?Frozen Dessert Product? (moved from Ontario board)

I was dismayed when I went to my local grocery store and noticed that the Breyers ice cream I grew up with as a child was actually no longer considered 'ice cream'. Even more ridiculous was their product differentiation-- I noticed that only their 'double churn' and 'natural' lines were labeled as real 'ice cream'.
However, in America, all Breyers lines are still considered 'ice cream'. Why are we getting sold items that have diminished in quality over on our side?
I feel as though Canada is getting the short end of the stick in this situation.

  1. You never know, it could be the same product in Canada and in the US, but labeling laws may be more stringent the the base product in Canada can't be called "Ice Cream" whereas in the US it can based on some percentage of milk, cream, or whatever.
