Ice Cream Thread
« on: July 29, 2020, 01:50:25 PM »
Do we have an ice cream thread? If not, we should. So here it is...

I had my first Betty Rae's experience over the weekend and I plan on visiting there every time I'm in KC now that I have discovered its greatness. I went because I wanted to try the Joe's KC Burnt Ends BBQ flavor while they have it. It sounded super weird but I ordered a cup of it and devoured it in minutes. Next time I go back I want to try the Apricot Goat Cheese flavor.

Last night I made a quick gas station run to grab some tortilla chips to try a habanero salsa @jmlynch1 made and I thought what could go better with some burn your beehive salsa than a pint of Ben & Jerry's? Snagged some Tonight Dough and crushed that pint after my bag of Tostitos Scoops.

I think homemade vanilla is my favorite

Burnt ends ice cream sounds equal parts stupid and gross

I know but it was kind of good! They make a caramel out of Joe's BBQ Sauce and swirl it in vanilla ice cream with candied burnt ends. Obviously not something I would want everyday but I thought they did a pretty good job pulling it off in spite of it being so weird/stupid/gross.

As I've gotten older, I have a growing appreciation of the subtle complexity of vanilla. It really is delightful.

My God, I love ice cream.

First of all I'm a big fan of Ben and Jerry's the company, the factory in Vermont is awesome. When you go to a Ben and Jerry's in the northeast they sell a 20 scoop sundae called The Vermonster which is fantastic. All that being said, I hate the ice cream they sell in stores, it's crap.

Blue Bell is the best large production ice cream in the country, I'm happy they are back in Kansas after the mass murder thing.

Ashby's out of Michigan is also fantastic.

Blue Bunny here in Iowa is aight, pretty basic they have some great flavors like Fudge Almond and Cherry Chocolate.

The most underrated ice cream and flavor is right there in good ol' Kansas City. Belmonte makes the best mass produced Spumoni. Of course if you can get some locally made spumoni that would be the best ice cream you can find.



Baskin Robbins is meh.

One more thing. Call Hall is very good, as is every on campus creamery across the country, I've ever had. Purple Pride is their best flavor :lick: they gotta ditch those shite paper cartons though, the cream doesn't keep well in those.

I just want to take a minute to say thank you and that this is the kind of content I craved when I made this page.

Braum's exists for their ice cream. I do wish they'd increase their delivery radius and open some stores out east. Springfield is a heck of a drive for a peanut butter fudge sundae or a two scoop waffle cone with Rocky Road and Peanut Butter Cup.

Blue Bell ice cream is definitely my favorite grocery store ice cream, and it's not even close.  The quality of every flavor blows the others away.

Welp, I’m getting some “iced cream” today now for sure!

Typical go to is Braum’s peppermint or mint chip.
If there was a gif of nicname thwarting the attempted-flag-taker and then gesturing him to suck it, followed by motioning for all of Hilton Shelter to boo him louder, it'd be better than that auburn gif.

My love of Braum's is well documented, however Braum's popularity is strictly because of where they are located. There are very few legit hard pack ice cream shops in the plains and that helps them because their ice cream is otherwise mediocre. Braum's would struggle in places that have a proliferation of ice cream shops as their food is also mediocre. Their grocery store is fantastic.

There is an Oberweis Ice Cream and Dairy Store just down the street from my place, but I try not to go very often. It is very good. A long time local Illinois dairy that has a bunch of stores in the Chicagoland area.

It would be cool if they put Braum's stores in food deserts.

Could well be the nostalgia. Plenty of great childhood memories with family long gone at Braum's.

Tillamook is the best grocery store ice cream out west.  Haven’t had Blue Bell in years to compare but Tillamook could be a strong challenger.

MIR nailed it with campus creameries. Love them. There’s an ice cream truck out here called Udder Rivals that sells both Utah State and BYU ice cream. Haven’t seen them in awhile; hopefully not a COVID casualty.  There’s a small town creamery on I-15 in central Utah that makes makes fantastic ice cream.  It’s often packed with the entire Wasatch front stopping by on the way to and from St George. It’s worth waiting in line for.
