Once a month the local senior center collectively celebrates everyone’s birthday that falls in that month. When the center lost their birthday ice cream donor, we volunteered to fill that role. So once a month we trek off to Aldi to buy 4 of these (assorted flavors) for the senior center. At a total cost around $10, it’s no big deal.

The birthday celebration takes place during the senior lunch at the center.  Since I’m never present for the senior lunch, one day it occurred to me that I’ve never actually had any of this ice cream. To rectify that obvious problem, here’s a review.

No one would ever confuse this ice cream with something like Ben & Jerry’s, but it’s still pretty good on its own. While the first ingredient on the label is cream, it’s not the creamiest ice cream I’ve ever had.  But it’s still creamy enough to make the mouth feel good. The sweetness is just about right, neither too sweet, nor not sweet enough. The flavor is spot on for butter pecan. The pecans are to go nuts for. Plentiful and big, if the pecans were removed from the ice cream, and sold alone as a bag of nuts, you’d come close to paying the same price.

But the real problem was the lack of quality. This is good.  The major supermarket brand was not.

So whether you’d like to celebrate birthdays with the local seniors or just celebrate yours at home, give this a try at a truly remarkable price.

    Serving size is one-half cup. I don’t anyone (excluding those on a restricted diet) who eats ice cream and limits their serving to one-half cup. But then, like me, most of my friends are hearty eaters.

      Yeah, many of the serving sizes on most food seems to be unrealistic. There must be some labeling requirement to standardize a serving size for comparison between brands.

        I think I saw or heard something a few months ago about an attempt to make serving sizes more realistic. The cynic in me says it will be years, if ever, til this happens. All the various food councils will fight tooth and nail to block it from happening.

        I’m with you, especially with something like this where it’s up to the person to decide what the serving size is. A slice of bread is easy. This, forget about it.
