Häagen-Dazs just released four non-dairy ice cream flavors, adding to the fast-growing selection of vegan desserts. Sink your spoon into Chocolate Salted Fudge Truffle, Peanut Butter Chocolate Fudge, Mocha Chocolate Cookie, and Coconut Caramel.
The Häagen-Dazs website says the new flavors have “a creamier texture and an authentic taste that shines through.”
- Chocolate Salted Fudge Truffle has Belgian chocolate base and contains soy.
- Peanut Butter Chocolate Fudge is made from ingredients like corn syrup, sugar and peanuts and is soy-, almond-, and cashew-free.
- Mocha Chocolate Cookie also has a Belgian chocolate base and is nut free, but does include soy and wheat. The other three flavors are gluten free.
- Coconut Caramel seems like the cleanest of the bunch as far as ingredients and allergies go. The first ingredient is coconut cream. It does not include any soy, wheat or peanuts.
“While most non-dairy options simply start by substituting soy, almond or cashew milk, every flavor in our new collection begins with a core ingredient, like real pieces of Belgian chocolate, actual peanut butter, or real coconut cream,” says the website.
Although the packaging does not explicitly use the word “vegan,” all the ingredients are in fact animal- and cruelty-free.
Häagen-Dazs has followed the lead of other major brands like Ben & Jerry’s and Breyers, who have both released vegan flavors.
These non-dairy flavors are sold exclusively at Target stores in the U.S.
