I was thinking today that I don't see much coffee ice cream available anywhere anymore. Sure, there's "Jamoca" (+ Almond Fudge)and I think Starbuck's makes some exotics, but just plain old coffee ice cream, no.
Has anyone else found this true,or do you get this flavor easily?
Not sure if you a are in NM or NY, but in NY Edy's and Turkey Hill, which are the only store brands available in my area I still buy, both have coffee flavor. My favorite coffee is the flavor available from Penn state Creamery...very good!
If you have one nearby, the coffee ice cream at cold stone creamery is also very good. They also make a coffee milk shake (but call it something else so they can charge more) and that is REALLY good.
