Small Talk Six: All About Ice Cream

I haven't participated in Small Talk Six for a while, because the topics haven't really fit. But this week the topic is "6 flavors or types of ice cream that you love or hate" ... and I'm sure I can write about that! These are all flavors I love!
  1. Anything chocolate. Let's just get that one out of the way, because it's obvious!
  2. Banana or banana fudge. It has to be creamy and smooth, not icy. We once went to a place that specialized in banana soft-serve, and it was amazing. That shop, I'm sad to say, has been replaced by a Walgreens. (Nothing against Walgreens, but this was banana ice cream!)
  3. Raspberry. We know an ice cream shop that has raspberry soft-serve. They'll swirl it with vanilla, if you like. I wish they could swirl raspberry with chocolate, but the raspberry itself is wonderful. Turkey Hill black raspberry ice cream, from the supermarket, is pretty good, too.
  4. Mint--but it can't be green. This is my son's contribution to the list. He likes mint chocolate chip, but he'd like it just as much without the chips.
  5. Coffee. It has to be creamy; Philadelphia-style just won't do. We don't purchase this often because no one else in my family really cares for it.
  6. Coconut or coconut fudge. We don't have this often, either, because it's not widely available. But it's really delicious!

What are your favorite flavors of ice cream? Leave a comment here or join in the fun at Small Talk Six by clicking on the logo at the top of this post.

By the way, I happened to catch a TV segment last night (on Food Network, maybe) about a place called eCreamery. You can choose your flavor of ice cream and your mix-ins; they'll make the ice cream and ship it to you. It's not cheap, but they have some interesting choices for flavors (e.g., chipotle, lavender) and mix-ins (e.g., thyme, bacon) as well as familiar favorites. They offer a non-dairy sorbetto base, as well as gelato and ice cream bases. And you can name your flavor and choose from three designs of packaging. Looks like fun!

  6. I've never heard of banana ice cream! Interesting. I could see it being good with chocolate.

    Around Christmas time out here (SoCal) the stores carry a Peppermint ice cream that is to die for. So yum and not green!
