for those in Quebec, i succesfully price matched the 2$ offer at Maxi with all of their flavors through Walmart Online Order with the code Quebec60/montreal60 for 20$ off the order. Comes out to about 1.80$ per 1.66L

Ew. Breyers? At least it's the black box, but it's still awful ice cream.

Nope. That's why I'm on the internet arguing with strangers. If I had anything better to do I'd probably be doing it.

Does it really make a difference in a milkshake? How much do you weigh that you have assessed the quality of all leading brands of icecream? What brand do you suggest big guy?

Agreed, even their real ice cream tastes like crap now with all the gums and additives they've ruined it with.

I don't eat ice cream a lot, but I've tried Haagen Daz (or however you spell that fake European name), Ben & Jerry, Movenpick, Kawartha (the big tubes that Costco sells) and Breyers "Creamery style". The Breyers were absolutely the worst... Their vanilla ice cream has no flavor except sweetness, and the texture is bad.

I can understand if they don't compare to the premium ice cream brands, but even Kawartha was miles better and it's cheaper too! And yes, it's very noticeable even in a milkshake or an affogato.

Wow ...

So anyways, to answer your question, Real Dairy is a good line ...
I also do not usually buy Breyers because of the taste.

Definitely an ice cream connoisseur over here lol

Breyer's is awful.

They changed their formula years ago and if you leave a bowl out overnight, it doesn't melt (a weird clear goo emerges from the bottom).

Even if that doesn't bother people, the taste is still pretty off.

Kawartha is a significant upgrade over this crap.

Ben & Jerry doesn't really count since they only have their own flavors, and none of the staples like Vanilla or plain ol chocolate (I guess chocolate therapy counts but I have trouble finding it). I think I prefer Haagen Daz slightly over Movenpick but wouldn't mind either. Trying to go a bit more healthy these days though so in terms of which I buy the most, it's probably Kawartha.

Probably not. But I'm not buying ice cream to make milkshakes. I'm buying ice cream to have ice cream.
To be honest... if it was a milkshake (especially a flavored milkshake) I'd buy the commercial 15L tubs.
How much do you weigh that you have assessed the quality of all leading brands of icecream?
The leading brands makes it easy. Well nationally available brands anyways.... Regional brands are a little more difficult.
Obviously the extremely local brands I haven't tried unless you happen to be in BC/Alberta which in case I may have.
But the big ones like Breyer's/HD/B&J/Chapmans/Large store house brands like PC/Foremost (AB)/and a few others I'm probably missing off hand I have tried.
If you name a large brand, I've probably tried it.
What brand do you suggest big guy?
This is gonna be a generalized statement, but extreme local. This might be hit or miss too

Let's go down the nationally available list:
Breyers Blue: No cream so they legally can't call it ice cream. It's the absolute most garbage thing in the freezer section. Seriously. Go read the ingredient list. But it's cheap. And it's cheap for a reason. There's nothing in it that's food.
Breyers Black (aka this): It at least has cream. But it's the absolute minimum amount of cream in there to be legally called ice cream. It's still awful. But again cheap. And cheap for a reason still.
HD: Most people love HD. While it does have a pure ingredient list (generally cream milk eggs sugar plus whatever flavorings) to me it tastes.... flat. Like it's missing richness. Not really satisfying to me. Especially considering the price, I'm not a fan.
B&J: A little wacky in terms of flavor to make a real judgement. I feel like you're eating the toppings more than focusing on ice cream.
Chapmans: I swear their budget line has so much overrun that if you somehow managed to replace the air with helium it'd float away.
PC: Just no. "Chocolatey chips"? Not surprising since most PC products suck.

So what do I recommend? Making your own. Obviously this is a fairly large task with specialized equipment needed, but it'll absolutely destroy ice cream in retail form for you.
Everything else is just gonna suck.
Just as a benchmark, it costs me about $5/L to make ice cream. By default, anything costing less means they're cutting corners on ingredients. HD is about the closest thing when on sale but as I said above, it's still not very good.

Now... how about buying?
The trick is finding a local joint that actually makes their base. Quite a few places just buy a premix bag and churn it which isn't really any better.

It's not going to be cheap though. It's a small (large) price to pay for ice cream that's actually good.

Speaking of not cheap, if you go with the premium dairy route, it's close to $10/L.
But you're getting the absolute best ice cream you'll ever eat. Nationally available cream has stabilizers in it.
Someone like Avalon Dairy doesn't, but cream instead of being $3/L is like $8/L.

Once you have an ice cream that's unbridled by food cost, it'll change your life forever.
And now that it's strawberry season I think I might go buy some local berries and make some strawberry ice cream.

Nope. That's why I'm on the internet arguing with strangers. If I had anything better to do I'd probably be doing it.

Oh they got tricky! They used to list ingredients on their website.

Also their FAQ is hilarious.
https://www.breyers.com/ca/en/faq.html

8) What is a Frozen Dairy Dessert?
Frozen Dairy Dessert products are made with many of the same high-quality ingredients that are commonly found in Ice Cream – like fresh milk, cream and sugar – and offer a great taste and even smoother texture. According to Canadian regulations, in order for a product to be labeled ice cream, it needs to meet the standard which includes being;

• Not less than 10% dairy fat
• A minimum of 36% solids by weight

Anything that does not meet both of those requirements is not considered ice cream.


Since those jerks don't have ingredients any more (probably because they're horrifying) I had to dig through my old posts to find this:

INGREDIENTS: MODIFIED MILK INGREDIENTS, SUGAR, WATER, GLUCOSE, COCONUT OIL, NATURAL VANILLA FLAVOUR, MONO AND DIGLYCERIDES, VEGETABLE GUMS (GUAR, CAROB BEAN), CARRAGEENAN, NATURAL COLOUR.

So that FAQ is already bullshit because the only thing in common with real ice cream is sugar. There's not even milk in Frozen Dessert.
To be fair, OP's deal is legally ice cream so it has to have at least cream. But you bet your bottom dollar that it has the absolute minimum amount of cream that's legally required. The rest is still gums and stabilizers and other filler that's nice and cheap.

You might have me convinced. What equipment do you use to make ice cream?

Price isn't an issue, I would rather eat less ice cream and have it be better quality. It's healthier that way anyways, and makes it taste even better when I do make it.
