Nielsen Massey Vanilla Giveaway (Winners Announced!)

Time’s up!

The winners of the Nielsen Massey Vanilla Giveaway are:

#361 Lindsay: “Plain, for sure.  No sense in ruining what is already delicious! :)

#601 Erin: “i just ran across your blog last weekend, and i am hooked!!! :)

#1086 Stacie M: “I would eat the vanilla ice cream on top of apple crisp or topped with chocolate, peanut butter and crushed up pretzels!!  YUM, wish I had some now  :)

Congratulations girls! I love all of your sweet smilies. I’ve sent ya’ll an email. Happy baking!

Oh guys, I’ve got such a fun giveaway to share with you today! Just look at all these fabulous pure vanilla products from Nielsen Massey. We’ve got three different kinds of vanilla extracts, vanilla bean paste, vanilla sugar, whole vanilla beans, exotic extracts to spice up your baking, and a cookbook filled with bakery and pastry recipes, along with new ideas for using vanilla as an essential ingredient in savory dishes. I got to go through the Neilsen Massey catalog of pure vanilla products and hand pick my favorites to share with you guys, and Nielsen Massey would like to offer this assortment to three (3) Kevin & Amanda readers today.

Nielsen Massey offers three different types of vanilla extracts processed from vanilla beans grown in three different regions across the globe. What a huge difference it made in my baking when I figured out which type of vanilla was best to use in which recipe! Here’s a quick description of the three vanillas, and how to best utilize them.

Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla. The most popular, classic, all-purpose vanilla that is perfect for a wide range of foods from baked goods to barbeque sauces.

Mexican Pure Vanilla. A creamy, spicy vanilla that’s perfect for recipes that contain chocolate, cinnamon or other warm spices. A perfect vanilla for the holidays!

Tahitian Pure Vanilla. This is my favorite of all the vanillas. The flavor is so pure and sweet, and I can definitely tell a difference when I use this vanilla. This vanilla is susceptible to heat, so it’s only for recipes that will not be cooked. It’s perfect for ice creams, fruits, sorbets, frostings, and vanilla butter.

Three (3) Kevin & Amanda readers will win the following products from Nielsen Massey.

2 oz Pure Almond Extract
2 oz Pure Chocolate Extract
2 oz Pure Coffee Extract

To read more about how to get the most out of these products, visit the Nielsen Massey product information page. You can find Nielsen Massey vanillas at Williams Sonoma, Sur La Table, and online at Amazon.com

 

How to Enter

To be entered to win the Nielsen Massey Vanilla Giveaway, all you have to do is leave a comment on this post:  Imagine you have a bowl of vanilla ice cream in front of you. Do you eat it plain or load it up with toppings? Me? I’d leave it plain but turn it into a milkshake! Yum! Kevin would add chocolate and peanut butter for sure.

Contest ends Sunday, December 11, 2011 at 8 pm CST. One entry per person, please. Winners will be chosen by Random.org and notified by email. Giveaway provided by Nielsen Massey.

 

Good luck!

32

36
Cathy barrows December 9, 2011 at 4:14 am

Vanilla all the way, but I do tend to put it a cup with some milk and make a sudo-milkshake. But as the winner, I would make a vanilla bean creme brûlée and totally pig out before my neck surgery after Christmas.

37
Mandee J December 9, 2011 at 4:15 am

Hot fudge & a cherry for me! Yum!

38
mindy December 9, 2011 at 4:16 am

Well, I have not had ice-cream in years! :( I am too obsessed with my “diet” plan, and I would not dare to touch such foods, like ice-cream. I know that you could have a small amount every once in a while, but I am like an alcoholic in a sense that I cannot just eat one bowl, give me the whole ice cream container! So, in ending.. in the days that I did eat ice cream, I loved mint chocolate chip ice cream topped with chocolate syrup! Yum!

39
Ginger Fritz December 9, 2011 at 4:16 am

My heaven is to offset the vanilla with Bananas Foster-the combo of pecans, bananas, brown sugar and rum….mmmm! And Nielsen Massey’s Vanilla Bean Paste has earned me lots of compliments-the little flecks of the vanilla bean are wonderful in anything.

40
Holly December 9, 2011 at 4:18 am

Cherry syrup, crushed pineapple and mini chocolate chips!!

41
Christine Teal December 9, 2011 at 4:19 am

Oh Yummy! These extracts look great. Since you have been talking about Tahitian vanilla, I have been wanting to try it. For the ice cream, I love–LOVE–LOVE me some peanut butter milkshake. So, I think I would probably make me a peanut butter milkshake!!

42
Terri December 9, 2011 at 4:22 am

Hot Fudge, peanuts and cherry on top!!!!!

43
Cheryl December 9, 2011 at 4:24 am

Mmmm…ice cream–my favorite! I would drizzle some chocolate sauce and add just a dolop of whipped cream from a can.

52
Lynda Taylor December 9, 2011 at 4:52 am

I like it different at different times.

When I have a big meal out, I love vanilla ice cream with hot coffee poured over!

Or sometimes at home I like my ice cream with either coffee or chocolate liqueur or even liqueur muscat. Tastes like sultanas! Yum!

53
Jaan December 9, 2011 at 4:53 am

Vanilla Ice Cream! Oh, it would have to be topped with fresh sweet Mangoes from our orchards. It would be pure heaven.

54
Sara December 9, 2011 at 4:53 am

I luuuuv vanilla, and would never change the flavor by adding a thing.

55
Alicia M December 9, 2011 at 5:00 am

I would eat the vanilla ice cream plain…but lots of it!

56
Vicki Mc December 9, 2011 at 5:01 am

usually I’m a purist, but today I was expecting a snow day and got nary an inch of snow, so I’d comfort myself with some homemade hot fudge on top!

57

63
Pam December 9, 2011 at 5:13 am

not a huge fan of ice cream unless it has hot fudge sauce, whipped cream and maybe some crushed oreos on it!

64
Tiffany December 9, 2011 at 5:16 am

I like plain unadulterated vanilla ice cream. Especially a vanilla bean ice cream. But if there were some left over pecan pie if it was close to a holiday, it’s eat it with that.

65
Dana December 9, 2011 at 5:20 am

I would love to win this. Endless possibilities of things to be made

I would make a shake with chocolate and peanut butter Yummy

68
Lora December 9, 2011 at 5:25 am

I love Vanilla ice cream – the more homemade and natural the better! For those times when plain vanilla won’t do, I like to top mine with chocolate and fresh sliced strawberries from the garden. I especially loved reading this blog today – so many new ways that I didn’t think of to eat the best flavor of ice cream! Go VANILLA!!!!

69
Amanda December 9, 2011 at 5:29 am

It depends on the brand of ice cream! If it’s Blue Bell, you’ve gotta leave it plain – anything else I load up with as much chocolate in as many forms as I possible can!

70
Billie Parrott December 9, 2011 at 5:29 am

I’d put some homemade caramel sauce on it — if I allowed myself to let
it make it into a bowl. I’m bad to eat out of the carton sometimes.

71
DJ Jaeger December 9, 2011 at 5:29 am

OH MY! I think I would gladly load it up with toppings like cherries or PB cups! That is exactly what I do when I get frozen yogurt in Cheesecake flavor…yummm! :)

72
Kevin December 9, 2011 at 5:30 am

Yum! Been doin the root-beer “float” thing lately, but spicy stuff sounds good too!

74
kate b December 9, 2011 at 5:32 am

I would add nerds and whip cream to mine

75
Carrie G. December 9, 2011 at 5:33 am

It depends. If it’s homemade then it’s best plain, but I always load store bought with chocolate syrup and sprinkles.

76
Sally December 9, 2011 at 5:34 am

I’d love the vanillas – what a great addition they’d be to my Christmas cookies!!

77
Kathy F December 9, 2011 at 5:37 am

Sherry B December 9, 2011 at 5:56 am

88
Laura C. December 9, 2011 at 5:57 am

just a little chocolate would do the trick for me :)

89
Teresa C. December 9, 2011 at 5:57 am

I would have to load it up. I’m a chocolate gal. I would add hot fudge topping (slightly warmed) and probably crushed up Oreos or Reese’s peanut butter cups. If it were my husband, because he is strange, he would dump a packet of dry hot cocoa mix on top and eat it. :)

90
Angela December 9, 2011 at 5:58 am

I would put chocolate on it!!

91
Martha S. December 9, 2011 at 5:58 am

Good old Hershey’s chocolate syrup!

97

103
Kim Pearson December 9, 2011 at 6:09 am

My mind is racing trying to decide what I would make first if I won this vanilla package! Definitely homemade ice cream..I think it would taste sooooo good with a top quality vanilla. And frosting for my melting moments cookies..yum yum! The possibilities are endless!

110
Beth December 9, 2011 at 6:13 am

Hot Caramel and some fresh raspberries. Yum!!

161
Becky December 9, 2011 at 6:55 am

162
Stacey Wilson December 9, 2011 at 6:55 am

I load it up with nuts and sprinkles and whipped cream and suddenly all my worries are gone cuz at that point Im in heaven…YUMMY

163
Tina Bowering December 9, 2011 at 6:57 am

I LOVE vanilla!! Need I say more? :)

164
Maria M. December 9, 2011 at 7:00 am

On special nights instead of having hot cocoa I would put it my coffee and just let it swirl all on it’s own.

165
Lillian December 9, 2011 at 7:01 am

I love good vanilla ice cream with whipping cream poured on top! It freezes and makes a “shell” which is yummy!

166
Luann December 9, 2011 at 7:01 am

i think i would leave my plain with no toppings…especially if it is homemade ice cream!

167
jules p December 9, 2011 at 7:01 am

If the icecream was made with this Nielsen-Massey vanilla….I would have to leave it plain. ( so I could taste the richness of that vanilla flavor)

168
Julie Patton December 9, 2011 at 7:01 am

I like to mix my ice cream in a bowl until it’s soft and smooth like a milkshake.. with just a little dab of chocolate in it so it’s barely brown… Thank you!!

169
Marie D. December 9, 2011 at 7:01 am

Mmm, hot fudge and whipped cream! What a fantastic give a way!

170
chelsea December 9, 2011 at 7:04 am

I think every day of the year I would do it differently–top with oreos, leave plain, put chocolate on top, mix with cold coffee for a shake, add whoppers? I could go on and on. I love variety. Oreos would probably come around most often…

171
Mona December 9, 2011 at 7:04 am

Plain. I’m just a simple girl, I guess.

172
janet tobler December 9, 2011 at 7:04 am

Erin N. December 9, 2011 at 7:04 am

174
cindy December 9, 2011 at 7:05 am

I always go for fruit – chopped up strawberries or fresh raspberries or chunks of banana. And THEN fudge sauce on top :)

175
Jey December 9, 2011 at 7:06 am

I’m gonna go with lots of toppings with my vanilla ice cream. Nuts, some chocolate chips, and heath bar bits. yummm!!

When I sit down with a bowl of vanilla ice cream.. I like to but Creme De Mint on it…. yummy

179
Teresa Millar December 9, 2011 at 7:09 am

If it’s really good vanilla bean ice cream – I leave it topping-free.

180

Yum! I’m a plain vanilla girl. I do love a milkshake, though, so I’d probably be with you.

183
Amy (Peppermint Mocha Mama) December 9, 2011 at 7:11 am

My favorite! I would add a drizzle of chocolate sauce, a few honey roasted peanuts and some jimmies for color.

184
Aimee M December 9, 2011 at 7:12 am

I would stick it back in the freezer and ask my brother to make his famous brownies. My favorite way to eat ice cream is on top of a hot brownie!

185
Sabrina @ LouLou Sucre December 9, 2011 at 7:12 am

Plain all the way!!! Great giveaway!!

186
Kathy Moran December 9, 2011 at 7:12 am

191
Kym J Ray December 9, 2011 at 7:17 am

If it were summer, I’d add fresh strawberries or raspberries, or than that, straight up is pretty dang good….hot fudge sauce is pretty tempting in this cold weather! Thanks for the chance….LOVED your NY pics….someday I hope to go…

192
Robin Chiang December 9, 2011 at 7:17 am

I love a bowl of vanilla ice cream with Creme de mint drizzled over the top. Just like my Grammy used to give me when I spent the night at her house.

193
Chrissy Anderson December 9, 2011 at 7:19 am

Homemade ice cream topped on warm, gooey, rich hazelnut brownies or plain brownies!! YUM

I’d eat the bowl of icecream with caramel on top!! mmmmmmm

197
April Horak December 9, 2011 at 7:21 am

I’d load that bowl up! Sprinkles, magic shell, and I’m ashamed to say, but the cherry Dr. Pepper ice cream syrup too.

