Vanilla Ice Milk… a healthier alternative to ice cream

So what’s up with this ice milk stuff? Well, when I was buying a box of DQ ice cream sandwiches, I noticed that the package said ‘Ice Milk Treats’…. I first thought “WHAT!? Not even real ice cream?!!?! BUT why do they taste so much like ice cream… texture and everything?!”. The mystery goes unsolved.
