When I was a kid, I used to dream that one day I’m going to have ice cream for an entire meal! Imagine, my favorite sweet indulgence for the whole seating, instead of a tiny scoop or a small cone after being forced to chew swallow down the last bit of rice and boiled carrots.
Well, that dream came true!
I was invited to the launch of Häagen-Dazs‘ two new limited edition mochi flavours – the Tiramisu Mochi ice cream and Cream Cheese Mochi ice cream at Sunway Velocity Mall.
These ice cream are as you suspect – a combination of real authentic ice cream with delicately sized mochi pieces in them, resulting in a rather unique chewy texture that I thought was quite interesting, and one that worked better than imagined, you just have to try it.
The Tiramisu Mochi Ice Cream is inspired from homemade tiramisu using real mascarpone from Italy, while the Cream Cheese Mochi Ice Cream is made with real authentic cream cheese from Europe, carrying the quality you’d expect from Häagen-Dazs.
At the launch of the new Mochi flavors, we got to experience the limited edition menu (available at Häagen-Dazs stores till end of year) with Gondola Tiramisu & Bistro Paris.
Gondola Tiramisu (RM 44.20) is crafted with tempered chocolate made into a bowl with Tiramisu Mochi, Coffee, and Vanilla ice cream. The whole thing is surrounded by fresh cream, caramel, and nut brittles. The best of Italian sweetness on a plate.
As for Bistro Paris (RM 46.50), you can expect cheese, fresh fruits, with a cheesecake and the Cream Cheese Mochi Ice Cream paired with Macadamia Nut ice cream and Raspberry sorbet.
If you have a sweet tooth, you’d absolutely love these.
You can get the two new flavors at the following sizes – minicup (100 ml) goes for RM 9.35 while pint size (473 ml) is priced at RM 30.40.
They are available at Häagen-Dazs outlets nationwide as well as major supermarkets including Aeon, Ben’s Independent Grocer, Family Mart, Jaya Grocer, 7-11, Village Grocer, and more.