I am dying thinking of all the baking I could do with those vanillas. Gah!

198
katie December 9, 2011 at 7:21 am

I would add Hershey’s chocolate syrup and a bunch of chopped up maraschino cherries! YUM!!

199
Kristen December 9, 2011 at 7:22 am

201
Sarah G December 9, 2011 at 7:25 am

I’dtop it with hot caramel sauce, peanuts, and whipped cream! Yummy!

202
Angela Watts December 9, 2011 at 7:25 am

208
CHERIE MISTRETTA December 9, 2011 at 7:29 am

I would leave my vanilla ice cream plain. I LOVE VANILLA!!!

209

Oooh, I love ice cream! I’d definitely put some hot fudge, whipped cream and cherries on it!

214
Gail December 9, 2011 at 7:34 am

Homemade vanilla just has to be eaten plain….otherwise it wouldn’t be called “vanilla” anymore.

215
Marjorie Nichta December 9, 2011 at 7:34 am

Oh how I LOVE LOVE LOVE vanilla and would equally LOVE some new vanillas to try. Thanks for the opportunity!

216
Robin P. December 9, 2011 at 7:34 am

It either gets Hershey Syrup or put into a Root Beer Float. Great Giveaway!

217
Teresa kelman December 9, 2011 at 7:35 am

Chopped slow toasted pecans!

218
Evil Pixie December 9, 2011 at 7:35 am

For me, it depends on my mood. Most of the time, I put chocolate and peanut butter on it, then sprinkle rice crispies on top. Yummy!

219
Kelly December 9, 2011 at 7:36 am

How could you choose? I’d top with whatever we had on hand: probably crumbled brownie & chocolate syrup – yum!

220
Kim Bell December 9, 2011 at 7:36 am

I love to pour pure maple syrup over my vanilla ice cream!!

221
Carole Fish December 9, 2011 at 7:37 am

Vanilla is not my flavor of ice cream but it is a great base for lots of yummies like hot fudge, peanut butter topping, pecans, whipped cream and cherries!

222
Marci Johnson December 9, 2011 at 7:37 am

I would love a little caramel drizzled on top!!

223

Vanilla is wonderful on its own, but I love to sprinkle ground vanilla beans in it. It adds that extra KICK. :)

227
jes December 9, 2011 at 7:40 am

I would make a PB&J shake! The yummiest thing I have ever encountered :)

228
Sarah D. December 9, 2011 at 7:41 am

229
Deirdre December 9, 2011 at 7:41 am

Trader Joe’s caramel sea salt topping and their sesame covered cashews. To die for…

230
kimber December 9, 2011 at 7:41 am

If it’s good vanilla, I can leave it; if it’s cheap vanilla, I’d add caramel! Either way, delicious!

231
amanda @ fake ginger December 9, 2011 at 7:42 am

Plain! I’m a vanilla ice cream purist!

232
The Mrs @ Success Along the Weigh December 9, 2011 at 7:42 am

Hmm, I would probably put a little fudge sauce and Trader Joe’s Fleur De Sel Caramel Sauce on it with some crushed oreos. You know, because its all low cal. HA!

233
Lauren December 9, 2011 at 7:42 am

Toppings toppings, lot o’ toppings. My faves are graham crackers crumbles and (crunchy) peanut butter. YUM! :)

238

I would make a little oatmeal chocolate chip topping to go on top! Yum :)

carlajinar December 9, 2011 at 7:46 am

240
Rebekah December 9, 2011 at 7:46 am

Yummy! I would put hot fudge and nuts on mine.

241
Sallie December 9, 2011 at 7:46 am

242
Jessica December 9, 2011 at 7:46 am

I would definitely add some fresh fruit

243
Patti Hoffa December 9, 2011 at 7:47 am

Definitely pure vanilla! I don’t want anything to get in the way of my vanilla addiction!

244
Sonia December 9, 2011 at 7:47 am

I’d add fruit – strawberries, raspberries or blueberries!

245

Half would be plain, the other half would have marshmallow creme, fruit, hot fudge syrup, and a cherry or 12.

250
Janice Williams December 9, 2011 at 7:50 am

Leave it plain! No way would I want to take away from the deliciousness of vanilla with another distracting flavor. Vanilla is one of my FAVORITE things and I’m always searching for the best quality and best tasting vanilla out there!

251
AmyBeth December 9, 2011 at 7:50 am

I love a true vanilla flavor. I make candied pecans and sometimes candied bacon. I’d crumble a little of each and sprinkle them on. Not enough to change or mask the vanilla essence, but just enough to complement.

252
Lynne December 9, 2011 at 7:51 am

If it was my mama’s homemade, plain would be just fine. If bought, it would be covered in hot fudge sauce. Either way, DELICIOUS!

253
Anne Weber-Falk December 9, 2011 at 7:51 am

A little chocolate drizzled on top for me please and my vanilla would be loaded with specks of vanilla beans. I love the look and the smell of a good vanilla bean ice cream.

254
Krista Sahlin December 9, 2011 at 7:52 am

I put topping on most of the time. My favorite: chocolate chips and coconut!! YUM! Thank you for the opportunity… this is my FAVORITE vanilla. Krista sahlinaks@aol.com

255
Jules December 9, 2011 at 7:52 am

I would be turning that bowl of vanilla ice cream into a huge banana split!!!

256
jeny December 9, 2011 at 7:53 am

I am a plain vanilla girl, BUT I just saw an awesome recipe that called for a little cup of espresso poured on top :) Yum!

257
Kathy in Michigan December 9, 2011 at 7:53 am

Ohhh….how about adding some of our hometown Sanders hot fudge topping. Yum!

258
Brittney December 9, 2011 at 7:53 am

I usually love to add walnuts or pecans!!! ;)

259
Lindsay S. December 9, 2011 at 7:54 am

If it’s really good vanilla (my favorite!), I’d eat it without toppings!

260
Diane December 9, 2011 at 7:54 am

I like it just the way it is….with lots of vanilla bean flecks throughout!!

261
Charlotte December 9, 2011 at 7:55 am

I’d add chocolate chips and cherries!

262
Penny Hall December 9, 2011 at 7:55 am

Remember the small jars of walnuts in a thick maple syrup, will I would dump the whole jar on mine! Dang…now I have to stop at the store on my way home. And guess what I am picking up to go on that good ole’ vanilla ice cream!

263
Dorci December 9, 2011 at 7:55 am

I’d probably leave it plain, especially if it’s vanilla bean. Maybe a drizzle of chocolate syrup, or a side of chocolate cake. :)

264
Tabitha December 9, 2011 at 7:55 am

A handfull of Oreos would get crushed and dumped right on top – YUM!!!

265
Erin H December 9, 2011 at 7:56 am

I would add some caramel and pecans. Yum!

266
alex m December 9, 2011 at 7:56 am

I hope I win! I’d love to try some of the extracts in my holiday baking

267
rebecca @ beurrista December 9, 2011 at 7:56 am

I would add some Fat Toad Farm’s Goat’s Milk Caramel sauce on it. That stuff is THE BEST.

268
Allison December 9, 2011 at 7:56 am

Sometimes I leave it plain and sometimes I feel like going crazy and put everything I can find on it. But unfortunately, it then turns into a meal, not a dessert.

269
Karen H. December 9, 2011 at 7:57 am

my favorite is to put cherry chips and walnuts on vanilla ice cream!!! yummers!

270
Vicki December 9, 2011 at 7:57 am

277
Jan R December 9, 2011 at 8:00 am

Caramel for sure!

278
Jodie M. December 9, 2011 at 8:00 am

I love a good vanilla ice cream…but I also love to add chocolate, marshallow and chopped peanuts! Yum.

279
Becky December 9, 2011 at 8:00 am

What a great giveaway!!! I would love to win! I would probably make some homemade caramel sauce and drown my vanilla ice cream with that and top it with a little chocolate drizzle!

280
Bekki December 9, 2011 at 8:01 am

The perfect accompanyment for a bowl of vanilla ice cream? Warm apple pie, of course!

281
Amanda Johnson December 9, 2011 at 8:01 am

LOVE anything and everything vanilla…hope to win!

282
Amanda Dawn December 9, 2011 at 8:02 am

I like vanilla ice cream drizzled with chocolate. Sweet and simple…it’s the best!

283
Lauren December 9, 2011 at 8:02 am

What an amazing giveaway! I’d dump on either rainbow sprinkles or chocolate chips. That way it’s still simple but not plain.

284
saram December 9, 2011 at 8:02 am

If I had a bowl of vanilla icecream I would definitely add a gazzillion toppings without a doubt!! Thanks for the chance to win a great prize!!

285

I would have to put chocolate syrup and dry roasted peanuts.

287
mary keating December 9, 2011 at 8:03 am

hot fudge (warmed, of course), whipped cream and a cherry!

288
Krissy December 9, 2011 at 8:04 am

I’d make my bowl into a milkshake as well, but I’d add some chocolate and peanut butter to make a Chocolate Peanut Butter milkshake. Oh My YUM!!!

289
Jodi Krautkramer December 9, 2011 at 8:04 am

O Boy, plain vanilla is my FAVORITE!! But I love to add chocolate chips to it, and that is it!!

290
Elizabeth December 9, 2011 at 8:04 am

Yes I would had oreos and make a oreo milkshake dillylish!

291
April Southers December 9, 2011 at 8:05 am

I would leave the vanilla ice cream plain-thats just how I like to eat it! But I would eat it with a slice of homemade caramel vanilla pie!! YUMMY!

292
Paige S December 9, 2011 at 8:06 am

I love vanilla ice cream with caramel sauce, coconut and mini chocolate chips. It’s like a homemade samoa Girl Scout cookie!

293
Andrea December 9, 2011 at 8:06 am

If I had chocolate syrup I would drizzle some of that on top. Or chocolate chips. Generally I like plain ice cream–it’s pretty darn tasty just as it is!

294
Nicole December 9, 2011 at 8:07 am

Plain vanilla is awesome, but I do like adding to it. Chocolate sauce and whipped cream are at the top of the list!

300
Melissa December 9, 2011 at 8:10 am

I would grab a brownie and some hot fudge!

301
Cindy P. December 9, 2011 at 8:10 am

Julie @ Table for Two December 9, 2011 at 8:11 am

I’d load mine up with toppings!! Chocolate chips :)

303
Christi December 9, 2011 at 8:11 am

If I get plain vanilla I’m usually sharing with my Min Pin so I wouldn’t add much, maybe just a squirt of whipped cream!

304
Heidi Jo Phillipd December 9, 2011 at 8:11 am

I only buy this vanilla extract! Nothing else compares, not even close!

305

hersey syrup and malt powder sprinkled on top. Although…reading some of these interesting posts has sparked me to try some new options. Wow!!

312
Deb December 9, 2011 at 8:15 am

Like you, I would eat it plain or add a little milk. Yum.

313

Chelsea December 9, 2011 at 8:15 am

I would load it up with toppings! Caramel and Chocolate and Strawberries!!

316
Mindy December 9, 2011 at 8:16 am

it would be between my home-made hot fudge sauce and home-made butterscotch sauce, or maybe a little (or a lot) of both!

317
kelley @ the eclectic owl December 9, 2011 at 8:16 am

I would load it up with toppings! I like fresh fruit and chocolate on my vanilla ice cream. Hope you’re doing great, Amanda! :)

318

Hot fudge and caramel! YUM! :)

319
Carrie Monts December 9, 2011 at 8:17 am

I too would leave it plain…oh, or maybe add toasted coconut! YUM!

320
LinhC December 9, 2011 at 8:17 am

I’d load it up with nuts, chocolate, cherries, but no sprinkles.

321
Tanya P December 9, 2011 at 8:18 am

I would load it up with chocolate sauce and sprinkles and make it into a milkshake! Yum! What a fun give away! Thank you!!!

322
Jewel B December 9, 2011 at 8:19 am

I’d make a banana split with chocolate fudge, whipped cream, chopped nuts and a cherry on top. YUMMMMMM!

323
Amy December 9, 2011 at 8:19 am

I love to put my grandma’s homemade strawberry jam on top of vanilla ice cream! The jam is so delicious and chunky, it’s almost like eating fresh strawberries!

324
Lindsay December 9, 2011 at 8:19 am

I’d top mine with brownies, oreos, and hot fudge! And I love vanilla.

325
Sasha December 9, 2011 at 8:19 am

Can we trade the vanilla in for chocolate, and add some marshmallow cream? Yum!

326
Zeina ElMaghrabi December 9, 2011 at 8:19 am

Peanut butter sauce and tons of hot fudge! Like so much you can barely see the ice cream!! Lol

327
Janet S December 9, 2011 at 8:19 am

Butterscotch topping with a sprinkling of salty nuts.

