  1. Are you talking about the Breyers brand? How do they make it so good? Is it all that air they churn into it? I don't buy it often 'cuz between us (husband and self) we could eat it all in one sitting.
    My next fav is mint choco chip. I remember as a kid saving all the chips for last and then eating them in one bite.

    1. lol! thats the best way to do it! I like to save the big chunks of caramel and mmmmm! You know what else is great.... dulce de leche cheesecake @ ckfactory. OMG>

      1. I think it's gross.

        To each his own.

        1. mmm, i "got enough" of hagen-daaz's dulce de leche after checking the nutrition label...............

            Nutrition...please don't go there! Someone on this board recommended the LaLoo's Goat Milk Black Fig Ice Cream. Now, I'm thinking...that will be a nice low-fat and low-cal treat. It is really grassy tasting and delicious, but then I looked at the calorie count: 150cal for 1/2 cup...yikes! How DO they squeeze so many calories into such a small space???????

            1. re: liu

              Calorie counts are simple multiples of grams of fat, grams of protein, and grams of carb (each has its own multiple). Low sugar ice cream may have more calories per gram than high-sugar, because the grams of sugar are replaced by fat grams.

              Also, I think I remember reading that Goat's milk has more fat and less water per gram than Cow's, but I might be mistaken

              You can try the dulce de leche frozen yogurt. It's pretty good, though far inferior to the ice cream. But they also have a "light" version of the dulce de leche ice cream, and it tastes pretty much the same as the full-fat version:

                Really? I didn't find the light version as satisfying....oh well, I burned myself out on both. Wonderful but I tend to do the thing I love so often for a period of time that I can't look at it for a while.
