New Secret Sensations Sharing Pints

Häagen-Dazs Secret Sensations Chocolat Fondant or Crème brûléeThere’s something about sitting down with a pint of ice cream all to yourself that is just so much fun. Eating a third or a half of the delicious interior them putting the rest in the freezer for the next attach of the ice cream munchies. Each time you attack the pint there may be less but it is just as delicious.

I was lucky enough to be sent a whole box of 8 Crème Brulee sharing pints and while I did have to sacrifice a few things in the freezer, those pints are secreted safely away for the occasional dip in. I’ve now spotted them on the supermarket shelves too so I know when I run out I will be able to replenish my supply 🙂

These are slightly different from the mini pots. While the mini pots have a single ribbon of the lovely caramel in them, this has secret pockets of it plus a large stash at the bottom which is absolutely lovely. The caramel has a burnt quality which isn’t smoky or unpleasant, simply rich in its depth. Overall with the pieces of crunchy caramelised sugar like a real crème brulee, it is an absolutely lovely treat.

I can imagine that the chocolate version is going to be absolutely fabulous with all that chocolate sauce and chocolate ice cream. I have to admit, there was a bit is a fight in the house when we had to decide on which flavour we were going to choose and eventually it came down to a flip of a coin. I am sure husband has probably snuck out and tried the chocolate when I’ve been away.

haagen dazs scoopedIt is not easy to eat a whole pint of Haagen Dazs so I’m not surprised these are called “sharing pots”. There is so much ice cream in each pint with the ice cream being such high quality that you simply have to stick to just a part of a pot, replacing it in the freezer for later. The ice cream doesn’t melt quickly so it is safe to scoop out or eat it straight from the pot.

But here am I telling you all about it when you could experience it for yourself! I’m defaulting to Rafflecopter here because it is easier for me. To be in with a chance to win, leave a comment over 10 words long which describes a moment in history as an ice cream flavour and explain why. For example, I would pick Hapshetsut’s ascension to the throne of Egypt as the first woman pharaoh (she wore a false beard even) as a caramel ice cream with caramelised hazelnuts enrobed in chocolate because she might have had a surprise hard core but she was also sweet to her people. In addition to leaving a comment (you must leave a comment to enter to win and it must contain the historical scene, the ice cream description and explanation as to why), you can also enter by tweeting “I’ve entered to win a case of @haagendazsloves ice cream with @mostlyaboiutchoc here: http://bit.ly/ZOVGFQ” after leaving your comment, liking the Mostly About Chocolate facebook page and following @mostlyaboutchoc. Remember, you must leave a comment to enter to win and the comment must be over 10 words, include the historical moment, ice cream flavour and explanation.

    Mine would be vanilla ice cream with white chocolate chunks and marshmallow swirl, for the first moon landing. Everything was white, hence all the white choices, and the marshmallow swirl would represent the bounce of the astronauts in zero gravity, and the white chocolate chunks as the men in their space suits.

  2. L A Young says:

    the wedding of Diana and Prince Charles – the day was sunny and she looked every inch a princess

    so with that in mind a creamy dreamy ice cream with soft juicy strawberries all swirled in – always remember the taste – always remember her face – beautiful

  3. Rita Mistry says:

    I would pick the Wright Brothers for inventing and building the world’s first successful airplane and making the first controlled, powered and sustained heavier-than-air human flight, on December 17, 1903. Both brothers represent Cookies & Cream – they both compliment one another and without the Wright Brothers where would we be?

  4. nikki hilton says:

    i’d say the day Obama first became the US President – and i’d call that flavour Haagen Daz Coffee- for two reasons – 1) it was a wake-up call to the citizens of the usa, to accept all people as = no matter the skin colour- and 2) cuz his lovely skin reminds me of a coffee latte! 🙂

  5. Jo Young says:

    Wow this got me thinking. I would say When King Arthur burnt the cakes and hid them would be represented by an enormous ice-cream cake like you get in America. It’d be vanilla and swirled with cake bits, raspberries, chocolate and cream!

  6. Suzanne Cooke says:

    The moment Einstein discovered the theory of relativity is like mint ice cream with chocolate flakes. The tingly YES sensation of the mint combined with the self satisfaction of choccy.

