Haagen-Dazs' newest gourmet ice cream flavor features swirls of caramel and chocolate oat clusters to create a tantalizing salty and sweet frozen treat. The new flavor is part of the ice cream brands Artisan line that features dessert flavors themed after smaller eateries across the world.
The Chocolate Caramelized Oat Haagen-Dazs flavor was made in conjunction with San Francisco bakery Clairesquares. The ice cream features a rich caramel flavoring topped with chunks of oats throughout. The oat clusters are glazed in chocolate to add a decadent crunchy taste to the smooth texture of the ice cream. Often oats are used in baked goods and the transition of the grain into a dessert-themed ice cream seems like a natural progression. The addition adds savory and sweet aromas to the frozen custard.
