What I'm Eating - Haagen Daz Reserve, Hawaiian Lehua Honey & Sweet Cream

OK, so regular Haagen Daz was on sale at Foodland at 2 for $5 but I guess they forgot to tell the cashier that the Reserve was a different price...lol... Watched the cashier scan the pint and then manually change the price to the same price as the regular Haagen Daz...Ok, whatevers... I ended up buying three pints(2 reserve & 1 regular), all at the same price. I'll try to eventually cover all three flavors...

Here's a flavor with a Hawaiian connection...it's called, "Hawaiian Lehua Honey & Sweet Cream". The name says it all...it's sweet cream ice cream with honey. Flavor Notes on the container state, "the Lehua Blossom imparts a unique floral notes to this rare honey which is balanced by a rich sweet cream". Appearance is of a creamy white ice cream with swirls of light caramel...guess that's the honey. How does it taste? Sweet.... you get a little of the cream initially but the honey dominates once it comes into play... And, to me, it's a rich dark honey taste...it's interesting. By the way, lehua honey comes from the lehua blossom which is the flower of the Ohi'a tree...usually found on the Big Island of Hawaii in the volcano area. If you like really sweet stuff, this might be the ice cream for you...