328
Sonnet Bee December 9, 2011 at 8:21 am

Vanilla ice cream is my favorite & I have to say, I would eat it without any extra ingredients.. but I like your idea of making it into a milkshake. I have always, since childhood, stirred my ice cream in a bowl until it melted just a little. That is the best!!

329
Gretta December 9, 2011 at 8:23 am

First, I’d hope it was a big bowl of vanilla bean ice cream and then I’d load it up with fresh strawberries

Hot fudge and pecans!!!!

331
J. Mies December 9, 2011 at 8:24 am

Hot fudge, caramel and nuts. Yum!

332
Kayle (The Cooking Actress) December 9, 2011 at 8:24 am

If I had a brownie or cookie anywhere around I would heat it up, then put it in with the ice cream-and maybe melt some peanut butter and drizzle that over it too. MMm….now I’m hungry!

333
LoriU December 9, 2011 at 8:24 am

I would have to put hot fudge on it and some chocolate sprinkles!

Oh I love vanilla and really hope my random number comes up for this!

334
Katie @decoratemylife December 9, 2011 at 8:25 am

I love putting chopped strawberries and granola on vanilla icecream!

335
Tami M. December 9, 2011 at 8:25 am

I love a little warm hot fudge on my vanilla ice cream, and a mound of whipped cream, oh so yummy! What an amazing prize package, I love Massey products, thanks so much for the chance to win!

336
Nina December 9, 2011 at 8:25 am

I like to stir it up a little to make it creamy, but I eat it plain!

337
Kathy December 9, 2011 at 8:25 am

I love plain vanilla ice cream….add a little caramel makes it perfect!!

338
Leslie December 9, 2011 at 8:25 am

I am a baker at heart and love to find fund things to bake each holiday season and through out the year. Vanilla is such a big part of this activity. But I have been using vanilla at a faster rate than in the past because I have discovered Vanilla Milk…and I drink a lot of milk for the calcium… I use about a capful per quart. Really livens up skim milk and soy milk. Hope I win!!! Happy Holidays to you Amanda and all your readers!!!!

339
Denise P. December 9, 2011 at 8:26 am

I love vanilla ice cream with chocolate sauce.

340
Jessica December 9, 2011 at 8:26 am

I absolutely love vanilla ice cream with peach cobbler. My other choice would be with caramel, mini chocolate chips, and cool whip.

341
Lara December 9, 2011 at 8:27 am

I definitely eat my ice cream plain!

342
Monica Newman December 9, 2011 at 8:27 am

344
Sandy_in_MD December 9, 2011 at 8:28 am

I love putting M & M’s and broken pretzal sticks on vanilla ice cream. Yummy! Thanks for sponsoring this awesome giveaway.

345
Angie December 9, 2011 at 8:29 am

I’d probably go plain. I never used to, but my kid loves plain vanilla ice cream and has made me find a new appreciation for it :)

346
Janna McKechnie December 9, 2011 at 8:29 am

Plain for me please. Yumm!

347
Shelby December 9, 2011 at 8:29 am

I would add caramel to my bowl of vanilla ice cream!

348
Jenny E. December 9, 2011 at 8:29 am

My husband’s family has a chocolate sauce recipe that is to die for. Vanilla ice cream is the perfect companion!

349
Jessica December 9, 2011 at 8:29 am

Most favorite ice cream combination ever: Vanilla ice cream, warm brownie chunks, fresh raspberries. Maybe a little chocolate drizzle. YUM!

350
Jan December 9, 2011 at 8:29 am

HMMM! Imagine a bowl of vanilla ice cream,
I would use bourbon vanilla sugar and coffee vanilla sugar sprinkled on it.

351
Marilyn December 9, 2011 at 8:31 am

352
Beth December 9, 2011 at 8:31 am

Vanilla Ice Cream is best with my homemade chocolate sauce. Delicous.

353
Maggie G December 9, 2011 at 8:31 am

I’m not a huge ice cream fan, but I do love it with warm cookies or brownies!

354
Sara December 9, 2011 at 8:32 am

Oh, how I love to create my own sundaes. There’s no way I would leave it plain! Mine would be loaded up with whipped cream, hot fudge, caramel drizzle, sprinkles, and a cherry on top!

355
Angelique December 9, 2011 at 8:32 am

With Vanilla Or Vanilla Bean Ice cream My favorite way to enjoy it has gotta Be RootBeer. My Favorite is Maine Root and Organic and Local ( I’m From Maine) Company and 2 Scoops of Vanilla Bean Ice Cream and I am instantly taken back to Summer

356
Tessa D December 9, 2011 at 8:32 am

I would love to win and try these out!

357
Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga December 9, 2011 at 8:32 am

And I love N.M. vanilla…it’s SUCH a luxurious treat. I’d love to win some. Great giveaway!

358
Valerie K December 9, 2011 at 8:32 am

Plain… unless it is fresh fruit season and then strawberries or peaches!!

359
Mary Anne Tomlinson December 9, 2011 at 8:32 am

I’d add some pineapple and pecans to my vanilla ice cream! Love love love this brand of vanilla. I use the kind from Madagascar. It’s all I ever use so I’d be delighted to get different flavors to try. I accidentally bumped my bottle over the other day and one-third of it spilled on the counter. I was “sick” about that, let me tell you!

360
Jacqui December 9, 2011 at 8:32 am

I would definitely load it up with toppings… specifically candy, any sort of chocolate and lots of whipped cream!!

361
Amber M. December 9, 2011 at 8:32 am

363
Candice December 9, 2011 at 8:32 am

I’d top it with some fruits and indulge!

365

366

Vanilla Ice-Cream?! – I just eat it plain when it’s just beginning to get soft – soo creamy and my favorite ice cream to eat – pure unadulterated vanilla icecream!

367
Jen C December 9, 2011 at 8:34 am

I’d load it up with toppings – crushed peanut butter cups, Snickers, or maybe some crumbled brownies. Yum!

368
Kellie December 9, 2011 at 8:34 am

I love to melt peanut butter and then pour it over vanilla ice cream and then add hot fudge….

370
Julie McD December 9, 2011 at 8:35 am

371
Sarah E. December 9, 2011 at 8:35 am

In a perfect world where I could eat whatever I want I’d add hot fudge and chopped salted peanuts!

372
Erin December 9, 2011 at 8:35 am

Plain old vanilla is simply the best – however, I could come up with a raspberry, vanilla and grand marnier syrup in the summer months if I had some of this gorgeous vanilla – yum yum!

373
Heather December 9, 2011 at 8:35 am

Plain is the BEST!! Thanks for sharing this!

374
Shirley December 9, 2011 at 8:35 am

Chocolate and caramel for sure!

375
tracy December 9, 2011 at 8:36 am

crushed heath bar for me!

376
Jan A December 9, 2011 at 8:36 am

I would eat it with chocoate and caramel syrups on top.

377
Toni Clark December 9, 2011 at 8:36 am

Amanda until I started reading your blog I never knew vanilla could be so very exciting! I was in Trader Joe’s last week and got Pure Bourbon vanilla. I used it to make Chocolate Chai Bread and what a unique flavor it offered. So… THANK YOU!

In terms of ice cream, I’m with your hubby…hot fudge and peanut butter cups. Mmm, I think I know what I’m having for dessert tonight. :-)

378
Amanda December 9, 2011 at 8:37 am

I’d put these wonderful little creme brulee almonds on it that I recently discovered. I am in love!!!

379
Carol December 9, 2011 at 8:37 am

I would love to have some fresh peaches and toasted pecans on mine. Although I love just plain vanilla ice cream.

380
Rachel S. December 9, 2011 at 8:37 am

I would crush up some pretzels and add a bit of caramel. And then eat it very fast before my 2 year old son saw that I had ice cream.

381
Jennifer December 9, 2011 at 8:37 am

I love to pair my vanilla ice cream with nuts, sliced banana, and chocolate syrup. YUM and slightly nutritious, right? ;)

382
Karie @ The HoB December 9, 2011 at 8:39 am

I love a good vanilla and I would leave my vanilla ice cream plain!

383
Tera December 9, 2011 at 8:39 am

Delicious! Chocolate for sure!

384
Anne - San Diego December 9, 2011 at 8:39 am

I would top it off with fresh raspberry sauce!

385
Carla Skipper December 9, 2011 at 8:41 am

Ooooooo in a bowl with milk poured over it! Not a shake but not just ice-cream. YUM!!!

386
Becky December 9, 2011 at 8:41 am

Load it up! The Reese’s topping that hardens is my absolute favorite, but add on some whipped cream, caramel, and the cherry on top and it would be perfect!

387
Debi Kibbee December 9, 2011 at 8:41 am

I would add hot fudge!

388
Pamela December 9, 2011 at 8:43 am

Awesome! I love putting tons of sprinkles on top & then mixing it all together!

Would love to try Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla Bean and
Tahitian Vanilla Bean which seem to be 2 of your favs so they must be good!

390
Cara December 9, 2011 at 8:44 am

I like it plain, or with caramel!

391
Charanne December 9, 2011 at 8:46 am

I have to have some toasted slivered almonds in my vanilla ice cream…. hard to beat the sweetness of the vanilla and the crunch of the almonds together!

392
Andrea S. December 9, 2011 at 8:46 am

My VERY favorite: Vanilla Ice Cream, Strawberries & Hershey’s Syrup… AH!

393
Kim December 9, 2011 at 8:47 am

I would pour hot fudge all over it and top it with about 10 cherries. And maybe add some caramel sauce. Yum!!

394
Tracy S. December 9, 2011 at 8:48 am

I’d give the bowl to my husband — not an ice cream fan. Give me something {BAKED} any day! :)

395
Keri Murphy December 9, 2011 at 8:48 am

What else to do but make a Coke float! Thanks Amanda

396
Sabrina December 9, 2011 at 8:48 am

I love really good vanilla ice cream, but I also love it with fruit such as fresh or frozen blueberries (slightly thawed). Yum!

397
Demitria December 9, 2011 at 8:50 am

I would put homemade hot fudge and LOTS of rainbow sprinkles! Has to be rainbow! =)

398
lesli December 9, 2011 at 8:50 am

Mmmmm….I love vanilla anything, especially vanilla bean ice cream. It doesn’t have to be adorned with any toppings!

399
Sierra December 9, 2011 at 8:51 am

I would definitely turn it into a chocolate pb milkshake!

400
Tammy December 9, 2011 at 8:52 am

Yum! I love topping vanilla ice cream with home made jam or sea salt caramel sauce!

406
Reagan December 9, 2011 at 8:55 am

Holidays mean making our favorite Italian cookies, Pizelles. We especially love to make ice cream sandwiches with them, and serve them with a big bowl of chocolate gelato. We add candies, hazelnuts, all sorts of syrups and my favorite-sprinkles!

407
Susan December 9, 2011 at 8:55 am

Hot fudge & peanuts!!

408
Ginger December 9, 2011 at 8:55 am

I’d crunch up a big old Heath bar over it!

409
Nuria December 9, 2011 at 8:55 am

For other kind of flavor I would go for toppings but for my loved vanilla ice cream … I like just to eat it in all its gorgeous glory!

410
Sydney December 9, 2011 at 8:55 am

416
Misty Pursiful December 9, 2011 at 9:01 am

417
Sarah W. December 9, 2011 at 9:01 am

I would add caramel sauce!!

418
Ladybug December 9, 2011 at 9:01 am

If it’s really good vanilla I just go for plain…altho fresh strawberris are good too!! :) … YUM!! :)

419
Lori Hada December 9, 2011 at 9:01 am

I love hot fudge with chopped peanuts! Nielson-Massey is the only vanilla I use!

420
Amber December 9, 2011 at 9:01 am

That’s a tough one, normally I like my vanilla ice cream (my fav flavor!) plan, but every once in a while, I am in the mood for some chocolate topping :).

421
Emilie December 9, 2011 at 9:02 am

100% load it up with toppings-any candy bars in my reach and some warm peanut butter!

422
Amber December 9, 2011 at 9:02 am

That’s a tough one, normally I like my vanilla ice cream (my fav flavor!) plain, but every once in a while, I am in the mood for some chocolate topping :).

423
Amber December 9, 2011 at 9:06 am

Sorry Amanda, tried to fix my typo and accidentally posted my comment twice.

424
Jacks December 9, 2011 at 9:02 am

My favorite is hot fudge and fresh raspberries!

425
Dawn in HSV December 9, 2011 at 9:03 am

I’d add some Hershey’s syrup and maybe some nuts.

426
Colleen December 9, 2011 at 9:05 am

My favorite is vanilla Haagen Dazs topped with sliced bananas and dark chocolate sauce (and maybe some whipped cream). YUMMY!