  7. iain says:

    mine would be when my daughter passed her driving test that’s historic for me and vanilla ice cream with crushed flake

  8. Karen (@Swimstar2000) says:

    Queens Diamond Jubilee in 2012 and it just had to be strawbeery and cream ice cream – so very British

  9. Hazel Rea says:

    My historical moment is when Archimedes, in his bath, discovered how displacing water could tell you the volume of an irregular shape and ran down the street naked shouting Eureka. This makes me think of a vanilla ice cream (i.e. the water in his bath) with lots of surprising shapes of chocolate in it to represent the irregular shapes he discovered how to measure. Of course it would be called Eureka!

  10. laura banks says:

    i would go with the moment the war ended the hapiness on everyones faces makes me think off chocolate with the indulgence of clotted cream

  11. LINDSEY CLARK says:

    I would choose Mount Vesuvius and the Volcano eruption at Pompeii, Italy in AD79. Why? because Italy is the birthplace of ice cream and a momentous occasion such as the birth of ice cream deserves to be remembered! The flavour would be Tutti Frutti – a flavour which sounds postively Italian and a nod to the tri-colour of the Italian Flag and the flavour and personalitry of Italian life! La Dolce Vita!

  12. melanie stirling says:

    When William Wallace went to battle against Edward,I’m sure he had a wee dram first,I expect everyone did! Whisky ice cream smells like the men would have done and the colour would be similar to that of the clothes they wore.

  13. Catherine Gregory says:

    I would say when Mount Vesuvius erupted leading to the tragedy in Pompeii. It would be a vanilla ice cream with an explosion of raspberry sauce at it’s centre depicting the lava

  14. Laura Pritchard says:

    Leonardo da Vinci painting Mona Lisa could be considered a Pesca (peach) flavoured gelato as he is a sweet & romantic Italian!

  15. Susan Ellams says:

    the war of the roses and the flavour of the ice cream would be white and red rose water. I like a good battle and yorkshire against lancashire was a classic and we won (lancashire)

  16. Christopher Jones says:

    Mine would be Victory in Europe Day, the ice cream would be vanilla with chocolate chips and caramel sauce, why? Because victory always tastes sweet.

  17. Hannah says:

    Margaret thatcher becoming the first female prime minister – chocolate ice cream with biscuit pieces, popping candy and caramel in it.

  18. When Virginia Wade won the Wimbledon singles championship in 1977. I would say strawberry ripple ice cream.

  19. Patricia Edwards says:

    I would choose the moment Roald Amundsen, discovered the South Pole in 1911 and he was the first to reach the North Pole in 1926. My ice cream flavour would be Mint Choc Chip, as both Poles would be in mint condition when he arrived and the choc chips would represent the disturbances left in the snow afterwards. Roald Amundsen disappeared in 1928 taking part in a rescue mission. This disappearance would be likened to the way the ice cream would disappear as well

  20. JULIE B says:

    4th January 1967, The day Donald Campbell, broke the British speed record, my flavour would be Blueberry – to represent ‘bluebird’ his boat, and the blue of the water.

  21. Nicola McC says:

    I’d choose the Battle of Trafalgar which a mixed British berry and French nougat ice cream. The berries mixed in the ice cream would represent the ships and the British and French influences in flavour would represent the two sides.

  22. Angie Hoggett says:

    I would choose the moment Barack Obama was elected as president and the ice cream flavour would be cookie dough because it’s so American and would complement the moment perfectly!

  23. Erica Price says:

    To celebrate their 100th anniversary the ice cream shop Jannetta in St Andrews, Scotland launched a Cranachan flavour ice cream. Cranachan ice cream is delicious and quite grown up and I discovered it when visiting my sister in Perthshire.

  24. Anthea Holloway says:

    I would choose 4th November 1922 when Harold Carter discovered Tutankhamun’s tomb and opened up a tomb of priceless beauty and value – it really was a “Secret Sensations” moment and Haagen Daz Creme Brulee flavour sums it all up!

  25. Rachel W says:

    The day women in the UK won the right to vote. This would be salted caramel icecream, because it might have seemed like a crazy idea to some, but is in fact completely awesome.

  26. Helen Dickinson says:

    I would choose when the women got the vote to vote, I would choose chocolate icecream as it was a sweet moment and lots of colourful sprinkles that are filled with joy! It was a very happy moment!

