From the Department of Why Didn’t Someone Think of This Before, ice-cream maker Häagen-Dazs has added six booze-infused flavors to a new product line called “Häagen-Dazs Spirits.” (Actually, other small brands have.) The company already has begun rolling out the new flavors and expects them to be available widely by April.
Häagen-Dazs products are owned by Swiss-based food giant Nestlé, and the brand is owned by General Mills Co. (NYSE: GIS). There are more than 900 Häagen-Dazs ice-cream shops globally. For consumers lucky enough to live near a Häagen-Dazs shop, the Spirits ice cream is expected to be available on around March 1, according to Food Wine magazine.
The alcohol content of the Spirits flavors is less than 0.5% by volume, and that means consumers of any age can buy a 14-ounce carton of Irish Cream Brownie, Rum Tres Leches, Bourbon Vanilla Bean Truffle, Stout Chocolate Pretzel Crunch, Bourbon Praline Pecan,
