I truly believe that ice cream is one dish that has had our lives tied together. Right from the time that we are kids, we have discovered this fine dish that created a few of the best years in our lives. Ice cream is eaten by mist and loved by all. So when it comes to a gorgeous ice cream, nothing but the best should be considered. The smooth, rich and creamy texture is what makes an ice cream best because creamier the ice cream, the grander the quality.
To test these parameters, I decided to check out the BEST ice cream parlour in town going by their uptown standards – yes presenting Haagen Dazs in the city of joy.
To talk a little about the brand, Häagen-Dazs is an American ice cream brand, established by Reuben and Rose Mattus in the Bronx, New York, in 1961. The parent company being Nestle, Haagen Dazs by far produces the creamiest and richest ice creams ever.
Häagen-Dazs ice cream comes in several traditional flavors as well as several esoteric flavors that are specific to the brand, such as Vanilla Swiss Almond and Bananas Foster. It is marketed as a “super-premium” brand: it is quite dense (very little air is mixed in during manufacture), uses no emulsifiers or stabilizers other than egg yolks, and has a high butterfat content. It is sold both in grocery stores and in dedicated retail outlets serving ice cream cones, sundaes, and so on.
Let’s check out what we tried at this fabulous outlet that is housed at Quest Mall –
- Chocolate Brownie Exploration
Delicate yet chunky brownies, generously scooped ice cream and tonnes of flavour goes into this simple yet delectable dish. The ice cream is top notch and the brownie’s nutty and chocolaty texture commemorates a beautiful marriage between the two. Hands down winner! The dash of chocolate sauce is an added cherry on top.
- Classic Pancakes with Maple Syrup
Nothing beats a classic. Pancakes are probably the best way to start your day and Haagen Dazs got that right. Light and fluffy pancakes with a dollop of butter and a side of maple syrup to begin the day!
- Belgian Waffle Dream
This is a beautiful dish as well. I personally am a sucker for waffles and this hence proved to be another favourite. Beautifully done up waffles, paired with two scoops of ice cream and drizzled with a lot of caramel sauce – just the perfect pairing. I love how their also give a side of whipped cream and cherries to go with it. They do complete justice to the items they sell.
