Coffee, tea, or perhaps a Häagen-Dazs latte?

Coffee, tea, or perhaps a Häagen-Dazs latte?

Drinking coffee in local terms has always been associated with morning perk-me-ups, whether at home or in the office. To many Singaporeans, a caffeine fix is an absolute essential every day. I have heard of friends who need more than 5 cups of coffee a day to get through the day. And many claimed that coffee can keep the mid-day grogginess at bay.

Well, if you can certainly relate to what I have mentioned above, then you are definitely a coffee addict! Don’t worry, we are not here to judge though. Quite the contrary, here are more reasons to continue your quest for the perfect cuppa.

Renowned ice-cream brand Häagen-Dazs is now redefining the coffee drinking experience with a range of delicious flavoured lattes. That’s right. For those who wish to move on from those kopi or kopi-o days in your local coffeeshops (not that they are bad but hey, we all need a little indulgence sometimes, don’t we?), there is perhaps yet another alternative to whet your appetite – pairing mouth-watering ice-cream with flavoured lattes.

We were invited by the Häagen-Dazs team to try on their new coffee series and are delighted to share some views on the eclectic latte mix.

While I wouldn’t call myself a coffee connoisseur or anything close to that, I think my taste buds could still appreciate coffee that sends those “oooh lala” signals down my throat. Having said that, I did have my favourite picks from the six iconic Häagen-Dazs ice cream flavours paired with illy® coffee. Whether it is macadamia nuts harvested from Hawaii, chocolate from Belgium, vanilla from Madagascar or milk and cream from France, you can look forward to a different sensory experience with each latte.

You can’t go wrong with the Cookies and Cream flavoured latte, a timeless crowd pleaser. I especially love the bits of Oreo cookies that add texture to your tastebuds.

For those who like a more ‘adventurous’ tasting instead of the plain smooth lattes, the Macadamia Nut flavour may add chunks of surprise with its addition of nut bits. Of course you have to love nuts in the first place!

Matcha matcha: I couldn’t have enough of this green tea ice cream scoop!

For those who would not like any coffee in their lattes, the green tea latte may sit well in your palette.

You can expect chunks of strawberry in the strawberry latte, just as crunchy and flavoursome as those in the ice cream. For those who appreciate a bit of sour to their coffee, you may like this.

The Italian-based illy® has been delighting coffee lovers worldwide with its rich and full-bodied, yet velvety smooth coffee for over 80 years. Its signature blend carries a distinctive taste and aroma, crafted through a careful selection of nine variants of Arabica beans that are sourced from across four continents.
