“Häagen-Dazs Black Walnut tastes good all the time.”
I’ll have to admit, when I heard his comeback when he was asked if he’s the flavor of the month, I thought it was pretty cute. Albeit a tad narcissistic, it was a playful retort that wasn’t defensive. Then, I read this article.
When contacted by ABC News, Hazel, at the Häagen-Dazs customer service line, said, “We don’t sell black walnut. The sales nationally did not meet our expectations, unfortunately. It did not behoove us to continue with the product.”
Um, oops. Fell short of expectations and was discontinued? Yikes. Shoulda gone with something classic, sells, and is not going anywhere anytime soon. Häagen-Dazs Chocolate Chocolate Chip! Oh well. Cease and desist with the black walnut response, pizza man.
Of course, the best ice cream in the universe is Baskin-Robbins Daquiri Ice. It was also Bing Crosby’s favorite of the 31 Flavors. If the Häagen-Dazs Black Walnut proves prophetic, he can use Daquiri Ice the next time if he runs for POTUS. It was discontinued, but came back by popular demand.
