Lets Scream For Ice Cream!

Did you ever eat something so good that you thought to yourself, "I bet I'm going to hell for this. Something this good has to be a sin?"

Well, I present to you, your one way ticket:

Breyers Gelato Indulgences, Lads and Dames

Thanks to the wonderful people at Breyers and Influenster, I had a chance to taste probably the best thing I've ever tasted in my life. Well, except for tacos. My taste buds dance for tacos. At any rate, my kids get overly excited about the ice cream truck each summer and now mommy gets overly excited about it too. Except while the kids are chasing down Chubby Chasers (no, seriously, that's the name of our ice cream truck), mommy is chasing down the Breyers truck. Now if we could just get a margarita truck...

Influenster sent me a coupon for one of these delicious babies with the statement "To support the launch of Breyers Gelato Indulgences, this campaign will show couples how to create the perfect date night at home--and have a reason to "spoon." Now, I could have planned something great, like shipping the kiddos off to grandma's house and laying pillows and blankets on the floor of our living room while we relax in the dark watching a movie and sharing the ice cream, but realistically, stuff like that doesn't happen in our house. Not that I wouldn't like to, we just rarely get an opportunity for it. 

So I just decided to give it a try as soon as I got home. You know, to make sure it was safe for consumption from hubby later on. This is the Raspberry Cheesecake flavor:


Look at it though! 

The creamy cheesecake flavored gelato is swirled with smooth raspberry sauce and sprinkled with graham cracker. Really the only complaint here is that what's on top is the only graham cracker there is in the entire container. 

I had only intended on eating a spoonful or two to get a taste of it for the review, but truth be told, I actually ended up eating at least half the container. Oops! Don't tell my diet! 

This is the picture that made all my facebook friends hate me.


I look blissed out on ice cream in the picture, but once I realized I ate half the container in one sitting (actually I was standing, watching the hubby work on the deck, while I ate it. He hated me too.) I was less than thrilled. I made sure to throw in some extra crunches and squats during last night workout, just for good measure.

Obviously Raspberry Cheesecake isn't the only flavor. It comes in Vanilla Caramel, Tiramisu, and Triple Chocolate as well.
