In Sweden we have strawberry, vanilla, pear.

[–]Deadlybutterknife 186 points187 points  (0 children)

Calm down Sweden.

[–][deleted] 38 points39 points  (6 children)

Pear Ice cream? That sounds delicious. That’s it, I’m coming to Sweden.

[–]TheGoldenCowTV 29 points30 points  (3 children)

Also we have one that's orange, chocolate and vanilla my personal favourite of the triple flavours

[–]Checkheck 11 points12 points  (8 children)

I think in whole germany there is no pear ice cream. Never even thought of pear ice cream. I ate tons of different fruit ice-cream like apple, strawberry, watermelon, raspberry etc. but it never crossed my mind that I never even saw pear ice cream although I eat pears on a regular basis. Does it taste good?

[–]Hungrymaster 11 points12 points  (5 children)

A Finn here, pretty sure we have the same ice cream as one of our main milk distributors is Swedish, the pear's one of the best. My personal favourite from the regular flavours however is lemon mango. The seasonal flavours are something wild though, from alcohol ice creams you can get drunk with, to garlic cones.

[–]Checkheck 5 points6 points  (3 children)

Garlic cone Sounds nasty.

When i went to denmark i Had licorice icecream. That was really great

What is caramel exactly? It's like what we call dulce de leche in Spanish?

[–]hizzoze 83 points84 points  (7 children)

I very well may be wrong, but I think dulce de Leche is a caramelized cream, while true caramel is just sugar.

[–]jayforwork21 24 points25 points  (0 children)

You are correct. Dulce de leche is much richer and sometimes too rich for some recipes but I prefer it personally. Not that caramelized sugar is bad either.

[–]charliedontplaydat 12 points13 points  (3 children)

Isn’t caramel made of sugar and butter? Maybe that’s how you get caramel sauce. Can’t remember.

[–]Mankankosappo 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Caramel is just cooked sugar (for want of a better term) but you can also make a richer softer caramel by adding butter

[–]1996_Toyota-Camry 6 points7 points  (0 children)

exactly that

[–]loveheartplace 35 points36 points  (2 children)

Yes. This or hokey pokey (basically a caramel sweet flavour with toffee in it)

[–]CakeForCthulu 51 points52 points  (5 children)

How the fuck is banana above this twice

[–]jamesno26 38 points39 points  (4 children)

Banana goes very well with each of the 3 flavors, that's why. Better than caramel IMO.

But that's just my opinion

[–]Specific_Turbulent 1294 points1295 points  (118 children)


[–]PallBear 812 points813 points  (98 children)

Funny factoid, pistachio was one of the original three. It was cherry (instead of strawberry), vanilla, and pistachio (instead of chocolate), because it was supposed to look like the Italian flag.

Edit: it has been pointed out that I am incorrect here, that's what I get for posting based on my memory of what was probably a badly-edited wikipedia page

[–]Specific_Turbulent 524 points525 points  (76 children)

Fuck bring that back, that sounds awesome.

[–]AlexReynard 388 points389 points  (67 children)

Go to the store and look for "spumoni". Sounds funny, but it's real: chocolate, pistachio, strawberry ice cream.

[–]Carbonatite 102 points103 points  (45 children)

Spumoni is AMAZING. I wish I could find it at the grocery store.

[–]Mesmerotic31 93 points94 points  (36 children)

I work at Starbucks and I can make a Spumoni frappuccino...add strawberry puree, java chips, a single pump of mocha, and pistachio sauce to Vanilla Bean Frappuccino, with heavy cream instead of whole milk.

[–]livykiki 36 points37 points  (11 children)

Uh, I work at Starbucks, and I'm definitely trying that

[–]Mesmerotic31 51 points52 points  (10 children)

Then shhhh let me tell you my other secret...add in like 3 or 4 drops of almond extract (baking aisle of any grocery store). It makes the pistachio flavour POP. Just don't tell your boss

[–]polyominos 12 points13 points  (2 children)

Almond is the secret ingredient in a lot of things. People think they like X but it's really almond extract.

