Bringing me to tears...Haagen-Dazs Five Review and Giveaway

**UPDATE** Winner is Mike & Jill (comment #17)
Thanks for playing!

Today is a very sad day.

For a week now I've had something i
n my kitchen that has become a great source of comfort.
For a week I have had something that allowed me to take a moment, to reflect, and even smile.
For a week this little something motivate
d me, encouraged me, and rewarded me to get more work done.

I am, of course, talking about the containers of creamy, all-natural, delicious Haagen-Dazs Five ice cream that Mom C
entral sent me to sample.

The last of the Haagen-Dazs Five ice cream has been consumed.

I. am. crushed.

Haagen-Dazs Five ice cream has just five ingredients:
1. skim milk
2. cream
3. eggs
4. sugar
5. flavor*

*Hold onto your taste buds here because HDFive gives new meaning to flavor with
Ginger, Passion Fruit, Vanilla Bean, Mint, Milk Chocolate, Coffee, and Brown Sugar.

Here's what the Twofer thought:

The magic of Haagen-Dazs Five

These container of goodness encouraged me to get more done...."OK, one more blog post and I can have a spoonful of HDFive Mint!"
And I found the creamy, sweet-but-not-too-sweet flavors gave me that little afternoon lift I needed.
Plus, the HDFive ice cream seems to have fewer calories and fat than regular Haagen-Dazs premium ice cream so there was no guilt (I can convince myself of just about anything).

    I'm a Milk Chocolate lover through and through. Chocolate would be my choice. Although the coffee looks good, too!.

  2. I tweeted and also asked folks to RT!

  3. I just bought some of the ginger - it is awesome.

  4. Milk Chocolate would be the favorite for our home.

  5. I would love to try the ginger. It is one of my favorite flavors and I can't remember seeing it used in ice cream before.
