Answer

3 Flavors in Neapolitan Ice Cream

They are: vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry, hence the hint. To be more specific, Neapolitan ice cream is a block of ice cream divided into the three distinct flavors and originated in Naples, Italy.

The title (I Scream) is a homophone of Ice Cream.

Though I have enjoyed letter equations since I was a child, the title gave this one away almost immediately.

It is not always a block either, you can buy Neapolitan ice cream in a tub as well (at least you can here), when the boys were little I used t go to the Ice Cream Factory and buy commercial sized tubs of it.

I thought it was a good one! I didn't get it though - completely missed the title clue. I love letter equations!

A little boring, but most letter equations are, so yeah. Without the title, it would be difficult. With the title, very easy.

Perhaps Babe and cutebug would care to enlighten us on why it was dumb. I mean, it is rather rude to pass comment like that without offering some sort of explanation.
