Breyers Ice Cream / Terrible experience

1 United States Review updated:
Contact information:

Breyers Ice Cream executives can't add because 1.5L is not 1/2 gallon... 1.89L is 1/2 gallon. So they are screwing the consumer out of honest value for the money, just like the oil companies! I won't buy this product if they give it to me free of charge... they lost a good customer... they can stick this on their profit margins... ###s!... and its only ice cream! You simply can't expect that no one will notice and that your competitors are not going to make a better product and hold the line on pricing!

    Not to mention, the Tara Gum they decided to add, makes the ice cream taste like the other cheap brands. Why should I buy Breyer's, when the other brand is cheaper and contains the ### gums Breyer's has chosen to add? We bought Breyer's because it was REAL ice cream.

    I just bought a contanier of Breyer's last night and now, I wanna eat some and it is frozen like a brick and it cut my fingers trying to get some out. I go to take a bite, the texture is like there is sand pieces everywhere, and it doesn't melt, like it would if it was ice. And it also tastes like cardboard. I am very disappointed. I wasted good money on name-brand ice cream, for a crappy product. I could have spent a lot less for a way better product. I'm never going with them again.

    This fairly new sand recipe sucks!!! I hate the texture!!! Where on Earth did Breyers get the idea that sand is fun to eat? Breyers has managed to 'fix something that wasn't broken' and thus destroying a good product. Share holders will lose alot of money on this because word is quickly getting around, and Breyers cannot keep up with their competetors in my area, Breyers should really make some corporate level changes starting from the top, this decision was a top level decision and those responsible should answer for this foul up. I suggest that Breyers fix this problem before they lose more consumers, I was a loyal customer, but now, I will never buy Breyers again unless the fix this problem and announce it, on the other hand, if Breyers sticks with this new horrible textured ice cream, they should rather call it Breyers Sand cream,

    Ha I agree, I thought it also tasted like butter though when you think of it, its "Cookies and Cream" and when you think of it as a Cream taste it makes it fine. Thanks for posting, I thought something was wrong it was nice to see that I wasnt alone.

    i am so tired of Breyer’s giving me excuses about why, upon opening, their ice cream containers are NOT FILLED. I call their customer service number each time, and get various excuses – today to be told that the containers are “filled by weight – 48 ounces” — yet i find that some are filled all the way to the top – and others have huge gaps of space – 1″ deep – and 1/2″ to 1″ wide.

    I have never had this issue with Edys’ – just Breyer’s

    We bought some Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough last night and each had a cone of it. It was hard to put in the cone, because it wouldn't mold and was powdery/sandy like. Tasted kind of weird. Now we have bad stomach aches/diareah/bloating and totally feel like crap. Had to be from the ice cream cause that was the only different thing we both ate. Never will purchase this again. Funny how you can't find any kind of contact information on their site... gotta get the number off the container. Definatley will be calling them asap.

    Why can't we buy Breyers Ice Cream in chain stores like Price Choppers, Food Basic's and Solbeys.These chains stock all of the other brands of other companies.we live here in Toronto Canada.

    For years I have refrained from buying Breyers because the package kept shrinking as the price continued to rise. Last night I had a coupon and it was on sale at Kroger, so I treated myself. OMG! What have they done to the formula? It used to be sugar, milk and cream. It now contains all the guar gum, high fructose corn syrup and the other garbage that ther cheap brands have and the texture is SLIMEY. Now I notice that it is no longer ice cream, it is "Frozen Dairy Dessert". Striking get another major brand off my list. First they rip us off by reducing the size, now it is just a bunch of chemicals and preservatives.

    Breyers is disgusting now. I used to only buy Breyers because it was very affordable when on sale and tasted good. Hagen Daas was always better but 2x the price about. I didn't even mind it when Breyers shrunk their container. But when the taste became borderline gross, I still didn't give up on Breyers for many years until NOW. I train and workout a lot (amateur fighter), and good ice cream is my only vice.I need to at least enjoy if it's going to negate so much of my hard work at the gym. I'm cheap, so once in a while, I go for some Hagen Daas when it's on sale. But now, I've noticed that other brands priced the same as Breyers ($2.50-2.99 per tub), taste considerably better than Turkey Hill, Friendly and even GIANT supermarket brand.

    Wow! I just had my first Mint Chocolate Chip Breyers Ice Cream (if you wanna call it ice cream) taste since I can remember as a teenager. The tara gum and whey they have added causes it to mask the original true natural taste of Breyers. In fact, I didn't care for it and threw out the rest of the gallon product. Too yucky and unnatural. Pays to check ingredients these days since manufacturers are more concerned with cost and profit, not consumers health and vice versa. What's next sodium laurel sulfate in foods next? This is why there is so many cancers and health ailments showing up at an earlier age regardless if it doesn't run in your family tree. Today you must be your own watch dog.

    I ate Breyer's all the time just 7 or 8 years ago. Started getting it again recently and have been very disappointed. I thought it was still natural. We got chocolate chip cookie dough today and the cookie dough chunks taste like something I cannot place...only it's not food. They taste like wooden sticks you get with popsicles. That is the first thing that comes to mind.
