Ice Cream Rant

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
I love chocolate in its infinite varieties of ice cream. I love my two best friends Ben & Jerry, but why, oh why can't I find my favorite flavor of Ice Cream? I have been looking since I moved to this blasted state and I even look in the non-dairy ice cream section, but I cannot find Maple Nut Ice Cream!!!!!!!! And to all you Ohioans who think that Butter Pecan is the same thing - No, it is not even close!

Where is Tillamook when I need it? They make really good Maple Nut Ice Cream. Tillamook sure isn't in Ohio. I have even had good Maple Nut by Rice Dream, but for some reason, they don't have that flavor in my area. What do Ohioans have against the yummyness of Maple Nut? For 5 years I have been looking for it wherever I go, but nobody carries it.

Am I the only one who thinks this is weird?

I had Maple walnut ice-cream once and it was divine!

Have a bowl of Goody Goody gum drops [bubble gum flavour with lollies] and you'll forget your favourite flavour every existed!

You just made me really want ice cream..... My favorite is Blue Belle Vinilla Bean, but the only place I have been able to find Blue Belle is in Texas.

I think that its a crule game the store likes to play on us becasue you can never find your favorite ice cream when you REALLY need it! And yes Ice Cream is something you NEED!

Do you have Schwan's? They have a Maple Nut Ice Cream. I love Schwan's products they are SOOO yummy and it comes to your door!

Here is a link to is http://www.schwans.com/catalog/searc...m&searchType=1

I'm wondering if that flavor has just fallen out of "vogue". My boyfriend loved a certain maker's chocolate malt ice cream... but it disappeared from store shelves quite a while ago. (I think it was Ben & Jerry's, too.)

Some of the specialty ice cream makers here in the Detroit area make Maple nut - I checked just out of curiosity. At least three that I could find - Calder Farms Dairy, Ray's Ice Cream and Stroh's-Mooney. You can buy that last one in the grocery stores around here, but I don't know if the stores carry Maple Nut. Oh, and Alinosi's. too.

So come up here on a Maple Walnut ice cream pilgrimmage. I will take you around!!!

this Chowhound topics board may help you. Don't know where in OH you live, tho'.

Did you get that maple walnut icecream from NZ Naturals? It was SO good! It reminded me of butter pecan, which is one of my favourite flavours.

I mostly just eat frozen yoghurt, it is yummier IMO.

When I visited my parents in Oregon back in August, I was able to get some Maple Nut, but that was the last time I had it. AddieBee, don't be surprised if I show up on your doorstep holding a spoon with a really desperate look on my face

You don't scare me, WW. Check some of the places in those links, tho'. I don't know where in Ohio you live, but one of these places that does make/sell Maple Nut will hopefully be nearby! Good luck!

ETA: Ray's is good stuff. And they do ship 3 gal containers.

Fresh N Fruity does an awesome frozen yoghurt and with the heart foundation tick who's to argue? YUM!

I looked at Ray's website - I am tempted

I told my hubby that I could get 3 gal of Maple Walnut for $35 plus shipping and he had the temerity to ask, "and what are you going to do with 3gal of Ice Cream?" Hello? What do you think I would do with 3gal of Ice Cream

Maybe he's wondering where you will store the other 2 gallons once you eat the 1st gallon in one sitting (to make up for lost time) and explode?

If it helps - my favorite flavor of ice cream is readily available everywhere here, but I'm on a doctor induced diet so I can't have any!

I think you're right about different flavors going out of vogue. Several years ago I found Nacho Cheese-flavored Cheetos on the local grocery shelves. They were fantastic! The first time I bought them I actually ate the entire bag in one sitting. I haven't been able to find them in ages, and the folks at the stores just give me funny looks when I ask for them.

Schwan's has Maple Nut, as does this brand Mooney's that most of our grocery stores carry.

I think it is one that has fallen out of vogue. I remember years ago it could be found everywhere and several different brands had their version of it. I love Black Walnut ice cream and it used to be really easy to find. Every once in a great while I will see a pint of Haagen Daz Black Walnut. When I do see it I always pay the outrageous price for a pint. Often there is only one pint of it in the store freezer. That's probably a good thing for my pocketbook.

Is Schwan's in Michigan? I didn't think so... just maybe not around here.

I checked - they will deliver or ship to MY house - so WW, I would think they would ship or deliver to YOUR house. And you can get smaller containers than Ray's 3 gals!! Point, click, eat!!
post #18 of 23
You can go to Schwans' web site and type in your zip code and they will tell you if they deliver to you. I am pretty sure Schwan's is every where though. I love there food I miss living at home becasue I would order things from the Schwan man and make Mom and Dad pay

Geez - thanks guys!

Are there any Kwik Trip gas station/convenience stores in your area? When I lived in Wisconsin, the Kwik Trips there sold the most delicious Maple Nut ice cream I've ever eaten. I don't usually even like maple nut ice cream, but that stuff was to die for! It even had cashews in it.

Now I'M craving the stuff!

Ben & Jerry's has a section on their website of the Flavor Graveyard or something like that. I just know my favorite ice cream in the whole world has been there for years. It was Bovinity Divinity - milk and white chocolate ice cream with little white and milk chocolate cow-shaped pieces. It was so good!

But I have to say...you guys have Tofts in Ohio, and we don't have that here in Colorado! We always have to get ice cream when we go out there, and one time my father and I bought a 1/2 gallon with no way to store it. We shared with the team, of course, but it didn't take long for that to be gone!

my favorite is there, too - Wavy Gravy - caramel & cashew Brazil nut ice cream with a chocolate-hazelnut-fudge swirl & toasted almonds
they also made a maple nut one - The Full VerMonty! maple ice cream w/a caramel swirl & pecans.
