Friday Fun…Chocolate Ice Cream…Yes or No?


June 7 is National Chocolate Ice Cream Day!  I’m all for any day that celebrates chocolate. 

Did you know that some polls list Vanilla as the favorite ice cream flavor here in the States? However some polls list Chocolate as the favorite ice cream. 


Want to know what the most iconic ice cream in your state is???  Texas favors homemade vanilla ice cream…Blue Bell to be specific!!! (we have in our freezer a gallon of Blue Bell homemade vanilla ice cream with real strawberries!)


If I’m out, I almost always choose chocolate ice cream…my friends look at me with a “how boring” look!!!




What about you?  Chocolate ice cream? Yes or no?  What’s your favorite ice cream?

When it comes to ice cream, Dolores and I have many favorites.

We are currently enjoying Friendly's Vienna Macha Chunk and like it topped with some Caffe Lolita Coffee Liqueur.

You can probably find this ice cream at Walmart or another local store. We have Giant in our neighborhood.

Hi Kathy,
Ice cream alone would be a version of chocolate (Rocky Road). Washington is coffee? Who woulda thunk? I need to go to Montana. I've never even heard of Smores ice cream. It sounds good!

Carol Williams I saw S'mores ice cream recently but can't remember where. I use coffee ice cream when I make Brandy Freezes.

Not a fan of chocolate ice cream in and of itself.   But chocolate chip, or chocolate chip mint is to die for.  lol

How funny Mark Don McInnes, Sandpoint-Idaho I'm the opposite! I don't like to run into things like chips and nuts when I have ice cream!!!

I enjoyed Fudge Ripple Ice cream - Vanilla ice cream with ripples of fudge running through it. Today, my favorite is chocolate chip ice cream is my favorite. Vanilla ice cream with chocolate chips.  As to AZ favorite never had it and since this flavor doesn't have chocolate, I doubt if I will ever taste it.

Absolutely Kathy!  Don't have ice cream very often but I used to love Mint Chocolate Chip.  In fact, now I recall, we stopped by an ice cream store and I had a little dish of it -last year.  It still was yummy as I remembered but very rich! Would I order it again - absolutely!

Now that's MY kind of day...but then I will eat chocolate ice cream any day. Especially with cholocate and caramel sauce on it with some pecans or walnuts.

Interesting that Neopolitan is California's pick. Can't say it's a favorite of mine.

Kathy it says that Almond Joy is CT favorite ice cream.  I have lived in CT most of my life, and I have never heard of Almond Joy Ice Cream.  Go figure.

Chocolate would never be my first choice for ice cream.

My all time favorite flavor is Coffee Oreo. That is what I look for at ice cream stands.

For ice cream at home I only buy dairy free...my favorite brand is So Delicious. It is coconut based. I usually buy their Vanilla and I add pineapple juice and frozen pineapple and banana chunks to it in the Vitamix and create my own flavor.

Hi Kathy, that is so funny because for some reason I was craving some Rocky Road ice cream on Friday.  It was on sale at Kroger(Blue Bell), so we headed there to get some.  Everything was sold out in the ice cream isle.  I wasn't sure what was going on but thankfully I knew they usually had it on the end of the isle when there was a sale.  The good Lord was taking care of me because there was one container of Rocky Road.  I love ice cream, but have been trying to stray away from it lately.  If it is here, I will eat it!  Have a great day!

My in-laws owned an ice cream parlor and my wife loves her ice cream. We have over 25 tubs of the creamy dessert at any given time in our freezer(s). I personally like Vanilla Bean the best, but do like it with mini dark chocolate chips.
