Ice Cream Social - Store Brand Style

You asked, we delivered. We’ve tested Kroger versus Turkey Hill, Food Lion versus Breyers, and Great Value versus Blue Bunny. Brandefy loves ice cream, so this one was especially sweet!

Breyer’s French Vanilla Ice Cream vs. Food Lion French Style Vanilla Ice Cream

Similarity Score: 79%

The testers were split on this one, and it comes down to preference here. Breyers is a firmer, yet still creamier, ice cream. Food Lion does have a stronger vanilla taste, so if taste is more important to you, you can switch to save!

Turkey Hill Cookies n’ Cream Ice Cream vs. Kroger Deluxe Cookies n’ Cream Ice Cream

Similarity Score: 88%

Testers would switch to save. The Kroger ice cream has a plastic lid lip that protects against drips. The Kroger is more of a whipped cream texture while Turkey Hill is firmer and like traditional ice cream. The cookies in the Kroger ice cream come in bigger chunks.

Turkey Hill Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream vs. Kroger Deluxe Jammed Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream

Similarity Score: 74%

The Kroger ice cream has a plastic lid lip that protects against drips. The biggest difference in these ice creams is texture. The Kroger is more of a whipped cream texture while Turkey Hill is firmer and like traditional ice cream. Testers did prefer the taste of the Kroger ice cream because it had bigger chunks of dough and thus the dough flavor is more prevalent.

The name brand has more of a vanilla flavor, while the store brand is sweeter. The texture is very similar. We also prefer the plastic packaging on the Blue Bunny.
