As an ice cream connoisseur, I’m often trying different ice creams, sorbets and gelatos – yes, they’re all different things! There is, however, a distinct lack of quality sherbets on the market for us to delve in to. I haven’t really found many that I thought were good enough to share with you guys – until I tried Edy’s Orange Sherbet, that is.
If you’re curious about what the difference between the different types of ice cream are, then the basics is this;
- Sorbet is fruit based.
- Sherbet is essentially a sorbet with a little milk added
- Ice cream is mainly cream based – sometimes with milk depending on the recipe.
- If it uses milk, then technically it’s a gelato!
Anyway, this Edy’s orange sherbet is pretty delicious and I haven’t managed to find any other sherbets that can match it in terms of flavor and texture. Let’s have a look at why I think it’s the best brand of orange sherbet.
Whenever you consider ‘low calorie’ anything, you’re usually automatically thinking “this probably won’t taste as good as the regular version”. The good thing about Edy’s is that this really isn’t the case. Even though it’s not the richest sherbet I’ve ever tasted, I think it matches it’s competitors in terms of taste. Which is great, because it’s actually made with skim milk. This means that you don’t need to be too concerned with calories – half a cup of Edy’s is only around 120 calories. Pretty great right?
I don’t know about you, but if I want an orange ice cream or sherbet, I want it to taste strong. I wanna have a aftertaste in my mouth after I’ve finished eating. This is definitely what you’ll get with Edy’s, as one of the main ingredients is orange juice from concentrate. This is great for those of us who like a strong tasting sherbet!
If you read other reviews on this blog, you’ll probably know; I’m super critical. Well, I can’t be too critical of this one, especially the texture. It really is one of the better sherbets I’ve tasted store bought, and I should know; I’ve tried a lot!.
In conclusion, Edy’s are one of the better brands out there when it comes to quality and taste. I’d have no trouble recommending them to a friend, so if you’re interested in Edy’s Ice Cream then I recommend this the first flavor that you try!
