Cyclone a 4-star treat

Get the taste of soft-serve ice cream whirled with toppings without driving to Dairy Queen or another drive-through window.

Breyers’ new Cyclone ice cream is meant to simulate blended treats such as Blizzards and McFlurries straight from your freezer at home.

Food panel tasters liked the ice cream flavors, giving each of the kinds we tasted – Chocolate Fudge Brownie, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough and Caramel Tracks – four out of five stars for flavor.

They especially liked the soft, creamy texture. The tasters described it as “fluffy,” “creamy,” “whipped” and “light.”

“Fantastic,” said Larry Inman. “Wonderful flavor and texture. Hide it way in the back of the freezer or you’ll never get seconds.”

Tina Johnson agreed, “Delicious caramel ribbon with mini caramel cups in a light and fluffy ice cream.”

Peggy Kazanis said it was like an ice cream sundae without the work. “Creamy and light with chocolate brownie chunks. Deep chocolate flavor.”

The ice cream is also sold in Cookies ‘n’ Cream.
