Breyer's Cookies 'n Cream Frozen Dairy Dessert
Yeah, those ice cream traitors over at Breyer's flipped this to a frozen dairy dessert
Now I do love the giant Oreo chunks....
so squishy... almost slimy... very sad. You know, I hate that I don't even have the choice of going with their old recipe. Curse you Breyers, I can't wait until you learn of the foolish thing you've done here. We're you frustrated that I had moved on to Ben & Jerry's and all the other premium ice creams? Is that why your mad? Or is it the new competition from outside sources like Blue Bunny and Turkey Hill? What is it Breyers because you need to knock it off and get back to your old recipes.
after that disappointment, we went back to Edy's
Edy's / Dreyer's Slow Churned Cookies 'n Cream Light Ice Cream
then just when you thought it was over, I picked up some
Turkey Hill Cookies 'n Cream Premium Ice Cream
If only I could appease my daughter yet bring something new into the freezer....
Breyers "New" Grasshopper Pie Ice Cream
I know I can seem like a negative fellow, so let's start with my favorite part: It's cold! Yes, I know it's ice cream, but it's got that kind of mint flavor that freezes up your insides real good. It's just neat. I know it's the same temp as every other ice cream, but it feels 10-15 degrees cooler. Very cool.
I also appreciate the clean taste and lack of gumminess. It's not thick or solid like a super premium, but a straight ice cream is so much better than a rubbery frozen dairy dessert. It's nice to know that somewhere in the bowels of the Breyers factory, they do still know how to make an all natural ice cream. Sure, the overall base could be creamier, it's actually kind of got that frozen milk / mild watery vibe but maybe that's why they call it grasshopper pie and not mint cookies and cream (ahhh, probably not).
My point is that it's nice. It's an easy eating bowl that will have you going "yeah, I think I need a bit more". It's got that clean classic Breyer's taste that I've been missing. It's not perfect and it's no creamy super premium, but it's the kind of crisp flavor that I don't know why we don't have more of. Time to go scoop another bowl!
Grasshopper Pie Verdict? not perfect, but I still like it
