I’ve mentioned hundreds of times once or twice my love of ice cream. I love ice cream in all forms: soft serve, hand dipped, in a sundae, on a stick, in a cone, as a milkshake. So when a product review opportunity from Mom Central arrived in my inbox for Häagen-Dazs, I wiped the drool off my chin and hit respond pretty darn quick.
Häagen-Dazs has a new line. And they sent me 4 (four! all for me!) pints to try.
The new Häagen-Dazs line is Five. They call it ice cream unplugged. It boasts only 5 all natural ingredients in each flavor: milk, cream, sugar, eggs, and the flavor ingredient so the natural flavors shine through. They sent me mint, brown sugar, ginger, and passion fruit.
Mint: very creamy, the perfect amount of mint (didn’t feel like i was eating toothpaste which some overpowering mint flavors can). Quite yummy and refreshing.
Brown sugar: again quite creamy. It tasted like cookie dough before you put the chocolate chips in – big YUM. The sweet factor was pretty high on this one as you can imagine so it meant I didn’t have to eat much to be very satisfied.
Ginger: The ice cream itself was creamy and tasted like fresh ginger. I’m not a big fan of ginger so it wasn’t my cup of tea.
Passion fruit: creamy and so fruity! The fruit flavor was so fresh it was surprising. Very refreshing – a great ending to a spicy meal.
It also comes in coffee, chocolate, and vanilla bean.
As a thank you for reviewing the product (like the ice cream wasn’t thanks enough), they sent me a few certificates for a free pint of any Häagen-Dazs ice cream or a package of Häagen-Dazs bars. And because I love you all, I’m going to share. I must love you all because I don’t share ice cream. Ask my husband. Or my children.
For the next few weeks, I’m going to do a give away each Friday. You can win a certificate good for a free pint of any Häagen-Dazs ice cream or a package of Häagen-Dazs bars. You can try one of the new Haagen-Dazs Five flavors or an old favorite. Your choice.
To enter this week’s give away, visit the Haagen-Dazs site and tell me what you think of the new Häagen-Dazs Five line of ice cream. Does it appeal to you? I will draw a random winner at 1pm CT on Monday April 20th. Leave a valid email address so I can contact you if you are the winner.
And thanks Haagen-Dazs for packaging it in dry ice. I had fun melting it down.
