ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., March 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Breyers®, the brand known for bringing families together to enjoy delicious frozen treats for more than 140 years, is expanding its portfolio with the introduction of new Breyers® Gelato Indulgences™. Each of the four delicious varieties features a trio of textures – creamy gelato, luscious sauce and gourmet toppings – for the ultimate indulgence.
To support the launch of Breyers® Gelato Indulgences™, a new campaign will show couples how to create the perfect date night at home – with a new reason to "spoon."

"With its uniquely indulgent trio of textures, Breyers® Gelato Indulgences™ can help busy parents create a great date night right at home, any night of the week."
