Desserts of Europe, Asia Inspire Häagen-Dazs Flavors

Beginning mid-January, Häagen-Dazs Shops will unveil four indulgent flavors available exclusively for new and loyal shop customers. Prior to hitting grocery aisles, shops nationwide will feature the flavors in unique sundaes for a limited time.

The internationally renowned brand known for its pure, super premium ice cream developed a collection of new flavors, inspired by several dessert delicacies found around the world.

“From the cobblestone streets of Europe to the local neighborhood Häagen-Dazs Shop, we are offering consumers the chance to explore international cultures through our new exclusive flavors,” says Dawn Uremovich, president of Häagen-Dazs Shops.

“Taste buds throughout the nation will be renewed with these frozen treats inspired by some of the world’s most delicious desserts.”

Häagen-Dazs Shops will introduce one new sundae each week. The flavors include:

  • Vanilla Bean Espresso Sundae: An interpretation of the classic Italian dessert Vanilla Affogato, this treat features intense espresso swirled in rich, vanilla ice cream topped with espresso syrup and whipped cream.
  • Spiced Caramel Biscuit Sundae: Inspired by the popular European biscuit Speculoos, this decadent dessert includes buttery biscuits crumbled into velvety caramel ice cream, topped with caramel, bananas, and whipped cream.  
  • Salted Caramel Truffle Sundae: A taste made famous by the French confection Fleur De Sel, this sundae consists of chocolaty truffles, salted caramel, and sweet cream ice cream topped with whipped cream and garnished with a chocolate-dipped pretzel.
  • Coconut Macaroon Sundae: Soft, chewy cookies folded into rich coconut ice cream topped with strawberries and whipped cream evoke the tropical flavors of Asia.

 

In addition to its signature irresistible ice cream creations, the internationally recognized brand offers a unique selection of sorbets, frozen yogurts, frozen beverages, and a variety of indulgent frozen desserts including Brownies à la Mode Sundae and Dazzler ice cream treats.
