My son looks over my shoulder and reads the title of this blog post and says, “I know why I smile…’cause it’s good!” And he’s absolutely right. Dreyer’s Slow Churned ice cream is my family’s favorite. Mint Chocolate Chip happens to be our favorite kind, although there are more than 20 great-tasting flavors. Rocky Road, Cookies ‘N Cream, Neapolitan and Vanilla Bean are also frequently found in my family’s freezer.
Dreyer’s Slow Churned ice cream tastes so good that at first I didn’t realize it has half the fat and one-third fewer calories of regular ice cream. I bought it because I loved the creamy texture and rich flavor. One day, I happened to read the outside of the carton and saw where it said “1/2 the Fat” – and got all happy because that means I can eat twice as much, right???
This summer, Dreyer’s ice cream is giving everyone 3 Big Reasons to smile:
#1: Dreyer’s Slow Churned Ice Cream gives you all the flavor and only half the fat!
#2: Give a smile to Dreyer’s, and they will give $5 to Operation Smile!
#3: Your ice cream smile could go on a Dreyer’s ice cream carton!
Operation Smile is an international children’s medical charity and for every ice cream smile that is uploaded to Dreyer’s Facebook page, they will donate $5. These efforts will help deliver more than 500 reconstructive surgeries to children around the globe suffering from cleft lip, cleft palate and other facial deformities.
You Can Help Support the Cause!
Dreyer’s will be giving out more than 25,000 free scoops of ice cream at events across the nation and in hopes of gathering 25,000 pictures of ice cream smiles before the summer ends. If you can’t make it to an event, you are invited to upload your ice cream smile at the Dreyer’s Facebook Page. I can’t think of a better reason to eat ice cream than being a part of an effort to help Operation Smile improve the lives of children.
Ten lucky photo winners will be featured in a Dreyer’s Slow Churned print ad and one amazing ice cream smile will make its way to a Limited Edition flavor of Slow Churned ice cream carton. Could it be yours?
