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.

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.

Ummm, you'r not complaining about the 14 oz faux pint size are you? because if you are, that happened a really long time ago.
