Salute to dairy: Readers share favorite ice cream flavors

We asked readers on Facebook “What’s your favorite kind of ice cream? And tell us the story behind your choice.” A few responses:

• Coty Wheeler: Mint chocolate chip. My daughter likes it and she makes the rules.

• Mikayla Mountjoy: Thin mint or lemon cookie from Tumbleweed Ice Cream. He makes the ice cream from scratch and you can taste the difference. It is so incredibly good. My boyfriend absolutely adores the hot chocolate ice cream from Sweetwaters at Landalls for the same reason.

• Shelley Lewis Winn: Black walnut, when I can find it. Reminds me of Iowa and fresh black walnuts.

• Raymond Atchley: Soft serve vanilla sold at The Twin Cronies on Commerce Way in Clovis. It’s creamy and has a unique texture of ice crystals, which give the ice cream a firmer consistency and feel on the palate. It’s the best. Unless compared to my late mother’s home cranked ice cream product.

• Geraldine Small: Butter pecan, cause the grandkids don’t like it. 

• Sapphyre Montano: Mine is baseball nut exclusive from Baskin Robbins. As a kid I remember getting that all the time. Then as I grew up I could never find it again unless I went to a Baskin Robbins. Therein, I fell to the very delicious and never wrong flavor of strawberry. So from about age 22 till now strawberry is my go to favorite flavor. But just to let you in on a secret, if you go to Albertsons you can now find a small container of the baseball nut, which is vanilla ice cream with raspberry swirl and has uber amounts of cashews. MMMMM so freeking yummy. Glad I found it again.

• Eve Bergland: Ben and Jerry’s pecan resist, because social justice tastes good.

• Dorothy Robinson: Soft serve vanilla dipped in chocolate. When I was little, my aunt and uncle came to see my grandparents. Uncle Charlie would always take us to Dairy Queen and ask, “What kind of ice cream do you want?” I always said, “A dirty dip!” He would laugh and know exactly what I meant. He would retell the story every time we got together. A family joke until he died at the age of 99.

• Casey Peacock: Vanilla ice cream with Nestle Quick chocolate powder sprinkled on it. My dad and I used to eat this at night after supper.

• Janie Palubin: Vanilla. We used to only get Neapolitan and I didn’t like the chocolate or strawberry.

• Virginia Herrera: Just a plain vanilla ice cream cone from either McDonalds or Foxy’s Drive-In. My mommy (now my angel as of April 2020) and I used to always go get us some and cruise around town or go to the park and enjoy our ice cream cones. We loved our time together. Oh how I miss my queen!
