The Top Ten
1 Cookies N' Cream

If Oreo and ice cream were like some epic collaboration album, it would be one of the best collaboration albums of all time.

This flavor is great!

Cookies and Cream is the greatest ice cream I've ever had. It's vanilla ice cream with crushed Oreo cookies mixed together. Put them in a blender and enjoy. Thanks for letting me share my opinion.

Cookies and cream is the best flavor ever because it's just like cookies in milk. It is so creamy and delicious that it tastes kind of like whipped cream in your mouth.

The cookie chips inside the cream are so realistic, they don't even taste like fake Oreos. Maybe they are real Oreos?

2 Mint Chocolate Chip

I can eat this flavor any day. It's truly delicious and a childhood favorite. If you get all-natural mint, it's even better.

Also, if it's green, that's food coloring. If it's white, it's natural. Natural tastes better and has me feeling better after I eat it.

My entire family adores this flavor. It's rejuvenating, yet sugary at the same time. The minty taste adds to the coldness of the ice cream, whereas the chocolate chips improve the dessert's sweetness.

The other flavors like strawberry, mango, yam, durian, coconut, vanilla, chocolate, coffee, red bean, lychee, orange, grape, or even caramel are just... well, plain and normal. In my humble opinion, all the other incredible flavors like Cookies N' Cream, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Rock 'n Pop Swirl Sherbet, Birthday Cake, or Rocky Road will never be comparable to Mint Chocolate Chip.

Maybe it's because I think that ice creams taste better with a minty sweetness. I like to eat it when I'm feeling down or bored. It's nice to enjoy along with a book, some music, games, or TV, on a rainy day, in a comfy bed, with an air conditioner and some privacy. All to yourself.

Thanks for voting for Mint Choc Chip, guys!

3 Chocolate

Chocolate ice cream is basically the only ice cream flavor I will eat. It is honestly the best flavor. Because it is so simple, the chocolatey flavor can really be highlighted. Unless you don't like chocolate, this is basically a win-win.

I love the variety such a simple flavor can have. Chocolate ice cream can be really rich and dense or can be milky and light. Either way, it is an amazing flavor. I like it plain so the flavor can really shine through.

It's like frozen heaven. I always choose chocolate when I go to an ice cream shop, especially Cold Stone. I love it there!

I always pick the darkest chocolate, and some places even add brownies and chocolate chips or fudge. It's just the best thing ever.

4 Vanilla

Vanilla is ice cream. Everything else is a flavor that is compared to vanilla because it is the standard bearer.

Vanilla should be #1.

If you say vanilla is bad, buy a pint and taste it. Then, tell me to my face that it doesn't taste good. It's the perfect ice cream flavor.

It is the authentic ice-cream flavor that elevates this flavor to a higher ranking. The simplicity of the flavor is what makes your taste buds crave more. It's original. It's nostalgic. It's more than just basic. It's the mother of all flavors.

From a scientific evolutionary perspective, we are drawn to the taste of simple things without many additives that make these things lose their taste. The taste of regular vanilla ice cream is the closest thing to our natural taste buds, as it is the closest to the taste of the most essential nutrient for all mammals: milk. Vanilla is by far the most original form of ice cream that reminds us of simple times, of comfortable lives, of VANILLA ICE CREAM!

5 Cookie Dough

Cookie Dough ice cream has always been one of my top favorite ice cream flavors. It's tied with Cookies and Cream. These two ice creams are just so good and always make my mouth water. I don't know what it is about them!

The best flavor ever. The creaminess of the vanilla, the sweetness of the chocolate chips, and the comforting cookie dough. Amazing.

Best ice cream ever! As a kid, who didn't love eating raw cookie dough and vanilla ice cream? It's the perfect combination of cookies and ice cream without having hard chunks of actual cookies.

6 Strawberry

Strawberries are, honestly, my favorite fruit. Every time I have an option for ice cream, strawberry is the best.

Creamy and delicious, I love strawberry ice cream. No one can change that for me.

Strawberry rocks in my opinion, which is your favorite?

Strawberry ice cream is the best. There are no other flavors that I would choose. It's got a creamy taste with sweet strawberries to make it better!

Everyone else in my family likes different flavors, but really, strawberry is the best!

One of the BEST ICE CREAMS EVER! I love it so much that I always pick this flavor at the ice cream shop. My mom likes chocolate, and she keeps buying chocolate, but I'm like, Nah, strawberry's better.

And I'll never stop buying strawberry ice cream whenever I see it at markets and shops.

7 Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough ice cream has always been one of my top favorite ice cream flavors. It's tied with Cookies and Cream. These two ice creams are just so good and always make my mouth water.

I don't know what it is about them!

