Do you have a favorite ice cream bar?

Mine is the Magnum Bar ... and today I am just giddy (giddy I say!) to learn that finally Unilever is bringing the Magnum to the U.S. of A.

No more having to suck down Skinny Cow or Eskimo Pie bars for me.


What about you? Do you have a favorite ice cream bar (stick or not)?

    I like the Klondike bars with the crispy rice in the coating.
    Haagen Dazs bars are pretty good too.

      I like Dove bars. The magnum looks great - have never had one. But ultimately, I've never met an ice cream bar I'd refuse to eat. Oh, I lied ... I really don't like orange creamsicles.

        dove Bars. Dark chocolate, vanilla ice cream only. Perfection on a stick.

          I haven't had one of these (yet) because I fear it might detract me from my simple enjoyment with traditional ice cream, but they are called Swingles.

            When i was a kid I LOVED Heath ice cream bars Do they stille ven make those? My grandfather loved Eskimo Pies.

            Now, while I don't care for regular ice cream that much, I love Drumsticks and ice cream sandwiches. Yum!

              Swingles sound awesome. Pie (any kind) on a stick is never a bad thing.

                Mine has always been the old school, Good Humor, Chocolate Chip Candy bar. A milk chocolate bar enveloped in vanila ice cream and topped with chocolate candy topping with little rice-type chips. Yum.
