Breyer's Black Raspberry Chocolate
An Ice Cream Review

2012 Update: Like so many other quality Breyers flavors, this one has been demoted to a frozen dairy dessert. I never liked this one, so I much rather would have seen them retire it.

Besides Cookies & Cream in the fridge, we also have Breyer's Black Raspberry Chocolate ice cream. While my wife may endorse this flavor, I'm afraid I can not. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy a nice Black Raspberry (Friendly's makes a fine one), I just don't enjoy Breyer's take on it. It's a very mild Black Raspberry, but it's swirled with this hideous raspberry syrup and small chips of chocolate. To me, the syrup doesn't even smell good, let alone taste good. Maybe it's the beet juice, but I assume that's for coloring, not for flavoring (or odor). So back in the freezer it goes, spoons down on this one!

I agree. The Breyer's black raspberry chocolate chip is horrible. I bought a half gallon, had one bowl, and am about to trash the rest of the carton. The texture is very suspicious to me... and it is no wonder: The second ingredient is corn syrup. Ick!
