Alrightly, it's time for the flavor I anticipated most out of the new Haagen-Dazs Destination Series line up. I know it sounds simple, but we don't have a good H-D brownie flavor right now. In my mind, the sky is the limit here!
Haagen-Dazs Brownies a la mode Ice Cream
vanilla ice cream with fudge and brownie piece
Mmmmm, so inviting!
Part of me wanted brownie swirls, but we get typical blocks instead.
Ok, yeah, I'm confused. I thought this would be my very favorite of the seven new flavors but it's not really wowing me. Granted, I hold H-D to amazingly high standards, but I expected a brownie punch in every bite. Well, that last bite was close to what I expected... and then that next bite had too much swirl. Apparently I'm not a fan of their fudge swirl.
And I'm done. Their were a decent amount of brownie pieces, and they are a decent size, but their flavor is no match for the fudge sauce. This is called brownies a la mode and while the fudge sauce should be a factor, the brownies should be number one here.
Ha, my daughter wasn't impressed either, seems like the fudge got to her as well. Let's sleep on it and see how we feel about it next time.
On Second Scoop: I take my few bites and sure enough, that fudge swirl is still front and center. Yes, more or less it's brownies a la mode, but I so wanted the brownie factor to be epic and then have a rich vanilla base and fudge swirl in support. Quality is fine but if I'm looking for brownies, I'm going to go somewhere else.
Verdict? amp up the brownie factor!
