Carte D'Or for only £1.39 @ Sainsburys

£1.39 @ Sainsbury's
In Sainsburys they are selling Carte D'Or for less than half price at £1.39, it was originally £2.99. This is pretty cheap as they do all flavours.

Here's why:

Reconstituted Skimmed Milk, Sugar, Glucose-Fructose Syrup, Water, Vegetable Fat, Whey Solids, Dextrose, Emulsifier (E471), Stabilisers (Locust Bean Gum, Guar Gum, Carrageenan), Natural Madagascan Vanilla Extract, Vanilla Bean Pieces, Colours (Annatto, Curcumin), Flavouring

Proper ice cream doesn't contain vegetable fat or all this junk!

Good point. But at least it contains milk, whereas the cheaper products are just fat, air, and chemicals.

Any recommendation where to get better ice cream?

Odd - the Sainsbury's TV adverts are selling it at £1.49 here in the Midlands, and it is that price on this site too:

What's "proper" ice cream?

Perfectly legally described, most commercial ice cream has vegetable fat, from the cheap stuff to many of the more expensive brands, and historically always has!

'Proper' ice cream is dairy ice cream, which this stuff isn't, because it contains vegetable fat. I agree that calling it ice cream is perfectly legal in the UK, though in many other countries it couldn't be called that, again because of the vegetable fat.

Historically it hasn't always been this way - making ice cream out of vegetable fat (eg margarine) only started after the last world war because of the shortage of dairy products. People got used to it, but when you compare it with dairy ice cream, it's vastly inferior. Much cheaper to make, of course, so bigger profits for the manufacturers if people continue to buy it.

Calling this ice cream is a bit like calling Nescafe coffee.

It is 1.49 in store (half price from 2.99), at least around here. Still a good deal, but I wish I could find some affordable dairy ice cream.

Which it is, of course, so that seems reasonable enough. Jamaican Blue mountain beans, freshly roasted and ground it isn't, but they don't claim it is, any more than Walls claim Carte D'Or to be anything it isnt.

What you are confusing is food quality with food snobbery.

Both types of food product are perfectly good and legal, and contain nothing particularly artificial in origin, just they reside at different levels in the quality range within the marketplace. Now if they were full of dubious ingredients, I might agree with you, but they aren't! Even E471 is made from natural ingredients!
Incidentally, I prefer my ice cream with PLENTY of air - that's what makes it taste so light!

Just because something has an E number or a chemical name does not mean it is low quality, and I am well aware of how dodgy some E numbers can be, but this stuff isn't one of those products - perhaps £1 for a 2 litre tub ice-creams might be full of Tartrazine, but this type of product isn't.

It seems "top" chefs don't have such qualms... Boil- in-the bag advocates like Gordon Ramsey & Anthony Worrall Thompson don't, and clearly Gary Rhodes laps up white sugar and margarine all the way to the Bank without suggesting to us that it isn't anything other than it is. Never a day goes by without copious use of E numbers in ANY top kitchen - E260 is one I particularly can't abide, but most chefs love it!

I am puzzled to know why? In itself it isn't any guarantee of quality or taste.
Dairy products are something more and more people are trying to get OUT of their diet too!

Dairy ice cream is often very nice, but isn't always particularly good, and doesn't mean it won't have other less desirable products in it. Try Scottish produced "Mackies" as a comparison - it may well be a dairy ice cream, but tastes as exciting as a frozen bottle of semi skimmed milk :-(

My personal favourite commercial ice cream for true value is the Lidl Bourbon vanilla - 3L costs about 3 quid usually, sometimes less in offers, and beats most ice creams at twice the price. I am not such a great ice cream fan to be bothered to make it myself, but I think this remains the best way to get something different to commercial types without paying enormous sums per litre for a product that is actually surprisingly simple!
