It's not possible to have just one favorite ice cream, is it? No, it most certainly isn't. Although it is definitely possible to have a slight bias towards one particular flavor of ice cream.
In my childhood days, I was totally biased towards Cassata.

We used to stay in Kanpur back then. Those who have ever lived in Kanpur will know of this place called Phool Bagh, where we could stop our cars on the central divider of the road and these boys from all those ice cream shops along the road would come running to take our orders.
Our family's order was fixed. So was the boy who used to take our order. Two hot coffees for Mom and Dad, one ThumsUp-with-ice-cream (vanilla) for my sister, and one slice of Cassata ice cream for me.
The Cassata they gave back there used to be slightly different from the one in the pic above. It was more semi-circular in shape than rectangular. The straight edge used to be a thin layer of cake while the curve was solid chocolate that would melt in your mouth! In between the two, there were so many different flavors of ice cream, along with cherries and other fruits and nuts. It was just yummy! Every bite would taste different.
Oh! I haven't had this ice cream since we left Kanpur in 2000. My sister just informed me that it is available as a cut slice now from Amul, but alas, my rotten luck! The shop in my market was out-of-stock on it today! :( That's okay though... I had butterscotch instead, which is my second favorite. :D
What's your favorite ice cream flavor? Or flavors, if they are more than one?
