Häagen-Dazs is known for their rich, creamy ice creams—and their new non-dairy line is no exception. Unlike other dairy-free ice creams, which often have an icy texture and taste primarily of soy or almond milk, these pints focus on top-notch ingredients to create bold flavors. The new line includes Chocolate Salted Fudge Truffle, Peanut Butter Chocolate, Mocha Chocolate Cookie, and Coconut Caramel.
The Chocolate Salted Fudge Truffle is made with Belgian chocolate, swirls of salted fudge, and chunks of fudge truffle. The Peanut Butter Chocolate has a base of peanut butter ice cream and gets finished with swirls of chocolate fudge. The Mocha Chocolate Cookie combines Belgian chocolate and coffee ice creams, complete with cookie crumble. And the Coconut Caramel is made with coconut cream and ribbons of caramel.
One thing to consider: These new flavors don’t boast the same short ingredient list that the brand's five-ingredient flavors do. While their classic vanilla contains just cream, milk, sugar, eggs, and vanilla, the dairy-free pints contain upwards of 15 ingredients.
Häagen-Dazs isn’t the only mainstream ice cream brand getting into the dairy-free game. Ben & Jerry’s recently added new flavors to their non-dairy line, which now includes Cherry Garcia, Coconut Seven Layer Bar, Caramel Almond Brittle, Chunky Monkey, Chocolate Fudge Brownie, PB & Cookies and Coffee Caramel Fudge. There are a lot of great options at the grocery store, too, from pints to bars to sandwiches.
The Häagen-Dazs pints are available exclusively at Target beginning this month, and will be rolling out to other retailers nationwide in early 2018. Each 14 oz. carton retails for $5.49.
