5 Best Chocolate Ice Cream Flavor Variations to Try

What's better than chocolate ice cream? [For the love of god, don't say "vanilla ice cream."] Chocolate ice cream mixed with other goodies! If you're looking for a little crunchy, chewy, salty, or sweet variation in your cocoa creams, check out these five flavors: 5. Double Fudge Brownie (Dreyer's).

Craving a brownie sundae but don't have the energy to go through that labor-intensive process of constructing one yourself? Pick up a half-gallon of Dreyer's chocolate ice cream studded with soft chunks of brownie and fudge swirls.

4. Chocolate Therapy (Ben & Jerry's).

Although B&J's "plain" chocolate ice cream is relatively mild and therefore unsatisfying to the true chocoholic, their version mixed with chocolate cookies and chocolate pudding sufficiently amps the cocoa factor. That doesn't mean, however, you can't add top your bowl with some hot fudge. 3. Chocolate Peanut Butter (Blue Bell).

Depending on how you scoop, you might just end up with more peanut butter than chocolate, so ample are the thick ribbons of creamy nut. The love affair between chocolate and peanut in this ice cream so intense, you may need to take a break before finishing off that pint.

2. Chocolate Chocolate Chip (Häagen-Dazs).

Häagen-Dazs bills this flavor as "truly a decadent ice cream experience," and such a description, while accurate, does not adequately testify to its intense bursts of deep, almost bitter chocolate notes. Each mouthful provides an ephemeral crunch from the dark chocolate chip, which proceeds to melt and infuse the already serious cocoa cream base with more chocolate.

1. Oreo Cookies & Creme Chocolate (Breyers)

It's hard to go back to regular cookies and cream after sampling Breyer's chocolate version, which thanks to the A-OK official partnership with OREO, uses large pieces of real deal chocolate cookie sandwiches. And wonder of wonder, miracles of miracles, this ice cream only packs 4 grams of fat per ½ cup serving.
