While the Vegan Festival did happen this year, I didn’t think it was safe enough to attend, even though they had pretty good regulations in place to keep everyone safe. Although I absolutely loved the previous festivals, I’m not going to jump the gun just because I want to have fun.
So, with that in mind, I’m bringing you another ice cream review, instead.
I actually first tried Haagen Dazs vegan ice cream at one of the festivals, so I thought it fitting that I reviewed their product in place of the festival review.
These ice cream bars are very tasty. It had that dark chocolate that makes you thirsty as a coating, encasing the peanut butter ice cream, on a stick. The bar is similar to what I remember Reece’s cups tasting like (though I haven’t had those in over 7 years, so maybe not the best authority on their taste. That said, it was chocolate and peanut butter, which is a great combo regardless of how close it tastes to a sugary snack.
Another cool thing about the Haagen Dazs ice cream, is that it is actually peanut butter ice cream, not almond, soy, or nut-based. They straight up turned peanut butter into ice cream, and used that. I think that’s part of why it tastes so good, because they didn’t make (for example) almond ice cream, and then blend peanut butter with it, it’s just peanut butter.
There were streaks/swirls of what looked like chocolate in the bar. I don’t know exactly what the swirls were made out of, but am assuming it was chocolate fudge, as the name suggests. I don’t know if I’d say it was a ‘fudge-y’ flavour, but it definitely added to the overall taste of the bar. Even the wooden stick the bar is on tastes pretty good!

There was also a lattice pattern of drizzled chocolate over the coating, which made the bar feel very fancy. The box they come in is also a fancy looking green and gold, which really makes it feel like you’re buying a premium ice cream.
Speaking of the box, only 3 bars come in one, which… well, I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: it sucks! Why do they make vegan food in such small quantities? Also, judging by the size of the box, you could fit at least one more in there. They wouldn’t even have to change production or make updated boxes! Four at least would be better, especially for the price. One box is $5.98 at Walmart, and while that’s pretty on par with the other vegan ice creams, if given the choice between a tub and 3 bars, economically, it just makes sense to buy the tub. You get more ice cream for almost the same price.
All in all, these bars make you feel pretty fancy/posh when you eat them (or maybe that’s just me?), and they are pretty tasty. If you haven’t tried them yet, I definitely recommend you add them to your summer shopping list. (At least once)
