READER REVIEW: Timothy's Review of Haagen Dazs Chocolate Caramelized Oat (Artisan Collection)


After seeing a commercial for Haagen Dazs new Artisan collection, I knew I had to try some of them out. They have 6 new flavors but I was only able to find 5 of them at my Walmart. I decided to try out the Chocolate Caramelized Oat pint. This ice cream is described as "Chocolaty, caramelized oat clusters, blended into caramel ice cream". It was pretty darn tasty!


I opened the pint and noticed that it had a nice caramel color to it and a few pieces of chocolate covered oat clusters peeking out of the top. I dug my spoon in and got a few of those little chunks. First bite in, I realized that this tasted pretty similar to Haagen Dazs Caramel Cone flavor. Replace the pieces of waffle cone with oat clusters and that is what you have here. The caramel ice cream was fantastic! It had a nice smooth bite to it and a sweet caramel taste. The oat clusters were pretty small but they were plentiful.


As I got more into the pint, I liked the different surprise flavors that were in each oat cluster, too. Some of the clusters were crunchy and gritty like a piece of granola, while other ones were brittle and sweet like a piece of toffee. I finished the pint and was completely satisfied! The only negative of this ice cream was that the chocolate coating on the pieces of oats did not really stand out. The caramel ice cream was the "strong" flavor in this pint. Overall it was a really good pint though. If you are a fan of their Caramel Cone flavor, you have to try this out. You will like it!
