Review - the best store bought chocolate ice cream ever

Updated on August 24, 2013

This ice cream is so amazing. I give it my full endorsement:-) It is Harris Teeter (yes, supermarket brand) all natural southern milk chocolate ice cream with just the following five ingredients: milk, sugar, cream, cocoa, vanilla. There are no artificial flavorings or colorings and no high fructose corn syrup.

Additionally, there is no guar gum (although the guar gum has been reported to have some health benefits) or carrageenan, etc., etc. that can often be found in some ice creams.

Nothing has been added to improve texture. This ice cream is just naturally creamy and delicious. It is farm fresh, straight from Hunter Farms in North Carolina. When you buy it from the southern supermarket, it tastes very fresh. There is no freezer burn taste.

Share this ice cream (half gallon container) with friends and use it up within 3-5 days after opening for best taste.

Harris Teeter brand all natural southern milk chocolate ice cream (in a green container) typically retails for about $5.19 and it is worth every penny. Bypass the cheaper ice creams to get this one. You can also often find it on a half price sale or even a buy two containers get three free sale. Yes, you heard right. Sales rotate at Harris Teeter and every few months or so, this ice cream is on a phenomenal sale.

I would not recommend the buy 2 get 3 free however unless it can be used up in a fairly timely manner, like when you are having a party with lots of people. Even if left unopened, it will not taste quite as good if left in your freezer for prolonged periods of time.

I have tried other flavors of this brand and the southern milk chocolate is by far the best and not because I consider chocolate to be my favorite flavor. It is not necessarily so.

I recommend you try this ice cream asap if you live right in North Carolina and can get that farm fresh taste delivered right to the supermarket from the Hunter Farms also in NC. This ice cream is also available in Washington, DC and other southern areas.

An indulgent treat, this ice cream has 150 calories per 1/2 cup with 15 grams of sugar and 8 grams of fat. This and other milk based products are a good source of calcium.

I rate it 5/5 stars *****

      That looks really good. I like to get ice cream from local shops but there are some really good brands out there.

      Hi alekhouse, thanks for stopping by and commenting. I hope things are good with you. I've checked it out for you and you're right. Unfortunately, the store is not in Kentucky- only NC, SC, VA, GA, TN, FL, MD and Delaware.

      I had never heard of Harris Teeter before moving to the southern states but it is a great supermarket and a lot of their store brand items are very good and cheaper than buying other brands. As you know, often times, buying a name brand with a coupon is still more expensive than buying a store brand that is just as good. You're not too far. Maybe when you visit one of these states, you'll remember to try out this great ice cream:-)

      Talk to you soon. Take care.
