Eggs in ice cream?

Mike - give this a try. Get some of that soft serve vanilla or chocolate, a cup full of ice, and a cup of coffee. Mix all three. Wow, a delicious and free fancy coffee drink. I read this on here somewhere before and finally tried it. Heaven!

We like to make the hot chocolate and add the frozen stuff to it.  Yummy!

Just because I am from Wisconsin, I get a bit annoyed when people say ice cream has eggs in it. Ice cream never has eggs in it, if there is egg in it, then it is a custard. Now, Wisconsin is also home to many great custard stands and yes, people get lazy and say lets go get ice cream at Kopp's (um, they don't have ice cream, only custard). Here is a link to the flavors at the UW Dairy Store, if you click on the flavors, you will get the ingredient list you will note that only the custard based flavors have eggs. The bigger issue (at least at Wisconsin) was that the ice cream isn't vegetarian. Ice cream has gelatin, which is an animal by-product (and is used as a binder), so people who would be willing to eat dairy (and eggs) were upset that they had been eating gelatin and had no idea about that, so now people look at the ingredient list to find the one or two flavors that don't include gelatin, the "super premium flavors" use plant based binders. So, now you have one more thing to worry about.  https://babcockhalldairystore.wisc.edu/ice-cream/


It is acceptable to refer to ice cream containing eggs colloquially as "ice cream". It is sometimes referred to as French-style ice cream, whereas without eggs is sometimes referred to as Philadelphia-style ice cream:



You are right, French-style ice cream is technically a frozen custard, but I think it is appropriate to refer to French-style ice cream as "ice cream" based on common usage for centuries - Procopio put eggs in his ice cream mixture at his cafe, and this was considered ice cream:



Pudding for example can be made without or without eggs, and people still refer to an egg based pudding as "pudding" instead of "custard", due to the pudding having a softer set then a traditional custard.
