I remember it as if ’twere…yesterday. The landing of a new brand of ice cream in my country. Being cautious since all of the other ice cream companies did not please my palate, well, with the exception of Munchkings, a local brand, I decided to venture into the world of the unknown flavours of the Dazs. Firstly, I went with the default flavour of chocolate, since one is not supposed to butcher chocolate ice cream in any form or fashion. I was not disappointed. So much so, that I had to have more!
Then I became a little bit more adventurous with my flavours, trying the Baileys, Cookies and Cream, Tiramisu, Strawberry Cheesecake and then Vanilla Caramel Brownie. Yes, it was love at first taste with Vanilla Caramel Brownie, a love that shall and will never die. Whenever a Häagen Dazs store does not have it, I do not bother to buy anything else as this is THE BEST FLAVOUR my tastebuds has ever known.
Sometimes I go into severe withdrawal if I do not get it and I get upset. I then have to resort to going to the supermarket to pick up a pint of the good stuff. However, a pint only goes so far since I have to wilfully stop myself from eating the entire pint in one go because it tastes so damn good!
A pint is not big enough to contain that savoury goodness. I need the entire container they sell at the store to satiate my desires although that may not be enough either but at least it would last waaaay longer than that pint and surely would cost me a lot cheaper in the long run as well.
Anyway, to the person who came up with that frabjous flavour, I salute you! You have come up with THE BEST INVENTION since electricity and I truly mean that. For the days when I am down, just some Häagen Dazs Vanilla Caramel Brownie ice cream is enough to recharge my batteries and get me going once again.