Many people say this about their favorite ice cream flavor, but this time, it's true. Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough is the best ice cream flavor, seemingly ever! I have no idea how Cookie Dough is ranked higher than this. Adding the chocolate chips makes everything better: the taste, the crunch, the experience!

The taste is simply like taking vanilla ice cream, which is basic, and throwing in the good stuff, such as chocolate chips and yummy cookie dough! What's better than that? Nothing, in my opinion.

8 Rocky Road

Wait. Chocolate ice cream is just Rocky Road without marshmallows and almonds. Cookie dough is disgusting in large quantities like that. Chocolate chips? How about chocolate ice cream with marshmallow? Vanilla is sort of bland. Strawberry is good, yes, but not as good as this at all.

That leaves Cookies & Cream and Mint Chocolate Chip, and even with those above this, it should be in third place, but it is in eighth. What?

Dreyer's Rocky Road (the original Rocky Road ice cream) is still the best of the best. It has a perfect blend of perfectly roasted almonds and "how-do-they-do-it" squishy marshmallows. If there are marshmallows in Rocky Road, they are usually very hard from being frozen.

And don't go for Rocky Road wannabes that only offer a marshmallow ribbon - that's not true Rocky Road. Rocky Road is chocolate ice cream perfected!

9 Neopolitan

This is my favorite flavor! I remember yesterday when my dad brought home a tin of Neapolitan ice cream. My sisters were already trying to make a bowl.

They only got two scoops, while I scooped out ALL the ice cream out of that tin!

Why? Why do you do this? Why 12? Why not 1? I mean, seriously, Neapolitan has three flavors in one. Do you want me to name them? Okay. Chocolate, strawberry, and vanilla.

If you don't like a flavor but your friends do, well, get this type of ice cream in a tub, and you and your friends can chow down. And if you get this on an ice cream cone, it's like having three scoops. And it is delicious too.

10 Coffee

I am highly disappointed in this list. Literally, the best ice cream flavor ever isn't even in the top 10. Yet, a flavor that tastes like complete garbage, such as strawberry, is in the top 5.

And what is cookies and cream doing at number 1? It's a great flavor, but it can be too overwhelming at times.

This flavor is extremely exceptional. Only coffee lovers tend to like this flavor. The ice cream tastes amazing and is generally appreciated by people with an open mind. I love this flavor so much!

This should be number 1. What is the best flavor of ice cream in the entire universe doing down here? I think everyone should at least try coffee ice cream once or twice because, once you do, you're going to want more.

The Contenders
11 Birthday Cake

Uh, hello?! Ever heard of birthday cake? It's only the greatest kind of ice cream (closely behind cheesecake) of all time. The taste has the perfect balance of sweetness and coldness.

Chocolate is overrated, as well as vanilla. Think of the flavors that actually taste good, not what everyone else picks!

Birthday cake ice cream is amazing. The kind I get is this delicious vanilla ice cream with cake frosting inside. It is DELICIOUS. I suggest you try it. It is amazing!

Blue Bell Birthday Cake is the best ice cream ever assembled by human beings. If you disagree, you have never eaten it and you need to go to a doctor for never trying it.

12 Peanut Butter Cup

Oh my gosh, Peanut Butter Cup ice cream is so delectable! The rough deliciousness of peanut butter tastes tantalizing when paired with delectable ice cream. Taste this transcendent type!

I love peanut butter cups. I love ice cream. Combining them is heaven's gift to me. Peanut Butter Cup, or any peanut butter ice cream, came from the gods themselves.

Amazing is all I can say. Although, you do have to try a few. There are some that just don't do the flavor justice.

13 Caramel

Caramel is the best ice cream, and every time I have it, it blows my mind! Caramel ice cream could never get old. It's THE BOMB! I could eat it all day. I'd just have to brush my teeth REALLY well.

I love to get the last scrape at the bottom with tons of caramel. I hate thinking about ice cream when I have none.

THE BEST! No question. Melts in your mouth and tastes like heaven! Can be eaten in all four seasons. Everyone loves caramel!

14 Chocolate Chip

I love chocolate chip because it's mostly vanilla, with just enough chocolate to make it perfect!

When you just don't want vanilla, but you also don't want chocolate, chocolate chip is perfection!

One of the most classic flavors of all time: chocolate chip. You've got to love it.

15 Cake Batter

Okay, what the heck is this doing at 11? It is really, really good with a creamy vanilla and butter kick to it. Whenever I go to Time Out Frozen Yogurt, I usually get cake batter. It tastes a little like cake, and I adore cake.

It is one of those flavors that are not that common at ice cream stores. I love it more than chocolate and cookies and cream. It has that yummy taste similar to cake frosting. I love cake batter, and it is my favorite.

