Who doesn’t *LOVE* vanilla ice cream? Come on! No one? That’s what I thought. Vanilla Ice Cream goes well with everything dessert. You can pour any kind of syrup on it, it’ll be delicious, you can count on it. This is why I was particularly excited to find out that Costco’s Kirkland Signature Vanilla Ice Cream was on liquidation this week, along with all other ice creams, to make room for the winter stuff in the freezers. I bought a modest 4 half-gallons, or 1.65 liters each container, for the low-low price of $3.97 each. If you know your ice cream, you know that this is an exceptional price for an exceptional ice cream.
What I like about this Kirkland Signature Ice Cream is the ingredients list. Except for some stability agents, the list reads like something you would do yourself. Here goes, in decreasing order of content:
- Skim Milk
- Egg Yolk
- Vanilla Extract
- Carob Gum
- Guar Gum
This ice cream is certified Nut and Peanut-free, for allergies, and is made with 100% Canadian milk. There is a warning next to the ingredients list that specify that it may contain soy, which I suspect is there for legal reasons than for anything else.
This vanilla ice cream is delicious, simply put, and at only $3.97 per 1.65 liters, I could hardly say no. It is smooth and creamy, and will go well with any dessert, especially apple pies!
