Breyers Neapolitan Ice Cream

Breyers Vanilla & Strawberry, with a “hint” of Chocolate

March 2011:  I actually took these photos a few months ago, but I’m still annoyed when I see them.  I bought this tub of Breyers Neapolitan Ice Cream, and as you can see from the photos, I’m a little disappointed in the amount of chocolate in the tub.  (It was like this at the top too.  We ate it over several days, figuring that there was a hidden goldmine of chocolate at the bottom.)  Sure, there’s not always a perfectly equal distribution, but it should be close.  They’re not filling these tubs by hand, right?  I doubt it.  I’m sure there’s some machine (set for 10% chocolate, 45% vanilla and 45% strawberry) that fills these things automatically.  This is a simple case of poor product quality control.  All I ask is that they put a little effort in making sure that the product pictured on the side of the box at least comes close to matching the product inside.  If you want to use a crummy distribution, then don’t put a picture on the box.  It’s pretty simple.  Keep your crappy ice cream, Breyers.  I’m switching brands.
