It’s summer. It’s hot. And I just read Stuart Dunn’s review of a game about ice cream.

Now I want ice cream. (Actually, I want to play that game while I eat ice cream.)

I’m sure I’m not the only one around here who likes ice cream, so let’s dish.

What’s your favorite ice-cream flavor?

When it comes to ice cream, I’m pretty easy to please. Any combination of coffee, chocolate, nuts, caramel and/or marshmallow will do. But in the summer, when strawberries are at their best, you may find me enjoying the ice-cream equivalent of a chocolate-covered strawberry: a hot fudge sundae with fresh strawberry ice cream.

Try it. You won’t regret it.

How do you like your ice cream?

  1. Now blaming you for the massive ice cream craving! It varies, but today I’m gonna go mint chocolate chip. But I can’t tell you the last time I had one! That might change today.

  2. Our family avoids processed sugar, so our favorite ice cream is banana. You just blend frozen banana chunks until they are the consistency of soft serve ice cream. Voila — gluten free, dairy free, preservative free ice cream. 🙂

    Mint chocolate chip marshmallow sundae is my go-to fav. But like you, Barb, I have a summer favorite. There’s a place down the street that sells homemade vanilla, chocolate and sometimes strawberry ice cream. During peach season, they sell peach ice cream. It is a little expensive, but I will most likely treat myself at least once to a scoop of homemade peach ice cream. Yum!
