Indulging in Indulgences

I was recently able to take some time off and escape to Florida for a few days. After a rough winter, a beach vacation with good friends, cocktails and delicious food was just what I needed.
While on vacation we received a special delivery of Breyers Gelato Indulgences. The package included all four of Breyer's new Gelato Indulgences flavors; Vanilla Caramel, Rasberry Cheesecake, Tiramisu and Triple Chocolate.
With six days of vacation I was able to spend qaulity time with each of these flavors. All of the Breyers Gelato Indulgences are rich and creamy but the texture is light as if it's whipped. Each flavor looks like it's hand crafted since there seems to be a personal touch to all of the flavors, like the chocolate shavings on top of the Triple Chocolate or the crumbled graham cracker on the Rasberry Cheesecake. The first thing I did was take a little spoonful of the Rasberry Cheesechake with a little graham cracker topping...The rasberry swirl had a delicious tartness that was perfectly balanced with the creamy cheescake flavored ice cream. The graham cracker topping has a nice texture. Whether it's an actual cheescake or this Gelato, I always want more graham cracker! The triple chocolate is rich but not too heavy. You can distinctly taste the difference between the dark chocolate and milk chocolate. The white chocolate swirl and chocolate shavings bring this flavor to a whole new level.
I was wary of the of the tirimisu because although the ingredients (delicate mascarpone gelato, decadent espresso sauce, ladyfinger cookie pieces and gourmet cocoa) sounded delicious I thought it was going to be too much. Luckily I was completely wrong. This tirimusu gelato let me feel like I was on vacation. Looking out over the ocean while having a bowl full of tirimisu gelato was heavenly. The tirimisu gelato felt as if each layer of the delicious tirimisu dessert was in every bite of this gelato. The Vanilla Caramel was also surprisingly not as rich as I thought it would be and perfectly creamy and flavorful.
I was incredibly lucky to be able to take this trip and to have the opportunity to try all of these new delicious flavors. Whether you're on the beach in florida or you need to put your feet up after a long week of work I would definitely suggest trying the new Breyers Gelato Indulgences.
Thank you to my special friends at Unilever for sending me this wonderful treat!

Over the last several months I have been counting the days until the warmer weather will arrive and lift my spirits. This winter has been a never-ending series of extremely cold days and snowstorms. Now that the warmer weather has arrived I have been craving ice cream. That’s how I know that summer is right around the corner. The weather gets warm and I crave ice cream. I was recently walking down the aisle of my local grocery store and came across the Breyer’s Indulgences and decided to give them a try. They were delightful. I have had the vanilla caramel and the triple chocolate and enjoyed both equally. I am looking forward to “indulging” (pun intended) in the raspberry cheesecake and the tiramisu in the near future. I agree with you that these are light and delicious. After reading your blog I will definitely try the tiramisu next.
