What's for Dessert - Häagen-Dazs Ice Cream Review

Posted by Truffle Shuffle

 Häagen-Dazs Limited Edition Ice Creams Review

It's time for another review!  This time we have some wonderful ice cream received from Roxana at Roxana's Home Baking, courtesy of Häagen-Dazs.  With five different flavors to try, we had quite a bit of fun with this review.  It might be time for some exercise now though!

Blueberry Crumble - 5/5
This was my personal favorite.  It has a nice, sweet blueberry flavor, and delicious crunchy pieces reminiscent of pie crust.  This one is pretty much like mixing your ice cream with a blueberry pie.  If you love blueberries, you absolutely cannot go wrong here.  Delicious!

Vanilla Bean Espresso - 5/5
Another great one.  This one is swirled with delicious coffee ice cream, and has a fairly strong coffee flavor that you may not find in a lot of lower-quality coffee ice creams.  With decadent vanilla bean flavor and rich espresso, this is a coffee lover's ice ream!

Salted Caramel Truffle - 3/5
This was a favorite in the house.  It has salted caramel mixed in, and small chocolate truffle pieces.  For me personally, this was not a favorite, and I found the salty flavor to be a bit much.  But the other members of the household loved this one.

Coconut Macaroon - 4/5
I am not a huge fan of coconut in general, but I really liked this one.  It had a sweet but not overpowering coconut flavor that mixed wonderfully with the ice cream, as well as pieces of tasty macaroon pieces.  If you like coconut, this is a great choice.

Spiced Caramel Biscuit - 3/5
This was my least favorite personally.  I found it to be a bit on the bland side.  That being said, the other people in the household also really enjoyed this one, so I suppose it comes down to personal taste.  This one has a caramel ice cream, with little pieces of cinnamon biscuits throughout.

I have always known Häagen-Dazs as a company that makes great, high-quality ice cream, and these flavors are no exception.  If you are looking for a rich, decadent treat (especially on one of these oh-so-hot nights!), you would do well picking any of these.  But my personal favorites are the blueberry and espresso.  Yum!
Happy ice cream hunting!
