Testers at the consumer research group tasted 13 vanillas and 11 chocolates. Consumer Reports says topping the vanilla list: Haagen-Dazs and Ben and Jerry's. The No. 1 chocolate was Archer Farms Belgian Chocolate — that's Target's in-store brand.

STEVE INSKEEP, host:

Now let's set out onto our last word in business, which is ice cream. More precisely, Consumer Reports has its new summer ice cream ratings. Testers at the consumer research group tasted 13 vanillas and 11 chocolates. Topping the vanillas: Haagen-Dazs and Ben and Jerry's. No surprise there. Number one in chocolate, though, was Archer Farms Belgian Chocolate, which is the in-store brand at Target. Consumer Reports describes it as having a complex chocolate flavor enhanced by bits of dark chocolate.

Wal-Mart also made the list, though its store-brand chocolate dribbled in at number seven.

That's the business news on MORNING EDITION from NPR News. I'm Steve Inskeep.
