Ann (Art Director): OK, I’m really boring; I like vanilla with caramel topping. (editor’s note: we like to call it “classic.” J)
Kathleen (Associate Editor): Around the holidays, my go-to’s are peppermint or Blue Bell’s Pumpkin Spiced Pecan. But any other time, it’s all about chocolate. (My favorite is peanut butter-chocolate or Brusters’ s’mores.) My topping of choice is usually dark chocolate syrup.
Becky (Editorial Coordinator): As soon as school is out, ice-cream-making season begins at our house. My son loves to make mint chocolate chip, but my favorite is honey ice cream. It takes me back to my favorite ice-cream parlor on the lake where I grew up; it was the place to go after a long hot day! For toppings, I love hot fudge and strawberries—sometimes I skip the ice cream and just eat the hot fudge and strawberries!
Nancy (Copy Editor): I, of course, don’t make any of this myself, but I love fresh (homemade) peach ice cream with pizzelles.
Tracey Runnion: I love chocolate chip mint with hot fudge. Yum!
Faith (Assistant Editor): I try to have a diet filled with greens, so I eat mint chocolate chip ice cream. (Chocolate comes from beans too, right?) And they say you’re supposed to eat colorful meals, so I put sprinkles on my ice cream.
Haley (Editorial Assistant): Easy! Swiss chocolate ice cream with toffee bits and sliced almonds.
