Häagen-Dazs Releases a New Creative Ice Cream Flavor Featuring Hazelnuts!

Häagen-Dazs is releasing a new ice cream flavor called Noisette Chocolat for a limited time only this winter under the exclusive Häagen-Dazs Spécialité lineup. This article will cover everything about this luxurious ice cream treat, from the ingredients, taste, and even the packaging!

Noisette Chocolat: A Special Häagen-Dazs Ice Cream Flavor Only Available This Year!

The Häagen-Dazs Spécialité series is only available for purchase every winter. This year, they've released a luxurious ice cream flavor that features hazelnuts!
Noisette Chocolat is an extravagant four-layered dessert ice cream that consists of a crispy layer of feuilletine (thin crepes broken up into small pieces) sandwiched between rich hazelnut ice cream and chocolate ice cream with the slightly bitter flavor of cacao tucked underneath the sweetness. The outer layer is coated with a caramel sauce, and a silver powder is then sprinkled on top. It is a special winter-exclusive ice cream that takes extra care in choosing its ingredients and producing a delicious taste.

Reference price: 450 JPY (excl. tax) *Available at convenience stores all across Japan.

The Secret to the Delicious Flavors of Noisette Chocolat

Ice Cream With a Rich Hazelnut Flavor

The secret to the flavors of the highly fragrant hazelnut ice cream is the hazelnuts roasted at a high temperature. It's made with hazelnuts from the Giresun and Trabzon regions of Turkey, which are considered to be of the highest quality even among Turkish hazelnuts. These nuts are roasted to produce deep, rich flavors and enhance their aromatic fragrances, which result in a heavenly fragrant and delicious ice cream.

Chocolate Ice Cream Matches Perfectly with Noisette

The chocolate ice cream is made with bitter chocolate from Belgium, which results in a refined combination of both sweet and bitter flavors. This rich chocolate ice cream has a hint of orange fragrance from the addition of Grand Marnier liquer.

A Bitter Coating With Crunchy Pieces of Feuilletine

Feuilletine is layered between two rich layers of ice cream to add an interesting textural twist. The crepe bits are coated in vegetable oils and fats to maintain their delicate crispiness despite being placed inside ice cream.

The Fancy Packaging is Worth a Look, Too!

The stunning packaging is designed with a vivid blue color. The edges of the lid are decorated with facets cut into it, which makes it shine in certain lighting just like a jewel.

This luxurious ice cream fits right in with the exciting and stunning winter events to come! How about treating yourself to a special flavor that you can only get this winter?
