    My favorite is chocolate peanut butter (or is it peanut butter chocolate?). Second comes vanilla ’cause it tastes so good with any kind of topping.

    My favorite purchased ice cream is Graeter’s in Cincinnati, toffee chip. My favorite homemade is a close tie between fior di latte, which is a vanilla bean gelato, or Savannah buttermint, which is a recipe of Jenni’s from Columbus, Ohio. Ice cream is my greatest weakness ๐Ÿ˜‰
