Thursday Thirteen 212: Ice Cream!

In 1984, President Ronald Reagan proclaimed July National Ice Cream Month. To celebrate, I'm offering up thirteen of my favorite flavors. Feel free to grab a bowl or a cone and join me!

1. Double Fudge Brownie (Edy's Slow-Churned and my absolute fave: Chocolate ice cream with bits of fudge and brownie in it. Mmm...)
2. Mint Cookie Crunch (Edy's; basically a mint cookies 'n cream)
3. Mint Chocolate Chip (Schoep's)
4. Cherry Chocolate Chip (Edy's)
5. Badger Tracks (Schoep's: Vanilla ice cream with caramel sauce and semi-sweet chips)
6. Pumpkin Pie (Edy's, only available in Autumn and soooo good.)
7. Raspberry Chip (Edy's again: Vanilla ice cream with chocolate chips and swirls of raspberry)
8. Cookie Dough (Edy's, Schoep's, etc)
9. Cookies and Cream (Edy's, Schoep's, etc)
10. Butter Brickle (NOT to be confused with Butter Pecan. One has toffee, which I like, the other nuts, which I do not.)
11. Mango (Edy's Limited Edition—usually only available in summer; Mango ice cream with bits of mango fruit.)
12. Moose Tracks (Schoep's: Chocolate ice cream with mini Peanut Butter cups and bits of fudge)
13. Vanilla (Best for sundaes, rootbeer floats, or pie à la mode)

So, what's your favorite flavor? Do you prefer a dish, wafer, sugar or waffle cone? (I personally prefer the dish or a waffle cone.)

Alice Audrey said...

I love pumpkin pie ice cream.

Shelley Munro said...

I have to say that you have some great flavors of ice cream over in the US. I haven't had an ice cream for ages. Hubby makes some very nice ice cream. I like chocolate or fresh berry.

Ron. said...

Ben & Jerry's Cherry Garcia. I could take it intravenously.

Scarlett Sanderson said...

I'm jealous of all the flavours you get in the US. When I read things like that, I really miss living there :/

Although to be fair, my favourite is plain ole vanilla :)

Darla M Sands said...

I actually like butter pecan. I suppose there's room for all of us. :) Happy TT!

colleen said...

I had me some cherry garcia last night.

Paige Tyler said...

Totally love ice cream! I think my favorite is probably peanut butter swirl!

Oh, this is just cruel. I love ice cream but due to some stomach problems lately, I've been banned from them. Oh, how I want to just read each of them slowly. With 100+ degree temps, it's better than the last erotica novel for me at this point. :)

Happy T13!

Alice: Pumpkin ice cream is one of the best parts of fall. I look forward to the "limited edition" flavor in stores, and have to have at least one pumpkin blizzard from DQ.

Shelley: Sounds like it's time to get hubby to make you some ice cream. ;)

Ron: That is a good flavor, though I'm not as fanatical about B&J's as some. ;)

Heather said...

Scarlett: I guess we like variety here. Not just hundreds of flavors or variations thereof, but dozens of different brands, locally and internationally.

Darla:'re welcome to all the Butter Pecan you want. You can have the Rocky Road, too.

Colleen: You seem like the Cherry Garcia type. I hope you enjoyed every bite! *g*

Heather said...

Paige: You'd get along well with my younger sister. Her favorite is chocolate peanut butter.

Kay: Triple digit temps and no ice cream? Oh, now that would suck. Hope you enjoyed the virtual feast!

JO said...

My favorite is avocado flavor at Mackay's....

Jana said...

Ben and Jerry's Phish Phood
Blue Bell's Mocha Almond Fudge
Any brand's Coffee

Those are my top three picks. But really, if anyone hands me a bowl of ice cream I'm gonna eat it no matter what the flavor is. Unless it's, you know, something gross. :-D

And thanks. Now I want ice cream.

Heather said...

Jo: Avocado? Okay, that's one flavor I would have to pass on. Ugh!

Jana: MWAHAHAHA... What can I say, I'm evil that way. *VBG*

Xakara said...

Cookies and Cream is a favorite and then there's Caramel Cone, Coffee Toffee Crunch and Cherry Garcia. Mmmmm...

Happy T13!

Heather said...

Xakara: I'd be okay with any of those but the coffee flaored one. Yuck! Also, can't comment on the blog you posted to today. It won't let me. *sniff*

CountryDew said...

Well, those sound good and fattening. And here I am on a diet!

Heather said...

Anita: LOL...sorry! *vbg*

Maddy Barone said...

My fave ice cream is the one you don't like: Butter Pecan. In a bowl with hot fudge sauce oozing over it. Yum.

Xakara said...

Hey, Heather!

I don't drink coffee, but coffee flavored ice cream grew on me. It comes in Vanilla toffee crunch, so you can have that instead. *smile*

I do apologize about the link. I thought Dreamwidth would work since LJ wouldn't load. So much for that. But LJ is up now and it cross-posted, so here's hoping the new signature link works!

Happy T13,

ZANZIBAR CHOCOLATE! Bar none. Srsly. Yum city. On a stick.

I love the stuff. (Too much; I'd weigh a ton if I went there often - I like ice cream WAAAAY to much.)

Say. I wonder if there's any in the freezer?

Happy TT!!
