R.I.P Breyers Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream!!!
Sat, 05/20/06 9:40 PM
So, I bought some Breyers mint chocolate chip ice cream the other day, like I have since I was a kid. I have always depended on the quality and flavor of Breyers ice cream.
But, I immediately noticed a change in the taste. Upon a closer look, I noted that they are now using “chocolate flavor chips” instead of real chocolate! They are now using what I call "chocolate flavored wax"!! They used to use a good quality REAL chocolate. Why change a classic flavor like that? I would pay more for real chocolate to have the same quality. Breyers has sold out. They were bought out by Unilver, as was Ben&Jerry’s and both brands have reflected that in the quality of their products. I am very mad about this, and I encourage all to write to them about this. Here is a link to share your thoughts to Unilever: http://www.icecreamusa.com/talk/comment.asp
I have made my own mint chocolate chip ice cream from scratch before, and I guess I will again.
I will never buy Breyers again.
