expired ½ Price Haagen-Dazs Ice Cream 3-Pack $5 @ Coles

900

Repeat of this popular deal from a few months ago. Starts Jan 9. Enjoy :)

Häagen-Dazs is an ice cream company founded in 1961 by Reuben and Rose Mattus, two Jewish-Polish immigrants, in the Bronx, New York. Starting out with only selling three flavors; vanilla, chocolate, and coffee, the two opened their first retail store in Brooklyn, New York, on November 15th, 1976. Later, with great success, the company offered franchises throughout 55 countries, including all of the permanent members of the Security Council of the United Nations.

The name Häagen-Dazs is not derived from any North-Germanic languages; in fact, it is meant to look like Scandinavian to Americans, despite the fact that such letter combinations as "äa" and "zs" do not exist in Scandinavian. In Dutch, however, double vowels are common, though the particular combination of "äa" is rarely used. Häagen is directly translated into "of the Hague" in Dutch. The "Dazs" part of the name, however, does not exist in any languages except Hungarian. Reuben Mattus's daughter, Doris Hurley, revealed that her father spent time at their kitchen table for hours uttering aloud nonsensical words until he came up with a combination of two words that he liked because Mattus wanted the name to be unique and original.

    I’ve tried the salted caramel version. First thing you’ll notice is how small the ice creams are. They’re also quite rich and sweet, but not too bad. However, they would not be worth it for $10/3pk

      The dark chocolate outside was too dark and bitter, overtook the flavour of the ice cream which was excellent.

    Wow, this is 2018's GOAT ice-cream, have to try :)

    both flavours are very nice and good at $5.

    I don't mind paying for quality or if I really like something however they are definitely not worth $10 for 3.

    Hey guys lets give an odd number of ice creams in packaging so they can't be shared evenly. Better yet lets include 1 less ice cream than the average number of family members in a house hold.

    80mls per ice cream so 240ml of ice cream for $10 lolol. Better off buying Ben and Jerrys which is much nicer and almost double the volume for the same price

    Prefer their ice cream over Connoisseur but was underwhelmed by the sticks when I gave them a try recently. Quite thin chocolate shell. Connoisseur still reigns supreme in the stick department even though they're subtly worse than when they first came out.

    It's cost per 100mls that looses me. I'd rather quantity of acceptable ice cream rather than quality. Good price though

    These are nice, but I prefer the Aldi 14 pack ice-cream for $4 (or $3 on sale)

      haha are you really comparing these to a $4 14pk Aldi ice cream?

        Hey some people prefer Blend 43 to real coffee, have to cut them a little slack.

      •  

        Yes, I normally eat 2 or 3 in one go and have plenty left over. I mean these taste good, but not 3 for $5 good.

        I went to the Grampians a week ago and there's an ice cream shop (lots of halal ice cream for any concerned) and it was like $6 for 1 scoop waffle cone, $7 for 2 and $8 for 3. I didn't hesitate getting 2 or 3 scoops everyday because that was some of the best ice cream I've had in a long time.

      Aldi has NZ brand Kapiti ice creams at the moment (not an Aldi-owned brand). The chocolate-covered boysenberry minis are superb.

    Do Coles stock the peanut butter crunch variety, like woolies do? I could’ve sworn I’ve seen it in the freezer section at Coles too..?

      Yes, saw it at Coles today. Will be buying the peanut butter flavour when special starts on Wed!

      •  

        Thanks, I’ll make sure to pop in and buy it too!

        •  

          Quite like the peanut butter variant. Definitely will not buy at full price but would be the treat at half price! I heard the coles brand peanut butter one was good too but looks like discontinued.

          Anyone can recommend good peanut butter ice cream?

    I can't believe Australia imports ice cream?!!! why??

    •  

      is under Nestlé anyway

    •  

      Simple - because production costs in Australia are extremely high and are not competitive with other countries.

      •  

        Yes, we have award wages and acceptable conditions for our citizens. A byproduct of buying these consumables is that we are supporting it.

        It's hard to justify spending more for Aussie products but we don't see where these products are made nor the conditions for their employees.

        Sorry for the rant lol

          Rant worth ranting about.

          Aussie products can be better in many cases - e.g. try a Weiss bar over these. Cheaper and better quality IMO ($6.80 4 pack full price at Woolies). Made with real mango and macadamia nuts.

      The same reason anything else is imported, quality and/or manufacturing costs?

        A very quick google shows me http://harrysicecream.com/ Australian made and owned. 100% Australian dairy. $6 RRP for 520ml = $11.50 per litre

        Haagen dazs at $10 RRP for 240ml = $41.66 per litre

          It can be crafted on Mars with extraterrestrial dairy for all I care, it's all about the taste.

          Plus, why stop there when you can get 4L of Woolies brand ice cream for $5.20!?

            @Lorindor: Now you are comparing apples to oranges, home brand plain vanilla tub to premium flavoured ice cream.

            Have you tried Harry's ?
            Ive had the Triple choc brownie and Sticky date pudding and couldn't recommend it more highly.

            •  

              @Fincky: I'm sure they're delicious, but so is Haagen-Dazs, and price shouldn't always be a deciding factor (especially for ice-cream).

              •  

                @Lorindor: Yeah and im not basing it on price, Lorindor bought up manufacturing costs.

                I'm saying, why in the bloody flaming strewth are we importing ice cream from France when we have Australian made and owned from Australian products.

                  If a product is good enough, why not export it and share it with the world?

                  •  

                    @Lorindor: Because many other countries ban or heavily tax imports for industries that they are a prime producer in.

                    Australia would be considered prime producer in Dairy.

                    Exporting isn't always about quality or taste. More than not its just branding.

                      I'm not quite sure why this is an issue if it's a decent product, plus as an Australian it's normal to be taxed for everything.

      The old cultural cringe that seems to affect some Aussies unfortunately. Some of the best dairy products in the world in this neck of the woods, mainly grass fed for a start…

  •  

    Love the mango, raspberry and white chocolate flavour. But it’s only worth it when it’s $5.

  •  

    These are just average. Really small too, and they only give you three compared to 4 pack from other brands for similar price. I tried them today and will not buy again.

    I expected the ice cream to be as dense as their tubs. It's not and is quite aerated.
