Is strawberry ice cream sufficiently popular as to be included with choclate and vanilla?

Asked by LostInParadise (29638points) November 22nd, 2011

The traditional Neapolitan combination is chocolate, vanilla and strawberry. I like chocolate and vanilla, but I can think of a lot of flavors I would prefer to strawberry – coffee, pecan, maple walnut and mint to name a few. How many times have you ever bought a strawberry ice cream cone?

Strawberry is definitey one of the top 3 in the UK, in fact I think it may be more popular than chocolate here. Personally I can’t bear strawberry-flavoured anything, and I can’t have ice-cream at all anyway as I’m dairy-intolerant.

As a kid, the only other ice cream flavor I remember being as popular as those three is orange sherbet, not exactly ice cream. To this day, I get thrilled if I come across a Carnation brand paper wrapped Neopolitan ice cream bar. Oh gawds, yum!

I’m not a big ice cream fan even.

Bleh. I hate strawberry… I would prefer other flavors too! I never understood the need to lump in strawberry with chocolate and vanilla.

I love strawberry. And it’s probably pretty pleasing to the masses more so than mint chocoalte chip marshmallow, ya know.

Never a cone. But my favorite is a strawberry milkshake.

Um, I’m from the UK but would choose either chocolate or vanilla (white vanilla is extra yum) over strawberry. Strawberry’s okay.

@johnpowell Love strawberry milkshakes :-)
Yes, I think it belongs in the top 3, although vanilla is my favourite

I suppose, but, my favorites are the last 4 you listed. Coffee, Butter Pecan, Maple or Black Walnut and Mint Chocolate Chip. Oh my. I have no ice cream..damn it! I just got back from grocery shopping and ALMOST bought some, but, I do have Butterscotch pudding and Pecan Pie. lol

I’ve never, not once, bought a strawberry ice cream cone. Never even considered buying a strawberry cone. Nope. No, strawberry should not be included with vanilla and chocolate. Where do I sign the petition?

I’ll trade with people. I’ll eat the strawberry and you eat the chocolate. We’ll have to share the vanilla.

Not in my book.

It doesn’t seem to be, but I think it deserves to be. Strawberry soft-serve is the best ice cream. If you think this is debatable, I guess I have to bring you to the ice cream place I go to.

I don’t like strawberry ice cream.

I won’t buy strawberry ice cream, but neopolitan is a constant occupier of my freezer, and the flavors are always equal in the carton. The three compliment each other well.

Strawberry is on a par with chocolate and vanilla in my mind. I can’t judge how it would fare in a poll.

augustlan's avatar

I don’t like strawberry or chocolate ice cream, so you can have all the Neapolitan ice cream. I don’t want my vanilla contaminated! I love strawberry milk, though.

It’s not just about flavor. You really do need a color element in that slice.

Not that it is totally relevant…But I love to make ice cream, and strawberry is the best one I make.
