Every time we hed up into Maine or deeper into the MAritimes, I am always pleasantly reminded of the unique flavor of GRAPE NUTS ICE CREAM (Its a vanilla ice cream that contains malt flavor and is pumped through and through with grape nuts cereal slurry). They mix a big laod of grape nuts with a bit of the malted vanilla and pump and swirkl it through a regular vanilla ice cream ) I think its my favorite flavor and I miss it every time I have to head south
I wrote to Hershey Chocolate, Eby's and Turkey Hill and keep getting blown off by their "corporate suits".
Ben abnd Jerry's used to make it as a seasonal thing but since every ice cream company in New England made it, they just flat quit.
Grape Nuts Ice Cream is one of my favourites. A little Caribbean ice cream shop makes it here.
I had wonderful Grape Nut Pie near Rockport about 25 years ago. That was a memorable memorable dessert. So delicious.

My all-time favorites:
Neapolitan ice cream between two wafers
Kilimanjaro ice cream bar (made by HB)
Vienetta ice cream cake
All three I used to love when I was younger, and living in Ireland.

I've never had it in the states but ashta or qashta ice cream. It uses clotted cream, arabic gum and rose water and is super good. Normally is coated with ground pistachios that look like moss or matcha.
Sigh, I wish I lived in NY City for part of the year, if only for the food. This from Village Voice:
Ice cream, for example (photo).
I don't know if I'd like this one, but I might, which is the fun of it.
DeKalb Market Hall
This massive food hall opens in April, joining the Alamo Drafthouse, Target, and other businesses in the City Point development project on the site of Downtown Brooklyn's old Albee Square Mall. Options for takeout and sit-down eats will come from about forty local and regional spots like Hard Times Sundaes, Ample Hills Creamery, and Katz's Delicatessen; there will also be a butcher, fishmonger, and bakery, among other attractions. DeKalb Stage, a show kitchen and event space, will put on workshops and live entertainment for young and grown foodies alike.
