Backed by a premium-ice-cream-peddling history that stretches to the 1920s, Häagen-Dazs scoops out frozen-treat signature flavors from its slew of nationally scattered shops. Guests can fill kiddie ($3.25), regular ($4.25), large ($5.25), and abandoned-ice-cream-truck sizes of cups and cones with sweet swirls of classic chocolate or sink cuspids into a layered Dazzler dessert ($6.75). Waffle cones cradle chilled dollops in plain (add $0.75) or dipped (add $1) shells, and toppings such as sauces and syrups (add $0.50) dapple confectionary landscapes. Steep taste buds in rich sips of a belgian-chocolate shake ($5.75) or imbibe a Sorbet Sipper ($4.75–$5.25), a tasty hybrid of naturally fat-free fruit flavors created more efficiently than shelving bananas alongside apples and hoping that they procreate. Alternatively, hand-packed pints of ice cream (a $5.95 value each) deliver a hearty helping of Häagen-Dazs's cavalcade of sweet-tooth satisfiers, including limited-edition seasonal flavors, such as coconut macaroon and spiced caramel biscuit.