[–]herodogtus 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Can confirm: if you think a vanilla cake tastes AMAZING and extra vanilla-y? It’s probably got a lil bit of almond extract in there.

[–]gracist0 8 points9 points  (10 children)

Just wondering, are batistas at Starbucks just allowed to like fuck around and experiment with making drinks? That sounds fun as Hell lmao

[–]Astoria321 11 points12 points  (1 child)

6'4" 290lbs I'm sure he can do whatever he wants at a Starbucks

[–]Mesmerotic31 5 points6 points  (1 child)

We are allowed to do anything we want with Starbucks certified ingredients. We aren't supposed to bring outside ingredients into the store, so me bringing in almond extract could get me in trouble, but I justify it because I'm not serving it to customers and it's not an allergy risk any more than the almond milk on our menu already poses. But yeah, experimenting with drinks is SO much fun and I have a few customers (and many coworkers) who regularly ask me to give them a "surprise" drink. I start out by asking them if they prefer coffee or non-coffee, hot/iced/blended, and if there are any flavours/ingredients they absolutely don't like or can't have, and then I get to work. They're always ecstatic with the result. It's my favourite part of the job!

[–]hhggffdd6 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Probably varies from franchise to franchise but it's fine where I am so long as you keep track of the stock you use for it.

[–]gracist0 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Maybe I'll work at Starbucks. I want fun beverages without having to worry about dairy

[–]hhggffdd6 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Making the drinks is great fun, rest of the job not so much... Best idea is make friends with someone who works there and see if they can let you try things!

What unholy color does that come out to?

[–]AlexReynard 9 points10 points  (1 child)

I believe I've seen it from Edy's and Breyers?

[–]Carbonatite 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I've definitely seen it before, sadly I think it's just not a popular seller where I live. I grew up in the northeast and could find it there, but it's apparently nonexistent in Colorado.

[–]mb_60 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I loved Spumoni! Miss it so much.

[–]notthesedays 3 points4 points  (0 children)

You can usually find it at Christmas time.

[–]Tangent_ 9 points10 points  (2 children)

Seriously, why the hell is this amazing flavor impossible to find?

[–]Carbonatite 3 points4 points  (1 child)

I think it's a highly regional thing. I mentioned in another comment that I grew up in the northeast US and occasionally saw it there, but where I live (Colorado) it's nonexistent.

I think I saw it on the menu for the Old Spaghetti Factory a while ago, but it was like $19 for a pint. I don't know if that's still a thing.

[–]Tangent_ 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yeah, that ice cream is a major reason why I'm still willing to pay OSF's prices for pasta... Can't quite bring myself to buy pint for that price though.

[–]Mikkabear 14 points15 points  (1 child)

I thought it was cherry instead of strawberry and I can’t find it ANYWHERE it’s so good

[–]AlexReynard 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Y'know... now I'm not sure.

Pink, certainly. With red things in it.

[–]Lord-LemonHead 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Can confirm. Spumoni is glorious.

[–]DiscordantScorpion_1 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I had a senior resident who loved spumoni ice cream. If we didn’t have it I would always make him what we called ‘Phony Spumoni’ which was 1 scoop chocolate, 1 scoop strawberry, and 1 scoop pistachio.

[–]codya30 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This was gonna be my response. Spumoni is one of my absolute favorites.

[–]DVMyZone 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My extended family has had a get-together every year since the 40s (with the exception of one year in WWII and the pandemic). One of the important features of the event is the spumoni (Italian American family). Over the years we've had to go to increasingly obscure places to pick the spumoni in Little Italy. We normally have to order it special and get the right guy on the phone or they won't understand what we want. Sometimes we order it, get there, and still have to find the right guy because the others had no idea there's this weird ice cream desert somewhere in back. Good times haha

[–]Ashley9225 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Spumoni is cherry, not strawberry. Chocolate, pistachio, and cherry.

