Chalk up yet another sweet treat that Canada gets to lord over our heads. First they get the Oreo-filled Cadbury Eggs, and now they’ve got a whole line of booze-flavored Häagen-Dazs ice cream that they’ve been enjoying since at least May. It’s just not fair!
Häagen-Dazs introduced five new flavors in the Spirits line back in May, and since then they’ve reportedly been sold exclusively at Walmart locations in Canada. So, what have we been missing out on? They’ve got Rum Vanilla Caramel Blondie, Whiskey Chocolate Truffle, Irish Cream Coffee & Biscotti, Vodka Key Lime Pie, and Rum Ginger Cookie. Granted, Irish cream and rum flavored ice cream has been a thing for ages, but we’re really broken up about missing out on the vodka and key lime combo.
Apparently the pints of ice cream legitimately do have alcohol content, although it’s been reported at less than one percent — these pints aren’t going to replace the kind you get at happy hour. Still, why not both? Here’s hoping Häagen-Dazs does us a solid sometime this summer.
