Breyers Blasts! Chocolate Reese's Peanut Butter Cups

[By Nick, debuted in 2012] Since Dubba bashed Breyers yesterday, it's only fitting I bash them today. This is not a dessert you want to be serving to your Valentine tonight. This stuff is awful.

Breyers Blasts! Reese's Chocolate
Chocolate Frozen Dairy Dessert with a Reese's Peanut Butter Swirl
and Reese's Peanut Butter Cups

Okay, I should elaborate why it's awful. While I thought frozen dairy dessert technology was getting better, that's far from the case here. Breyers has managed not only to make this one extra fluffy, it's also tasteless. This is the blandest chocolate base I have ever had.

The only redeemable thing about this container are the mix-ins and there aren't much of them to speak of. They claim the swirl to be Reese's but I honestly can't tell. It just tastes like peanut butter and there's not enough of it to make a real judgement. Most of the time it just tastes like it got mixed into the awful base since I can taste the swirl but not get much texture. There's also reese's cups in the mix but they're few and far between.

TL/DR: Don't buy, you'll be disappointed.

Verdict?  This is why frozen dairy desserts should die
Buy Again?  HAHAHA, no

Still, you have to admit that a frozen dessert with chocolate, peanut butter, and peanut butter cups for just 140 calories per serving is quite impressive.

"This is why frozen dairy desserts should die." - best quote of your life. This is why I've read the blog from the beginning haha

@Stride, not so impressive when it's lacking in flavor and mix-ins. There's a reason why it's so low in calories. What's impressive is just how much I wish I had bought something else.

The calorie count is even lower when you can't even finish a bowl. I"ve given up on them; they bite.

RIP frozen dairy dessert.

I agree, Nick. Sometimes it's better to really indulge in something high in calories and fat that will satisfy rather than settling for lower quality products. This is why I rarely buy from Edy's or Breyer's anymore.

I totally agree with you Stride4unit. I usually only buy Turkey Hill and Friendly's on occasion.

I bought this carton of crap years ago. They left out the peanut butter and the candy LOL. It was a carton of chocolate dust flavored base. Breyers sent me booklet of coupons for the inconvenience.

Tried the chocolate tonight, absolutely no taste and not the equivalent of half a Reese's peanut butter cup in the whole container. Don't buy this !

There was a total of 5 reeces pieces (small chunks..) and all fluff/very faint taste. Risk waste of my money.

LOL!!! Very true review. I recently bought a container of this and was highly disappointed. I usually enjoy candy/swirl ice cream. But this was not only NOT sweet, but also had very little peanut butter flavor and hardly any actual peanut butter cups inside. It was totally lacking in flavor. It was like a non-sweet chocolate ice cream with a VERY SMALL tinge of peanut butter taste. I was left confused and threw away the tub. I didn't even want to GIVE it away to someone else because I knew they wouldn't like it either. As far as actual GOOD candy or swirl ice creams, I recommend the Snickers' ice cream, Twix ice cream, and Oreo ice cream instead.

Just tried this tonight. We obviously didn't know what we were buying. I agree the base chocolate fluff is lame. Additionally, hardly any peanut butter and not very flavorful. I didn't find any actual reese's candies in there at all. What I did find was large hard chunks of the lowest quality chunk chocolate. The wax content of these "chocolate pieces" was so high, I think the most accurate descriptive is chocolatish flavored wax! Reese's aren't the highest quality candies but they are flights above this crud. If I was Reese's I'd sue them for sullying the good Reese's name.
