my father’s case: pralines and cream (get the guy a sample spoon, lady, like that do at Baskin-Robbins)
I didn’t know that Starbucks (known for taking something simple and spinning it into something very complicated) was in the ice cream business. ;/
You forgot neopolitian Yech!
Unless one wishes to test the waters stick with what you know ;-)
Try Ben and Jerry’s new “Impeaches and Cream”
Scoop was 30 cents and people complained back then. Now a single scoop is over $3
Vanilla, chocolate, or strawberry is good enough? Bah! There’s a company that makes black raspberry with chocolate chunks about the size of kidney bean (and from good dark chocolate as well). They also make real vanilla with actual vanilla beans. Makes Häagen-Dazs look like the stuff you used to get in a little cup with your school cafeteria lunch. And then there’s the real deal frozen custard we can get around here… Oooo, baby!
Well at least it’s not Red Bean Ice Cream.
if i could have it….strawberry every time!!!!
Baskin-Robbins 31 Flavors, foundef 1945.
Rocky Road, Neapolitan, all oldies but goodies too.
I remember dad ordering a licorice and pumpkin cone about this time of year, so pre-1950s?
My mom’s was butter-pecan. Never liked it until I got older. Still not one of my top 3.
I remember when Yuengling ice cream was around. Their peanut butter was fantastic! Huge gobs of PB swirled in it. Yuengling went into the dairy business during prohibition. (FYI- No, I do not drink their or anyone else’s beer.)
From today’s Comics Curmudgeon:
Wow sounds like pluggers can’t deal with the overwhelming set of consumer choices generated by contemporary capitalism
A plugger forgets Baskin Robbins and Howard Johnson’s?
Aw, try it, you might like it. Afterall, it is ice cream.
Dog Man: “Do you have any chocolate?”·Bear Woman: “You do know dogs shouldn’t eat that, right?”·Dog Man: “It’s okay, I’m lactose intolerant.”"
These days I’m pretty much limited to Breyer’s Carb Smart. It’s sweetened with Splenda & is the only “diabetic-friendly” ice cream that tastes like the real thing (& has the proper “mouthfeel”). It’s hard to find though…some stores carry the bars & others only carry cartons of vanilla. Sigh.
“Bittersweet nugget” has to be what chocolate chip wants to be when it grows up, with chunks of good European 70%+ cocoa chocolate. Make a version with Splenda instead of sugar & sign me up!
Hadn’t been to a Baskin-Robbins in a long time and stopped last week. A rotating special was there and I had to get a scoop! Baseball nut: Vanilla with a raspberry swirl and lots of cashews. Yummy!
I remember when BRs had a bittersweet chocolate ice cream that was good. I don’t like chips in my ice cream.
And Pistachio, the green one. That was the “fancy” one when I was a kid.
there’s no choice…i’ve always been a vanilla kind of guy….although coffee is a close second
Oddly enough, Stewarts doesn’t have Strawberry by the half-gallon. If you want Strawberry, you go to the counter for a hand-packed pint—frozen so hard that if you want it right away, you need a rock-hammer to put a dent in it.
