Do You Love Ice Cream

United States
July 18, 2008 9:49pm CST
I have been eating a lot of ice cream the last couple of months. I must admit, my tastes are very expensive. I love the reese cup, chocolate mint and other expensive ice cream. Our budget just wont allow me to purchase it now though. My husband just purchased a cheap ice cream. You know the kind that comes in the gallon pails. Well this was vanilla orange ice cream and it is so good. It tastes like the dream bars. Have you ever tried this kind of ice cream? What kind of ice cream do you eat?

That exact same huge bucket is the one in my freezer. Orange sherbet with vanilla icecream. It has a nice intense, deep orange flavor. I mostly stick to the big pails, if it is me doing the buying. I am very Scotch.

I have had "bucket" ice cream before and it's not bad. I've never cared for the orange and vanilla ice cream mix though. I haven't had ice cream in years but I used to love vanilla, cookie dough flavor, and any peanut butter chocolate combo. These days, I just have fruit sorbet on occasion.

I doubt there is a flavor I don't like. But some of my favorites are mint chocolate chip, strawberry, tin roof sundae and blue bunny's homemade vanilla. I love icecream and occasionally treat myself to DQ. Last week I went and tried the girl scout thin mint cookie blizzard. Boy that was good.

I like the Rocky Road a lot myself or I buy plain vanilla ice cream with oreo cookies. I get the cheap brand that doesn't cost as much as regular oreo cookies. I like to add them in vanilla ice cream and sometimes I like to buy magic shell in chocolate and also in caramel to add in. It tastes really good. Now I am craving ice cream.

I love ice cream too! I really like the reese cup ice cream too! I also LOVE chocolate chip cookie dough, cookies and cream, birthday cake ice cream, etc. Oh wow, that sounds good, the vanilla orange cream! I love creamsicles! I don't know if I've seen that kind before, I have had the pail before in vanilla and cookies and cream, oh and one other kind that was like a rainbow of colors--I always called it play dough vanilla, I really liked that because of the colors! hehe But I haven't seen that in a long time I don't think.

I like ice cream, but only on occasions. I find it far too sweet and rich sometimes. My favourite kind of ice cream would probably have to be plain vanilla for its versatility. I find that milkshakes and floaters (or spiders as we call them) are best with vanilla ice cream. If I were to have ice cream on its own, my choice would have to be lime. That goes for pretty much everything. If anything is available in lime, I'll take it.

I must admit, ice cream is my guilty pleasure. Although, I recently shed 16 pounds I find myself indulging in ice cream occasionally. Good thing that Edy's Ice cream has come out with this WONDERFUL double churned fat free ice cream which also happens to be sweetened with Splenda so I don't feel too guilty about eating it. I only have about one scoop after an early dinner. My favorite is french vanilla.

I love ice cream. But I always try to not eat very often, it does not happen though. As this summer is so hot my intake of ice cream is going up. I always like vanilla.I am not very much to the brand name, I try different ice cream of my favorite flavor. Also like cones.

I love ice cream, but I try not to eat it all that much. Last night though I had Moose Tracks ice cream... I loved that. I also love to have soft ice cream from Dairy Queen... and I've also had soft ice cream custard before and that is really rich and good. I like that Vanilla Orange Swirl that you are talking about... ours comes in a swirl and it comes in a half and half portion in the container.

Your a girl after my own heart. I love ice cream and eat it year round. I have been known to put on a sweater, in the house while eating ice cream if it makes me cold, thats only in the winter though. I just got down having an ice cream cone, the ice cream was moose tracks. I like the blends too, the orange/vanilla kind is also good, I used to love eating dream bars when I was a kid. A few years ago my sister bought me an ice cream maker machine. I have been using that alot. My grandson doesn't want me to put it away. He said leave it out gramma, he is 3 yrs. old. I let him help me make it, he does the stirring before I hook it all up. Its actually cheaper to buy the ice cream rather then make it. Homemade ice cream is more fun for the grandkids though. I don't care how we get it, just as long as we have a supply of it. I figure its healthy, just think of the calcium we are getting, hehe.

Well since it's Summer we have to keep ice cream in the house. My boyfriend and I love chocolate chip. I ususally buy the brand that's on sale when we decide to go grocery shopping. You would be surprised at the deals you can get in the supermarket. We have had Breyers, which is really good and all natural. Sometimes the store's own brand isn't bad either. I like other flavors but he seems to prefer chocolate chip so that's what we seem to be sticking to.

I've tried that kind of ice cream and it is pretty good. But, I got spoiled to Blue Bell http://www.bluebell.com/home.aspx while living in Texas and to me that's the best there is. Wal-Mart, here in NC has it now so I am VERY happy. Their Old Fashioned Vanilla is wonderful. Our budget is a bit tight but, thats the ice cream we buy and we only buy Folgers Breakfast Blend coffee. To me taste is very important in some things.

I love ice cream very much and there are so many ways to eat it. You have the banana split that you can have three scoops of different flavors, You have the sundae and that you also can pick out what flavor you want of ice cream and than the sauce of your choosing is dipped over the ice cream with nuts and whipped cream and of course the cherry on top. Than of course you have the multitudes of different flavors you can buy in the grocery store. There is bubble gum flavor which actually has pieces of gum in it. Chocolate chip cookie dough is another good flavor of ice cream. Than there is the strawberry that has great big chunks of strawberries in the ice cream. I have eaten the ice cream that you talked about with the taste of dream bar to it. I have to agree it does taste like the dream bar you eat on the stick. I like to try different flavors when I buy my ice cream. There are a whole lot more flavors. Too many to put here. But I love them all and try different flavors to see which ones I like.

Dear friend, When I was a kid ice cream was my main weakness and my family members used to make me much obedient by demanding purchase ice creams. Even now also I do like ice creams I do like chocobars and casata and in plain ice creams I do like vanilla. Mostly ice creams I do like have mixed with fruit salads.
