From Adam and Eve sprang the family of the whole earth. From Vanilla and Chocolate spring the family of all ice cream. (Well, not technically, but just go with me here). But may I be so bold as to say that without the existence of chocolate, vanilla would not be complete. They are a pair, meant to be together–decreed by the cosmos (or something like that). In any case, Classic Chocolate Ice cream is an essential flavor to have in your repertoire.
