My favorite flavors are vanilla (REAL vanilla), mint chocolate chip, and sea salt caramel. My favorite brands are Talenti, Graeter's, Haagen Dazs, and Strauss Family Creamery.

I think Carvel is only on the east coast but they have the best ice cream I've ever had. Their mint chocolate chip is amazing and when my mother was alive she loved their strawberry ice cream. I never found any other mint chocolate chip that comes even close to tasting so good also they use little chips that look like tiny hershey's kisses.

Vanilla is my favorite. Next would probably be Orange sherbet

I like most high quality ice cream, since I don't eat it very often. When I do, I want it to be great. I don't much care about the flavor, but I'll pick coffee.

Not big on ice-cream.

If I was to say I liked an "ice-cream".....it would be a half-truth. You see, most of the "ice-cream" that I like is not just ice-cream. In fact, just plain ice-cream pretty much sucks to me.......on the same level that milkshakes do.......runny, no real mouth-feel and overall dissatisfying. An "ice-cream" that I like is only partially
ice-cream.....with lots of candies, chocolate-pieces, nuts, sprinkles, cookie-pieces, very thick toppings thrown-in to thicken and make it taste like something other than ice-cream.

I would rather eatvery thick and high quality frosting...as opposed to something that is too cold, runny and overall dissatisfying.

Rainbow ice cream is a favorite. You add vanilla and sherbet to the mix.

Default What Is Your Favorite Brand and Flavor of Ice Cream?

I just discovered Eddy's Rocky Road and it's delicious. It has roasted almonds (I think the roasting brings out the flavor of the almonds better), great tasting chocolate and soft little marshmallows.

I always loved Ben & Jerry's Phish Food mostly because of the marshmallow, chocolate ice cream, and caramel. The fish shaped pieces of hard dark chocolate are fine but I'd be okay without them (not the biggest fan of dark chocolate). I love scooping out as much creamy marshmallow as I can. Love that stuff.

Another favorite is Dairy Queen's Pecan Turtle Cluster blizzard. It has lots of nuts, caramel and what tastes like the chocolate that they dip ice cream cones into to make the hard chocolate shell.

Ben & Jerry's Half Baked. I rarely eat ice cream but when I do I want it to be worth the calories.

I like it to be REAL also. None of that cheap stuff that actually says, "Frozen dairy dessert" because it can't be labeled as ice cream.
