Häagen-Dazs knows that ice cream is always delicious, but one flavor is the most popular. Could a non-traditional flavor top chocolate and vanilla?
Who doesn’t love a scoop, bowl or even a pint of Häagen-Dazs ice cream? From the store freezer to the shops, this ice cream brand knows the flavors and trends that people love. As the year comes to a close, can you guess which flavor people craved the most?
Although classic flavors are consistently top choices, the number one flavor for 2019 was cookies and cream. Cookies and cream beat the classics which seems to prove that people are moving beyond the traditional.
While cookies and cream may not push the boundaries completely, it does offer flavor and texture. In a way, it is the perfect combination of two desserts, ice cream and cookies.
Overall, this flavor appeals to all ages. Plus, it works with a variety of desserts. Whether served with a chocolate drizzle, in a milkshake or just a bowl on its own, cookies and cream always bring a smile.
In addition to the top flavor, Häagen-Dazs found that everyone is crazy about caramel. From Dulce De Leche to Caramel Cone, two of the top ten flavors were caramel forward.
Caramel has a greater appeal because that sweetness just feels satisfying. Where chocolate feels indulgent and vanilla is classic, caramel offers that sophisticated taste. In some ways, caramel is the flavor that you can eat a smaller portion and still feel satisfied.
There is a growing trend that ice cream is becoming a way of exploring all types of flavors that appeal to adults. As seen with the popularity of the booze-infused flavors launched earlier this year, adults still want their special treats. Kids aren’t the only ones who scream for ice cream.
Looking ahead to 2020, ice cream trends could change. As the plant-based movement grows, non-traditional ice creams could find their way into the top flavor lists. Also, global flavors could start appearing in the top trends. Watch out caramel, exotic fruits or savory flavors could start appearing in your ice cream bowl.
