In any case, much of the ice cream I ate while growing up was stuff bought at the grocery store. Lots of store brand ice cream and some dreyer's ice cream. I remember at one point, the dreyer's mint n' chip ice cream had chocolate chips that were in the shape of seeds. This one time, I remember saving them all up in this little blue chest. I'm guessing I ate them all eventually but I can't remember. I didn't ever like sundaes or banana splits. I was a purist. Just give me ice cream on a cone-preferably a green cone. I didn't particularly like the sugar cones when I was a kid (who knows what was wrong with me!).
Nowadays, I've gotten pickier about my ice cream. Ohh, we have had mochi coming out of our ears but my favorite brand of ice cream? Hands down is Breyers. In the freezer right now, there's got to be at least three different cartons of Breyers ice cream. Have you had the peach?? It's to die for (and I typically don't even like canned peaches or fruit cups!). I also love strawberry (there are REAL strawberry chunks in there!). Breyers is tops with me because the ingredients are so basic. I think what did it was watching Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution in LA.
