It's Ice Cream Week at The Kitchn! What's Your Favorite Flavor of Ice Cream?

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?
