Haagen-Dazs Dark Chocolate Mint Ice Cream
By now I think we've probably all seen the purple lidded, limited edition Haagen-Dazs flavors in our local grocery freezers. They were on sale a few weeks back, but midnight cookies & cream wasn't in stock, so I picked up Dark Chocolate Mint. I'm not a huge mint fan, but I do love dark chocolate, so I went for it.
How is it? Well, it's typical Haagen-Dazs. Thick, not to airy, very smooth. The flavor is well, like a chocolate mint. It's a quality mint, nothing cheap here, there's just not a ton to say. There are no surprises, no inclusions, just a very even flavor. You aren't going to get a mint vibe one minute and then dark chocolate the next. it's just dark chocolate mint. Thankfully it's not a menthol-ly mint, just a simple mint. I think it reminds me of Laloo's Rumplemint (a similar flavor, but without the crunch).
That's about all I can say.... maybe I need to figure out what mint ice cream should be paired with, or maybe a nice sundae (with cookie crumbs) is the way to go. I'm just not sure.