427
Maureen December 9, 2011 at 9:05 am

While I do love plain vanilla ice cream there are times I would add some warm caramel sauce and toffee bits to it.

428
Kristin December 9, 2011 at 9:05 am

I would add some fresh raspberries and dark chocolate. Yum Yum!

429
Linda December 9, 2011 at 9:05 am

Hot caramel, chocolate and peanut butter :)

430

435
Bev Weidner December 9, 2011 at 9:08 am

Would it be wrong to just pour the vanilla down my throat?

436
Jessica December 9, 2011 at 9:09 am

The best part of ice cream is the toppings in my opinion! :) I would add chocolate, brownies, peanut butter cups, caramel – the whole 9 yards really!

437
Jill December 9, 2011 at 9:09 am

I would definitely load it up with hot fudge and/or melted peanut butter. Maybe crumble some pb cups on there too. Or whatever candy/cookies I have handy. If it’s vanilla, I definitely have to load it up. :)

438
Amy December 9, 2011 at 9:11 am

Plain…all stirred up so it turns to soft serve!

439
Amanda December 9, 2011 at 9:11 am

I’d add toppings- hot fudge and cherries. Or a milkshake. Yum.

440

441
kristin December 9, 2011 at 9:12 am

i would add salted caramel sauce and crushed oreos!

442

I would have to put the vanilla ice cream on top of a yummy brownie and smother it with hot fudge sauce and top with whipped cream! My favorite dessert!

443
Bobbie H December 9, 2011 at 9:13 am

I would add a little milk, enough to make it icy!

444
Tess December 9, 2011 at 9:14 am

These sound absolutely insane for all the Christmas cookies that will be created in the next few weeks! Coffee vanilla – who knew!

445
Tess December 9, 2011 at 9:15 am

*oops. Coffee extract. pardon me. I’m still just as excited about these, though!

446
vicki December 9, 2011 at 9:15 am

I love it plain, in the microwave about 11 seconds to make it soft and eat away!!

447
Melanie Ladek December 9, 2011 at 9:15 am

I would top it with chopped, toasted walnuts!

448
Suzanne December 9, 2011 at 9:15 am

Toppings! But only Hot Fudge

450
Amanda December 9, 2011 at 9:16 am

I love vanilla ice cream as it is but I’m also a sucker for hot fudge…or brownies…mmmmmm

451
Kathy H December 9, 2011 at 9:16 am

452

453
Janille M December 9, 2011 at 9:17 am

454
Jodi Jenson December 9, 2011 at 9:18 am

Plain with fresh strawberries on top!

455
Vicky December 9, 2011 at 9:18 am

I love vanilla ice cream … with hot fudge under and on top of it … yummy tummy!

456
zaara December 9, 2011 at 9:18 am

Yum!I would go for chocolate and some nuts!That’s my kind!
By the way a milkshake is not a bad idea either!

457
Alison December 9, 2011 at 9:19 am

I would layer the ice cream between two cookies!

458
Laura Smith December 9, 2011 at 9:19 am

461
Chris Klassen December 9, 2011 at 9:20 am

Mix in crushed Oreo Cookies :)

462
Laura S. December 9, 2011 at 9:21 am

A good vanilla bean ice cream requires no additional toppings. Otherwise, my go to topping is always caramel.

463
Debra D. December 9, 2011 at 9:21 am

I love vanilla ice cream, either plan or sometimes I may add some fresh berries, blackberries are my favorite!

464
Sara P December 9, 2011 at 9:22 am

I would leave it plain….but wait a few minutes so it can get all soppy and delicious!! Mmmmmm!

465
Kate December 9, 2011 at 9:22 am

I would add strawberries!!!!

466
Laura December 9, 2011 at 9:22 am

I’d put it on a cone or top it with some Bailey’s.

467
Melissa December 9, 2011 at 9:23 am

Reese’s, caramel, hot fudge, heath bits…yum!! A lot of toppings is usually what I prefer, but sometimes you can’t go wrong with a perfect, plain vanilla.

468
Cheryl December 9, 2011 at 9:23 am

I’m on a huge caramel kick right now…so I think I would do caramel sauce, a hint of sea salt, and chocolate sprinkles :)

469
Nikki December 9, 2011 at 9:23 am

I love to crush cookies on top of vanilla ice cream. My husband prefers to load his with chocolate syrup!

470
adrienne December 9, 2011 at 9:23 am

What a yummy giveaway! Hope I win! lol.

471
Amanda Brandeburg December 9, 2011 at 9:24 am

I would def. eat it plain because when you start adding all the toppings the flavors of the vanilla get muddled with all that additional sugar.

472
Kimberli December 9, 2011 at 9:24 am

I’m a topping girl – usually chocolate chips or m&ms – thanks for the chance to win this yummy giveaway!

473
Gay H. December 9, 2011 at 9:25 am

I would have to cover vanilla ice cream with chocolate syrup!

474
Tina Rhodes December 9, 2011 at 9:25 am

I would totally leave it plain! A big bowl of just beginning to soften Rocky Road ice cream…yum!

475
Susan December 9, 2011 at 9:25 am

I load it up with gooey goodness – chocolate and caramel are my favorites. Add a little nuts and everything is perfect!

Heather Mayberry December 9, 2011 at 9:25 am

vanilla, yum! i would definitely eat it plain. if i turned it into a milkshake i’d have to throw some oreos in there!

477
Beverly December 9, 2011 at 9:28 am

Oh my goodness! What an *amazing* give-away! Thank you for the opportunity!

I’d pile raspberries all over that ice cream. Mmmm ….

478
confessionalcook December 9, 2011 at 9:29 am

Hot fudge. Indeed, hot fudge.

479
Katie December 9, 2011 at 9:29 am

Give me some hot fudge and fresh whipped cream!

480
Jenna Nelson December 9, 2011 at 9:29 am

caramel sauce, baby!

481
KarenC December 9, 2011 at 9:29 am

I would add fresh strawberries!

482
Paul Y December 9, 2011 at 9:30 am

Trade the Vanilla in for Chocolate!

483
Sharie T December 9, 2011 at 9:30 am

Ok, you probably think I am a suck-up, but my fav is vanilla milkshakes too….HOWEVER, have you tried putting just a couple drops of pure vanilla extract it? Try it…..YUM!!!
Also, try vanilla extract in your french toast batter…again…YUM! :)

Thanks for sharing…again.

484
Michelle December 9, 2011 at 9:31 am

I just made some chocolate chip cookies for my office holiday party. I think a warm cookie with some vanilla icecream and a little bit of hot fudge sounds like heaven!!

485
Jen O December 9, 2011 at 9:34 am

Really good vanilla bean ice cream should be left alone or topped with dark chocolate topping or shavings… Yum!

486
Laura H December 9, 2011 at 9:34 am

Oh ice cream is a HUGE weakness of mine! I love putting strawberries, bananas, and chocolate syrup on my ice cream, but the other thing I love to do with a bowl of vanilla ice cream is put it in the blender with oreos and make a milkshake! My mouth is watering just thinking about it =)

487
Angela December 9, 2011 at 9:35 am

If it’s a really good vanilla ice cream, I’ll often leave it plain. Other times though, I like to load it up with fruit and a bit of chocolate sauce.

488
Wendy Rupper December 9, 2011 at 9:36 am

Mmmm…vanilla. I’d skip the ice cream, and just make a big batch of cookie dough with extra vanilla, then eat THAT!

Jenny December 9, 2011 at 9:36 am

Some crushed Oreos would make a nice addition!

490
Meghan December 9, 2011 at 9:36 am

I always add chocolate sauce and chocolate chips!

491
Kelly December 9, 2011 at 9:37 am

I would normally leave it plain-jane but on occassion add some yummy caramel sauce!

492
Emmie December 9, 2011 at 9:39 am

I pour a little left over coffee and some chocolate syrup on the vanilla ice crea.

493
Mel H December 9, 2011 at 9:39 am

Plain vanilla…uh, no. That’s like a sin or something. Has to have some chocolate, or fruit, or sprinkles or something. Vanilla is always better when it has a friend!

494
kirsten w'ski December 9, 2011 at 9:39 am

Hershey’s syrup and sprinkles for sure!

495
Julie December 9, 2011 at 9:39 am

Oh…gotta put some chocolate on it!!!

496
Lauren December 9, 2011 at 9:39 am

I’d add PB!

497
Janet December 9, 2011 at 9:39 am

Plain or with chocolate syrup.

498
Tracy December 9, 2011 at 9:40 am

I love a good vanilla extract. I use it for any baking need such as homemade chocolate chip cookies or brownies. I do prefer to eat ice cream plain. Thanks for the lovely giveaway.

499
Barb December 9, 2011 at 9:40 am

Plain vanilla ice cream in front of me would require the addition of some fruit and then Smuckers Chocolate Magic Shell :D

500
Ken December 9, 2011 at 9:40 am

I would put some fruit cocktail on it and some extra cherries!

501
tkangaroo December 9, 2011 at 9:40 am

sliced almonds and dark chocolate on top of vanilla ice cream. Or dark chocolate chips and raspberries.

502
Kat Meller December 9, 2011 at 9:41 am

I’m a vanilla girl – i have vanilla candles and fragrances and shower gels – i even make my own vanilla for baking but vanilla ice cream just calls for something …. either apple pie below it or chocolate fudge and nuts above.

503
Pia December 9, 2011 at 9:41 am

Chocolateeeee, always chocolate! :)

504
Rowena December 9, 2011 at 9:42 am

I like mine with peanuts. The sweet with a bit of salty.

505
Jenny Johnson December 9, 2011 at 9:42 am

A little chocolate drizzle on my vanilla icecream is perfect!

506
jessica December 9, 2011 at 9:44 am

Load. It. UP!!!! M&Ms, chopped reeses, crumbled oreos :) yummmmm

507
YvonneC December 9, 2011 at 9:45 am

Yum. I could really go for a bowl of ice cream right now! Depending on my mood, I would eat the vanilla plan or top it with warm caramel sauce, sliced banana and some whipped topping/cool whip.

508
Allison December 9, 2011 at 9:48 am

Brownies and hot fudge. Mmmm….chocolate and vanilla. :)

509
Deanna December 9, 2011 at 9:48 am

I would top it with some Fleur de Sel Caramel Sauce for sure!

510
Heather December 9, 2011 at 9:48 am

hmmm… I’d either put some crumbled PB cups on top, or, if I’m feeling nostalgic and remembering nights at the grandparents cottage, I’d put some magic shell on top. :)

511
Kelly Jo December 9, 2011 at 9:48 am

Oh wow, I love to make my own coffee creamer and I use a cheaper pure vanilla. I cannot imagine how much a quality vanilla would improve my creamer!!

512
Erin December 9, 2011 at 9:49 am

I sprinkle Ovaltine on it. It’s yummy AND a blast from the past :)

513
Teresa A December 9, 2011 at 9:49 am

What a beautiful line-up! I’d leave it plain, melt a little and give it a stir…yum

514
Jewels December 9, 2011 at 9:49 am

I love it plain. But on special occasions I would put some fresh made caramel along with the little chocolate chips. Oh it is so yummy!!

515
Jennifer O December 9, 2011 at 9:50 am

I would leave it plain but add a little bit of milk on it to make the outside of the ice cream have a nice crunch to it.

516
AliciaC December 9, 2011 at 9:50 am

I’d load it up with fresh fruit!

517
Kat Lee December 9, 2011 at 9:50 am

Hot fudge, brownie chunks, and whip cream!!!!

518
Molly G. December 9, 2011 at 9:50 am

I like to top my ice cream with some granola and fresh fruit, like bananas or strawberries.

519
Charlene December 9, 2011 at 9:51 am

Ice cream toppings? Hmmm… chocolate (of course!), nuts, chocolate, whip cream, nuts… YUM

520
Heidi December 9, 2011 at 9:52 am

I would just add fudge…yum.

521
Laura December 9, 2011 at 9:52 am

I would crush some Reese’s peanut butter cups and mix them into the vanilla ice cream :D

522
Kirsten December 9, 2011 at 9:52 am

Load it up! Caramels, chocolates, fruits, syrups, toffee chunks (CANNOT forget the toffee) and soooooo much more. Vanilla is good, but divine with toppings!

523
Amy December 9, 2011 at 9:53 am

I would add chocolate syrup and whipped cream! Yum!

524
ellen patton December 9, 2011 at 9:53 am

I would add toppings for sure.

525
Denise Webster December 9, 2011 at 9:54 am

I have never seen some of this stuff! What a cool prize! I would love to try some of these!!

