Häagen-Dazs ice cream tubs ½ price for the first time seen on catalogue. Enjoy!
Available in the following varieties:
How many tubs of ice cream is an acceptable number to have in the freezer?
In college I had 4 tubs and sold $3 scoops :P
Enough to last until the next special
In college I had 4 tubs and sold $3 scoops :P
That is really enterprising! :-)
Any flavours you can recommend?
Is that still profitable these days?
35? it may or may not be attributed to the fact i was working for unilever.
Can't wait to go to my local Woolworths and find all the Haagen Dazs tubs covered in thick layers of ice and frost on the outside and inside being full of crunchy ice crystals because of poor storage/being left out for ages
More like at full price no one wants them. Hence stashing them for too long in the freezer
These ARE good!
Which flavours do you recommend? Thanks.
Peanut Butter Crunch ftw
Love the strawberry bits in it :)
This flavour is hard to find, to a few Woolworths around my area, still no success.
The peanut butter flavour, on the other hand, is everywhere.
So the volume/price debate kills me. Think half price connoisseur ice cream beats it due to volume & quality.
Conoisseur doesn't even come close. Conoisseur overrun is about 50%, haagen dazs is about 10-12%. Not sure about ingredients, but I suspect haagen dazs probably has more milk fat. This is the best value ice cream deal I've ever seen. Only Ben and jerry's matches haagen dazs in overrun and ingredients.
I wish overrun affected my ability to eat a litre of icecream, would be much easier to evaluate the value of these brands. :P
Can someone explain how this compares to other ice cream brands like Bulla, Sara Lee, and Connoisseur, given that it's over twice the price?
The name of the brand isn't in English.
Except it kinda is, given it's just exotic/foreign sounding fake words dreamed up by an American.
So not English.
@xjaynine: It's a proper noun. What language is it?
I thought it was actually interesting that it's an american brand with a name that means nothing designed to appear foreign to make the food more enticing, especially because it was quite some time ago.
Kind of the clothing equivalent of Super Dry.
@CanadaAye: I am sorry for trying a joke, before fact checking. I will punish myself appropriately.
Twice the price in volume… But this is dense, rich ice cream! Probs similar price on weight to connoisseur.
If you're only going to have a small treat it's worth it if you ask me, the holy grail of ice creams.
Häagen-dazs is my favourite supermarket ice cream. It's so rich and delicious. Connoisseur is great, but this is even better in my opinion. The problem normally is justifying the price - it's not so bad with this deal.
Also if you see it on special, try the Bulla frozen custard tubs. I've never had as creamy "ice-cream" straight out of the freezer, it's delicious.
Just look at the ingredient list. It's actually real ice cream.
Those other ice creams have less milk fat, and higher overrun. Compare the serving size in grams versus the tub volume. You are paying for air so don't use price per volume, use price per weight. Furthermore, the higher density aka lower overrun makes it taste better. There are probably fewer ingredients in haagen dazs as well if you are against fillers etc.
For starters this is top quality ice cream that tastes great. It is worth every penny to actually have something in Australia that tastes good (we have been deprived quality like this and Ben & Jerry's for the majority of my life). When you go live in the US and suddenly your exposed to flavor options and then come back to the convict settlement and can chose between Peters, Bulla and homebrand it's very depressing. I'm amazed our overlords have even allowed us to have this. Bulla is horrific and shouldn't be classed as ice cream (unless you have developed a taste for it somehow over the years). Sara Lee and Connoisseur are acceptable. My attitude is if your going to abuse your body with shite you might as well go for quality over quantity. Life is short. Before Ben & Jerry's came on the scene a few years back I had been dreaming of their choc chip cookie dough. I recently tried the Hagen Das version and it didn't disappoint. Break free from your Aussie convict chains and experience what you've been denied while you can.
Funny that so many American's buy Breyer's "Frozen Dairy Dessert" because it's cheaper, even though you could get a pint of B&J's for a few dollars.
In fairness we don't have chocolate that smells like vomit and tastes worse.
I always thought that Hershey's chocolate tasted like vomit haha
Strawberries and Cream!!! Soooo good, one of the best.
Caramel Biscuit & Cream Speculoos, and Peanut Butter Crunch, also pretty good when i have to share with the Mrs.
How does strawberry compare to sara lee? so sad I'm out of space
I love the Speculoos!!
Can't recall if I've had the Sara Lee Stawberry Ice Cream, will have to next shop, but the Häagen-Dazs Strawberries and Cream is easily the best Strawberry ice cream I've had.
if only they would bring in more flavours sigh
did they stop selling the chocolate one?
Do they have vanilla flavour in tubs? I thought they used to.
They're actually 457ml so you're getting 1ml extra value compared to the title
which one is sweeter? Connoisseur or Häagen-Dazs?
Anyone else notice they mysteriously stopped selling vanilla a little while back? That was the best flavour by far!
Vanilla was great. Amazing to see an icecream with like 4 ingrediants
Yeah it was amazing. They need to bring it back and the chocolate.
I wondered why I'd been unable to get it. Their vanilla was the best. So sad.
You can still get vanilla, chocolate and cookies & cream, but only in the 4 pack:
I always buy those when they are on special.
Valentine's day sorted (I'm single)
Such a pity they remove Belgium Chocolate. That’s one of the best flavour they had.
Since when? No more Belgium choc? Really that's very depressing
IKR,belgium chocolate and vanilla was my indulgence to escape from harsh days, moreover they never imported green tea one… Damn I wanna to go to Japan bevause of this alone…
Wonder why they have 456 ml tubs? Why not have 450 ml or 500 ml(which should be the standard size)
Guessing it's a conversion from oz.
