Haagen Dazs Ice Cream Shops Keep Cool with Dairy-Free Cones


I had wanted to share this information before free cone day, but Haagen Dazs didn’t send dairy-free details to me until after their mostly nationwide freebie holiday. But there is always next year, and it’s good to know your options at this classic ice cream parlor any day of the year.

It’s no secret that I love Haagen Dazs Non-Dairy ice cream. Those marvelous pints are so decadent that even my dairy-eating friends can’t get enough of them. But sometimes it’s fun to enjoy ice cream spontaneously, on a hot day, while traveling, or simply when a craving strikes. Luckily, their scoop shops usually have some dairy-free options.

Haagen Dazs Ice Cream Shops Keep Cool with Dairy-Free Cones

A standard flavor in their shops is the Non-Dairy Chocolate Salted Fudge Truffle. If there can only be one creamy dairy-free option, we think this is a good one. It’s a dense vegan chocolate ice cream with generous chunk chunks of salted truffle. You will be satisfied. But, if you happen to spot the Non-Dairy Peanut Butter Fudge ice cream, which some shops reportedly serve, don’t pass it up. It’s pure heaven for peanut butter-chocolate fans.

Lighter dairy-free options include their vegan Mango, Raspberry, and Strawberry Sorbets. These are all dairy-free, and the Strawberry flavor is exclusive to their shops.

According to a Haagen Dazs representative, you can order your non-dairy scoop in a cup or a cone, because all of the Haagen-Dazs cones are dairy free. But do check in store before ordering to ensure that the store owner hasn’t sourced different cones. All of their shops are individually owned, so the cones and toppings can vary. Most offer fresh fruit, crushed Oreo cookies, and some other dairy-free and vegan toppings, but check with the staff.

We have been told by the Haagen Dazs team that they can make their smoothies dairy free upon request. Most are made with a sorbet base, and the dairy yogurt can be substituted or omitted.

Despite the very European-sounding name, Haagen Dazs is a U.S. company, so most of their ice cream shops are in North America. But they do have outposts in 54 countries. This information is for the U.S. specifically, but it might carry over in many of their shops worldwide. Please do leave a rating and comment if you find good dairy-free options at any of their locations.

I love that they have non-dairy in their shops now. It’s great for a special treat – and the fudge flavor is one of my favorites. I just wish the scoops weren’t so expensive. It really is a “treat.” Last time we walked in, left and went to the store around the corner, and got a whole pint for much less!
