Dairy Tribute: Readers Share Their Favorite Ice Cream Flavors

We asked readers on Facebook “What’s your favorite kind of ice cream?” And tell us the story of your choice. Some answers:

• Coty Wheeler: mint chocolate chips. My daughter loves it and she makes the rules.

• Mikayla Mountjoy: Tumbleweed Ice Cream mint or lemon thin cookie. He makes the ice cream from scratch and you can taste the difference. It’s so incredibly good. My boyfriend absolutely loves the hot chocolate ice cream from Sweetwaters at Landalls for the same reason.

• Shelley Lewis Winn: Black walnut, when I can find it. Reminds me of Iowa and fresh black walnuts.

• Raymond Atchley: Soft vanilla sold at The Twin Cronies on Commerce Way in Clovis. It is creamy and has a unique texture of ice crystals, which gives ice cream a firmer consistency and mouthfeel. It’s the best. Unless compared to my late mother’s hand-cranked ice cream product.

• Geraldine Small: Buttered pecans, because the grandkids don’t like it.

• Sapphyre Montano: Mine is an exclusive Baskin Robbins baseball nut. When I was a kid, I remember having this all the time. Then, growing up, I could never find it unless I went to a Baskin Robbins. In there, I fell for the very delicious and never contradicted flavor of the strawberry. So, from around 22 until now, strawberry has been my favorite flavor. But just to let you in on a secret, if you go to Albertsons, you can now find a small container of baseball nuts, which is vanilla ice cream with a raspberry swirl and has huge amounts of cashews in it. . MMMMM so delicious. Glad to have found it.

• Eve Bergland: Ben and Jerry’s pecans resist, because social justice tastes good.

• Dorothy Robinson: Soft vanilla dipped in chocolate. When I was little, my aunt and uncle came to see my grandparents. Uncle Charlie always took us to Dairy Queen and asked, “What kind of ice cream do you want?” I always said: “A dirty bath!” He was laughing and knew exactly what I meant. He told the story every time we got together. A family joke until his death at the age of 99.

• Casey Peacock: vanilla ice cream with Nestlé Quick chocolate powder sprinkled on top. My father and I used to eat it in the evening after supper.

• Janie Palubin: Vanilla. Before we only had Neapolitan and I didn’t like chocolate or strawberry.

• Virginia Herrera: Just a simple vanilla ice cream cone from McDonalds or Foxy’s Drive-In. My mom (now my angel since April 2020) and I always used to pick some up and cruise around town or go to the park and enjoy our ice cream cones. We loved our time together. Oh how I miss my queen!
