Ice Cream Sunday


Happy Sunday! And Happy Father’s Day, too! I’m giving away something sweet to celebrate summer and of course ice cream.

You know, I think I could eat ice cream every day. It’s always my favorite go-to treat when I travel… but I never really get ice cream at restaurants. That just seems boring. Probably because it’s not as fun as going into a scoop shop and looking all the pretty creamy colors. And I always prefer eating ice cream out of a cup. I don’t like to eat it out of a cone because I’m way messy. So if I do get it in a cone, it’s just so I can snap a picture of it. Then I turn it upside down and dump it in a cup and eat it with a spoon – or better yet – I like to break up the waffle cone (never a sugar cone) and use it to scoop out the ice cream. I may be weird.

Okay, back to the giveaway.

Up for grabs is this Cuisinart 2 Qt. Ice Cream Maker and one of my favorite scoop shops new book, Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream Desserts. Yum! If you have her first book, you’ll want to get your hands on this one, too. It’s divided up into sections like ice cream parlor, bakeshop and sundae bar. So fun!

Here’s the sweet scoop for a chance to win them both:

  • To enter leave a comment on this post and share your favorite ice cream flavor and how you like to enjoy it. Cone, cup, bowl… barrel ; ) ?
  • Deadline to enter is Wednesday, June 18, 2014 at 7:00 pm ET. SORRY, Time’s Up! Winner announced below.
  • One winner will be chosen at random and announced sometime Wednesday evening on this post.

Good luck guys!

I’ve been reading all your favorites for the last couple of days and now I need all the flavors! and a big spoon of course.

Okiedokie – it’s ice cream maker winner time!

The winning comment is #1216. Congratulations Angela – I hope you love making your own mint chocolate chip and butter pecan. YAY!

  95. My absolute favorite is a cookie dough milkshake! When I was younger, my summer camp would take us to a Ben and Jerry’s shop. I could never bring myself to get anything else.

  97. I am all for the classics….i like sweet cream ice cream….but then you mix in rasberries and oreos. And just in a simple bowl. Amazing

  109. My favorite Ice Cream flavor was a Lucky’s store brand(back before it was sold) Ice Cream. It was White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake(I think).

    I like cones but currently that is all my youngest son eats, so I eat the ice cream then hand over the cone.

  110. Coffee cookies and cream is my favorite…..this week. Love it in a bowl with thick deep dark chocolate sauce and whipped cream. Add a few chopped toasted nuts, heaven!!!

  111. Chocolate in a waffle cone!

  112. Mint chocolate-chip!!! Nobody ever understands how good it is… :(

  113. Moose in the loose in a waffle cone:)

  114. I love cookies and cream ice cream in a waffle cone!

  115. My favorite ice cream (at this time) and served in a barrel is a difficult question to answer. Sometimes it is Ben and Jerry’s Cherry Garcia. Other times it is Haagen Daz Vanilla, Chocolate and Strawberry all together like neopolitan. Depends if i want it chunky that day.

  121. My favorite flavor is one I just tried recently while on vacation at the beach: banana pudding. It was from a family owned shop called Scoops where everything is homemade. It was amazing and tasted like my mom’s homemade banana pudding except without the meringue. I guess I could’ve put whipped cream on top!

  122. My favorite flavor is vanilla in a bowl.

  123. B&J’s Coffee Heath Bar crunch is the absolute best. Straight out of the carton of course.

  124. Cookies and cream in a cake cone. YUM!

  125. Definitely mint cookies and cream, even if you can’t find it too often. I would definitely eat that from a barrel! Thanks for the chance to win!

  126. Rocky road in a cone. But the kid in me loves rainbow sherbet.

  127. Peanut butter and chocolate is my favourite, but only the kind that has actual ribbons of peanut butter in it, not pb-flavored ice cream. I, too, prefer a cup or bowl over a cone.

  128. Rocky road, dulce de leche, or tramontana (Argentine ice cream- sweet cream, dulce de leche swirls, and chocolate covered cake balls). Yum!

  129. I like cake batter flavor in a cup!

  143. A barrel of strawberry blonde from Cold Stone for me!! :)

  144. Chocolate is my favorite, and I like it in a bowl. Mmmmm, although working at Baskin Robbins in high school cured me of the need to eat a lot of ice cream in one sitting. I can make a pint of ice cream last forever, so I don’t feel guilty about splurging on the good stuff!

  145. Vanilla is my favorite but I love the toppings just as much!!

  146. Pistachio & coconut ice cream… Yum! I love it in a waffle bowl :-)

  147. My favorite flavor is vanilla. I can remember all of my sisters sitting around my dad while he hand cranked the maker. He would let us turn part of the time but only while it was easy. Our eyes would grow big when he would pull out the paddle, each of us wanting some that stayed on. He always would clean it off, but also left enough to tease us when we reopened it after it settled some. Because my dad is no longer with me, I always feel him when someone brings up making ice cream. Happy Fathers Day, Dad

  148. I love cookies and cream ice cream in a waffle cone

  149. I loooooove Cheesecake ice cream and gummy bears in a waffle cone.

  151. I am a simple chocolate lover… nothing added, just pure and on its own.

  152. Strawberry ice cream with crumbled golden oreos on top in a nice sized bowl!

  153. There are so many amazing flavours out there, it’s almost impossible to pick a favourite! If pressed, though, I’d probably ultimately choose a (big) bowl of decadently rich chocolate ice cream :)

  154. Yummy! My all time classic favorite is chocolate or mint chip. I like a bowl so I can eat more instead of eating the cone. :] // ?

  155. Homemade peach ice cream, the best.

  156. I like cherry and chocolate or gold medal ribbon so yummy! and always in a cone. I love Ice Cream in the summer, a perfect ending to a hot day.

  157. I really love a Rocky Road ice cream cone! Butter Pecan is a close second.

  158. My favourite ice cream flavour has to be Ben and Jerry’s Cherry Garcia! (although it’s technically frozen yogurt). It’s just so sweet and I love the big pieces of Cherry and chocolate! I used to eat this by the tubload, but unfortunately supermarkets stopped stocking it, so now I only get it when I go to the cinema! (boo hoo)

  169. I prefer the old school vanilla. Again, old school, but i like it plain

  170. lemon sherbet is definitely my favorite. It’s so refreshing in the summer! Have it in a big glass bowl

  171. At the ice cream parlor I go old school: chocolate on a classic sugar cone. BUT, the best ice cream in the world is the vanilla that we make three times a year (memorial day, 4th of july, and labor day) at my husband’s mom’s house in their old White Mountain machine that you have to crank by hand. YUM!

  172. Vanilla ice cream with banana and chocolate peanut butter cups. In a cone. Always in a cone.

  173. I love mint choc! on one of those chocolate coated cones

  190. Oh definitely chocolate peanut butter ice cream in a sugar cone! Yum!!

  191. Salted caramel! In a waffle cone. *yum*

  192. I love icecream so much that I can’t pick one favourite ;) Pistachio, coconut, chocolate, and pear ice-cream are the best..

  193. Chocolate chip mint in a cup is my favorite!!
