What the hell, so much "ice cream" really isn't, when you read the fine print.

It's false advertising I tell you.

We need to start a class action lawsuit to redress this issue, and to drive this scourge on humanity from the grocery store shelves.

I rarely eat ice cream, but when I do, I want the hard stuff, with full on cream and sugar, not some fake, reduced calorie, fake tasting substitute.

There should be a law against this fraud!

Same issue with popsicles. Used to be made with real sugar, and real and artificial flavorings. Now, seems like virtually all the products are using fake sugar substitutes.

Comedian said, 'I ordered a bowl of sugar-free, low fat, frozen yogurt. Basically, I bought a bowl of cold.'

Read the labels!

If it says 'frozen confection', it's not ice cream!

Do they still make 'ice milk'? Yuck.

I don't know, but do remember "ice milk".

It was horrible too.

Low-fat ice cream is just very bland, and tasteless. Rather like mixing cardboard with good ice cream, at a 50/50 ratio.

Actually ice milk wasn't that bad.

Lite ice cream on the other hand…

Product manufacturers should be required to list "air" as an ingredient and in what percentage of volume. I am pretty sure it has no nutritional value….

Similar to that Seinfeld episode about the non-fat yogurt.

I have diabetes. The only way I get to eat Ice Cream is the low sugar stuff. Otherwise off limits.
