Ice cream to swoon over

Ice cream to swoon over

Sweets are an all-year affair for the Foodgōd team. But we sure love Valentine’s Day for the epic abundance of special-edition desserts and delicious temptations.

For this year’s holiday, sugar lovers in the United Kingdom are in for a special treat courtesy of Häagen-Dazs: the ice cream brand is releasing a limited-edition Cherry Blossom flavor in present-worthy floral packaging.

The indulgent specialty ice cream is made from milk and fresh cream blended with delicate Sakura extract, cherry blossom flowers, and a swirl of tangy cherry sauce.

To make the pint extra alluring, British designer Kitty McCall created a unique and eye-catching floral pattern that’s perfect for VDay.

“We are going through a very exciting time at Häagen-Dazs, which kicked off with our major brand reset last year,” Arjoon Bose, head of marketing for Häagen-Dazs, said in a release. “This limited-edition flavor epitomizes what the relaunch is all about—exciting, adventurous flavors that appeal to a more diverse, younger millennial demographic, without alienating our loyal generation X customer base.”

“The launch of Cherry Blossom is timed to capitalize on Valentine’s Day and, with its romantic pink hue and floral packaging, it will have great on shelf standout in store.”
