    Chunky Monkey at 8:08 in the morning. I feel like a criminal. But it's SOOOOOO good.

    What's your favorite flavor (or ice cream brand)?

    New York Chocolate Brownie

    Or the Cinnamon & Oatmeal one that they did a year or so back... (EDIT: Having checked the Flavour Graveyard, it was Oatmeal Cookie Chunk)

    I like B&Js. We went to their factory while in Vermont a few years back and it was great fun. Tastings and a scoop for the icecream. The thing I regret not buying was the cow-patch holder to put your tub in so that your hands didn't get cold when eating from the tub :(

    They also used to have a feature on their (UK only?) website which was an agony aunt.
    One of the girls from the office wrote to it to complain that no-one liked her and 3 days later, 200 mini-pots of B&J turned up in the office addressed to her with a note that they hoped she was able to bribe her colleagues :p

    Ben and Jerry's- pHish food all the way! NOt for breakfast either, but don't mind a bit at 3 in the morning after playing too much Battlefield 2!

    Bryers Vanilla Bean is my favorite overall!

    Too much sugar and fat for my liking. How are B&J's valves? They have to be getting clogged.

    Apparently, each employee is allowed to take home 2 tubs per day.

    A gym membership is also included in their benefits package...

    Lots of phish food fans...i'm not one of them

    On the other hand, I can go through a pint or more of Chubby Hubby, Chocolate Central (I think that was the name) or that Chocolate Therapy very quickly.....mmmm....

    But, with my wife and I on a less processed kick (no hydrogenated, no high fructose), I find the Turkey Hill naturals to be great. Ok, so it's more my wife being the somewhat unwilling health enforcer and me trying to hide...:)

    Fossil Fuel is the greatest ice cream ever created (followed closely by Dublin Mudslide).

    They discontinued 'my' flavor. :(
    The World's Best Vanilla.

    The rest of the flavors aren't my thing. I prefer Häagen-Dazs.

    In the UK, they did too - but replaced it with 'Vanilla for a Change' which is made with ethically sourced vanilla pods... which is equally nice...

    Saw on a program about obesity a while ago that one of the original owners of Ben & Jerry's (dunno which) died of a heart attack aged 40 something. They had one of there sons on who got really really ill when he was young as they had a huge freezer at home with all the types of ice cream in and he used to eat it all the time. He developed a nutrient deficancy and doesn't eat the stuff anymore as docs told him he would develop diabities if he kept eating the amount he was.

    Wish I could remember the name of the programme now.

    Still, give me Britney Spears covered in Phish Food and I'd be a happy man! :D :D :D

    Aww. That is cool. Time for me to look around and see if we have that over here. Thanks for the tip. :D AndyR, I think I saw part of that, did you see it on the Food Network?

    Not a huge ice cream fan, but I've always like Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough ice cream just because it's different.

    On the bland side, I also enjoy a chocolate-dipped cone at Dairy Queen every now and then, which I know barely qualifies as ice cream, but what can I say. Tubs of ice cream go to waste in my house. Which, I suppose, is better than going to waist.
