Haagen Dazs Salted Caramel Ice Cream Bars

Haagen Dazs Salted Caramel Ice Cream Bars

I've been waiting for the Haagen Dazs Ice Cream Bars range to go on special offer for a while now, and at last, Tesco are the first ones to do it! They're currently on a £2 deal (they're usually £3.50), so I snapped up a box of this Salted Caramel Milk Chocolate variety this week.

They're described as "caramel ice cream with Belgian chocolate, salted caramel swirl and salted caramel brittle". I'd heard this was the best flavour out of the new range so was very excited to try it, even despite my experience with the slightly disappointing Haagen Dazs Mango Raspberry Bars.

There's three sticks per pack, each individually wrapped. They're somewhat smaller than a Magnum in size.

They tasted pretty amazing! The Milk Chocolate is rich and creamy, with the ice cream tasting luxurious as Haagen Dazs always tends to. The pockets of salted caramel bring some welcome salty sweetness, whilst the salted caramel brittle is what really makes the bars extra special. It's chewy, sweet and slightly salty, and makes the bars just that extra bit luxurious! The combination of elements combined makes these some seriously tasty ice cream bars indeed.

As nice as these are, would I pay full price for them? Probably not to be honest. The smaller size does let them down a bit as it practically forces you to eat another one after the first! I don't consider myself greedy, I just have a normal appetite ;)

  1. These are amazing but the white and almond and the vanilla caramel almond are something else, best handheld ice cream I have ever tasted, deffo try them whilst they're on offer :)

  2. I really really like the ice cream on these but I just wished that the chocolate was thicker or had some texture like almonds. I had 3 or 4 when they first came out but I haven't rushed backed to them because of the coating.

  3. These are a real let down. I've tasted better own label icecream than this. I found the dark chocolate very bitter and far too thin. I had no caramel swirls or brittle in my bar. I'll stick to my Lidl Almond Vanilla ice cream bars - much better value.
