Sure, Häagen-Dazs had its heyday in the 1980s, but I've never stopped liking this gourmet ice cream. I've been particularly enamored of the new 'Five' flavors, which launched a little over a year ago. (I'm also a huge fan of the simple but oh-so-smart print advertising campaign for 'Five.') My hands-down favorite is the new lemon flavor.
Me, oh, my: Go out and buy some and then try not to eat it all. It's flavor is clear and citrus-y, but mellowed by the creaminess of the cream and milk. We ate it with a little cut-up fruit (mango, kiwi and peach) and it made an elegant and easy dessert.
