I just received my breyers package in the mail. ChickAdvisor has certainly outdone itself this time! The packaging was gorgeous, they sent three cute white bowls and three long ikea ice cream spoons to taste it all :) I can't wait till hubby gets home so I can go and buy the ice cream! Thanks ChickAdvisor :D I have a feeling they'll all get tried tonight ;) My excuse - I'm pregnant and crave ice cream all the time!

That was the brilliance of Breyers and their PR crew at Harbinger :)
Hope you enjoy them all!

I got mine this morning, and immediately posted it to my blog. Very, very impressed. I actually thought ...well, I thought they were sending little pints in the mail with like dry ice or something (naively so, hahah). I was uberly surprised when I actually opened the box. Bowls and spoons, it was awesome. I went a couple of minutes ago to pick them up at the grocery store, and everyone just starred like "How?" Haha. I was like ChickAdvisor.com! Lol, it was funny.
Do we put the review here?
|It won't allow me to add my review, I keep getting an error thingy on Jun 08, 2009 @ 06:13 pm|
OKay, I totally just freaked out for a second there, I had completely finished my review and then it gave me an error message, ahah.
Ugh, okay so I loooooved the packaging that the sharing kit arrived at my home it. They sent 3 bowls and beautiful spoons, I was very, very, very impressed.
Me and the gang just finished testing the 3 flavors I chose: this one, Maple Walnut, and Chocolate Cheesecake. Believe it or not I'm still waiting on my chicken breast (we're having a barbeque and testing the flavors, haha).
Anyway though, the things I loved:
1) I LOVED the fact that it wasn't overly sweet. Especially for a person like me who can't take a whole lot of sweets in one sitting and someone like my aunt who has Type 2 Diabetes, she had one or two small scoops and she was good. I don't know if they did that purposely or if it was just something that happened, but I like it.
2) I LOVED the fact that it wasn't... okay well, you know how you can tell from your lips when an ice cream is fatty and heavy? I never got that with this ice cream, it was perfectly light and airy. It just sort of added to the decadence of the flavour, I appreciated that a lot.
3) I LOVED the flavor itself, like it was intense. For all of those hard core chocoholics out there, it'll haunt your dreams and it will be the source of your midnight cravings. Ladies this is serious break-up ice cream going on here, haha. I'm a newly converted chocolate lover, I don't know where it came from but I've had like these huge cravings for some chocolate.
Things that a few of us didn't like was that the chocolate flavor was so intense that like for my friend Emma, she likes chocolate but she's not hardcore or anything and she said "It's almost bitter, it's so chocolatey". I can understand where she'd get that completely, like it could almost be a turn off.
I gave it the half rating, taking everyone that tried it into consideration.
|review it here on Jun 08, 2009 @ 08:16 pm|
Do a search for Breyers and you'll see where to do the review! There you can rate and even add a pic.
|still waiting... on Jun 09, 2009 @ 12:24 am|
...mind you, I live far away! I will keep an eye out for the package, good to know others have started to get the package in the mail! :o)
|USA? on Jun 09, 2009 @ 07:06 am|
I'm curious, has Breyers released these flavors in the States or is it just in Cananda? I haven't actively looked for the flavors, but I've not noticed them either.
|free ice cream?? on Jun 09, 2009 @ 09:53 am|
I just joined and if I'm reading this right Breyers is sending free ice cream??
Please spill the details and let me know how I can get some! Thanks :)

misseverything89 - I'm going to email you about the problems you are having adding the reviews, but the ice cream flavours you are supposed to get as part of this Product Review Club are only Dark Chocolate Velvet, Banana Cream Pie and Chocolate Cheesecake.
Please everyone else, only pick up those three cartons. Also, reviews need to be added separately for each ice cream and are to be added by clicking "add a review". If you have any problems, please contact me via the contact us link at the bottom of the website.
Spotty - Unfortunately, no these flavours are not currently available in the USA.
Sweet_tooth - This particular product review club offer has already been selected (i.e we aren't choosing any more reviewers). You can read more about our Product Review Club and how to join here.
I hope this clarifies for everyone. If anyone else has any more questions or concerns, please let me know :)
|Yay Ice Cream! on Jun 10, 2009 @ 01:31 am|
I got my package in the mail today! The set they sent is so cute. :)
Going out to look for the ice cream on Thursday...I really hope my local Loblaws carries the new flavours.
|Got it! on Jun 10, 2009 @ 08:38 am|
Package arrived yesterday! Just in time too... we are having a brithday party BBQ for my brother and my sister (born on the same day, five years apart) this Friday! The Ice Cream will come in very handy! And I can get some opinions from other people for my review!
Thanks Product Review Club!
