Breyer’s Ice Cream and Gelato Ultimate Review: What Are the Best 20 Flavors?

Intro: As a young boy my pappy would serve me a bowl or two (or three) of Breyers every night. Ever since, I’ve been hooked. I hope they do a Guinness Book of World Record for eating most Breyers soon because, boy, I think I might hold it!

As an adult, I eat even more Breyers than I did as a boy (I am bigger now). Eating so much cream wears me out but, luckily, I have wifey to cook me dinner, do the chores, and even help review the ice cream sometimes! Love you wifey.

I decided to put on my cream eatin’ to good use and review the best Breyers ice creams out there. I hope my research brings you wisdom and joy in making future Breyer’s purchases… Without further ado, see below for my top-20.

20. Breyers Raspberry Cheesecake Gelato Review 

There must’ve been a mix-up at the Breyers factory with this one.

I put a spoonful to my mouth and it tasted as if someone had blended the raspberry cheesecake they had left on their counter for several weeks with some rancid cream.

I actually puked on the floor after one spoonful and poor wifey had to clean it up. No thanks!

19. Breyers Triple Chocolate Gelato Review

This one was pretty good, but it was so much chocolate. I think it would’ve been better if it was just double chocolate.

Also, I am just not a fan of gelato. I want that real American stuff. That’s right. Give me some freaking ice cream. This gelato crap is soft just like the French. What’s next, Breyers? You’re going to ask me to dip a baguette into this stuff?

Anyway, it was so much chocolate that I found myself putting skim milk over the stuff to try to dilute some of the overpowering choco. Welp. I thought I was going to have a bowl of ice cream, but instead I ended up with some choco soup!

The soup seemed like it was missing something so I added in some marshmallows and Golden Crisp cereal. Yum yum. Hit the spot.

18. Breyers Reese’s Ice Cream Review 

This one actually wasn’t so bad, but even with the 35% more Reese’s it still wasn’t enough Reese’s.

I love Reese’s.

I busted this one out on a Thursday for the big game. Halfway through, though the bites were creamy and sweet, I realized that there wasn’t enough Reese’s in here.

I shouted up to wifey to go run over to the store and get me some more Reese’s ASAP.

Wifey seemed a little upset (she was watching her girl’s show), but she went and brought back a four packages of the candy.

Plopped that stuff in there. PERFECT ratio.

 

17. Breyers Cherry Vanilla Ice Cream Review

This one brought me back. It was like something Grandma Krung would’ve kept in her freezer and fed to us young’ns while she fixed herself a scotch.

I tasted the succulent cherries just fine (not too tart!), but there wasn’t much vanilla I could detect.

Also, cherries are a fruit. Supposed to be healthy, right? Well, me wifey did some research and she said no no no this cream ain’t healthy at all. I told her to mind her business and go watch her girl’s show, but deep down I knew she was right.

What’s the point of eating fruits if it’s not even healthy for you?? Not great, Breyers.

16. Breyers Peach Ice Cream Review 

What the heck. Another fruit? What’s next, am I going to be making potions and blending smoothies? Am I going to be watching documentaries instead of sports?

I guess this was a little better than the cherry one. Cherries are tart while peaches are sweet which goes better for ice cream.

 

15. Breyers Chocolate Truffle Ice Cream Review

This one was pretty good, but I’m not really sure what a truffle is… Maybe it’s another French thing? Got to be European. Pretty fancy!

I just looked truffle up on Google and there it says that it is literally a “fungus”. What the living heck. Minus points for that one.

Well, I got to say that the Chocolate Fungus flavor (as I now call it) was pretty good. Sweet rich texture was complemented by the hearty chocolate fungus chunks.

Maybe these Frenchmen (and woman) know a thing or two about ice cream after all. Is Breyers French? Just keep that baguette away from me!!

14. Breyers Ice Cream Cake Review 

Wifey’s got an old saying. There are two of the most precious creations that God put on this fine Earth.

One, cake. Two, ice cream. Put ’em together? It’s an ice cream cake miracle. (God do I love that woman).

Praise be to this Breyers offering. I must repent, Lord, for I have emptied an entire canister of sprinkles into this tasty carton. 

 

 

13. Breyers Heath Bar Ice Cream Review

Heath bar is not my favorite candy, but I’ve got a friend named Heath and he is a very solid guy. He came over to watch the Buffalo Bills play with me.

Midway through the game the Bills were down by three touchdowns. I walked into the kitchen and got the ice cream out of the freezer.

