Wow...that is sneaky! I have no problems with a company reformulating their recipes but the packaging was deliberately done so you would not notice the difference. I used to like Breyers and one of their selling points was that it was all natural.

Eat Blue Bell it's better anyway! I despise deceptive advertising. Including super fine print or rewording to deceive customers.

Thanks to OP for sharing this link
While I don't buy Breyer's, I am the sort of person who notices when a product is changed, and usually in a way that I dislike (cruddier ingredients, smaller size pkge. for larger price), so I appreciate a like-minded blog.

Have long been annoyed at how dairy items (incl. ice cream & yogurt) keep having the dairy replaced by cheap substitutes, such as corn syrup & gelatin (which strike me as much less "food-like" than traditional & time-tested ingredients, i.e. sugar/lactose and butterfat/cream). It's like "diet" foods are taking over the shelves, and I want to opt out (I don't enjoy these product modifications), but the "non-diet" versions seem to get discontinued...just my opinion/perspective.

I noticed this at Winn Dixie a few weeks ago. Breyers was on sale 3 for $9. The only flavors that were still labeled as being ice cream were vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry. Everything else was "frozen dairy dessert" including peach...

I have yet to see Blue Bell, or any other brand, sell lactose free ice cream. We don't buy much ice cream but I will be checking out other brands.
