Recently, ice cream maker Häagen-Dazs released a new line of ice creams called “ Five “. The idea behind this brilliant product is that the ice cream contains only five basic ingredients: including milk, cream, sugar, egg, and a flavor such as chocolate, mint, ginger, or brown sugar.
Color me intrigued. I love natural foods and foods with few ingredients. I’m amazed that so many potato chips can list ingredients as: “potatoes, salt, safflower oil.” I love when foods don’t include preservatives. I think natural foods are better for you and your environment. And I love simple flavors in quality foods. So I was definitely going to track down a pint of this goodness.
So I ventured to my local Publix to check this ice cream out, only to be disappointed by the fact that they don’t have it. Marketing fail.
Why? First, they enticed me with this: Kevin Rose tweeted about Häagen-Dazs Five a few weeks ago. So Häagen-Dazs sent him an entire case of ice cream! Then, Slashfood got their case of Häagen-Dazs Five . So after this brilliant ploy to get me interested by invading all of my social media outlets, the ice cream isn’t even available mainstream yet?
