Awhile back I used to buy the Quebon brand (do not see it anymore) for the above flavors which I love . Does anyone know of any other brands . It seems that orange is hard to find

    Ciao Bella has a very good Pistachio gelato. <-- Make this a top choice for yourself.

    Ben & Jerry's also satisfies both of your flavor cravings.

    Breyers has a Vanilla Ice cream with Orange Sorbet combo also.

      If you have a Filipino area in your town, check out the various flavours of "Magnolia" brand. They offer many fruit flavours, such as lychee and jackfruit (and of course, durian, which has me leaving the house screaming in terror whenever my wife opens it). They also have an ice cream "con queso", which means "with cheese". Never tried that either, but some of the fruit flavours are interesting, and out of the ordinary.

        The queso-flavored ice cream has a very interesting salty-sweet interplay on the tongue. It is not necessarily my favorite flavor, but it would make for a very grown up dessert perhaps paired with sweet corn or cinnamon roasted apples.

        my first thought when I saw this header was the orange-pineapple ice cream that used to be made by Brookfield Ice Cream in Newfoundland. They also made (make?) flavors like grapenut and maple walnut.

        I never knew pistachio ice cream even existed until I went to the states as a child.

          I've never heard of orange ice cream either ,. My first thought was "yuck" - but I guess it may be similar to a creamsicle...so mmmmm...yeah I bet it's very nice!!

            Had some Ciao Bella pistachio gelato last night that was seriously good (albeit not cheap, it was on sale at $2.99 a pint). I don't know how widely they're distributed, but I got it at a regular supermarket here in Boston, not a Whole Foods or gourmet shop.

              Wow - thanks for the Ciao Bella link - I have only had their blackberry-cabernet flavor (sorbet) - and wow was it delicious! I didn't realize how vast their flavor selection is. The Shoprite I frequent only carries 3-4 flavors.

                thanks for the heads up, bob. that ciao bella is available all over northern virginia regular grocery stores, e.g., safeway, harris teeter -- but not giant -- at least in arlington. it's also at whole foods.

                add some extra toasted pistachios on top and you're ready to go!

                    Ben & Jerry's has pistachio ice cream that's pretty good.
                    I don't think I've seen orange ice cream - sherbert or sorbet, yes but ice cream no... sorry I can't help there.

                      About two months back I bought Coaticook pistachio (2 litres around $5.00). It was very good, they use real milk and real pistachios. Sugar is the third ingredient so it is not super sweet like Breyers or the more commercially popular brands. I have tried several flavours since then whenever I go to a birthday party or dinner and they are always a hit. They are sold at most supermarkets now so you should not have too much difficulty finding it. There was a post on Coaticook not too long ago here on chowhound. Give it a try, I think you'll like it. I don't know if they have orange. I don't recall seeing it but you can check out the website of their dairy at http://www.laiteriedecoaticook.com. Good luck.
