Haagen Dazs Cookies & Cream
Advantages: Consistency; Ingredients
Disadvantages: Slightly too sweet
I think in the brand name ice cream stakes the majority of people fit into one of two camps either Ben and Jerrys or Haagen Dazs. I am a Ben and Jerrys fan but I do like from time to time assessing the competition and so treat myself to a tub of Haagen Dazs ice cream. One of my favourite flavours is Cookies and Cream as I do like both chocolate and ice cream with bits in.
Haagen Dazs ice cream comes in distinctive and fairly classy maroon, gold and white tubs with a little picture indicating the flavour on the front. The cookies and cream tub is graced with a picture of two cookies looking very reminiscent of Oreos.
When you open the tub you are greeted by a dark cream ice cream heavily sprinkled with chocolate cookies. The pieces vary in size from little crumbs to small chunks. Even after a day in the freezer (ice cream doesn't hang around long in my house!) the ice cream is soft enough to be enjoyed straight away. The base ice cream is a sweet cream ice cream rather than a vanilla ice cream. This means that with your first mouthful you are first hit by the sweet creamy taste of the ice cream with the texture of soft cookie pieces. I think the cookie pieces are there to temper the sweetness of the ice cream but the chocolate flavour isn't very dominant. In my opinion I think the ice cream would be even better if it was a little less sweet and you could actually taste the cookie pieces but I do enjoy the actual taste.
I make my own ice cream from time to time partly because I like to know exactly what's in it (bear with me I am going somewhere with this) so out of interest I thought I'd check what was in this ice cream. And was pleasantly surprised to find that there are no nasty additives or unexpected ingredients. However bear in mind that this is not a low fat or health conscious product so it is liberally packed with calories, fat and I'd have thought sugar too although that isn't listed on the nutritional panel on my latest tub.
Haagen Dazs ice creams are available in two tub sizes 500ml for just under £4 and, to ensure you don't have to share your tub, a 100ml tub for just over £1.
Cookies and cream is a quality luxury ice cream, ideal for those days when you want a simple flavoured well made ice cream.
