This is why I make my own ice cream!

Today I learned that Haagen Daz, Breyers and Baskin-Robbins are getting their milk from dairies that inject their cows with genetically engineered bovine growth hormone (rBGH). Gross! Ben and Jerry’s on the other hand has chosen to be rBGH free. This is surprising news, considering many other countries, including my Canada, has banned the use of this hormone. How evil is Monsado, who developed rBGH, and the FDA! And I’m particularly disappointed with Haagen Daz, which until now was my favourite store bought ice cream. Boooo! Read on...

P.S. I use Clover Organic milk in my ice cream.  


  1. booo, booo, booo! what a shock. i am sure though with all the bad publicity haagen dasz will make the change?

    i'm surprised HD hasn't offered an organic line... i know they have the "5" line in the states.

  2. Since I received my ice cream maker for my birthday in May, haven't bought a pint of HD or any other ice cream, just like I haven't bought a takeout pizza since I got a stone for my oven.

    It's just too easy to make ice cream from ingredients that I can personally verify the quality of. My friends couldn't be happier, and I couldn't be more popular!
