Haagen-Dazs’ Rum Raisin is a long-standing seasonal joy, delicious by itself or on a warm piece of pie. But we also go gaga for:

  • Pumpkin. All the pumpkin pie spices dance harmoniously in this pumpkin-colored and flavored ice cream.
  • Peppermint Stick. One of our favorite flavors, a beacon of our holiday season.

    TALENTI GELATO

    This NIBBLE Top Of The Week has two must-try seasonal flavors:

    DISHES TO MAKE WITH HOLIDAY ICE CREAM FLAVORS

  • Cake & Pie. Serve angel food cake, loaf cake or pie with a holiday à la mode garnish.
  • Hot Drinks. Add a spoonful to coffee, instead of milk; or to hot chocolate, instead of whipped cream.
  • Ice Cream Cake. Make a holiday ice cream cake with one or two different flavors.
  • Ice Cream Cones. Make the kids holiday ice cream cones with red and green sprinkles.
  • Ice Cream Sandwiches. Make holiday ice cream sandwiches in assorted flavors. You can make them with cookies or with thin slices of pound cake. You can use red and green sprinkles to decorate the edges.
  • Milkshake Shooters. Serve a holiday milkshake shooter with dessert (follow this recipe without the cardamom).
  • Sundae. Make a holiday parfait or sundae with a scoop of two or three different flavors.
