    a bit too sweet for me

    This ice cream has a vanilla base but contains caramel like syrup and small chunks of pie crust to mimic a classic butter tart. I like the innovation behind this idea and tasting it definitely reminds me of a butter tart. The caramel swirl is quite rich and has a strong caramel flavour. However, I do find the flavour is a bit too sweet for my liking. I would prefer a less sugar option, still same flavour, just less sugar. The vanilla base is very creamy and nice, not too overpowering. The pie crust like crumbs gives the ice cream a good texture and I enjoyed it. It is very cool that the flavour is inspired by Ontario! If there was a less sugar option, I would purchase again.

    For tart fans

    I was chosen by #chickadvisor, #thisisbutterly and #breyerscanadiendesserts to try one of their ice creams for free.
    I got the Breyers Canadian Desserts Butter Tart flavor to try and it was easy to find in the store. We all love ice cream and we love to try new flavors and brands. We all tried this new flavor for the first time and found it to be rich and creamy in texture and taste. Felt a little bit of caramel kind of taste in the ice cream which was nice. There are chunks of butter tarts in the ice cream which were not upto our liking. They are actual pieces of butter tart and did not taste like fresh tarts as they are in frozen form. Tasted kind of chalky similar to uncooked flour. My kids removed the bits of butter tart and enjoyed the rest of the ice cream happily. I'm not sure if I'll be buying this again since we are not huge butter tart fans. I'm happy that we got to try this new flavor though.

    good but could be better!

    i looove butter tarts and honestly expected more from this ice cream! its essentially broken tart pieces and swirls of caramel. the tart pieces are kind of dry and tasteless, like they are undercooked and too white. the caramel is a regular caramel swirl not necessarily the caramel taste you would get from a buttertart. i think this icecream would be much better if there were actual broken up buttertarts in it, so you get the shell with the caramel all in 1 bite not just a bite of vanilla icecream with a dry hard empty chunk of tart. overall great idea for a flavor and i would try again if they change it as it has potential to be really good

    Pastry chunks are a pass

    The butter flavour in this ice-cream is present, however, the caramel syrup just makes this dessert too sweet. Thr flavouring was not unique. The butter tart flavour can easily be passed off as a butterscotch sundae flavour. I didn't like the addition of the pastry chunks. I found that the doughy texture of the pastry didn't really work with the solid-liquid nature of the ice-cream. I would not pay retail price for this dessert as I found the flavour did not suit my taste and it was overall an overpriced ice-cream.

    So excited to try this!

    i was very very excited to try this product. it is SUCH a great idea. i loved the vanilla cream taste and the loads of caramel. i was not happy with the pastry-style squares. i would have preferred a more tart-rustic-style pastry mixed in as well as a deeper sugar flavour and maybe some raisins or pecans ( they are Canadian tarts after all..) mixed in. i did like it, i didnt LOVE it.

    Great idea, why add soy?

    I was so excited to try this. I really love Butter Tarts and I loved that these were based on Canadian desserts. Unfortunately this ice cream has Soy in it. I'm very allergic to Soy bean and Soy bean oil and for some reason they decided to add in this. Very disappointed as there isn't any need to add soy to this.

    Fell a bit flat...

    My family and I were super excited to try out this new flavour in exchange for our honest review but we found that it fell a bit flat.
    The flavour is "Buttertart" and what we were expecting was a buttertart flavour, you know... like what you would find in a buttertart (the sauce?) To me, it tastes like regular vanilla ice cream with caramel sauce and plain pie/tart pieces.
    The description is vanilla light ice cream with a caramel swirl and pastry pieces. The crust/tart pieces were a little bland. Should have been infused with the buttertart flavour maybe (or I guess caramel?)
    But the crust pieces stayed nice and crunchy, they weren't soggy which was I was happy about.
    We have this a rating of
    6/10  - considering it was just vanilla ice cream with caramel sauce and plain crust pieces.
    Probably wouldn't buy again, but we will definitely be checking out the other flavours if they go on sale (this was $6.99 regular price)

    Too sweet for me

    I should've known before I opened it that it would have a lot of caramel in it. It was too sweet for me but I did enjoy the mini tart pieces! I wish there were more of them though.
