ben and jerry's ice cream is dropping "all natural ingredients" from their label because it ain't true. damn, true believers have another bear to cross.

@dyslexia,
I prefer Haagen Daaz. Ever since Ben and Jerry's has been bought up by the conglomerate Unilever their ice cream has become truly inconsistent quality wise.

Still, the scandal is a true ice cream tragedy! Sad

@tsarstepan,
I know... but I still buy it. Not that I buy much of it (maybe a pint a year).

It is still corporate Ice Cream

Häagen-Dazs was bought by Pillsbury in 1983. General Mills bought Pillsbury in 2001.[9][10] However, in the United States and Canada, Häagen-Dazs products are produced by Nestlé subsidiary Dreyer's, which acquired the rights as part of the General Mills-Pillsbury deal.[11][12] The brand name is still owned by General Mills but is licensed to Nestlé in the US and Canada.

Just like mini-breweries where you can only buy a limited amount of usually excellent beer brewed right on the premises, the latest trend is for non-brand-name home-made ice cream stores. Ice cream churned out right there on the spot somehow always tastes better than Edy's or Haagen Dazs.

There's a small restaurant right around the corner from where I live -- Aloha Luigi's -- that churns its own ice cream. No more expensive than the commercial stuff in other restaurants but waaay better. For exmple, Luigi uses locally-grown Kona coffee beans in preparing his version of Coffee ice cream. Outta sight! And Luigi himself is an island treasure. A transplanted Noo-Yawker, half Italian, half Jewish, he's also a fine chef. We've become friends.

@hawkeye10,
I know Haagen Daaz is a corporate owned business (that wasn't my complaint) but quality wise, it's still far more consistent then Ben and Jerry's.
