Japanese Häagen-Dazs Magic

I just don’t know how they do it. How they manage to surpass themselves every time.

The lineup of Häagen-Dazs ice cream in Japan would put all other countries to shame I’m sure. I’ve tried nearly every single flavour out there I’m sure – except Vanilla. I refuse to have Vanilla ice cream when I can and should have something more mind-blowing. Green Tea, Green Tea and Cookies, Macadamia Nut, Orange and Mango, Cookies and Cream, Vanilla Cookie Raspberry, Chocolate Brownie, you name it, I’ve tried it. My favourite is Triple Chocolate Truffle, but I haven’t seen it recently – and that’s probably a good thing. (I don’t understand how people say they lose weight here in Japan. I am constantly munching, especially if it says “Limited Edition” or “New” on the packet. Then, it might as well already be in my mouth!)

They regularly switch up their flavours and add limited edition flavours, and their latest release is Apple Pie. I was a bit dubious about this one. It could either be out of this world good or just plain disappointing.

I needn’t have worried – the explosion of a mouthgasm I had after my first spoonful left my taste buds wanting more and more.

It tasted exactly like an apple pie. I have no idea how they did it, but I was eating an apple pie. The creamy apple and cinnamon flavour melding together in perfect harmony, with a chunk of pie crust here and here, mmmm luscious! I’m drooling on my keyboard just thinking about it.

I’m sure you’ve figured out by now that nothing, not even winter can prevent me from shovelling ice cream into my mouth! (I once sat outside in the freezing cold one January 4th to eat biwa flavoured ice cream. Yes, mad as a hatter, I am, in the very best of ways.)

Without further ado, I shall spam you with pics!

  1. I’ll have to look for this when I’m in Japan next week! My boyfriend is a huge lover of the Ben and Jerry’s apple pie ice cream but they pretty much discontinued it. I’m sure he’ll love hte Haagen-Dazs version.

  2. Omg, I love your writing! Grin-inducing, such a pleasure! Hehe, take a stand girl, refuse the vanilla ice cream! Oh, I would die and go to heaven with green tea Hagen-Dazs… Or KitKat… Oh wow. Plus, I love the thorough photographing. Showing us only the packaging would be cruel and disappointing. Take care!
