Ice Cream Bars. .

Love the Drumstick with vanilla and fudge center peanut crusted thing of beauty..
The chocolate at the tip with a little vanilla is one of my faves besides all the nuts and chocolate ganache..

Magnum bars are really good too.

Loved to hear your favorites.

  1. Now yer talkin'! Drumsticks!

    I don't care much for a bowl of ice cream but I loooove ice cream bars. I also love the vanilla and orange cups (the kind with the little wood paddle). There is something about the wood flavor with the ice cream..... Not really a bar though.

    Ice cream sandwiches are one of my favorites. The traditional kind.

      There is something about that little wooden paddle when eating ice cream.

        In CT every birthday party when I was growing up had Hoodsie cups. Try we're a mix if vanilla and chocolate eaten with te stick. I wonder I they still sell them?

          Yes. Strawberry also. Look on bottom shelf in freezer.

            They do still sell them here in MA. My kids, like me, hate the wooden taste and use a plastic spoon to eat them though. Yeah, we're picky.....

              I hate the taste of the wooden spoon or stick

      2. So cheap, so fake, so low-quality and I don't care. Good Humor Toasted Almond bars are so....mmmmmmmmmmmmm.

          I'm not sure if it was the overdose of sugar that burned my tongue a little or if it was all the chemicals, but I still found those almond bars irresistible as a kid!

          1. re: Justpaula

            we had them last night.....
            They were on sale for $1.99 box, so we stocked the freezer

                    A bakery with a full bar... why doesn't a place like this get franchised!

                      They opened a second location last year, so you never know... I don't know if they still do it, but when they first opened they had cookie happy hour - fresh baked cookies every hour from 3:30pm-6:30pm.

                      1. re: hyacinthgirl

                        Back in the day, there was a bakery that would host pop-up raves – drinks were served at the bakery counter upstairs and dancing was in the basement, among the flour and sugar sacks. The police shut it down after a while, but it was fun while it lasted.

                  2. I probably haven't had one in 20 years, but I used to love the Good Humor Strawberry Shortcake bars and now I need to go hunt down an ice cream truck!

                      Hubby loves those. My local Sundaes Ice Cream Shop makes a flavor called "Flavor of Love." It was released as a flav of the month for Feb, hence the name. It is a Strawberry Shortcake bar made into regular icecream (pink!) with the cookie crumbs and chocolate cookie swirl. So good.

                    2. Choco-taco, especially the peanut butter ones! I've yet to meet an ice cream sandwich I'd turn down, but there's one at Whole Foods that's really good, it's Julie or Julia's and the ice cream actually tastes like vanilla.

                          I LOVE Choco-Tacos. I probably haven't eaten one in 15 years, but now I'm craving like mad.