526
Martha December 9, 2011 at 9:54 am

Definitely with toppings … homemade hot fudge and caramel sauce, maybe some crushed butterfingers or oreos …

527
Jen Friesz December 9, 2011 at 9:54 am

MMMmmm… add a drizzle of maple syrup top off with some pumkin pie spice and and you have the most amzing pumkin pie ice cream ever!!

528
Brianan December 9, 2011 at 9:54 am

I would either cover it in chocolate syrup and peanuts or blend it up with some orange juice.

529
Amanda Bumgarner December 9, 2011 at 9:55 am

I’d probably just put good ole hot fudge on top!

530
Denise N December 9, 2011 at 9:55 am

OK, I would start with the vanilla ice cream “base” and then add some caramel, chocolate, nuts, some whipped topping and a few mini chocolate chips! (Peanut butter is another good thing to add or some powered hot chocolate mix)! Yum!

531
Amber Lewis December 9, 2011 at 9:56 am

It depends on my mood…sometimes you can’t beat plain ol vanilla ice cream. Other days I throw some chocolate chips and chocolate syrup on there and make it a party.

532
Celenia December 9, 2011 at 9:56 am

I love vanilla ice cream…I would simply top it with some rum caramel sauce

533
Cheri December 9, 2011 at 9:56 am

if it were the best extraction from vanilla, who needs toppings? just enjoy the flavor from the vanilla!

534
Robin Welch December 9, 2011 at 9:57 am

I would do one of two things… either crumble saltine crackers on it or top it with uncooked oatmeal and a little bit of carmel sauce.

535
Ashley M. December 9, 2011 at 9:57 am

I would add chocolate!

536
Koren H December 9, 2011 at 9:59 am

I’d put marshmallow creme on it… :)

537
Meghan December 9, 2011 at 9:59 am

I’m all about sprinkles (or, as we call them in New England, jimmies.) Load me up on those on the bottom and top of my ice cream please, just like my favorite local place does! :)

538
Dana December 9, 2011 at 10:01 am

I like to add a cherry and a sprinkle of cocoa

539
Jeannette December 9, 2011 at 10:01 am

I like plain vanilla … rich and creamy!!

540
Cassie Tucker December 9, 2011 at 10:02 am

I’m totally adding a bit of hot fudge and then swirling it until it’s milky and I can drink it :D

541
Lisa Johnson December 9, 2011 at 10:03 am

I ♥ me some maraschino (spelling?) cherries & pour the juice over the ice cream and mix it together to make a cherry shake type concoction. SO GOOD!

542
Pam December 9, 2011 at 10:03 am

I am with Kevin too! I like to have chocolate on my ice cream and peanut butter AND chocolate in my shake!

543
Sydni Cline December 9, 2011 at 10:04 am

Depends on the day, some days, plain would be yummy. Others I’d add rootbeer to it and make a shake, others I’d add oreos for a yummy cookies & cream…

544
Larissa December 9, 2011 at 10:05 am

HOT FUDGE & homemade whipped cream. Maybe a few ripe strawberries or even raspberries. Yummy! I fell in love with some Mexican Vanilla I purchased at in Cancun. It was soooo good. I would love to try some other types of vanilla products. thanks for the contest!

545
Paulette December 9, 2011 at 10:07 am

I love to put corn syrup on my vanilla icecream.. simple yet sooo yummy! My son has rainbow sprinkles everytime.. and ends up with rainbow dot marks on his nose and around his mouth.. and he’s 8! ;)

546
jaime December 9, 2011 at 10:08 am

I would add hot fudge sauce!

547
Lori C December 9, 2011 at 10:08 am

I’m totally a toppings girl. Which kind depends on the season… strawberries and whipped cream… cinnamon and apple pie filling… chocolate sauce and candy canes… The list is a long one!

548
Emily December 9, 2011 at 10:10 am

Hot fudge and rainbow sprinkles everytime!

549
Dawn December 9, 2011 at 10:11 am

I would put some good caramel sauce on it! Yum!!!

550
Jenny Christian December 9, 2011 at 10:11 am

Add mini chocolate chips and a thin layer of milk. Let it harden slightly and then mix it up a bit. It’s gotta be vanilla bean ice cream though! :)

551
KAM December 9, 2011 at 10:13 am

I would add either caramel or strawberries!

552
Kathy Miller December 9, 2011 at 10:13 am

I love trail mix on top of my vanilla ice cream and if I don’t have that on hand plain is best!! Thanks for the opportunity to win the flavorings!!

553
Peggy December 9, 2011 at 10:14 am

Vanilla ice cream and chocolate syrup!

554
krkuntz December 9, 2011 at 10:15 am

555
Jules Sherman December 9, 2011 at 10:16 am

Homemade hot fudge! Yum!

556
Sarah S December 9, 2011 at 10:17 am

Got to add some candied pecans or walnuts in syrup!!

557
Carly December 9, 2011 at 10:17 am

Sounds Delish. Need to get my holiday baking on!

558
Jessica December 9, 2011 at 10:18 am

Make it a la mode!

559
RaChelle S. December 9, 2011 at 10:20 am

Ooo, yummy giveaway! I most often like my ice cream plain, BUT occasionally love to pile up lots of goodies and make a sundae!

560
Urban Wife December 9, 2011 at 10:21 am

Oh my gosh, what an awesome giveaway! Honestly, I love my vanilla ice cream plain.

561
Julie December 9, 2011 at 10:21 am

Loaded with caramel and roasted pecans. Yeah baby!

563
Anne December 9, 2011 at 10:22 am

564
Jess December 9, 2011 at 10:22 am

Hershey’s syrup and sliced bananas! My version of a banana split :)

565
Sassy Pants December 9, 2011 at 10:23 am

Vanilla ice cream is best served with drippy chocolate peppermint ganache!

566
Karen Seltrecht December 9, 2011 at 10:24 am

567

The Mr. (& Mrs.) J December 9, 2011 at 10:24 am

I like mine with chocolate syrup and my wife loves fruit chunks in hers.

569
Karen December 9, 2011 at 10:25 am

Hot Fudge, toffee bits and whipped cream…yum! NEVER plain vanilla…

570
Teresa Kelman December 9, 2011 at 10:25 am

Home made caramel sauce – still warm from the oven.

571
Jenny December 9, 2011 at 10:26 am

573

I would add some chocolate sauce, or homemade caramel sauce. YUM!

574
me and the dogs December 9, 2011 at 10:28 am

mmmmm,plain vanilla,softened a bit,,yum

575
Jodi December 9, 2011 at 10:28 am

I would either pour yummy homemade hot fudge over it (has to homemade or not worth it) or make it a rootbeer float!

576
Laura December 9, 2011 at 10:29 am

I would top it with warm apple crisp (or the other way round) and only dig in when it starts to get soft and melty!

577
Kelly December 9, 2011 at 10:29 am

I do like plain vanilla if it’s really good quality ice cream. For a topping I would put on crushed Butterfinger.

578
Lindsey C. December 9, 2011 at 10:30 am

Since I LOVE ice cream, I would take mine all sorts of different ways… I guess my absolute favorite would be to agree with Kevin, only add Almond Joy bites to the mix and a black cherry… Mmmm… Just thinking about it makes me want some right now!…

579
Sue December 9, 2011 at 10:30 am

Oh yummmmmmmmmm … my mouth is watering just thinking of winning :) Say it’s me, please!

580
Kallyn December 9, 2011 at 10:31 am

I would make it into a milkshake with oreo cookies and a dab of mint extract – love oreo mint milkshakes!

581
Crystal December 9, 2011 at 10:32 am

Loads of toppings: chocolate, caramel, graham crackers. Yum!

582
Maggie December 9, 2011 at 10:33 am

I love vanilla ice cream with Nutella! THE. BEST. EVER! Yum!

583
Vanessa December 9, 2011 at 10:35 am

I would put strawberries and sabagnon sauce on top of it, hmmmm yummy!

584
Christina December 9, 2011 at 10:35 am

I would load it up with almond whipped cream and jimmies and more jimmies!

585
Karen K December 9, 2011 at 10:35 am

I’m just a plain vanilla kind of girl!

586
Linda S, December 9, 2011 at 10:36 am

I will definately have a “pink Cow”. Vanilla, Barq’s Cream Soda, whipped cream with a cherry! Yummmmmmmmmmm.

587
Fran December 9, 2011 at 10:37 am

I love to put cut up banana, peanuts and chocolate syrup on my ice cream. Makes me feel “healthy” with the fruit! lol. Thanks for the chance.

588
Jacki December 9, 2011 at 10:37 am

Ice cream just isn’t complete without a brownie by his side. :)

589
Erin D December 9, 2011 at 10:37 am

Hmm. I think homemade vanilla ice cream with fresh strawberries and peaches would be DIVINE! Although Kevin’s idea sounds pretty fantastic as well. Great giveaway! Love your site! :)

590
Rachel @ Baked by Rachel December 9, 2011 at 10:38 am

vanilla ice cream almost always gets topped with strawberry sauce if I’m eating it. the more the better!

591
J Chapman December 9, 2011 at 10:39 am

Toasted Pecans!

592
Elizabeth December 9, 2011 at 10:41 am

oh I would definitley have to put a side of fresh homemade blackberry pie/cobbler with vanilla ice cream…make my mouth water just thinking about it!

593
Debbie (Mrs. Paul Bunyon) King December 9, 2011 at 10:42 am

Just give me a spoon…

594
Jeanette December 9, 2011 at 10:42 am

I’d leave it plain. Good vanilla ice cream is delicious on its own.

595
Teri Dingler December 9, 2011 at 10:42 am

Top it with crushed oreo cookies! Mix, and it becomes a blizzard!

596
jessica larsen December 9, 2011 at 10:44 am

Melted peanut butter and chocolate syrup!! yum!

597
Jennifer Madigan December 9, 2011 at 10:46 am

My husband always laughs at me but I like to let my ice cream melt slightly until it’s creamy and smooth. If I don’t want to wait I microwave it for about 10 seconds, just enough to accomplish the same thing.

598
Christy F December 9, 2011 at 10:48 am

Cover the vanilla ice cream with caramel sauce… and lots of it!

599
Jade N December 9, 2011 at 10:48 am

I would totally leave it plain…especially if it’s vanilla bean ice cream. The little specks of beans are as good as sprinkles in my book!

600
Delisa Taylor December 9, 2011 at 10:48 am

OH WOW! I can’t even begin to imagine how may different flavors of ice cream you could have. I LOVE ice cream, so I would love to try to figure out how many different flavors I could make!!!!! YUM!!!!

601
Amy A. December 9, 2011 at 10:49 am

Drizzled with Fresco Chocolate :D

602
Erin December 9, 2011 at 10:50 am

i just ran across your blog last weekend, and i am hooked!!! :)

603
Samantha C. December 9, 2011 at 10:50 am

LOTS of toppings! Hot fudge, caramel, whipped cream, and a cherry!

604
cheryl December 9, 2011 at 10:51 am

These products are wonderful! Vanilla and their other extracts. I use their Tahitian Vanilla in whipped cream, and buttercream icings for a delicate taste. Their Vanilla Bean Paste makes a extra yummy vanilla bean flavor when I want Vanilla Cupcakes with a vanilla bean icing. No matter if you win or lose, take a look at their products!!!!!

605
Anne December 9, 2011 at 10:52 am

I would want to add some sliced fresh strawberries and a little drizzle of dark chocolate sauce. Yum!Yum!

606
Gwen W December 9, 2011 at 10:52 am

I would have to add something to it, at least Chocolate or Coffee. As much as you love Vanilla, I’m a Chocolate girl. No plain vanilla for me :-)

607
Aditi December 9, 2011 at 10:52 am

Hot chocolate sauce on the vanilla ice-cream please!

608
Debbie Hall December 9, 2011 at 10:54 am

Thank you so much for all of your beautiful pictures, ideas and recipes. I enjoy getting your emails every day and checking you out on facebook!!!!

609
Liz Cook December 9, 2011 at 10:54 am

I love vanilla ice cream but it has to be rich, creamy vanilla ice cream. I love chocolate, whipped cream on top with nuts and sprinkles! Yum….I need to have some now! Sometimes when I have fresh strawberries, I like to add those, too!

610
Amber DuVentre December 9, 2011 at 10:54 am

Plain Jane over here!!

611
KC December 9, 2011 at 10:54 am

Strawberries on top.

612
lindsay December 9, 2011 at 10:55 am

I love oreo cookies on my vanilla ice cream!

613
Sue December 9, 2011 at 10:55 am

Vanilla ice cream is perfect with hot fudge sauce and slivered almonds.

614
Kathee Kiefer December 9, 2011 at 10:55 am

I leave my vanilla ice cream unadulterated because I love the taste of pure vanilla.

