IT'S NATIONAL ICE CREAM MONTH.
AND WHO DOESN'T LOVE ICE CREAM?
MICHELLE LI CERTAINLY DOES.
AND IS WITH US TODAY WITH A TASTE TEST OF SOME OF
MICHELLE --consumer reports
MORE THAN 90 PERCENT OF THE ICE CREAM WE EAT, WE SCOOP
OUT AT HOME.
SO CONSUMER REPORTS SET OUT TO FIND THE BEST-TASTING
ICE CREAM IN THE SUPERMARKET.
THEY FOCUSED ON AMERICA'S TOP-SELLING FLAVOR.
ONE HINT - IT'S NOT CHOCOLATE.
I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!
With or without the sprinkles and chocolate sauce,
America's favorite ice cream … is vanilla.
But what makes plain vanilla really great plain vanilla?
Consumer Reports tasters put the most popular vanilla
ice creams … to the test.
An excellent vanilla ice cream should have definite
dairy flavor, balanced by real vanilla.
And it shouldn't be overly sweet, and it should have
a creamy, smooth texture.
airy, gummy" texture, and the vanilla was just "basic.
rich, dense, and creamy,
full, dense, and creamy," with "big dairy flavor.
Well, it's not surprising that the top-rated ones
were really high in fat.
But there very good ones that we tested that have
about half the fat and are lower in price, as well.
Please, can I have some more ice cream?
CONSUMER REPORTS ALSO SAYS BE WARY OF FROZEN DESSERTS.
NOT THE SAME AS ICE CREAM.
SO I BROUGHT ONE ICE DESSERT AND ONE ICE CREAM.
SEE IF YOU CAN TASTE THE DIFFERENCE.
