Breyers ice cream has always been a long time family favorite, when I was a kid it was the ice cream brand I remember most being in our freezer. It wasn’t until I was older that I learned that my grandfather (my Dad’s dad who I never met because he passed away before I was born) worked fro Breyers in the 1950’s along with my Uncle Bruce’s Dad who was the CFO when the ice cream was produced in Philadelphia Pa. I remember stories my Dad used to tell me about how as kids he got to be the taste tester (along with the kids of the other people who worked there) for new flavors that Breyers was introducing.
Breyers has partnered with chef Antonia Lofaso to create 5 fun, family-friendly recipes featuring Natural Vanilla to encourage family moments together and when they reached out to me about recreating one of the recipes not only can I not say no to anything involving a reason to eat something tasty, but it lined right up with my family’s love for the brand that we hear stories about all the time from my dad. A little bit of seeing what my dad did as a taste tester as a kid, I got to do with my kids when we recreated the pound cake and peaches sundaes.
Breyers has a Natural Vanilla ice cream, which when learning about it reminded me of the story my dad tells often about how Breyer’s was the first Ice Cream company to use real vanilla bean in their vanilla bean ice cream. It was like a passing down of information from generation to generation while we got to making our sundaes. While making our sundaes I share the information I learned from my dad and how their great grandfather worked for Breyers and so did my Uncle Bruce’s Dad (which is my uncle who passed away 2 years ago this month and my kids loved very much), along with the new information I have recently learned. There really is something to be said for a brand that uses real vanilla beans in the 1950’s and continues to do so in 2015! It also makes me happy as a mom to know that a brand we enjoy sources their milk and cream from cows who are not given any artificial growth hormones!*
Breyers now sources milk and cream from cows not treated with artificial growth hormones*
