While almost everyone who owns an ice cream company has recently introduced Greek frozen yogurt, Häagen-Dazs has, so far, stayed away from the trend. However, instead of going Greek, Häagen-Dazs has decided to go Italian.

According to a post at The Ice Cream Informant, Häagen-Dazs has released a line of gelato. However, it isn’t Häagen-Dazs’ first gelato effort. A quick Google search found that they released a line of the Italian dessert in 2000.

The new Häagen-Dazs Gelato line comes in seven flavors:

Black Cherry Amaretto – Blends black cherries with amaretto, an Italian liqueur (1/2 cup serving has 240 calories, 9 grams of fat, 5 grams of saturated fat, 26 grams of sugar, and 4 grams of protein)

Cappuccino – Combines cappuccino and sweet cream gelato (1/2 cup serving has 230 calories, 10 grams of fat, 6 grams of saturated fat, 23 grams of sugar, and 4 grams of protein)

Dark Chocolate Chip – Mixes bittersweet chocolaty chips into dark chocolate gelato (1/2 cup serving has 270 calories, 12 grams of fat, 8 grams of saturated fat, 24 grams of sugar, and 7 grams of protein)

Limoncello – Combines lemon gelato with vodka (1/2 cup serving has 240 calories 9 grams of fat, 5 grams of saturated fat, 26 grams of sugar, and 4 grams of protein)

Sea Salt Caramel – Blends sea salt caramel ribbons with caramel gelato (1/2 cup serving has 270 calories, 11 grams of fat, 6 grams of saturated fat, 29 grams of sugar, and 4 grams of protein)

Stracciatella – Combines chocolaty shavings with sweet cream gelato (1/2 cup serving has 270 calories, 13 grams of fat, 7 grams of saturated fat, 25 grams of sugar, and 4 grams of protein)

Vanilla Bean – Do I really need to explain this one? (1/2 cup serving has 230 calories, 10 grams of fat, 6 grams of saturated fat, 23 grams of sugar, and 4 grams of protein)

    And still no hazelnut. And still I grieve.

    I tried the cappuccino gelato today, and it was pretty good. It was very smooth and creamy. The coffee flavor was more intense than it is in their coffee ice cream, so that was a plus. My only complaint was that they swirl in sweet cream gelato, and that makes it a little too sweet for my own personal taste. I would prefer to have just the cappuccino flavored gelato by itself. Overall, it’s not bad. I would buy it again. I haven’t seen it in grocery stores yet, but they do have it at Walmart.

    Like Jessica, I would love to see them bring back hazelnut.

    I’ve also tried the dark chocolate chip. I’m not sure why this is called gelato or why it’s “dark chocolate” because it tastes EXACTLY like their chocolate ice cream, not their dark chocolate ice cream, but with chocolate chips.

    I tried the Limoncello and Black Cherry Ammaretto today. I am hooked big time. Both are creamy and smooth. My favorite is definitely the Limoncello though. I could eat a whole container in one sitting it is so smooth and addictive.
