Haagen Dazs Acai Berry Sorbet

Jan 29

haagen dazs reserve acai berry sorbetDoes it get any better? Okay so there’s 120 calories in a 1/2 cup, who cares? This isn’t your typical sorbet! The marketing team has done a great job explaining the flavor of this tempting product:

The nutritious and complex Açai (ah-sigh-EE) berry offers this tantalizing sorbet notes of sweet blueberries, wild blackberries and a hint of grape, all delivered through a velvety, pear-like texture.

Doesn’t look like it’s available up in Canada, but if you’re in the USA use Haagen Dazs’ store locator to find out where you can pick some up! And if you can figure out how to ship a sorbet, send some up to BC, Canada!
