Review & Giveaway: Breyers Smooth & Dreamy

Mom Central recently asked me if I wanted to be a part of the Breyers Smooth And Dreamy blog tour. Hello, chocolate and ice cream? Of course!


With the hot Summer weather, most of us turn to cooler snacks for treats. Frozen and fresh fruit is of course, the healthiest, but sometimes we crave a little something sweeter. I admit awhile back when we heard the ice cream truck, we went flying to get some. A frozen chocolate-y treat on a hot day? That's my idea of heaven! ;)

Breyers Smooth And Dreamy line is chock full of ice cream bars and sandwiches. All the packages come with six bars, and the average retail price seems to be about $3.99 a box (Safeway has them on sale right now for $2.99). This is a lot cheaper overall than the ice cream truck - and the good part is that according to the nutrition information on the boxes, everything is 160 calories or less per serving, so you can indulge in one without feeling too guilty! They are also free of artificial flavors and colors. (Have you noticed the coloring in some of the frozen treats available at the store? Eeek!)


We ended up trying the Triple Chocolate Chip Bars. Now returning readers know I love me some chocolate (I have hidden stashes LOL), so when I say these are almost chocolate overload, I mean it. If you can eat more than one, your sweet tooth must be way better than mine! lol I barely managed to eat one, it was chocolate-ly delight. Those dark chocolate chips just made it perfect. Next time we buy these, I think I am going to try the Chocolate Covered Strawberry and see what those taste like!

Right now if you visit Breyers website, they have an instant win sweepstakes going on, where you can win prizes, including a $10,000 grand prize! And I noticed they have a section with some great recipes using ice cream. (Go check out the awesome Day At the Beach Ice Cream Cake!)

Win it! Thanks to Mom Central, I have a giveaway of my own! Two lucky readers will each win two coupons for free Breyers Smooth And Dreamy products! To enter, visit the Breyers website and tell us which variety you'd try first.

As always, you can receive extra entries for:

-Subscribing to my feed or following my blog

That's four (4) possible entries! Giveaway ends August 14th at 11:59 PM PST, and please leave your email address in your entry or have it available in your profile. US only, sorry :( Good luck everyone!! :)

"I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour campaign by Mom Central on behalf of Breyers and received products necessary to facilitate my review. In addition, I received a gift certificate to thank me for taking the time to participate."
