    Häagen Dazs Choc Choc Chip ... sooooo good.

    But at least 5 months since I ate it the last time. Trying to loose some weight. Yes, I'm looking at you Sho'nuff, stay away from the dark side of the food pyramid.

    where is this located?[​IMG]

    the actual parlour is in Alhambra, but a few places in South Pasadena use their ice cream like The Fair Oaks Pharmacy (if you like ice cream and havent been here you are seriously missing out) and Gus' BBQ across the street on Fair Oaks.

    In the realm of ice cream...doesn't "premium" have something to do with the fat content?

    Yep.

    what is overrun?

    Measure of the amount air contained in the ice cream, as opposed to the ice cream mix. So, low overrun = higher density.

    oh i see. but i thought the air content was what gave it its special texture of fluffiness. so i considered more fluff/air content, then it was better.

    like for instance, when you take an ice cream carton out of the freezer and leave it out for awhile to melt down, thus losing its air content/overrun, then you place it back in the freezer for refreezing. the texture is basically lost. it is just solid brick of melted then refrozen milk and cream.

    (this happens alot in grocery stores; people taking an ice cream out, changing their minds, but not replacing it leaving it out, later the store personnel puts it back in the freezer)

    Why is there no cinnamon ice cream? Seems like a natural.

    You probably can't get hold of it in the US, but Salcombe dairy Honeycomb is truly awesome.
