In Haagen Dazs Dulce De Leche you will find nothing but really very good caramel. Even the caramel flavored ice cream that encases the thick ribbons of really very good caramel is really very good caramel flavored ice cream. Now you might think it would be a caramel overdose to have caramel running through caramel ice cream, but think again. The ice cream flavor is just subtle enough to enhance the thick, rich, luscious, golden, melt in your mouth, caramel ribbohaqhgiertgqpegja. Oops. Sorry. I was drooling on the keyboard and my fingers slipped. Excuse me, I think I need to go stick my head in the freezer... you know, the freezer that currently holds my second pint of Haagen Dazs Dulce De Leche Really Very Good Caramel ice cream.

Sweet Mother Dairy of Ice Cream! This stuff is soooooooo good. So good. Oh so so so so good. They say you shouldn't judge a book by its cover and I'm here to say that you should never judge an ice cream by its flavor name. For years now I have been passing up Haagen Dazs Dulce De Leche ice cream simply because it was called Dulce De Leche. Sweet of milk is the literal translation but it also means caramel. I like caramel. I really like good caramel. I adore really good caramel. So why didn't I try this ice cream sooner? Because it is called Dulce De Leche and even though I logically know that it is caramel my brain-taste-to-tongue-memory-reactions don't think of caramel. They think of either sweet milk or some weird Mexican caramel wannabe. Yeah, my brain is weird. But, even if it was called Caramel Ice Cream I might have passed it up because caramel in ice cream comes in all shades of not good. Like the caramel in Breyers Overload Waffle Cone (Sorry Breyers, but that is bad caramel).
