Häagen-Dazs: Mint Leaves & Chocolate Ice Cream

Häagen-Dazs have released Mint Leaves & Chocolate as a new flavour for 2012. The packaging is fairly subdued and upmarket, with a simple burgundy and gold design and a picture of the ingredients which really emphasises their quality. I usually associate mint ice cream with the brightly green coloured cheap kind so I am pleased to see a premium version of this classic flavour.  I also love the fact that this ice cream contains real mint leaves and natural mint flavour.

The first thing I notice is that the mint ice-cream is not lurid green at all but a lovely creamy colour full of chocolate fudge pieces. The initial flavour that hits you is the creamy taste of the ice cream that you would expect from  Häagen-Dazs. The mint was quite subtle and didn't pack a punch as I was expecting.  It is not overpowering at all and is perfectly balanced with the creamy ice-cream. There are also lots of small chocolate pieces throughout the ice cream. They are dark chocolate which is always a great combination with mint. Overall this Mint Leaves & Chocolate ice cream is very refreshing and perfect for hot summer days.

Have you tried this flavour, what did you think of it? I would love Häagen-Dazs to release a Banana ice-cream flavour next!
