Mint is decidedly one of the most refreshing flavors, doubly so in ice-cream form. The trick to getting your preferred mint flavor is in choosing spearmint or peppermint. Sweet mint, also labeled as spearmint, tastes sweeter when muddled for recipes, while peppermint has a faint menthol flavor. Or try some of the flavored varieties like chocolate, apple, or citrusy orange mint.
