Supermarket Ice Cream Favorites

Here are the four varieties we reach for at the store most often.

The frozen-food case at pretty much any grocery store is packed with an overwhelming selection of ice cream, from party-size boxes of Snickers-studded vanilla to artfully designed containers of gelato. What to choose? Here are the four varieties we reach for most often. Unless noted, all are available at most supermarkets.

Ciao Bella Coconut Sorbet

$4.99 for 14 ounces

Brightly aromatic, tropical, and even better topped with a spoonful of high-quality dark rum.

Häagen-Dazs Vanilla Ice Cream

$4.79 for 14 ounces

The little black dress of ice cream—terrific on its own but complements an array of desserts.

Breyers Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

$3.50 to $4.99 for 1½ quarts

We have a nostalgic affection for these soft, bracing scoops.

Ben & Jerry’s Banana Peanut Butter Greek Frozen Yogurt

$4.59 a pint

The standout from the Vermont ice-cream maker’s new line of tangy Greek yogurts.
