Perfect Summer Treat!

I recently tried the new 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.

Ya’ll, it is yummy!

It’s creamy chocolate with chunks of REESE’S peanut butter cup inside it!

REESE’S peanut butter cups have always been good to me, but I’ve tried not to eat them too often because it’s something I could eat tons of.†

The product is sweet, but not too sweet, although it is pretty rich! I like how it’s ‘blasted’ with chunks throughout. So, it’s kind of exciting when you get one. :)

Brent also really enjoyed it. I’m always nudging him to take a bite of things and sometimes he obliges and sometimes he doesn’t, but as soon as he saw the REESE’S on the container, he agreed to a nice-sized bite! He then said, It actually has chunks of peanut butter cup in it! I explained that that’s the “blast” part. 😉

It was easy to scoop out just with my spoon. Honestly, I’m not a huge fan of ice cream scoops because really, it’s just creating more dirty dishes, so I was glad I didn’t have to struggle to get this stuff out of the container.

I will use a scoop when scooping for others, though! I think it’s a nice treat to have when entertaining. It’s not something you can just leave sitting out, so when people are over, it’s kind of a fun surprise to whip out, especially if they aren’t expecting it. I will also admit that sometimes I forget to pull it out while we are entertaining. That leaves me with quite a bit once people go home!

This summer, I want to make an effort to have fun with frozen treats, and of course, once the babies are older, I know this won’t be an issue. I know Knox & Sloane can’t wait until they are old enough to eat them! :)

For now, they have lots of friends who are a bit older that I know will enjoy these treats!

I’m really itching to try the Breyers Blasts! OREO Birthday Blast! This one has OREO cookie pieces and rainbow sprinkles in artificially flavored cake-flavored frozen dairy dessert. It’s not in any stores in my area, but I’m really hoping it will be soon. :) I think I even saw a SNICKERS Bar Blast that I may pick up the next time we have people over.

What I want to know is, how would you and your family enjoy Breyers Blasts!? Do you eat it after dinner for a treat? Do you have it at parties?

    Yum! My husband and my daughter NEED to have dessert almost everyday after dinner and during this pregnancy it seems like I've been joining them more. We would enjoy this so much!

  2. says

    I keep a little girl who will be turning 2 in August. We use ice cream for a treat after supper when we have a really good day potty training! It works real well, especially on these hot days we have been having!

    This summer my older son & husband have really enjoyed getting ice cream together. :) I am sure they would love this! I am dairy free this summer while nursing my younger son that has a dairy allergy. Next year I'll be able to indulge in the nice desserts of summer!

    Ice cream is best enjoyed during the summe,r after dinner on the screened in porch, watching the lightning bugs come out at dusk!

  5. says

    Me and my hubby love to eat ice cream at night in front of the tv after our baby boy goes to bed :) he LOVES snickers bars so I am going to look for this ice cream next time I grocery shop

  6. says

    My 17 year old is a Reese's Girl, she gets so excited when I surprise her with a pack. This treat would definitely be another addition to her teenage "gettys" this summer. You see, I am the COOL mom, because I let everyone come here and watch movies and feed them. They still don't get that I am the OVERPROTECTIVE mom, but that is ok, I will take it anyway I can get it!

    Reece's are my favorite candy, but I haven't tried this yet! We usually eat ice cream for dessert, esp. when it's 100°+!;) My kids favorite thing to do is [ick out their very favorite flavor to eat with their birthday cake…it's the only time of the year that they can have whatever they want and no one gets to complain or "vote" on what to get!;)

    Just a note, you use to have the buttons for twitter, FB, email, and blogging on your posts. It made it easier to retweet or repost. Just a suggestion, I know because someone recently asked me to add them to my blog and I can see the difference in comments.

    Much Love!

    Ice cream is my favorite and anything that combines chocolate and peanut butter is a winner to me. My husband and I have it after dinner, although if I could without him making fun of me, I would have it for breakfast. I am totally addicted!

  10. says

    We eat ice cream as an after dinner treat! I ALWAYS want chocolate with extra chocolate somethings, so the Reese's Peanut Butter Cups would be yummy.

  11. says

    Breyer's Ice Cream is one of my favorite deserts I have tried the Breyers Blasts! OREO Birthday Blast. It is so good. I am on my second carton. I going to get the Reeces's one next. My son is a Reece's Peanut Butter Cup lover.

