Make an ordinary day fun with Breyers {and a chance to win $100}!



We are ice cream people. Like, year-round, all-the-time, ice-cream-in-every-way-we-can-get-it people. We have tried every brand and in many countries. So when BlogHer and Breyers asked us to try out their new flavors--Breyers Blasts!® Chocolate REESE’S® and Breyers Blasts!® OREO® Birthday Blast! frozen dairy desserts -- we JUMPED at the chance. In fact, one of our favorite family stories revolves around Breyers.

True story. Want to hear it?

So, Doug and I are at the grocery store, pre-kids, and Breyers is on sale super-cheap, like 2 for $5 or something like that. He and I are both standing at the freezer doors, not agreeing on which two flavors to get. So, as good adults should, we agreed to both get two. Two each for our OWN consumption. I grab my two and Doug, apparently riddled with guilt, says loudly as he is grabbing his two, "This should be enough for the party!" That was years ago, and to this day we still use that phrase to excuse our large purchases. :) We're good at having fun wherever we go.
As it turned out, we were in NJ with family when we tried out the new flavors. No better time to kick off the summer and have a little fun! The day was hot and perfect for some frozen treats!
Here's how Breyers describes the new flavors:
  • Breyers Blasts! Chocolate REESE’S: Chunks of REESE’S Peanut Butter Cup pieces and REESE’S Peanut Butter swirled in chocolate frozen dairy dessert.
  • Breyers Blasts! OREO Birthday Blast!: OREO cookie pieces and rainbow sprinkles in artificially flavored cake-flavored frozen dairy dessert.
To give the new flavors the best fighting chance, we told the boys we could make sundaes with whatever toppings they wanted. We had sprinkles, hot fudge, waffle bowls, whipped cream and more. Then we let the boys dictate the building of their sundaes.
Everyone had a great time building their sundaes and enjoying the new flavors. Moses was especially ecstatic. This just goes to show that it doesn't take much to make an ordinary day into a FUN one!
My nephew Blake decided that he likes to party without a spoon. It's cool...whatever gives you the best time, Blake! We all had a great time, the new flavors were awesome, and Moses is still talking about how fun it was to make his own sundae creation! It's the little things, friends! :)
It was all fun and games until I declared it bath and bed time.

Well, I have to admit that I might want to sneak this myself instead of sharing! My birthday is coming up and what would go better with ice cream than cake! Both flavors sound delicious, I'd have a hard time deciding between the two!

My girls would love the Reeses flavor!

Bunnyslady said...

My husband and I have ice cream time every night. It is our reward at the end of the day. We like to sit in bed with our ice cream in our mugs and watch a little TV with our dog. When we are done, our dog makes sure that our mugs are clean so we don't have to take them to the kitchen until the morning. So, I guess our entire family enjoys ice cream time...

Nancy said...

My nephew and his family are coming home in a month after being stationed across the country for a year. We are having a homecoming party and this would be a fantastic addition to our get-together. Thanks for hosting!

Nicole S said...

We love ice cream around here! We would probably enjoy our ice cream outside while sitting at our table and looking at our swimming pool!

We LOVE ice cream! My husband eats his in nice even layers all around the outside of the container working his way toward the middle. I just dig out the chunks and leave the rest (what a mean wife!) Needless to say we usually end up with our own containers of ice cream. In fact, that is always part of my advice to newlyweds "always get your own ice cream."

Those are 2 of my favorite combinations! We buy 2 flavors then when we get home I cut each container in half right down the middle! That's when I'm feeling like I need a big splurge! Otherwise it's just a scoop or 2!

Mat and I have had the oreo flavor and it's awesome. Mat loves sweet to the max ice cream, nothing can be too sweet. so naturally his favorite is birthday cake remix, which is too cavity enducing for me. this oreo is perfect; cake flavor for him, less sweet and oreos for me :) and with a 2 1/2 year old, every day is fun :) he's sweet and innocent and fantastic, even without ice cream :)
