Some say there is no better flavor of ice cream than the one, the only, strawberry. Others argue strawberry ice cream is a sorry excuse for a flavor, saying it tastes artificial. But fans of strawberry point to the classic strawberry shortcake bars as reason enough for loving the flavor. What do you think: Is strawberry ice cream actually good?

There is nothing redeeming about strawberry ice cream whatsoever. Even the fact that it's ice cream is not enough to bring this flavor into the top spot some people assume it deserves. As one writer puts it in the Yale Daily News: 

It is a truth universally acknowledged that everyone hates strawberry ice cream. 

The "strawberry" aspect of this flavor is nothing short of a bold-faced lie. The artificial flavoring poisons otherwise well-meaning ice cream, and if you are unlucky enough to get pieces of "actual strawberry" in your sundae, good luck crunching down on those frozen berries. Your teeth will not thank you! 

The Yale Daily News continues on its crusade: 

...strawberry ice cream is particularly pernicious because it prevents us from fully enjoying other flavors. While a cookies and cream tub lasts about two hours, a strawberry one stays in the dining hall for three days, stealing precious real estate from other, more popular flavors (Fig. 1).

Others argue that strawberry ice cream, when done right, is one of the most delectable treats available. As Serious Eat's Ed Levine puts it:

When it's good, strawberry ice cream is as good as ice cream gets. That means it has an intense strawberry flavor, is magnificently creamy and smooth, and avoids the classic strawberry ice cream pitfall of having too many frozen chunks of not-very-sweet strawberry.

Plus, where would we all be without the Good Humor Strawberry Shortcake bars?
