“ Type: Sorbets & Ice Cream „
I am a big fan of Baileys and drink it every christmas. I love the creaminess of the liquor.
Out shopping one day i saw a baileys ice cream made by Haagen - Dazs, i dont like ice cream i have very sensitive teeth and find ice cream far to cold and to sweet. I bought a pot because i know my sister is a fan of Haggen - Dazs and would be round later that eveing for a girly night.
I got home and put the ice cream in the freezer and nearly forgot about it, after a few glasses of wine and some serious pigging out i remebered that i had bought her this ice cream. I got the ice cream out of the freezer and her face lit up. She opened it straight away and started to eat the lot. I asked if i may try it not expecting it to taste like Baileys and knowing i would dislike it as it is after all ice cream. It was lovely.
I was in love, my taste buds came alive, not only did it taste of Baileys but it wasnt cold and harsh on my teeth. It was creamy and it was like a smooth milkshake but it was ice cream. It didnt taste frozen and it wasnt hard. I really dont like ice cream but this was something completly different. If you are like me and have sensitive teeth then try this it is so good.
As you can imagin this ended up with us having a row as both of us wanted to eat all this ice crream and it is not one to share. This is the kind of ice cream that you eat alone when you want something to comfort you and a bit of pampering. We managed to share it in the end without it turing in to a fight. We both admit that this is the best ice cream that you can get.
Although it is a bit pricey at around £3.45 for a 415g pot, it is perfect for that treat once a month. And you have to keep it to once a month, not only because of the price but because of the amount of calories. It contains a whopping 225kcal and 14.7g of fat per 100ml. The pot containes 500ml so that is a huge amount as i garentee you will eat the lot. A great indulgence but not great for your hips.
The container is a medium size pot decorated in red and gold. It has the typical Haagen - Dazs logo on the front and on the lid and the Baileys logo positioned just under this. On the back of the tub there is a list of ingredients. Acording to the list it only containes 4% Baileys irish cream. Wow how cool is that, the taste of Baileys without there being a abundent amount of the alcohol in the ice cream.
It also states "for your longer lasting pleasure" . Well i dont agree, there is just not enough in the pot for longer lasting pleasure. When you have finished the pot all you do is crave more and you will finish the pot. It does however leave a coating of baileys in your mouth which even after an hour you can still taste.
Also on the back is the nutrition information and a web site address. There is also a free phone number that you can call to leave your comments. The sell by date is on the bottom of the pot.
As you can proberly tell i have become a huge fan of this ice cream, but there is one big problem, whilst out shopping i thought i need to get some of that amazing comfort ice cream, and i couldnt find it anywhere. I looked in Asda, Tescos, and spa. I was gutted. I know that Asda and Tesco do sell it, but were out of stock and i ahve writen a letter of complaint. How can they be out of stock on something that is pure heaven for a whole week.
Eventually my partner spoted it in the local newsagents. Thank God and tonight i will be enjoying my one and only very naughty comfort food.
Oooh I did not think ice cream could get any better, but Haagen dazs have done it! I normally am a mint choc chip girl but on a recent trip to blockbusters to get a dvd I was tempted by the offer they had on the large tubs on Haagen daz. They had the large 1 litre tubs for half price, so it came to around £2.50 I think. I must have been the only person in the world that did not know that Haagen daaz made baileys ice-cream!!
Baileys is my ultimate favourite alcoholic drink, although I tend to only drink it at Christmas time. It is far too creamy and rich to drink on a night out with the girls but I do love a small glass as a treat. This ice cream therefore sounded heavenly to me.
The packaging is fairly standard, the usual Haagen daaz logo on the front with the baileys logo underneath, so no pictures or anything to give you an indication of what it will be like. When you take the lid off it looks fairly boring, just a creamy slightly browny colour ice cream, the same colour as baileys.
But don't be fooled by its boring exterior, it is the tastiest, yummiest ice -cream I had ever had. It was so soft and creamy and above all really did taste like baileys. Quite often these flavour ice creams can be abit weak compared to what they are meant to be tasting like. This however was not, it tasted very strongly of baileys and you almost felt like you were getting the full alcoholic-ness of the drink. I did check however and the baileys content is only 4% so I hardly think you could get drunk off it, but still it really does taste that strong!
It is rich and creamy but I really did not get bored of it, I had to stop myself half way down otherwise I would have easily eaten the whole tub to myself.
My only criticism is that it does melt really quickly. The adverts for Haagen daaz go on about how the icecream melts slowly but In my experience that just isn't the case. I put the other half back in the freezer and when I went to get it out the next day I left it out to defrost abit. 5 minutes later I came back to a tub of liquid icecream. Slightly disappointing, but it tasted nice all the same!
Haagen Dazs do a gorgeous Baileys flavour ice cream which you really should try if you haven't already! I've not had any in ages and when we had a glass of Baileys liqueur the other day at a party, it got me thinking that we should really track some of this down for one of our date nights. I've checked online and found that supermarkets stock it for £3.99 per 500ml tub, including Sainsburys, so that'll definitely be going in the with the shopping this week.
