It’s easy to imagine the kitchens at Häagen-Dazs as some sort of magical fantasy workshop with hardworking elves creating and experimenting with new and exciting flavours each festive season. This year is no exception, with the great minds behind the flavours coming up with two brand new and thrilling ones now out on the supermarket shelves – the Häagen-Dazs Festive Mochi Flavours, comprising the delightfully rich Cream Cheese Mochi flavour and the decadently robust Tiramisu Mochi flavour.
And while we absolutely loved these innovative flavours eaten straight out of the tub, nothing quite beats heading down to one of their outlets to taste these new festive themed flavours as part of a range of yummy sundae creations!
Häagen-Dazs Festive Mochi Flavours – 2 New Delicious Creations
At first glance, mochi and ice cream may seem like an odd combination. That’s why we were honestly surprised at how well these two ingredients came together, with the chewy mochi bits adding a yummy bite to the frozen goodness of ice cream.
The Häagen-Dazs Cream Cheese Mochi Ice Cream offers delicate hints of cheese, which delivers the authentic, light, velvety taste of a fluffy cheesecake. Between each morsel of ice cream, you will chance upon small, chewy bites of steamed Taiwanese Mochi pieces. The result is a uniquely soft and chewy ice cream indulgence.
The other flavour – Häagen-Dazs Tiramisu Mochi Ice Cream uses real Italian Mascarpone, and again features the delectable steamed Mochi pieces from Taiwan. The pints are priced at $14.50 and individual mini cups at $5.90 and are available nationwide for Haagen-Dazs stores and supermarkets, hypermarkets and convenience stores.
Häagen-Dazs Festive Mochi Flavours – New Winter Explorer Menu
Going beyond just the retail pints, Häagen-Dazs festive mochi flavours have been thoughtfully infused into their new Winter Explorer Menu across their outlets! The So Mochi Together Fondue (46.00 with 2 Selected Coffee or Tea) offers a lovely afternoon tea experience for dates, or a casual gathering with friends. It was quite a sight to behold.
The fondue set comprises mini scoops of Tiramisu Mochi, Cream Cheese Mochi, Vanilla, Belgian Chocolate, White Peach & Raspberry and Green Tea ice cream as well as Mango and Raspberry Sorbet, as well as a range of fruits, cookies and cakes. Dunking the ice cream and other goodies into the yummy dark chocolate ganache was surprisingly satisfying.
Feeling adventurous, we ordered a Bistro Paris ($21.90) too. The cheesecake was accompanied by Cream Cheese Mochi and Macadamia Nut Ice Cream as well as Raspberry Sorbet. The raspberry sorbet provided the balance to finish off the sweetness from both the cake and the ice creams.
