Hollanda is basically powdered milk and vegetable oil, not really ice cream in my opinion, should be called a frozen dessert....

I always liked the Costco Kirkland vanilla. Cream was the first ingredient, followed by milk. No vegetable oil like that garbage Holanda.

Cows don't "give" ice cream....

Right, but it was/is a good question.  What causes a 40% increase like that?

In the US, we would hear that it is 'Covid-19' but of course one cannot either prove or disprove an answer like that!

Does anybody know why Holanda brand has zero imagination?  All they make is Neopolitan, Cookies-n-Cream and Vanilla.  That is basically all you see in México, and God forbid, don't ever try the off brands.  From time to time you will see Sealtest ice cream at Soriana with flavors like cookie dough and reeses cup ice cream among other exciting flavors.  But never at Wal-Mart.

At one time I owned a ice cream parlor.  The most popular flavor I sold was chocolate.  There is a privately owned ice cream store chain here in Oklahoma, which is also now in Texas , called Braum's.  They have their own dairy herd which is used for the ice cream.

The best ice cream I have found around here is Dolphy. There is a shop by the Beer Garden in Chapala. https://www.dolphhttps://www.dolphy.com.mx/index.php/productos/heladosy.com.mx/

That is 29 flavors.

I like small-batch ice cream with exotic flavors.  Best locally is the homemade Ginger Lemongrass ice cream at Chopsticks in Ajijic.  We buy and keep it in our freezer at home.  

Here is the description from their website, 

Our homemade ice cream is made using full fat milk, heavy cream and egg yolks giving the final product a rich, smooth and creamy mouth feel with every spoonful. Our flavours range from the exotic – Ginger Lemongrass to the more traditional – Chocolate, Chocolate Chip. Ask us what flavours Betty made this week.

Holanda has many flavors. I like the chocolate chip mint, and the black raspberry cheese.

The individual store chooses which flavors to stock.

I always thought the handmade Mexican ice creams were supposed to be among the best in the world? Handmade in the sense that workers use wooden paddles to knead the freezing ice cream. One article I read was about a heladeria in Jocotepec.

There was a ice cream shop in Sayulita that sold Blue Bell ice cream. It was great and they had tons of yummy flavors- the cinnamon was my favorite and the raspberry cheesecake was delicious, too.

Isn't there a place next door to Pranzo's that sells blue bell ice cream. Think the store is called Manhattan. Never been so can't comment further.