When you first get this out of the freezer you'll find it's rock solid so you need to leave it out to thaw for about half an hour before serving. When you do serve it up, I recommend just grabbing a spoon (or two) because it's highly unlikely that any of this will be returned to the freezer once opened!
The taste and texture are really deep, thick, soft and creamy. The smell of Baileys liqueur is overwhelming when you dig your spoon into this and if you like the popular coffee liqueur then you'll love this I'm sure. I know I do! This is one of the most luxurious ice creams ever made and is one that every Baileys fan should try.
I used to buy vanilla ice cream and pour Baileys over it, which was messy, expensive and used up too much of my precious drink.
Then, one day, I was at the supermarket and just happened to spot it there, nestling amongst the other ice creams. Haagen Dazs Baileys ice cream.
I realised then that life does have meaning and that there is a god. I bought a little tub of this newly discovered treat, and rushed home to try it for myself.
This has all the delicious flavour of Baileys, combined with the creaminess of the ice cream, and it's delicious. Furthermore, it does not get you drunk and costs less than buying the drink incarnation of it, so you can enjoy more for less; how brilliant is that?!
It can be hard to get hold of though, as some mad supermarkets don't seem to stock that flavour. But it is worth the effort to hunt it down...
For my husbands birthday recently, I decided to prepare a romantic meal at home. Having young children makes it difficult to go out for the night, so this seemed the perfect compromise. With the main course simmering away gently and my meringue mixture cooking in the oven in preparation of my passionfruit pavlova, I poured myself a glass of wine and took it through to the living room. The kids were tucked up in bed and hubby was on his way home from work, so seemed like the perfect time to put my feet up. Somehow I got caught up in the action of Eastenders and forgot all about my pavlova. I could smell a sickly, sweet burning smell so jumped up and ran into the kitchen. @#!? My pudding was ruined. What was I going to do now? I searched the cupboards for inspiration, but the clock was ticking. Not enough time. So, ice-cream it had to be. I remembered a few weeks ago I had purchased a tub of Haagen Daaz Bailey's ice-cream, but had totally forgotten its existence since my plunge into a new diet. The tub had long since been forgotten and had crawled its way down to the bottom of the freezer. I pulled it out and kissed it, praying that the meal would be a success. Sad to say, the ice-cream went down a treat, I was hoping to get it all to myself, but no such luck. This ice-cream really hit the spot and is definitely not one for the kids - it's far too good to share! As with all Haagen Daaz ice-cream, this one was creamy, rich and extremely high in calories. Made from fresh cream and skimmed milk it's easy to see why. I couldn't find any nutritional information on the carton and couldn't care less what it contained anyway, I was on a mission to see if this was as good as its claims. The diet could wait another day or so. You could easily be fooled into thinking that you were scooping frozen Bailey's, but the ice-cream only contains 4% of the liquer. It tastes like the real thing despite the small am
ount of alcohol in it. The ice-cream is identical in colour - creamy, coffee coloured. It smells gorgeous too. Very similar to the old-fashioned Rum and Raisin. The ice-cream can be found at some supermarkets, but you have to search for it. It's not widely available yet, but I bought it from Tesco. It is packaged in the typical Haagen Daaz cardboard, flowerpot shaped tub, and is burgundy and cream in colour, with the famous company logo emblazened on the side, along with a Bailey's company badge alongside. The lid is gold coloured and made from plastic. Coming in at around at the princely sum of £3.49 for a 450ml tub, this ice-cream is really worth its weight in gold. For special occasions it is worth pushing the boat out that little bit further. All I can say is that I am so glad my pavlova turned out to be a disaster. Bailey's ended up saving the day. Here's a tip for when you try the ice-cream. Pour a drop of Bailey's Liquer over the top of the ice-cream before serving. Mmmm! Delicious! Enjoy! Or save it all for me!
Baileys in an ice-cream, heaven I hear you say. Well it is close too it, trust me! But I have found making your own bailey's ice-cream is a sure hit for heaven! Haagen-Dazs version is a bit on the expensive side ranging from £4.49 - £6 a 450ml tub (depending on where you buy it). The ice-cream is best left to stand for up to 10 minutes outside of the freezer - whilst still in tub, this makes it easier to serve and gives a creamier consistency complimenting the luxurious taste of Baileys. A fantastic new pudding idea is to serve hot Brownies (or simply chocolate cake), with a dollop of Haagen Dazs - choc choc chip and a double dollop of Bailey's Ice-cream! I could eat this all day. Enjoy
I simply love this ice cream, but, I found a cheaper alternative whilst on holiday in Italy. The Italians love they ice creams, and boy are they fantastic. Whilst in Milan, I discovered the joys of lemon sorbet with champagne. So naughty, but absolutely delightful. Now this heaven-sent idea set my own mind running as to other alternatives. The best one I had was the "Baileys and cheaposupermarket icecream" brainwave, and it's gorgeous. The reason why I would say that it's better than Haagen Daz (HD) is that you can decide exactly how much Baileys you want in your pudding! There's not much alcohol in HD's version, so this is my solution to that inadequacy! Also, this works out a hell of a lot cheaper. And as other opinions have pointed out, HD Baileys ice cream is extremely calorific, and unfortunately, very moreish. So, if you buy a tub of cheap vanilla for a quid in the supermarket, and no doubt you'll already have a bottle of Baileys somewhere (if not, it's an excuse to buy one!), this pud's delicious, sophisticated, and above all, cheap!
