Cone or cup? Toppings or plain? One scoop or three? Ice cream is one of the most popular cold treats, but that doesn’t mean it can only be enjoyed in the summer. As fall temperatures continue to drop and winter creeps ever closer, many people still can’t resist picking up their favorite flavor of this frosty dessert. But with so many flavors to choose from, it can be daunting to decide! We’ll make it easy for you. Here are some of the top-rated ice cream flavors to taste test.
One of the legendary original flavors, chocolate is perhaps the most popular flavor. Both simple, easily accessible, and classic, it’s available at any location that sells ice cream. You’d be hard- pressed to find someone that doesn’t like this flavor. Who doesn’t love chocolate?
Cookies and Cream
Sorry chocolate chip, cookies and cream takes the lead here. Creamy vanilla flavor combined with Oreo-like cookie crumbles. It’s hard to mess that up. This flavor is another popular choice that adds a little crunch to the soft sweetness.
Marshmallow. Nuts. Chocolate. Are you serious? Of course we want a scoop! This flavor has a lot to offer, but every topping attacks our taste buds in different ways. This is a superb option for those seeking something a little extra.
Another classic flavor, strawberry is a sweet and colorful ice cream choice. Some variations include real chunks of strawberry, while others opt for a smooth and creamy experience. Either way, this treat is scrumptious.
What do you get when you take a vanilla base, add some buttery goodness, and sprinkle in a few pecans? Heaven, obviously. Butter Pecan has been gracing the tongues of ice cream lovers for decades now, and it doesn’t seem to be stopping anytime soon.
Mint Chip is simply wonderful and reminds many of Christmas. While some may think resembles toothpaste, many more believe it is among the best of the best. Full of chocolate chips, this green (and sometimes white) ice cream flavor somehow manages to taste amazing and leaves our breath smelling minty fresh.
Vanilla ice cream littered with unbaked cookie dough chunks? Consider us intrigued. It is often mixed with chocolate chips as well, adding another layer of intricate toppings. Popular with both cookie and ice cream lovers alike, this flavor is not to be ignored.
The OG. The granddaddy. The king of ice cream. Vanilla is the original ice cream flavor, and it is also the most versatile. Top it with syrup, sprinkles, cookies, and every other type of topping you can think of! It’s good in a cone, scooped, or soft served. While it can seem rather plain compared to other entries, it is still a powerhouse on its own. There’s just something about the creamy, simple nature of vanilla that keeps us coming back for more.
Grab a Cone!
These are among the top-rated ice cream flavors, so if there’s one you haven’t tried, you’d better grab yourself a cone. Don’t worry about all the added calories you’re sure to consume, you can always burn them off later by going to the gym or taking a few jogs–just be sure to wear comfortable sneakers, or else you’ll need surgery for heel spurs. Whether you enjoy extravagant flavors like Rocky Road or have a simpler pallet for tastes like chocolate or vanilla, we can all agree that ice cream is the perfect treat for any time of the year.
