    Here is what is in Rita's frozen vanilla custard:

    Vanilla Custard: Milk, Cream, Liquid Sucrose, Corn Syrup, Condensed Skim, Whey
    Powder, Liquid Egg Yolks, Natural and Artificial Flavor, Mono and Diglycerides,
    Cellulose Gum, Tetrasodium Pyrophosphate, Guar Gum, Polysorbate 60, Polysorbate 65,
    Carrageenan, Salt.

    Less bad.

      I wish these people would use gelatin instead of the gums. So annoying... Then again the vegetarians surviving on pasta and ice cream would complain.

          Yeah, this. I don't have DQ often but... yeah. I like their new commercials because it IS fan food. XD

            I don't get the urge to eat fast food anymore... Although in-n-out's protein-style (bunless) burgers are now a favorite (ie I get it at most 2-3x in a year...no in-n-out in NYC). 5x5 (5 beef pattiesx5 cheese) ftw. New awesome meaning for 5x5...

            Other than that...no fast food for moi.

            I am picky with my food...if it doesn't taste amazing why would I pay more (than making it at home) for it? I can't afford it both calorically or monetarily.

              Absolutely not. Real frozen custard is much more "real food" than ice cream. All you need to be ice cream is a 10% butterfat content and 100% or less overrun. Most store-bought ice cream is at the minimum 10% butterfat levels (skim milk is often the first ingredient), multiple gums are used to compensate and overrun approaches 100%, meaning air is 50% of the volume inside the container.

              Custards tend to contain much more butterfat, in the 18-20% range, contain egg yolks in significant quantity and have much less air and is thicker. Real soft-serve custard contains much more cream and eggs. It is held at a lower temperature: in the ~32 degree range instead of flash-frozen and kept well-below freezing like ice cream, so that's why it's "soft" instead of hard.
              Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.

                Costco has thier own kirkland brand ice-cream that is pretty good. First ingredient is cream and they use vanilla extract. High fat content and very tasty.

                Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

                  This guy is spot on.

                    I love NorCal. There are really high end ice cream shops around that use local Straus Milk. They cost an arm and a leg, but taste so delicious...Bi Rite!

                      As I said I live in a small town and if im out with my niece and she wants a quick ice cream and im near any standard fast food place and I want to partake in some scream too which would be the best.

                      I guess I'd go with DQ or Culvers.

                        none of the fast food ice creams taste good to me...

                        I will sometimes buy a quart of Trader Joe's mint chip ice cream, which lasts me a few months when I'm not pregnant and DP isn't eating it... it goes a little faster when I'm pregnant and/or my sweetie is out of (his preferred) coffee ice cream

                        Mint Chip:
                        cream, milk, sugar, fudge chips (sugar, coconut oil, cocoa processed with alkali, cocoa, butter oil, soy lecithin, vanilla), egg yolks, carob bean gum, guar gum, natural peppermint extract.

                        Coffee Bean Blast:
                        Cream, Milk, Sugar, Egg Yolks, Coffee, Espresso Beans, Cocoa (Processed with Alkali), Coffee Extract, Carob Bean Gum, Guar Gum.

                          I avoid the gums in TJ's. I prefer Haagen Dazs...then again I only eat ice cream once or twice a month or so these days. I don't bother because the banana soft serve (ingredients: banana, gelatin, maybe cacao or cacao nibs, vanilla whey) and homemade mango sorbet (ingredients: just frozen mangoes) is so good.

                            Costco premium ice cream is made from basic natural ingredients and was rated in the "excellent" category in Consumer Reports magazine.

                              Yeah, I'm not huge on the gums, but for as often as I eat ice cream, I'm not that concerned ;-)