615
Sheri December 9, 2011 at 10:56 am

I’d turn it into a milkshake with whip cream and sprinkles on top!

616
Becky December 9, 2011 at 10:57 am

In college we would put captain crunch on top of plain soft serve vanilla ice cream – it was like eating a slightly frozen bowl of cereal and it was delicious! So I could do that… or I might just go with chocolate syrup and strawberries. Both would be fine by me!

617
Chelsea December 9, 2011 at 10:59 am

Rainbow sprinkles for sure :)

618
Elaine Allen December 9, 2011 at 11:00 am

Hi Amanda -

What an awesome giveaway, I can almost smell the Vanilla and extracts from here! Yummy! And as for how would I eat the vanilla ice cream, well, I would let it almost turn into soup and then savor it. Oh heck, now I need some ice cream – LOL!

Elaine Allen

619
Janice December 9, 2011 at 11:01 am

I would put in some peanut butter too! And mash in a cone. Yum!!

620
Amy December 9, 2011 at 11:01 am

I would definitely make a milkshake or malt. Yum!

I adore Nielsen Massey vanilla. My fingers are crossed!

621
Ashlee Brooke December 9, 2011 at 11:02 am

Have to have toppings then all have to be stirred! ; )

622
BettyC December 9, 2011 at 11:03 am

I’ll add my name to the “plain” column!

623
Lisa December 9, 2011 at 11:03 am

If it’s really good vanilla ice cream, I can easily eat it plan, but I also like a simple topping of some really good homemade hot fudge sauce.

624
Samantha December 9, 2011 at 11:05 am

I’d eat it plain

625
Jennifer @ ItSuxToBeFat December 9, 2011 at 11:05 am

I would put chocolate syrup and nuts on it! Yumm!

626
Shannon December 9, 2011 at 11:06 am

I’d load it up – maybe even put a brownie underneath of it!!

627
Alana December 9, 2011 at 11:06 am

i love plain ice cream, can’t beat it!

628
Beth December 9, 2011 at 11:07 am

No question, hot fudge on top.

629

630
Kathryn Williams December 9, 2011 at 11:11 am

Chocolate and Carmel!!!

631
Danielle DaVault December 9, 2011 at 11:12 am

I would mix in some pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice, and mini chocolate chips. Yum!!!

632
Jamie Snyder December 9, 2011 at 11:13 am

I would add caramel and nuts. Mmmmm

633
Lexi December 9, 2011 at 11:15 am

I’d have to add chocolate syrup and chocolate sprinkles and maybe even a chocolate brownie on the bottom.

634
GinaE December 9, 2011 at 11:15 am

Slice strawberries and whipped cream for me with my ice cream. If I had a brownie to put on the bottom, even better!

635
nicole P December 9, 2011 at 11:17 am

I would put hot fudge, bananas, and whippped cream!

636
Yer December 9, 2011 at 11:20 am

I would top load it up with crushed cookies and drizzle fudge on top!

637
Barbara Gray December 9, 2011 at 11:20 am

now I’m hungry!

638
Judy December 9, 2011 at 11:21 am

I would add just a touch of Rum, yummm!

639
Thao December 9, 2011 at 11:21 am

Hot fudge with chopped peanuts!

641

I like to eat warm peanut butter cookies with my vanilla ice cream (yum). Thanks for the opportunity to win this fabulous vanilla ensemble.

651
Jenny December 9, 2011 at 11:27 am

652
Leah December 9, 2011 at 11:27 am

Vanilla is by far my favorite spice/flavoring!

653
Marci December 9, 2011 at 11:27 am

I would just put hot fudge on it. Perfect and simple.

654
Niancki Anderson December 9, 2011 at 11:28 am

Oh wow! Vanilla is my absolute weakness ! I would definitely eat it the way it is. I love the vanilla flavor, it’s my favorite ! I’m keeping my fingers crossed on this “give away”. You do come up with some very interesting ones !

Thanks so much !

655
Carrie December 9, 2011 at 11:29 am

most likely I would leave it plain, but sometimes i like to throw chopped reese’s pieces on top

656
Kim S. December 9, 2011 at 11:29 am

I would definitely add toppings! I’m thinking hot fudge, sprinkles, or chocolate chips. Yum!

657
Lisa December 9, 2011 at 11:29 am

Pile on the toppings!!

658
Doris December 9, 2011 at 11:30 am

I’d put some type of topping on it. But I’ve never been know to turn down a bowl of ice cream w/o topping either.

659
Alexandria December 9, 2011 at 11:31 am

I would make it into a milkshake too, with a little added vanilla extract to make it super ridiculously vanilla. Yum

660
Krystal @ {Mrs. Regueiro's Plate} December 9, 2011 at 11:31 am

I love vanilla ice cream with brownies folded in and some caramel on top. YUM!!!

661
Melinda Shapro December 9, 2011 at 11:31 am

I would load it up, with chocolate sauce, mini M&Ms, nuts and whipped cream!

662
Verna December 9, 2011 at 11:34 am

I would just have some sprinkles on it or caramel.

663
Karly December 9, 2011 at 11:34 am

I would add fresh cut strawberries and my husband would add chocolate syrup and mini chocolate chips.

664
Susan December 9, 2011 at 11:35 am

Not sure which to choose. Think that I would try them all!!!!!!

665
SalBug December 9, 2011 at 11:35 am

666
Betsy Eicher December 9, 2011 at 11:36 am

667
Demetria December 9, 2011 at 11:38 am

Lori December 9, 2011 at 11:39 am

I usually eat mine with just a touch of chocolate syrup and peanuts! Yum, or else the great chocolate milkshake! Love them both.

669
Emily December 9, 2011 at 11:40 am

I LOVE sprinkles. So if I didn’t make a milkshake out of if (with sprinkles of course), then I would leave it plain and eat it with LOADS of sprinkles…maybe a dash of cinnamon on top:)

670
Christy Ziesmer December 9, 2011 at 11:41 am

I would add the chocolate topping that hardens as it gets cold, then top with chocolate syrup & caramel. Yummy!

671
Debby December 9, 2011 at 11:42 am

There is nothing like good vanilla when you are baking. These sound wonderful.

Oh and now you have me craving a vanilla milk shake, darn you.

672
Beth Gupta December 9, 2011 at 11:43 am

I’d pour on some caramel and M&M’s… and maybe some Reese’s peanut butter cups? Too much?? Nah.. of course not. :)

673
Laura Bagley December 9, 2011 at 11:43 am

I would have lots of carmel syrup and raspberries. YUMMY! (Would sound good as a smoothie as well)

674
Amanda T. December 9, 2011 at 11:44 am

I LOVE homemade ice cream so I would eat that plain! But store ice cream I would have at least one topping on.

675
Kim December 9, 2011 at 11:44 am

I like dark chocolate and almonds on top of vanilla ice cream.

676
Glynis December 9, 2011 at 11:44 am

Nothing is better than warm blackberry syrup and crumbled up pie crust on top of vanilla ice cream. Just like grandma used to make!

677
Brooke December 9, 2011 at 11:45 am

I’d make my ice cream into a banana split- bananas, ice cream, hot fudge sauce, lots of crushed peanuts, and some cherries on top!

678
Laura December 9, 2011 at 11:46 am

Hot fudge and salty, crunchy nuts for me!

679
Anamarie R. December 9, 2011 at 11:47 am

680
Tracy Momofallgirlz December 9, 2011 at 11:48 am

Anything vanilla is incredible!

681
LaRonda December 9, 2011 at 11:49 am

I would load mines up with almonds, hot fudge, bananas and whipped cream!

Lrondiz@hotmail.com

682
Tiffany December 9, 2011 at 11:49 am

I would probably turn it into a milkshake. maybe put some caramel on it.

683
Sarah S. December 9, 2011 at 11:49 am

I would definitely have to sprinkle some broken up peanut brittle on top…YUM!!

684
Katelyn December 9, 2011 at 11:49 am

I load my ice cream up! Chocolate, caramel, sprinkles, cookie dough, chocolate pieces and all sorts of wonderful-ness! :)

685
Tracey December 9, 2011 at 11:50 am

I would add chocolate syrup, ground flax seed and wheat germ! Sounds like I’m trying to make it all healthy and stuff, but really it just tastes great that way! :-)

686
jessjess7304 December 9, 2011 at 11:50 am

I would for sure eat it plain!

687
Heather Michelle December 9, 2011 at 11:51 am

Add some magic shell! That way, you get some chocolate, but its gone before you get to the ice cream and still get that pure vanilla!

688
Betsy December 9, 2011 at 11:51 am

I am plain jane all the way. :) Although a little homemade hot fudge is good too. :)

689
Theresa December 9, 2011 at 11:52 am

Chocolate syrup!!!!

690
Amanda M December 9, 2011 at 11:53 am

691
Cindy December 9, 2011 at 11:54 am

I love fresh strawberries and would add thoses to my ice cream.

692
JEN December 9, 2011 at 11:54 am

Cover it with Hersheys chocolate syrup and chopped cocktail peanuts. mmmm

693
Max December 9, 2011 at 11:55 am

I would definitely add some berries on top of that ice cream. Probably some strawberries, raspberries, maybe even a few blue berries.

694
Jackie L December 9, 2011 at 11:56 am

Cover it with Chocolate !! :)

695
Gretchen December 9, 2011 at 11:56 am

love to have chocolate chips and pecans with it!

696
Natalee Darden December 9, 2011 at 11:56 am

This Christmas I am making homemade Icecream. I will have to indulge and purchase some Tahitian vanilla! Perfect! I have wanted to make my own! I can’t wait to try it!

697
Jill W December 9, 2011 at 11:57 am

I love vanilla ice cream all by itself, especially if it’s vanilla bean ice cream, but if I had to add a topping it would probably be hot fudge!

698
Gigikay December 9, 2011 at 11:58 am

Love the toppings, Chocolate and more Chocolate.

699
Tricia @ SweeterThanSweets December 9, 2011 at 12:00 pm

I want Magic Shell on my ice cream, always! Thanks for letting us enter to win!

700
Carmens December 9, 2011 at 12:00 pm

Ohhhhh – I would put one big fuzzy socks, put in a Christmas Story and warm brownie up and let the ice cream slowly melt all over it. Sit on the couch and disappear into heaven!

701
Lindsay J. December 9, 2011 at 12:01 pm

Oh I would be in heaven if I won this!!
I would crumble up some cookies and then pour lots of hot fudge over the top. YUM!

702
Janet Thwaits December 9, 2011 at 12:02 pm

I am a vanilla freak…..I love vanilla….this would be like euphoria!!!

703
Lori Kae December 9, 2011 at 12:07 pm

I would add some crushed cookies and/or mini or mint chocolate chips! :) A milkshake like this would be even better. :) Thanks for the chance.

704
Lauren December 9, 2011 at 12:07 pm

Mmmmm…. caramel sauce or a fruit puree!

705
Haley Hill December 9, 2011 at 12:08 pm

I just like chocolate syrup on mine! Sometimes I’ll add some chocolate chips too! Yumma

706
Sara Fehling December 9, 2011 at 12:09 pm

I’d top the bowl with chocolate syrup and salted nuts. YUM! Oh, and maybe a little caramel sauce too. :)

707
Andrea Watts December 9, 2011 at 12:09 pm

Milkshake! I love it almost melted.

708
Kim G December 9, 2011 at 12:09 pm

Oooooh, the possibilities are endless, really. But, I’m a sucker for the plain ole’ vanilla with hot fudge/chocolate syrup sundae. Nice heaping helping of whipped cream and some toasted peanuts…..mmmmmmmmmmmm…..good! ;) K, think I’ve decided on what I’m having for lunch………..

709
Carrie Beth December 9, 2011 at 12:10 pm

I’d add some balsamic vinegar, yum!

710
Ify December 9, 2011 at 12:11 pm

Hot fudge and homemade caramel!

711
Jennifer S December 9, 2011 at 12:13 pm

If we’re talking vanilla ice cream then I ALWAYS load up the chocolate syrup or caramel syrup. If we’re talking vanilla froyo then I reach for the rainbow sprinkles.
Without fail.

712
Lori Jensen December 9, 2011 at 12:13 pm

I’d add a warm brownie, homemade fudge and caramel sauce.

713
Alyce R. December 9, 2011 at 12:14 pm

I’m usually a plain-jane kind of girl but being that it’s almost lunchtime, and I am starving, I’d say that I would have to pile the vanilla icecream on top of a warm brownie; add some whipped topping and drizzle with chocolate sauce. Yum-o!

714
Sara December 9, 2011 at 12:14 pm

I like Kevins chocolate and peanut butter idea!

715
Amanda December 9, 2011 at 12:16 pm

I LOVE peanut butter milkshakes! But lately I like adding little chocolate chips!

