The Best Ice Cream Flavor: A HuffPost Deathmatch

It's your duty to vote! Come tell us which flavor rules them all.

Summer is here, and ice cream suddenly seems to be growing from trees. We're all about tasting the newest flavors and experimenting with making our own, but the classic flavors are tough to beat. What's the ice cream flavor that makes your heart go pitter-patter?

It was hard enough for us to narrow down the top 8 classic flavors -- now it's up to you to choose the winner. We have a hunch what you'll end up choosing, but we're hoping you surprise us.

Here's how the Ice Cream Deathmatch voting will go down:

Round One voting opens June 5 -- vote right now!

Thursday, June 6 at 12:00am Eastern, Round Two begins.

Friday, June 7 at 12:00am Eastern, you'll be able to vote in Round Three.

Saturday morning, June 8, we'll announce which ice cream is the winner.
