    The Ice Cream Thread...

    What's your favoriye ice cream brands and flavors. I must,admit,I'm kind of a snob when it,comes to ice cream I like the higher end brands. I love dark chocolate and if it's mixed with vanilla that's the best. Or chocolate and peanut butter yummy. My new addiction is Haagen - Dazs Gelato Stracciatella, which is Italian style. It is a vanilla sweet cream ice cream with dark chocolate shavings throughout. Awesome! They also have a dark chocolate Gelato ice cream with dark chocolate chunks mixed in. Another newfound favorite of mine. What's yours?

    I like espresso chip, but it makes a lousy late night snack.

    Chubby Hubby from B&J's is extremely dangerous, so I don't go there but once every couple of years.

    I'm waiting for some national brand to make a pumpkin and chocolate chip ice cream. They come out with pumpkin every fall but leave out the chips.

    When in doubt, mint chocolate chip.

    Haagen Dazs / Dryers Chocolate or Neapolitan that comes in that gallon plastic bucket

    I used to work at a Strauss Organic Creamery out in Tomales. They started to make Vanilla , Chocolate and Blackberry Ice Cream by the pint. I'd bring home milk crate fulls of Ice Cream... then have one whole pint a night.

    I'm not picky, there is no brand that is safe. Rocky Road is my favorite. I was going to start this very thread a few days ago, must be the heat.

    Vanilla ice cream scooped into a smoked
    Porter or a Russian Imperial Stout.
    I do a home brewed RIS with raspberries that is awesome for floats.

    Re: The Ice Cream Thread...

    Coconut Bliss. Non dairy, non soy, made of coconut milk and shredded coconut. Low sugar and high fat. Just a perfect, super tasty and healthy snack. Love it every night for the last 2 weeks.

    Rocky Road was my dads favourite from Basin and Robins.

    It doesn't really matter what the make is. But I love DQ Blizzards

    Bad ice cream...... no!
    But is there such thing as too much ice cream?

    Several years ago my girlfriend and I went to my brothers house for a BBQ. His GF has an 8 year old daughter. My sister was in town with my 8 year old niece. So my girl friend and I take the two 8 year old girls to the local ice cream shop Frostys. I tell them get what you want. My niece orders a large vanilla cone. So of course the other girl orders the same. So we're waiting and all the cones come out. We hand them out and all of a sudden my brothers girlfriends daughter let's out a whine and starts crying. We are like "what's wrong honey" she say's crying and whaling "it's too big" I look at my girlfriend and we started laughing having never heard a kid say that about ice cream, especially before even one bite. Of course I had to throw a joke out to my girl friend saying "she sounds just like you baby". To this day that whole incident comes up in laughter between us.

    The best tasting "ice cream" for me is gelato

    Gelato is made from milk and all natural ingredients, which makes it substantially denser.

    We go to a local spot called La Paloma. I don't eat any dairy so my choices are limited but they make a Soy version that you can't tell the difference, according to my local foodies.

    This place also has 20 different non-dairy fruit flavours and ice cream for diabetics!

    My favorite is chocolate hazelnut

    Speaking of too much, some of the B&J's flavors just have too much chunky stuff in it. I don't buy ice cream to eat a candy bar.

    Rocky Road, huh? And your user name is Dirty $anchez?

    I think D$ might be opening up to us all a little bit here today.

    My all time favorite is Choclate Chip. Doesn't matta what brand. I also love RiteAid's Pistachio Nut. I also like BR's Jamoca Almond Fudge. Can never go wrong with plain old vanilla, too.

    +1 around the Washignton, DC area, Carmen's has the best gelato. Salted carmel is other worldly. Their lemon gelato has real bits of rind in it! I also get a hankering for lime green with vanilla ice cream here and there as well.
