Review: Breyers Blasts! Mrs. Fields Chocolate Fudge Brownie Frozen Dairy Dessert

I've got to admit that I'm enjoying reviewing all of these Breyers Blasts! frozen dairy desserts.  It's not because I think all of them are good, but I certainly appreciate what Breyers is trying to do with them.  They are making a dessert for guys like me...meaning guys that love their ice cream-like desserts with a whole bunch of add-ins.  Ice cream (and frozen dairy dessert alone) is fine, but give me some stuff to crunch on or chew my way through and you've at least got a plan to make me happy because it all comes down to the execution after that.  So, another sale led me to pick up another 1.5 quart container of this Breyers Blasts! Mrs. Fields Chocolate Fudge Brownie Frozen Dairy Dessert at Meijer for $2.99.  Each container has twelve half-cup servings and each serving comes in at a reasonable 140 calories per serving.

Breyers describes this container of frozen dairy dessert as having "Mrs. Fields® Chocolate Fudge Brownie pieces with a Fudge Swirl in a Chocolate Frozen Dairy Dessert" and I can in fact confirm that all of those things were present.  The frozen dairy dessert itself actually smelled like chocolate and that was a nice change of pace because one of my complaint of frozen ice cream-like desserts is the repeated failure of the chocolate to taste or smell anything like chocolate itself.  On that particular front, Breyers succeeded.  The rest of the container was filled with a healthy, although not plentiful amount of fudge and chocolate brownies, so they did not skimp on the add-ins and being that this is from the Blasts! product line, I would certainly expect that they would not do so.

In terms of taste, I can't say there was anything spectacular about this, but that does not mean it was not good.  In fact, I would say that this was quite good and it was because the frozen dairy dessert legitimately tasted like rich chocolate, albeit in a slightly thinner version because it was indeed frozen dairy dessert.  I was so impressed by the fact that it actually tasted like chocolate that I would have been willing to look past everything else in the container, but thankfully, I did not have to do that.  The fudge added additional chocolate taste to the container and the chocolate brownies added an alternating soft and somewhat hard chew each time you encountered them (depending on their various states of melting).  All in all, this container was all chocolate, all the time and if you are a choc-o-holic or need a fix, this one would be right up your alley.  The presence of brownies is just something that makes it even better.

Buy It or Fly By It?  I can't say that I expected a lot going into tasting this container, but I was more than pleasantly surprised by how good this was, so I give it a BUY IT rating.  In fact, despite the fact that there was nothing ground breaking about this container in terms of flavor or design, I have to admit that it is one of my favorites in the Blasts! line so far because it delivered on everything it promised.  If you do that, you are generally going to get a good review and this container did that.

Dubba at On Second Scoop was more bored than anything with this flavor in his review.  He didn't find anything wrong with it, but I don't think enjoyed the simplicity and the actually delivery of promises as much as I did.  Still, a great review though, as usual.
