Nestlé USA, Glendale, Calif., expanded its Häagen-Dazs brand to include a new gelato line and new Limited Edition ice cream flavors.
"We have a very dedicated fan base that is always looking for ways to enhance the ice cream or gelato experience," says Alex Placzek, brand director. "The response to our gelato line has been overwhelmingly positive, and we are thrilled to offer fans a mix of new flavor options—some are innovative and modern while others are a tribute to Italian flavors that have been around for centuries."
New gelato flavors are as follows:
Caramelized Banana Chip. A blend of rich caramel banana gelato with semi-sweet chocolaty chips.
Pistachio. An exquisite classic that is both rich and buttery, delivering a deep-roasted pistachio taste.
Pomegranate Swirl. A duo of Pomegranate Swirl gelato with Vanilla gelato.
Tiramisu. A tribute to the traditional Italian dessert, this blends lady finger cookie pieces into a bold and complex tiramisu gelato.
The Limited Edition ice cream line includes:
Banana Split (through September). Whipped cream ice cream and banana ice cream folded into ribbons of rich fudge and tangy-sweet strawberry and cherry pieces.
Midnight Cookies & Cream (through December). A blend of buttery ribbons of fudge and chocolate wafer cookies in smooth chocolate ice cream for an indulgent twist on the classic cookies and cream.
Pomegranate Dark Chocolate Ice Cream Bars (through September). These bars start with tart pomegranate ice cream, are then dipped in dark chocolate and finished with a rich dark chocolate drizzle.
Each gelato flavor will be available in 14-ounce cartons for a suggested retail price of $4.79. Tiramisu gelato will also be available in 3.6-ounce cups for a suggested retail price of $1.49. The Limited Edition Banana Split and Midnight Cookies & Cream ice cream will be available in 14-ounce cartons for a suggested retail price of $4.79, while the Limited Edition Pomegranate Dark Chocolate ice cream bars will be available for a suggested retail price of $4.39 for a pack of four.
