Ginger Lickin' Good

Häagen-Dazs Five ginger ice cream ($2.00)

We were shopping for groceries to make stew and homemade sloppy joe for our weekend meals, when a pint of Häagen-Dazs ginger ice cream sang out to me as we cut through the frozen aisle to pay.

Häagen-Dazs's Five line consists of 7 flavors, mint, ginger, coffee, vanilla bean, passion fruit, brown sugar, and milk chocolate.

Brown sugar! That flavor sounded intriguing, after ginger. Unfortunately, there were no more brown sugar pints.

The ingredients for the ginger ice cream are as follows, skim milk, cream, sugar, ginger, and egg yolks.

Bug was impressed.

The texture was similar to frozen custard, substantial, creamy, and uncomplicated. Despite the barely noticeable wispy strands of ginger, they went undetected to my tongue. The essence of ginger is ever-present with each bite, but not overpowering.

Those who hate ginger will abhor this. Lovers of ginger won't have enough heat. I found this ice cream to be quite pleasant, at the start of a meal, end of a meal, between meals, ...

I wish I could say tonight's meal was similarly elegant. We had Taco Bell.
