Favourite ice cream

Post by OEJ @ Sat Dec 12, 2009 10:48 pm

Yes I know it's not exactly the height of summer just now but I eat ice cream all year round. Recently I 'discovered' a particular one that has quickly shot to the top of my personal list of favourite flavours.

It's Ben & Jerry's Chocolate Macadamia

Oh yeah, throw in an Ice Cream thread, as if wooden implements and scarves and stuff isn't enough.

Anyway, I like Kelly's Cornish Clotted Cream Ice Cream...

I like chocolate ice cream, in whole two-litre tubs, to be eaten all in one go during hot weather.

There is a tub in the freezer :thumbup:

And some cream, and a half eaten peach cheesecake.

You have a Tesco which is open at 11pm on a Saturday night?

Ours isn't, otherwise I'd probably be eating crisp sandwiches right now.

I wonder if you could make money selling crisp sandwiches. Just like M&S, but instead of proper fillings in sandwiches. Use crisps.

This is OEJ's wife here. A few minutes ago my husband left without a word and drove off at high speed. Is that where he's gone? I'm starting to get worried

Depends whether you are scooping it out of the tub with daft wafers.

No no no, just a big spoon, big enough to fend the kids off with.

No no no again, it is decanted into a bowl, although in admittedly large quantities.

I eat it straight from the tub. No point messing about with a bowl when I'm going to eat the whole lot, and anyway bowls aren't big enough to get the entire contents of the tub in.

If the intention is to eat the entire tub then yes, you're right, but I never do. If I'm on my own and there's only one portion left then I will eat out of the tub.

Another big plus point for Cart D'or is the tubs make excellent containers for bits and pieces in the garage on account of them being see through :)

I think a proper vanilla is underrated




The best ice cream flavour, IMHO, is Strachiatella Gelato

Thing is proper vanilla is hard to find. Most vanilla is shit.

It's not as good as chocolate, anyway, no matter what.
