Scoop 25: Breyer’s Very Chocolate Cherry

by Ice Cream Maker Reviews on June 20, 2006

I’ll be honest here. When something is called “Very Chocolate Cherry” I expect it to be “very chocolate” with some cherry; not very cherry with a little chocolate. But that’s what this is: very very cherry. If you like cherry flavored things, than this is for you. If you don’t stay away. Personally, I love Ben and Jerry’s Cherry Garcia. It was the first ice cream I ate when I came home from Ireland. Why? Because it’s practically one of my comfort foods. However, I don’t like all cherry flavored things, say Cherry Runts. Not a fan. Regardless, I could have gone either way with the cherry part of Breyer’s Very Chocolate Cherry. Well, turns out I didn’t like this cherry. I don’t know what it was about it, maybe it tasted too much like real cherries to me. It was intense. It was also smooth and the chocolate chunks weren’t too bad. But, I didn’t like it. It might be good in an ice cream sundae or maybe in a malt, but not on it’s own.

I have been a Breyers ice cream fan since the mid forties. This week we purchased a container of All Natural Butter Pecan.
It was terrible! The vanilla ice cream was gritty (not with vanilla beans, more like sawdust) and the few pecans present were stale and mushy. WHAT HAS HAPPENED?

We love peach ice cream and just purchased a container of Breyers Peach.
It was very icey, had a faint flavor of peach and the presance of a peach morsel was rare. What a dissapointment!

I have been a fan of Breyers a long time but that changed today.
Big disapointment when I purchased the new Banana Split.
It went in the trash!

Swore by Breyers Ice Cream since I was a little kid growing up in a Phila. suburb. Strawberry was always my big favorite, but that was then, this is now. THERE WAS NOT ONE STRAWBERRY IN THE LAST THREE GALLONS THAT I BOUGHT!!! This included 2 gallons of Strawberry and one Vanil, chocolate and Strawberry. If it wasn’t for the artifical coloring, You’d fave to guess the flavor. Funny, it shows Strawberries on the box, but not in the finished product. I guess I’ll need to find an honest company from now on!
