I recently spent a whirlwind week in Italy (I know, I know, you wish you had my job!) and fell in love with all things Italian. The awe-inspiring landscapes, the amazing architecture, the quaint sidewalk bistros...and the gelato! If you have never had Italian gelato you have not truly lived and loved. The creamy texture, the amazing flavors, it is like nothing you have ever tasted before. I believe I actually shed a tear when I ate that last spoonful of lemon gelato shortly before boarding my plane home...
So when I heard that Häagen-Dazs® was introducing a line of gelato I was thrilled to say the least. A little taste of Italy, right here at home.
Meet ice cream’s Italian cousin, gelato. The Häagen-Dazs® brand is excited to introduce its newest thoughtfully-crafted offering, Häagen-Dazs Gelato, a smooth indulgence that is surprisingly light on your palate, yet bursting with robust flavors. Häagen-Dazs Gelato will debut with seven Italian-inspired flavors that will transport you to Italy with every spoonful.
Truly made like no other®, Häagen-Dazs Gelato uses only the finest, most essential ingredients to achieve a perfect expression of the Italian experience. Madagascar vanilla, Brazilian coffee, San Francisco sea salt, Oregon cherries and South African lemons are just some of the ingredients used to create rich and creamy gelato flavors like Stracciatella, Sea Salt Caramel, Black Cherry Amaretto and Limoncello that will transport you to Italy with every spoonful.
As the first super premium national brand to offer gelato, extra care was taken to get every detail right. Häagen-Dazs Gelato has a softer texture than regular ice-cream which creates a unique and delicious eating experience that will certainly have your readers going back for more.
Häagen-Dazs Gelato will be available nationwide beginning April 2013 and will feature the following irresistible flavors:
- Stracciatella Gelato - Inspired by the Italian classic, Häagen-Dazs Stracciatella gently folds rich chocolaty shavings into smooth, sweet cream gelato.
- Sea Salt Caramel Gelato - Rich in flavor, Häagen-Dazs Sea Salt Caramel blends ribbons of sea salt caramel into creamy caramel gelato.
- Dark Chocolate Chip Gelato - Decadent and creamy, Häagen-Dazs Dark Chocolate Chip is a perfect blend of bittersweet chocolaty chips in dark chocolate gelato.
- Vanilla Bean Gelato - Elegant in flavor, Häagen-Dazs Vanilla Bean is a blend of rich and creamy vanilla gelato with flecks of vanilla beans.
- Cappuccino Gelato - Bold and complex, Häagen-Dazs Cappuccino is a beautiful blend of cappuccino and sweet cream gelato.
- Limoncello Gelato - Sweet and zesty, Häagen-Dazs Limoncello is a blend of creamy lemon gelato with vodka.
- Black Cherry Amaretto Gelato- Delightfully creamy, Häagen-Dazs Black Cherry Amaretto is a blend of delicious black cherries with amaretto, an Italian liqueur.
