Bacon and eggs, peanut butter and jelly, burger and fries ... alcohol and ice cream?
Come April, the uncommon but intriguing pairing will come to supermarket freezers nationwide thanks to Häagen-Dazs, which recently announced plans to add seven alcohol-infused ice cream flavors to its lineup by then.
The Minnesota-based company says its flavors will include Irish Cream Brownie, Rum Tres Leches, Vanilla Bean Bourbon Truffle, Non-Dairy Amaretto Black Cherry Almond Toffee and Irish Cream Cookie Squares.
“The Spirits Collection was expertly crafted to offer new, extraordinary ways to indulge," said Rachel Jaiven, Häagen-Dazs' brand manager.
While the ice cream's flavors will mimic that of booze, don't expect to build up a buzz after a few scoops: The products have a 0.5 percent alcohol by volume, a similar amount to what's used to make nonalcoholic beer.
No ID will be required to purchase, the company said, and all flavors are available in 14 oz. cartons and cookie squares at a suggested retail price of $5.29.
Irish Cream Brownie: Rich Irish Cream-infused ice cream is folded together with chocolate brownie pieces and a decadent fudge swirl.
