As soon as the temperatures outside begin to remind us we live in the hot, humid state of Florida, my family members start searching the freezer for ice cream. My husband is a bit of an ice cream aficionado, always willing to try any new flavor, particularly if it's staring him in the face on the freezer door. Our tasters were happy to take on the challenge as well. We tasted the new flavors of four brands of ice cream. A couple of them wouldn't last very long in my house.
