Haagen Daz. But it's a difference in style. It's higher in fat than a typical ice cream--and probably twice as expensive. I really haven't gotten it in a while.

Blue Bunny is the best. Especially their nutty buddy cones.

When we go out for ice cream, we always go to Cold Stone.

Interesting! I think it is often too sweet, too. I don't like all that sugar!

I remember years ago when the formula changed to the much less satisfactory version of today.

Bryers was my favourite, until they started all the 'double churning' and now I don't like it. Seems so processed or something. Really disappointed, because it seemed the most natural on the market.

Bought some vanilla Haagen Daz the other day because it was on sale and had baked a raspberry crisp .. and man, was it good! I'd forgotten what a great flavour the vanilla has. It's always been good, but probably about the richest?

Ben and Gerry's Cherry Garcia is still pretty much up there on my list as numero uno, but it has to be on sale first.

Your own for sure!

Unfortunately mine gets used as a wine cooler more often than an ice cream maker. Maybe it's because you see what actually goes into it, lol.

I kept sticking more fruit in, .. you know how stingy they are with the fruit sometimes? well, I put so many blackberries in once, that it took a couple of days just to de-thaw! .. good thing our guests didn't hang around too long waiting for it too soften.

I bought a pint of Ben & Jerry's Cherry Garcia at the store yesterday to try since I've never tried it before.

Turkey Hill and Giffords are both excellent. Local ice cream shops (Rochester/Finger Lakes area) it would have to be Abbots and Purity.
