    I don't even know if it's around any longer, but when younger I used to love Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream, especially one made by a local grocery store. Maybe I should have said that in my interview and I might have ended up in a different line of work.

    I know there was a brand that used mini chips like the morsels, because I've had it, but I can't remember the brand to be sure but it may have been Friendly's.

    I have seen Strawberry Chesecake before but I don't recall what brand.

    I have eaten Ben & Jerrys Key Lime Pie flavor which is really great, especially if you like key lime pie...

    My favorite chocolate chip was Ben & Jerry's Vanilla Chocolate Chunk. No puny chips in there, just slabs of semi-sweet dark chocolate in creamy vanilla ice cream. In some bites, it seemed like there were more chunks than ice cream.

    Unfortunately it's no longer sold in stores, and I'm not sure you can even get it in the scoop shops. Though I think Mint Chocolate Chunk is still available.

    I absolutely loved a Haagen-Dazs one, Peanut Butter & Vanilla, which, as far as I can tell, hasn't been available for years.

    Most of the "chocolate chip" ice cream I see is more "chocolate shavings". It just doesn't work.

    Edy's is like shavings. Breyers still has chips I believe.

    This is similar to Peanut Butter (vanilla), most brands seem to carry peanut butter cup. I really just like peanut butter and vanilla ice cream...

    Yeah. I went through a Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough phase once (back when I was younger and ate a fair amount of ice cream).

    And I got really pissed when the chocolate chips were in the ice cream itself (alongside the gobs of cookie dough) rather than actually in the cookie dough itself. Uh, it makes a difference! :D

    I went ice cream shopping after work yesterday and bought some Ben & Jerrys Boston Cream Pie and another flavor since it was on sale and noticed that Ben & Jerrys has a Strawberry Cheesecake flavor.......

    Did not see any Key Lime Pie though..

    Boston Cream Pie sounds delicious. Haven't had a Strawberry Cheesecake ice cream in over 20 years. Maybe time to re-awaken an old habit.

    My favorite ice cream is Braum's chocolate, but their distribution is quite limited, being mostly in Oklahoma and north Texas. I'm also very partial to Andy's Frozen Custard, but it's also at very limited locations centered around Missouri.---------------

    Does Breyer's still make actual ice cream, or just ice cream-like "dairy dessert?"

    I made a negative comment about Breyer's way back in the thread, but then I had some and found it wasn't nearly deserving of that. The vanilla I had was at least made with the "real" ingredients -- cream, milk, etc. -- and it doesn't immediately taste like a really high end vanilla, but it's pretty decent stuff and I could eat a pint or so of it at a sitting. In fact, I rather wish that sitting were happening right now.

    Oh, Breyer's ice cream-like "dairy dessert" is OK; I was just wondering if they actually still make a product labeled "ice cream." :)

    Isn't Breyer's the "all natural" brand? I think all of their products qualify as ice cream.

    You may be thinking of Dreyer's (a.k.a. Edy's). They make a bunch of fakeout "dairy desserts."

    No, if you look at Breyer's packaging, most (if not all) of it doesn't say "ice cream" anywhere.

    We have Edy's around here -- not sure I've ever seen Dreyer's on the shelf.

    Ya know, I've never really seen Blue Bell ice cream sold locally in the northeast. I have tried some while I was in Silverthorne, CO at the tail end of my bike tour but haven't seen it elsewhere. I enjoyed the cone I got but didn't know they were available in stores until I saw the I.C. Informants reviews...

    We have Blue Bell in supermarkets in South Florida. They even have an old-school Country & Western jingle on the radio!
