OHMouthGasm. OMG now has a new meaning. You heard it hear first and don’t forget it. And it is linked up to ice cream…of course. I thought it would be chocolate at least. Alas no….
Flashback to childhood (mine that is)
I hated HATED anything that was almond flavored. Amaretto made me zuke just thinking about it. LOATHED it, couldn’t stand the smell of it in perfume, food, nothing.
Fast forward to the 21st century, I can’t get enough of it. I lurvvvs it, my precious. I mean, I will try anything with the words almond or amaretto on it now. LOL Don’t worry I’m not hitting the Disaronno the doctors say I can’t booze it up anymore because of my heart (bastages) living in a DRY county (some bastards idea of a cruel and unusual punishment) doesn’t help either but I digress to the new and OMG taste pleasure at hand.
So, we happened to innocently end up in the ice cream aisle “in town” because the selection is always better at the wally world “in town”. And they had MUCHO selectiono of Ben & Jerry’s and Haagen Dazs including this new (to me anyways) Amaretto Almond Crunch – Description (borrowed from their website): crispy almond brittle enveloped in smooth amaretto ice cream creates a rich and crunchy sensation. Oh please, people it was this and much much more!
What I like about Haagen Dazs is that they don’t overstuff their overpriced ice cream with too much crap. Now, don’t get me wrong, I loves me some B&J but the pieces are getting so big in their ice cream, sometimes I can’t find the damn cream! Anyways, it was a perfect blend of just enough bits and sweet creamy amaretto ice cream. Rich? OMGasm so rich…. I should have stopped at the first 4 or 5 bites and left the pint to somebody else or for later.
*shameface* (sung to the tune of Lady Gaga’s poker face)
Guess who had a sick stomach? ME. Walk of blog shame, I ate the whole pint. Man I am still feeling it today. I haven’t been eating as much sugar and junk stuff for the last month or two. And instead of listening to my body when it said it had had enough at 4 bites, dummy me didn’t listen.
BUT IT WAS SO FREAKING GOOOOOD!
Have any of you tried this flavor? I give it 5 out of 5 cones!
Here are a few others I want to try from the Haagen Dazs line:
banana split which we have in the freezer
What are you favorite ice cream flavors?
