Everyone has strong opinions when it comes to ice cream. Battles between chocolate and vanilla fans can become heated while trying to pick a chilly treat to share. Plus, it can all change depending on your mood. Feeling sad? Maybe a metaphorical Rocky Road is what you need to work through those emotions. Celebrating a happy milestone? Perhaps you want to jazz things up with a refreshing mint chip.
All of which makes the most popular flavors from Häagen-Dazs this year so interesting. According to their data, there’s a clear (and surprising) winner that customers pick more often than the rest.
Top 5 Häagen-Dazs Flavors in 2019
- Cookies and Cream
- Dulce de Leche
- Belgian Chocolate
The classic Oreo-inspired flavor is a nice mixture of textures and tastes, but is anyone else more shocked to see vanilla on its own ranking so high in second place? This feels like a big win for vanilla supporters who have had to defend their choices against chocoholics over the years. Even with two different types of chocolates cracking the top five, they both ended up at the bottom.
That said, there may be a third contender in the age-old ice cream debate coming for vanilla’s crown, with dulce de leche inching up to the third place slot. The company told WomansWorld, “Compared to last year, both Häagen-Dazs Dulce De Leche and Caramel Cone have become more popular, with both flavors ranking in Haagen-Dazs’ Top 10 flavors in Häagen-Dazs Shops.” We’ll be keeping an eye out for caramel goodness in in our local grocery for sure!
As for flavors people search for on the Häagen-Dazs website, the most popular flavors got even more quirky this year.
