rworange loves Häagen-Dazs Five Ginger Ice Cream. It’s made from just five ingredients—milk, cream, sugar, eggs, and ginger—so there are no gums or stabilizers to interfere with the texture. The brown sugar flavor from the same line is disappointing, says rworange. It’s boring and not sweet enough. But the ginger flavor is a big win. It’s “very clean-tasting,” says rworange. “The ginger has great flavor.”

The first ingredient is skim milk, and there are 230 calories per 1/2-cup serving, compared to over 300 per serving in some regular Häagen-Dazs ice creams. “Well, good for them then,” says rworange. “I can’t think of one other light ice cream that doesn’t have stabilizers.”

Miss Needle tried the coffee flavor and says that, minus the corn syrup found in other ice creams, it has a different mouthfeel and texture, but a “cleaner” taste, “more akin to homemade ice cream.”
