They achieve this with vegetable gums

Normally over $6 a pint Fairway recently had it on for sale for $3.99

_________________

Guar gum (also sometimes called gellan gum) is a common powdered product used to stabilize, emulsify and thicken the texture of certain foods and industrial products ó such as bottled coconut or almond milk, yogurts, soups, fiber supplements, and body lotions. There are numerous uses for guar gum spanning several industries, and today itís estimated that food-industry applications account for the vast majority (more than 70 percent) of the worldís supply of guar gum.

Considered to be a type of galactomannan, guar gum is produced in a similar manner to other natural seed gums that are created by milling the endosperm (seeds) of legumes or grains. While guar gum doesnít necessarily provide many essential nutrients, itís low in calories and high in fiber, which may help you feel fuller after eating. On the other hand, like other emulsifiers added to many processed foods, consuming guar gum may come with potential drawbacks, such as causing digestive issues and even triggering leaky gut reactions. Itís certainly not something youíd choose to purposefully consume a lot of, but in moderation it seems to be a better choice than other options.

There's also a supermarket brand of regular ice cream at Gristedes. Only a few traditional flavors available
La Salle is the name and $3.99 is printed on the label
They have been around a long time, the quality is fairly good, not Baskin Robbins crap
lol@Baskin Robbins... God I haven't had that "crap" since I was a teenager... Another brand that has really fallen off the truck is Breyers. I feel like growing up, they were a good brand and in fact as a kid I enjoyed their ice cream. I haven't had their stuff in years. Now I don't know what they're putting out, but I'm not sure if it's even actual ice cream. Some sort of "frozen dessert"...

OMG... I had to look that one up! LMAO I DO remember those ice creams though. Looking back on it, I think it was the sugar high I was after. Now though, I don't think I'd touch that. Probably loaded with God knows what. That toasted almond though, boy was it good. Damn ice cream companies changing their recipes and ruining our childhood memories. lol

I'm not fussy.
I'd eat Carvel, Breyers, Good Humor, Klondike, Baskins, Friendly's, even no brand/store brand ice cream by the spoonful as if my life depended on it.
Ice cream is ice cream. It's all yummy to me. And that's why I avoid them like the plague.
