If you're a dairy lover, you likely have a go-to ice cream flavor at the grocery store or your favorite scoop shop. And while classics like chocolate chip cookie dough will probably never go out of style, not every ice cream flavor has survived over the years.

We decided to take a trip down memory lane and find some of the best and weirdest discontinued ice cream flavors out there. (And, yes, we really wish we'd gotten to try these limited-time Publix offerings.)

Black walnut isn't an ice cream flavor you typically hear about. And much to the chagrin of nut lovers, it's not one that's on shelves anymore. Even the late Herman Cain was a devoted fan of the limited-edition flavor.

This was technically frozen yogurt, but it's still scoopable and found in the freezer aisle. Sadly, the chocolate-centric flavor was discontinued in May.

This limited-time flavor hit McDonald's in 2019. But we wouldn't mind seeing it become a permanent fixture on the menu alongside the Oreo and M&M McFlurry offerings.

Topping a slice of apple pie with apple pie ice cream feels meta. But it's not something you can do anymore, as this ice cream flavor was retired by Baskin-Robbins.

Edy's/Dreyer's Chocolate Malt Frozen Custard

The malty taste of a diner classic, without leaving your home? For a while, that was an achievable reality. Sadly, this creamy custard is no longer in stores.

Starbucks Java Chip Ice Cream

Sure, you can get a frozen coffee treat at Starbucks with the java chip Frappuccino. But if you're looking for java chip ice cream at the grocery store, you'll be sorely disappointed. Starbucks no longer makes ice cream, much to fans' chagrin.

Publix Red Velvet Cake Ice Cream

Another frozen treat that's vanished from Publix, this ice cream brought all the flavor of red velvet cake into an ice cream pint. Unfortunately, it was a limited-edition spring 2019 offering.
