If I’m splurging on ice cream, then I’m probably already emotional. The last thing I want is to be humbled by big words on an ice cream carton. Who needs that?
So, to keep what little sanity I have left, I am a fan of ice cream that lists pronounceable ingredients—such as the Breyers brand. The full-fat variety of ice cream is usually my vice, but yesterday I was feeling frisky. I grabbed a carton of fat-free vanilla and didn’t look back.
How’d Breyers Fat Free Ice Cream taste? Well, the ice cream was so frozen solid, even a heated scooper couldn’t dig much into it. (And let me tell you, Food Meister tried very hard!)
What gives? The outside of the Breyers Fat Free Ice Cream carton looked fine at the supermarket. No frost whatsoever. But inside, it’s iceberg city. Major disappoint.
What little I did taste of Breyers Fat Free Ice Cream wasn’t bad. A little icy, but the vanilla flavor was pleasant enough. If it hadn’t been so darn rock hard, I’d actually buy it again. Maybe I’ll try buying a carton from a different supermarket to see if there’s a difference. A little iciness around the edges is not such a bad tradeoff for less fat and calories.
Try Breyers Fat Free Ice Cream if you dare; you’ve been warned about the potential hardness problem.
