READER REVIEW: Timothy's Review of Haagen Dazs Ginger Molasses Cookie (Artisan Collection)
I love a good ginger snap cookie. In my opinion, its one of the most underrated cookies out there. It may not have as many fans as chocolate chip or peanut butter cookies, but the ginger snap can definitely hold its own. I was browsing the ice cream aisle and I discovered that Haagen Dazs had a ginger snap cookie ice cream, I knew I had to try it!
Haagen Dazs Ginger Molasses Cookie is part of their new Artisan Collection. I had previously tried out their Chocolate Caramelized Oat flavor in this product line and was pretty impressed with these new, unique offerings. The Ginger Molasses Cookie ice cream is described as " ginger molasses cookie pieces mixed into gourmet vanilla cinnamon ice cream".
I opened the pint and discovered that there weren't too many pieces of anything poking through. A few bites in though and that changed. This pint was loaded with little pieces of ginger molasses cookie. First, I took a bite of the cinnamon vanilla ice cream. It reminded me of Ben and Jerry's Oatmeal Cookie Chunk ice cream (One of my favorite flavors ever). The cinnamon taste was present for a bit and then it faded into the rich, smooth vanilla that Haagen Dazs is known for. I really liked the base! The ginger molasses cookie pieces were delicious! They had 2 different kinds of pieces too. One was a little crunchy ball of cinnamon, almost like a cinnamon whopper. The other little pieces/chunks were softer cookie dough. The combo of crunchy pieces and smooth pieces played well together. This is one of those pints that keeps getting better as you eat it! I finished the pint in no time at all.
If you like ginger snaps, you must try this flavor. It was one of the better pints of ice cream I have had in quite some time. It was so good in fact, I have purchased this flavor 3 times in the last 2 weeks. I hope they make this a permanent flavor! Yes, it is that good IMO!