716
Christine December 9, 2011 at 12:19 pm

My favorite with vanilla ice cream is crushed up nilla wafers, fresh strawberries and whipped cream.

717
Emilee December 9, 2011 at 12:20 pm

I would add a drizzle of caramel. I die! =]

718
Jennifer December 9, 2011 at 12:22 pm

I definitely would be adding a whole lot of Peanut Butter cups to it!!

719
ElleBee December 9, 2011 at 12:23 pm

Mandarin oranges and chocolate syrup…divine!

720
Denae December 9, 2011 at 12:23 pm

I would definitely pour some form of chocolate on top.

721
Azalea Perkins Chriss December 9, 2011 at 12:23 pm

I would put my Vanilla Ice cream ontop of the Oreo Chocolate Chip Cookie Brownies that I made. By the way thank you for the receipe ;)

722
Amy L December 9, 2011 at 12:23 pm

Turn it into a rootbeer float!

723
Katie December 9, 2011 at 12:24 pm

I’d put some caramel on the ice cream and maybe some sprinkles!!

724
shanna December 9, 2011 at 12:24 pm

I love it with chopped bananas and hot fudge! Or on top of hot apple pie or crumble! Yum!!

725
Nicole Epperson December 9, 2011 at 12:24 pm

I would add some hot fudge, roasted vanilla pecans and toasted coconut!Yum~

726
Miranda December 9, 2011 at 12:25 pm

I LOVE cookie dough – my favorite is cookie dough mix ins :-) This is the neatest giveaway! Thank you so much for giving us all the chance to win!!!

727
Marla December 9, 2011 at 12:26 pm

I would load it up with peanut butter, pb cups, hot fudge & whipped cream!! YUM!!

728
Ashley Parker December 9, 2011 at 12:27 pm

Ice cream is my absolute favorite thing to eat! When I’m being really bad, I eat it with oreos, hot fudge, and rainbow sprinkles :)

729
Renea west December 9, 2011 at 12:27 pm

I like to top mine with a little chocolate.

730
Amanda December 9, 2011 at 12:28 pm

There’s something about chocolate chips on vanilla ice cream that makes my taste buds sing. I love how the chips get cold and crunchy against the smooth vanilla ice cream!

731
Lisa December 9, 2011 at 12:28 pm

Oh plain all the way! I wouldn’t dare cover up the goodness of vanilla ice cream!! On Man! I love ice cream!!!! Thanks!

732
Emily December 9, 2011 at 12:28 pm

I would definitely load it up with toppings, I’m with Kevin, chocolate and peanut butter!!!

733
Kristin T December 9, 2011 at 12:29 pm

I would put a scoop on my brownies!

734
Christa December 9, 2011 at 12:31 pm

I would go with warm cherry pie filling but one of my boys would have it with cashews and Kit Kat pieces and the other with hot fudge, caramel, and Snickers pieces- what a combo!

735
Debbie Painter December 9, 2011 at 12:31 pm

I would top it with Hot Fudge & Yummy Caramel!!! What a Fantastic Giveaway!!!
Thank you so much for the chance to win!!!!

736
Kalyn December 9, 2011 at 12:32 pm

I would put strawberries and strawberry sauce on it. Yum!

737
Stephanie December 9, 2011 at 12:32 pm

I love plain ole vanilla ice cream!! =)

738
SheRocS December 9, 2011 at 12:33 pm

I would cover it in chopped up candy bar sprinkles and then shove it b/t 2 fabulous, warm, chocolate chip cookies and make it into one of my fav desserts… dun, dun, dun….”the cookie sandwich”, I mean can you really go wrong with that? I think not.

739
Rich December 9, 2011 at 12:34 pm

I would make some kind of float. I like ice cream with all kinds of stuff on top.

740
TJ December 9, 2011 at 12:34 pm

I’d load it up, if I could. Lol, I have gestational diabetes at the moment, so no ice cream for me. Maybe in about a month or two after this wee one is in my arms, not my belly! :-) Thanks, Amanda!

741
sharon @ Lilikoi Joy December 9, 2011 at 12:34 pm

Mmm, I love a good vanilla ice cream with hot salted caramel sauce, AND a little hot fudge. I’d eat it for awhile just as-is while the sauces were still warm, then I’d stir it up in the bowl until it was the consistency of a Wendy’s frosty and eat the rest of it. I might be tempted to lick the bowl too. :)

742
Omega December 9, 2011 at 12:35 pm

I like vanilla ice cream with the chocolate shell hardener on top. Yum!

743
Emily December 9, 2011 at 12:35 pm

I like my vanilla ice cream with maple syrup and toasted walnuts, but I often end up eating it plain.

744
dori December 9, 2011 at 12:35 pm

PB sauce and crushed oreos pieces. mmmm.

745
Michelle P December 9, 2011 at 12:39 pm

I would top it with crushed double stuf oreos!!! :) YUM!

746
Stacey December 9, 2011 at 12:39 pm

I would definitely add some chocolate and salted caramel sauce!

747
Melissa R December 9, 2011 at 12:39 pm

If it’s really good vanilla ice cream it doesn’t need any toppings!

748
Kathy December 9, 2011 at 12:41 pm

I’d pile it high with chocolate syrup =) Not a huge icecream fan

749
Trish December 9, 2011 at 12:42 pm

If it’s vanilla, load it up, baby! I’ll also add plenty of caramel if it’s coffee ice cream. YUM!

750
Kelly December 9, 2011 at 12:43 pm

Ooh! What a nice giveaway! Depending on what I had around, I’d definitely go for some caramel topping, possibly mixed with chocolate as well. Great. Now I want ice cream. ;)

751
Tanya Leavitt December 9, 2011 at 12:44 pm

Oh how i love Vanilla ice cream.I would add root beer to it and make a root beer float.

752
Emily December 9, 2011 at 12:44 pm

I’m with Kevin- chocolate and pb on top for sure!

753
Erin December 9, 2011 at 12:45 pm

I’d add chocolate! Vanilla ice cream is just a vehicle to get the choclate into my mouth!

754
Jocelyn December 9, 2011 at 12:45 pm

Amanda we are obviously kindred spitirs because I would leave it plain but make it a milkshake too. Yum.

755
52scrap December 9, 2011 at 12:47 pm

I love mini chocolate chips and whip cream!!! YUM! :)

756
Melinda Foil December 9, 2011 at 12:50 pm

I love plain vanilla ice cream, but nothing beats adding some chopped pecans and real whipping cream to the top!

757
India H December 9, 2011 at 12:53 pm

I’d definitely grab some brownies or maybe some cookie dough to pop on top of that ice cream! You can’t forget hot fudge or caramel sauce either. Yay!

758
Caitlin December 9, 2011 at 12:53 pm

I’d eat it like Kevin! Add chocolate chips and a scoop of peanut butter!

759
Sabrina Jackson December 9, 2011 at 12:54 pm

For me it depends on what kind of vanilla ice cream. For regular vanilla, I would add some chocolate and sprinkles. If it’s vanilla bean, I would leave it plain. Vanilla bean is so delicious!

760
DeAnne Smith December 9, 2011 at 12:57 pm

oooh….what a hard decision. I’m torn between chocolate sauce and walnuts or adding some almond extract and crushing some waffle cone on top. mmmmm….now I want ice cream. :)

761
Beth Erkers December 9, 2011 at 12:57 pm

Plain!! I love to crunch on the bits of vanilla seeds and savor the flavor :o)

762
Amy December 9, 2011 at 12:57 pm

I’m a salty sweet girl, so I do love adding peanut butter!

763
Michelle December 9, 2011 at 12:58 pm

I would add fruit and granola.

764
Ellen December 9, 2011 at 12:58 pm

Hot fudge, M&Ms, hot caramel, marshmallow cream, bananas, some cherries, and I’d probably add a brownie in there, essentially I’d have “the works”. Life is Good :)

765
Jill t December 9, 2011 at 12:59 pm

Yummy!

Due to dairy allergies in our house, I would make some coconut vanilla ice cream with our ice cream maker.

766
Mary December 9, 2011 at 12:59 pm

It depends on the brand. If it’s not that tasty by itself, then I would add toppings. If it’s a good brand, then I’d eat it plain.

767
Carri Ann December 9, 2011 at 1:00 pm

I would put that vanilla ice cream on top of a brownie, then cover it all with hot fudge! MMMMMmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

768
sara December 9, 2011 at 1:00 pm

Might sound crazy, but crushed up saltine crackers…love the sweet and salty. :)

769
Alvina December 9, 2011 at 1:01 pm

I’d eat it plain… esp if it’s like French Vanilla… and if I had toppings, maybe throw in a few chocolate chips.

770
Tiffani December 9, 2011 at 1:01 pm

Can’t have vanilla without cookie dough.

771
Sam @ The Second Lunch December 9, 2011 at 1:02 pm

Depends on the season. In summer, I’d add some macerated strawberries and a sprinkle of black pepper. In winter, maybe some stewed dried fruits, and a pour of brandy or amaretto.

772
Paul December 9, 2011 at 1:03 pm

Aged balsamic vinegar :)

773
Morgan M December 9, 2011 at 1:03 pm

I love vanilla ice cream with fresh raspberries and chocolate sauce!

774
Dani @ Cloud 8½ December 9, 2011 at 1:04 pm

I’d pour some peanut butter and chopped Reese’s cups on top!

775
Lynne December 9, 2011 at 1:05 pm

Chocolate syrup on top!

776
Selena December 9, 2011 at 1:06 pm

Toppings! Nuts and hot caramel. Yum!!

777
Susan J December 9, 2011 at 1:08 pm

Oh, I gotta pour some chocolate on there!!

778
Karen December 9, 2011 at 1:09 pm

Usually plain, sometimes with a chocolate sauce.

779
Kristen December 9, 2011 at 1:10 pm

I would stir in cinnnamon and mini chocolate chips!

780
Allie Q December 9, 2011 at 1:11 pm

Pound cake with fresh strawberries and whip cream Yum!

781
Vicki December 9, 2011 at 1:14 pm

Would love to have some vanilla for the snow cream we will make this winter.

782
jenny December 9, 2011 at 1:14 pm

i’d mix in some crumbled mint brownie. it’s like a smashed up ice cream sandwich. :)

783
Heidi December 9, 2011 at 1:15 pm

Vanilla ice cream? Not when I get done with it. First, I’m adding super chunky peanut butter and chocolate syrup. Then, salted crispy chips. Nothing goes better with ice cream than potato chips, well maybe french fries but that’s debatable.

784
Heather December 9, 2011 at 1:15 pm

I would add hot fudge to it. Nothing better than vanilla ice cream and hot fudge! :)

785
Melissa December 9, 2011 at 1:16 pm

I would definitely add hot fudge and whipped cream!

786
Tara @ Creole Paperie December 9, 2011 at 1:22 pm

I slice a banana over the top and add just a tiny bit of chocolate sauce & caramel sauce. Yum!

787
shay December 9, 2011 at 1:23 pm

A little hot fudge, a few strawberries. Yum

788
Kristi J December 9, 2011 at 1:26 pm

I’d have to add a dollop of homemade strawberry freezer jam and a drizzle of chocolate syrup!

789
Maggie @ Midwestern {Sewing} Girl December 9, 2011 at 1:27 pm

Oh, what a wonderful giveaway! Thank you so much for the chance to win! Hmmm…vanilla ice cream, huh? I would add chocolate sauce, caramel sauce & pretzels…oh man…yum…;)

790
Lindsay December 9, 2011 at 1:27 pm

I’d put it on top of some homemade peach cobbler :)

791
Laurie Ann Phinney December 9, 2011 at 1:28 pm

Dear Amanda –
Vanilla is My All Time Favorite Flavor and Favorite Scent – Hands Down. I Wouldn’t Add a Thing – The More Vanill-a-e, the Better. Even a Dab Behind Each Ear Brightens the Dullest of Winter Days. Smiles…
Thank You For the Opportunity to Win a Batch of Vanilla Heaven!
Hugs from Laurie AKA Idgie

792
valerie schucht December 9, 2011 at 1:28 pm

plain vanilla here too. but if a milkshake was an option I would def go with that!

793
LaWanda December 9, 2011 at 1:32 pm

Although I am not an ice cream fan, I do like the banana split flavor. Whenever I eat it (which is rarely), I like to top it with chocolate fudge sauce and pecans… yummy.

794
Jill December 9, 2011 at 1:33 pm

It would depend on my mood. I probably would go plain vanilla most of the time but there are other times I would add chocolate and nuts.

795
Melissa Jackson December 9, 2011 at 1:34 pm

If given the option, I would always have vanilla ice cream with Jack’s (my husband’s grandpa) homemade chocolate sauce…AMAZING!

