What is your favorite type and/or brand of ice cream or gelato?
Looking for some recommendations.
I like Talenti blood orange gelato.
Talenti makes blood orange [italic]sorbetto[/italic]. It is delicious, though. I like their Caramel Cookie Crunch gelato best, though.
talenit's salted carmel gellato....I could bathe in that
Homemade, so I can control the ingredients.
Alden's for organic.
If I don't care about organic and want a bunch of doodads inside, Ben & Jerry's. Haagen Dazs is a premium ice cream, but generally without interesting chunks of stuff (as my mom calls a cheap marketing ploy to make people think the ice cream is better than it really is). But HD is not organic and not very interesting, so I don't bother.
I don't much like fruity flavors and caramel makes me feel sick.
I like ice creams with a surprise in every bite...so I go with Ben & Jerry's Cow Power.
Until I discovered B&J's I was a Vanilla man and like Haagen Daz Vanilla...but no one's too old to change.
B&J Coffee Heath is yummy too.

Did your mom write Cold Stone Creamery's marketing plan?
I know, R6. Isn't Coldstone the worst ice cream ever?
Have you seen the added sugar content in that stuff? Pre-diabetes sets in 15 minutes after its ingestion.
I rarely get it because of the calories; but when I do I like it from independent ice cream or gelato stores that make it right on the premises (we have a bunch of them here in my city).
I try a lot of differnt ice cream flavors, and I like them. But I alwsys come back to my all-time favorite: vanilla.
Day-Ree Queen Soft-Serve
Fresh & Easy's store brand pistachio gelato is pretty yummy. I like the raspberry sorbet they have at Trader Joe's, too.
R9, you can avoid calories-that-make-you-fat if you make your own. Use full-fat coconut milk from the can (you know about all the research on lipids and why coconut is so good for you, right? Raises metabolism, let alone all the other benefits).
So, coconut milk, mint extract, and either stevia or honey or mix both. Delicious ice cream as often as you like, no harmful effects.

I'd much rather have the real thing every once in a great while than eat that nasty shit every day.
Honest, R14, I wanted ice cream that tasted like ice cream, not anything repulsive. I experimented with some things. The mint extract is key because it tastes just like mint ice cream - it doesn't taste like coconut. You can also put in chocolate shavings or chips to taste just like mint chip ice cream, but I'm too lazy for that (and want to avoid the sugar that is in the chips).
You could also make this with heavy cream, but then you lose the health benefit, all while tasting exactly the same.
I enjoy ice cream and frozen yogurt all the time but I'm not fat. All it takes is the intelligence to eat a single medium scoop of ice cream instead of a huge bowl of ice cream like the obese Americans.
I like Publix own brand - Roadrunner Raspberry, Tiramisu, or Mocha Chip.
One scoop Avocado, one scoop Dark Chocolate....to die for.
Anyone taste the new Haagen Dasz gelatos yet?
That's not ice cream, R13. It's frozen somethingthatcomesoutofahorsesass.
R1, I also really like Talenti's Caramel Cookie Crunch.
Talenti is outrageously good. All of them.
Haagen Daz's Zesty Lemon sorbet. Very refreshing.
I'm with you, OP. That shit is delicious!
Yes, but gelato is just italian for ice cream...
Yes! That Talenti's Caramel Cookie Crunch must be loaded with crack.......
Also! Ben & Jerry's Fudge Brownie Flavor aka "Heaven".
My favorite flavors are ube, green tea, and coconut.
Baskin/Robbins Pralines 'n Cream. Fortunately, there's not a store close enough for me to go there often, or I'd be there a lot. My partner used to love their Winter White Chocolate, which disappeared far too soon. What IS it with that company? How do they stay in business? They teamed up at one point with Dunkin' Donuts, then that fell apart.How come they never got into the supermarkets?
I love sladoled.
Tillamook....especially the Marionberry Pie variety.
The Wild Mountain Blackberry,Udderly Chocolate and Oregon Strawberry are not far behind.
