I don't know about the phenomenon in general but I can certainly vouch for pistachio ice cream by the Chinatown Ice Cream factory in New York, located on Bayard Street in Chinatown, Manhattan.
Great ice cream. Always a line up. Also great chinese flavors. Ethnic roadfood ...
HaaganDazs had just opened up a competing location just before I left New York, but it looks like the Factory was doing just fine.
Heavenly pistachio ice cream. My only suggestion outside of New York aside from B&J, is to check out a Chinese grocery store.
