I think I've eaten about 10 gallons of some cheap no name peppermint stick ice cream from BJ's Warehouse since 12/6.

Blue Moon from House of Flavors in Ludington, MI. Still faintly remember when it was a one store place that went by the name "Park Dairy" they are reviving the Park Dairy name to cash in on the nostalgia craze, but their Blue Moon is still the best!

So sad . . . Ben & Jerry have apparently killed of "One Sweet Whirled" which was my fave. Cherry Garcia and Heath Bar Crunch are acceptable though . . .

Yep, right on the main drag going through town to the beach. Been going there for as long as I can remember. My Grandparents used to live right behind the dairy bar and we would go every time we were in town. Which was about 3 times a week, every week.

Is Butter Crunch the same as Butter Brickle?

When I was a young girl, I'm in my 50s now, there used to be an icecream called Butter Brickle (not the Heath toffee bar type of icecream). Butter Brickle had a deep golden color with bits of caramel toffee mixed in. The toffee looked like it could have been made from taking a Sugar Daddy and crushing it into very small pieces. I haven't seen Butter Brickle icecream since the early 1960s.

How funny, I was talking about butter brickle the other day, I loved that stuff! Remember how it had a little melty part around each piece of toffee?
-sigh- now I want ice cream, and theres none in the house.

Hagen Dazs was making gelato for awhile, I don't know if they still do.

If I can't get gelato, I do enjoy Ben and Jerry's, which still seems okay after their sell-out.

Moose, I like Strawberries and Cream too, but I can't remember who makes it, is that Hagen Dazs?

When I used to have an ice cream maker, my favorite flavors were peach and vanilla.
I remember having it in Germany---lots of Italian gelato vendors there. It was great!!!! Does't quite taste the same here.

Baskin Robbins is my favorite ice cream vendor. Their New York cheesecake ice cream is my favorite.

I used to work across the street from a Ben & Jerry's ice cream shop and would get a cup of their vanilla chocolate chunk ice cream. Boy, was that GOOD!

Once in a great while I'll go to Coldstone Creamery. They're too expensive and their ice cream (to me) doesn't taste all that special.
