    I love many many flavors and brands of vegan ice cream, but my favorite go-to flavor is So Delicious Purely Decadent Peanut Butter Zig Zag. The dark chocolate and swirly chunks of peanut butter cream are amazing. Straight out of the container is way too easy to do, but in a cone is the best!

  6. Jennifer says

    I’d have to pick an Almond Joy cone…sugar cone, of course. Yummm, wishing I had one right now!

  7. Cheryl says

    Summertime… when I’m home in Jersey, I go down the shore and always have a Kohr’s frozen banana custard cone… though it’s not usually served in one of these, my favorite cone is the good old-fashioned sugar with the pointed tip that I can bite and suck out the rest of my melted ice cream (Friendly’s Watermelon sherbet). Cup would be half chocolate and half vanilla – perferably Good Humor. Shake? Coffee for my grown-up self.

    summer ice cream!! My favorite in the summer is mint chocolate chip. My hubby and I went to Nevada City this summer to a place called Treats, where they made some homemade mint chocolate chip (that wasn’t green colored), and it tasted like it came straight from the garden. so delicious!…and usually a cup. 🙂

    LOOOVVVEEEE!!! Pink Lemonade soft ice cream during the summer in a cup please. On a cone, I prefer plain ole vanilla. My favorite shake is cookies and cream, yummy!
