NEW! Ice Cream Cupcakes at Häagen-Dazs

December 21, 2008

Beginning last week, Häagen-Dazs began selling
ice cream cupcakes at select retail stores.
Before viewing the annual Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade,
we stopped at Fashion Island for dinner.
As we walked by Häagen-Dazs, near the courtyard fountain
I saw the “Cupcakes” sign and just had to check it out.

I swear, I’ve developed cupcake radar.

The employees at the Fashion Island Häagen-Dazs store were kind enough to
allow me to photograph the sign and cupcakes in the freezer.
The ice cream cupcakes have delectable eye appeal.

A Cheesecake Cupcake was given to me to sample.
It was enjoyable, but cold and very rich.
I’m not a big ice cream person.
Vanilla Ice Cream with Graham Cracker Crumbs and a Strawberry.
Honestly, I didn’t get the sense of eating a cheesecake cupcake.
But it did taste good. Häagen-Dazs is known for their rich creamery ice cream

Retail price $4.50 per cupcake.
Prices may vary per region.

So far, the cupcakes aren’t featured on the corporate website.


The introductory flavors are:

Chocolate Malt
Classic Sundae
Dulce de Leche
Cheesecake
Mocha Torte
Seasonal

Cupcakes are definitely here to stay!

P.S. Häagen-Dazs has good customer service. See, below.
