Kroger just started carrying it here.
Pick up a pint of Graeter's and a pint of another brand and feel the difference in weight.
Very good ice cream.

I think Bluebell just adds an extra cup of sugar per ½ gallon so people think it's richer or something.
No, it's overly "suh-weeeet!"

Since that is no longer available, I buy Bluebell peach when it's available or Haagen Dazs strawberry.

I love Hood, R3. My favourite Hood is Rhode Island Coffee with truffle lighthouses. For a commercial brand, it's not bad.
I love the ice cream at Kimball Farm in New Hampshire - particularly the chocolate raspberry swirl and the pralines and cream. Also the mocha and coffee flavours are good, too.

Take my word on it, Graeter's in the supermarket is not nearly as good as the stuff in their stores. And there's a much bigger variety of flavors there, too. My favorite reason for visiting my family in Ohio.

No sugar added is the only ice cream I buy anymore. Vanilla only. I used to love Baskin Robbins pralines and cream. Otherwise I have always preferred vanilla ice cream or other flavored.

I hate to credit the mighty and powerful Starbuck's, however their coffee ice cream is the best I've ever tasted and I've tried them all.
Alas, they no longer produce "Coffee Almond Fudge"-coffee ice cream with ribbons of fudge and, for good measure, salted chocolate covered almonds folded in.
That stuff should have been illegal to produce, possess and distribute. Many was the time I polished off an entire pint in one sitting.

I sometimes add stuff, like cinnamon or toffee sauce.
As a kid I also liked Baskin Robbin's Rocky Rd. English Toffee and Bubble Gum flavor.
I like Ben & Jerry's when I go the the movies, but their stuff is too full of bits and pieces.

As far as I know, outside of New Orleans the ice cream is only sold in Brookshires grocery stores, but it's so good it's bound to go national.

Homemade, but I hardly ever do that anymore. I use David Lebovitz' book when I do. His Salted Butter Caramel is divine (see link).
I avoid ice cream with guar gum, carageenan, taro gum, and other stabilizers, which means I pretty much eat Haagen-Dazs when I buy ice cream at the store.
I like Starbucks' flavors, but these additives ruin the texture by about the tenth spoonful. There are a few I like by Ben & Jerry's (Boston Cream Pie), and they somehow, sometimes, manage to make ice cream with additives that doesn't suck, but I haven't liked a new flavor in a long time.
Lately, Haagen-Dazs has some great new flavors; two gelati: salted caramel and straciatella, which is vanilla laced with chocolate (shavings?). Just delicious. And I bought a "special edition" flavor yesterday, salted caramel truffle ice cream.
H-D has also started packaging Pralines & Cream in their 14 oz. "pints" for the first time--at least, the first time anywhere I've lived.
I avoid store brands, Edy's (though I like their frozen fruit bars, Breyer's, Graeter's, and ESPECIALLY Jeni's. $10 per pint and it doesn't taste like anything special at all. And she uses cornstarch as a thickener. I pray for the imminent demise of her company.

I don't buy ice cream to keep in the house anymore, I have no self control. If I want ice cream I get in the car and go to a locally owned place for a couple of scoops (though there is an Italian bakery just around the corner from me that makes amazing gelato, I have to block it out of my mind...more than once in the summer my dinner is two scoops of gelato on brichoe, which is the way it's often served in Sicily)
