Blue Bunny v. Breyer's Ice Cream Throwdown

It was Blue Bunny's chocolate ice cream versus Breyer's Extra Creamy Chocolate. Usually ice cream is made extra creamy by whipping air into it (the industry term is "overrun"). This is why I preferred Blue Bunny and its fudgier consistency (like a nice fudgcicle). You pretty easily identify overrun ice cream by grabbing the carton in your hand, if it doesn't feel heavy for its size they've probably added air to it. I know some prefer the smooth mouth feel of this stuff, but I don't.

As far as the chocolate tastes, they were different, but I didn't necessarily prefer one over the other. Breyer's seemed to have more of a roasted chocolate flavor, but that could be because it was burned from being in the freezer longer.
