Haagen daaz dulce de leche but they've hardly ever got it anywhere.
failing that, HD pralines and cream
or I had a lovely lemon meringue pie one once long ago

Phish food is LOVELY. All chocolately and caramelly and marshmallowy and has fish made out of chocolate. I seem to vaguely remember its named after a rock band called Phish.

I like two:

B&J Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough
Gu Vanilla - I think it's the nicest vanilla you can get from the supermarket and is lovely with Gu choclate brownie's sprinkled on top.

yeo valley is lovely as is mackies (but i think they might only be in scotland). i like my icecream hydrogenated fat free!

Mackies is my favourite vanilla, being slightly more grainy and icy and Italiante than ones like H-D and B&B, which can be a bit sickly.

I don't like B&J - too sickly and full of bits of stuff - more like a mars bar bunged in the freezer than ice cream.

GU choc - very very dark and bitter (for ice cream) - fab.

MaryAnnSingleton Wed 26-Sep-07 13:59:10

yes,Mackies is very nice - I love plainj vanilla ice cream best of all

Agree with the home made though for ordinary bought vanilla ice cream Mackies is a cut above most. You can get it from Sainsburys, Waitrose (organic version of course) and the Co-op in my area of East Anglia.

Mackies is the best kind to get in the supermarket, unfortunately I can't get it down here.

B&J Cherry Garcia is fab. Cherry ice cream with dark chocolate chunks....cannot be beaten IMO.

Piffle Wed 26-Sep-07 14:12:36

ben and jerry too sweet IMO esp phish food

I adore and am addicted too Haagen Dazs dulce de leche and their ltd edition mango and passionfruit
to die for
Am actually eating dulce de leche now
oh the liberty of breastfeeding and needing these calories grin