Hut, hut, HIKE, I yelled as I walked back into the man cave and threw the carton at Heath. He caught the Heath cream and, boy, if you would’ve seen the smile on his face. Heath with some Heath (where’s my niece at? she could’ve put that one on her Facebook).

The crispy caramel goodness really just made for an average experience, but Heath’s smile wins some points.

12. Breyers Tiramisu Gelato Review 

More of this creamy French stuff, eh? This one was actually my second favorite out of all of the Gelatos.

And, yup, that’s right. I had wifey go to the store and get me a baguette for dipping (just like the French do).

The soft, absorbent bread soaked up the cool, cold cream perfectly. What I tasted was like Dunkin’ Donuts coffee mixed with a pinch of cheddar cheese. It really knocked my socks off. Scrumptious.

I joked with wifey that we’d be moving to Paris now. She didn’t know it was a joke and got excited. I laughed and laughed at that. Wifey, wow, don’t you know they don’t have football in Paris? I’d never.

 

11. Breyers Butter Pecan Ice Cream Review

Pecans add a good crunch to this yummy buttery delight. Got to love some buttery nuts. I thought the butter was so yummy, in fact, that I had to go grab a stick of my own from the fridge to get even more in there. It’s probably bad for my heart or something, but it was just so dang tasty having that extra stick of butter in there.

Nuts are considered to be pretty healthy because they provide you with protein. So, out of the Breyers ice creams, this one is definitely good for those of you who are more health conscious.

Fun fact, pecans are the only nut tree that can grow in North America. You could dig out a few of the nuts from the carton, plant them in your backyard, and bam you’ve got some discount trees.

10. Breyers Butterscotch Blondie Ice Cream Review 

Butterscotch cookies are one of my favorites that ol’ wifey makes. This Breyers doesn’t come close to wifey’s cooking, but it’s still pretty dang good.

I’m not really sure what the “blondie” part means. It’s definitely my favorite color hair on a beautiful woman! Sorry wifey (wifey is amber brunette). I guess, if you put a gun to my head, it is a pretty attractive looking dessert after all.

The butterscotch chunks are expertly balanced in each cool spoonful, and the sweetness isn’t too overwhelming like some other Breyers products.

Pro tip: like the Butter Pecan at #11, you wouldn’t go wrong to add a stick or two of your own butter.

9. Breyers French Vanilla Ice Cream Review

This is just some classic ice cream like my pappy used to eat when watching the news. The vanilla has a nice smoky aftertaste that gears you up for the next bite. And the next bite. And the next bite. And the next bite. So rich and creamy.

Probably is my #1 Breyers cream to eat while smoking a cigar on your porch (or inside in your comfy chair… don’t tell wifey heh heh). 

This is also my favorite one to make into a milkshake.

8. Breyers Vanilla Caramel Gelato Review 

This was my favorite of the gelatos. When you open the box, it’s got these little macaroni-looking things that make you go what the heck, macaroni on pasta? but they are actually flaky and sweet and go nice with the soft cream.

Some other reviewers have given poor scores and said that this Breyers is somehow too buttery. To each their own, but I love me some buttered up cream. Then throw the caramel in there? It’s like having a vanilla Twix in every bite.

Let me break down some economics for you. You can buy two or three Vanilla Twix bars for like $5. Or you can buy one of these Breyers cartons for the same price and it’s like having 20 Vanilla Twix for the same price. You do the math.

 

7. Breyers Coffee Ice Cream Review

I know what you’re thinking. Blech, breakfast for dessert? Who wants to feel like they’re eating some cold coffee after their wifey cooks them a big dinner? And normally I’d agree with you, but hear me out.

This is the perfect excuse to have ice cream in the morning when you first roll out of bed. Think about it. It’s made with 100% real Colombian coffee (see screenshot), so you’re going to get that serious caffeine kick. Plus the coffee flavor goes well with all of your breakfast essentials like Pop Tarts or your favorite cereal.

It’d probably be ranked #16 or #17 if I was judging this solely as an after dinner dessert. But folks. It’s freaking ice cream for breakfast. 8 out of 10 overall for #7.

6. Breyers Strawberry Ice Cream Review 

The natural strawberry option is great for those Breyers fans out there who might be a little more health conscious. It might not be the best tasting cream on the market, but the natural strawberries mean this can be a healthy midday snack! You can get your fruit servings and your dairy servings in one tasty bowl.

Are you a real health nut? I know this might sound a little batty, but I’ve tried adding in vegetables to this strawberry cream to get even more pieces of the food pyramid in. Carrots? OK. Broccoli? Made me gag. Cherry tomatoes? Bingo.

