, and real maple syrup - not the "tastes like" carp.

    They're all good, so long as everyone knows I got one more scoop than anyone else.

    (Well, someone had to say it.)

    Actually, being lactose intolerant my choices are very limited. It's real ice cream, quite delicious and, surprisingly, only about half the price of the others in the frozen foods section. It's just got a bit of the enzyme lactase added, the enzyme my small intestine no longer produces. You can't tell the difference.

    Anyone looking for peaches come visit.

    Really. I can take you on a taste tour of dozens of varieties of peaches. And nectarines. Plums, apricots. Apriums. Pluots. Within an hour’s drive of here are a dozen growers I know by name.

    Personally, I HATE peaches. Don’t even abide looking at them. Few days of picking and you’ll know why.

    Peace,

    Having kids and grandkids, I find myself having little choice in the matter of selection. I find that I seldom object to any flavor that is offered to me to finish up.

    I do miss the chocolate ice cream we used to make. But it was probably no better than most current ice creams.