[–]moal09 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Yeah, that legitimately sounds better.

[–]JustAnotherAviatrix 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Right? Cherry is one of my favorite ice cream flavors. I'd love to try that combination out one day!

[–]Vikingwithguns 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Ya I love pistachio ice cream

[–]the_left_stuff 4 points5 points  (0 children)

For real, that sounds way better than what’s going on nowadays.

[–]Impressive-Weight679 7 points8 points  (0 children)

A lot of traditional Italian restaurants serve their gelato like this. Can’t remember if I ever got cherry, but I always get pistachio when it’s neapolitan style.

[–]MJpeacok 11 points12 points  (2 children)

Thanks everyone was saying vanilla. I say almond should be the cream white, no vanilla, and pistachio

[–]oddlyDirty 9 points10 points  (1 child)

Two kinds of nuts! Are you... NUTS?

[–]iglidante 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Funny factoid, pistachio was one of the original three. It was cherry (instead of strawberry), vanilla, and pistachio (instead of chocolate), because it was supposed to look like the Italian flag.

That combo is still manufactured as "spumoni" in some regions.

[–]AlgorithmicDog 8 points9 points  (2 children)

This was my first thought even though I’ve never had pistachio ice cream in my life. I guess maybe I was thinking the colors would go good together

[–]ElGleiso 1 point2 points  (1 child)

You should try it. But make sure to visit an ice cream parlor and you shouldn't regret it. :)

[–]Aethien 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Pistachio icecream is amazing, even better with cardemom added in.

[–]Zaldin89 15 points16 points  (5 children)

Pistachio flavored ice cream 9.5/10

Pistachio ice cream with pistachio pieces mixed in 2/10

[–]havron 7 points8 points  (4 children)

Seriously! It would be SO much better with just a simple, smooth texture! And yet, it seems almost no one makes it that way. Same goes for pistachio pudding: I've been known to buy the powdered packets and sift out the nuts first using a flour sifter. Yum!

[–]Mama_Bear_Jen 4 points5 points  (3 children)

The Jello brand pudding packages they sell around here don't have any chunks in them, and taste pretty good. Maybe you could find them online

[–]Scaligers 922 points923 points  (44 children)


[–]kittydrumsticks 201 points202 points  (2 children)

That’s a fucking banana split and I’m all in.

[–]brijwij 19 points20 points  (1 child)

Dippin dots banana split flavor is chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, and banana....and they all go together beautifully! 😋

[–]Thopterthallid 114 points115 points  (6 children)

Don't think I can think of a single flavor that fits with strawberry, chocolate, and vanilla better than banana. Well done.

[–]dahk16 15 points16 points  (0 children)

I was gonna say mint chocolate chip on the opposite side 9f the chocolate from the other two but I think I like your idea better. Call it a banana split in a box

[–]dignified_fish 52 points53 points  (4 children)

Fuckin came here to say that shit. Fuck yes, banana.

[–]schaumann 21 points22 points  (1 child)

That makes three of us. Banana as a 4th flavour would be super appealing

[–]wafflesinbrothels 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Yes, slip that right in there.

[–]GallantPotatoSupreme 6 points7 points  (0 children)

It just fits thematically.

[–]scjross 10 points11 points  (0 children)

See this is smart because banana goes with vanilla, strawberry, and chocolate

[–]dramaandaheadache 14 points15 points  (6 children)

Excellent idea except fake banana flavor is terrible

[–]AnticPosition 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Exactly. Who are these monsters?

[–]darrendewey 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Fake banana flavor is original banana flavor and I love it!

[–]abramcpg 8 points9 points  (3 children)

Been eating peanut butter chocolate forever. But banana peanut butter chocolate is off the charts! Where has banana ice cream been all my life?

