Gelato Sampler: Dessert Date Night #BreyersGelato Indulgences

By  | Last Updated:  

I am being compensated Breyers Gelato Indulgences for participating in this campaign and I am also part of the Mom It Forward Blogger Network.

Remember when you were single and a hot date night meant dressing the part, with fabulous hair and make-up…or at least… you hoped fabulous, and a fun destination with a handsome hunk?  Married with kid(s) sure changes the configuration of date night. And you know what? I’’m satisfied with that!

Gelato Dessert Idea

Don’t get me wrong —I still appreciate the times Mike and I go out. But we have fun, just hanging out at home. We regularly try to do something intentional to make an evening in special. Right now we are anticipating our upcoming cruise to the western Caribbean in October. We’’re very excited about it! It will be the first vacation I have gone on in 15 years that I won’’t have client work of some kind. I’’m not sure I’’ll know what to do with myself. I might not even do anything more than lay on the ship’s deck and bask in the tropical sunshine on the beaches!

Breyers Gelato

This last weekend, after Sam went to bed, we streamed some of our favorite music and pulled out Breyers Gelato Indulgences. We could have just put dips in a bowl and called it good—‘cause it was. But since it was our date night in, I made a little dessert sampler to share. We had a taste test while we discussed upcoming vacation plans. There are eight different Breyers Gelato Indulgences flavors and I actually bought four of them the last time I went to the store! I know —talk about treating yourself!

Breyers Strawberry Truffle

Strawberry Truffle Gelato

Breyers Gelato Indulgences Strawberry Truffle features strawberry gelato topped with rich fudge swirls and gourmet dark chocolate truffles. I added a little strawberry on the glass.

Breyers New Chocolate Caramel Gelato

Chocolate Caramel Gelato

Breyers Gelato Indulgences Chocolate Caramel is oh-so-good chocolate gelato with a yummy caramel sauce and the gourmet chocolate curls. I rimmed a glass in caramel and then rolled it in sugar before filling the glass.

New Breyers Cappucino Gelato

Cappuccino Gelato

Breyers Gelato Indulgences Cappuccino actually has a foamy cream swirl and gourmet chocolate chips. A little mug-shaped glass was perfect for serving.

Breyers Chocolate Mint

I planned to add a sprig of mint to the glass filled with Breyers Gelato Indulgences Mint Chocolate, but our market didn’’t have any. Turns out it didn’’t need anything but its own fudge swirls and chocolate curls.

We had a great debate while we sampled and sampled again. The Breyers Gelato Indulgences are nice and creamy. The sauces are luscious and the gourmet toppings are a great treat. Daydreaming and Breyers Gelato Indulgences go together very well!  We talked about what we might see and do while we’re on the cruise. There are all sorts of options for swimming, snorkeling in coral reefs, and exploring ports. Some of the cruises offer a zipline or mountain bike ride while exploring a rainforest. Will we hear reggae or calypso? I think Mike is right: we will have no problem finding things to do.

The only thing Mike wasn’t right about was the gelato. He said the Breyers Gelato Indulgences Strawberry Truffle is best, but I know the Breyers Gelato Indulgences Chocolate Caramel was. But we’re living happily ever after anyways!