  27. Emily Hutchinson says:

    I’d represent the sinking of the Titantic with sea green mint ice cream, white meringue icebergs and little chocolate ships.

  28. Sarah Williams says:

    Important historical event is in the UK has to be 1066 Battle of Hastings. A battle between the Norman-French army and the English army (King Harold II).

    Ice cream suitable is Creme Brulee – as there is a defintive struggle between the French and English about who originally came up with the idea. The french state that they came up with the name and the English origins mention that the they called the creme brulee (burnt cream) and it was discovered in Cambridge.

  29. Andrew Halliwell says:

    I’ll go for mint choc chip for the flavour.
    The invention of the world wide web by Tim Berner’s Lee as the historical event.
    Why?
    Well, it was cool, like the mint, how it evolved and totally took over the world, was unexpected (the hidden chocolate chips)…

    And most of all… it was made for sharing.

  30. Cate E says:

    Turkish delight flavoured ice-cream, for the first time my husband and I met (10 years ago now!). Sweet and with an exotic taste, just like our romance and holidays before we had kids!

  31. Sheri Darby says:

    The abolition of slavery and rum and raisin flavour, to celebrate the end of slavery in true Caribbean style

  32. Catherine Thomas says:

    I would choose William Wallace.. And would go for a a whisky flavoured ice cream you would have to be a real Braveheart to enjoy it 🙂

  33. Lydia Houghton says:

    I would choose the moment that Lady Godiva rode through the streets of Coventry on horseback with her ‘raspberry ripples’ on display. 😉

  34. claire griffiths says:

    i would choose chocolate and ice cream and the olymics as it always brings people together and is for everyone

  35. denise walker says:

    1879 the electric light was invented …..

    My Flavour would be vanilla and strawberry swirls with chocolate mini light bulbs because

    just like Secret Sensations without this invention the world seem so gloomy and my days would be so dark :(((((

  36. Stacy Fenemore says:

    Guy Falwkes is Rocky Road for trying to blow up houses of parliment, it sounds like a bad thing but when you delve in you realise just how good it is 😉

  37. Maxine says:

    Man walking on the moon for the fist time – the flavour of vanilla with white fluffy marshmallows signifying the moon, with blue and red sprinkles for the american flag

  38. Linda Sallie Guest says:

    World Wide Web inventor Tim Berners Lee. What a great moment when the whole world could speak to each other and he gave it freely. Amazing man and a visionary. I would have swirls of different types of ice cream, strawberry, blueberry, chocolate vanilla and everything else imaginable. I would include choc drops, rainbow drops and toffee pieces. Each tub would be different and a surprise – just the like the web so that the experience would always be a new one.

  39. sarah lee says:

    I think neopolitan describes the Olympic games here in London that was so hugely successful with all the different nations involved and so many different agilities just like the different flavours and i reckon neopolitan has been around almost as long as the games!

  40. amal says:

    Felix jump, the freedom feeling, the view and the adventure.
    I would pick a raspberry and lemon flavor for that

  41. Tony Haynes says:

    A dessert called ‘Evolution’
    Represents Darwin’s publication of ‘Origin of Species’
    A layered dessert starting with yoghurt ice cream (to represent the simplest bacteria) at the bottom which ‘evolves’ layer by layer into more and more exotic flavours and is topped off with (choc) chips and wafers to represent the transition from biological evolution into computers and artificial intelligence…….. shame really that a computer couldn’t appreciate it (just goes to prove that there are still some things that they can’t beat humans on!)

  42. Rosalind Blight says:

    My moment in history would be when paddington bear was first published. The reason I have chosen this is because I loved paddington bear books and also love reading them to my girls. The ice cream I would choose would be an orange sorbet with chocolate teddies and covered in an orange sauce

  43. Amanda Gregory says:

    My flavour would be Chocolate Fondant, in celebration of Christopher Columbus discovering the Americas in 1492 and him bringing the delicious Cacao beans back to Europe for the very first time.

  44. Sarah Davies says:

    The Event would be the Queen’s Coronation. The flavour would be strawberry and blueberry ripples in vanilla (A patriotic red, white and blue)

  45. Herbert says:
