    I used to love a mandarin chocolate sherbet that one of the chains used to make. I’d love to recreate it.

  2. Nancy Owens says

    What an exciting week find on my e-mail this morning! Always wanted to learn how to make ice cream.
    Thanks for the opportunity to learn more and win great goodies!

  3. Mandy Shannon says

    Oh I just recently tried a new flavor by Blue Bell called Magic Cookie Bar which is utterly delicious, oh my, the kind of stuff that’ll make you throw good sense out the window. Definitely my new favorite. Sweetened condensed milk flavored ice cream with graham crust pieces, coconut, dark chocolate chunks, roasted pecans and caramel sauce YUMMMMMMM!!!!

  4. Donna Visnosky says

    My favorite ice cream flavor is tin roof. I love the saltiness of the peanuts with the creamy vanilla and fudge flavors. The peanuts themselves are an added indulgence.

  5. Shyla says

    I absolutely love ferrero flavoured ice-cream from Cold Rock, hazelnutty chocolate swirls in slightly chocolatey ice cream yummo. Love it with snickers, malteasers and brownie all mixed in!!!

  6. Leslie Baker says

    31 Flavors used to have a flavor called Valley Forge Fudge which was my favorite. I’ve had a version of this delicious flavor at our local Frozen Custard stand here in Kewaunee, WI made with Chocolate custard, fudge bites and almonds. YUM!

  7. Andrea Troutman says

    I love coconut chocolate chip ice cream or just chocolate. Thank you for the chance to enter this giveaway!
