Did you ever wish for a Haagen-Dazs ice cream shop?

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.
