As long as a shop uses quality ingredients, I think flavor selection is totally subjective and hard to rank. Rick's definitely has smooth ice creams and a good mix of basic flavors and some very interesting ones too, but I found that nothing FLOORED me, though my boyfriend LOVED the Industrial Chocolate.
Good basics (Chocolate, Coffee, Raspberry, Vanilla Bean) and more exotic (Kulfi, White chocolate w/ Ginger, Georgia Peach). All smooth and delicious, Rick's is definitely the choice as your local ice cream joint w/ some style but nothing worth driving great distances for so I am the search continues for my favorite killer chocolate and killer coffee flavor mixes, flavors worth driving out for.

Rick's Rather Rich is hands down the best in the bay area!!!!!...(and I'm not just saying that because I use to work there!!!).....I loved my job making Ice Creamand was taught by the master Rick himself......I did not work for the people that own it now, but they have not changed the quality one bit....try the pumpkin with a little chocolate...yum yum yum....keep up the good work!!!!

Make sure to try the flavor first - a lot of these are not so great - the chocolate flavors are surprisingly NOT creamy and dull in flavor, but they do have exotic flavors like rose and kulfi - and the kulfi is really good - lots of chuncks of pistachios,really rich, and tons of saffron flavor.

A silicon valley tradition.
VERY rich ice cream, but sooo worth it. Made in-shop.
Try the computer chip, in raspberry or orange. Ugh, I miss this.
Workers are funny. If you go in late, they often ""double up"" on the scoops (which is nice since they've become a bit pricey). Be sure to drop some change in the ""401(k)"" jar for the counter-people.

I CAN'T HELP BUT TELL YOU ABOUT THIS LITTLE BIT OF ICE CREAM HEAVEN. THE ORIGINAL ""RICK"" HAS RETIRED, BUT HIS LEGACY HAS BEEN HANDED DOWN TO CAPABLE HANDS. THIS IS -BAR-NONE-THE BEST ICE CREAM THERE IS. THEY HAVE FLAVORS THAT NO ONE ELSE HAS EVEN TRIED.JUST GREAT. IT'S A SMALL SHOP AND YOU MAY HAVE TO WAIT A BIT,BUT WORTH THE WAIT.
