    better or more?

    Which is preferable: I like (something) better or I like it more? Which do you like best or Which do you like most?
    Is there any difference in meaning if both variants are possible?

    Thank you in advance.

    Re: better or more?

    No preference.

    "I like chocolate ice cream more than vanilla" and
    "I like chocolate ice cream better than vanilla" have the same meaning.

    Similarly,

    "But I like butterscotch best" and
    "But I like butterscotch most" are equivalent.
