While not in the ice cream aisle, I did try Dairy Queen's seasonal snicker-doodle cookie dough ice cream. It is cinnamon ice cream with the snicker-doodle cookie dough. It was excellent.

I looked for the Talenti apple pie, but they only had the pumpkin pie flavor at the store. None of the other brands had any good seasonal ice creams that I wanted to try. Blue Bunny did have a cinnamon ice cream, but for some reason it was excluded from the current sale on Blue Bunny ice cream. I guess I'm cheap, but I didn't want to pay an extra $2 for cinnamon.

Turkey Hill had a caramel hot chocolate, but the "hot" in "hot chocolate" was because it was a spicy caramel. I like spicy foods, but for ice cream? I wasn't sure... Anyone try this?

I have been surprised that Safeway's generic brand of ice cream makes a very delicious Pumpkin Pie ice cream... what makes it really good is they add little bits of pie crust in it.

Also.. not sure if its out yet... but Trader Joe's has a Pecan Pie ice cream that tastes like eating little bites of very cold pecan pie. Its delicious.

I need to look for those Talenti holiday flavors - I'm currently finishing off a carton of Coconut Chocolate Almond which is my favorite flavor of theirs - tastes like Almond Joy bars.

I just bought 2 big old containers of Bluebell's Peppermint Bark and Pecan Pralines and Cream. I know the pecan one isn't exactly seasonal but since I eat pecans mostly in the colder months I figured it qualifies! LOL!

I've also heard some buzz about Bluebell's Christmas Cookies coming to stores very soon and this is the description for it: The holiday-inspired fan-favorite combines chocolate chip, snickerdoodle and sugar cookies with a sugar cookie-flavored ice cream, red sprinkles and a green icing swirl.

Sounds almost too sweet for me but I'm willing to give it a try!

Howard Johnson's!!!! When I was a kid, we were allowed to pick where and what we wanted for dinner. Every single year, my choice was Lobster Cantonese at Wayne Wongs Chinese restaurant followed by dessert at HoJo's of peppermint stick ice cream. I used to save the Big round pieces of peppermint candy the size of a pea to eat later.

Damn I miss that stuff.

Haagen Daz peppermint bark is excellent, should be here sometime in December.

I think Trader Joes had a pumpkin ice cream that was pretty good too.

Not yet. Sadly, I can't eat ice cream anymore the way I used to. I now just look at it longingly in my grocer's freezer, not buying any 95% of the time.

Just tried the pumpkin pie and it is delicious - smooth, perfect balance of pie spices, and little bits of crust.

Has anyone else found something new in the ice cream aisle?
I love many of the seasonal ice creams! Eggnog, pumpkin, and peppermint bark are favorites.
Have not had caramel apple, but I love that combo so I will be looking for it.

What brands does everyone think are best?

I can never understand why Christmas ice cream goes on sale after New Years. It still tastes good in January.
