Germany: Quality Storebought Ice Cream?

kmschro | Apr 24, 2011 03:48 PM

I'm an American currently living in Bayern, and am looking for a good ice cream brand or two. The street stands are quite good, but I can't find anything at Aldi, Netto or Lidl worth eating. There's a Real fairly close by, but the Häagen Dazs is 5EUR per pint there (twice what it costs in the States). There is also a Rewe in the neighborhood, and I haven't checked their selection.

So I suppose my question has two parts:

What are brands of quality (natural flavors, real cream, no glucose syrup) ice cream?
How much should I expect to pay? Are the Real Häagen Dazs prices average for that quality, or could I find something for 5EUR per liter?

Thanks for any insight.
