I don't know what the fat content is, but the one at Richardson's is so creamy. And yes, it is difficult to scoop. But that is all right with me. It doesn't go soft in the freezer like some national brands I have bought. And the temp in my freezer is 0ºF. Whenever Spike has to work up on the North Shore, he will go out of his way to go get their ice cream. Some for him and some for me.
