Most ice cream lovers would agree that the creamiest ice cream is the best. Manufacturers judge ice cream by the butterfat content. Haagen-Dazs makes no apologies for their fat content. Their product is available in super markets, but once, I found a HD shop in New Jersey where you order a sundae or a milk shake made from that wonderful creamy recipe.
Last week we discovered a HD shop in Naples at the Waterside Shops mall on Tamiami Trail. It was funny because the customers were all women shoppers who stopped for a treat. Everyone of them had purchased the smallest cup possible, and they were eating it very slowly as if it were their last meal. So I ordered a small hot fudge sundae. It had one small scoop in a small cup. I thought they should have been playing that Disney tune–it’s a small world after all. I ate it slowly also, giving Eileen two tiny tastes (she refused to actually get her own, which is a devious trick that she does frequently). It cost me nearly $5.00 (but it WAS extra good.)
If you love good ice cream, check it out. It might be worth the trip (also you can buy a $1000.00 plastic bag from Louis Vuitton or a trinket at Tiffany’s). By the way, despite the name, Haagen-Dazs is an American company. The Danish-sounding name was invented by the founders in Bronx, New York.
