Haagen Dazs Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough
Advantages: Lovely ice cream
Disadvantages: Cookie dough pieces are very sugary
Lately I have been going through a bit of an ice-cream fad, and cannot resist walking past Ben & Jerry's when I am shopping without buying some!
Only problem is, it is quite expensive and it's not very often that it is on promotion, so I cannot buy as much as I would like.
I have tried Haagen-Dazs ice cream a long time ago, and whilst I did like it, I found I preferred Ben & Jerry's.
However, I was shopping in Asda the other day, and walking past the end of the freezers I spotted all Haagen-Dazs ice cream on offer at £2!
I couldn't resist not buying one (or two!), and browsing through the various flavours I settled on Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough.
Haagen-Dazs state that for this flavour they have recreated a childhood treat for an adult palate. Blending chunks of buttery cookie dough and sweet fudge chips with their finest, pure vanilla ice cream. They describe the ice cream on the packaging, as 'Rapturous!'
The ice cream comes in a cardboard tub with a plastic lid.
The ingredients are fresh cream, skimmed milk, sugar solution, cookie dough, fudge chunks, egg yolk and natural flavouring. It also contains wheat and soya ingredients.
On opening the tub, I found the ice cream was too hard to scoop any out at first, so I let it stand for a while. It was then much easier to scoop some out into a bowl.
The ice cream has quite a thick, but smooth and creamy consistency. I found the ice cream has a strong vanilla taste and plenty of chocolate chips swirled through it which tasted really nice.
I tried a chunk of cookie dough, and at first I thought it was gorgeous! After chewing it for a couple of seconds though, it seemed very sugary and sweet, and after swallowing it left a very sugary taste in my mouth.
I had thought the cookie dough pieces would be my favourite part of the ice cream, but I found eating one piece was enough. It was too sweet for me.
The fudge pieces were nice, but there didn't seem to be many in the tub.
A 100 ml serving of this ice cream contains 266 calories - Protein 3.8g - Carbohydrate 24.9g - Fat 16.9g.
Overall I do like this ice cream, but I don't think it is as nice as Ben & Jerry's in my opinion.
I will also avoid eating the cookie dough pieces, so I don't think I will be buying this particular flavour again for myself or family. My daughter also found the cookie dough pieces too sugary for her liking.
If you have a really sweet tooth, however, you may love this ice cream!
Haagen-Dazs do have a whole range of tempting flavours available, and while they are only £2 at Asda, I think I will be tempted to try some of the others, as the cookie dough is the only thing that spoils this flavour for me.
Summary: A nice ice cream, with a range of flavours.
