Mango Ice????? and not Ice-cream?

Another rant after coming across this: http://www.nytimes.com/2015/05/13/dining/mango-ice-means-summer-is-now.html

Why in the world would you not make mango ice-cream? First, Haagen Daz discontinued my favorite flavor in their extra fatty ice-cream line-up and instead moved it to their sorbet line. Talenti rubbed it in by coming up with an Alphonso Mango sorbet. I don't do sorbets - they suck.

Mango lends itself to ice cream beautifully. A ripe juicy mango is just the right ingredient for a creamy real ice-cream. I can understand an orange or lemon sorbet - citrus doesn't go very well with cream - but mango??? Grrr!
