It’s hard not to love Haagen Dazs. The texture is always creamy, smooth and velvety. The flavors are real and faithful to the fruits that inspired them. And what they say is true – the ice cream’s consistency is dense and full-bodied, not full of air, even when melted. True, the price is very premium but the quality you get is incomparable. We got invited to another Haagen Dazs event (always a welcome thought for any foodie) and got to try more flavors.
Lagal[og] said: The Dark Chocolate Orange flavor is really something else. Never thought orange can go well with chocolate but this one came out very good. I guess the orange acts as a foil to the chocolate’s semi-sweetness. There are even orange bits especially when you get to the halfway mark of the cup.
Ironwulf said: Scraping through the surface of the Dark Chocolate Orange, I thought it was good. I’ve always liked dark chocolates but I was looking for something different. I dug deeper and uncovered the rich orange flavor that adds a nice fruity contrast to the chocolate ice cream. It’s very good, especially with bits of pulp right to the core. I enjoyed it.
Lagal[og] said: I also ordered the Banana Ssplit out of curiosity. Hmmm, I’ve always loved banana split when I was a kid and now I wonder, how would it taste when it’s made from Haagen Dazs? Well, this one didn’t disappoint. It took time before I can eat my ice cream since we had to take turns in shooting our orders but the nice thing about Haagen Dazs is that even the melted ice cream retains its consistency. Even a common flavor as strawberry gets a flavorful second look with this concoction. The bed of crushed ice cream cones at the bottom also adds a delightful crunch.
Ironwulf said: I love cookies so I tried the Macadamia Nut Crunch on the menu but with a twist. Instead of the Macadamia, I paired Melon Ice Cream with Chocolate Midnight Cookies for that added fruitiness. The combination was a good one well as expected. And the cookies added that welcome crunch. It’s a nice treat.