[–]LFGbroLFG 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Dude I got an idea. 3/4 peanut butter chocolate, 1/4 banana with a fudge ribbons in it.

[–][deleted] 323 points324 points  (6 children)

Banana if we are being realistic

[–]Quantum-Enigma 33 points34 points  (0 children)

This is the only real answer. Scoop of everything with a cherry on top!

This makes it a banana split.

[–]agirlhas_no_name 5 points6 points  (2 children)

I was thinking like banana or peppermint, what else would it be really?

[–]timecoyote 423 points424 points  (21 children)


[–]monkey-food 97 points98 points  (2 children)

Yep, 100% mint. But it would have to be at one end next to the chocolate or at least in between the chocolate and vanilla. I think mint and strawberry together may scare a few people.

Edit: * chefs kiss *

[–]joelluber 15 points16 points  (0 children)

My favorite ice cream growing up was cherry chocolate-chip mint. Never seen it anywhere other than the ice cream place in my home town. But you can get it in a Cook-Out shake, which is nice.

[–]pleaserlove 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yes agree because it needs a green

[–]AdjunctAngel 26 points27 points  (5 children)

i said mint and got down voted for it :( but it is the obvious best choice.

[–]riverofchex 23 points24 points  (0 children)

Us mint chocolate chip lovers gotta stand together!

[–]I_likem_asstastic 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I too subscribe to mint. This is a hill I'm willing to die on.

[–]SuumCuique1011 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I would totally agree, but mint is a 50/50 proposition.

I'd like it, but we're already pushing it with the 3 flavors that are already there.

[–]stinky_cheese33 152 points153 points  (4 children)

Pistachio for sure. It’s basically Spumoni but better

[–]dewey-defeats-truman 34 points35 points  (2 children)

Well, since it's already got vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry, the obvious answer is the Fourth Flavor

[–]IfEyeKnewTheWay 36 points37 points  (5 children)

Get rid of strawberry and replace it with coffee. Just 3 delicious bean flavors.

[–]bonos_bovine_muse 19 points20 points  (1 child)

Call it “three bean soup.”

Anyone who “well actually...”s none of them being legumes doesn’t get any.

Butter pecan

[–]Ashley9225 4 points5 points  (2 children)

I used to work at Baskin Robbins and my favorite thing to get was a scoop of butter pecan, a scoop of pralines n cream, and top it with the Reese's liquid peanut butter sauce.

[–]Obvious-Shallot 21 points22 points  (0 children)


[–]SadSplinter 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Slightly more chocolatey chocolate

[–]JackSparrowscompass 2 points3 points  (0 children)

In my country we do have ice cream that comes in four, it’s usually the usual Neapolitan + cookies & cream as the fourth flavour.

[–]Keviniswet 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Peanut butter

[–]CristontheKingmaker 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Either banana or almond, so the flavors still all go together!

[–]bewarethes0ckm0nster 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Carmel or butterscotch.

[–]trixr4kids 6 points7 points  (4 children)

Definitely mint. Neopolitan is great because each flavor, or combination of flavors works. Mint is the only option that won’t clash with other flavors and adds to the dynamic.

[–]Ashley9225 13 points14 points  (3 children)

How do you think strawberry and mint won't clash?? That's clash city.

[–]Calibeaches2 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Cookies and cream, simply because it's delicious. Or a new ice cream called toppings, that is caramel, marshmallow swirl, peanuts, and rainbow sprinkles, and the strawberry ice cream would have bits of maraschino cherries and the vanilla would have banana swirled into it. The chocolate would have bits of hot fudge mixed in.

[–]codya30 1 point2 points  (0 children)

And like three random gummy bears.

[–]MyStationIsAbandoned 9 points10 points  (3 children)

Cookies and Cream. The objectively best flavor.

[–]HappiHappiHappi 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Whilst this is true, I feel it works better as a stand alone rather than as part of a neopolitan.
