      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

                                I know that flavor was made back in the 70's. Sure was good.

                                    How about a nice mango, guava, and/or papaya "creme" style; maybe with bits of fruit?

                                        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.

                                                    BR's Daiquiri ice.

                                                    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.
