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!

    Ice cream is perfecting bonding food. Especially when it involves Reese’s! We would enjoy Breyer’s Blasts after a night of grilling while the sun is hitting the mountains and the wind is picking up. Nice way to end the 100 degree days!
