Ginger Ice Cream

What's the best ginger ice cream you've had? I like it at Moorenko's but am always interested in trying other places. I just tried it at Max's - it went quite well with their spicy pumpkin!

  1. Tropical Ice Cream in Silver Spring, York Castle in Rockville, Sam's Cafe and Market in Rockville. All excellent.

    1. I like the Ginger selection of the Haggen-Dazs Five ice creams.

      1. The ginger at Island Style in Hyattsville (Mt Rainier) is very, very good. In my opinion, Island Style's ice cream is in general far better than York Castle's, which is full of "additives".

        Disclaimer: in my ice cream philosophy ice crystals aren't necessarily a bad thing. I'd rather have "pure" ice cream with ice crystals than "smooth textured" ice cream with emulsifiers and preservatives.
