Leverage wrote: I might be in the minority, but I've found Haagen Dazs quality has declined over the last few years. This $3.50-$4.00 price point used to be quite rare, but is common lately, and the only thing I can think of is that their ingredients are getting cheaper therefore making the lower pricepoint profitable.

I'd agree that it's still better than most of the garbage on the shelves, but ultimately a local ice cream supplier like Kawartha in Ontario or Avalon in BC offer a way better product at a similar price point, and you're supporting local. Haagen Dazs is owned & operated by Nestle.
Thanks for pointing out that it's a Nestle brand. I've been trying to boycott them as much as possible.

Thanks OP. If RFDers can't get the deal with the 3000 Optimum points, alternative is to pay $10 on ice cream + groceries and redeem you 10000 Optimum points, making this 'free'

If you're not familiar with prices in the ice cream department, then let me clarify a thing or two for you.

This particular ice cream only gets down to $3 during store-specific clearances--roughly once per year. Being able to snatch a tub for $3.5 is an absolute no-brainer price for what is considered the Ferrari of ice cream.

It's about time you put the highly-processed junk (Breyers, Chapmans, Nestlé, etc.) aside, and let your body finally thank you for giving it what it really deserves--a high quality ice cream made only with the finest natural ingredients.

To give you an example, the ingredients of the Matcha Green Tea flavor I'm currently eating can be counted on a single hand: Cream, Concentrated Skim Milk, Sugar, Liquid Egg Yolks, and Green Matcha Tea. Not one more.

That's right, Haagen Dazs has no weird additives that make your stomach hurt. No modified milk ingredients, hydrogenated coconut oil, mono and diglycerides, cellulose gum, guar gum, polysorbate 80, tartrazine, carrageenan, etc. crap other brands often use.

On top of that, this ice cream's rich fat content helps your body slow down the absorption of sugars, resulting in a very mellow release of energy. Simply put, you won't feel the "sugar rush" (and down) you get when you eat the cheaper brands.

And, if that's not enough, bear in mind that ONE cup of this creamy goodness yields 40% of your daily Vitamin A requirements. And 30% of your calcium needs. That's more than what you get drinking a cup of whole milk!

Have fun!

I wish I could recommend a single flavor... but they are all equally delectable.

*The regular price for one tub is $6, but you get a multi-buy discount when you buy two. This brings the price down to $5 each. And since there is a free 3000 Optimum points when you spend 10 bucks on Haagen Dazs, it brings the price down to only $3.5 per tub.

Last week I picked up a tub of coffee flavored HD when it was on sale at Save-on, and it tasted kind of ...watery. Maybe I'm just getting old & my taste buds are dying off. Or maybe the ice cream is not as rich as it used to be.

Nestle is a disgusting company. They would literally kill your baby if they can make a few bucks and think they can get away with it:

Yes, companies exist to make money, but not all of them will kill babies to do it.

I also found that if they let it sit outside the freezer for any amount of time while clerks are restocking the shelves, the sensory qualities of such ice cream aren't as good. It's no longer 'smooth'.

Also, no need to glorify ice cream like it's some kind of super food, nor is there a need to judge people for buying different brands
How is Haagen Dazs NOT a super food? u ok bro?

The ice-cream is really delicious but you didn't mention that on average there are 18g fat, including 11g saturated fat and 0.5g Trans fat per 125ml. In other words, there are 44g saturated fat and 2g trans fat per tub.

That’s why it’s so good. If you want some lower fat substitutes go for one of those ghastly frozen ice desserts with their myriad of garbage ingredients. As long as you keep your overall calories in check there’s nothing wrong with saturated fat. And naturally occurring trans fat, as it is in this case, is fine. It’s the artificial trans fats that you want to avoid.
Good, better, best. Never let it rest. 'Til your good is better and your better is best.
