Maple Ice Cream with Buttered Nuts from Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams at Home

In case you haven't already noticed, it's a week of ice cream (and popsicles, and frozen treats, like this amazingness) around these parts. So, we just have to ask: What's your favorite flavor of ice cream, and why?

Personally, I adore the maple ice cream pictured above; it's quite over-the-top. But I also like a scoop of something fresh and tangy, like lemon ice cream or a recipe with goat cheese or sour cream in it (watch for a lovely little treat along these lines from Sara Kate later this week...).

What about you? What's your favorite ice cream, and why?
