    Ice cream is my fave dessert, and asking me to pick my fave is like asking a Mom or Dad to pick their favorite child. Ok, I kid. But seriously? This is an awesome giveaway so…with that said I'll narrow it down– chocolate caramel toffee crunch. It's from Oberweis (, a local chain in the Midwest. Yum-O!

    This is my dream. Ice cream is the best invention in the WORLD. Ok, the wheel was pretty good too since it can take you to go and get ice cream…BUT if you are all out of wheels having this little gem would be PERFECT! I've been researching trying to figure out which ice cream maker to get and when and that good stuff then I see this. Someone has answered my prayers! My favorite ice cream would have to be triple chocolate. Dark chocolate, milk chocolate and white chocolate all in layers. It is DIVINE! Thanks for the chance to win this best giveaway prize EVA!

  36. 36

    I love ice cream – everyone in my family does. =D My favorite is plain old vanilla… possibly because it's fun to play with by mixing in various things one bowl at a time. I like to let it sit a while to get soft then stir in chopped up peanut butter cups or crushed up Oreo cookies, m&m candies etc. Yeah I play with my food as if I were still a kid. :p

    My favorite kind of ice-cream is homemade vanilla ice-cream, with brownie bites, with caramel and chocolate fudge sauce drizzle. It's so yummy. Growing up in the Azores, my mom used to make ice-cream by just mixing the ingredients and freezing, we didn't have an ice-cream maker, but the ice-cream was delicious just the same.

  131. 131

    I love anything chocolate. Chocolate peanut butter or mint chocolate chip would be my top two though…
