The other night we were at some friends for a bbq, and had some ice cream for dessert. This was not any ice cream, it was "Extra Rich Light Vanilla Bean". Yes, that's right EXTRA, RICH and LIGHT. It was from Haagen-Dazs, and on the inside of the cover it explained ALL that went into their products. All I can say is WOW!! Here's what was written on the inside of the cover,
"We spent ten years with European scientists perfecting our Extra Rich Light ice cream. To capture all the richness of our classic flavors, we developed a unique blending process that preserves all the taste, but with only half the fat. Our light ice cream is all natural, with no artificial ingredients or fat substitutes."
TEN YEARS, with EUROPEAN SCIENTISTS to develop ice cream. I am sure with that kind of dedication a cure for a disease could have been found don't you think?
Then we opened up the "Fat Free Raspberry Sorbet". Not such a compelling name, but let me again quote was inside this unassuming title...
"We began more than 40 years ago with three flavors, and it took us six years to develop a fourth. That's the patient and uncompromising approach we've taken to every new product we've crafted ever since".
40 YEARS AGO with THREE FLAVORS, and SIX years to develop a fourth. OK, so they didn't work with European scientists on this one. Perhaps an entire cure for something couldn't be found, but maybe something might have been started. A plan for universal health care in the US perhaps??
