Häagen-Dazs Spirits Ice Cream

The tendency to infuse alcohol into food is an ancient concept but there are still modern and novel ways to explore this taste treat.  While it has been a boutique item for some time, Häagen-Dazs has brought liquor-infused ice cream to the mainstream and served it up in pints at the grocery store.

The Häagen-Dazs Spirits Ice Cream Line has unleashed five delightful and distinctive flavors: Rum Vanilla Caramel Blondie, Whiskey Chocolate Truffle, Irish Cream Coffee & Biscotti, Vodka Key Lime Pie, and Rum Ginger Cookie.  As you would expect of a premium ice cream maker like Häagen-Dazs, these are not flavored with extracts or artificial flavorings but are infused with real alcohol. No need to worry about getting drunk off your ice cream though, the Häagen-Dazs Spirits Ice Cream is still under 1% ABV.

Unfortunately for the rest of the world, this flavorful dessert is currently only being offered in Canada and their brick and mortar location in New York City.
