Alden’s story began with his mother’s personal brand – Julie’s Organic Ice Cream.  He wanted to make an organic ice cream that was equally good, but with a lighter formula.  All of Alden’s Ice Cream is USDA certified organic.  There are eight flavors to choose from: Mint Chip, Blackberry, Vanilla Bean, Chocolate Chocolate Chip, Butter Brittle, Strawberry, Peanut Butter Chip, and Cookies and Cream.  They have two new flavors that are “coming soon”: Root Beer Float and Fresh Peaches n Cream.  All of Alden’s Ice Cream comes in packages that are a little more than a pint.  You cannot buy Alden’s Ice Cream directly through the website.  This means that the price could vary depending on which store you purchase it at.

Foods that are organic were grown without the use of pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, sewage sludge, or ionizing radiation.  Organic foods are GMO free.  The milk in Alden’s Ice Cream comes from cows that eat a 100% organic diet which comes from a combination of organic pasture and organic feed.  The cows are not given antibiotics (except as a last resort, in which case, they can no longer be part of an organic herd).  The vanilla extract used in Alden’s ice cream is made from grains like corn or wheat.  However, they are considered hypoallergenic because the gluten breaks down in the distilling process of the alcohol.  Most of Alden’s flavors are gluten free, (except for the Cookies and Cream, which contains wheat).  However, since the ice cream is made on shared equipment, there is a chance that it could be cross contaminated with wheat or gluten.  Alden’s Ice Cream is part of Oregon Ice Cream Co., which has its headquarters in Vancouver, Washington.  In case you were wondering, Alden’s favorite flavor is Chocolate Chocolate Chip.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
