Today, I have two dairy ice creams. Ths first is Stonyfield Farm Organic ice cream. They didn’t have mint or vanilla, so I’ve got Creme Caramel.
If you remember from the yogurt reviews, I wasn’t crazy about the yogurt, but I still wanted to give their ice cream a try. It’s $3.99 a pint, which is pretty reasonable for a dairy ice cream. It has 260 calories per serving, 130 from fat, though, so it is a bit more calorie-heavy than most non-dairy ice creams. It also has a lot more sugar– 28 grams per serving. It’s sweetened with organic, naturally milled sugar.
It looks pretty nondescript on opening, and doesn’t smell like much. You can’t even really see the caramel.
But YUM! This ice cream is delicious. It tastes like it’s made with good, fresh milk, and although it’s a bit sweet, the texture is really creamy. It has a thick caramel swirl.
The only problem I have with this ice cream is that it melts very quickly– the same way homemade ice cream does, which is a plus, but I ate way more than I was intending to because I didn’t want to put melty ice cream in the freezer and have it re-freeze! But I would highly recommend this one!
My second ice cream is Green & Black vanilla. I can’t find the receipt for this one but I believe it cost a bit more than the Stonyfield, though. It’s another organic dairy ice cream.
It has significantly fewer calories per serving-190– and calories from fat– 100– than the Stonyfield. It also has less sugar– 17 grams per serving. The sugar is organic sugar and the ingredient list on this one is super short. The only things that are in here that you wouldn’t put into your homemade ice cream at home are guar gum and locust bean gum.
The inside of the container has a little star-shape on it, so the ice cream has a pretty indent when you open it. You can see the vanilla bean flecks all through this and the vanilla scent is really strong!
The ice cream is soft and has a really nice, smooth texture, but I think it’s a little too sweet and not heavy enough on the vanilla. It just doesn’t have a nice, solid flavor for eating alone. I think it would be really good with apple pie or something else that would mix with the flavor of it nicely, but on its own it just doesn’t have a lot of body, which it too bad because the texture is excellent.
