Another flavor you may enjoy is the Peanut Butter Swirl. This flavor is a classic mix of vanilla ice cream and North Carolina peanut butter. The Raspberry Truffle is a delicious combination of raspberry sauce and vanilla ice cream. If you're looking for something a bit different, try the Coffee Fudge Truffle. The ice cream is blended with mini coffee-filled chocolates. Another classic is the Mint Chocolate Chip.
