mother-daughter bonding over Breyers® Blasts! (review & giveaway)

When I was pregnant with both of my girls, I had…a slight ice cream problem, you might say. I ate a lot of it. I would come up with crazy concoctions and toppings- fruit and candies and syrups and OH YUM. We make jokes that Maggie is 75% ice cream, because that was pretty much 75% of my diet during the last weeks of my pregnancy. Now that Maggie’s a little older, one of our favorite things to do is bond over sweets. We’ll order dessert when we’re out at a restaurant or share a couple of cookies after dinner at home. Dan just laughs and rolls his eyes because he’s not really into dessert. (I KNOW. AND I MARRIED HIM ANYWAY!) But it’s okay, since that just means there are more goodies for Maggie and me! We don’t have to share with him. Lucky us!

Maggie and I got a chance recently to try out some new flavor varieties from Breyers: Breyers Blasts!® Chocolate REESE’S® and Breyers Blasts!® OREO® Birthday Blast! To say we were excited is an understatement. When I read the descriptions of the flavors, I want to eat them NOW.

Breyers Blasts! Chocolate REESE’S: This new variety features chunks of REESE’S Peanut Butter Cup pieces and REESE’S Peanut Butter swirled in chocolate frozen dairy dessert.

Breyers Blasts! OREO Birthday Blast!: This new variety features OREO cookie pieces and rainbow sprinkles in artificially flavored cake-flavored frozen dairy dessert.

We finished dinner and couldn’t WAIT for Dessert Time. Breyers Blasts! Breyers Blasts!

We dug right in. And it was delicious. Breyers Blasts! Breyers Blasts! Breyers Blasts!

Maggie and I both agreed that the Chocolate REESE’S was our favorite. I mean, it’s chocolate. And peanut butter. Enough said, right? It was SO GOOD. The OREO flavor was good, but it was very, very sweet. Maggie said it tasted like birthday cake icing, and as soon as she said that, I was like YES. That’s exactly it! And we are both the ones to scrape off cake frosting and eat our cake bare, so we’re probably not the best judge of this one. But I think if you’re a big fan of frosting, you would love the Breyers Blasts! OREO Birthday Blast!

Otherwise, we highly recommend the Breyers Blasts! Chocolate REESE’S.

Breyers Blasts!

    On the back porch with lots and lots of napkins- but even more smiles and giggles!! We haven’t had ice cream in our freezer for almost a year- I think something is getting added to tonight’s grocery list!!

    Oh man, between you and Michelle posting this all I want is ice cream now! We enjoy our ice cream in our house, but try not to eat it TOO often. With these heat wave? Man, I would sit down and eat that entire carton outside on the patio. By myself, preferably. (Not really. I’d share.)

  13. My younger daughter is made almost entirely of Heath Bar Bilzzards. :) And my tummy has the stretch marks to prove it.

    We would enjoy Breyers Blasts on the newly-built deck my husband built for us last month. Summer sun + a nice deck to sit on + ice cream = perfection! And of course we’d add waffle cones, sprinkles, whipped cream, and cherries!

    I would enjoy it on the couch, wearing the stretchiest pair of stretch pants I own, while watching some tawdry HBO series, like True Blood. Thats how I do dessert around here.

    Honestly, I would probably enjoy it while sitting on the couch in my pajamas watching Biggest Loser. I mean, if they can’t enjoy ice cream, someone has to do it for them!

    I would enjoy the Reese’s version after supper with my husband. I am always a huge fan of ice cream (it’s one of my favorite foods!), but we’ve both been really into eating it together more often now that it’s summertime. Thanks for the sweepstakes!

    I think Hayley and I would enjoy this much like you guys did- grab a spoon and dig in! (Geoff isn’t an I’ve cream person either- more for us!)

    @omg_youguys

    I’d enjoy it as dinner. Oops, I mean *after* dinner, while lounging in front of the TV.

    We love ice cream here too (Corey, not so much). In fact, Zane requested an ice cream sundae bar for his next birthday party! Guess we’ll have to check out Breyers Blasts and we’ll just have to do what the Birthday Boy wants…. :)

    Ice cream would be fabulous to have for our family picnic!

    Jul 2 9:08 pm


  33. My family and I would enjoy Breyers Blasts with an ice cream bar all summer long. With different toppings, syrups and sauces to choose from, we can all get our favorites and have a blast!
