We all scream for ice cream

Actually, I don't scream. I get my spoon into position. Favourites:

Vanilla Gelato
Not an ice cream, but it's my blog and I'll count it if I want to.

Haagen Dasz Vanilla Swiss Almond
Fun Fact: If you're living in an el-cheapo apartment with a tepid freezer, the standard tub is small enough to eat at one sitting. As is the second you walk back to the store for. If you move to a better apartment, the protein and dairy make it an acceptable substitute for breakfast. Assuming your metabolism looks like a rabbit in motion.

Baskin-Robbins Mint Chocolate Chip and regular Chocolate Chip and for milkshakes, Gold Medal Ribbon
Fun Fact: When my parents moved us to a new town they successfully bribed me out of throwing any more tantrums about it by pointing out that unlike the old one, the new town had a Baskin-Robbins.

Orange Sherbet
Again, not an ice cream.
Fun Fact: I used to get this with Bob Walsh at Christie's Dairy, either poured into a plastic cone with a giant gumball in the bottom, or molded over a stick that had a pirate-related scene molded onto that. We also used to get popsicles there molded over a plastic chainlike stick you could assemble into structures if you collected enough of them. And boy, did we collect enough.

The gumball always disintegrated upon chewing, but the thrill of the gumball outweighed the quality, or lack thereof.

I loved how the colour dye from the gumball swirled into the melting sherbet...
