The Breyers in the flyer is not real ice cream it is frozen dairy desert. Breyers changed the ingredients and legally they can no longer call their product ice cream.

I thought so too but looks like it's changed back. Picture shows "real ice cream" instead of the usual "frozen dairy dessert". Might have to give them a try again after swearing off of Breyers.

If I recall correctly, the Breyer's black packaging is real ice cream. The blue boxes are "frozen dessert".

Wrong - the picture in the flyer is literally labelled ice cream. Both the ice cream and frozen desert are on sale.

Breyer's Creamery Style is real ice cream (there are black tubs that are not real ice cream in their line up). It's been my budget ice cream and I have been purchasing for years (Natural Vanilla). Small ingredient list, with additives mostly being binding agents found in a LOT of other foods. My more expensive one would be Hagan Dazs (also Vanilla) as it has the leanest ingredient list. Kawartha is highly overrated imho, and Halo Top is not real ice cream. This is a good deal. I had grabbed a couple tubs yesterday after work.

Cheers!

Agreed, just bought a tub added some pecans tastes great. Almost made the mistake of getting french vanilla.

Where do you see that? If you bother to look on the package it clearly states REAL ICE CREAM in the bottom right corner. Enough of this song and dance.

I think the misconception with this AND Kawartha too is on this too. Its the modified milk ingredients and locust bean gum that throws me off..I stay away from all soft serve too because of that. PC Cream first though mentions Cream the second ingredient is most always modified milk ingredients.

FWIW even if this can technically be called ice cream, it isn't quite smooth and breaks apart when you try to ball it. To me that's a dead giveaway something funky is going on.
Tastes okay but texturally is not quite what you'd expect.

I have been buying Metro’s house brand Irresistibles Ice Cream. I also buy Kawaratha Dairy and between the two, I find the Metro one to be a lot better.

@Neo_ZX

Try the Metro ice cream. It is on sale till September for 3.99$ for 1.5L and it balls up easily, Soft and smooth.

No Frills comes to approximately $0.46 per bottle versus Costco at approximately $0.50 per bottle.

No Frills' price is definitely better though given the lineups everywhere, Costco is certainly a viable option if you happen to be there and factor in your time.

Its the thickening agents thats why but back on topic but those looking for a budget frozen dessert this is a good deal. I use to eat PC Cream First and remember when it was on sale for $3.99

Don't ever recall my ice cream not "ball'ing" and fallin off my cone, I also find ice cream of almost any grade to be "quite smooth" [only time it isn't is when it melted a bit on the way home and then got re-freeze ice crystalled].

Do you want the $2.99 ice cream or not? Or would you rather buy a $$$ for a commercial ice cream churner and make your own? BTW 500 ml of whipping cream goes for almost this $2.99 price (2 for $5 at SDM if on sale).

Why do threads go offline all the time? ==>> ....this is not "cream", this has XYZ in it etc etc etc. It's OK to pay a lot less without knowing how companies "deceive" us by whipping more air or using enhancers. If this were high end artisinal ice cream, then we can get into the "weeds".

I just quickly mentioned it because that's my opinion of this specific product that I happened to buy recently (not on sale). It's not a pleasing texture but still tastes okay. I don't mind some fillers if the price is right and you don't break a cone trying to pack the ice cream into it. That said, I wouldn't buy this again even on sale.

For me, the test is pulling the ice cream out of the freezer and using the ice cream scope. The Metro one goes in easily and it is soft and stays together. It doesn’t break the sugar cone (which is also on sale at Metro for 1.49$ for 12 cones). Kawaratha Ice Cream takes a minute to soften. Coming out of the freezer, it is quite stiff.
