Haagen-Dazs Ice Cream Smoothie: Raspberry and Summer Berries (Morrison’s)


I wouldn’t necessary think of mixing sorbet and ice cream, I usually go for one or the other, but Haagen-Dazs’s idea for summer is to blend the two.
When I opened the tub, I discovered that the sorbet and the ice cream were swirled together. The ice cream was a light pinkish purple colour and the sorbet a bright pink, and they looked very tempting in the tub. The ice cream element tasted mainly of blueberries and was very creamy and mellow, where as the sorbet consisted of a sweet and sharp raspberry taste. Each of the two flavours would work perfectly on their own, but I thoroughly enjoyed the combination. The ability to mix creamy and zingy flavours really worked for me, and I am looking forward to trying the other variety of Mango and Apricot.

I really like sorbet and icecream swirled together. I like the tartness of the fruit and the creaminess of the icecream complimenting each other. One word for this product: Yum

Iknow what you mean, I just love mixed flavours. Think that is why I liked the El Tequito Vanilla Ice Cream with Ginger/Strawberry so much too.

It is lovely, hope they keep stocking it a bit longer (I fear it is a Summer special).
