Everybody enjoys a nice serving of cold, sweet, ice cream—especially in the summer. (Well, except for those of us who are lactose intolerant, maybe—but there’s even alternatives for us.) These days, there are more flavors out there than you can imagine. Have you ever asked someone what their favorite flavor and after hearing their answer thought, “Really? That’s your favorite flavor?”
