IceCream: Haagen-Dazs

    I have over time, become an icecream snob. I sniff at the icecream machines in MacDonald's and gasp in horror at the packaged bars in the supermarket. I probably appreciate Gelato so much because seeing a stand or store means I'm in a mall shopping. The feeling of having a nice crunchy cone of flavourful icecream after a few hours of struggling with clothes is just so nice.
   Now I'd heard of Haagen-Dazs ice-cream and was interested because of the fancy flavours and it also came with a funny story. The owners of Haagen-Dazs just conjured up a Danish sounding name for their company because it sounded old and fancy. Unfortunately for me the only place that sold it in my city was a wholesale supermarket on the outskirts . I couldn't justify leaving my house to travel for an hour just to go get expensive ice-cream. I however found out that the supermarket  delivered groceries to homes! I almost made a habit of buying household items online but the subtle mark-ups on the products took their toll on my budget eventually.


Frozen bliss in a cup...
  I was so excited to eat this I was sure I was going to be disappointed. The instructions say to leave it out for 10-15 minutes before eating so its not too frozen and you can actually taste the flavour...I actually set a timer on it. This stuff exceeded expectations! It is so rich tasting you have to take another bite to confirm that you didn't  imagine the last bite. The ice-cream base itself is cheesecake flavoured(who thinks up these things?) with swirls of strawberry puree and the most interesting part, the biscuit chunks. The chunks are everywhere, you get a bit with every other spoon. They are so generous with the extras that you cannot feel ripped off. It really does feel like you're eating the creamiest cheesecake of all time. Will definitely be trying to eat as many cups of this I can...before I go vegan. All 5 stars!


  1. I have had their ice creams only once and I didn't like it. Maybe I should give it another go x


    1. Oh wow, im surprised but a lot of people say there's better icecream out there.

  2. I don't know if I'd have the patience to wait 15 minutes to eat my ice cream, although it sounds delicious

    Have a wonderful week!

  4. My husband is an ice cream lover too. In fact, for his 50th birthday, he got 50 days of ice cream. Haagen Dazs is one of our favorite because they don't have a lot of extra bad ingredients in it!!

    1. Yay! I wish i could get 50 days of icecream...
