Everyone seems to like Blue Bunny. I'm not familar with it. I like Turkey Hill and Edy's. Edy's light ice creams are some of the best, if that's a consideration in your planning.

Ben and Jerry's is my absolutely fav. They seem to be more creative with their flavors.

I will second Paul's recommendation of Mayfield. They have some very tasty flavors, Coyote Tracks being first in my heart. Tried some of their Birthday Cake flavor over the weekend. Pretty good!

Breyer's Triple Chocolate and Vanilla Bean for me, nomrally. Another good, albiet, expensive regional ice cream in the El Paso/Las Cruces area is Price's. It is more of a treat for me since a half gallon is 6 dollars. To me, this is the best ice cream I've tasted.

I like most of the Mayfield flavors, although do not care for the peach but the blueberry cream pie and the lemon meringue pie are good, along with coyote tracks and moose tracks and some others. I am eating Blue Bunny spumoni as I type, which is good and I rarely find spumoni, since Kroger does not have it anymore. I found this at one of those grocery stores that you have to look to see what they have once a week kind of thing, and now must go back to see if I can find more of the spumoni. It was $1.00 for a half gallon which is still a real half gallon, not the smaller container that is now so popular.

Love Blue Bunny, can't get it. Schwans has good stuff too. If I was throwing a party, I'd have the Schwans man come by.

For those of you in the West with Ralphs supermarkets, their Ralphs Private Reserve or Lable or Private something or other is an excellent ice cream and a good buy at 2 for 6 bucks.
It leaves anything by Breyers in the dust. The Reeses Peanutbutter Cup, Cherry Parfait, and Cinnamon Cashew are unbelievably good.

Only in 25% of the country, yet 2nd or 3rd in sales, only behind Dreyers/breyers. Best ingredients money can buy, plus their Bannana Pudding half gallon is over 3 lbs, Mayfield close behind at 2.25 lbs, Blue Bunny at 2 lbs, Pet at 1.9 and Edy's at 1.8 lbs. Also one of the few companies that still make a TRUE half gallon(1.89 liters vs. most companies 1.75 liters).Enjoy the social!

I got to agree with you....we love our BlueBell. We live in E. TN and Mayfield and Blue Bunny are everywhere...but the Wally World in Athens has BlueBell and we manage to score at least two flavors each trip....YUM!

If I still lived in central new york, it would be Byrne's all natural but since I don't, it would be Breyers.

I'm from the northeast and there black rasperry is ubiquitous but I can't find it in the south. Does any of the companies sell it down here?

I picked up some Mayfield Caramel Coyote this weekend. It's very good, caramel ice cream with little caramel cups throughout. It melts faster than other Mayfield flavors, I've noticed. Oh well, I'll just eat it faster.

Breyers is tops if you don't want any junk added--just plain high quality ingredients--none of the fillers, puddings, etc., that you get in most commercial brands. Their strawberry is as close to homemade as one can get!

I keep at least two containers of Breyer's strawberry in my freezer always. Agreed as to lack of "funky stuff". Any ice cream with "funky stuff" added remains in grocer's freezer, not mine.

I have heard that Turkey Hill is very good but, we don't get it in Dallas.
So, my (super market) faves are, Breyers, Hagen-Daz and Ben & Jerry's.
But, I usually get gelato from a small local chain, "Paciugo".
They do the VERY BEST gelato with unusual flavors like, Rose, Violet and Lavender vanilla.

Breyer's (or do I mean Dreyer's?)
Hagen Dazs
Blue Bunny


You definately mean Breyers (with a B) :)

But speaking of which, have you complained to Breyers about their going to the cheater containers (replacing the 1/2 gallon size with 1.75)? I have!

Could be Dreyers/Edy's.
Guess that's better than a unilever product now though isn't it.

I'm voting for Hagen Dazs in a grocery store.

I find blue bell to be terribly overrated. Too gummy/unnatural tasting for me.

United Dairy Farmer's
Ben & Jerry's
Hagen Daz
Graeter's
Breyer's

all those have different flavors I like over the others, I don't think I could pick just one over the other though.

'gummy'? wow, first time for everything, definetely the minority there. must had bought a bad one, or flavor, or maybe 'blue bunny'.
try the cookies and cream, it's one the local cities taste test here 4 years in a row, they do a blind test and take mayfield, breyers, blue bell and edy's, scoop into 3 oz cups, and let everyone taste and guess. amazing how many(91%) picked the 'best' one each time, being blue bell.

Hi all..Im brand new to this forum but i MUST correct you (forgot who it was) on one thing...BREYERS IS NOT ALL PURE AND NATURAL AS IT USED TO BE!!! I grew up on Breyers vanilla and cherry vanilla fin the 1950's. Over the years it has changed...since unilever bought it from Kraft in 1993...it went downhill....they now use tara gum...a thickener....why? because they pump the ice cream full of air..I was told %46 air!!!. Breyes is nothing like it used to be....the taste and texture is gone....and its a shame ..it makes me angry and I would really like to see ice cream lovers boycott breyers..untill unilever...A Dutch company....goes back to quality or sells Breyers to someone who care about a quality product not just profits....Sorry for the rant but im really pissed off and i wrote unilever tonight...oh yeah...they sneakily reduced the half gallon container to something like 1.75 litres or something....

I like HAAGEN DAZS myself . You probably would need the quart size for a party. Of course,you could keep quiet and eat all that HAAGEN DAZS for yourself.

About Unilever messing around with American Legacy brands:

I'd really like to see Unilever's American competitors have some fun with Unilever's brands. Run an ad labeled "Our Competitors". Show a picture of some guys drinking Heineken in a farmhouse someplace. Have some wooden shoes in the scene, and some windmills out in the distance. Show an ad for a brothel in Amsterdam posted on the wall.

I must say that I agree with the above post. I also grew up with the "original "
Breyers. It's now, nothing like the Breyer's of yor.

We love the Breyer's Natural Vanilla (with chocolate syrup of course!). I like all different flavors of ice cream but the one we buy most is the Breyer's vanilla.

I'm with ya man!
I noticed a slight change in the labeling last fall (2006) in my area (Indiana) and the addition of the gum. The taste and 'mouth feel' are now completely different. I have boycotted the brand since then. It is a shame. I felt it was the only true ice cream on the market. I have switched to Hagen-das, but it is really a custard and just not the same.
Did Unilever reply?

I love so many different kinds but I'd have to say my favorites are as follows:

Turkey Hill: Party Cake (Vanilla Ice Cream with pieces of cake and blue buttercream frosting swirled in...very sweet..but sooo good)

Ben and Jerry's: Half Baked (Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough swirled with Chocolate Fudge Brownie)

Hershey's (If you can find it): Chocolate

Friendly's: Classic Chocolate and Butter Crunch

For pure, premium ice cream, it is Ben & Jerry's, hands-down, for me. Give me a pint of Cherry Garcia or Phish Food any day. Even the frozen yogurt Cherry Garcia is outstanding (and only 680 calories!). I don't even remember the last time I bought a pint of non-B & J's.

However, a local chain here in the Northeast, Brigham's, makes outstanding vanilla ice cream. If you're going to serve vanilla ice cream w/ cake or apple pie, you gotta make it Brigham's.

John
(Anybody remember the old pints of Howard Johnson's Ice Cream, about 25 years ago? I used to work in a convenience store as a teen, and would down a pint of HoJo's Heavenly Hash on those long lonely Saturday nights in the store. I think I'm still wearing a couple of those pints around my waist)
