Yes so remember I mentioned my diet was going well? I think PRs must sense this and then want to send me treats. But these new Häagen-Dazs Secret Sensations icecreams are well worth being a bit naughty for.
I was sent these new Häagen-Dazs flavours to review through the Häagen-Dazs program. It’s pretty neat actually, when I joined the program they sent me a USB stick shaped like a Häagen-Dazs tub (it’s amazing, everyone at work is envious!) and a scoop plus some gorgeous Cowshed goodies! Last week I was sent these by courier and I was so worried because even though Mr LTT works at home, he was going to be out at meetings on the day they were going to arrive. This meant I had to have them delivered to work where there’s no freezer and I thought they’d be melted by the time I got home and have good light to photograph by. I needn’t have worried! It arrived on dry ice which I’d never seen before and although I cheekily ate one of the chocolate fondant ones at lunch and opened the box, they were still really really frozen by the time I got home and finally got them in the freezer!
So the new flavours…the first is chocolate fondant. The chocolate icecream is quite rich but the mini cup is just the perfect size portion to make sure you don’t overdo it.
There’s little brownie pieces sprinkled through the icecream and rich chocolate sauce centre. I liked working my way from the outside to the inside and getting lots of sauciness at the end.
The thing I really love about Häagen-Dazs ice cream is that it’s got such a smooth flavour, the chocolate is really good quality, exactly what you want and because it doesn’t melt quickly I had time to savour every mouthful!
My favourite of the two (and that doesn’t mean that the chocolate fondant wasn’t delicious because IT TOTALLY WAS) is the Crème Brûlée.
It’s vanilla flavour with crunchy bits of caramel just like the crispy top on a traditional Crème Brûlée and then, just like the chocolate fondant one, there’s a saucy centre which in this one is caramel sauce.
Both flavours are sexy-licious. Yeah I just made that word up, but when you try them you’ll completely agree with me! They’re available now and you can buy them in packs of two x 100ml (RRP £3.29) or single 100ml tubs (RRP £1.99).
