Haagen Dazs Non-Dairy Ice Cream: Pints of Unparalleled Decadence

42

There isn’t, nor has there ever been, a dairy-free ice cream quite as indulgent and delicious as Haagen Dazs Non-Dairy Frozen Dessert. They truly broke the mold with these formulas. Yes, formulas – unlike most other brands, no two flavors are alike.

Most dairy-free ice cream brands use a single ice cream base and then add flavors for variations. This causes every flavor to have underpinnings of coconut, almond, soy, or whatever the main ingredient is. But Haagen Dazs uses the flavor as the ice cream base for each individual variety. The Chocolate and Mocha flavors use rich melted chocolate, the Peanut Butter flavor uses peanuts, the Amaretto uses almonds, and the Coconut Caramel flavor uses coconut cream. This technique results in unparalleled taste profiles.

Tasting Notes for Haagen Dazs Non-Dairy Frozen Dessert

There’s nothing modest about Haagen Dazs Non-Dairy Ice Cream. Each pint boldly proclaims it’s decadence with every flavor-packed bite. I’ve added the nutrition facts to this post, since that is our current format, but don’t look. It’s dessert, straight up. Just enjoy it. And unlike most other dairy-free options, one serving of this surprisingly vegan ice cream really does satisfy. In fact, I often have less than a serving!

And do not let the “water” ingredient confuse you. Technically, water is the first ingredient in dairy ice cream, too (heavy dairy cream is about 60% water and whole milk is about 87% water). But cream isn’t required to be broken out that way on food labels – it’s classified as a single ingredient. On dairy-free labels, the water is listed separately and must be used to make a “cream” with the key ingredients. You can’t simply grind peanuts and get ice cream – a liquid must be added!

I’ve updated this post with all of the current creamy flavors of Haagen Dazs Dairy-Free Ice Cream. Unfortunately, the Non-Dairy flavors of TRIO Crispy Layers were discontinued.

Chocolate Salted Fudge Truffle

This is really two desserts in one. The deep, rich, pure chocolate ice cream base is generously dotted with sizable chunks of fudge. We didn’t really note the salted fudge swirl specifically, but I could tell from the intense flavor that it was perfectly salted. This sweet flavor is any chocoholic’s dream, dairy free or not.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Fudge

True peanut butter fans, like myself, will swoon over the intense pb flavor. Ribbons of peanut butter and fudge up the ante on this sweet frozen dessert that has a surprisingly unique consistency. The peanut butter base isn’t as smooth and creamy as the others, but has a cookie meets ice cream mouth feel that is irresistible in its own right.

Coconut Caramel

Unabashedly coconut, this creamy ice cream has rich swirls of caramel sauce throughout.

Amaretto Black Cherry Almond Toffee

This is the newest non-dairy flavor, which was released as a part of their “spirits” line. But it’s only a little boozy with just .5% alcohol. I really didn’t expect to like this flavor, but it is just as rich and delicious as every other pint of Haagen Dazs Non-Dairy Ice Cream. In fact, it’s my husband’s new favorite.

Mocha Chocolate Cookie (might be Discontinuing)

This flavor is still in stores, but is no longer on the Haagen Dazs website. I’m really not a coffee fan. I tolerate creamy, sweet coffee desserts, like dairy-free mud pie. But the bold espresso finish in this flavor of Haagen Dazs Non-Dairy is really for java lovers. Tony enjoyed it, and didn’t have a problem keeping this pint for himself. The cookies are crushed for easier eating, and create a lovely coffeehouse infusion.

This stuff is amazing. I’ve taste-tested dozens of dairy-free ice creams over the years, and none compare to Haagen Dazs. It’s very creamy, full-bodied, and has amazing rich flavors. My favorite flavors are the Peanut Butter and Chocolate Truffle, my husband loves the Mocha, Chocolate Truffle, and Cherry Amaretto. Unfortunately, they aren’t as easy to find as they used to be. I grab several pints every time I see them.

I’m so addicted already! The peanut butter fudge and the coconut Carmel are to die for, and I think they are plenty creamy, and so good and satisfying that even one serving is enough to fill the desert craving unlike other ice cream brands. Love love love!!!

  1. PLEASE take out the corn syrup in the dairy free coconut caramel in the US!!!!!!!!! If you can do it in Canada then u can do it in the US!!! We so need this product but I will not buy it until the corn syrup is taken out!!!!!

  2. Thanks for the review. Just bought these from Metro in Toronto, Canada, and I noticed right away that my pints have ZERO corn syrup. Maybe the ingredients are different for Canada (which I doubt), or the company decided to remove the corn syrup suddenly from their most recent batches due to consumer demand (possible). I for one would not have bought these if I saw corn syrup in the label.

    • Good to know. Thank you for sharing this David! I looked into the Canadian ingredients, and indeed they are a little different from the U.S. ingredients (which does happen quite a bit). The U.S. ones still appear to contain corn syrup, but it looks like the Canadian ones never have contained corn syrup, and they are made in Canada. So they are made in a different facility, too. Glad that worked out for you!

  4. I always find them at Target. I haven’t tried the Mocha flavor because I’m not a coffee fan but I’m in love with the fudge truffle and peanut butter fudge ripple! The coconut was good but too sweet in my opinion. I’m so excited that we have such a variety of ice cream flavors that are really tasty!

  5. I reside in Cape Town South Africa and need information on where I can purchase above goods which are dairy free

  6. Haagen Dazs was my favorite growing up. I’m encouraged that three of these don’t contain gluten ingredients and will reach out to the company to learn more about their manufacturing processes.

    Hi

    Is Belgian chocolate dairy free? My son is galactosaemic; so he’s not allowed any dairy,(or derivatives therof).
    We from south africa; getting non dairy products is a problem.

    Keep up the good work Alisa; I want to order your books.

    I tried the coconut caramel and it is just what you would expect….a caramel made from coconut cream swirled in more coconut cream. If you love caramel, this one is for you. You still taste the coconut so if you don’t like coconut, you may want to skip this one.

  9. Madison Haycock on

    Why do I not know about this! These flavors look incredible! I need to find these and buy them all up!

  10. I have not tried these but will as soon as they are available at my local grocery. I have tried N.D. Almond Dream, it is delicious! I am so grateful for this site on Dairy Free living. I was just diagnosed this past year with both gluten intolerance and diary allergies, you have made this change over so easy. I have your book on my counter and have tried many recipes. I also have tried many on from this site also. My daughter has just been diagnosed with the same allergies and we share our likes and not likes. Thank you so much for the good work you do.

  11. Those flavors look spot on. I do wish they’d drop the corn syrup, but I suppose baby steps are happening for more dairy free options!

    • I hear you Kelly. Definitely far from health food, but I will say that the ingredients are an improvement over another popular non-dairy line which shall remain nameless 🙂

  12. I’ve tried the chocolate fudge truffle and have to admit that I as pretty darned impressed. Not bad at all, especially for a mainstream dairy brand! Here’s hoping they’ll have the means for wider distribution now and make these pints available everywhere, not just a few select stores or cities.
