Sample Month Day 25: Break

This is where I've run out of time to try new samples and out of energy to post an actual review. Maybe I can squeeze in a double decker post to make up for it later. For now, let's talk about ice cream.

Did you know there were THIS MANY Haagen Dazs flavours?


And did you know that the ones with red squares are the flavours I've tried, the yellow stars are the flavours I would love to try, and the black arrows are the flavours I detest?


Another one that I love is the Bailey's Irish Cream flavour, which wasn't featured on the website for some reason.

God, I'm tired. What's everyone up to this weekend?

  1. Aw, don't worry, we all need a break sometimes. You're not a sample-reviewing machine, Liz. :)

    Hmm, I haven't had Haagen Dazs ice cream in years -- I'm missing out, aren't I?

    1. I said I would, so I wanted to! :)

      You are definitely missing out! So rich and creamy and all around awesome. I'm always happy when there's a tub in the freezer. :)

    1. Today is a nice day off so I hope to be back in form shortly!

      I never see the LE flavours and always end up getting the Bailey's, coffee, mango or vanilla (yay!). Ice cream doesn't have to be complicated. :)

  3. Aw, I like green tea. *sniffle* We end up with vanilla quite frequently as well...ice cream doesn't have to be complicated.

    1. I can eat green tea ice cream if I have to but I just don't enjoy green tea on its own very much. It was such a disappointment the first time I tried green tea ice cream at a Japanese restaurant and realized I hated it. :(((

  4. Yeah I hate rum raisin anything. Blechhhh!
    I'm tired too! Sigh. I need another holiday haha. Sometimes I just feel like running away....:)

    1. Rum or raisin but the combo is just weird for some reason. :(

      I have that same feeling every other day, so I just decided to put my head down and work my way through the remainder of 2012. When I put my head back up, hopefully things will be better. :)

  5. oh my, I used to love rum raisin when I lived outside of the US... I have yet to find an acceptable replacement here in the US.

    Well deserved break, I couldnt imagine coming up with enough good content to post everyday'

    1. Haagen Dazs!!! lol

      My content has definitely been suffering but I was determined to go through the piles of samples! Thank you!

  6. Haha, awesome post Liz :) I'm not sure I've ever tried any Haagen Dazs ice cream before...which is weird, now that I think about it. I see it all the time! Probably too expensive for me lol. I'm not a mint + chocolate fan (I'm assuming that's what mint chip is?) so I wouldnt' like that either.

    It's 7pm and I just woke up from a nap on the couch, so yea, I'm feeling you on the tired business! ~old ladies unite~

    1. What WHAT!! Okay, so it is pricey for a tiny tub of ice cream but you deserve a treat once in a while other than Chanel or Burberry sometimes and THIS is it! I don't need mint in my ice cream, which is why I don't like mint chip - like, I'll chew gum if I want some mint in my life... or apply minty green nail polish... but in ice cream? Bring on the chocolates and caramel swirls and marshmallows, man! Honestly, HD is so rich and decadent, you won't regret it. :)

      It's 11:35pm here and I am POOPED!

  7. Yes, let's talk about ice cream! You can never talk about ice cream too much. Ok, I don't understand why people like mint chip I DO NOT GET IT. Haagen Dazs is delicious. You know what's really good though? Ben & Jerry's Creme Brulee ice cream. That caramelized sugar swirl nestled in custard ice cream mmmmm.

    Hope you get your rest! It's a well deserved break, you've been on a blogging roll lately.

    1. I don't get it either but shhhhhh... they are among us. :x

      I haven't had B&J Creme Brulee but now I must! I love their Cherry Garcia but ultimately prefer HD when it comes to rich flavours like that. Ugh, I need some ice cream RIGHT NOW.

      When are you done school for the term??

  8. COFFEE IS THE BEST FLAVOUR, EVER.

    I might be a little biased.

    Although I would LOVE to try Bananas Foster ice cream...

    Now I really want ice cream but I can't, not just because I don't have any at home and don't want to venture out to get some (it is 5:00am, after all), but also because I'm sick and if I eat ice cream, I would be coughing up a lung and those coughs would be PHLEGM CITY.

    1. It's a toss-up between the coffee and the Bailey's... I love both so very much!

      Phlegm city is not a nice place to go to, but when you're sick, I think eating a whole tub of HD is totally justified. :) Hope you feel better soon!

  9. I'm impressed at how long you've kept at it - reviews are HARD WORK!!! I simply cannot roll out review after review after review so go ahead and have a well earned break - and a Haagen Daz obviously!!! Yum:) *licks lips*

    1. I try to draft a few and schedule them at once so that I'm not totally floundering the night before on three hours of sleep. Usually I publish posts spontaneously though, so this has been a challenge.

      Glad you share the HD love. :D

  10. Bailey's Irish Cream flavor?? WHERE?!! Nom!!!

    I looooove Haagen-Dazs!! Their Coffee one is the BEST I've tried. Also, have you tried their Banana Split one?? OMG, it's sooooo addicting (I once ate an entire tub in under 10 minutes flat :/)!! Pralines & Cream is good too, and I'm with you on the Rum Raison (ick!) but I actually think the Green Tea one sounds good. I've had green tea ice cream at a sushi place near my bf's house and it is AMAZING, so I imagine if anyone could beat it, it would be Haagen-Dazs! Mmmm...now I want ice cream!

    1. (obviously if I hadn't been so excited, I would have realized that no, you haven't tried Banana Split because you didn't put a red square around it. See what happens when someone mentions ice cream around me?! :P)

      Delete
    2. I don't see the Bailey's flavour around anymore, which makes me really sad. But they used to be at any old supermarket. :(

      HD is poorly stocked though, so I haven't even SEEN Banana Split around much less tried it. That's why I keep trying the same flavours over and over again! I have half a tub of Coffee left in the freezer right now, which I am going to devour as soon as I finish replying to comments, LOL.

  11. Oh gosh, Strawberries, Pralines, and Green Tea. They all look delicious; I'm tempted to pick one up next time I'm in store :)

    1. I hope you do! I'm sure you can use the treat. :)

  12. I think you're doing an AMAZING job knocking out these sample reviews, so a break is well deserved :>
    Haagen Dazs and Ben & Jerry are so expensive in Canada so I rarely buy them here, but rather stock up when I visit the States ;)

    1. Thanks, Angela! I don't buy them that often either but they are a nice treat once in a while. Kind of like buying the odd high-end makeup instead of the drugstore stuff, lol.
