Ice cream and ___________ = a winning combination

I just enjoyed a bowl of home made chocolate chip ice cream (vanilla bean blended with shave ghiradelli semi-sweet chocolate), and what made it so satisfying was the sourdough hard pretzels I dipped in it. This is one of my favorite treats. The sweet, salty, cold & crunchy combination is a winning one for me.

What do you like in or on your ice cream?

              OMG, you just reminded me that they have peanut butter dipped pretzels now - I would oh so love those on my ice cream too!

              Of course, there's always bacon too. ;-P

                Katty, as you know we visit the Asian markets in NYC all the time... although I'm not a fan of chocolate-dipped pretzels, I can tell you that at markets like Lotte, Rhee Brothers and the like they carry the "Pocky sticks" in all sorts of scrumptious flavors/coatings -- and one can certainly add that to ice cream.

                  Ooooh, yes, and not just those, but the little chocolate fish, too. The name escapes me, but bet you know exactly what I mean. They come in an octagonal box, maybe? Mmmmmmmmm...cookie outside, chocolate inside the fish. What are they called?! They are tasty little vittles!
