Baskin Robbins Peanut Butter & Chocolate is my absolute fave, but I do not live near one anymore, so it's a special treat when I visit family back home. their Rocky Road is also great.


Graeter's Mint Chocolate Chip is pretty good, in a pinch.

Baskin-Robbins Peanut Butter & Chocolate is probably my all-time favorite too; but there are not any Baskin-Robbins nearby anymore. I also used to love chocolate/fudge ribbon flavors; but they don't seem to make them (chocolate or fudge winding through vanilla) as much anymore, anywhere.

In London we used to get a 99 Flake. It's a vanilla soft-serve ice cream with a Flake chocolate bar stuck in it.

I prefer gelato...more intense flavour... vanilla, or raspberry. If I do get brand ice cream, then it's Haagen Daz Vanilla Bean.

I agree, I love Haagen Dazs! Try the green tea ice cream if you haven't already, it's so good.

Pathetic as it may sound - this was already on my list of things to eat while in London this August

Haven't, but I will - thanks for the recommendation - I already know I like 90% or more of the food you like!

Bluebell, Italian cream cake, followed by their spiced pumpkin pecan. It's probably a good thing they aren't available year round!

I've made them over here, but they just don't taste the same - and the unique cone shape is part of the fun.

We don't often have ice cream at home. But DH is a huge fan of milkshakes and, when he has a hankering, I get Perry's chocolate, and make both of us a shake.

We do like cones in the summer, though.

They sell Baskin Robbin in grocery stores now I just found that out as I am still a sucker for their chocolate chip.

Oh look who's on here, talking about ice cream!

This is a tough decision. It would have to be between a Magnum Mini Double Caramel, a Peanut Butter Cornetto and some Ben & Jerry's Caramel Chew Chew.
