    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.

    I like almost all ice cream, though I tend to go for either chocolate, strawberry, mint chocolate, or toasted coconut. I especially love frozen yogurt in any of those flavors! Yumtown. Population = me.

    I loved TCBY's White Chocolate Mousse frozen yogurt, but now that have closed here and that leaves me

    Yesss!

    I had some incredible ice cream when we visited the Big Island of Hawaii a few years ago: White Chocolate Ginger. But it was a tough choice!

    Mint chip, or no, blue moon...come to think of it tin roof is my favorite. Unless, of course, chocolate mousse or cherry cheesecake is available. On really hot and thirsty days lime sherbet is great too.

    Cookies and Cream.

    Although I think that Stone Cold Homemade Vanilla with graham cracker and cherries is pretty good too....

    I used to be strictly chocolate but I've started to develop a liking for mint chocolate chip. Yum!

    Same here, chocolate ice cream with peanut butter inside (not the vanilla kind with chunks of chocolate and peanut butter chips).

    I prefer steak flavor myself. Yes, that's right. Steak flavored ice cream. Better yet - actual steak on a cone.

    Once upon a time I was assistant manager of a Baskin-Robbins store. They had many popular flavors, but the flavor ordered most was....wait for it.....vanilla.
    The aroma of freshly baked waffle cones wafting through the air was charming at first, but after a while the sickeningly sweet scent began to cause revulsion. I don't think I will ever be able to walk in to an ice cream store and get hit with that scent without being immediately transported in time back to my BR days.


    One of the fringe benefits of working there was that you were encouraged to sample every type of ice cream, the purpose being ostensibly to familiarize employees with flavors to suggest to customers, but I think the ice cream magnates of the world figured out pretty early on that employees were going to help themselves to the product as soon as your head was turned anyways. I didn't actually take advantage of the free ice cream perk very often and maybe had a sundae once every couple weeks, but other coworkers elevated this perk pretty much to the level of embezzlement.

    My first ever job, when I was 15, was working at the local Baskin-Robbins. I don't remember the manager ever encouraging us to sample the flavors. We were allowed one free scoop per day. This only encouraged us to blatantly violate that policy and we would sneak product home behind the view of the camera all the time. We also had a great time playing "hockey" with the brooms and chunks of the dry ice we kept in the back when it wasn't busy. Crazy kids we were.

    Huckleberry is my favorite. Also like strawberry. Butter Pecan or praline can be quite nice.

    My son chides me that when we go to the local ice cream parlor that I usually order huckleberry or strawberry, while he samples the weekely specials. Neither he nor I are particularly fond of chocolate ice cream.

    It is probably not a good thing the people behind the counter know us by name.

    Ben and Jerrys Milk and Cookies if I'm staying local.

    Coldstone Creamery cake batter mixed with graham cracker pie crust if I'm lucky enough to get out of state and find a CC. Then again, its probably best for my heart and stomach that I can't easily access one.

    You're tempting me into ice cream for lunch....

    Speaking of bad rap, there was that Vanilla Ice guy who was pretty bland. There's no rap on Bobby "Blue" Bland who is neither vanilla nor bland.

    Slightly off-topic, but 7 years in VT and I still haven't gotten used to the term "Creemie" for soft serve ice cream. The alliteration is there, but it still feels so awkward (and sometimes a little dirty) to ask for. Does anybody else call it this?

    Growing up, ice cream was always big in our house. I lived on a dairy farm and when my dad would get paid by the dairy each month or every other week or however often they pay you, he had the option of getting a portion of his payment in dairy products so he also got a few big containers of ice cream like they scoop out of at an ice cream shop so we had a freezer in our garage that was always like our own personal Baskin Robbins.

    I love nearly all flavors of ice cream. In fact, when we were house hunting, being able to walk to an ice cream place was actually a prerequisite! Our Realtor gave us a gift card to the local place in our neighborhood at the closing (and another one last year on our 1-year anniversary in the house... I wonder if I should expect a 2nd one next week on our 2-year anniversary?).

    Ice cream is also one of the reasons I got into running everyday. When I was in the Marines, we had a Baskin Robbins on one of the bases I was stationed at but my barracks was about 2 miles away and I had no car. So every other day I would walk up there, get my ice cream, and walk back. After a few weeks, I decided that was taking too long so I decided to start running there for ice cream and then running back. It made for a nice break in my run. Even now, if I am out running in the evenings after work or on the weekends, I usually have a few sweaty dollars in my pocket and know which routes to take to run past the best ice cream places and frozen custard stands.

    My favorites are rocky road or other types of chocolate ice cream with all sorts of junk mixed in. And even though it's not in chocolate, I loooooooooove Chubby Hubby from Ben & Jerry's.

    All that being said, there's nothing wrong with plain chocolate or vanilla; I've had a nice bowl of plain vanilla ice cream every night this week before bed.

    One reason -
    Utah State University is one of only 15 colleges in the nation that makes ice cream!