Yummy Yummy to the Tummy!!! Haagen Dazs Baileys ice cream must be the food of the Gods. I've tried Ambrosia, and it can't really be that!!! Creamy, smooth, delicious, tastes exactly like Baileys. Many a good diet falls to the wayside upon one glimpse of a family sized tub of Haagen Dazs Baileys. I've never come across such a naughty but nice goody! I'm a so called grown up with a mental age of ,I'll be generous to myself, say 10! I've always drooled over ice cream. The inner child always beats the dull old sensible head. But's it's hard to give up something so goooood. I like most of the chocolate varieties of Haagen Dazs as well, the chocolate choc chip and cookies and cream are to die for, but I just feel so flaming guilty for pigging out on the stuff. But Baileys? Well, it sounded so much more grown up and refined. Surely I was well within my rights as an adult to give it a try. When I first tasted it, it was love at first bite. As well as the yummy big greedy guts family size which, I don't know about you, but I'd NEVER share with my family, it also comes in a single serving size. Only one problem with that one, though, it's so damn good, I end up having 3. I batttled long and hard to get 5 stones off, and I gave up almost every delicious thing that I used to grace my lips with, but if anyone had made me give up my Haagen Dazs Baileys, I'd have reported them immediately to the NSPCC (National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Chocoholics!) My local cinema has just opened a Haagen Dazs cafe, so I limit myself to only eating it when I'm at the pictures. I'm so restrained, I even impress myself! One thing, though, Has anyone noticed how many good films are on at the moment. I really do have to start going to the cinema every night - but only for the films, you understand!
When I first tasted this ice cream I thought that ice cream could never get any better but I was wrong, it can! I had one of those little pots of Bailey's Haagen Daz which only serves to get you hooked and make you crave more, so I had to go back to the supermarket and get more. I came out with a regular sized 500 mil tub. The pale coffee coloured ice cream just sat there aski g to be bought. I swear that I could smell it through the tub. All the way home my mouth was watering so you can guess what I did as soon as I got inside the door. I suddenly had a thought, and that is when this ice cream started to get even better. Why not dribble a touch of proper Baileys onto the top like an ice cream topping? Mmm, mouthwatering and gorgeous. I have now discovered that you can get this ice cream covered in chocolate, on a stick! Yummy! I won't have to wait until I get home if I buy it that way. This ice cream is actually made from 4% Baileys. It is also very high in fat if you like to watch your diet. A hundred mil serving has 14.7 grams of fat. The best part is that because this is a very rich, sweet and sickly ice cream you won't be able to eat a large portion. Compare 100 mil of this to a decent sized serving of any other ice cream and I don't think there's much difference.
I'm no longer a huge fan of Haagen-Dazs since I discovered Ben & Jerry's. I like my ice cream packed with chunks of flavour, where haagen daz seem to have dinty little pieces. Anyway as a complete Baileys addict, I just had to try this ice cream, and as I couldn't even imagine a Baileys ice cream with any kind of chunks I figured I couldn't be too disappointed. Well I was not disappointed in the slightest, it's a pale coffee coloured ice cream which just simply melts in your mouth. It's soooo smooth and creamy they have really captured the essence of Baileys. You can get this ice cream in both the little piddley tubs, (I'm not sure what purpose these serve, they remind me more of a free sample which unfortunately isn't free and leaves you begging for more.) and the regular 500ml tubs. It also comes on a stick covered in wonderful dark chocolate. I try to save this ice cream for special occasions, it's very good served just before coffee at dinner parties, a good idea is to liven it up with a splash of real Baileys. The ice cream itself does actually contain 4% of Baileys (I think it means 4% Baileys and not 4% alcohol as I let my 10yr old nephew eat it!) but a little more isn't going to hurt :-) Now for the disturbing information 100ml serving contains 14.7 grams of fat, and in my book that's a pretty stingy portion although this is one of the most sickly ice creams I've come across if you do over indulge, as it is rather sweet and very creamy.
The world loves Baileys Original Irish Cream, a unique Irish cordial now enjoyed in more than 130 countries around the globe. The smoothness of Baileys is a natural complement to the creaminess of Häagen-Dazs ice cream.
