favourite ice cream or gelato flavours and where to get them 2009

I thought Strawberry might be a safe bet at Summer's but it was way too sweet, with ice crystals.

What flavours have stood out for you? I'm mostly interested in independent shops, not national/international brands.

My favourites lately are:
Il Gelatiere: Cioccolato, Cioccolato peperoncino, tartufo, menta, fondente, maria, lemon - haven't really liked their non-lemon fruit flavours that much

Soma: Dark Chocolate, lemon, raspberry

Xococava: mango- haven't tried anything else

La Paloma: lemon

Hollywood: Their Valrhona chocolate is ok. Which flavours do you like?

Have no clue what to order at these places:

Greg's - lots of press about the Roasted Marshmallow- but what else does he do well?
Dutch Dreams
Summer's- haven't enjoyed anything I've tried here- what do they do best?
La Bamboche
Dolce on College
Sicilian Ice Cream Factory- have found their products too sweet- but is there a specific flavour they do well?
Sweet Escape Patisserie in the Distilery

And if I head up north, what flavours should I try at Kawartha Dairy?

Where else do you like to go for a scoop or 2?
