Has anyone else tried the new flavors from Haagen-Dazs? http://www.haagen-dazs.com/reserve/in...
I got a kit with two pints each of the Lehua Honey and the Toasted Coconut Sesame Brittle flavors and a box of 3 Pomegranate and Dark Chocolate bars. All very tasty! I'm generally not a fan of fruit and chocolate together, but the bars were really tasty. The slight bitterness of the pomegranate went well with the chocolate.
The honey ice cream was pretty good. It's very creamy and has swirls of honey in it. It's incredibly rich and sweet. Very tasty, but I'm not sure I would buy it.
However, I would (and will!) definitely buy the Toasted Coconut Sesame Brittle. I think it is very likely the best ice cream I've ever had. I said this to the friend I was sharing these with and he seemed to think I was exaggerating. Then he tried it and said the same thing. The flavors are amazing and go so well together. I would buy this flavor even if it cost twice as much as other pints.
The "flavor notes" and wine pairings on the website are pretty hilarious, but this is seriously good ice cream.
