Default Best kind of ice cream?

What brands do you recommend? We live in the west, and we don't have the the famous Blue Bell ice cream that I hear so much about.

Also---what is your favorite flavor? I need something wonderful. I need some good ol' ice cream advice.

We have friends who are coming to visit for 4-5 days. The friends both are huge ice cream lovers.

Edy's carmel delight very good and smooth. Sealtest and Pet are both good. I don't know if you have Kroger stores in that part of the country or not but Kroger store brand is very good. I haven't seen any bad ice cream , though some brands are better than others. I love ice cream about any flavor. LOL

Blue Bunny is good. I love all flavors if nuts are involved. But you can't go wrong with vanilla. Its a favorite for most. I get that opinion from working at icecream parlors when I was young.

Can you get Tillamook ice cream? It's a dairy company here in Oregon. They make the best cheese, yogurt and ice cream.

I also make my own with my Kitchenaid stand mixer ice cream attachment.

If it is available in your area - Tillamook Ice Cream is the BEST; so creamy and rich tasting. We love the Udderly Chocolate flavor (white and milk chocolate) and French Vanilla with sauce or berries is always nice. Yes - I grew up in Oregon and had been able to get Tillamook almost anywhere so it was a huge disappointment when we moved to the Phoenix area 7.5 years ago and it was not available here. My husband and I did a happy dance a couple years ago when Tillamook was available in the Albertsons and Fry's (Kroeger) Grocery Stores in this area.

If you have a RiteAide drug store near you, they usually sell Thrifty Ice Cream. Years ago there was a Thrifty Drug Store chain and they sold ice cream cones and a lot of people I know thought it was better than Baskin Robbins. It was certainly not as expensive and my daughters loved it. They had a few flavors we really liked. They also sell it by the quart - but I have not had it for quite a few years now.

My daughters swear by Cold Stone, but it is too rich for me. For me the best Dairy Queen, it is what I grew up on.

I love icecream! Not a brand snob either tho we have Prairie Farms here...which I love. Just grab a brand and dont over-think it. My fav flavor....is...vanilla!
Choc chip mint is a contender as is Peppermint...as in the candy-cane. Oh, ..any flavor!

As long as it's ice cream, how can you go wrong?! I like the varieties with some kind of chocolate chunks in it. Last Christmas there was the suggestion of peppermint ice cream with hot fudge topping. Now that was good!!! My son makes home made strawberry and adds broken graham cracker pie crust to the mix. Excellent.
