Alden's Ice Cream

Alden's Ice CreamAlden's Ice Cream claims to have a range of gourmet ice cream products made from all natural and organic ingredients.

The Eugene, OR-based company goes on to say that its ice cream contains no pesticides, no artificial ingredients, no antibiotics, no genetically modified ingredients, and no hormones. But it does contains saturated fats ranging from 5g to 9g per serving, depending on the flavor.

Flavors include Vanilla Bean, Chocolate Chocolate Chip, Strawberry, and Cookies 'n Cream.

The "organically farmed" and "certified USDA organic" ice cream is available in the USA in a 48 oz. resealable carton priced between $5.69 and $5.89.

The company's website doesn't provide a store locator. Probably available in stores around Oregon, however. Visit their website: http://www.aldensicecream.com/

By the way I just bought my first Aldens Ice Cream at Western Supermarkets in Birmingham AL and it tastes great!!!
I think it's wonderful that it has 5-9 grams of naturally sat fat per serving. That's why it has cream in the name as opposed to ice, oil, trans fat and corn syrup like most major brands-- read their lables! Please cite any scientific study that shows that natural saturated fats in ice cream cause any health issues whatsoever! You may want to rethink fats and veggie oils if you read the article linked below from a major university researcher who has fought this battle for 30 years! Wonder why it took so long for trans fats to make the headlines- the article explains part of that "mystery."

I am eating some Alden's mint chip as I type. It is DELICIOUS! It's a very tasty ice cream at a very reasonable price for an organic product especially of this quality. It is also lower in calories than many brands of ice cream (130-180 per half cup as opposed to 200-250) and it is lower in sugars at 3 gm per serving. This was my first time buying it and I will definitely get it again.

Whoops that was supposed to say 13 gm of sugar! Big difference!

Absolutely the best ice cream I've ever had. Delicious. One of the best organic products I've tried.

The strawberry is great! It's actually the only ice cream I buy for my daughter and I.

I've tried the mint chip and it was okay, but the chocolate chocolate chip and blackberry were outstanding.

Just tried the mint chip for the first time. It is SUPERB best I've ever tasted. I love this product and will buy again and again.

They've got Butter Brickle in the stores now that is fantastic! I wish they'd make Coconut. I tried to send them an email requesting it, but the address on their website bounced back.

I recently discovered Alden's ice cream. The chocolate chocolate chip is now my favorite ice cream flavor. The mint chocolate chip will go down as my second favorite of this flavor (nothing can seem to top Baskin Robbins on this one). I am trying the strawberry and it is better than most that I have tried, though I wish it had strawberry chunks in it. The price is very reasonable for it's quality.

I am so happy that Alden's ice cream is available here, the Mint Chip is so good! I cannot wait to try the other flavors (tried strawberry once, but I'm not a strawberry fan). This is my favorite store ice cream brand.

Vanilla is excellent, way better than most. If you can't find Alden's, Turkey Hill Vanilla Bean is also good, and priced much lower when on sale.

I've just tried Alden's vanilla bean ice cream and was very, very disappointed after the raves from a friend. It's so loaded with emulsifier that it has the texture of soft cream a la Dairy Queen, the vanilla flavor is hardly discernible and it did NOT contain any vanilla bean flecks at all, contrary to the label description. On a 10-point scale I would give it a 2.

This ice cream was not what I expected. It could be a lot better. And honestly, they do not taste organic. I would go with Dreyer's. So much better. Alden's is gross.

After tasting Alden's cookies and cream, I did an internet search to see if I was crazy - and yes, apparently I am. I wasn't too keen on it, and cookies and cream is my favorite ice cream flavor!

It tastes kinda salty to me. It's not expired, so that's not it. Am I okay? I think I need to check into the hospital...my taste buds are clearly diseased and malfunctioning.

Weird...seems like most people LOVE this ice cream. I tried it last night (chocolate chocolate chip) and thought it was terrible. Very bland-tasting, almost like a cheap, generic store-brand...except it wasn't "cheap" at over $7 a container. I definitely won't be buying Alden's again. Oh well.

I'm surprised to see that so many people love this ice cream. I've tried the raspberry and the strawberry and found both to be very artificial tasting. My sister tried the strawberry (her favorite ice cream flavor) and said it tasted like bubble gum. I just don't understand how anyone can say that this tastes like real strawberries. I definitely prefer Haagen Dazs strawberry with real pieces of berries in the ice cream.

As for the texture, I find it to be kind of gummy. This is just such a strange ice cream brand that doesn't taste organic at all.

I bought this the other day. I'd had Alden's in the past and was impressed. Did they change their recipe? I looked at the ingredients and there are about a dozen ingredients - a lot of gums (guar, locust bean) and tapioca. That would not be in homemade ice cream. I feel like I got fooled by the Organic label!!

Elizabeth on 7/20/2013 03:40:00 PM said...

I really don't care about the fat content - it's ice cream! I hate it when the fat content is lowered by adding weird ingredients you'd never put in homemade things (guar gum? locust bean gum? tapioca powder?)
Very disappointed. The price is about the same as Breyers and I stopped buying that because they added guar gum.
I feel fooled by the "organic" label.
