When is ice cream not ice cream? When it’s a “frozen dairy dessert.” Recently, Breyers made changes to some of their ice cream flavors. These changes were drastic enough that the products are still tasty, but can no longer legally be called “ice cream.”

They've probably been doing this kind of deception for years, they have probably had a recent issue with the FDA and now have been told to fess up on the ingredient labels.

Old news. I did buy some Vanilla and made sure it said Ice cream and it did. Otherwise I don't buy breyers anymore because frozen dairy dessert is not Ice cream IMO.

Consumers need to read the label. They should do it for anything. Breyers actual ice cream still contains better ingredients than many other ice creams sold.

I'm sure there are people who still think their Kraft "Singles" are cheese since it is cheese colored, made by Kraft and sold right next to actual cheese. Does that make Kraft evil?

No Wayyy. Breyers ice cream was one of the "legal" treats when I was growing up because it was all natural. I think they had some commercial listing their ingredients...and it was a big deal that they only used milk, cream, sugar and natural flavorings. The vanilla ice cream had real vanilla bean in it.

I loved their neapolitan (? the 3-flavor one) ice cream. I loved the chunks of strawberry.

Really sad to hear they had to change their recipe...But I guess if I cared, I would continue to buy them. I think most people who used to eat Breyers are like me. Natural isn't good enough anymore, and they probably eat organic dairy products. Too bad they couldn't go into the organic market instead of selling out.
