The ice creams designed by the talented culinary alchemists at Dr. Chocolate were voted "Best Ice Cream" by Chronicle readers one year, and we still managed to leave them out of the ice cream parlor listings two years in a row. The delectable chocolate ice creams are all at the original North Lamar outlet in unforgettable flavors such as Infinity Double Chocolate, chocolate chip cookie dough, Orange Starburst Chocolate, Snowberry (white chocolate with chocolate-covered strawberries), and Bumpy Road (chocolate with marshmallows and chocolate-covered almonds).
