Vanilla Ice Cream is one of the most popular flavors of ice cream, and some say that of all ice cream eaten, this flavor is eaten more than 50% of the time! Vanilla ice cream has a very mild flavor that does not overwhelm other flavors, it is therefore a popular choice to be eaten in sundaes, ice cream sodas, cakes, and on its own! Within vanilla ice cream, you’ll usually find two different flavors – Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream flavor, and French Vanilla Ice Cream flavor. Homemade vanilla ice cream is the basic version, tasting mild, with a slight to-no after taste…it usually has a yellowish color. French vanilla ice cream is a bit more complicated, and is custard-based, and is richer and creamier…it usually has a whiter color, sometimes with flecks of brown, and will have a stronger (though still mild) taste to many people…some may find it ever-so-slightly bitter.
