Haagen-Dazs Launches New Artisan Collection Ice Cream

Haagen-Dazs looks get a bit fancier with their new Artisan Collection of ice cream. The brand has worked in partnership with six artisans from around the country to come up with six corresponding flavors that capture some of their creations.

According to the brand, they evaluated over 100 artisan products before settling on the six artisans featured.

Here are the six flavors and the artisans that inspired them:

- Tres Leches Brigadeiro - Paula Barbosa of My Sweet Brigadeiro in New York, worked with Häagen-Dazs to deconstruct her Happy Couple brigadeiro--basically a Brazilian bonbon/truffle --to make a sweetened condensed milk and cocoa sauce, which is then swirled it into tres leches ice cream.

- Banana Rum Jam - A vanilla bean ice cream with a banana, rum and lime swirl inspired by Drunken Monkey jam (a variant of Bananas Foster) from The Jam Stand in Brooklyn, New York.

- Chocolate Caramelized Oat - Chocolaty, caramelized oat clusters in caramel ice cream made in collaboration with San Francisco’s Clairesquares and inspired by their caramelized oat bars, drizzled in chocolate.

- Spiced Pecan Turtle - Chocolaty-spiced pecans and swirls of caramel in chocolate ice cream, made in partnership with Christopher Elbow Artisanal Chocolate in Kansas City, Missouri and inspired by their spiced pecan turtle chocolates.

- Ginger Molasses Cookie - Vanilla cinnamon ice cream with ginger molasses cookie pieces inspired soft-baked ginger molasses cookies from The Good Batch in Brooklyn, New York.

- Applewood Smoked Caramel Almond - Haagen-Dazs worked with Cruz Caudillo of Praline Patisserie in San Diego, California to come up with swirls of applewood-smoked caramel and roasted, salted almonds in sweet cream ice cream.

Haagen-Dazs Artisan Collection is currently being rolled out and should be available nationwide by April 2015. All flavors come in 14-oz cartons with a suggested price of $5.29. Tres Leches Brigadeiro also comes in 3.6-oz cups with a suggested price of $1.49 each.
