There are icecreams like Baskin Robbins, Kwality Walls, Mcdonalds McSwirls, Unilever, Cold Stone Creamery (ones I have eaten till date) and then there is Haagen Dazs. While the other icecreams mentioned are all about having something cold or tasting a good dessert, Haagen Dazs with its exquisite products and fantastic ambience creates a killer mix of delight, a never before urge to have something sweet and pure pleasure. I haven’t had any icecreams which creates such feelings ever!
I entered its store in the Avenues Mall in Kuwait after having a burger at Hardees and a Chicken Barritos at Amigos. Now that in itself is a lot of food. But then it is dessert, right? One surely wouldn’t require a lot of space to have a light one.
The first thing that struck me was the fact that Haagen Dazs just wasn’t an icecream store. Yes there are leaders in premium icecreams. But their store serves shakes, yoghurts, drinks and even some snacks. One can just take his / her seat at a table and the person comes to take the order.
We ordered Brownie Explosion which consists of a Chocolate brownie, served with scoops of Chocolate Midnight Cookies and Cookies & Ice-cream, draped in indulgent chocolate sauce. It looked irresistible at first sight. And mind you the quantity was a lot. A hell lot actually. Probably for some people it could do the work of a small meal with lots of calories.
It is by far the most irresistible, ultimate and indulgent icecream I have ever had on the planet. Having every sip of the dripping sauce and the melting icecream and eating every piece of the brownie was a supremely satisfying experience.
Yes, it costs a bomb (Rs 165 for one scoop in a cup). But seriously Haagen Dazs deserves to be had at least once before you die.
GO FOR IT
PS – THE COMPARISON IN THE FIRST PARAGRAPH ISNT RIGHT IN TERMS OF PRICE AND PRODUCTS. ITS NOT BEEN DONE ON THESE FACTORS BUT GENERALLY BECAUSE I HAVE ONLY BEEN EXPOSED TO THESE BRANDS BEFORE!!!
