Dr. Bob's Ice Cream - Quality Differences?

Briggs | May 30, 200504:18 AM

I know there are those here that tout its virtues, so I'm wondering if the Dr. Bob's Ice Cream purchased at the original store in Upland is different than what's sold at Gelson's or other retail locations.

I got the Scharffen Berger chocolate last year, and thought that while it tasted okay (I'm not a fan of deep chocolate ice cream), all the other artificial crap added a gummy aftertaste. I picked up the Tahitian Vanilla at Gelson's last night, and must say it was truly dreadful - both in taste and texture. Not creamy at all, and had a chemical taste I associate with really cheap ice creams.

Sorry, I'm not trying to be contentious, but I honestly can't see how anyone could think it compares favorably to Fosselman's, let alonge Haagan-Daz or even Breyer's - the last two which have no guar gum, diglycerides, corn syrup solids or carageenan.
