It's already out there. Coffee Almond Fudge is my absolute favorite. Should be available at your local grocery store.

a decent vanilla seems to be out of the grasp of the Starbucks in Tampa, they would be better off just screwing people by their standard $2.50 a cup of coffee, they do that real well.

I would love to have Baskin Robbins bring back their Pink Grapefruit Ice. Man , for a summer refresher it was outstanding.
With BR still in mind...give me the Pralines and Cream, and the Jamocha Almond Fudge.

Switching to the Old Howard Johnson's 28 flavors... Buttercrunch was high on my list...and Burgandy Cherry too.

Thrifty Drug Stores (now Rite-Aid) used to do great (and cheap) ice cream cones... canister shaped scoops were very large!! They also had prepacked 1/2 gallons. Their Apricot Mango Sherbet was one of the other great fruity summer coolers.

Many years ago there was a place on Route 9 right here in Plattsburgh (NY) called the Frosty Dairy Bar. They are long, long gone. The building is now occupied by a CPA firm. Their sign lives on in the village of Keeseville about 11 miles further south along Route 9. Unlike the original Frosty place though, they do not have homemade ice cream.

Anyhow, one of the original Frosty Dairy Bar flavors was pineapple ice cream. I don't know as I've seen that anywhere since. While I'll admit that time tends to distort one's memory, the pineapple ice cream was darn good.

I haven't been to a BR in ages and ages. I wonder how much their Jamocha Almond Fudge is similar to the Coffee Almond Fudge that I like from Starbucks? Anyone had both?

Why, when thinking Vanilla ice cream, would you think that Starbuck's would be the definitive place? Starbuck's is well known for the coffee and coffee flavored products. I am sure that there are other threads on this site that debate the value of Starbuck's versus the local mom and pop coffee place, but the reality is that they are clearly doing something right. If you don't want to pay $3.00 for their coffee, then don't.

Mr Mayor,

One of my all time favorites was BR's Daiquiri ice.

Waiting now for the the newly redone local Dunkin Donuts to open as Dunkin Donuts/Baskin Robbins, not for the donuts but for the ice cream!!

At present I am addicted to Dove's "Irresistable Raspberry"

I love BaskinRobins Baseball Nut(usually only avaliable during baseball season).

Thrifty Drug! I used to always get a triple with:
Cookies and Cream on the bottom
Heavenly Hash in the middle
Rainbow Sherbet on top

They would all melt together in a wonderful fruity/creamy combo on a warm day.

That's my pick C&C H&H RS flavor....gimmie a ten gallon to go

The largest size of a plain cup of coffee at Starbucks costs $1.85.

I'd like to see the Turtle Sundae pictured on today's home page sitting in front of me right now I have never been there, but Moomers in Traverse City, MI looks like my kind of place. Other than that, I'd like a better Cherry Garcia. They seem to have cut back on the cherries over the last few years. Maybe my memory serves me poorly, but I don't think Cherry Garcia is as good as it was years ago. Due too the low carb thing I don't eat much ice cream, so when I do, I want it to be great.

Snowy, that Daquiri Ice that ocdreamr mentioned at Baskin-Robbins would be what you're looking for in a "sour."

In the 1960s someone gave us some licorice flavored ice cream from BR. I wonder if they still make it. I didn't like licorice at the time, but I surely liked the ice cream!

Mr Mayor,

Just remembered making a grapefruit sherbet a few years back. My Mom liked to sit on the front porch eating a cone of ice cream in the evening. I took to making my own, in small batches, to try a variety. When I made this she first said "I dont think so" but after I got her to try it she requested it often. It is truely refreshing.

Grapefruit sorbet with mint

1 cup sugar, 1 cup water and 1 cup of fresh mint - combine in pot & bring to a boil. Simmer 5 minutes, remove from heat, cover & letstand 10 minutes. Strain into a bowl & add 2 cups of grapefruit juice (fresh squeezed prefered) can add a couple drops of green food color but be careful just a drop or two. Pout into ice cream freezer & freeze.

Now, that brings a smile. When I'd stop at BR on my way home from flute lessons in Jr High, I always thought I was getting away with something by ordering that one

Read an article in an in-flight magazine about how BR developed and named flavors (not necessarily in that order). It talked about "Mississppi Mud" - named first, flavor developed to match. Apparently a VERY chocolate ice cream. I'd like to try that one!

