Scoop!

A report by 'Which' has revealed that, when they tested 24 products purchased in the UK, labelled as 'vanilla ice-cream', 10 contained no cream or fresh milk and 7 contained no vanilla (https://www.theguardian.com/money/2018/aug/27/one-in-five-vanilla-ice-creams-has-no-vanilla-cream-or-fresh-milk). Prior to 2015, when labelling laws were changed, this would have been illegal. It is implied that the change was to enable vegan and reduced-fat products to acquire the label (to facilitate 'healthier' eating?). I can understand why cream and fresh milk might be replaced but surely (in spite of its expense) vanilla ought to be an ingredient of an item with this label.