796
Angela December 9, 2011 at 1:35 pm

I love ice cream in just about any form it comes in. If given a bowl of vanilla ice cream, I’d add flaked coconut, walnuts, and chocolate syrup. Yum!

797
Andrea Petersen December 9, 2011 at 1:36 pm

Hilary December 9, 2011 at 1:37 pm

My new favorite “mix-in” is chunky peanut butter! My old favorite is Nestle Quick powder with peanuts. Such an awesome giveaway – thanks!!!

799
Courtney December 9, 2011 at 1:38 pm

I would either pour a caramel sauce on it, or mix it with m&m’s. Mmmm.

800
Diane Loviza December 9, 2011 at 1:42 pm

I grew up in a family with 7 kids…it was wonderful, but money was very tight. Mom used to buy ‘imitation’ vanilla extract, because that’s what we could afford. I’ll never forget the first thing I tasted with real vanilla – French Vanilla ice cream, with all of those wonderful tiny black dots of flavor. Such a great memory! Here’s hoping I get a chance to try some new vanilla items…

801
Maggie Mae December 9, 2011 at 1:44 pm

I love anything and everything crunchy or salty on vanilla ice cream!!

802
Therese W December 9, 2011 at 1:44 pm

How awesome are all of those extracts!

803
Alberta December 9, 2011 at 1:46 pm

I like to spice up vanilla ice cream with toppings. Usually my toppings of choice are what I have on hand… chocolate syrup, crushed peanuts and whipped topping. Yummo!

Thanks for the opportunity to win!

804

807
Dayna December 9, 2011 at 1:51 pm

I love to add milk over my vanilla ice cream.

808
Kate December 9, 2011 at 1:52 pm

I would add some fresh strawberries (preferably from our garden…but since it’s not that time of year….frozen would do!) YUMMMM

809
Rebecca December 9, 2011 at 1:54 pm

Plain vanilla ice cream is my favorite – no toppings for me! :) What a wonderful giveaway!

810
Cindy December 9, 2011 at 1:56 pm

811
Sarah S December 9, 2011 at 1:56 pm

812
ashlea white December 9, 2011 at 1:57 pm

hot fudge, choc. sprinkles, whole milk…so yum!

813
Petra December 9, 2011 at 1:57 pm

I’d put a little chocolate on top and then stir it until it’s like a milkshake in a bowl. I’ve done this since I was little, and my family thinks it’s weird :)

814
Annette Mummery December 9, 2011 at 1:58 pm

822
Sonjasunshine December 9, 2011 at 2:08 pm

Well, I’d load myself up a classic ole hot fudge sundae – chocolate syrup, whipped cream and a cherry (or 2 or 10) on top. No nuts for me, though!

823
Katie December 9, 2011 at 2:12 pm

I would load it up!! Sometimes I use a million different toppings, and sometimes I just like a lot of one topping. Sometimes I gotta go with what I got, which is usually holiday colored sprinkles….from a holiday that is at least 6 months away.

824
Audrey December 9, 2011 at 2:12 pm

Chocolate syrup, whipped cream, and a few cherries!!!

830
Heather Spooner December 9, 2011 at 2:15 pm

If I have Oreos in the house, I’d crumble those into the vanilla. But if not, I would eat it plain. Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

831
Katherine C December 9, 2011 at 2:16 pm

I haven’t had ice cream in years. If I had to eat it I would blend it up with oreos in my vitamix!

832
sharon b dale December 9, 2011 at 2:17 pm

vanilla homemade waffles with vanilla sugar…yummy!

833
Emily December 9, 2011 at 2:17 pm

It’s a toss up between eating it plain and topping it with homemade strawberry sauce and mini chocolate chips! Yum!!

836
Kimberly Sterling December 9, 2011 at 2:20 pm

840
Kim caldwell December 9, 2011 at 2:23 pm

I love putting Magic shell on vanilla ice-cream.

841
Ashley December 9, 2011 at 2:24 pm

Kevin has it right…gotta go with the chocolate!

842
Jen December 9, 2011 at 2:25 pm

Vanilla ice cream must not be eaten without a rich chocolate fudge sauce. I love the contrast between the cold ice cream and warm fudge!

843

850

851

859
Sheryl G December 9, 2011 at 2:56 pm

I would eat it plain. There is nothing better than a great bowl of vanilla ice cream!

860
Linda Hare December 9, 2011 at 2:58 pm

I love real vanilla. For a while I couldn’t figure out what was wrong with the vanilla I was using as the flavor just wasn’t strong or right. Then I realized it was immitation vanilla. Now I pay close attention to the labels and only buy real vanilla extract. It makes a world of differences in your cooking.

861
Sue December 9, 2011 at 2:58 pm

Really good vanilla ice cream needs some hot fudge, caramel and pecans….YUM!

862
Haley December 9, 2011 at 3:01 pm

872
Jennifer Dayley December 9, 2011 at 3:15 pm

All of what I’ve read on the comments is great!!! I KNOW this is gonna sound totally weird, but put your ice cream (or make your own) into a good blender, add almost the same amount fresh baby spinach, & blend it. You CANNOT tell the spinach is in there! No joke! Adding any of these vanilla products would make it even better. YUM!!!!! My son doesn’t eat any veges. This is the only way I can get him to eat them. Green ice cream or green smoothies :D

873
Pam C December 9, 2011 at 3:15 pm

Vanilla ice cream with warm honey drizzled over the top and a sprinkle of cinnamon, Yum!

877
JennStar December 9, 2011 at 3:20 pm

I’d add just a bit of fudge and a sprinkle of nuts!!
(btw- the vanilla bean paste is my all time favorite Nielsen Massey product- I don’t use exract anymore, just my paste!!

878
Amy December 9, 2011 at 3:23 pm

I love adding chocolate syrup and mixing it all up into ice cream soup! I know it’s childish, but I much prefer soft serve over solid ice cream!

879
Sandra December 9, 2011 at 3:23 pm

i would definitely have to agree with kevin. chocolate and peanut butter. Reminds me of Reese’s cups. Yummers.

880
Theresa Janke December 9, 2011 at 3:24 pm

Toppings for sure!

895
Melissa December 9, 2011 at 3:36 pm

My newest favorite topping (and it’s healthy because I have to eat healthier to lower my high blood pressure) is wheat germ. I would top that with vanilla ice cream, vanilla yogurt or just about anything else. I’ve even used it as a coating for chicken and it turned out oh so good. Would love to win these vanillas and try various cooking ideas with them.

~ Sincerely ~

Melissa Kalson

896
Jill December 9, 2011 at 3:36 pm

I would have the ice cream plain or maybe just add a few rasberries. Homemade vanilla icecream is meant to be savored!!

897
Angie December 9, 2011 at 3:38 pm

Imagine you have a bowl of vanilla ice cream in front of you. Do you eat it plain or load it up with toppings?

917
jessica w. December 9, 2011 at 4:16 pm

923
Angela L December 9, 2011 at 4:27 pm

If it’s really, really, really good vanilla ice cream (like the type made with the Tahitian Vanilla above!) it goes down plain. If it leaves something to be desired in the vanilla department maybe a little hot fudge or butterscotch!

924
Donna December 9, 2011 at 4:28 pm

I’d eat the vanilla ice cream with hot fudge or caramel sauce…maybe both!

953
April was in CT now CA December 9, 2011 at 5:07 pm

Can I add other ice cream flavors and the fixin’s for a banana split? If so, that’s my choice! I haven’t had a banana split in years.

Topping, for sure! Hot fudge is my favorite, but if I had oreos around, I’d crush some of those on top :D

970
Esther Osburn December 9, 2011 at 5:37 pm

The SWEETER the better!!

982
Jenny Kozar December 9, 2011 at 6:06 pm

Something about plain vanilla ice cream is just so delicious!!

983
Amanda J December 9, 2011 at 6:07 pm

I would definitely put chocolate syrup, marshmallows and a cherry on it.

988
Chelle Chapman December 9, 2011 at 6:33 pm

991
Katarina H December 9, 2011 at 6:41 pm

I would just add some fresh raspberries, preferably ones picked straight from the garden that are still a little warm from the sun. It makes for the perfect bowl of ice cream, so refreshing and the flavours work so well!

992
Lisa December 9, 2011 at 6:42 pm

Oh, there would be chocolate and peanut butter toppings on that ice cream for sure!

The milk shake is a fabulous idea, but i NEED chocolate! xD

1003
Amy C. December 9, 2011 at 7:07 pm

Well it all depends of what flavor of ice cream it is. If it is plain vanilla (and NOT homemade) I would add some chocolate and caramel syrup on it, maybe some M&Ms or Reece’s or maybe even some Butterfinger. But if it’s like some fancy flavor, you don’t need toppings!!!!

1004
Katie December 9, 2011 at 7:09 pm

I like my vanilla ice cream with honey and cinnamon…yum!

1005

1006
ShareABitOfLove December 9, 2011 at 7:18 pm

AmyJ December 9, 2011 at 7:30 pm

I would add just a touch of hot fudge!

1010
Rose December 9, 2011 at 7:33 pm

I would pour Hershey’s syrup over the top and stir it into a sludgy, delicious mess. Yum!

1011
Kelly Robison December 9, 2011 at 7:38 pm

I would eat mine plain but if I were to choose a topping, it would just be good old fashioned Hersey’s chocolate syrup.

1012
julie December 9, 2011 at 7:50 pm

I would leave it plain unless I had summer-ripe berries!

1013
Traci Downing December 9, 2011 at 7:52 pm

I would add cinnamon and a few mini semi sweet choc chips!

1019
Jennifer C December 9, 2011 at 8:08 pm

1020
sarah December 9, 2011 at 8:10 pm

I would add oreo pieces and hot fudge!

1021
Emily December 9, 2011 at 8:12 pm

Definitely paired with a warm brownie :) YUM!

1022
Heather December 9, 2011 at 8:13 pm

If its the old fashioned custardy type of ice cream plain is best or in a waffle cone!

1023
chelsea alexander December 9, 2011 at 8:18 pm

I would load it with toppings! Except no chocolate candies – frozen chocolate is not bueno!

1024
Lyndsi @ Lyndsi and David December 9, 2011 at 8:19 pm

I like crushed kettle chips!

1046

1088
pandora December 9, 2011 at 11:44 pm

If it’s a good quality Vanilla ice cream I eat it plain without any toppings as not to distract from the subtle flavor. And if its a ho-hum store bought vanilla, then love pairing it with salted caramel or lashings of bitter dark chocolate syrup.

I love my vanilla ice cream in a waffle bowl with a little caramel and hot fudge sauce and some pecans sprinkled on top…..usually I just have it plain and it’s just as yummy!!

Tara December 10, 2011 at 8:00 am

I would make a brownie mix, put it in my waffle maker & then with my “brownie waffle I’m going to(im only eating 1quarter of it) place the vanilla ice cream on top & a strawberry purée!! With some homemade vanilla whipped topping, delicious!! …think I may have to go make this now since I’m pregnant it may become a “craving” :)

I come from a long line of ice cream lovers….needless to say we enjoy every way possible! I love vanilla ice cream with some fresh, ripe, in season fruit!

Robin December 10, 2011 at 8:22 am

I love, absolutely LOVE, vanilla ice cream. When I was a little girl, my grandmother would give me a huge scoop of vanilla ice cream on top of a homemade brownie with homemade caramel drizzled on top with whipped cream and fresh pecans from her pecan tree in the front yard! Oh how I miss her! Happy Holidays!!!

1144
Nancy December 10, 2011 at 9:00 am

1152
Katy S December 10, 2011 at 9:41 am

Plain vanilla needs something! However, a nice vanilla bean ice cream I could eat plain. I would probably add some chocolate syrup, or just reach for the New York Super Fudge Chunk!

1153
Kim B December 10, 2011 at 9:50 am

Oooh, I would pour on the chocolate and caramel toppings, complete with whipped cream!

1154

Mmmm…. I love old fashion vanilla ice cream as is. When I want to add a little somethin’ somethin’, it’s fresh fruit- strawberries or peaches.

Thanks for hosting such a tasty giveaway! Happy weekend :)

Katie December 10, 2011 at 10:26 am

1172
Raquel December 10, 2011 at 11:09 am

1173
Mike Brandon December 10, 2011 at 11:12 am

Vanilla ice cream (Here in Texas – it’s Blue Bell Homemade Vanilla) with chocolate and peanut butter sounds good – just add a dash of Tobasco and a little cayenne and either fresh strawberries or strawberry jam. Mix and re-freeze.
Yummmmm!!

The Nielsen Massey products look great. Can’t wait!
