I Scream, You Scream...
The other day I had a ravenous craving for come warm chocolate cookies with vanilla bean ice cream. I didn’t fight it – I went to the supermarket. I’ve never cared for regular vanilla ice cream, but vanilla bean is on a whole other level. On my quest I came across Haagen-Dazs’s new Five product line of ice cream. In their commercials they claim that they only use five ingredients. I rarely eat Haagen-Dazs so I decided to give it a try.
I tested it while my cookies were baking in the oven and it turns out – it’s really good. The vanilla bean flavor is really prominent and you can taste the cream. It also has a really smooth and rich flavor as well. I was pleasantly surprised, and in heaven at that point. There is nothing better than getting exactly what you are craving when you are craving it. I plan on trying the other flavors as well at some point.
And I did check the ingredient list and there were only five ingredients: milk, cream, sugar, eggs and vanilla.
