Breyers ice cream
Breyers ice cream
Breyers was once a well-regarded brand of ice cream, made with just a few natural ingredients.  But recent cost-cutting measures have resulted in more and more artificial ingredients, not only changing the flavor and texture significantly, but also reducing the percentage of milk and cream so much that it can't even legally be called "ice cream" anymore; now it's "frozen dairy dessert".

There used to be a Breyers factory in South Philadelphia.  And, yes, they were sold to a larger conglomerate many years ago.  They do make an "all natural" variety, but the cream content is much lower than it was.  That said, the same is true for Hagen Daaz anymore.  Only independents, like Ben and Jerrys or Yuenglings (yes, the beer maker) seem to have concern for higher cream content.

Well described, Duff.

Sadly, what used to be a premium ice cream brand is now garbage.
These days when I want to indulge an ice-cream craving my go-to choice is Häagen-Dazs vanilla. It is the only brand around whose ingredients list reads like Breyers vanilla used to.

"Reuben Mattus had a vision for changing the world of ice cream. At a time when others were cutting corners and pumping their ice cream with air, Mattus set out to do something better. Using only the finest ingredients, his rich, velvety ice cream created a category all its own. With three simple flavors -- Vanilla, Chocolate and Coffee - the Häagen-Dazs® brand was born." (1960)
