Safeway Open Nature Ice Cream

Being a smart shopper does not always mean paying the least amount of money for what you are buying, often it makes sense to pay a little more to get something better. That’s my stand on High Fructose Corn Syrup. Once you enter America, its everywhere, from bread, to flavoured milk to ice cream to ketchup to God knows what.

Now a lot of people are of the opinion that HFCS is not bad for health and I respectfully disagree with them. I try to avoid HFCS almost completely in everything I eat. Thankfully my workplace buys premium foodstuffs with no HFCS in them and I can afford to pay a little extra for my health.

A couple of weeks ago, I felt a craving for ice cream. Now we have the Haagen Daz ice cream here, but lets admit it, it’s a bit too expensive for me too. Then I started looking at the other brands, Tilamook, Dreyers etc. To my utter dismay each one of them listed some form of corn syrup as an ingredient. Then my eyes fell upon Safeway’s Open Nature brand of ice creams. These are reasonably prices and have no artificial flavours including High Fructose Corn Syrup. The flavours are a little less though, I could find the following flavours :

  • Milk Chocolate
  • Vanilla Bean
  • Cherry Vanilla
  • Mint Choco Chip
  • Strawberry

I have had Mint Choco Chip and Milk Chocolate and can vouch for the taste. So two thumbs up to Safeway’s Open Nature range of ice creams. Remember whenever you buy anything sweet, be on the lookout for unneeded corn syrup.
