Default Costco's Kirkland Ice Cream

Anyone ever try this stuff? Got a membership today, and picked up a 1-gallon pack of this ice cream, and it's really an odd one. There's 270 calories per serving (1/2 cup) and a whopping 18 grams of fat. I believe that surpasses most Ben & Jerry's ice creams. No HFCS either, which is surprising.

The texture of this stuff is something else. It's like a really thick butter spread. Does anyone know what could create such an oddity? Fresh cream, skim milk, and sugar are the top three ingredients, so do you think they just overdo it on the "cream" and skimp on the "ice?"

I love the calorie count, but I can't yet decide whether or not I like the texture.