  12. says

    I have honestly never thought of serving icecream while entertaining guest, it's always something my husband and I have after dinner, usuall with dinner parites, I think "cakes, etc", but this does sound like a nice treat, and Reeses are my favorite! I would probably end up eating the whole container…..the only downfall, lol!

  13. says

    Ice cream is my greatest weakness – I can eat it anytime but my little guy really loves it in cones on a hot day, dripping down his hands, face, arms, shirt… LOL!

  14. says

    We eat ice cream as a late night snack most times…but it's also great in the summer (like right now, when it's crazy hot) to make ice cream cones (something we rarely do) and let the kids sit outside and eat it after coming home from the playground. Great way to cool down :) And my littles love peanut butter!!

  15. says

    Ice cream is a special treat in our house! This ice cream is perfect because one of my boys loves reese's and the other loves oreos! So excited to see these cool flavors and can't wait to try it with my family as an after dinner treat :) thanks for the chance to win.

  16. says

    after dinner treat for sure, but I am planning a late August birthday party for when my son turns two, and this sounds like a PERFECT treat for our swim party!!!

    I would take Breyers Blast to my grandmother’s place & share it with her. She recently moved into a senior center and she says the food is blah and misses the simple treats of life. She misses her house and being able to go on the back deck & just relax. I would take a bowl of Breyers Blast with two spoons, we would go on the patio, in the comfy chairs wrap up in a blanket sharing stores/catching up, snacking away watching the sun set. It still gets chill at night but its how we share our love language with eachother. Treats, stories & a break from reality

  18. says

    I read your posts all the time. Your babies are adorable!!! My girls would love this ice cream. If it was up to them they would want to eat it all the time. I've got to see if it's in stores in our area.

  19. says

    We always enjoy our ice cream as an evening snack in the summer! It is so fun to cool down after playing outside with some frozen yumminess!!

  20. says

    Oooh! Breyers Blasts sounds so yummy! I'll definitely be on the lookout next time I grocery shop. We are potty training, so if Emma gets enough potty stickers, she gets a treat. Breyers blasts sounds like the PERFECT treat!

  21. says

    I love a cup of ice cream after dinner! Am going to the store later today and will have to check out the Snickers Blast. That sounds yummy!

  22. says

    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!

    We would enjoy this after a sunny day at the spray park….probably eating it outside on the back swing.,…or as a dessert or at parties or or or

  24. says

    I'm pretty sure I would just take a spoon to it, ha! Not very ladylike but I can't be trusted around the chocolate/peanut butter combo :)

  25. says

    we love it as a treat after eating dinner full of veggies! Thanks for a super giveaway!

    I would eat it anytime, most while watching shows and playing games. Thanks for the review and giveaway.

    My family and I would enjoy Breyers Blasts with different toppings after dinner and sit in front of the TV in our family room. We love Breyers ice cream, we’ve been eating it for years. Thanks for this giveaway.

    Mmmmmmm Reese's! Practically drooling over here. 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!

  29. says

    My husband was very excited when I brought home 2 of the Breyers Blast. Not sure which one we liked best — they were both soooo good. Reese's and Oreo. Its our late night indulgence .

  30. says

    I love ice cream in the summer and our freezer broke this weekend- our whole freezer/fridge is going to have to be replenished, this would be a great treat at the end! :)

  31. says

    I have 5 kids who all love ice cream! On Sunday nights in the Summer we have ice cream parties! Each child gets a turn to pick the flavor of the party! I know all of my kiddos would LOVE Oreo Birthday Cake Blast!

  32. says

    For me the late night talk shows are the equivalent of 'Pavlov's Bell'. The minute I see or hear Craig Ferguson, I run to the kitchen and grab the ice cream and hop on the couch! It's my favorite me time next to a long hot bath! :)

  33. says

    We would def have it after dinner as a treat! Would be especially tasty after a veggie dog and corn on the cob dinner! Soo summery! LOL

    I keep ice cream in the freezer almost all the time. My only problem is trying to keep it for more than a day or two. I have a serious weakness for ice cream any time of the day.

    I'd serve Breyer Blasts on a waffle with whipped cream. We'd serve it after dinner in the summer.