Throw in some cherry tomatoes and you’ve got yourself a big ol’ bowl of yummy health.

Still tastes really delicious just plain!

 

5. Breyers Chocolate Ice Cream Review

You can’t go wrong with the classic chocolate. Made with real cocoa, it’s a strong chocolate but not totally overpowering like some other brands (Haagen Dazs or Dove) can be. This is just a staple to have at least a few cartons of in your freezer at all times, and my favorite time to have it is after one of wifey’s famous meatloaf dinners.

Want a special treat? Pour some milk in a blender (wifey is healthy and likes to use Almond Milk) alongside a few scoops of Chocolate Breyers. Mix that baby up and you’ve got a delicious chocolate shake! 9 out of 10 score here.

4. Breyers Blasts Thin Mint Girl Scouts Ice Cream Review 

This is how I know the good folks at Breyers are geniuses. Girl Scouts. Breyers. Yes, yes, and YES. This is like the Jay-Z and Beyonce of ice cream couples, and it will go down in my household as one of the best combos of all time.

The Thin Mints version comes in at #4 overall, and it will probably be even higher on some of your personal lists if you’re a fan of mint. There’s some crunchy minty goodness in almost every bite. There’s also nice fudge swirls as well that are a nice touch. It just looks pretty, someone should post it on Instagram.

This is almost a 10 out of 10 for me. Me and wifey can and have eaten three or four cartons of this stuff in one sitting. So good.

 

3. Breyers Blasts Samoas Girl Scouts Ice Cream Review

What’s better than combining Breyers with Thin Mints (the second best Girl Scouts cookie)? Combining it with Samoas (the #1 best Girls Scouts cookie). This cream is very similar to #4 with chocolate swirls, but instead of mint it’s the best caramel and coconut cookie combo on this here planet Earth.

It’s a chewy, creamy delight. Remember how I said that wifey and I ate three or four cartons of the Thin Mint Blasts in one sitting? Well… When we’re talking Samoas Blasts we could very well eat five or six or, if we skip dinner, eight carton of this stuff in one night. It’s that good. We definitely will pay for it on the toilet later, but it’s a price we both agreed that we’re willing to pay.

Thank you Girl Scouts and Breyers for your service to our house, our community, and our planet. Your sweet caramel cookie ice cream is the eighth of this here world.

2. Breyers Waffle Cone Ice Cream Review 

Waffle cone with chocolatey chips is the number two Breyers ice cream on the list. It’d probably be more like #6 or #7 for me, but my cousin Small Shawn told me he’d come over and hurt me if it wasn’t in the top-3 (Small Shawn is actually pretty crazy so I put it here… Shawn, if you’re reading this, I still think you’re a great guy and not that crazy).

This is still a pretty great ice cream. I’ve seen some reviewers say that it has consistency like whipped cream as if this were a bad thing. What. You’re telling me I can have a bowl of whipped cream with some waffle bits and a caramel swirl to top it off? Tell me that’s not a good sweet treat. Tell Shawn too. Might be your last words.

 

1a. Breyers Oreo Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Review

As good as Girl Scout Cookies are they can’t unseat the king of cookies: Oreo.

Full transparency: my household might be a little biased. We eat about 2 or 3 packages of Oreos per week already. It just feels like such a natural fit to mix it into our favorite ice cream, Breyers.

Cookies & cream is already one of the best flavors of ice cream in general. This is now the best cookie combined with the best ice cream at our grocery store. It’s just got to be #1.

Each bite is perfectly balanced. It’s always the right ratio of cookie to cream. Vanilla cream with an aftertaste of chocolate Oreo. It’s almost scary how well the Breyers food scientists put this one together.

Breyers better be careful or they’re going to get their employees arrested for making something so dang addicting (that’s a joke btw… I don’t really want anyone to go to jail!).

1b. Breyers Snickers Ice Cream Review 

Alright, I cheated. I have two #1s. Both of these creams are so dang good that I had to do it. Snickers is the Oreos of candy bars. That is, the best.

Caramel, nut, more caramel, nougat, chocolate. C’mon. These are the perfect ingredients for an ice cream flavor. The Greek God of Desserts dreamt this thing up. Every bite reminds me why I’m happy to be alive.

Eat candy. Eat ice cream. Eat them both at once. For breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Seriously. Wifey and I at this for breakfast, lunch, and dinner recently because we like it that much. And you know what? We still felt pretty good while watching Friends at the end of the night.

It’s the #1 ice cream (tied with Oreo). Period. Nothing to “snicker” at.
