What is your favorite summertime treat?

Mine is ice cream!

I LOVE ice cream!  Don’t ask me what my favorite flavor is, though, because that answer totally depends on the day and my mood, or where I’m getting the ice cream (and if it’s hand-dipped or soft-serve).  I am realizing that I’m becoming a bit of an ice cream snob, though – I can tell the difference between the better brands and the store brands and I want the good stuff!

So, I was very excited to find out that I was selected to participate in a Mom Central blog tour, featuring Breyers Smooth & Dreamy.  Breyers is definitely one of the leaders in ice cream products, don’t you think?  I love their regular ice cream flavors, and the fact that they are made with all-natural ingredients (things I’m familiar with and can actually pronounce!)

The Smooth & Dreamy products were a pleasant change of pace from regular ice cream.  I’ll call them “popsicle” products for adults!  They are available in 6 different varieties (you will find more information about them here – click on the individual pictures for details on each product):

  • Triple Chocolate Chip bars
  • Vanilla Caramel Chip bars
  • Chocolate Covered Strawberry Bars
  • Vanilla Fudge Brownie Sandwiches
  • Chocolate Caramel Brownie Sandwiches
  • Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Sandwiches

imagehandler.ashx Our local grocery store only had 2 varieties – the Vanilla Fudge Brownie sandwiches and the Triple Chocolate Chip bars.  Since Ashley isn’t a huge chocolate fan, she asked if we could try the sandwiches (which didn’t look near as chocolaty). 

The one word description of these sandwiches would be YUM!  I loved them.  Now, I know I’m a professed ice cream freak and all, but I could have seriously ate the whole box in one sitting (though I refrained!)  These little treats are only 160 calories and 4g of fat per serving.  They contain no artificial flavors or colors.

The long description of them is that they are two oval-shaped brownie cookies (think brownie flavor in a crunchy cookie) filled with vanilla ice cream with brownie pieces in it.  Ashley, Brian, and I all loved them.  Gracie wasn’t as crazy about them; but she’s 10 and ice cream is not her favorite treat. 

I’m excited to try some of the other varieties.  What about you?  Have you tried Breyers Smooth & Dreamy yet?  I’d love to hear your thoughts.  What is your favorite flavor?  What kind should we try next?  What kind would YOU try if you were choosing for the first time.  Leave me a comment and let me know (there just might be a surprise in it for you!) 

NOTE: I received free product from Breyers in exchange for my sharing this post and my honest thoughts.  I also received a gift certificate as a “thank you” for sharing my thoughts.

I have not tried the Breyer's ice cream bars yet, but they sound good. Our favorite ice cream is Breyer's. The basic vanilla contains NO high fructose corn syrup, so is safe even for those of us with corn allergies to eat. Yet we also buy other flavors with chocolate in them. The vanilla fudge brownie and chocolate chip cookie dough sandwich bars sound especially yummy! :)
