Like Breyer's ice cream? Think again

Nasty, nasty, nasty. Wish I found out about this much sooner.

Apparently it has nitrogen in it.

Waste of time watching,, If he'd just read the label on the Breyers he'd see that it is NOT Ice Cream it is Frozen Dessert. No where on the label does it say "Ice Cream". It's like comparing apples to oranges.

Yeah. It's identified quite clearly on the label that it's a "frozen dessert".

I wouldn't eat it either.

My breyer's does melt. Don't let the videos fool you. They look nasty because Breyer's uses many many ingredients to thicken their frozen dessert, such as carob beans, guar, glycerides and carrageenan. They are all food grade.

I haven't bought that blue label Breyer's for years...heck, I don't even buy their premium line anymore. I don't know why companies have to mess with their product just to make it more profitable for themselves...we've switched to a different brand altogether. Similar to Becel margarine...I bought it for 20+ years and now they've changed the formula and it tastes and smells like garbage. My family are overjoyed that I've switch to using butter exclusively (was previously used mainly for baking).

I think you may have the answer to your question within your question. It's not good enough for any company to be profitable anymore, companies have a responsibility to their shareholders to always be driving up shareholder value and if you can't sell more ice cream, you'll have to cheapen your ingredients year-over-year until you're no longer selling ice cream but are selling frozen garbage.

It's a real race to the bottom and a shame that our children won't know what real food tastes like, only lowest common denominator "food-like" substances.

btw - here are some Bryer's commercials from when I was a kid where they deride competing ice cream brands for including gums in their recipes. How the worm has turned!


Let them know that it is I, Aziz Hamid!

I'm not too much of an ice cream guy -- I'll maybe two or three of those smaller-sized Haagen-Dazs or Ben & Jerry per year tops. However, earlier this year, I bought two of those Nestle "frozen desserts", one Rolo and one Smarties, at a buck each, so what do I have to lose? Not only it did not taste like ice cream at all (it's not ice cream in the first place), but I was surprised of how much little would remain if I would take a full scoop and let it melt in the mouth -- nothing but fluff & air in those pints.

That's low-quality "ice cream" for you, I guess.

Didn't watch the videos, but unopened bags of chips have nitrogen in them 'cuz oxygen causes oxidation.

Chapman's makes a cookies-and-cream REAL ice cream. It's pretty darn good.
