    What's better on a hot summer afternoon than ice-cream? What's your favorite flavor? Mine would be anything with peanut butter.

    My favorite is coffee ice cream!

    If you are ever in Delaware, check out this place. It's a must stop for my family on the way home from the beach.

    Oh, this is tough.  So many options to choose, as my favorites are dependent on my mood.  But I will go with my first favorite -- Friendly's Black Raspberry.  When I was little I called it "purple ice cream."

    My answer has two parts.  When I was small, we used to go to the Jersey shore at Ocean City. There was an ice cream place in Somers Point, and it had my favorite at the time, blueberry, homemade.  One time I ordered the triple dip.  I ate the whole thing, and was sick for a couple of days after.  It was delicious!

    In later life I found my favorite at Thrifty Drug in Arizona, a chain that had Coconut ice cream.  That was the best. I don't think the Thrifty Drug chain even exists anymore, let alone ice cream served with a dipper from a case in a drug store.  How far we have fallen.

    Coffee, followed quickly by Mint Chocolate Chip or Coconut.  A few years back we checked out this location in San Francisco, now closed I think: https://www.museumoficecream.com  However, the franchise has a few other locations.  Honestly, would provide mixed reviews - and a little light on maintaining an ice cream focus, BUT they offered many interesting ice cream treats at their ice cream bar.

    As a youngster I spent many a summer vacation with my family at Callaway Gardens in Pine Mountain, Georgia. One of the unique things there is -- wait for it -- muscadine ice cream. It is one of those things that you either really like it or you don't. I make the occasional trip back there and always stop to have some ice cream. It brings back some great memories!

    I love chocolate and mango!
    I do like to try rare, fun, unique flavor such as black seasame, chili (surprisingly tastes good), taro, durian...... I know that some Trader Joe's has taro ice cream~

    @Hyunju Jeon, I am Team Mint! The rest of my family doesn't like it, so I buy other flavors to have at home. But when I go out, my choice is Mint Chocolate Chip!​
