Dreyer’s Gives You More Than One #ReasonToSmile – Frugal Novice

Dreyer’s Gives You More Than One #ReasonToSmile


Note: This post is brought to you by Dreyer’s and the Motherhood. I was provided with product coupons and compensated for my time, but all opinions are honest and are my own. 

It’s July. And I’m in Texas, which means that I’m in the midst of triple-digit temps and scorching summer days. What is the perfect treat to combat the heat? Ice cream, of course! It’s an even better choice right now since July is National Ice Cream Month.

Even better – Dreyer’s has released four Limited Edition flavors, which are a great way to celebrate this momentous occasion! I got a chance to try the new Dreyer’s flavors, and decided to have an ice cream party up at work to share the fun with my coworkers. We lined up the tubs along the counter in our office kitchen, and everyone had fun trying all the different flavors. Let’s take a look at what we got to try:

Take the Cake: Yellow cake-flavored light ice cream with a frosting swirl and multi-colored sprinkles. It’s the classic combination of cake and ice cream in one convenient carton. Available in Slow Churned Light Ice Cream.

{NEW} German Chocolate Cake Spectacular!: If you froze a German Chocolate Cake and then exploded it into a carton of chocolate ice cream, you’d end up with this amazing limited edition flavor. Chocolate ice cream with a caramel coconut swirl and brownie pieces. Available in Grand Ice Cream and Slow Churned Light Ice Cream.

{NEW} Sunny Salted Caramel Pretzel: Salty, sweet, and oh so scrumptious. Vanilla ice cream with a salted caramel swirl and pretzel pieces. It’s probably the greatest flavor combination in the history of the world. Available in Grand Ice Cream and Slow Churned Light Ice Cream.

3 Stripes You’re Out: America’s Favorite Pastime has a new favorite flavor! Vanilla ice cream with mixed blueberry and strawberry swirls. This Limited Edition flavor will leave your home crowd on its feet cheering! Available in Grand Ice Cream.


As you can imagine, we were all ready to dive in and start sampling. The flavor I was most drawn to was the Sunny Salted Caramel Pretzel – and it was SOOO good. I love that the Slow Churned Light ice cream has all the taste and 1/2 the fat (with 1/2 the fat and 1/3 fewer calories than regular ice cream). The caramel swirls and the saltiness perfectly balanced the sweet creaminess of the vanilla ice cream. It was definitely my favorite flavor! They were all great, though, and everyone was amazed that the slow churned light ice cream was so deliciously rich.  Here are some of my coworkers with their treats:



It worked out well, because one of my coworkers was celebrating his birthday the next day, so he took home his favorite flavor (“Take the Cake”) to share with his family. It was a lot of fun sharing these delicious flavors with everyone, and people enjoyed sampling each one.


Beyond amazing ice cream, Dreyer’s has given us another reason to smile, with their #ReasonToSmile campaign partnering with Operation Smile. If you’re not familiar with it, Operation smile is an international children’s medical charity that makes it possible to provide reconstructive surgeries for children around the globe suffering from cleft lip, cleft palate and other facial deformities. Thanks to this great campaign Dreyer’s & Operation Smile will help make it possible for 500 of these surgeries to take place!

Dreyer’s has been posting content on its Facebook page since mid-May encouraging fans to help the brand donate to Operation Smile. They’ll donate up to $125,000 this year and the campaign will run through September 30, 2013.
