Reminder: ‘Frozen Dairy Dessert’ Isn’t the Same as ‘Ice Cream’
When you're out shopping for treats this summer there's something that many don't even notice but with a keen eye you can spot it from a mile away. Just gotta open your eyes.
Sometimes you'll see this on your box of treats. Frozen Dairy. Well, that's ice cream, isn't it? Well, not exactly.
It looks like ice cream, it tastes like ice cream, it feels like ice cream, why is it not ice cream?
The simplified answer is that ice cream is made from real milk or cream while anything that's labeled as a frozen dairy dessert is mostly oils like saturated oils and anything else as a substitute for ice cream. I'm sure it's worse for you, too, in the long run.
In fact, you'll find many of your favorite 'ice cream bars' in your freezer section aren't even ice cream bars. But Frozen Dairy Dessert Bars doesn't have the same ring to it.
It's the same with any seaonal holiday, you'll find easter bunnies and wrapped Santas that says Chocolate flavored. Well, if it's chocolate flavored, what is it, really? It's not enough quailty ingredients to be considered actual chocolate. The difference between frozen dairy dessert and ice cream are along those lines.
You will see that many of your favorites say ice cream. You'll also probably notice those are more expensive. Not the cost difference between butter and margarine but still. The ultimate choice is still yours but I don't want you to be fooled if you think something is ice cream and think it's okay for you because milk does the body good or anything.
