Breyers Triple Chocolate Ice Cream Review

 2013 Update: Not sure when it happened, but this one is retired

To be honest, I'm not quite sure how I've managed to walk by Breyers Triple Chocolate ice cream 30 times without trying it. I guess I was afraid it just wouldn't be that good. You know, the "white chocolate" would be vanilla, the dark chocolate would taste cheap, and the milk chocolate would be the same chocolate we always get. Well, I was trying to grab something quick Saturday afternoon, and my chocolate cravings told me it was time to give in and see if the ice cream tastes as good as it looks.

I couldn't resist and my spoon immediately went for the white chocolate. Guess what? It tastes like white chocolate! It tastes like any decent white chocolate bar would, or a nice quality pudding pop. The milk chocolate is good, though it makes me long for TH Box of Chocolates. I was messing around and cut out a slab of the dark chocolate and it definitely has a fudgy look to it (oh man, I just made myself hungry for brownies). The dark chocolate is pretty good as well, though the brownie thoughts made me forget what it tastes like.

One of the most interesting thinks I find about this flavor is how creamy it is. Maybe the freezer is on the fritz ...or maybe they've done something special to make this extra creamy. I'm not sure, but I like it. Overall, it's good. The secret is bringing yourself back to reality before trying it. It's not fantastic, it's not mind numbing (well, unless you eat too much), it's just a quality product with a respectable taste (and tastes even better with fresh whip cream!)

I agree that Breyers Triple chocolate ice cream is really good. However, I am hooked on Blue Bell Triple Chocolate Ice Cream. It is the best by far. Rich and hearty, unbelievably delicious. I was amazed by how good it was. Trouble is Blue Bell's ice cream is seasonal and only available during certain times of the year. Too bad because I will be buying Breyers Triple chocolate instead when I can't get the Blue Bell, Blue Bell stop this 3 month nonsense already.
