Is the ice cream any good?

Peters Original Rainbow is a frozen dessert that won’t provide the delicious smooth creaminess of regular ice cream. However, it’s still a decent product that tastes great and is easy to scoop. It’s also affordable, costing much less than most premium brands.

The pink, green and yellow swirls are bright and fun. Perfect for drawing in children πŸ™‚

There are also no artificial colours, which parents will appreciate.

The biggest problem with Peters Rainbow is the taste. It looks so bright and colourful you expect the flavours to match. Maybe some fruity flavours? But instead, the whole tub is vanilla. It’s a letdown.

Peters whips a lot of air into this ice cream to keep costs down. This process creates a light, airy, foamy texture. It’s much less dense and indulgent than products like Haagen-Dazs, but most kids won’t notice the difference.

The main ingredient in this ice cream is water. The dairy includes reconstituted skim milk, milk solids, and cream or butter.

Milk fat

Milk fat impacts ice cream consistency. Higher levels result in a creamier, smoother mouthfeel. The Peters range has less than 10% milk fat, which means the product can’t be called ice cream.
