Haagen-Dazs Vanilla Blackberry Chocolate Trio Ice Cream
layers of crispy Belgian chocolate, vanilla & blackberry ice cream
The vanilla ice cream is no match against the blackberry ice cream. Unless you get a really high ratio of vanilla to blackberry on your spoon (say 80/20), it's just going to taste like a really nice, high quality black raspberry ice cream on your spoon.
My only mild critique of this flavor would be in terms of the aftertaste. I can't tell if all the components come together just a little strange on the backend. Could just be me being me.
Overall, I definitely enjoyed this one and could have easily eaten more than I did. I was hoping this might be my favorite of the trio lineup and I think it might be. This one just works really well as a trio flavor and now that I think about it, it kind of reminds me of H-D's excellent pomegranate ice cream bars. Well done.
On Second Scoop: Wow, that was even more enjoyable on the second try. I almost ate 2/3 of the container without even thinking. I love the sound of that crunch as you dig through such a delightfully flavored ice cream. Yes I am totally biased on saying this is better than salted caramel because this is my thing. Make sure you try at least one of the Trio flavors.
Verdict? very enjoyable
Buy Again? YES! Possibly on the way home.
