We set out to find which of the major ice cream brands made the best chocolate. Ice cream from four companies was tasted: Breyers, Ben & Jerry’s, Häagen-Dazs and Edy’s.

As soon as we took a bite, the ice cream melted in our mouths. A few seconds passed before the chocolate taste arrived. After swallowing the ice cream, our mouths felt dry. Breyers is both kosher and gluten free. The Breyers pledge states that no artificial growth hormones are used on the cows that produce the milk, and all ingredients are non-GMO.

Disclaimer: We were not able to find a regular chocolate ice cream for this brand, so we tried Chocolate Therapy, which has cake and cookie bits in it.

When the ice cream melts in your mouth, there is a faint banana taste. Ben & Jerry’s uses non-GMO ingredients, fair-trade cocoa, vanilla and sugar. It gets the milk and cream from “happy and healthy cows,” and it uses eggs from cage-free hens.

Häagen-Dazs tastes fresh and fancy and has a soft-serve texture, despite the fact that the ice cream was melty. Haagen-Dazs has perfected their chocolate ice cream by making it creamy, chocolaty and absolutely delicious. Häagen-Dazs makes gluten-free and non-GMO ice cream.

Edy’s ice cream is very creamy and has a normal ice cream texture. However, the ice cream doesn’t have as strong a chocolate taste as the others we tried. Edy’s has no GMOs and no artificial colors or flavors. Instead of using regular milk, Edy’s uses non-fat milk.

Overall, each ice cream brand uses a different recipe, which results in different tastes and textures. People have their own preferences in ice cream. This review can serve as a guide for your next ice cream purchase.

Gabby Ahitow, News Editor

When I moved to Pelham, I got my first taste of being a reporter. My elementary school, Colonial, had a paper of its own. and I started writing as a reporter. Later that year, I became a editor of my own section. In fifth grade, I met Mr. Zahradnik, who has showed me the ropes on every project I took on. I started the beginning of sixth grade as a reporter for the PMS Pelham Post and the News of Pelham. The NoP fell apart and the PMS Pelham Post wasn’t for me. So, when Mr. Zahradnik came to me with the idea of the Pelham Examiner, I was over the moon exited. I’m going into seventh grade at PMS and am a news editor and reporter here at the Pelham Examiner.