Cake batter or birthday cake, whatever you like to call it, is by far the best ice cream I have ever tasted in my entire life. Marble Slab and any other place that sells it is the place to go. Perfect, perfect, perfect.

My sister worked at an ice cream place during the summer, and I told her to tell me when they had birthday cake ice cream in. That stuff is seriously the best!

16 Mint

How is this number 5?! Mint is the best of the best! It's so refreshing! Unlike chocolate, you don't have to have a glass of water after eating it.

It's so good that I have to hide the mint ice cream, or else it will be gone the next day. Mint cheers me up when I'm upset, and I eat it all year round!

Mint is super refreshing! It's calming and unique, unlike many other ice cream flavors. Only people with truly accepting taste buds like this flavor. It's sweet yet not too sweet, like vanilla or chocolate.

It's perfect with chocolate chips to make an exceptional balance of flavors!

17 Cotton Candy

If you live in California and you love cotton candy ice cream, you won't believe this stuff at Ventura County Harbor. Dude, you need to go to Coastal Cone and try their cotton candy. I literally think they scooped it from the clouds of heaven.

I also heard they sell the same thing in Rite Aid. Look for it in the ice cream section. It's called Thrifty's Cotton Candy. Literally scooped from the clouds in heaven. Dude, you need to try it.

I just had this today, and I really enjoyed it. I haven't had this in a long time because I used to have it all the time when I was little. I recommend trying this underrated flavor.

It's way better than actual cotton candy, which is too sticky and difficult to eat.

18 Chocolate Fudge Brownie

This amazing ice cream was part of my childhood, first from Ben and Jerry's, and now in my father's kitchen. This is my all-time favorite flavor. Once you put hot fudge on it, I am in chocolate heaven!

I am hoping Dad can make this ice cream for my birthday.

Should totally be in the #1 spot! It is basically chocolate on chocolate. How could you not love it!

I love this flavor despite it basically being diabetes ice cream.

19 Chocolate Peanut Butter

I'm not sure if this and 'Peanut Butter Cup' count as the same flavor. Either way, peanut butter and ice cream are a match made in heaven.

YUMMY! This ice cream is the best. Try it! You will instantly fall in love.

My mouth is starting to water already.

20 Strawberry Cheesecake

YES! It is the best flavor! I never get tired of it, and it's very reliable. I also like cherry cheesecake-flavored ice cream, but strawberry is good too!

If you haven't tried it yet, you definitely need to. It usually tastes just like cheesecake, which I love!

I had this in a gourmet shop with my friends, and it was creamy and sweet with swirls of strawberry in it. There were four of us, and three had that flavor. I usually don't like cheesecake.

It's a bit too cheesy. However, you couldn't even taste it, and it was DELICIOUS.

The creamy, rich cheesecake ice cream, with fresh strawberries and graham cracker bits, is the best flavor ever!

21 Butter Pecan

Oh my gosh, my mom bought this stuff for one of my family members' birthdays, and it wasn't the usual Breyers ice cream that she buys. It was so good! I don't remember the name, but what I can recall is that it was in a white container. The flavor was different. I can't really describe it well, but it was, I guess you could say, like heaven. I think it was the 365 brand or something. I don't remember.

I didn't see this one on the list. How could that be? Butter pecan or butter pecan?

Whichever way you want to pronounce it, your tongue will dance in your mouth. Get some!

22 Moose Tracks

I used to eat this when I was a little kid, and that trend has continued into my young adulthood.

This is an amazing flavor. The combination of the fudge and mini peanut butter cups is awesome!

It has so many good flavors: nut, caramel, chocolate, and vanilla ice cream!

23 Bubble Gum

I love bubble gum. It brings back so many childhood memories! Hands down, bubble gum ice cream is the best. Even after you're finished, you can still blow a bubble while you dump your cup in the trash.

Bubble gum is the best ever! When you're having trouble deciding what flavor to choose, try bubble gum. You can never go wrong with it.

Same answer for cotton candy. I'm the same person who said cotton candy looks tasty, even though I've never tried it.

24 Double Fudge Brownie

How is this number 17? Double fudge brownie is the bomb. This should be number one! A chocolate lover's dream.

It's so creamy, so chewy, and so delicious! There are so many good variations of this flavor. My two favorite desserts put together, and a close second is just normal chocolate.

It is the best ice cream of all time! It's at the top of my list, tied with Chocolate Chip Marshmallow ice cream, which is also very delicious. Never, ever miss this flavor in the ice cream store!

So tasty, and the fudge texture is great! The brownie is still warm and gooey with the ice cream.

25 French Vanilla

It's a classic twist on regular vanilla. It adds a little flavor. It's so plain and so good!

Only flavor made with real eggs. Most expensive to make. Yum, yum!

Best EVER, but it's the same as vanilla. Should be #1!
