Really bad ice cream.

I don't mean old or expired or spoiled, I mean just bad, really bad tasting. I have had ice cream that was great, good, pretty good, ok, but never Bad. Until now. It was a generic store brand, that I figured was worth a try because it was so cheap. Mistake. Big mistake. It was awful. Even in a milkshake drowned in chocolate and peanut butter sauce, it was horrendous. I didn't know that could happen. I always thought ice cream was like pizza- never bad, just not as good. Boy was I wrong. I won't make that mistake again. Has this ever happened to you? Have you ever had bad ice cream? What kind was it?

Hi Silly ,nice to see you,not seen you for a while.I am not an ice cream lover,some can be poor especially the cheaper kind that you buy in the large family tubs.The only ice cream that I can really say that I would very much enjoy is the clotted cream ice cream that you get when you are on holiday.I do like rum and raisin,but it has to be good rum and raisin.Care to share a cornet with me?

Yeah, the large tubs are usually bad. We had that a lot when I was a kid because we had a big family. I don't think I minded- we were lucky to have ice cream at all. But now I am more picky. I like the gourmet ones too, sometimes.

I also love ice cream so much I hardly ever had bad experiences. But yes I also had some really bad ice cream that was terrible no matter what we did to it. It was grainy instead of creamy. Not sweet at all. Like licking ice and sand. It was a no name brand of vanilla ice cream. I would never buy that again. I recently found out that my local convenience store now sells that soft serve ice cream made from real cream that I love. I only have been able to get that in the summer at a dairy freeze a half hour away. Deadly. LOL

I love soft serve. Nice to have it nearby, though I'd get it too often!

Hi. Sillychick. I don't remember ever having or eating bad ice cream before. When the ice cream has freezer burn on it, I will throw it away. Once it gets freezer burn with ice on it, it then becomes no good. I usually will keep my ice cream in a brown paper ice cream frozen bag to keep it fresh. They also have plastic ice cream containers that you can use to store your ice cream in so that it will remain fresh.
