Breyers ice cream has introduced the first light ice cream products for use as part of a low-carbohydrate diet. Breyers(R) CarbSmart(TM) Light Vanilla Fudge Sundae and Breyers(R) CarbSmart(TM) Light Chocolate Peanut Butter have half the fat, 40 percent fewer calories than regular ice cream* and 4g net carbs (per half-cup serving).

The new light flavors join Breyers(R) line of CarbSmart(TM) ice cream products first introduced in late 2003 and expanded last year. Although low- carb diets may have peaked, carbohydrate awareness is here to stay. Since their introduction, Breyers(R) CarbSmart(TM) ice cream products quickly became best-sellers throughout 2004 with four flavors among the top 10 new packaged ice cream.

"The new light products meet the needs of the many consumers who are customizing their low-carb diets by cutting back on fat as well as carbs," says Dan Hammer, Vice President of Marketing and Development, Good Humor- Breyers. "According to our own research, sixty-six percent of carb-conscious consumers are seeking products lower in fat. These new CarbSmart products are lower in fat than regular ice cream and indulgent-tasting, which makes them an ideal choice for carb-conscious dieters."

New Breyers(R) CarbSmart(TM) Light Vanilla Fudge Sundae pairs vanilla ice cream with crunchy chocolate-covered peanuts and a satisfying fudge swirl. Chocoholics can enjoy Breyers(R) CarbSmart(TM) Light Chocolate Peanut Butter, which combines chocolate ice cream with a thick peanut butter swirl.

New Breyers(R) CarbSmart(TM) Light products will be sold in supermarkets beginning in early February. A 1.75 quart container has a suggested retail price of $5.09.
