ONE QUESTION before you go!  What is your favorite ice cream flavor?  Mine is mint chocolate chip.  YUM!
brand?  (OK.  That's 2 questions!)  I love Jeni's (Backyard Mint is luscious).  Check out Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams  HERE.

    I have to say that I don't have a favorite flavor as I try to taste different things. But I am partial to Blue Bell.

  5. Praline and cream, strawberry cheesecake... YUM!

  6. Oooh, those ice cream sandwich earrings were SO CUTE. And I'm a vanilla gal, unless there's maybe Hagen Daz maple walnut around, but there never is.
