Everything is Better With Ice Cream

One of my favorite things in the world is ice cream. I love it and I'm not overly picky about flavors, although I do have my favorites. I prefer hard server over soft serve, but soft serve has its place. Everything is better with ice cream. Pie. Waffles. Sprinkles.

Maine Residents are Flocking to Newly Opened Ice Cream Stands

With all the ice cream shops opening around the state and the weather warming up, I wanted to know your favorite ice cream flavors. So I asked on Facebook and got a lot of answers. This is not a scientific poll or a large sample. It's just what a bunch of our listeners told me they love. I'm not naming ice cream shops because I don't play favorites. This is just a celebration of one of the truly indulgent joys of the summer season.

There Were a Lot of Ice Cream Flavors That Only Got a Single Vote

There were a lot of runners-up in this poll, that only got a vote or two. Some of the flavors that appeared on the list just once include cherry walnut, Indian pudding, and toasted coconut. Those all sound delicious but I think I have to seek out the Indian Pudding because I love anything with a molasses flavor. You told me you love black cherry, French vanilla, orange dream, pistachio, and cookies and cream (which I thought would get more votes). No one mentioned strawberry, all by itself, although it was listed as a twist cone. I'm not a fan of strawberry ice cream and I guess I'm not alone.
