Rankings

My rankings are based on a simple A-F grading scale.

A fellow ice cream lover summed this scale up the best:

A: Awesome, can't miss.
B: Above average, but might not be for everybody.
C: Meh, pedestrian.
D: Blah, only seek out if you're a fan of the flavor/theme.
F: Do not want.

Although I've simplified my ratings system, I've still arranged the flavors in descending order according to my personal opinion.

  1. I'm a regular reader who rarely comments, but I wanted to say that prior to reading, if someone had asked me to list my favorite flavors, I would've said Jeni's Hummingbird, Graeter's Cookies and Cream, and Ben and Jerry's Cinnamon Buns and Peanut Butter World. With that in mind, you have no idea how much I trust your opinion.

    1. Impressive! It sounds like we have some pretty similar taste buds. Thanks for following the blog and for your comment!

    2. The ice cream informant! If you love talenti sea salt caramel ( my # 1 favorite flavor) then you will probably love their dark chocolate chip if you haven't tried it already, it has a splash of vermouth leaving the chocolate with a true deep dark complexion, yet sweet and soo satisfying!

    3. I haven't tried their Double Dark Chocolate yet, but I'll look into it!

  2. Dude, where is Haagen Dazs Rocky Road on this list? It's absolutely the best store-bought Rocky Road out there.

    1. I've actually never tried their HD's Rocky Road, but after hearing this I might have to try it out next time I see some. Thanks for the tip!

  3. Haagen Dazs chocolate base, as you know, is smoother than Ben & Jerrys (I happen to like both)... and the marshmallow/nut ratio to ice cream is just enough to tantalize without overwhelming your tastebuds. Try it ! Thanks

    1. I'm not crazy about Ben & Jerry's chocolate base, but it's not bad by any means. I've had HD's chocolate in Midnight Cookies 'N Cream before and loved it though so I'll keep my eye out for their Rocky Road.

  4. It's a hard job, but somebody's got to do it. Thank you for tasting all of these tantalizing flavors and saving me from gaining even more weight. How often do you eat ice cream? Which brand is your favorite, in general? What is your number one choice if you had to choose only one? How did you come up with the idea for this clever blog?

    BTW I love your blog and discovered it while doing research on Ben & Jerry's Phish Food. I left a comment on that review. It's very captivating and keeps the taste buds juiced!

    1. That's right! I eat ice cream daily unless I'm out of town. 2-3 servings most days. New Orleans Ice Cream Company's Cafe au Lait & Beignets remains my all time number one and them, along with Graeter's, Steve's and 2nd St. Creamery are my current favorite companies. The list above is in descending order, so it starts with my current #1 ranked flavor all the way to the worst I've had.

      I'm glad to hear you've found us. Spread the word and continue to follow along! Thanks again!

  5. HD is a superior product all around compared to B&J except for a couple of odd ball offerings from B&J. I honestly think there is no comparison..... And I buy both brands. HD is a purer, more elegant product. There purple limited edition flavors are to die for. B&J too heavy on the mix ins. I am curious to try some of the lesser known brands on your A list

  6. Dove Unconditional Chocolate is definitely worth trying (difficult to find these days)
