We have Umpqua and Tillamook brands over here - they are both good, but I have to say that I haven't tried an ice cream that I didn't like! I will usually buy the store brand, unless one of the others are on sale!

I can't believe how expensive Baskin Robbins has gotten! I took my kids there and we all (3 of us) got double scoop cones - I think it came up to $13! Now, if we go out for ice cream, we will go to Dairy Queen! I like the soft serve anyways!!

Any of you remember getting regular ice cream and stirring it up in your bowl until it was like soft serve? Yum!!

I haven't tried Blue Bell - not sure they sell that in California. Bryer's is flavorless IMO. I love Ben and Jerry's and Hagen Daaz.

Blue Bunny is good too, but no one else here is a Turkey Hill cult member like twista

I only knew about Oklahoma and Alabama. They need to add GA to their map! Thanks for the info.

When we lived in NJ Turkey Hill was our choice. Now it's just Mr. L that eats it and I get HaagenDaz or Ben&Jerry pints.

West's Hayward Dairy, Hayward, WI. Something like 18% butterfat ice cream. You can almost feel your arteries clog it's so rich, smooth, and creamy. Gosh, I haven't been to Hayward for about 5 years...I need some ice cream!

Woodside Farm Creamery in Hockessin, Delaware has the best ice cream in our area, IMO.
