Whenever I ask my friends what their preference in ice cream is, I mainly hear either chocolate or vanilla to be the best ice cream flavor. Unsurprisingly, I happen to agree that these two are the most craved for. After all, who can resist the tempting urge of pure indulgence that one experiences in chocolate, especially when it is served with mixed nuts? On the other hand, vanilla aficionados say their flavor is the best with no debate needed to prove it. Vanilla is so popular that a handwritten copy of its original ice cream recipe, which dates back to the late 1700s, is archived in the Library of Congress. Truth be told, both flavors have their unique, remarkable tastes that to consider them as the default flavors in ice cream is quite agreeable.
