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.
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!
