Fandango lightens his provocative question this week by asking…
What is your favorite ice cream? Please list not only your favorite flavor, but also the brand that is your favorite. Please be specific.
To help narrow this down, I’m considering only the ice cream itself for my answer. For example, I love coffee ice cream with choccy syrup or splashed with Bailey’s Irish Cream. But alone? Nah, not my favorite. That mango ice cream I had last week was delicious, but it wouldn’t have been quite as fab without the strawberries. So nope, not my favorite.
The one flavor of ice cream that is always completely scrumptious all by itself is… chocolate chip cookie dough with a vanilla base ~ never chocolate. I don’t really care for chocolate ice cream or cake (fudgy brownies excepted), but I do love choccy as chips and candy. Anyway. Not to get even more controversial during this fun post, but because [reasons] I will no longer buy Ben & Jerry’s ~ sadly, they made my previous fave flavor of CC cookie dough. However, I have since discovered that Häagen-Dazs makes an absolutely fantastic CC cookie dough, so I’m choosing that one as my favorite.
In an amazing coincidence, my second fave flavor has always been Häagen-Dazs rum raisin. This isn’t as popular as the ubiquitous cookie dough ice cream, so you don’t see it all over the place made by every brand, but it is incredibly yummy. My third place winner is Baskin Robbins Pralines ‘N Cream. Mmm!
To be fair, I haven’t tried these flavors in every brand out there ~ and I see that Häagen-Dazs makes a salted caramel and a caramel cone, either of which might possibly supplant BR for third place, except I haven’t tried them yet. I reserve the right to change my mind if and when additional evidence is available.
