At the Mr. Food Test Kitchen, we all scream for ice cream, which is why all month long we’ve been celebrating National Ice Cream Month. I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but if you’ve been following us on Facebook, I’ve been making sure to share some of our best Mr. Food Test Kitchen ice cream recipes, as well as asking you fun questions all about…well, ice cream!
I loved asking all of you what your favorite flavors are or where the best places to get ice cream are, and thought you guys might enjoy seeing what some of the top answers were, too! Be sure to read all the way through for some amazingly easy ice cream recipes, as well as a chance to win some unique ice cream accessories!
01. What’s the most creative flavor of ice cream you’ve ever tasted?
I didn’t get too many answers on this one. I guess most of you stick to more traditional flavors. However, chocolate with cayenne pepper, papaya, and salted caramel were a few of the ones you guys mentioned.
02. What’s the best ice cream shop you’ve ever been to?
Some other notables were:
Olson’s Ice Cream– Chippewa Falls, WI
Jet Freeze – Beavercreek, OH
Young’s Jersey Dairy – Yellow Springs, OH
03. What’s your all-time favorite ice cream flavor?
Chocolate is the winner, although many of you like a little something more with your chocolate! (Try making our Chocolate Dream Ice Cream!) Other favorite flavors were coffee, Butter Pecan, and Rocky Road.
04. Ice cream in a cone? If yes, waffle cone or sugar cone?
There was a clear winner in this one. Most of you prefer to eat your ice cream in a waffle cone. (Me too!)
Chocolate Dipped Cones are pretty good, too!
05. What’s your favorite ice cream topping?
When it comes to topping off ice cream, many of you agreed that hot fudge is the way to go. Caramel and nut toppings were your next best choices. (No sprinkles?)
06. If you could invent a new ice cream flavor, what would you call it and what would it contain?
You guys sent us some sweet and savory options, including:
“Spectacular Speta” – spinach & Feta cheese
“Chocolate Chip Pancakes” – pancake Flavor with a ribbon of fudge & syrup
Chai Tea with lots of cinnamon
Macaroni & cheese flavor with bits of bacon
“Orange Pineapple” – orange sherbet & shredded pineapples
Peanut butter & bananas with a streak of strawberry jam
Most of these sound great to me too!
I’ve got one more question for you to answer, and it could make you a winner!
There are so many ways to make an ice cream sandwich these days! You can put go traditional, or you can put it inside a doughnut, crepe, or even inside a frozen waffle!
(I know, #7 calls for pudding, but wouldn’t it be great with Rocky Road?!)