Hubby gets a kick out of ordering a double scoop of BR's Baseball Nut and Quarterback Crunch. Only available a short few weeks each year when the seasons overlap.

Baskin Robbins in February had a vanilla ice cream with raspberry and chocolate raspberry candies and white chocolate that was my ulitmate favorite. It's been so long I can't recall the name. However...as to what I would like: pecan pie ice cream.....a friend thought of that years ago and it always stuck in my head. I've never seen it even in this age of mix-mosh flavors...

I believe it was Blue Bell that had this for a while as a featured flavor about 15 years ago: bits of pie crust, a caramel ribbon and toasted pecans in a butter pecan ice cream. It was quite nice.

An ice cream shop here that has gone out of business had Cantaloupe ice cream, that was pretty yummy. My next thought was Root Beer Float. I see they are both on the Ben and Jerry's discontinued flavors list so I guess I'm not very original. :-) Maybe Blackberry Crisp? Vanilla with whole blackberries and chunks of crispy oatmeal/butter/brown sugar topping. That's probably already been done too.

When I was a kid, the Baskin Robbins in Hyde Park had something called Red Apple Jack for a short time. I believe it was a sherbet. I've been waiting for it's return ever since.

The current Feature Flavor of Prairie Farms ice cream is Pineapple Upside Down Cake. The description from the box is "pineapple upside down cake ice cream blended with pound cake pieces and a brown sugar pineapple swirl". It is very tasty, but also very sweet!

Regarding Starbucks, there are a few things that you should be aware of. Professional coffee tasters usually refer to the brand as "Charbucks", due to the burned taste that results from over-roasting the beans. If someone likes that taste, that is fine, but any opinion that I have ever seen from the true coffee experts is one of "poor" for Starbucks. In a recent issue of Consumer Reports, their sensory experts, who did a series of blind taste tests, rated Starbucks at the bottom of their list.

Also--the price of a cup of coffee varies considerably from one Starbucks to another. While you can get a cup occasionally for as "little" as $1.85, it is not unusual to see a charge of around $3.00 for the "tall" (that, of course, is the small size) coffee at some locations.

While the distribution may vary from one area of the country to another, I can tell you that Starbucks Ice Cream has been available in NJ for quite some time. I can't give you an exact figure, but I would guess that I have seen it in the grocery store for over a year.

Oh--and as to what flavor of ice cream I would like to see, this is one that I believe I had years ago at Baskin-Robbins. Can anyone tell me if their Blueberry Cheese Cake flavor still exists?

When B&R first came to town, one of their flavors was called Jack Lemon (not sure if they spelled it the same as one of my all time favorite actors). I think it may have been seasonal but it was so creamy and lemony. I've not seen it in years and suspect it wasn't popular enough to sustain it. Another favorite I'd like to see again is plain coconut ice cream (another of B&R's flavors). All I've seen there now is Nutty Coconut. It has so many nuts, the coconut flavor seems insignificant. Bring back the good old flavors, simple and not so complex!

A flavor I've not seen in hard ice cream would be something we used to know as "malted milk". Used to get it in a waxed paper dixie cup with a flat wooden spoon to dip out of the cup. It was a lot like like a Wendy's frosty but with a much smoother texture and definate malt in the mix! I've give anything to get my hands on that flavor one more time again!

The Thrifty/Rite Aids Drug Stores had a flavor called Chocolate Malted Krunch that was a standard for years, It may still be on the flavor list. It had broken-up pieces of the Malt Ball candy spread thru-out the chocolate malt ice cream.

Barney,
I believe Coldstone Creamery has a coconut ice cream - and, of course, you can have them mix in even more coconut.

Tedbear, there are a few things that you should be aware of. Foremost among these is that you sound like a condescending little snot here. We're all aware of what "professional coffee tasters" think of Starbucks, and many of us -- including myself -- agree that their full city roasts are burnt. (The more recent "Lightnote" roasts, however, are quite nice, though not a patch on a good George Howell roast from Terroir, naturally.) You're not imparting new information here.

