How refreshing to read this thread! Although I am trying to lose weight (and even thinking about ice cream doesn't help!), I was delighted to run across flavors I'd never heard of. I can only imagine ginger ice cream as a float made with a bottle of Blenheim Ginger Ale from South Carolina. Now that's almost as good as Ben & Jerry's Coffee Coffee as a float with ice-cold espresso as the adjunct... and coffee milk added (we can't get that in Georgia, so a person would have to make their own).
The University Of Georgia Creamery used to make a run of pistachio every year before Christmas break. I haven't been to their sales room in thirty years, but it's still where it used to be when I was a kid. I'll have to ask if they're going to run any pistachio this year. It was done in a Dairy Science Department class, by the way.
Speaking of pistachio and of Ben & Jerry's, that's another flavor that they do well. I see it every so often. Trouble is, they have to appeal to younger tastes to keep going, apparently.
The ice cream flavor I would love to try is semi-sweet (or bitter) chocolate with coffee and peanut butter (not sweetened). Alas, my purchase of a home ice cream maker will have to wait until I manage to curb my appetite for the likes of livermush breakfasts and the homemade ales at Copper Creek Brewing Company, neither of which would produce a very good ice cream....
