Haagen-Dazs Cranberry Blueberry Sorbet - Review

Haagen-Dazs Cranberry Blueberry Sorbet
I'm having this pint of Haagen-Dazs Cranberry Blueberry Sorbet.

I've been migrating over to the sorbets lately, mostly because it's fat-free. It seems I'm still a junk food junkie, but one that's put focus on slimming down.

Anyways, last month I said I was eating a pint of Ben & Jerry's "Berried Treasure" sorbet, which is comparable to this in that theirs has Blueberry & Blackberry swrils in a lemon-sorbet base.

This Haagen-Dazs, on the other hand, still uses lemon, and as a result has the same tanginess as the Ben & Jerry's. The difference is that the cranberry & blueberry are blended into the lemon, and not swirled. The result is an even taste all throughout the pint.

The verdict?

Well. I think I prefer the Ben & Jerry's. I mean, both brands effectively have the same lemon tanginess with the berry flavors, except the Ben & Jerry's, by using swirled berries, tends to provide some flavor variation. That is. sometimes you get mostly lemon, sometimes you get mostly berries, sometimes both.

The Haagen-Dazs is still yummy, but if I had to be stuck on a tiny island in the middle of the Pacific, and could only choose between one brand, I'd go for the "Berried Treasure", and no pun intended.

Yep, you are a junk food junkie :)
I was wondering what is the total calory count of a pint of sorbet (even though it is fat free.)

haha true Casey. The whole, its fat free so it must be good defense-worse than the infamous "Twinkie Defense". That pint has 440 calories to it's name...sorry to burst your healthy bubble. If it makes you feel better, I just weighed my snacks and found out I'm an extra hundred calories everyday without knowing it. So much for that.

Sorry, but Fat doesn't make you Fat.

Perfect for Summer Desserts! Especially when you're in a summer vacation/trip with your family or buddies.

I look at the sorbet flavors and consider them but always go for the same flavor -- coffee -- the only flavor of Haagen Dazs I've bought for over fifteen years. Sad I know. Good thing it is not on sale all the time.