Furthermore, what is this "occasionally" and "at some locations" jive? Sounds like someone talking out of a part of his anatomy through one one is not supposed to talk. Definite cites, please, not hearsay. Tell me these locations where a small cup of brewed coffee -- which is what we're discussing here, not the foofy espresso drinks -- costs $3. Show me pictures of the menus. Otherwise, I have to take you at your word. All I know is that I have never spent more than $1.85 for the largest size of BREWED COFFEE -- again, that's what we're talking about here, simple brewed coffee -- at a Starbucks, and I've been in a lotta Starbucks in a lotta places.

And finally, one thing you're gonna learn quickly about Roadfooders is that we don't give a rusty g*****n about the opinions of any "experts" or "professional tasters" except those of other Roadfooders, and even then, everybody's got people they tune out immediately. Such as the 237 people who are now thinking, "Good god, Lucky's on about Starbucks again."

Sorry, folks. Ongoing family medical drama, today spiced with extra bureaucratic bungling. (Hint for any medical professionals: take a second to call the family's house and see if the promised hospital bed, wheelchair and commode have actually been delivered before you just dump your patient at home.) So when Tedbear kicked off the same anti-Starbucks rant taht gets aired out here regularly, it seemed like a good idea at the time.

Not that I take back a word of it or anything: I totally don't buy his weakly-supported claim that there are Starbucks out there where $3 only gets you a small brewed coffee, because if there were, wildly-expensive downtown Boston would be that place, and it's not.

Seriously, what I find amusing about my apparent role as Defender of Starbucks is that I actually can't stand their coffee, other than the aforementioned Lightnote Blends. The only reason I go to Starbucks at all is that there's one in my neighborhood supermarket that's a handy place to either meet my wife on her way home from work or grab a headache-avoidance cup on my way to our streetcar stop if I didn't have time to have some home-brewed first. Personally, gimme an extra-large cream no sugar from Dunkin Donuts if we're talking about boughten coffee at all.

Topic: I'd love to see Blue Bell return Chocolate Decadence to its flavor lineup. It was two kinds of chocolate ice cream, a fudge ripple, jimmies and FROZEN WHIPPED CREAM! You have no idea how good that was. Not that it would do any good for me, being up here in New England, but I'd be happy just knowing that it existed again.

My wife still forlornly scans the Ben and Jerry's cases, hoping against hope that someday Holy Cannoli will come back.

Key Lime ice cream. I had a key lime milkshake (well, a frappe, strictly speaking) this weekend at a farm stand outside of the Everglades (near Florida City/Homestead) called Robert is Here and it was fabulous. As in one of the best things I ever ate/drank.

Blue Bell makes a Key Lime Pie flavor. For someone who doesn't eat ice cream it was very good, right down to the pieces of graham cracker crust.

I miss Blue Bell so. Is there anything they won't turn into an ice cream flavor?

New for 2005: Macaroni and cheese! Spinach! Monkey! Paint!

Can I assume your wife has filled out the form requesting Holy Cannoli back? It is here, if she has not: http://www.benjerry.com/our_products/flavor_graveyard/departed_flavors.cfm

Reminds me of a childhood Roadfood story but I'll put it in this thread for now... Dad and my sister and I drove cross-country in 1973 (Oregon to New Hampshire) in an orange VW squareback. We stopped regularly at Baskin & Robbins, which I was obsessed with at that age (9) - so many flavors! Every time, he asked the person behind the counter, in a very LOUD voice , whether they had any chili con carne ice cream (he had read somewhere that they were test-marketing it).

Sorry, folks. Ongoing family medical drama, today spiced with extra bureaucratic bungling. (Hint for any medical professionals: take a second to call the family's house and see if the promised hospital bed, wheelchair and commode have actually been delivered before you just dump your patient at home.) So when Tedbear kicked off the same anti-Starbucks rant taht gets aired out here regularly, it seemed like a good idea at the time.

Not that I take back a word of it or anything: I totally don't buy his weakly-supported claim that there are Starbucks out there where $3 only gets you a small brewed coffee, because if there were, wildly-expensive downtown Boston would be that place, and it's not.

Seriously, what I find amusing about my apparent role as Defender of Starbucks is that I actually can't stand their coffee, other than the aforementioned Lightnote Blends. The only reason I go to Starbucks at all is that there's one in my neighborhood supermarket that's a handy place to either meet my wife on her way home from work or grab a headache-avoidance cup on my way to our streetcar stop if I didn't have time to have some home-brewed first. Personally, gimme an extra-large cream no sugar from Dunkin Donuts if we're talking about boughten coffee at all.

