Milkshakes are a-ok, since they are made with ice cream!

And now I'm reminded that I haven't used the milkshake maker in a long time, and we bought chocolate syrup a while ago...

So: chunks or no? I'm predicting this forum is overwhelmingly anti-chunk, but (maybe because) I love 'em. More flavors and surprises!
My Ben and Jerry's flavour of choice is "Chunky Monkey." Sure, it has chunks, but underneath all that is a really good store-bought banana ice cream!

And while I'm mostly anti-chunk, I can dig them if the chunks are there to add flavour, instead of screw me out of ice creamy value. When I want ice cream, I want ice cream, you know?

I can never eat ice cream in a cone; it always ends up a gigantic mess, so I get my ice cream and frozen yogurt in cups and eat with a spoon.

As for a favorite flavor, I'd have to say chocolate chip cookie dough! It's pretty delicious for Thrifty ice cream.

Eff me how did I forget about this. Ice cream with chocolate chip cookie dough in it is amazing and delicious and I get it whenever possible. It's truly a major favorite of mine. Probably because I love cookie dough so much in general, when I make cookies I tend to prefer the dough stage..

I feel the need to introduce you guys to hokey pokey ice cream. The New Zealanders invented; it's closest to honeycomb icecream with honeycomb chunks, but it's really something else.

Also, this should be the spider thread. I love spiders! I like Vanilla Coke precisely because it tastes a bit like a coke spider.

Vanilla. If I really want some other flavor I can just mix it in.

Okay, from context this has got to be some sort of Aussie slang for a float. Please tell me it is.


Speaking of floats, I got one from a bar in Raleigh that was vanilla ice cream in Young's Double Chocolate Stout, and it was deelicious.

For a very brief period America had a fascination with pop rocks ice cream. I didn't think it was a very good combination, though... pop rocks will rock the hell out of your mouth when fresh but after buried under frozen milk for a week they just lose their potency.

You know what they should make? Pocky ice cream. Cover the little sticks completely in chocolate so they don't get soggy. I would so totally eat that.

Yeah, I remember the pop rocks craze. I think it ended when Baskin Robbins got sued over a kid going to the hospital after eating Shrek-flavoured ice cream (with pop rocks.)

Which proves either the evil of putting pop rocks in ice cream, or the evil of Shrek.

It depends. Is a float ice-cream + soft drink (or 'soda')? If so, haven't you noticed that the ice-cream doesn't really float?

So?

Also, the best Ben & Jerry's flavors are Turtle Soup and Pistachio. My favorite thing in general though is to take Vanilla ice cream and put lots of cinnamon in it.

It does though!!! Just takes the right soda vs ice cream balance

banana ice cream is delicious, and out right now are the Dreyer's Girl Scout cookie flavors (available in light)!!! <3 Samoa's and can't find anymore: Tagalogs, I'm certain I missed out on a great thing

Yeah, but it doesn't "spider" either. That's not even a verb!

Does "spider" refer to the way the soda works its way through the ice cream in long, spider-like veins? It's the only way I can make sense of the term.

Apparently it refers to the foam working its way through the ice-cream.

Apparently you can do beer spiders. I think I know what I'm doing this weekend.

Don't let the agents of Big Chocolate fool you, chocolate does NOT have to be in every flavor. One time I got some honey + chocolate chunks ice cream and it made me ill.

And be sure to get all ice cream in a cone - it won't go into a landfill, making it green TM.

Edy's once made this York Peppermint Pattie flavor. It was mini-patties mixed into the most sublime peppermint ice cream. I would buy that ice crema without anything mixed in if I could. So refreshing.

Also I'm a sucker for any coffee based flavors.

Oh yeah, I'm pretty sure I mentioned it in another thread, but soft-serve Green Tea ice cream is totally awesome. Especially on a hot summer day in Kyoto, but whatever. Also, Haagen Dasz makes a boss Green Tea flavor, and I wish they'd actually sell it in the states. For some reason HD is big in Japan.

My favorite is Blue Bell's Banana Pudding ice cream.

If it is available in your area, give it a try.



Blue Bell's Homeade Vanilla is runner up.

Cookies and Cream with for reals oreos is great too, of course.

Oreo ice cream sandwiches used to be big, sloppy glorious messes of deliciousness, but then Breyers chickened out and changed it to these little hard discs with plain light vanilla bricks between them. It just ain't the same.

In Australia, they put ice cream on spiders. This is common knowledge. The cold puts them in a kind of hibernation, or stasis, so they may be safely eaten without the eater having to fear being bitten. Of course, this doesn't neutralize the spider's venom, which is why millions of Australians die from poisonous spiders every year.

Were you aware of it?!

Publix Chocolate Trinity ice cream.

It's chocolate ice cream with swirls of chocolate and hunks of chocolate.

It's really good on top of brownies.

It's usually only available around Christmas, but I love some good peppermint ice cream.

I'm talking about the pink stuff here, not that green "mint chocolate chip" nonsense that's available all year round, while peppermint is sealed away for some tragic reason.

The worst thing that can happen with a float is if you make it with ice cream that's especially cheap or that has been thawed and re-frozen too many times. While floating in the soda, the cream starts to separate from the ice, and you wind up with the equivalent of "snow with cream" floating in your drink.

It's still tasty, of course, but that's not what you wanted when you made it.
