Mine were the pistacio and the coconut. I also liked the peppermint!


Also, I used to (as an adult) get a coffee soda with chocolate ice cream.

    ButterCrunch in a Sugar Cone.

    Burgundy Cherry would be my "fruity" second choice...

    AND Mocha Walnut would be a distant third.

            Pistachio. It's also my favorite color.

                    Mocha Chip- I loved how the chip part was like chocolate shavings - not little chocolate bullets

                        Swiss almond chocolate was always my favorite.

                            And I thought I'd be the first to say "clam roll."

                              Chocolate Mint Chip! (or was it Chocolate Chip Mint?)

                              It was really good, even if it was artificially colored with some kind of green food coloring.

                                      I grew up eating Howard Johnson's ice cream and loved early spoonful. In the early 80s, I discovered blueberry and coconut, two great flavors to eat together. A few days ago I tried Marble Slab Creamery's blueberry. Just like Howard Johnson's.

                                        HoJo had the best ice cream it was really thick and flavorful - I worked at HJ on the NJ Turnpike 1972-73 before Marriott took over. I remember they had 2 different shaped scoops and when u dipped HJ required a bottom fringe on each scoop. The round scoop was .25 cents, the triangle shaped was .35 - i didnt realize it until later on that both scoops held the same liquid matter. Also we didnt have the space for 24 flavors so 12 was it - the one i hate the most was a red peppermint swirl - very sticky!

                                          Coffee, scooped fresh from the HoJo stand in NYC's Penn Station while waiting for the LIRR train.
