Haagen Dazs Blueberries & Cream Ice Cream (Fruit Collection)
When this new Blueberries & Cream flavour Haagen Dazs came out I was super eager to try it, although at £4 a tub I thought I would wait until a special offer was on. That offer never came, but by chance Haagen Dazs recently launched some new boxed mini tubs, in both a Caramel Collection and Fruit Collection, as well as a Sorbet Collection. The Fruit Collection contains the likes of Mango & Raspberry, Strawberries and Cream, Summer Berries & Cream and this...a mini tub of the Blueberries & Cream. They cost £2.50 for a box containing two tubs of each flavour, although are no longer on offer in Tesco.
The pots come with a handy plastic spoon beneath the lid, perfect if you buy a box to take to the beach!
The ice cream was of course purple, almost lavendar in colour, with little bits of blueberry mixed in.
It tastes, well, like blueberry ice cream! Something I've never tried before but pretty much as I would expect - there's the subtle blueberry flavour with the creaminess of the ice cream, complimented with yet more fruitier bursts of blueberry bits. It was very nice indeed, refreshing and creamy and would go perfect alongside a dessert...dare I say some blueberry pie?
Overall, as always with Haagen Dazs it's difficult to fault this ice cream. They always use top notch ingredients like fresh cream and whole eggs so they never disappoint, and the blueberry here is just as good as any other fruit flavours they make. If you see the regular large tubs of this on special offer over Summer - buy a tub, you won't regret it!
Stay tuned for reviews of the Strawberries and Cream and Mango & Raspberry varieties...
