Haagen-dazs Pop-up Melbourne

Haagen-Dazs Melbourne popup - Federation Square

It only takes one mouthful of ice-cream for you to fall in love with Haagen-dazs. It’s smooth, creamy and the flavours are incredible. What makes it even more loveable is that each flavour is carefully crafted with pure ingredients, which makes the flavours more intense, real tasting and full of flavour. None of that syrup or fake flavouring stuff and by golly it makes a difference. Haagen-dazs is visiting Melbourne and have created a little pop up restaurant at Federation square so best you be making a trip down there soon. It’s only here for a couple more weeks and it’s definitely worth the visit.

They have a little shed set up at Federation square where you can sit down and enjoy your ice-cream in a booth.

Or you can sit outside in the sun amongst the park like atmosphere with the white chairs, big umbrellas and astroturf. Either way the icecream is awesome and your seating choice with not effect the quality of your icecream.

Haagen-Dazs Melbourne popup - All the icecream

We tried the Belgian chocolate which had a beautifully intense dark chocolate flavour. It was like eating quality chocolate in ice cream form. It was rich and velvety.

Haagen-Dazs Melbourne popup - Strawberries and cream

Haagen-Dazs Melbourne popup – Strawberries and cream

The strawberries and cream was amazing. I loved it. They use strawberries that are picked in their peak season so the strawberries are irresistible. It literally tasted like the strawberry ice-cream you get at a strawberry farm.

Haagen-Dazs Melbourne popup - Salted caramel

The salted caramel had little bits of caramel throughout the icecream and was topped with a sticky caramel and salted butter sauce. The caramel had a lovely flavour not too sweet, not too salty, just right.

Haagen-Dazs Melbourne popup - Macadamia nut brittle

The macadamia nut brittle was vanilla icecream with toffee dipped macadamias. We all know vanilla and macadamia work, creamy and creamy. It was smooth with a bit of crunch.

Haagen-Dazs Melbourne popup - Mint choc love

Haagen-Dazs Melbourne popup – Mint choc love

I’m big on choc mint, it’s one of my fave flavours so I was so happy to see it was one of the twelve flavours touring Australia. But they do it a little differently at Haggen-dazs and it is absolutely delicious. They have actual pieces of spearmint leaves and chunks of chocolate fudge throughout the minty icecream. Love love love!

The caramel biscuit and cream was a caramel icecream with pieces of crunchy speculoos biscuit pieces. Kind of like cookies and cream with caramel icecream and caramel biscuits.

Haagen-Dazs Melbourne popup - Melted

Haagen-Dazs Melbourne popup – Melted

We went to the Haagen-dazs POP up after going to the Andy Warhol and Ai Wei Wei POP art exhibition at NGV. So naturally when i looked at my almost finished plate of Haagen-dazs instead of seeing melted ice cream, i saw but a masterpiece. A piece i call ‘pop n daz’ ice cream on cardboard plate.

All of the flavours were super delicious and it makes me sad they wont be around for long. Also unlike some places that only take cash, this place only takes card, so bring your debit/credit card along. This Melbourne pop-up is open until the 16th of April and then it heads onto Sydney so make it down there some time now. And if you’re like me and already feeling a bit of separation anxiety, maybe stock up with a few take home tubs to eat when they leave.

I heart Haagen-dazs!
