Haagen Dazs Mayan choc ice cream

Haagen Dazs Mayan chocolate is better than the usual new prod intro cuz it’s at least original, not just a candy-bar-cloned deal but actually refs a concept reech weeth heestory: that the mayans were the first consumers of choc. HD's so behind the thing, it created this fairly silly 3D-ish graphics program that takes forever to load and duzn’t tell ya a lot. (Link only if you want to send your computer into a spiral of inefficiency.) anyway taste-wise the i.c. is "rich dark choc w/ a hint of cinnamon" and a fudge swirl. def more of an adulty thing - not sweet, little bit intense, good paired w/ other flavors.

Look, I am trying to keep a low profile here, people. You've seen who visits this site.

God bless the Mayans for being the first to use chocolate, and for all of those who came after to make it what it is today.
yummy.

Just a thought, tg, the Haagen Dazs website goes to great lengths to make the ice cream look appealing, putting it into an "artifact-looking" bowl. You might want to think about that when you slop the ice cream into your bowl, that picture looks a little grotesque. Not quite sure what the ice cream resembles, but it aint pretty.

Clairevoyant may pride herself on being able to predict the future but she becomes a little predictable herself with her kneejerk support of anything chocolate. I'm pretty sure there's more to life than chocolate.

clairevoyant... I think you really mean "Quatzequatel bless the Mayans..."

This ice cream got major thumbs up in our household. While my own interest is almost purely academic -- since I am not able to partake of these frozen pleasures in anything other than teaspoon doses -- I think they should have added some chillis to the recipe.

We admire Professor Kirk's academic interest in ice cream and other sugary products, and think that eating it by the teaspoonful is the best way to go.

hi soof! actually, when it comes to predictability, you win, because i can almost be assured that if i post, you'll be there behind me, cheering me on!

by the way, now that i think of it, i believe it was ME in a previous mayan incarnation who learned to roast and grind the cocoa beans. so, Quatzequatel bless me!

I GUESS NOBODY ELSE HAD THE GUTS TO TAKE THE IQ TEST. OF COURSE, I DON'T BLAME YOU. HOW CAN YOU COMPARE TO THIS:

"This means that you are more intelligent than 98% of all other posters on NYCE. This means you are a highly intelligent, complex dog.

You are able to process information of nearly every kind with ease, using both creativity and analysis to make sense of the world. Compared to others you also have a very rich imagination."

SUCKS TO BE YOU.

The mangy mongrel isn't as smart as she thinks she is. Otherwise she'd realize that being a "highly intelligent, complex dog" doesn't get you anywhere. All you need is to be born into the right family. But go ahead flea magnet, continue in your delusional state. I'll be busy going to clubs, getting in and out of limos, and just generally living the life of luxury.

Hey, Dog Breath... get you and Twisted Master on a plane here for the White Rock Lake Festival tomorrow and Sunday at Flagpole Hill.

Former front man for Jaded Soul -- Tobin James -- has a new band called Damaged Goods and they will be blues'ing away from 7:30-9pm Saturday.

The bands play for free, and your master pays 5 bucks. You get to chase squirrels, possums and skirts~! He gets to buy beer and burgers and bugs and pick up your strays.

Hell, I'll even walk you back across the hill to my place and you can see if you can get one of those peacocks!

There's no way this dog's life could get more luxurious.

I'll take a 1/3 cup of super rich ice cream over a cup of the low fat stuff any day. Sounds like this one is worth a try.

That Tobin James is a busy fellow.

I tried this last night. Instead of being straight chocolate, it's cinnamon flavored chocolate with big globs of fudge scattered throughout. I was expecting the cinnamon flavor, but the fudge blobs were a nice surprise.
