Haagen-Dazs Spirits Line Up

[New for 2019] Everyone remembers I rarely like alcohol inspired flavors right? And yet, I bought one of these new spirit inspired Haagen-Dazs flavors anyway as an excuse to bring you some news but also a bit of hands on experience. Well, I took one bite, spit it out, and called it a day. Let's see if you can guess which one I tried?

Haagen-Dazs Spirits Ice Cream lineup
 Rum Tres Leches  -  Irish Cream Brownie
Bourbon Vanilla Bean Truffle  -  Stout Chocolate Pretzel Crunch

In all, there are six pints and one cookie square. One of the pints is actually this non-dairy Amaretto black cherry almond toffee flavor which continues the H-D tradition of spreading out their non-dairy offerings across all of their product sub-categories.

This is the Irish Cream cookie square and this probably would have been a safer choice, but they didn't have it when I bought....

Yes, I bought the one with pretzels, are you even a little surprised? Come on, I've been here for almost 11 years, you know me better by now. It seemed like a safer bet but this one is not a hint of stout, no, it was a punch in my taste buds of stout. I did not expect it to bowl me over that badly. I actually spit it out. Calling me a lightweight if you want, but the taste buds want what the taste buds want, and they don't want this. That was a waste of five bucks!

On Second Scoop: It may never happen hehehehe

Verdict?  I knew better
Buy Again?  no way

As you know from our back and forth posts, I made the same choice and regretted it. So much alcohol flavor! I did appreciate the crunchy pretzels and almost threw the rest out myself. I did rally and get the irish cream pint which was still very strong but very delicious. I won't be going back for a third.

I feel the same way as you! I don't even like the alcohol filled chocolates on the market. I won't be trying this line.

@D: so I would have lost out no matter what? Ok, not buying any more!

Guinness is my drink of choice, and that stout base was WAY too much! And the pretzel blobs were a weird texture and too big. I hated it!

The rum one is very mild. Barely tasted the rum. I didn't particularly like the stout one and I like beer. It was more the chocolate, that got to me. And I love chocolate, just not in an ice cream.
