Haagen Dazs (Sushi Ice Cream Platter) @ VivoCity

This was a little treat over the weekend with Momo, Sis and my cousin. If you watched "Chen Ren Za Zhi" / City Beat on Singapore TV last week, you would have seen this on the show! Haagen Dazs is having Sushi Ice Cream.

We were at VivoCity and after walking around, we saw Haagen Dazs and my cousin said, "hey, they have Sushi Ice Cream, shall we try it?" Our legs were tired so we quickly walked in. Even before looking at the 'menu', we knew what we wanted. We told them we wanted the Sushi Platter.

This is the Haagen Dazs Sushi Ice Cream Platter.

Haagen Dazs Sushi Platter - $22


We noticed the plate was not cold like other places, but it's still ok as our ice cream was still frozen.

This is the Mango & Passion Fruit Sushi - It's macademia nut ice cream as the 'shari' (rice), mango & passion fruit ice cream as the 'neta' (topping) and chocolate 'nori'.

The Strawberry Gunkan  which has Macademia Ice Cream 'shari', Strawberries 'neta' and Chocolate 'nori'.

The Mango Sorbet Sushi that looks like tuna had Vanilla Ice cream 'shari' and Mango Sorbet 'neta'. Oh, the sorbet is sour and really perks you up!

This is the Kiwi Gunkan - Vanilla Ice Cream 'shari', Kiwi Fruit 'neta' and Chocolate 'nori'.
All four were delicious! How can we not enjoy ice cream?

The platter set came with a mini scoop of Green Tea Ice Cream.
(thanks to Stargirl for the reminder. The 'wasabi' is green tea ice cream)

Hmmm... Haagen Dazs has been advertising their slow melt ice cream. The above were slow melting, but definitely not the green tea! ;-p

We also ordered 2 more scoops of ice cream. You can't have enough of ice cream can you?
Memory's failing, but I think these were Belgian Chocolate and Panna Cotta. The chocolate is deeeelicious.

The ice cream companies are getting creative eh? I think they were the ones that came out with mooncake ice cream before others copied them?

It's a little pricey though. The platter costs $22. But I guess it's labour intensive. It's probably all individually hand-crafted.


'Ice' (skinnerthantheoriginal) the most loyal fan of HD must be excited? hehe..

Really innovative! Ermm... Is the "Seaweed" edible? Is it chocolate?

Keropok Man said...

Miso,

The seaweed is chocolate and everything on the plate is edible! ;-)

Stargirl said...

how creative! the platter didn't have *mandatory* sashimi-topped sushi though XD perhaps the scoop of green tea ice-cream was supposed to be a huge lump of wasabi...

Meg in Nelson said...

Ummm..... innovative, but for the first time, I'm really not sure about these.....

ice said...

Haha yeah! I'm so amused by this! Sushi & ice cream = love. I can eat 2 platters of this yums... for dessert after "real" sushi lunch. =P

J said...

Hi do you know if is this is only available at Vivo branch?
Can't find any info on this on Haagen Daz's website

Keropok Man said...

Stargirl,
Oh yes, green tea is the wasabi! :-)

Meg,
LOL... Do they have this in Japan? Maybe if they make it with NZ Ice cream, maybe you will eat it?

Ice,
Side by side? hehe...
Take photos of the real and fake together, that will be nice.

J,
We had it in the Vivo branch. They might have it elsewhere. Perhaps you wanna call them up? :-)

ohhh this is TOO cute! but the sushi ice cream will totally be not satisfying there is too little of it! :D

Memória said...

wow. I wish I could do this!! I think this would be the only way I would eat "sushi" haha.

Jojo said...

I have to check whether they have this at my local Häagen Dazs :-D

Bento Box said...

How novel! looks scrumptious! :o)

SushiTail said...

Now that's a kind of dessert I want after I've had real sushi.

Keropok Man said...

dot,
Order another portion? hehe... Or DIY at home! (which will be too much work eh?)


Memoria,
Everyone who does not eat raw fish will like this. :-)

Jojo,
Who knows they might soon have that in Switzerland!

BentoBox, SushiTail,
