I have loved ice cream for as long as I can remember. When I would go to my Mom-Mom’s and Pop-Pop’s – there was always a 1/2 gallon of REAL Breyer’s Vanilla ice cream. For years, our house only had Breyer’s ice cream in it – we branched out and tried other flavors beside vanilla too. 🙂
Fast forward to 2013 and it is hot as blazes for June 1st – feels more like August 1st. I’ve been doing ‘chores’ all day and wanted some ice cream tonight. I was originally going to hit the drive-thru at Dairy Queen for a Peanut Butter Cup Blizzard (small). I decided I’d go get some Breyer’s Ice Cream with peanut butter cup, chocolate cookie dough or chocolate chip – since I would know the ingredients. Boy was I wrong! I find the Breyer’s with peanut butter cup and it says it is made with Light Ice Cream (and lots of other stuff) – there are so many ingregdients in it – there was the mention of Sugar – 11xs! So then I decided to look at the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough and Chocolate Chip – both made with Frozen Dairy Dessert – with both having at least 3 types of Sugars. Needless to say I was disgusted and disappointed in Breyer’s. What has happened to Breyer’s?
Off I went to the Turkey Hill section – they had ice cream with similar ingredients until I spied Turkey Hill All Natural Ice Cream – I picked the Salted Caramel – 6 ingredients: cream, milk, sugar, caramel, vanilla and salt! The sugar content is higher than I normally get – next time I’ll try the Coffee – 3 less grams of sugar.
So how was the ice cream? It was yummy (a touch sweeter than it needed to be – but still yummy)! I enjoyed it as I watched the opening of Libeled Lady (1936) on TCM.
And in case you haven’t figured it out – I will be purchasing the Turkey Hill All Natural from now on.
