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.

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.
