Haagen-Dazs Caramel Swirl Gelato (Asda) By @Cinabar

Haagen-Dazs Caramel Swirl Gelato

It is the time of year where new ice creams are starting to launch. This seasonality is an issue for me as I drink hot chocolate and eat ice cream all year. I will take the opportunity to top up my freezer with some new goodies though, and one of the new things I couldn’t resist was this Haagen-Dazs Caramel Swirl Gelato. The ice creams, well yes actually gelato, come in a four pack and each one has a plastic spoon in the lid for that added “I’m at the theatre” feel.

We decided to try these as a dessert during the week, and it was only after I took them out of the box I realised I was supposed to let them warm up for 5-10 minutes before eating. The posher the ice cream the less air is whipped into them, so the firmer they are out of the freezer. Gelato is churned at a slower rate so has even less air so needs the most time.
When it had softened a little I gave it the Haagen-Dazs Caramel Swirl Gelato the taste test. I have too say I was very impressed, the ice cream tasted very creamy and sweet, and the caramel was lovely. The swirls of sauce meant that the mouthfuls varied in terms of the caramel balance and this kept the ice cream interesting to eat. The ice cream tubs only have 150 calories, which makes it a reasonable treat even if you are watching what you are eating. I have to say I was so impressed by the Haagen-Dazs Caramel Swirl Gelato I’ve added another box to my next online order.
