    Haagen Dazs Vanilla: cream, skim milk, sugar, egg yolks, vanilla extract

    That's just mainstream stuff. You can get local deliciousness produced from organic ingredients, too: http://biritecreamery.com/who-we-are

    Your pie is missing some ingredients. Ice cream can be individual or communal. Pie is one pan of the same crap, regardless of what any one person might want. It's durability in this case is a liability. Ice cream may melt, but only if you dilly dally. So, maybe pie is for the lazy and slow-witted?

    As for pie charts, why would you want to ruin your dessert with thoughts of torturous PowerPoint sessions? You need to get out more.

    I eat ice cream multiple times a week, but I'm pretty sure I'd take pie 90% of the time if given the choice. Not sure where that leaves me.

    Also, I've recently discovered that ice cream can be next-level in a way I didn't know existed. There's a place here in Atlanta that has the most perfectly-consistent ice cream I've ever had. No gritty ice feel, not mushy, just perfect. It's almost like the consistency of yogurt, where it's perfectly creamy and uniform, only it maintains its form like ice cream. They also have a lot of those "gourmet" flavors that are great (salted caramel :drool:), but they're good about having traditional ones on hand, too.

    Does gelato count as ice cream? I do like gelato a lot.

    There's a reason kids are screaming at ice cream - it's hardening their parents' arteries and causing them to die.

    Ice cream is the Scottie Pippen of desserts. Great as a complementary player, not that great as the star. Does anyone order ice cream for dessert at a restaurant?

    And the contrast in temperatures makes ice cream an ideal partner for pie, not cake. Except for the molten chocolate cake with the gooey center that a lot of restaurants like to serve.

    I love pie, and I love ice cream. I love them together and apart. For me pie is more of a special dessert, whereas I eat ice cream every day. Right now there are a half dozen assorted pints in the freezer. You can good pretty good ice cream on any block in NYC. GOOD Pie is something special, not easily obtained, and makes the occasion a special one.

    That being said, we had some pretty darn good ice cream up in Maine last summer: Round Top on the Damariscatta peninsula (Grape Nuts:happy:! ), and Goose Rocks Dairy from down near Kennebunkport :drool:

    That looks wonderful. But we don't need to put B&J down to bring others up. Positivity, yo.

    I hear you... but B&J is just not what it used to be... pretty good ice cream. Mostly marketing now and not quite what it was before they sold to Unilever.
