Genetics and favorite ice cream? IDK...
« on: Wed Jul 10, 2019 - 19:33:44 »
Just got an update from 23 and Me. They say I'm genetically predisposed to prefer chocolate ice cream over vanilla. I will not argue with them about my chocolate addiction, but when it comes to favorite ice cream, I've always been a butter pecan girl, which is vanilla based ice cream. I do love a good chocolate ice cream, but butter pecan has been my favorite since I was a teen. (It was also my grandfather's fave)

Interesting.

Do you think it may be because it was your grandfather's favorite ?

I have not gotten that update from 23 and me, but if I do i let you know if they are right.

I just got that update about 10 minutes before I posted, so maybe you'll get yours soon.

Maybe it does have something to do with my grandfather's favorite. My mom and dad both prefer vanilla based ice cream, too.

Just found this-

Butter pecan
You are someone who gets things done perfectly without leaving a single mess! Apart from that, you are someone who takes charge of things and are aggressively into sports. Detail-oriented, ethical, orderly, careful, logical, planner, moral, intelligent, respectful, serious, calculative are some of your wonderful traits. You abide by the rules, pay attention to details and never leave work undone. Sometimes, you may find it hard to express your true feelings to others and be overly confident or are a little too much of a perfectionist.

That's fairly accurate. I'm definitely a perfectionist, a planner, and hate messes. However, I don't have a problem expressing my true feelings at all.  rofl

There’s another flavor other than Jamoca Almond Fudge?

I get different reports other then my mom so  ::shrug::

But I am with Jaime.

B & Rs  Jamoca Almond Fudge is my all time favorite , but must be b & Rs.......( since they stopped Pistachio Almond Fudge 4 decades ago.)

But if eating other brands, it would definitely be mint chocolate chip for me.....

Then Turkey Hills, PA made... Dutch chocolate  rofl

Am I the only Blue Bell lover here?

Moo-llenium Crunch, most definitely. Especially the rarely seen Chocolate Moo-llenium Crunch. ::smile::

I like my ice cream unlicked.  Perhaps Blue Bell should start putting on a tamper proof ring of plastic around their ice cream.

For years I was really stuck on Blue Bell's cherry vanilla flavor, but they either stopped making it or my local stores don't carry it anymore.

I'm with TC, though. Blue Bell needs to start sealing those cartons if they want my business.

And the 23 and me results are in and they nailed it.

I prefer chocolate...

Which explains my affection for

Quoting myself......

"B & Rs  Jamoca Almond Fudge is my all time favorite , but must be b & Rs.......( since they stopped Pistachio Almond Fudge 4 decades ago.)

But if eating other brands, it would definitely be mint chocolate chip for me.....

Back in the day I would always , ALWAYS, order, if Jamoca or Pistachio Almond FUDGE was not available....I would order
mint chocolate chip with fudge or chocolate syrup on it............... ::yummy::

OH my............. Just does not cut it on a lower triglyceride diet  ::eek:: ::cryingtears:: ::cryingtears:: ::cryingtears:: ::eek::

Oh really??
Well, for the sake of my low carb diet, I hope y'all keep Blue Bell Cherry Vanilla down there and not let it creep across the Red River, again! I'd hate to try to make up for lost time.

No doubt many companies are going to start sealing their food products for sale on the grocery shelves.

At this point I have to wonder why it wasn't done to start with a long time ago. Oops, never mind. I know why. It costs money.

But, what about fresh produce? Are they going to have to start putting them in sealed containers to keep these idiots from tampering?

Utterly ridiculous. The best scenario is that this trend dies down quickly.

Speaking of fresh produce-

Just yesterday I saw a video clip of a woman who had crawled into the lettuce section of the produce dept and was massaging the lettuce onto various body parts. (umm, and she was ugly, so there was nothing sexy about it, lol) So this craze is spreading and not limited to ice cream. They're going to have to start putting produce in sealed baggies/containers of some sort. I was going to say maybe more security cameras in stores would help discourage it some, but these nuts are doing this for attention and apparently don't mind getting caught and charged with food tampering.

People are weird.

That's a good one but I seldom pick the same flavor over and over. The last waffle cones we had were with chocolate peanut butter, big chunks of peanut butter throughout the ice cream, so good!

My wife likes German Chocolate Cake at Baskin & Robbins, but they only have it every so often.

In case you guys have never tried it, this is some good stuff:

They sell it at Wal-Mart and United stores.
