The only threads I've found on this topic were pretty old, so I'm starting a new one. This is for Mr Rat, who is using it to make alcoholic milkshakes and has decided that Ben and Jerry's vanilla is terrible. He thinks it just tastes "gummy" with sweeteners. Any suggestions? We are in NYC. Oh, and while we are enthusiastic home cooks we're not going to be making ice cream, so I'm just asking about commercially available brands. Thanks in advance.
