Introduction

4/22/09 Drew Chambers Paper #9- Compare and Contrast Purcellville Effective Writing Classs Frozen Cow Juice v. Your George Washingtons Finding the Best Vanilla Ice Creams for Your Money From its birth in the 4th century, conceived in the mind of the Roman Emperor Nero, and King Tang of China in the 6th century, ice cream has reined a coveted and lusted after delicacy, with vanilla its king. However, with this current economic position, money is one thing Americans cannot afford to waste. Is it possible to find a delicious-tasting ice cream without taking out a small loan? A blind study was conducted to answer just that question- which brand of vanilla ice cream is best for your money? The contenders: Giant foods, Bloom foods, Breyer's, Edy's, and Haagen ~ Dazs. Among the standards are fat grams, cost, and creaminess. The Raw Data Starting with the number of calories per ounce we see that Bloom has an early lead with just 30 calories per ounce. ...read more.

Middle

The other tier to this component is how well the flavor would do when introduced to other flavors, or, in other words, its compatibility. Essentially, will the ice cream dominate the flavor arena? Now, the scores. Once again Bloom takes the lead with a score of 5.25, but in a tie, Giant also scores a 5.25 for "vanilla-ness". In a solo-second, Edy's scored a 3.5. And in last place we have Breyer's and Haagen ~ Dazs both with 1.75. In the category of creaminess, Giant, Edy's, and Haagen ~ Dazs, with its first win, all take first place with a score of an even 6 each. Coming in second we have Breyer's with 4 points and in its first last place, Bloom with 2 points. Moving on the fifth and final criterion sweetness, we find for the third time in a row, Giant wins with s score of 6. In a close second, Haagen ~ Dazs and Edy's score an even 4. ...read more.

Conclusion

As expected all of the ice cream samples were not the exact same amount, causing the smaller portions the melt faster than the bigger portions. This melting could, and possibly did, create a false sense of creaminess. Flavor shouldn't be only for those with a civilization of greenbacks in their wallets, but should be for everyone, a mutual bond. However, I say, why buy vanilla? Go out and buy a carton of chocolate ice cream from your local Giant!
