Why is coffee ice cream so hard to find at stores?

I finally found it at the woodmans I went to. It felt like a gem when I finally discovered it. Why is it so hard to find, is it a popular item or an unpopular one?

    It's not as popular as other flavors. I love it too--and can rarely find it. 

    You can make your own. Stir a tablespoon of instant coffee into a pint of vanilla ice cream, mix it really well, then re-freeze it.

    If there was a great demand for it, it'd be in the stores. Who needs coffee ice cream when there's Starbucks?

    You are lucky to find any ice cream at all.  We've not had any decent brands here since mid-April.  The basic store brand, generic vanilla, chocolate and strawberry and maybe some ice cream sandwiches are about it.  I miss Blue Bunny and Haagen Daaz.

    I always thought it was popular, but I make my own. If you have some good coffee beans it's easy and the best you'll ever taste.

    1.5 cups whole milk

    1.5 cups heavy cream

    1.5 cups whole coffee beans

    3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed

    1/8 tsp salt

    5 egg yolks

    1 tsp vanilla

    Heat the milk, cream, sugar, salt, coffee to steaming, cover, and steep 60 mins. Uncover, bring back to steaming, temper in the egg yolks, cook to 170-75F, strain out the coffee beans, chill over an ice bath, add the vanilla. Churn.

    I agree - I love coffee flavoured ice cream but never see it in shops.

    I don't think it's unpopular but I guess not many people want it- shame!

    It is not so popular anymore, so really won't be as available as some of the other flavors that are now preferred.

    It’s in my local store

    Guess depends on location

    Because there’s a milk crisis so it’s hard to find ice cream anywhere.

      There's not a milk shortage. Many dairies are dumping milk because bottling plants don't have the capacity to process it right now.
