Hey there is justice in the world, those with diabetes can eat ice cream. Just discovered Breyers Triple Chocolate ice cream with NO sugar added. Try giving up chocolate for the rest of your life and see how that makes you feel. Well, I had to learn more about who makes this ice cream.
(From their website) Breyers Ice Cream informally began as a company in 1866 when William A. Breyer of Philadelphia made his first gallon of hand-cranked ice cream consisting of cream, pure cane sugar, fresh fruits, nuts and other natural flavors. Breyer opened his first retail ice cream shop in 1882. In 1896, 30 years after Breyer made his first gallon of ice cream, his family set up its first wholesale manufacturing plant. William Breyer’s son Henry W. Breyer, Sr. incorporated the business in 1908. He added the "Pledge of Purity" to every package of Breyers Ice Cream as his personal guarantee that Breyers was to use the highest quality, all natural ingredients available.
How many of you remember making ice cream in the good old days at home with a hand cranked ice cream churn, rock salt and blocks of ice using cream and fresh fruits such as peaches or strawberries? Some of my ancestors had the added duty of cutting blocks of ice from a frozen lake in the wintertime in order to make ice cream. Nothing was easy in those days. Tell us about your ice cream memories.
