Default We All Scream For It: The Ice Cream Thread

Because we have threads for every other component of a balanced diet.

Personally, I'm an ice cream superfan. Chocolate, butterscotch ripple, strawberry, banana, pistachio. I love them all! But I do have some Deep Thoughts to share.

I used to hate vanilla ice cream due to years of eating bland, dry, gooey "vanilla." Then one day, I was introduced to true, hand-made, made-with-real-vanilla-beans Vanilla ice cream, and it was like tasting a miracle.

I also used to like the Marble Slab-style of sticking random crap that is not ice cream into ice cream, until I realized that the more "mixins" it all had, the less ice cream there actually was. I still do appreciate their actual ice cream when it is mixin-free.

I like cookies and cream ice cream best.

Otherwise I'm a fan of vanilla.

Cookies 'n Cream is a close second right behind Cinnamon ice cream from Marble Slab/Cold Stone Creamery.

The best ice cream I've ever had was in Spain of all places. The region where I studied was famous for its dairy products.

I usually just go for vanilla or a fruity flavor (like orange or rasperry).

There used to be an ice custard place near where I lived in Canberra that was great. They'd tip it upside down so you could see it was solid.

I had a look at Baskin Robbins the other day, and it seems like about 29 of their 32 flavours are chocolate, or have chocolate mixed in.

You just can't beat the beautiful simplicity of a bowl of plain vanilla ice cream.

Peppermint is one, caramel is the other.

My personal favorite ice creams are peppermint stick (a special birthday treat) and mint chocolate chip. Ice cream and mint just seem to go together for some reason... the bite of the mint is balanced by the smoothness of the cream and vice versa. Honorable mentions go to lemon chiffon/custard, chocolate raspberry cup, and this kickass Breyer's ice cream with toffee bits in it. DAMN Breyer's has improved over the last thirty years.

Some terrible ice creams I've had include cotton candy (keep this unfrozen plz k thx), spumoni (WHAT THE HELL IS THIS CRAP?! It's like the Neopolitan from hell!), and most anything with real fruit chunks in it. Gag!

Frozen treats I like: fudge bars, creamsicles, crunch bars, drumsticks, Jell-O brand pudding pops, and the little mint-flavored Christmas trees they sell over the holidays. Hell, I love 'em all.

I'm extremely fond of Coldstone, especially the Cake Batter variety.

For "normal" ice cream there's cookies & cream (but only if it's made with Oreo), and that delicious hazelnut concoction Haagen Daz has been putting out lately.

Cookies and cream is perfect in small servings where it's a mouth-pleasing treat. For a big bowl of ice cream my old standby is mint chocolate chip.

Sweet cream is fabulous. We served at at the Coldstone rip-off I worked at throughout high school, and I never understood why you couldn't buy it at the grocery store. Part of the reason I'm so in love with vanilla is because it's as close to sweet cream as you can reliably get.

Can this be the milkshake thread too? Because milkshakes are the reason ice cream was invented. Over the years I have transformed pretty much every palatable substance (plus a few less palatable ones) in my kitchen into a milkshake.

Chubby Hubby. Those damn geniuses and their chocolate-covered peanut butter-filled pretzels in French vanilla...

So: chunks or no? I'm predicting this forum is overwhelmingly anti-chunk, but (maybe because) I love 'em. More flavors and surprises!

Cinnamon and Pumpkin are the twin kings that reign o'er all they survey in the land of ice cream.

I'm also really partial to red bean, black sesame, and my town's specialty black bean.

Our local dairy once made a Cookies and Cream out of Peanut Butter ice cream, and it was utterly awesome.

Speaking of which, local dairy ice cream is the best. If any of y'all are within spitting distance of actual cows, try to find some.


As for store-bought, I'm a fan of B&J's Half Baked. Cookie dough and brownies? Yes please.


I'm a little bitter about Cold Stone because when they moved into my town they put a local place that did more or less the same sort of thing out of business, and the local place was awesome because in addition to the usuals they would sometimes make flavors with Bailey's or Kahlua or Guiness.

Amaretto with chunks of black cherry. Nothing else comes close.

Peanut butter anything is the best in ice cream.

Of course, you could replace the word "ice cream" in that sentence and it would probably still be true.

Absolutely. They sell it in the student convenience store at the nearby dorm, but I can't buy it because when I do I eat it in one sitting.

I am a big supporter of peanut butter in ice cream, and Cold Stone's Peanut Butter Cup Perfection is my favorite thing. If I ever kill a man, it will be the dessert of my last meal.
