Haagan Daas is far superior but more expensive IMHO.

True as it only has milk, egg yolk and maybe a couple more ingredients.

Not trying to shit on the deal, but Kawartha's used to be my favourite store brand ice cream and it wasn't even close. But they really have changed their recipe and the taste and flavours aren't what they used to be.

Still better than Chapman's and stuff, but Haagen-Dazs and PC's "Cream First" label are better.

A delicate blend of 5 simple ingredients – milk, cream, eggs, sugar, and Japanese Matcha tea(or strawberries, chocolate, whatever).

$4.99 for 500mL of Haagen Dazs vs $4.99 for 1.5L for OP's. 3x the cost. Each of us could decide whether it's worth it.

Even Haagen Dazs is cheapening on some of its blends. Lots of artificial ingredients in the "specialty" blends.

Yep. Haagan Dazs when on sale is like $3.99 for 0.5L. This Kawartha on sale is $4.99 for 1.5L.

I love Haagan Dazs alot but I'm not buying it so the kids can load it on ice cream cones OR a pie. Kawartha for the price tastes good enough for those situations.

No offence taken. After buying Haagen Dasz for years and after they increased the price and changed the recipe, I bought an ice cream maker and am indeed making it at home. Bought macha from costco and the ice cream is amazing.

Yes, because the rest of the family eats Kawartha, Haagen Dazs etc .
Am I allowed to reply to this thread or, next time, I should ask for your permission?

I tried Kawartha’s ice cream a few years ago from one of their retail stores and was not impressed. I had high expectations because of the rave reviews. I’m typically a Haagen Dazs guy and prefer the more dense and hard texture of HD ice cream. I think Haagen Dazs is a superior product but you are also paying a lot more. To me it’s not worth spending any money on something I don’t enjoy so I just buy Haagen Dazs when it’s on sale for $3.99 or less.

For the machine I bought Cuisinart one:
https://www.amazon.ca/Cuisinart-ICE-70C ... 221&sr=8-6
I don't recall how much I paid, but definitely not $220 - it was 2 years ago, so I don't recall, maybe $140 or so.

The macha powder I buy at costco as well as half-and-half.

The good macha ice cream recipe:
https://www.justonecookbook.com/green-t ... ice-cream/

She also has black sesame (a bit too sweet for me) and red beans ice cream which I've tried.

Also, tried vanilla bean ice cream (bought vanilla beans at Loblaws or so). Not a fan of chocolate ice cream, so I didn't try. The machine comes with a recipe book for sorbets, ice creams and gelatos.

Tried this brand for the first time the other month and I was impressed. It is up there with Haagen Dazs imo at a lower price point.
