Last week I received a delivery. That in itself is nothing unusual. What was unusual about this delivery is that the contents were packed on dry ice. What was in the box? Was it the greatest test of my willpower I’ve ever encountered? Was it a new product that Mom Central wanted my opinion on? Answer yes on both counts.

Häagen-Dazs is a well known brand of ice cream that I have always enjoyed and found to be rich and delicious. The latest edition to the Häagen-Dazs family, the Häagen-Dazs, is more of what you expect from Häagen-Dazs, and less. Häagen-Dazs Five is a new ice cream consisting of only five ingredients. Häagen-Dazs Five ice cream gives you more of the delicious premium taste you expect from Häagen-Dazs even though it has fewer ingredients. Each of the flavors in the Five line have four natural ingredients in common – milk, cream, sugar and eggs, as well as one all natural individual flavor as well as one natural distinct flavor. The line consists of seven flavors – mint, ginger, passion fruit, brown sugar, vanilla bean, coffee and milk chocolate. The Häagen-Dazs Five series is in stores now and retail for $4.29.

I received four of the new flavors to try – brown sugar, mint, ginger and passion fruit. I’m on a pre-surgical diet so I couldn’t eat ice cream like I normally would. Good thing for the RB, because that meant he got some too. I only allowed myself to try one flavor a day and only had two baby spoons of each flavor, definitely making this the hardest review I’ve ever done. A few things struck me about the Five line. First is the texture and flavor. There was no grit or funky texture, the ice cream was very smooth. I was able to taste each of the individual natural flavors clearly without them being overwhelming. And almost unbelievably, the ice creams are made with skim milk! That means they have less fat. RB liked the passion fruit best, followed by the mint. He really wants to try the coffee and the vanilla bean flavors. I couldn’t decide which was my favorite – the brown sugar or the mint. The brown sugar was warm and tasted just like the brown sugar you use when cooking. The mint was really cool and flavorful. I really want to try the milk chocolate and the vanilla bean flavors.

WIN IT!
