Haagen-Dazs’ Tempting New Flavors

If it’s summer, it must be time for new Haagen-Dazs flavors.

And that’s a very good time, indeed.

That’s eight new flavors, four of which are limited edition ones available only through December, such as “Dark Chocolate Mint” and “Bananas Foster.”

If you’re watching your calories, you’ll be glad to know that three of the new flavors are low-fat frozen yogurts, such as “Peach” and “Raspberry.”

Recently, I had a chance to try samples of four of the newbies:

“Bananas Foster” tastes like banana bread in ice cream form with a whole lot of cinnamon and nutmeg going on.  There are no chunks of bananas in it, just smooth ice cream with a swirl of rum-brown sugar caramel.

“Midnight Cookies & Cream” makes you think of a chocolate milkshake, but with soft chocolate cookie bits and fudge sauce stirred into it.

“Amaretto Almond Crunch” is full of crunchy, sticky bits of almond brittle. The Amaretto adds a wonderful headiness.

The real star for me, though, was the “Haagen-Dazs Five Lemon.” If you’re familiar with the “Five” line, you know they each contain only five ingredients, letting the purity of the flavors really shine through.

This tastes like heavenly lemon chiffon custard. There’s so much lemon zest packed into it, too. Good thing this one will be around longer than the end of the year.

Share and Enjoy

    yum! I love the five line and am a huge fan of all things lemon, so that’s really exciting. The bananas foster sounds pretty amazing too.

    i love the texture of haagen daz but gave up on them because they never put enough junk in their ice cream. i love to have lots of stuff/textures in my ice cream. looks like the midnight one has a good amount of cookies in it.

    I’ve been wondering if the lemon was going to be worth the calories. Sounds like it is. Thanks for answering that question!

    The photos are absolutely mouthwatering. You are making me want some H-D right now.

    Goodness me….if my children see these, they will pester me to go out and buy immediately. They are crazy over haagen daz! I would love to try, too :D

  14. 14

    Even though dark chocolate mint is so simple it sounds amazing.

  15. 15

    That bananas foster ice cream sounds awesome! I’ll have to give it a try!

  16. 16

    Those flavors are incredibly tempting! I would love to try the Bananas Foster — your description of it was amazing!

  17. 17

    I blame you for the thousands of calories i will ingest in the name of research. All of those new flavors will be mine soon. Grrr..

  18. 18

    I’m an ice cream freak, and Hagen Dazs is my favorite. Could eat a whole pint in one sitting! But, that’s another story. Always glad that they broaden their selection. Thanks FG!

    These all sound good to me…except the banana one.

  20. 20

    sis, you defintely got the formula to tempt me with this ice cooling cream “Ice cream”! there goes my diet! :(

  21. 21

    Must say the bananas foster one sounds like an absolute winner! Just wish Haagen Dazs wasn’t so prohibitively expensive where I live. :-/

  22. 22

    They all sound heavenly but I have to agree, that five line sounds like the way to go! :D

  23. 23

    i haven’t tried any, but based on the descriptions, methinks bananas foster is the one for me!

  24. 24

    Tasting ice cream what a great job. I try to stay away from Haagen-Dazs as it’s so rich. The Lemon and the Chocolate Mint sound heavenly. I love both lemon and chocolate. Hopefully I can find them here before December.
    Thanks for the descriptions and the photos. If I wasn’t heading to bed I’d be heading to the store instead.

  25. 25

    That banana fosters has my name on it.

  26. 26

    I hadn’t heard about these new flavors and I want to try them all.

  27. 27

    I haven’t tried any of these flavours but the lemon one sounds just about great :)

  28. 28

    This post made my day!
    They used to make midnight cookies and cream when I was a kid. It was my FAVORITE ice cream and I never forgot about it. I am so excited I will get to have it again (at least for awhile).

    How on earth did I miss this post?!?!??! Fabulous photos and descriptions of each product.

  30. 30

    The lemon ‘Five’ by Haagen Daz is FAB!! It’s so good that I had to find a site I could post and sing its praises. Baby, its SO good. Lemony and creamy w/ bits of lemon zest, not too sweet and gloriously just tart enough…FAB! If you really truly love lemon, do yourself a favor and try this product. YUMMO!!!!

    Haagen-Daz knocked it out of the park with lemon Five ice cream. Only problem seems to be keeping it on the shelves. My family has searched for it all over Texas, and are wondering if this flavor is on vacation……or was discontinued.

    Please, please, please bring it back!!! We love it!!!
