Budget concerns finally closed the farm several years ago and the Naval Academy gets its dairy products from commercial sources now.
The very best ice cream I ever had was on the streets of Moscow, sold by little old ladies in a paper cone.
It came in vanilla only, but it was beyond rich and creamy and delicious.

I'm not a huge sweets lover but I have yet to meet anyone who doesn't like ice cream. I just avoid it because of all the calories & sugar. I'm just not enough of a sweet food eater to justify it. I'd rather have chips. LOL

Sometimes I do have frozen yogurt as a treat. So much less fat. But still has the sugar...

I voted for frozen yogurt.
Any cooked ice cream recipe is a custard, so it's unlikely you have ever tasted anything but a frozen custard. You have to make real ice cream yourself. I make ice cream once or twice a year, using the pasteurized scramblers instead of whole eggs to avoid the risk of salmonella.

Default Frozen custard

What's the difference between ice cream, frozen custard, gelato and frozen yogurt?

HowStuffWorks "What's the difference between ice cream, frozen custard, gelato and frozen yogurt?"

Excerpt:

Frozen custard -- A touch of egg yolk is what distinguishes frozen custard from commercial ice cream. Legally, custard only has to contain 1.4 percent egg yolk by weight, but some brands have more. The lecithin in the yolk is a natural emulsifier, imparting a richer, creamier texture.

Haagen-Dazs is expanding on their line of gelato with four new flavors: Caramelized Banana Chip, Tiramisu, Pistachio, and Pomegranate Swirl.

So far, I've only tried the stracciatella but really want to try the limoncello. I'm curious to see what the stores here will end up carrying.


Gelato is my first choice as well. I love a good pistachio gelato but developed an allergy to pistachios (Boo!) so now I usually get stracciatella if it's available. 2nd behind gelato is ice cream, specifically my good friends Ben and Jerry. My current fave is the Karamel Sutra Core, and when I go to the scoop shop, I get the 7-layer bar. Fortunately, it's not nearby or sold in stores, or I'd likely weigh about 500 lbs.

Speaking of ice cream, it's free cone day at Ben and Jerry's.

Probably not much of a lineup down the street. There's still 4 feet of snow in places.

I love ice cream! Eating lots of peppermint while it is available.
Key Lime Pie fron Publix is excellent.

This past week I have managed to get a mini peppermint/choc chip Blizzard at DQ. Melted so quickly too. Can't figure that one out. They've never melted that quickly even on a hot July day in same facility
Have been looking for the Edy's Limited Peppermint (even as reported that it is lacking the peppermint that it used to have) but no luck. It used to sell from my local Target. I even attempted a 50 mile radious search based on zip and checked those stores but no luck.
