Which is the superior ice cream flavor: chocolate or vanilla?

Chocolate and vanilla ice cream are the age-old classics. The pair consistently rank as the top two favorite ice cream flavors in the U.S., above their more complicated counterparts like mint chocolate chip and cookies and cream. Some say vanilla is the superior flavor of the two because it is the epitome of simple, subtle flavor. Chocolate-lovers, on the other hand, say no dessert is complete without as much chocolate as possible. What do you think?

Vanilla is the ideal ice cream flavor because of its simplicity. For this reason, it is the perfect base for an ice cream sundae, where rivers of hot fudge, mountains of cookie crumbles, and a touch of sprinkles improve overall flavor, rather than overpower it. As The Odyssey's Sarah Johnson writes: 

Since vanilla is such a light base, you can pair almost anything with it. Now imagine if you added all of these things to chocolate ice cream. You would very quickly end up with a rich, disgusting, sickening mess that no one would want to eat.

Vanilla is light, refreshing, and the ideal ice cream flavor.

Just like vanilla, chocolate can be improved by a great many things, including more chocolate. Why limit the amount of chocolate you are consuming in your dessert? Double chocolate always wins. As one person writes in via Debate.org: 

Chocolate is the ultimate pleasure. Just tasting it effects a euphoria otherwise unknown to mankind. In heaven everything is chocolate. Vanilla is just an ordinary flavor, but chocolate is the divine goodness that life is all about.

Chocolate ice cream will always be better than it's boring, vanilla counterpart.
