Q: Chinese-brand ice cream: what's your verdict?

I love those chocolate cone type ones that have some sort of chocolate disk at the top. Otherwise, apart from one in yellow packaging that has a chocolate bar in the center, I can't think of any that have blown me away. I once bought a green cone assuming it was mint choc chip, turned out it was tea flavored. Also had a similar incident where I bought one that was green and it turned out to be frozen beans.

You must have enjoyed 'green beans ice cream'. I love 'green beans'. However, my father was a dentist, so I rarely eat ice cream! It is bad for your teeth, 'they' said.

Is that called 'inherited knowledge'?

I usually avoid the Chinese ice cream brands. I think the ice cream itself shows obvious signs of lacking dairy products.  E.g. picking something from Nestle seems to be a better choice, even if produced locally.

 

The green bean ice as mentioned by icnif77, I will not get addicted to those, but worth trying

 

The part of the country I live in is this time of year so warm that attempts in eating ice cream, unless doing so in an air conditioned room, will always have to have the nature of a speed eating contest. So I do not eat as much ice cream as I should.

I like the mango and peach flavored ice creams that come on a stick. Also, magnum bars (similar to a dove bar) are pretty good, although they're like 4-5 times more expensive (~7 rmb)

I prefer Dairy QUeen all day any day just as long as they turn it upside down. I don't mind eating the chinese icecream if the one's in the cones are actually a chinese brand. My favorite type of icecream is not from China but from Korea. It's called the shark icecream! Only sold in Korea I guess!

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
