Updated January 2022! 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.
Dairy-Free & Vegan Menu Guide for Haagen Dazs Scoop Shops
Haagen Dazs corporate isn’t very cohesive with allergen information, but we’ve been able to put together the following information via dozens of inquiries over the years.
Ice Cream Flavors
A standard flavor in their shops has been 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.
Some shops don’t scoop any of the creamy non-dairy flavors, but almost all have some lighter dairy-free options, including Haagen Dazs vegan Mango, Raspberry, and Strawberry Sorbets. These are all dairy-free, and the Strawberry flavor is exclusive to their shops – you can’t buy it in pints.
Cones & Toppings
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 Haagen Dazs 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.

Where to Find Haagen Dazs Ice Cream Shops
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. They have over 900 locations worldwide, but the options might vary outside of the U.S. See the websites below to find a shop near you.

Great, but not cheap!
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!
