Per ice cream: Stroh's "Sanders' Bumpy Cake N' Creme" is perhaps my favorite. Sanders is a Detroit based company, and I believe Stroh's is as well, and I don't know if it's national or more regional with its products. Kind of like how Faygo's Rock N' Rye pop/soda has been one of my favorites since childhood, but non-Michiganders often have no idea what I'm talking about. Of more standard flavors of ice cream: Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough and Mint Chocolate Chip are also favorites. Though something about making homemade cookies and using eggs from free-range hens (my parents own chickens) has put me off of raw cookie dough. Namely that I have no control over what the birds are eating, if they are at all healthy (whether there's any risk of parasitic or bacterial infections spreading) and that at no point prior to cooking the cookie dough do I feel that some degree of sterilization may have occurred. Taking parasitology as a university course has taken the ignorance away that used to just let me enjoy stuff and not think of it. I suppose I'm more comfortable with the idea of eating something made by a company that has to meet health standards though, rather than something I make. If I ever hit a sandy texture in a burger or chicken, my appetite is ruined.
