Re: GTKY: Ice Cream!

  • Breyers mint chocolate chip

  • I'm so boring but my favorite is a soft serve vanilla on a cake cone. 

    Second favorite is Turkey Hill cookie dough. The ice cream isn't vanilla like other brands, it's a molasses brown sugar flavor. Soooo good

    I know it sounds crazy but the Great Value generic WalMart brand has the creamiest yummiest ice cream! I go for creamy/milky and less sweet. I'm a plain chocolate lover! I usually mix in some milk and make it a milkshake yummmm.
  • Tillamook cookie dough is so good, but sometimes I get a wild hair and get whatever brand has peppermint.

    I am a soft serve vanilla girl too, or Breyers vanilla and I make a sundae. Fudge, peanuts, whipped cream, YUM!

  • In Maine there is an Ice Cream stand, called Giffords.  You can get it in some grocery stores around New England.  They have the worlds best cookie dough ice cream.  When I was a kid, my favorite was their bubblegum! I cant wait for my shower, becuase its in Maine, and I plan to have it a few times!

  • Breyers Natural Vanilla (the super white kind with vanilla flecks) is the most delicious.

    I'm also a fan of mint chocolate chip, rocky road, strawberry, and butter pecan.

    My pregnancy ice cream craving has been SweetBerries (a restaurant/frozen custard place) custard with raspberries, blackberries, strawberries and cookie dough. Silly delicious and now I need some.
  • Edys makes a flavor called French Silk... definitely my absolute favorite! 

    I also love cookie dough,  cookies and cream, and Neapolitan.  Eh who am I kidding.... I would eat any flavor ice cream!

  • Does "anything and everything" count?

    I'm partial to gelato, actually. Chocolate. Anything with chocolate.

  • I'm lactose intolerant, and my local grocery store does not carry many dairy-free options that aren't plain vanilla or rainbow sherbet. Sometimes I'll get lucky and they will have Lactaid's Berry Chocolate Crumble. YUM!

    Chocolate chip or the Italian version, stracciatella gelato. I really like Blue Bunny Chunk Chocolate Chip and Haagen-Dazs Vanilla Chocolate Chip.

    No specific brand, but I adore black raspberry ice cream. Haagen Dazs vanilla bean is another go-to as well!

  • I don't know if I have a favorite. I prefer ice cream that has chunks of something such as nuts, caramel, berries. I'm not as much a fan of smooth ice cream. 

    Homemade ice cream is my favorite verses a brand. My family makes it often because I grew up on a dairy farm. Lately we just make it at major holidays. It's not as good leftover as it is fresh that day.
  • There's an ice cream stand in western PA called Bruster's. I love their Graham Central Station. It's graham cracker ice cream with chocolate flakes and pieces of graham cracker mixed in. 

    I love everything from Kilwin's too but only get that once every few years when we go to Florida.

  • This isn't technically ice-cream but I for sure had 4 otter pops before I even got to work today. 

    I think they are called different things in different places...

  • @secicc12 @pinkyswife I bought these things called Zipzicles which are essentially the otter pop casing with a ziploc top. I fill them with lemonade, stick them upright in the freezer in like a solo cup and make my own! Soooo good!

  • I love any brand strawberry cheesecake :) and Haagen-Dazs coffee ice cream it is life! When craving vanilla ice cream i like getting kemps DH family got me hooked on that brand for vanilla oh so good! Now I want ice cream 
  • The best/most unique ice cream I've ever had was at a place in the Portland, OR area called Salt & Straw. It was Pear & Blue Cheese and was AMAZING!

    My everyday ice cream has to have lots of stuff in it. I agree with @Kathryn0903 on B&Js Phish Food but hate spending that much. Cow Tracks from Kemps is pretty yummy. But I just love almost all ice cream.

    @Kathryn0903 Phish Food is my favorite!!!

  • @bumpybump Salt & Straws pear and bleu cheese ice cream is amazing! It was so light and creamy! Not what I expected at all.

    We have a local place called Ice Cream Renaissance and I love to pair one scoop of their Bittersweet Chocolate Love Affair with a scoop of their Coconut Luau (summer only)...mmm

    When I visited a friend in Ohio I fell in love with Graeters Black Raspberry Chip...I think of it quite often (occasionally can find it at the QFC here in a pint but it's not the same)

  • @JCPSand2B sounds like we like the same stuff. Graeters does have some great ice cream too.

    There's this one-off shop in my town called Sweet Republic. I love ice cream but they have a basil lime sorbet that is amazing! Sounds weird but it's so so yummy!

  • I'm with @BlackNYellow on Bruster's ice cream. They usually have a daily cheesecake ice cream flavor (New York style, blueberry, chocolate, etc), and that's what I get, but really I'm just pretending it's regular cheesecake. I'm not a huge ice cream fan. I buy Beyers or Blue Bunny at the store for the kids.

  • For store bought ice cream, I love Ben and Jerry's Everything But The.  I can't have it in the house or I'll go through it way too quickly.  B&J's Milk and Cookies is really good too.  As far as local places, I generally go for any ice cream with peanut butter in it.  As much as I love ice cream, I would rather go to the frozen yogurt chain by me and fill my own cup with multiple flavors and toppings.

    @SpotConlon Yay for Tillamook Ice Cream!  I was born and raised in Oregon and now I live in Massachusetts and I can't get it here.  Tillamook Mudslide is my absolute favorite ice cream and every time I go back to Oregon to visit my family, I always buy so much of it and binge on it the whole time.
