Haagen-Dazs 2012 Limited Edition Flavors

Mr. Monkey found this on our doorstep today.
014 015
After I posted about the Haagen-Dazs Suite Sweet at the Hotel Triton, a nice Haagen-Dazs representative e-mailed me and asked if I'd like to try the 2012 limited edition flavors.  Obviously, my answer was yes!

Four beautiful pints.
Totally frozen and perfect even after their long journey.

As described by Haagen-Dazs:
  • Coconut Macaroon -- Inspired by centuries-old recipes spanning from Europe & Asia, our coconut macaroon ice cream is made with soft, chewy coconut macaroon cookies folded into delicate coconut ice cream.
  • Spiced Caramel Biscuit -- The classic European biscuit, Speculoos, inspired our spiced caramel biscuit ice cream; crumbles of sugary, crunchy cinnamon-sparked biscuits blended into velvety caramel ice cream.
  • Vanilla Bean Espresso -- We looked to Italy's classic dessert, vanilla affogato, to create our vanilla bean espresso ice cream: a twist of intense espresso swirled into creamy, rich vanilla ice cream.
  • Salted Caramel Truffle -- We looked to the classic French confection, fleur de sel, for our salted caramel truffle ice cream: smooth, sweet-cream ice cream, ribbons of rich salted caramel, and decadent chocolaty truffles.
The moment I finished photographing the cartons, Mr. Monkey dove into the Coconut Macaroon.
He ate the whole thing right then and there!  If that's not a ringing endorsement, I don't know what is!  Luckily, I'm not a coconut fan, so I didn't mind that he finished this pint all by himself.  I guess Mr. Monkey the Coconut Lover was really the lucky one.

I've had a few bites of the remaining three flavors, and they are fantastic.  The chunks of biscuit and truffles are rather generous.  But my heart belongs to the Vanilla Bean Espresso.  It's like a creamy frozen vanilla latte but better!

Thank you, Haagen-Dazs!

These samples were complimentary.


  1. Your life is perfect. Free Haagen-Dazs just showing up on your doorstep? I think that's what heaven is like.

  2. Please tell the HD marketing people that their plan worked--I am eating salted caramel truffle out of the container as I type. Exciting Friday night (:

  3. Salt + dessert = happy.
    And nice print!
