5 ice cream flavors you really need to try

I love ice cream. It’s so awesome. But do you ever feel like I do? Like sometimes you can’t decide on which flavor of ice cream to choose? There are just so many options! Next time you find yourself scratching your head, unable to make a decision, check out this guide. I wrote it. It’s a guide to ice cream flavors. Here are five ice cream flavors that you really need to try!

  1. Vanilla

Vanilla is so awesome. It’s really simple. The only flavoring here is vanilla. Have you ever seen vanilla beans? They’re really long and skinny and dark, dark brown. But don’t let that fool you, because vanilla ice cream is white. Vanilla is delicious. Did you know that cream soda is vanilla flavored also? I always wondered why they don’t just call it vanilla soda. Probably because it’s caramel colored, and so people might get confused. They’d say to themselves, wait a second, isn’t vanilla white? It’s confusing.

  1. Chocolate

Chocolate is so good! It’s just like vanilla, but instead of using vanilla as the only flavor, you get chocolate. You know what you never see? Chocolate soda. I’ve never seen a chocolate soda. Although, when I worked at a diner in high school, old people used to ask for chocolate sodas all the time. It’s not the same. They’re either asking for an ice cream soda, which is disgusting, or a chocolate egg cream, which is even more disgusting. I have no idea how the greatest generation got to be so great, because it definitely wasn’t by mixing milk and seltzer. That’s just nasty.

  1. Strawberry

What a great flavor, strawberry. It’s pink. And there are usually chunks of strawberries floating around. The strawberries are frozen. Sometimes when I eat strawberry ice cream, I’ll get strawberry seeds stuck in the back of my molars. But not every time, only sometimes. One time I visited some cousins in Canada, and they had a strawberry plant in the backyard. But the strawberries were really small and sour. Maybe they weren’t strawberries. They were gross.

  1. Vanilla and Chocolate

You know, like a swirl. Some of the ice cream trucks by my house will swirl their vanilla and chocolate soft-serves. But some of them refuse. I’m always like, why can’t you do it? All of the other trucks do it. And they make up some answer about not having the same equipment. I don’t know, I don’t buy it. I can’t shake the feeling that I’m being lied to.

  1. Neapolitan

Vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry. It’s the best of all three flavors, packed into the same container. I’ve found that, if you try to treat them as separate flavors, it backfires, you wind up mutilating the container. It never comes out just right. So that’s why I like to make sure I get an equal amount of all three flavors in the same scoop. It’s great. Ice cream is great. You should totally try all of these awesome flavors.
