When serving yourself Neopolitan ice cream, do you scoop to get more of a certain flavor, or do you scoop across the grain to get some of each flavor equally? (UQ)

Favorite! I hate vanilla and strawberry so if the only ice cream is Neapolitan I go for as much chocolate as I can

yeah if you only want one flavor then you should just buy that flavor. I try to get equal amounts of everything so when it's almost empty, it won't be just a depressing looking icy lump of vanilla with some traces of chocolate in it or whatever.

Strawberry always mysteriously disappears in my household!

Unless I'm craving a certain flavor, I usually scoop a mixture

Firstly, I don't eat neopolitan ice cream. Secondly, I don't like strawberry or chocolate flavored ice cream, so there is no reason why I would want to purchase some for only one third of it. BUT, if I were to get some, I'd only eat the vanilla ice cream.

I'm a big fan of variety in my food, so mixed.

What's the point of getting Neapolitan if you're just gonna scoop one flavor?

Why would you buy Neapolitan if you dot want all the flavors? If u just want one flavor just buy that.

I'm confused. You took the time to select an answer, go into the comments section and post a comment. Wouldn't it have been easier to just scroll past the question?

Strawberry + vanilla = good. Chocolate + vanilla = even better. Chocolate + strawberry = YUCK!!

Since I am allergic to strawberries I HAVE to be careful and not get any mixed in, so I chose favorite.

I'm surprised the Socialists in Vermont voted 'favorite', one would assume they want a perfectly even portion of everything for everyone

Always scoop the strawberry, but it just seems better contrasted with chocolate and vanilla doesn't it?

Chinky Monkey? I understand that the nature of Neapolitan ice cream has racist implications, but I think you just went too far.

If you have a favorite than get a half gallon of it.

Well some people buy it for parties or just get togethers. And well in my family not everyone likes the same.

Equal parts, but not scooped. I disassemble the box then cut from the block across the grain to get an inch-thick slab of red, white, and brown. It's not much competition against a tub of Cherry Garcia, but it's pretty good.
