Rocky Road Ice Cream

When it comes to popular ice cream flavors, particularly in the USA, then Rocky Road has to be on the list. Perhaps because it's chocolatey or perhaps because it's chunky or perhaps because it's chewy, I don't know exactly what makes it so special and popular but it's a great fun ice cream for adults and children alike.
