It's a question you'll hopefully have to ask yourself many times over the course of the summer. You're at the soft-serverie and someone is ready to pull down on a nozzle, but which? Vanilla can be synonymous with boring, but sometimes it's all you want. Chocolate, on the other hand—a pretty bold move. And then, ah, the swirl. The best of every world? Or maybe you find that chocolate always consumes the vanilla, even when it seems to be swirled 50-50? Funkier flavors will come and go, but we'll always be faced with the vanilla-chocolate-swirl dilemma. So, what's your pick? Take the poll! »
