Breyer's Ice Cream Has Tara Gum
But it used to not have any gum. All those years I was eating real non-gummed ice cream, and they had to go and change it. Breyers, you caved, you spineless corporate drones. If only a small independent dairy could have the guts to stand up to Big Gum and say no to bastardized ice cream and chocolate milk recipes.
I mean seriously, did your grandmother's ice cream recipe call for "gum" of any kind? I think not, and I rest my case. Oh, and for the texturally challenged palettes out there, here's a real ice cream recipe:
- vanilla extract
- chipped ice
- rock salt
