Ice cream-y, cream. Mmm. Preferably from some Gelateria in Rome or Florence. But failing that, I’ll take some Moose Tracks or Cherry Garcia. MMm. Or Phish Food.

Ice cream. Gelato. Rubarb pie. Oops. Sorry. Wrong question.

I have both in my frizzer. It just depends on my mood. Orange sherbet when I’m happy, ice cream when I’m down. I’m going for the cookies and cream right now!

Sherbert if I’m really sick, but I eat ice cream just for good ‘ol comfort and because it taste amazing.

@jonsblond: I don’t even see the word “frizzer” as being wrong anymore. It has permeated into my brain as an acceptable form of the alternate word.

“Comfort food” is synonymous with “contains fat” in my book, so ice cream FTW.

Ice cream is way more comforting, but I usually go for sorbet or frozen yogurt so I don’t get as much of a post-binge guilt trip.

Is comfort food fat free? i could see myself finding some serious comfort in munching on a celery stick with a little salt…

Sherbet! The cheaper and more colorful the better! I’ll even nuke the container for 3–5 seconds so it will scoop out easier. A plop of sherbet in cranberry juice is delicious too. You can justify it as preventive medicine for a nonexistent UTI.

ice cream! ice cream. for the reasons that it is delicious, and also for the reason @Harp mentioned (;

Definatley ice cream… Not only can it contain fruit, but chocolate too!

AstroChuck's avatar

Since I don’t know what sherbert is, I’ll take ice cream.
Now if it’s between sherbet and ice cream…

AstroChuck's avatar

I’d still go with ice cream.

@Lupin mmmmm, that sounds good. Will you make me one? Sherbet in 7-UP would be good, too. ORANGE, please.

But mainly, I’m an ice cream person.

Lupin's avatar

@jbfletcherfan Sure! I’ll make two. I might even do it tonight!

AstroChuck's avatar

Put a little vodka in there and I might switch my preference.

Gelato? Does that count?
How about frozen yogurt?

Knotmyday's avatar

Sherbet. Also goes great in holiday punch.

Not just ice cream but homemade ice cream sandwiches

cak's avatar

I love sherbet. Lime is my favorite, hands down. I do love ice cream, but have really liked sherbet more, lately.

Hazelnut Gelato

Oh boy! I just got back from a meeting of crazy people in a Gelato shop. I tasted at least a dozen kinds, and bought little scoops of five. It was fun. I like the texture, and the way it holds together. It’s expensive, but not any more expensive than Ben & Jerry’s. I had amaretto, chocolate caramel, kiwi, margarita, and chocolate malt. What fun! I feel very comfortable at the moment!
