    Interesting question:

    Pistachio, but I can’t get it here (not Chalov Yisroel).

    I was once in NYC (Queens) where they have a store called Max & Mina’s, which has many different flavors (some CY and some not), and picked up some strawberry cheesecake Ice Cream. It was very good, but not really an Ice Cream “flavor”.

    Is this thread serious? Ice cream really comes in different flavors? When did that happen?

    Heh. No discussion of ice cream flavors is complete without talking about Max & Mina’s. 🙂

    Ice cream really comes in different flavors? When did that happen?

    “Nearly three-quarters of a century ago, two brothers-in-law shared a dream to create an innovative ice cream store that would be a neighborhood gathering place for families. Burton “Burt” Baskin and Irvine “Irv” Robbins had a mutual love of old-fashioned ice cream and the desire to provide customers a variety of flavors made with ingredients of the highest quality in a fun, inviting atmosphere.”

    Max well: It was a while back, and only some flavors were CY (they were listed on a board on the back wall, to the far left of the flavor list).

    This may have changed, and they may no longer have any CY flavors.

    Siter Bear-I always wanted to try cookie dough-but i chickened out (never mind when I bake i like to lick the bowl!) Does it really taste like it sounds?

    I was last there about six months ago. They had some CY flavors then — but they were usually the “traditional” flavors and not the wacky ones that M&M is known for.

    Are all of M&M’s products kosher?

    I can’t believe no one mentioned coffee. That’s my favorite. Vanilla would probably come next.

    (I love coffee ice cream topped with hot fudge and cookie crumbs!)

    If this thread stalls we can open one on your least favorite flavor.

    Mine is black licorice.

    #1194404

    My best flavor of ice cream is coffee but I cant find any cholov yisroel coffee ice cream here. too bad. thats what happens when you live out of town.

    #1194406

    cookie dough is my favorite by far (and i just had it yesterday for the first time in three yrs, cuz i can’t get it cholov yisroel (i took on cy in 10th grade)so someone who knows my father was catering some kind of event and cookie dough was ordered (parve) and he ended up having extra, so he gave some to my father special for me!!!!!!! i am so thankful! (of course, i just sit there pickin out the dough!) blinky, don’t chicken out! it’s soooooooooo good, just like reg cookie dough. just in ice cream.

    mint choco chip comes next. then coffee mocha chip.

    Meatball-Fudge Ripple.

    #1194408

    Meatball fudge ripple is pretty bad but it cant compete with (combination of above)

    herring-sauerkraut-vanilla swirl

    Putting aside Max & Mina-style flavors, I’d have to say my favorite is Rocky Road, followed by a dark, deep chocolate.

    My husband says any flavor other than chocolate or vanilla is not ice cream, it’s a perversion.

    I say as long as it’s dairy and unrelated to anything salty/savory, it’s delicious!

    I can’t believe no one mentioned pickles and ice cream or pickle flavored ice cream.

    tomim tihye – I’m sorry to read about your shalom bayis issue.

    Perhaps your husband and yourself should avoid ice cream altogether.

    No question about it – PISTACHIO, followed by Jamoca Almond Fudge, Heavenly Hash, and anything with chocoltae chunks, cherries, and banana.

    Least favorite – cholent-flavored and M&M had this, don’t know if they still do.

    BTW, M & M candies ARE kosher, just not CH”Y.

    Blinky – I haven’t had it in a while since normally it’s chocolate chip cookie dough but if you get big chunks of cookie dough I think it does taste good.

    fave flavor- cookie dough (or if necessary cookies and cream. But its not half as good) and blinky you’re losing out on not trying it…

    worst flavor- a fruity ice cream. Fruit is fruit and ice cream is ice cream. But a good fruit sorbet is always good.

    Does Max and Mina’s have earwax flavor?

    Yes, right near the vomit style ice cream.

    Only gets sold to pregnant women (kills two birds with one stone).

    “Kishke” ?????????????????

    Hey squeak-earlier in this thread you said that you didn’t know ice cream came in different flavors. i guess you forgot about good old kishke ice cream with oil on top-YUM!

    blinky, once this tread opened my eyes, I knew I had to get out there and find out for myself if there really were different flavors of ice cream.

    So I headed down to the city, where they have stores with ice boxes, and what do you know – they had more than 30 flavors! I thought it was a joke, but I sampled them all. Then I went to a different store and tried some more. My favorite was the kishke.

    squeak-cool! At this rate you can buy your whole Shabbos menu made out of ice cream. Then you can tell ppl you had milchig cholent on shabbos….

    I really miss Haggen-daaz Rum Raisin and Carvel Butterscotch.

    All the CY stuff tastes pretty much the same, so picking a “favorite” is kinda pointless.
