Although Cornettos can be fun and Ben and Jerry’s are creative and delicious, there’s very little doubt that Häagen-Dazs are the pinnacle of ice cream you can find in a supermarket. Sure, it’s way more expensive than the store brand or any of its competitors, but you can see why when you bring a spoonful to your lips, and everything seems okay with the world, if only for one second.
I love Häagen-Dazs as much as the next guy, but I think it’s got one tiny flaw: it can’t get you drunk. In these hot summer months, there are few things better than chilling on a porch with a sizeable tub of delicious ice cream, but mixing Häagen-Dazs with Bailey’s Irish Cream can be a time-consuming and messy affair.
Luckily for me, it looks as if someone at the California-based creamery has figured this out. Häagen-Dazs have come up with a line of alcoholic flavours that will have you getting drunk in public in the best possible way, and here’s the scoop on all five flavours
Before, if you wanted your ice cream to get you nicely buzzed, there were a number of alcoholic ice cream brands you could sink your tastebuds into. There’s Mercer’s Ice Cream, which is some kind of wine-infused ice cream that worked a lot better than it sounded on paper, and also Tipsy Scoop, which sends a variety of flavours around the United States.
Unfortunately, only the finest ice cream will do for me, and those ice creams never tasted as good as Häagen-Dazs does. Now, Häagen-Dazs have come out with five different flavours of alcoholic ice cream, and I for one can’t wait to sink my teeth into these new boozy flavours.
Häagen-Dazs have appealed to the alcohol lovers in their target demographic with these new flavours, and you can now enjoy Irish Cream Coffee and Biscotti, Whiskey Chocolate Truffle, Vodka Key Lime Pie, Rum Vanilla Caramel or Rum Ginger Cookie for a delicious boozy night in with Häagen-Dazs.
Needless to say, the new boozy flavours have gone down well on social media, but how drunk do we really want to get on ice cream, really? That’s the question being posited by some members of the public, who think the ice cream could possibly use a bit more booze for maximum enjoyment.
I understand the sentiment, but if they made Häagen-Dazs too alcoholic, I know for sure that I’d never eat anything else in my life, and die of liver failure or diabetes a very happy man.
So there’s a whole new line of boozy flavours now on sale at Häagen-Dazs, and everything seems okay with the world again. I can’t wait to tuck into one. The only problem? At the moment, they’re only stocked in all Walmart stores north of the border, so if there was ever a reason to visit dear old Canada…
