    Mmmmm. . .mint chocolate chip!

  8. Celeste says:

    my fave is from a local ice cream parlor … called “Graham Central Station.” absolutely delicious.

  9. Now I grew up in SoCal and can you believe I’ve never even heard of Foster’s Freeze? Is it the same as DQ?
    I’m not a coffee drinker (AT ALL), but there something about mocha flavored ice cream that just does it for me. So if there’s anything with that flavor it would probably be my favorite.
    Have you ever had The Chart House’s Mud Pie? Now that something to die for.

    Chocolate ice cream with peanut butter chunks…yum!

    Oh Lisa!
    Greg, Doogan and I have been doing the same thing here on Bainbridge!
    There’s this adorable little yogurt place called Mora’s!
    I’ve got to feature it this summer on Blooming on Bainbridge…cause it soooo Bainbridge!
    The yogurt/icecream is made right here on the island!
    They give the doggies a little cup of vanilla!
    So my favorite is the PLAIN tangy, sour yogurt!
    And for toppings I have them add caramel sauce and chopped walnuts!
    One of my all time favorite taste EVER!

    Mint chocolate chip! But the white kind, not the green kind ;).

    Teresa, I live in Olympia and love that treat on Bainbridge whenever I go!

  13. Used to be Dean’s Moosetracks, but now I’ve found Dean’s Fannie Mae Mint MeltAway. I have my 3 yr. old grandson to thank for introducing me!! Thank God he likes the color green!!

  14. Margaret Scott says:

    Love all ice cream but if I had to say… cookies and cream!

  15. oo! easy. mint sweet cream & cookies by ben & jerry’s. mmmm.

  16. Michelle F says:

    My favorite shake at Fosters Freeze is hot fudge, so yummy. My first job was at Fosters Freeze in Napa, CA.

  17. Desiree says:

    never been to a frosty freeze… all time favorite is mint chocolate chip :) yum

  18. Christine says:

    I used to work down the street from that Foster Freeze!!! would “treat myself” every payday with a hot fudge sundae!
    My favorite store-bought ice cream = Trader Joe’s Mint & Chip… the chips are square, melt-in-your-mouth minty fresh! I can’t keep it around because I really can’t resist having a spoon… or two… or four…

  19. Priscilla says:

    coffee and only coffee – but vanilla if no coffee

  20. jasmine says:

    mmmmmmm… we love Foster’s too! we can’t have dinner downtown without ice cream or yogurt – or maybe a cowboy cookie afterward. my favorite is a hot fudge sundae, but Foster’s has a hot fudge shake that I’ve never tried and need to.

  21. Mary Beth says:

    Oh Lisa, I love that you treat yourself to ice cream every day! And you have certainly inspired me to seek out a frozen yogurt place here locally. Lately I’ve been buying Trader Joe’s ice cream and it is delicious! Started with coffee. Tonight is mint chip.

  22. I am 3,310% a chocolate girl… but lately I have really been loving butter peacn! Crazy!

  23. mmmmm. ice cream. anything homemade is my fave. :)

  24. Amanda says:

    Fosters Freeze was SUCH a staple of my childhood summers! It’s been way too long since I’ve been…
    Love ice cream, even just plain vanilla. Lately I’ve been doing plain chocolate and dipping in spoonfuls of all-natural peanut butter. SO yummy.

  25. Jennifer says:

    Sweet photos! :)

    My favorite flavor is pistachio almond… yum!

  26. sarita says:

    right now i’m loving orange sherbet – OR combo of orange,pineapple and raspeberry sherbet – AND i use a baby bowl and a baby spoon to eat it with!!! takes a long time to eat a bit!!!

  27. Laura says:

    i love all flavors, but lately i’ve been on a chocolate chip kick!

    New York Cherry Cheesecake

    Hi Lisa, here in New Zealand we don’t have basically any of the types of flavours you have over there (the fancy ones I mean). We do have things like cookies and cream though.
    My absolute! favourite icecream flavour is rich, pure vanilla bean!! I love the creaminess of it and the gorgeous specks of vanilla.
    Now don’t laugh – but I can only eat icecream after dinner at night. I simply cannot face it during the day – how weird is that!! The same applies to chocolate! Hmmm I am weird.. giggle…

  30. Southern Gal says:

    I love everything except chocolate. I’d rather have my chocolate as candy. 😉

  31. I love that you had a chocolate oreo shake… I am an oreo fiend! In fact, we (my hubs and I) are organizing a community band festival-thing at the end of August and I will be *singing* “Oreo Cookie Blues”. LOVE the Oreo, ESPECIALLY in ice cream – yum.
