Alcohol-infused ice cream will be available in April.

February 12, 2019

MINNEAPOLIS – Haagen-Dazs is releasing seven alcohol-infused ice cream treats, according to CNBC.

The collection includes five new flavors of ice cream: Irish Cream Brownie, Rum Tres Leches, Bourbon Vanilla Bean Truffle, Stout Chocolate Pretzel Crunch and Bourbon Praline Pecan. It also includes a cookie treat, Irish Cream Cookie Squares, and a nondairy option, Amaretto Black Cherry Almond Toffee. Each product contains less than 0.5 percent alcohol per volume.

The products will be available in grocery stores in April and in select Haagen-Dazs locations in March. The flavors have been available in Canada for a year and a half already, proving enough success to make the move to the U.S.

Because of the alcohol content, buyers must be 21 years or older to purchase it. Since alcohol regulations differ from state to state, it’s still unclear if the product will be available in grocery stores.

It’s not the first line of alcohol-infused ice cream. Ben & Jerry’s released a bourbon-infused product in 2017, but the alcohol cooked off in the baking process.
