Blueberry and spiced peach crumble ice cream flavors usher in summer
Saturday 04 June 2011
Haagen-Dazs has launched a new line of limited edition ice cream flavors inspired by food epiphanies.
The kind that are associated with feel-good moments like a caramel candied apple at a summer fair, a spiced peach crumble at the height of peach season, and a cranberry pumpkin spice ice cream to usher in the colors and tastes of fall.
Moments like a "a slice of holiday pie, a bite of fresh fruit from the orchard, a visit to the ice cream parlor, a trip to India," the company says.
The premium range of ice creams is described like a fine wine, complete with tasting notes that include "top notes," and "finishing notes" that try to convey the complexity of flavors.
Here's an abbreviated look at the range:
Caramel Apple Pie Ice Cream
Apple ice cream, diced fresh apple, caramel and chunks of pie crust
Blueberry ice cream with cobbler crust crumbles
Cranberry Pumpkin Spice
Pumpkin ice cream with swirls of cranberry filling, spiced with cinnamon and nutmeg
Sweet Chai Latte
Chai tea ice cream with top notes of cinnamon, cloves, cardamom and anise
Spiced Peach Crumble
Lightly spiced peaches stirred into sweet cream ice cream with nuggets of buttery crust, available exclusively at Walmart.
They've also launched a range of sundae cones like vanilla chocolate and vanilla caramel, and a chocolate almond frozen yogurt.
Their newest addition to sorbets is a Blackberry Cabernet Sorbet, a dark, intense sorbet flavored with ripe blackberries and the distinctive notes of cabernet grapes.
Meanwhile, Ben & Jerry's is also known for creating new, innovative flavors inspired by some of the most unlikely sources. Their newest flavor, Bonnaroo Buzz, for example, is a coffee and malt ice cream with toffee chunks and a whiskey caramel swirl, named after The Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival in Tennessee.
Their new Clusterfluff flavor, is likewise meant for days when "everything's stuck in a cluster of flub-ups, fubars and snafus," a "no-fun phenomenon" that needs its own flavor. Clusterfluff, is a peanut butter ice cream with caramel clusters and peanut butter and marshmallow swirls.
Haagen-Dazs flavors are currently available on store shelves in the US and are available until September, with the exception of the Blueberry Crumble which will be available until December. A 14-oz carton (400 g) has a suggested retail price of $4.69, while their five-cone cartons are $5.49.
