Häagen-Dazs rolls out a new line of alcohol-infused desserts including five new ice cream flavors.
You won’t need an ID to buy from this boozy collection.
Häagen-Dazs is adding seven new alcohol-infused ice creams to its lineup.
The Spirits Collection is starting to hit store shelves and will be widely available nationwide by April, said Rachel Jaiven, Häagen-Dazs brand manager. The 14-ounce pints and cookie squares have a suggested retail price of $5.29.
Flavors include Irish Cream Brownie, Rum Tres Leches, Vanilla Bean Bourbon Truffle, Non-Dairy Amaretto Black Cherry Almond Toffee and Irish Cream Cookie Squares.
“The Spirits Collection was expertly crafted to offer new, extraordinary ways to indulge,” Jaiven said. “Each flavor is perfect to pair with your favorite cocktail, elevate a boozy float or simply enjoy on its own.”
The ice cream brand has had spirited flavors before, but this is the first collection, Jaiven said.
But you won’t get drunk or feel a buzz from these desserts.
The products have 0.5 percent alcohol by volume, which is the same amount found in a nonalcoholic beer.
“You can indulge freely without any concerns,” Jaiven said.
Starting March 1, two Spirits flavors – Irish Cream Brownie and Vanilla Bean Bourbon Truffle – also will be available at Häagen-Dazs Shops nationwide and served in cups, cones, sundaes or milkshakes.
Jaiven said she expects the Irish Cream Brownie to be one of the most sought-after flavors.
“It was one of the most popular bring-back requests from our consumers,” she said, describing it as an adult version of brownies a la mode. “It’s a nod (to the old version), but we’ve also enhanced it.”
