Homemade ice-cream, straight out of the ice-cream maker has a consistency similar to soft serve.

I love chocolate ice cream, but if it's not available, I will buy Rocky Road, Mocha or Coffee as a substitute.

breyers such like to tease. there gelato ice cream is just so so, but they do manage to entice with their limited edition flavors. I am going crazy looking for the "chocolate mint girl scout cookie" version. Ahhh, the diet went south as I had it on waffle cones! they also have a real orange and cream.

My son is a big fan of the Talenti brand. Their pistachio is very good, so is their Double chocolate.
A must try

How about Häagen-Dazs and Costco/Kirkland?

They are both my favorite vanillas, have you tried their chocolate?

When I was 20 (so awhile ago!) I spent the summer in CA and would ride my bike to a drug store -maybe Rite Aid? I would get a square shaped chocolate ice cream cone. Delious!

Can anyone confirm where I would have gotten a square cone?

It was probably either Thrifty or Sav-On, they were both big chain pharmacies in CA that sold really good ice cream, and both chains got bought out...one or the other by Rite-Aid. Both of them had great ice cream, and did square scoops. Rite-Aid still sells ice cream.

My favorite was pistachio-cashew...I would sell my soul (well, maybe) for that now.

They also sold it at 5 cents a scoop when I was a kid, back in the stone age.

There was a brand that used to be available in the metropolitan are some years back called Sedutto's that had awesome chocolate. It seems the only ice cream I can find with that name now is from a shop in Manhattan but I'm not sure if it's the same company that used to distribute to stores and other parlors in the past. The ice cream was incredible though.
