I don’t eat a lot of plain ice cream. I prefer ice cream treats instead. Being that Breyers is known for their creamy, flavorful ice cream, and I love ice cream sandwiches, I bought a box of
Breyers Smooth & Dreamy Vanilla Fudge Brownie Sandwiches. I paid more than I wanted to. But I was sure it would be well worth the cost when my family and I enjoyed the sandwiches later. Here is my product review:
Each Breyers Smooth & Dreamy Vanilla Fudge Brownie Sandwich is a healthy serving of light vanilla ice cream that contains pieces of fudge brownie sandwiched between two brownie cookies.

Taste Test and Conclusion
Unfortunately, I won’t buy Breyers Smooth & Dreamy Vanilla Fudge Brownie Sandwiches again.
The ice cream part was delicious. The brownie part tasted funny. They tasted cheap. If you ever bought a package of really inexpensive cookies and, when you bit into one, you noticed an odd flavor, then you know what I mean.
I wanted other opinions, so I didn’t mention my dislike for the Breyers Smooth & Dreamy Vanilla Fudge Brownie Sandwiches to my family. After three more people tried them and gave them a thumbs down, I knew it wasn’t just my taste buds. I’m disappointed that I trusted the Breyers name but this product was just a waste of money.
