Häagen-Dazs Raspberry Sorbet

Happy National Fruit Day!! Ok, yeah, I'm sick of the national days, but it just so happens there is a new fruity treat in my freezer. Sherbet gets some mild attention here at second scoop, but to be honest, I don't know if I've ever tried Sorbet, nor do I know the difference offhand (not that I won't look it up in a minute)
So, Häagen-Dazs sorbet was on sale, and since they tend to make top notch stuff, I decided to give it a try (all the Hola Fruta! is gone unfortunately). I take off the lid and the carton is sealed, very nice touch! I get a spoon and dig in. Oh Man, this does not taste good at all. Instead of eating raspberries, it tastes like I'm eating the stems. Oh, I don't like this at all. Texture is ok, like frozen ice, but it tastes like those "good" fruit juices that wind up tasting like bark and not the actual fruit. I have no urge to continue on, spoons down bigtime on this one.

Info: Ahhhh, that's what I figured when I looked at the ingredient list. Sorbets don't use milk, while sherbets tend to use a little bit. Good to know.

On Second Scoop: Ok, going in with lowered expectations. Ok, i was a little harsh I guess, though I still don't love it. I'll probably eat it so it doesn't go to waste, but I can't imagine trying it again. What can I say, I like sweet sherbets, this sorbet's just a bit too 'natural'. I guess it kind of reminds me of one of those unsweetened jellies you can buy.

I have no idea what you are talking about. I'm eating the sorbet right now and it tastes just like raspberries. You've obviously never had REAL sorbet because it NEVER uses milk. That's what sherbet is and only americans are into it

I'm 12 weeks pregnant, and Haagen-dazs sorbet is saving my life right now. it's about the only thing I can eat without puking. I have peach, mango, strawberry, and raspberry in my freezer as we speak.

Haha, well people are different right? I just bought this today after wanting something to have for a snack and maaaaaaaaaaan, this stuff is amazing! It's been a long time since I had sorbet and I can't believe I was missing on this smooth, creamy one! I'm not gonna bash you on not liking it but thanks for the review! I'll be sure to check for your others :P
