Favorite commercial ice cream treat?

I live 5 blocks from Sketch in Berkeley and oh, I know I should be going Ici and La, but my favorite ice cream treat right now is a vanilla fudge drumstick. I have one every day that things are going wrong at work (which is a lot lately). Multi-layered and then a chocolate well at the bottom of the cone and then you get to eat the peanuts that fell off into the bottom of the wrapper. That said, I am looking forward to sampling Mashti Malone in Hollywood at the end of the month.

Anyone else care to confess?

  1. Ice Cream Sandwich. Vanilla. Slightly Melty...

    *swoons*

    1. Dreamery's Coney Island Waffle Cone. One of the few pint sized ice creams I'm always tempted to eat the whole entire carton of in one sitting (this from someone who doesn't crave ice cream too often).

        sivyaleah... are you talking about Edy's Dreamery Ice Cream??? I used to love that brand, and I can't find it anymore, so I e-mailed them about it, and they said they are not making Dreamery anymore!!! Can you still get it or are we talking about something different?!

          Nope, that's the one. Where do you live? I think it depends on what part of the country you're from. Here in the northeast, (I'm in NJ) it's still available. I think it's called Dreyer's in other parts?

          Their plain vanilla is amazing too!

            I'm in Kansas, but I thought they said they weren't making it at all anymore when I e-mailed them! (Of course, they acted like I was crazy for even contacting them about it!) I don't think we have Dreyer's either, but I'll check for that next time. Their plain vanilla is really amazing, and I'm not even a vanilla kind of girl! (The apple pie and strawberry cheesecake are good too and also not normally flavors I would like in my ice cream either!) I'm on a mission now!

            Dreyers in headquartered in Oakland, CA. Edy's used to be an old-time Berkeley ice cream parlor. It is now closed, but I'm thinking Dreyers may have bought the name?

              I went on Dreyer's website and Edy's website and they look the same, same packaging, same flavors, etc., so I'm not sure what the deal is...

              1. re: Katie Nell

                It's Edy's on the East coast and Dreyer's out on the West coast - I'm not sure why this is the case either, and I'm also not sure where the dividing line is. But they're the same thing, just different names.

                I love those ice cream Drumsticks too - ESPECIALLY the chocolate bit at the bottom of the cone, and I'm always careful not to hold the cone there lest I melt it.

                1. re: Katie Nell

                  dreyers sells as edys in the eastern us because of the ubiquity of breyer's ice cream. there is no fear of confusion between breyer's and edy's...

          3. In this area...I tend to go for icy novelties, so I am not sure if you would include it in the ice cream realm. But, cherry Marino's Italian Ices. Which must ONLY be eaten with the little wood scraper you get. And then half way through you have to turn it over to get the sticky-sweet-crunchy part! Just like I did as a child from the ice cream man. No fancy ices for me!!! Is Marino's available nationwide? After that, the Bomb Pop. Who cares that my tounge turns blue???

            1. Fudgesicle. I wrote a whole entry on my food blog about them

              1. Chocolate eclair, strawberry shortcake and (really hard to find) toasted almond bars. All of these are Good Humor bars!
