We like politics but we LOVE ice cream.
Which is why we are so peeved at one of our favorite brands BREYER’s which, damn them, have been scamming us. They have long been justly known as a purveyor of fine ICE CREAM. Now they are selling what they call “frozen dairy dessert” and, guess what, it ain’t ice cream!
Under the law, anyone selling ice cream must include 10% milk fat (cream) in the product. Well the crooks at Breyers figured out that with their good name and some fancy marketing they could con us into buying crap that wasn’t real ice cream and we would be none the wiser. Instead of milk fat (cream) Breyers has been swirling up corn syrup and vegetable gums and selling it as if it were ice cream.
It’s not, it’s crap.
As one of our sister sites on wordpress explains it, Breyer’s has chosen to go over to the dark side of the marketplace, take a look at “My Sister’s Pantry” on WordPress:
- In this post she explains how she first found out about the fake ice cream — http://mysisterspantry.wordpress.com/2012/03/22/frozen-dairy-dessert-really-breyers-24/
- And then she sent them a letter griping and this is the reply she got — http://mysisterspantry.wordpress.com/2012/07/22/breyers-frozen-dairy-dessert-reply/
You go girls!
