MHB is right again. B&J's is the king of conventional up mkt store bought ice cream. However, i do think there is nothing quite as good as a proper italian Gelato. Last time i was in Venice we got to the point where we would have as many as three in a day. And speaking of such things, anybody ever had Cadburry Ice Cream? All air and no sugar. Absolutle disgusting. Makes you wonder how they manage to sell any.

WHAM, ever had this:

You're out on a rig in the middle of nowhere.

You've just finished your shift, it's sundown....

..you look into the horizon and in your hands a tub of icecream.

Perfect KODAK moment made even better..

with the perfect B&J moment.

but the actual joy of eating something cold and creamy and not having to chew just completely disappears when you've got lumps and bumps even if they are 'quality' ingredients. i love brownies and i love belgian chocolate but on their own. you can keep your oatmeal though!

Much as I hate to say this.....Cadbury's....yes, I do believe they've gone downhill a bit.

But be fair, the Cadbury's you get in other countries is not the same as the stuff you get at home, I guess they must irradiate it, or add different ingredients to account for its new home in warmer climes?

Agree about Black and Green's, that is so yummy. Especially the dark, 70% cocoa, organic bar. It's so chocolaty that you end up eating less of it....well, some do, other chocoholics can end up eating all a bar and feel decidedly sick....and serve me right.

Cadbury's like other companies have to abide by the law of the country they are exporting to or producing in which sometimes means changing ingredients.

Do you think that would mean it would taste different in Sing to the Middle East cos I've just got back from there and I swear it tastes different in different countries. Or is there a sort of 'blanket' recipe for all countries with warmer temperatures than ours in the UK?....not difficult that is it?

No, I guess you mean each country has different recipes.....buy why? And what are they? And how do they decide? Is it really all government stuff, or is it gauged by the taste buds of the nation? Do they have panels of choc tasters........??

And if so, where are they and can I join?

B&Js have many smooth flavors for people who prefer it that way: vanilla, chocolate, coffee coffee buzz buzz, white russian, etc...

Definitely Bubbles, had similar conversation with As Annoying as Quasimodo.
Once again here's that url in case you missed it in my last post.

Scroll to the bottom of the page - don't know about chocolate tasters though - just remember the word diet.
