Haagen-Dazs Toasted Sesame Brittle Ice Cream
toasted sesame ice cream with honey cardamom sesame brittle pieces
The biggest question on this flavor seems to be "what is toasted sesame brittle?". Have I had it specifically? I'm not positive, though I think I may have had something similar.
Great opening shot (looks like a honey granola flavor)
To jump right in to it, let me just say that I like this flavor. There is a sweetness to it and you may get a thought of crunch and munch or other caramel popcorn treat here and then. Add that in to the excellent quality and flavored base and it made for a nice afternoon snack that I could have easily inhaled.
I'm guessing you will find this one oddly familiar. Whether you remember having sesame products or not, you will remeber the flavor once you've had it.
Do I recommend this one? Ofcourse, unless you have a think against sesame seed. Like I said, there is a really nice sweetness to it. Not a straight up sugar sweetness, but one that goes oh so very well with the texture of an premium all natural ice cream. Fun times indeed.
On Second Scoop: dear blogger, where did the second scoop I typed out last night go? Uggg. What I pointed out was that when I mention a kind of cracker jack vibe to it, that also implies a bit of peanut vibe to the flavor as well (as crackerjack has peanuts). To put it another way, if you've ever had sunbutter or some other toasted seed spread, the flavor is kind of reminiscent of that as well. It's a top notch texture, it's got a fun sweetness to it, it's got plenty of bits, and it's unique. If you need something different in the freezer, don't be afraid to give this a shot.
