The greatest. Ever.

Few times do I dub things “The Greatest Ever”, but in this case, there is no question.

Häagen-Dazs Chocolate Peanut Butter ice cream is the greatest food substance ever produced by man. Period.

Let it be known that I am passionate about pizza. I love lasagna. I am Cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs, but I am hopelessly addicted to Häagen-Dazs chocolate peanut butter ice cream. I have tried other brands, but often the chocolate ice cream is too sugary or too bland. Cold Stone Creamery uses soft peanut butter that practically dissolves in the ice cream, so it just doesn’t taste right. Baskin Robbins is too sugary with not enough chunks of peanut butter. Thrifty Ice Cream just doesn’t have the richness of the Häagen-Dazs chocolate ice cream, so it is really no contest.

Most other grocery store brands just don’t offer a chocolate peanut butter option at all. It’s like they fear The Dazs, so they don’t even go there.

But even at $3.69/pint, I don’t mind spending more for the Häagen-Dazs. It is too good in every way. It combines the perfect amount of peanut butter with the right amount of chunks. The peanut butter is frozen and it takes some work to get through it, but you get to enjoy it longer. There are really few things that are so rich tasting and so rewarding. It is definitely the Cadillac of ice cream.

My only complaint is that they don’t sell the larger size of this flavor. I have to buy the pint containers, but I don’t know, maybe that’s ok. It forces me to not take too much, as we Americans often do, which protects me from ruining the greatness of this ice cream via over-indulgance. I suppose that in this way, it is difficult to get burned out on it.

I tried to shake up my life recently and try a few other flavors. While they were all good, none of them were great. None of them were even in the same league.

Häagen-Dazs Chocolate Peanut Butter ice cream is like a Stan Musial or an Alber Pujols in a room full of Buddy Biancalanas. It is simply on another level.

You must try this ice cream. When you do, you will have taken your first step into a larger world.

    Settle Down, Elvis. From a guy who owned two hybrids and now concludes they are gay(I would love to own one,I think you’re wrong) we now get this little ice cream rant. We don’t come to HolySmith! for the Katie Couric news, we come here for the Anderson Cooper hard hitting news. Snap out of it man! The Swedish chemicals are getting to you.

    The Swedish chemicals are 86% of the reason why I have the energy to blog. Don’t knock ’em ’till you try ’em.

    Anderson Cooper is as gay as the Toyota Prius.

    The potential for the hybrid technology is amazing, but they need to package it better. The Civic hybrid is decent, but still very limited. If you really want to get one, either wait for the better ones to come out or go back and find a 2004 Civic Hybrid (manual transmission). Mine got 48-51 MPG consistently over the two years I had it. The 2006 with CVT gets consistently 10 MPG less than the 04 did, FYI.

    Did I mention that Anderson Cooper was as gay as the Prius?
