yes, the place where they source their ingredients must certainly matter too, like which dairy, etc.

@HillJ...you mean they sell the Three Twins brand? as opposed to the Godiva, right?

i've often compared ingredients and i have been amazed at how the same ingredients listed in the same order can wind up totally different to the taste buds!!!! i have thought, gee, i'd like to see their process or quantities of ingredients to see what makes the difference in brands using the exact same ingredients!!!

Where can I find Godiva Ice Cream

ok, since Godiva ice cream is gone from the U.S. and that was THE best ever--for me, i've discovered a close second....Three Twins brand, Chocolate Peanut Butter. BUT you must half melt it at least!!! Don't microwave it, just let it melt. Oh, YUM!!!! It is made in Petaluma, Ca. so you may not find it in a lot of places...Whole Foods does carry it and so does Mother's Market in So. Cal. Whole Foods carries the brand, but you may have to special order the Chocolate Peanut Butter. That's the only flavor i really like in that brand, though the lemon cookie has potential.

omg! i discovered a brand when i was in Marin County, California. It is fantastic.

"Three Twins" is the brand and in particular, I loved their chocolate peanut butter--but you must semi melt it before eating. That brings out the flavor. and the other one they make that is fantastic is lemon cookie. unusual flavor and both are incredibly delicious. don't forget to let it half melt though first! I could only find that brand in that area and at healthy stores.

Where can I find Godiva Ice Cream

thanks Thurinan...i'm so glad someone agrees with me about their candy. It's terrible. I've never liked it, but when i tried their ice cream, i got the shock of my life at how great it was. I gave up dairy for a few years and i only recently started looking for it again and discovered the sad situation. I had a similar thing happen when i recently found a chocolate bar that surpassed all others...the brand was Seeds of Change. Right after i made the fantastic discovery that they had the best chocolate bars, they stopped making them cause Mars bought them out!!! Double Darn!!!!

Without a doubt, Godiva ice cream, esp. chocolate, was THE best ever ice cream. I can't believe they stopped making it and no other company scooped up their recipe?!!!!!! As a kid, I loved Pierre's French ice cream, but i can't find that in California and don't know if it's as good as when i was a kid over 45 years ago!!! But i'm so disappointed to hear that Godiva ice cream is no more! I don't think ANY other brand even came close to the chocolatey richness of Godiva. I do not like their candy, but their ice cream was superlative!!!!
Now i am eating "So Delicious" brand chocolate non dairy ice cream made with coconut milk. Not bad, and lower calorie than others, but oh, how i miss Godiva.
