I obsess over chocolate ice cream. That said, I have zero shame asking for 15 samples at an ice cream parlor, even when I know the exact flavor I want. But when it is all said and done, I always end up with some variation of chocolate. That is, until I had Northern Oregon Blackberry (a flavor Jimmy was smart enough to try). For everyone living in the San Francisco Bay Area, head to a specialties market and treat yourself to this fruity slice of heaven. It is made by Santa Cruz's famous Marianne's Ice Cream and it is the perfect alternative to favorites like mint chip, butter pecan, and yes, even chocolate. (Yes mom, I really have found a chocolate alternative.) For those of you who don't live close, it might be time to take a vacation. Trust me, you won't regret it.
What is your favorite ice cream flavor?
