Kit Kat Ice Cream

Gimme a break! Gimme a break! Break me off a piece of that Kit Kat Bar. It's been a busy morning and so for a treat, I told the kids that they deserve a break.

So today, we're trying the new Kit Kat Ice Cream.

We've already had a busy morning, with the four of us going on a 5 mile bike ride. And then after lunch, Theresa thought the cars needed a wash.

The kids changed into their swimsuits and washed the low parts of the car, while Theresa and I took care of the high parts. It was a good collaboration.

Beautiful! After washing Theresa's car, they washed my car, and Grandpa's car. Three car washes? You guys definitely deserve a break.

And so out of the freezer, I grabbed a treat that I've been saving. Kit Kat Ice Cream!

The back of the container says "Have a Break, Have a KitKat". "We loaded rich and creamy chocolate light ice cream with Kit Kat candy pieces and a wafter swirl - it's the perfect break from the everyday to keep the fun going!"
Hmm. Light chocolate ice cream? And what's a wafer swirl?

Taking a look at the ice cream, I can see the Kit Kat candy pieces.

Time to eat it!

Well, here's my thoughts. I wish the ice cream wasn't light ice cream. I want it to be creamier and richer. The wafer swirl, Theresa was asking if it was some kind of nougat. I couldn't really tell.

And as far as the candy pieces go, they should have completely coated them in chocolate. Having them open like this meant the wafers got soggy instead of being crunchy like they should have been.

Despite at that, it's still ice cream, which means it's tasty regardless.

Drinking the melted ice cream from the bottom. The ice cream soup.

The kids give the Kit Kat ice cream and the Kit Kat candy bar a thumbs up.

And just because I feel like it, here's the original Gimme A Break Kit Kat commercial. 


  1. Cute Kit Kat commercial...never saw it before (brought to mind that old Almond Joy commercial: "You can share a half and still have a whole!") I was wondering how the wafer part of the Kit Kat would hold up in the ice I know :-) Ice cream soup...yes! Having the kids wash the lower part of the cars is great...saves a lot of bending, especially with 3 to wash...nice and sparkly, and a sense of accomplishment and deserving of a snack! EOM

    1. I haven't seen that Almond Joy commercial. The one I remember is "Sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don't."
