Ice cream: vanilla or chocolate base? Lots of stuff added or little? Any additions you hate?
#1: There’s this ice cream place in Houston near Rice University that I think is my favorite ice cream place in the entire country and I kind of wish I could go back to Houston just to visit it. (There’s gelato places that I like more, but not ice cream. And my favorite hot chocolate place is in Boston in Harvard Square. And my favorite coffee place is in Los Angeles, in or near Santa Monica. One benefit of lots of travel for work…) Basically all they sell is different kinds of chocolate ice cream with different chunky things in them, lots and lots of chunky things added. OMG, so wonderful. They have this one with nuts that is out of this world, but they give you two little scoops with a small so you can get that on bottom and like chocolate orange or the girl scout cookie one (which I don’t see as one of their regular choices– I must have just gotten lucky) on top. SO GOOD. One addition I dislike is a weird one– I love maraschino cherries and I love fresh/frozen real cherries, but sometimes you order a cherry ice cream and you end up with like the cherries that they use in fruit-cake and it’s just so wrong.
#2: chocolate with things added
