Ice Cream

A few days ago my wife brought home a carton of ice cream. This was a real treat because we harldly ever eat ice cream. I like ice cream, but since Brittany doesn't really care for it, I don't eat it often. It just feels weird. I personally think ice cream is something you eat with someone else.

My personal favorite is peanut butter and chocolate. Baskin-Robbins has the best peanut butter and chocolate ice cream on the planet. http://www.baskinrobbins.com/IceCream/ I like Ben and Jerry's as well, but I don't think it comes close. I have two favorite spots to eat ice cream. One is in downtown Iowa City, Iowa. I can't remember the name of it, but it was nice little spot to stop, eat some cream, and talk. It had a little spot to sit up in the window and people watch. My favorite spot of all time was the little Haagen-Dazs shop in St. Martin. My wife and I got ice cream there every day on our honeymoon. The people in that shop were so nice.

I am not a fan of soft serve ice cream. A lot of people go nuts for it, but I just don't really care for it. It just doesn't seem like it is real ice cream. That is why when I drop in to DQ or something like that, I get the Mr. Misty.

What does everyone else like? What is your favorite flavor? One scoop or two? What brand do you like best? Soft serve or "real" ice cream?

Discuss.

I agree with you on the soft serve thing. Amanda loves DQ, so that's where we usually end up. I still enjoy my Pecan Cluster Blizzard, though.

I hear you on Baskin Robbins. Good stuff. Unfortunately, there is only on location in DM (which is actually very close to my house), but the place is kind of run down, which doesn't encourage me to return.

My favorite ice cream establishment is Brusters Ice Cream, in particular their Destin, FL location.

My favorite flavors (in order):
Butter Pecan
Chocolate
Turtle Sundae

Well, well, well,
I am an ice cream-aholic! My favorite as well is Chocolate Peanut Butter. The one with the chocolate ice cream and ribbons of peanut butter swirled in...oh my! Just thinking about it makes my mouth water. I also like the Cold Stone Mud Pie Mojo treat...so yummy! And the Ben and Jerry's Coffee coffee buzz buzz buzz.
Usually if we have ice cream in the house, Kyle gets a bowl and I end up eating the rest. I am not opposed to eating ice cream all by myself...hey it's good:)
