Haagen Dasz is known around the world, but in Japan they take things one step further. All year round you will find limited editions or seasonal items. When I visited this month there was a so-called salted butter biscuit ice-cream. I can assure you there was no hesitation this time.
It was love at first bite. The ice-cream was rich and creamy, but more pleasantly tasted exactly like a butter cookie. It is so rare to find a mass produced food item that doesn’t taste like it is laced with chemicals, but the good people of Haagen Dasz managed to pull one out of the bag. There were also some pieces of actual butter cookie mixed throughout for an extra dimension. The only reason I’m not giving this a ten is that there wasn’t really any evident saltiness.
