What happens when you combine delicious ice cream from Breyers Ice Cream, a beautiful (and hot) NYC day, singer Kelly Rowland, Allison Williams from GIRLS, Jane the Virgin Star/Broadway’s Chicago Jaime Camil, and Z100’s Danielle Monaro? Breyer’s 150th Birthday Bash! Which was held last Tuesday at Madison Square Park. 150 years — what an accomplishment!
I’ve been enjoying Breyers Ice Cream since I was a kid. In fact, it’s the first ice cream I can remember enjoying with my parents and brother. I have so many memories of sitting at the dinner table, while we enjoyed Buttered Almond. I continue to buy Breyers Ice Cream for my kids. We like to give them a small portion of ice cream after dinner and sometimes we get creative with toppings. My kids usually go for Breyers Natural Vanilla, which is America’s number 1 Vanilla ice cream. It’s made with fresh cream, milk and sugar.
Breyers has always started with high-quality ingredients, a promise that has been on Breyers packages for more than 100 years. I was excited to hear that Breyers only uses milk and cream from cows not treated with artificial growth hormones.* The vanilla that goes into Breyers products is 100% Rainforest Alliance Certified, and comes from sustainable vanilla farms in Madagascar.
For the Breyers 150th Birthday Blowout, I arrived at 11 am at Madison Square Park. As I got close to the park, I wasn’t sure what to expect. As I entered the park, I saw a huge carton of Breyers Vanilla Ice Cream with candles and a 150th display on top. It was larger than life and you were able to walk through it to check out the interactive history of the brand.
There was a working ice cream counter, giving out free cups of Breyers Ice Cream. The line to enjoy the ice cream was literally around the whole event. Everyone wanted some! It was the perfect NYC day to enjoy Breyers Ice Cream. A few of my friends were also there and we were able to sit and enjoy our tasty treats. I would have loved to have taken my kids, but school was still in session and I didn’t want them to miss anything. So I enjoyed ice cream with my friends. Definitely worth the trip in!
In celebration of their 150th birthday, Breyers is introducing a new ice cream variety, Breyers Ice Cream Cake. It features Breyers Chocolate Ice Cream and loads of chocolatey crunchies, sandwiched between Breyers Natural Vanilla Ice Cream. I have to admit I was intrigued, but I decided to enjoy a cup of my favorite vanilla instead. I plan to buy it for my family when I see it in the stores.
The adorable Danielle Monaro of Z100 had the crowd excited and laughing. As I’ve only heard her on the radio, it was cool to actually see her in person.
Singer Kelly Rowland, GIRLS star Allison Williams and star of Jane the Virgin and Broadway’s Chicago, Jaime Camil came to sing Happy Birthday to Breyers and greet everyone. It was an awesome birthday bash – Happy 150th Birthday, Breyers!
