READER REVIEW: Timothy's Review of Haagen Dazs Belgian Chocolate (Destination Series)


Decided to pick up another pint of Haagen-Dazs "Destination Series" today and I went with the Belgian Chocolate pint. This one is described as "Our Belgian chocolate combines rich, velvety chocolate ice cream with finely shaved Belgian chocolate for a uniquely textured experience". I took the pint out to my car and dug in. Here is how it was............


I took the lid off the pint and noticed the nice smooth base with a few chocolate shavings peeking through the top. I took a bite in and was instantly in heaven! This ice cream was incredibly smooth...just like they describe it, "velvety". If you have ever had a Belgian chocolate bar, you know how incredibly smooth and rich they are. This ice cream was an exact replica! Incredibly good chocolate flavor. It was so smooth, that it first reminded me of almost a marshmallow consistency, but that soon faded away as the ice cream melted in my mouth. The "shavings" they use in this ice cream are perfect, too! They are small enough to easily melt in the mouth with little chewing effort, but large enough to let you know they are there. They are the perfect compliment to this ice cream and provide excellent texture. Any larger chunks wouldn't work. The chocolate flavors were so rich and the textures were so smooth, one should probably only eat half a pint in a sitting. Being the ice cream connoisseur that I am, I rarely leave ice cream behind, so I polished off the pint in record time. It was fantastic!


Overall, this was one of the best chocolate ice creams I have ever sank my teeth into. It was definitely the best "Destination Series" pint that I have sampled, and overall, one of the best pints of any flavor I have had in quite some time. I am definitely buying this again and I hope they keep this in their current flavor rotation. It was excellent!
