Schwanns has limited addition flavors, which are usually phenominal. Just when you get hooked, they change.
Right now, my favorite is....Caramel Cashew! Wow is it awesome!
A pint is a single serving size.......right?:

It's It.

and Mitchells. Technically not Ice Cream but they make a killer Mango Sorbet.

The rest of the Mitchells line is really good.

Yup and a 750Ml bottle of Scotch is also a single serving.

Mint Chocolate Chip is also one of my favorite flavors.

Boy, 2 blast from the past in 2 days (first was Phil's Greek Peak). Tks tief!

This still ranks #1 in my palate, followed by World Class Chocolate from Baskin R.

OMG-- It's It! We lived in the city of SF for about seven years, and once my husband discovered It's It, we always had a big stash filling up, oh, say a quarter of the freezer. Know of any services that ship them in dry ice or something? He'd KILL for one for Father's Day.

If anyone's in CO and hasn't tried the new, local-to-boulder Bliss ice cream, you should. She's got some great flavors (chocolate-based chocolate mint chip, lemon blueberry, a really simple, intense coffee), and the texture is divine. Smooth and really, really creamy.

Mmmmmm. Now I want ice cream for breakfast. :

Phil...I consider myself a B&J amateur, very amateur, afficiennado. Just had a cone of my new fav flavor, Coffee BuzzBuzzBuzz last night at the local B&J shop. I even applied for a job as a tour guide at the factory in Waterbury a few years ago.

"factory seconds" are actually the same ice cream that you buy at a shop or in the store. The only thing diferent is the weight. When flavors are changed over you get pints that are ever so slightly underweight. The ice cream is the same whether it's at the bottom or the top of the vat. It's all good.

Did you know every B&J employee used to get 4 free pints for everyday worked? I say used to cause when B&J sold out I lost interest in the business history side of the story not sure what perks they now get. The annual B&J One World One Heart free concert at Sugarbush is no more which is a major bummer. I volunterred at 5 of them.

Here in Maine there are many small ice cream companies and there are ice cream shops everywhere and their ice ream is great but nothing is better than a genuine Vermont Maple Creemee. If you are not used to alot of fat in your diet you might want to stay away from this one...:lol:

My wife did her masters thesis on B&J's corperate responcability. It was very interesting.

If she did it before B&J sold out to Unilever she hopefully found that Ben &Jerry were one of the pioneers of showing the business world that you could be green, become part of the local community and be globally socially responsible and not only succeed but use those ideals as a vehicle to financial success instead of an obstacle to the bottom line. It turned out to be the ultimate marketing strategy but I think that part of it was by accident and a total surprise it could get that big.

When Unilever bought the company they proclaimed that nothing would change....right! When they stopped doing the free concerts at the Bush they tried to produce another event to replace it. It was a festival slated for the same area as the original Woodstock in New York, tickets were $35 and admittingly the lineup was pretty impressive. They ended up not selling very many tickets and cancelled it.

Do they still sell those for like $0.50/pint at the gas station in South Waterbury Center??? Haven't been to Stowe in over fifteen years.

Yes, she did write it before the buyout, in the late 80's. Even then, B&J realized that they had to get away from the 4:1 salary ratio, they just couldn't find someoen who was willing (and qualified) to run the company.

I went to Italy this Summer and had the real deal gelato many times, but surprisingly my favorite flavor was mint chocolate chip...mmmmm, my favorite ice cream flavor is anything from Ben and Jerry's.

I LOVE ice cream and Gelato. We're finally getting a Cold Stone Creamery here in NH ! One just opened, or is soon to open, in Nashua. French Vanilla with roasted almonds and chocolate chips mixed in. Yum ! And then there's Ben & Jerry's -- a "must stop" whenever we go to Stowe. Ahhh, Brownie Batter - great stuff. In Boston, there's JP Licks and Emack & Bolio's. Years ago, there was Steve's, where I first encountered "mix-ins". As for Gelato, there's a place called Emiliana's in Derry, NH that makes there own Gelato. I like to get a scoop of Chocolate-Raspberry and a scoop of Coconut. There's also Joey's Gelateria in Quincy Market in Boston.

hmmm...I'm hungry...
