I'm all for the healthy lifestyle, or more specifically, the perks one brings. I want energy, clear skin, a long life expectancy, blah, blah, blah. But here's my problem: I also want ice cream. And while the lower-calorie "light" variants usually don't do it for me, Häagen-Dazs is launching its own version with damn-near the same taste of a regular pint, but only a third of the calories.
The new "Heaven" collection features four flavors (more on those in a sec) that are made with 25% less sugar and half the fat of regular ice cream. The recipe also features ultra-filtered milk, no artificial sweeteners, and no GMO ingredients.
Alright, now to the fun stuff: how the new ice creams actually taste. The Chocolate Sea Salt Caramel flavor is a "dreamy" chocolate ice cream with ribbons of sea salt caramel. Strawberry Waffle Cone is brimming with strawberries and crunchy chocolate-covered waffle cone pieces. Meanwhile, Peanut Butter Chip has a smooth vanilla ice cream with swirls of peanut butter and chocolate chips. And Cold Brew Espresso Chip is a coffee flavor with decadent chocolate espresso chips.
