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?
