I'm a definite middle-of-the-road ice-cream guy. You can get delicious, quality ice cream without paying the huge price of Haagen-Daas or Ben & Jerry's.

Also, I disagree with Ben & Jerry's politics, so I won't buy their ice-cream anyway.

My current favorite ice cream is the Blue Bunny Red Carpet Red Velvet Cake ice cream. I love red velvet cake, and this ice cream is simply delicious.

Cool pics, Mir.

It's funny by the way how much cultural difference there is. You guys talk about the best icecream and can name like a huge number of brands and stuff whereas here we just either go eat icecream or not. I have never considered that there could be a difference in quality of icecream.

edit: recently though supermarkets have started carrying a Ben & Jerries brand of icecream which comes in huge buckets and is crazy expensive. I'm sure it's imported from you guys.


You should go to Italy. Seriously, I have had the most ridiculous but wonderful flavours over there, for a crazy low price.


Ah well, i´m not really a fan of icecream or other forms of candy. It´s usually too sweet for my taste. I don´t dislike sweets but it often makes my stomach ache an hour after consumption. I will eat it at a restaurant or something as desert in small portions but I never go out and it eat it as an inbetween. I do like frozen yoghurt but don´t actually eat that a lot either.


I agree. I'm not really a "sweets" eater, or a chocolate lover. However, I do love good, quality hard candy, especially cherry flavored, but it's impossible to find in the US.

There's a lot of varying degree in food quality in the US unfortunately. It's not because there's something amazing - moreso there's some things that are just hack jobs. Care to talk bread?

Also, the Italian gelato is awesome and it was pretty affordable. Definite thumbs up.

Anything that's on sale, wheat, and not laughable wheat.

But any European will tell you that the US bread is a joke.

They're openly and vocally liberal. Quite liberal. And they're huge contributors to the liberal cause.

That's my stance, make ice cream I want to buy. So why do they go out of their way to be overtly political?

Who cares?

When I consider buying something, the political persuasions of the seller just doesn't enter into the equation. Why artificially limit the size of the market pool and constrain my options? B&J could be run by card-carrying Communists for all I care, and I'd still buy their ice cream if I best met my needs.

That's a fine philosophy for you, but you can't dictate how others utilize their spending dollars. I refuse to patronize Wal-Mart for the inverse of Jage's reasoning. Am I also worthy of your contempt?

Moved my response to the other thread. While we're here, here's me'n the boy at the farmer's market this week. We were able to fill growlers there, and sold out of everything we brought (two 1/2 bbl kegs and one 1/6th bbl) in four hours.

Who's dictating? I'm justifying my position, nothing more.

It's funny cause it's true. Sadly I have to confess that in some countries (France, I am looking at you), the quality of bread is rapidly going downhill.

Good bread should go stale after one day. If it lasts for weeks, it's definitely not good bread.

And a cup of sugar in every bun! We have some decent white breads, but they are not mass-produced and our sliced enriched (because we destroyed the original ingredients' nutrition by over-processing) white bread is more a ball of bleached gluten and sugar than anything else. The bread's crust should be at least two microns thick.

Their main factory is in Waterbury, VT. That's actually where I work, and it's about 30 minutes from my house.

When I was a kid I hated breads other than white bread that you'd get at the supermarket. Nowadays I marvel at that and prefer whole grain breads and think "White bread has no flavor or texture whatsoever, how is it I liked that stuff so much?"

White bread in the US is generally so over-processed that almost the entire useful nutritional value is leeched out of it during processing, to the point that to make it even of marginal nutritional value, they have to mix in goop to add it back in. Ugh.

(It actually stuns me how much is done to food in the US that is not even legal in most other Western countries - or more, how much is done to food that there is no need to actually tell people is being done - in many cases, simply a requirement that consumers be informed as to what is being done to the food they eat would be enough to stop many practices)

But this isn't a food thread so I apologize for the threadjack. Maybe I'll find a picture of bread or something.

One explanation that I have heard, is that when you were young your taste buds were far more developed (not experienced) than when you are older, which is why older people look for stronger flavours so that they can actually taste things, while the very young sense a lot of flavour in what we consider bland.

Facebook suggests he withdrew for personal reasons, but I don't really want to dig deeper than that.
