Summer Escapes: Favorite Ice Cream Survey

Pin it button big

The end of summer is approaching, and we're trying not to take the hot golden August weather for granted. We think it's time for one more ice cream party, and we stuffed our freezer with seasonal flavors to try. We're going to check out Jeni's Ohio Sweet Corn with Blackberries and Sweet Basil and Honey, and maybe make another flavor or two ourselves.

So we want to do a little lunchtime survey: What's your favorite summer ice cream flavor? We took a friendly poll among our editors - our picks below the jump.

Chris: Cherry Vanilla is my favoite. Sid's Chocolate from Ronnybrook Farms and blood orange gelato are close runners up.

Sara Kate: At an ice cream counter, I'm a sucker for mint chocolate chip. At home, I like ice cream made out of herbs: basil, lemon verbena, whatever's wild in the garden that I can stew with the milk before making the custard. I also like really well-done chocolate ice cream. A friend recently made me ricotta ice cream out of Gourmet that was amazing.

Faith: Salted caramel. Southern lemon buttermilk sherbet. Anything with fruit and chocolate, like Graeter's raspberry chip.