Topic: I'd love to see Blue Bell return Chocolate Decadence to its flavor lineup. It was two kinds of chocolate ice cream, a fudge ripple, jimmies and FROZEN WHIPPED CREAM! You have no idea how good that was. Not that it would do any good for me, being up here in New England, but I'd be happy just knowing that it existed again.

My wife still forlornly scans the Ben and Jerry's cases, hoping against hope that someday Holy Cannoli will come back.

No need for sorry. I was applauding. Of course, I won't go near a Starbucks, myself -- or any other place that pours coffee into cardboard cups and charges an arm and a leg.

About 20 years ago, Hood sold a Cherry Amaretto sherbet. I loved it, but I think I was the only person who ever bought it. I wish that would come back.

A few years ago, I went with the family to an ice cream place on Cape Cod that had lemon meringue ice cream. Oh, God, that was good. The ice cream was very light and fluffy, if you can imagine that, with bits of lemon-flavored stuff (lemon pie filling, maybe). Whatever it was, it was goooo-oood.

Jimmies are known in some areas as Chocolate Sprinkles...little bits of semi-sweet or dark chocolate that are " Sprinkled on" ice cream... or sometimes one can roll or dip a cone into the Sprinkles. They make Rainbow colored Sprinkles also, but they aren't near as good as the chocolate.

Most every flavor that is offered in ice cream in recent times involves chocolate chips, chocolate chunks, chocolate anything. I truly would love to purchase an ice cream cone such as black raspberry without chunks of chocolate. I like chocolate, but does it have to be in every flavor offered?

Other than my aforementioned BLACK FOREST CAKE ICECREAM
I remember getting a drink at (I believe) TGIFridays called the VELVET HAMMER -- Was it good! The base ingredient was vanilla icecream with rum, and almond flavored liqueor - and I don't know what else. I could have drank them until I slipped off my seat.. much to my dismay I never did have that many.

What and icecream flavor that would be..

Jofie and Snowy - I wish you lived here in PA. There is a dairy with attached store about 15 minutes from my house called Crystal Springs that makes their own ice cream for cones or takeout in delicious unexotic flavors and black raspberry is one of their best. It's a beautiful deep lavender color with no artificial colors to make it that way.

I lived here for almost 15 years before I discovered the place. They also sell flavored milks in their dairy case, made from their own berry syrup they make in the summer - strawberry and black raspberry in addition to chocolate.

I enjoyed a half-gallon....well at least 56 oz.. of a double rich strawberry ice cream this past week. We thawed a couple of quarts of last seasons berries to dump all over it. Janet is not a strawberry ice cream fan, so it was all MINE. Y U M !!

I have seen green tea ice cream, but have not yet tried it. A ginger ice cream would be interesting too. Maybe some dessert ice creams like Rusty Nail (flavor of scotch and Drambuie) or Grand Marnier ice cream. Technical dilemma, how do you get alcohol to freeze when it is in ice cream.

One flavor I like is called Panda Paws, vanilla ice cream with chunks of fudge and minature Reeses peanut butter cups in it.

I love Baskin Robbins, but they closed all of the BR ion South Bend-Mishawaka-Elkhart Indiana Area. "HERE COMES THE JUDGE" was my favorite!!

Anyone know if anybody makes a chocolate butter pecan ice cream?

Ruby, can I assume this is the Crystal Springs, listed in the Allentown telephone book as in Scchnecksville? If so we will stop in next time we are traveling up 309.

Our favorite for black Raspberry is Premise Maid, a candy and Ice Cream shop located along Route 222, Southwest of Allentown Pa between Breingsville and Maxatawney. I beleive the Black Raspberry is seasonal, in the summer, and possibly early fall. Premise Maid has the best ice cream I've found in the Lehigh Valley. I really like their butter pecan (one of my standby flavors. They also have excellant chocolate and peanut butter flavors, including I believe, one with Tastykake candy cakes mixed in. (I'm holding out for a Butterscotch Krimpet Ice cream which I have yet to find)

I'd be happy to see about ANY flavor of ice cream right now. Our local ice cream place, Newberry's, is closed for the winter. They're not very consistent on when they re-open, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed for Valentine's Day. : ) They make a killer caramel praline ice cream.

They put funny sayings on their sign sometimes -- my favorite is "I get the shakes when I can't get a malt."

Hee-hee....
