What's your favorite ice cream flavor/ brand? Or your favorite ice cream parlor?
I love Haagen Dazs french vanilla for a brand. Favorite flavors: root beer, spumoni, cherry custard. And Trader Joes has a great ice cream sandwich- vanilla in between 2 great, chewy choco chip cookies...
Cold Stone Creamery is good for a parlor. I've heard about Culver's, & when I get to a place that has one, I'm aimin for that frozen custard

I like the ice cream at Marble Slab Creamery better then Cold Stones.

I also really like Baskin Robbins 31 flavours.

I too also like Haagen Daaz alot. They have a flavour that is vanila with ice cream cone chunk, chocolate chips and some carmel, really good stuff. I also like this flavour that has vanilla swirled with black rasberry with chocolate chips. When I am just in a boring mood, I like plain chocolate or the chocolate with chocolate chips.

I tend to like more "artisan " made ice cream and adore Amaretto, Pistachio, and Hazelnut ice cream. Strawberries and cream is lovely too. I also love sorbets ( lemon, grapefruit, orange, raspberry, blackcurrant etc..) .
Of the commercial type of ice cream, I am quite partial to Haagen Dazs "cookie dough".

I like my ice cream not too sweet and with natural flavourings. I hate vanilla ice cream for example which has never seen a vanilla pod.

There's a food delivery service out here called Schwan's. Their ice cream is fantastic-so rich and creamy.

Culver's-one here in town and one day I'm going to try their frozen custard.

We bought a Cusinart commercial ice cream maker and have been experimenting.

Nothing is better than gelato (preferably eaten in Italy, but obviously this is not always possible).
Gelato flavors: mine is Pistachio, YMMV

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 love Haagen Daz's Coffee ice cream and the Bailey's one too. I also love Traverse City Chocolate Cherry and Mackinac Island Fudge. Oh and Neopolitian (?) -- the chocolate, strawberry, and vanilla one.

Pistachio is good too!

(However, with all of that said....I am not a huge ice cream fan, believe it or not. I would much prefer say, cake or tiramisu or mousse or a cream puff!)
