28.January.2020 | FOOD

Häagen-Dazs Japan released two new ice cream flavours countrywide as part of its Crispy Sandwich series today. ‘The Caramel’ will be available throughout the year and ‘Strawberry Truffe’ will be available for a limited time only. 

Caramel is a much-loved flavour all over the world. Now, you can enjoy the sweet and rich flavour of caramel embraced by Japan’s Crispy Sandwich series, which debuted in 2001.

The rich milky taste and sweetness of the caramel ice cream is covered in a milky caramel coating – the perfect treat for anyone who loves caramel. The crispiness of the wafers combined with the smooth, velvety texture of the caramel ice cream is the perfect match. You just won’t be able to stop after your first bite. To celebrate the launch of this new flavour, its packaging has been redesigned, fully showing off the deliciousness sealed inside. 

The Strawberry Truffe is made with mildly sweet and tangy strawberry ice cream layered with mildly sweet ganache sauce. The ice cream is then coated in a fresh pink coat of strawberry chocolate that you won’t be able to resist sinking your teeth into. Strawberry powder is sprinkled into the chocolate coating, adding a luxurious finish to its appearance. The ice cream is sandwiched between two bitter cocoa wafers. From the texture to the flavour, the delicious Strawberry Truffe Crispy Sandwich is to die for.

    14.September.2019 | FOOD

    Häagen-Dazs Japan has announced that it will release two new flavours from its popular hanamochi ice cream series on September 17: “Soybean Flour Brown Sugar Syrup” and “Zunda.”

     

    Soybean Flour Brown Sugar Syrup Hanamochi

    The soybean flour brown sugar syrup hanamochi was released back in 2015 and returned again in 2017. This year, Häagen-Dazs is bringing is back even more delicious than before. They have blended together a variety of soybean flours to elevate the ingredient’s original flavour.

     

    The top of the mochi is sprinkled with a blend of lightly roasted black and yellow soybeans. By roasting them, the original taste and fragrance of the soybean comes through tenfold. Dark roasted soybean has also been combined with milk for a velvety texture, and the entire thing is drizzled in a rich original brown sugar syrup sauce which further enrichens the soybean flavour.

     

    Zunda Hanamochi

    Zunda is sweet soybean paste made from mashed edamame beans and a flavour that has been gaining popularity in Japan in recent years. Häagen-Dazs is incorporating the flavour for the first time in their hanamochi series.

     

    The lumpy texture of the crushed edamame goes deliciously well with the chewy mochi, taking the original authentic taste and texture of edamame to a whole new level. Mixing it with soybeans and rich milk turns it into a smooth ice cream in your mouth. The sauce also contains a sprinkle of salt to bring out the flavour of the zunda.

    The packaging has also been updated, inspired by their flavours and topped with a golden lid, giving it a modern-Japanese appeal. Don’t miss out on these two new flavours.

  • Häagen-Dazs Releases Purple Sweet Potato Tartelette & Rich Pumpkin Ice Cream

    20.August.2019 | FOOD

    Häagen-Dazs just released their new Purple Sweet Potato Tartelettes and Rich Pumpkin mini ice cream cups in Japan. They will be available for a limited time only.

    Purple Sweet Potato Tartelette

    Concealed inside a crispy coating laced with purple sweet potato powder is a rich custard ice cream seeping in a subtly sweet purple sweet potato sauce. A tried and tested treat for autumntime, these crispy ice cream sandwiches not only taste like the sweet purple root vegetable, but they also take on their vibrant colour too.

    Through much trial and error, Häagen-Dazs have been able to create the perfect harmony of flavours between the sweet potato and ice cream. The custard ice cream brings the richness of the egg and lifts the notes of the sweet potato to even greater heavenly heights.

    Rich Pumpkin Mini Cup Ice Cream

    The new pumpkin ice cream is drizzled in a pumpkin sauce packed full of plump pumpkin perfection. And by cooking fresh pumpkin, the flavour is condensed and made even richer, filling your mouth with the gentle sweetness of pumpkin.

