What's your favourite ice cream flavour?
Admittedly, I am not as big an ice cream fan as I was twenty-years ago, but I if had to pick I'd say I still enjoy plain old strawberry the best. But it's gotta' be good strawberry ice cream, none of that cheap crap.
Oh, and I just remembered. I fell in love with the grape ice cream I had years ago from a roadside stand, but I've never been able to find it since. It was chewy. Anyone had it?

I don't like ice cream unless it is covered with chocolate or some other "Two Fat Ladies" type of thing.

Vanilla/chocolate chip. Any other flavor is just a weak attempt to distract me, like single engine airplanes buzzing around King Kong's head. In fact, that's how they originally planned to end that movie. It was vanilla/chocolate chip ice cream... that killed the beast...

I have two favourites, and as boring as they may sound, there must be a reason these two are the prominent choices in every grocery store freezer section. The first is vanilla. Really good vanilla, mind. And while I loathe spreading brand names around, I have a personal connection with Haagen Daaz French Vanilla. It can generate sustainable recall with me. And yes, of course, the second is chocolate. Deep, dark, thick, black chocolate, with cocoa from the deepest darkest recesses of the African continent where the beans never see the light of day due to the lush overgrowth that induces the plant to produce a dark, delicious, almost earth-like flavour, which, when mixed with the cream of very contented cows, create a culinary combination unequalled by any other desserts. There used to be a general store at Big Bay (the other side of Owen Sound) called The Big Bay General Store, they used to make their own ice cream there, and I remember chocolate being prety good, but I also had some remarkable chocolate 'tartufo' on a piazza somewhere in Italy, and they had obviously obtained, through legal means or otherwise, the 'good' beans...

I'll admit to having a fondness for good vanilla, Hagan Das or Breyers. But I truly love mint chocolate chip, the green variety.
And homemade ice cream is the absolute best. Tracing and Kymm to me to a place in Greenwich Village that was really excellent even if it was $4 for a small cup. I could have eaten a gallon.

Hagan Das Chocolate

I Can't live without Chocolate Chocolate Chip from Hagan Daaz ice cream! I eat at least a pint of it each day or else i die! I usually run out, so luckily the store is really close to my house, so i buy more! No i dont want vanilla or strawberry or even Moose Tracks- chocolate swiss with hershey's crunch from marble slab isn't even what revives me! Its gotta be the chocolate chocolate chip from hagan daaz that makes my life go on! Not chocolate chocolate chip form Ben and Jerry's, Breyer's, or anyhitng else- Hagan Daaz! Good stuff, good stuff! I will be barried with it when my soul goes on to the ice crema heaven! Now that i have shared this nice bit of information with you, I will be going now! Merry Ice Creamin to all!

I have a fond affection for HD cinnamon flavour. However, I am unable to find the stuff in the UK! Last tried in the USA. Does anyone know where I can get some of the most orgasmic flavour around?