    Both the ice cream and the sauce are made with Ebisu pumpkins from Hokkaido. And like the tartelettes, these mini ice cream cups retain that bright original flavour of the squash plant.

     

    Taste the flavours of all with these two new delicious desserts from Häagen-Dazs.

  • Häagen-Dazs Releases Mouthwatering Yuzu Orange Blanc Manger Ice Cream

    This summer, treat yourself to a mild and milky yet fruity and flavourful ice cream.

  • Häagen-Dazs Matcha Salon to Open in Roppongi in April

    22.March.2019 | FOOD

    Häagen-Dazs Japan will opened a matcha-packed Matcha Salon for a limited-time at Roppongi Hills Cafe from April 24 to May 5.

    Häagen-Dazs first arrived in Japan in 1984 and has since been enjoyed for 35 years. To celebrate this landmark, this Matcha Salon will serve up a 6-item green tea course to commemorate the Häagen-Dazs Green Tea ice cream, the first flavour that hit the Japanese market.

     

    After the green tea flavoured ice cream was released Häagen-Dazs went on to serve up flavours developed in America. In coming to Japan the company wanted to create a flavour that more met the demands of Japanese palates, and so they settled on matcha, an ingredient that has been enjoyed in Japan for hundreds of years. Much trial and error was carried out to bring out the creamy flavour of Häagen-Dazs ice cream and matcha bitterness which is what led to the Häagen-Dazs green tea ice cream.

     

    Tea leaf management is no easy task. The flavour of leaves can change completely from various factors such as the weather. To ensure Häagen-Dazs Green Tea could be preserved and made consistently, staff carry out organoleptic tests to create a tea leaf blend that Häagen-Dazs can use.

     

    Since matcha is weak to heat and light, the powdering of the tea leaves is done in a dark room. This is done inside a millstone which does not heat up as easily as metal, ensuring residual heat does not get into the tea leaves. Because of this delicate process, only a dozen or so grams of matcha can be made in one millstone every hour.

     

    Special cups were even developed to package the green tea ice cream which makes it hard for light to get in.

     

    If you’ve yet to try this special ice cream made for Japanese people then make sure you get the chance.

  • Rich and a variety of textures ー my experience of Häagen-Dazs Decorations ♡

    04.March.2019 | FEATURES / FOOD

    Convenience stores are just one of the many places you can buy Häagen-Dazs Decorations limited edition ice cream flavours Almond Caramel Cookie and Matcha cheesecake. The Häagen-Dazs Decorations series is a smooth, rich-flavoured ice cream with delicious toppings to compliment the ice cream.

     

    Once you open the lid, you will see the ice cream sprinkled with cookie pieces. Mix this with the deep-flavoured ice cream and allow yourself to indulge in a new texture.

     

    To understand just how delicious this new ice cream is, you’re just going to have to try it for yourself.

     

    …so I dug straight into both ice creams.

     

    After allowing it to melt slightly, I mixed the cookie pieces with the ice cream.

    The almond caramel cookie ice cream is topped with sliced almond, butter cookie pieces and a drizzling of caramel sauce. The ice cream is caramel butterscotch flavoured. The rich ice cream flavour combined with the crispy almond flakes and crunchy cookie pieces are balanced in perfect harmony.

    I then moved onto the matcha cheesecake! The ice cream is topped with matcha and cheese cookie pieces. The flavour of the cheese cookies with the matcha was a matcha match made in heaven. It was a bit like eating a cheese tart! The ice cream was made using matcha ice cream and cheese ice cream so you can fully enjoy both flavours in one!

     

    A perfect level of bitter matcha and creamy cheese ー each mouthful was like tasting it for the first time!

     

    These two ice creams are only available for a limited time! If you like cookies or almond flakes in your ice cream, this is definitely the ice cream for you!

     

    It’s still a bit chilly these days, but how about taking a moment in your day to enjoy this sweeeeet sweeet ice cream in a warm room?
