The World’s Most Desirable Ice Cream

Häagen-Dazs have been making ice cream like no other since 1961. Our founder, Reuben Mattus’ vision was to make the most extraordinary ice cream the world has ever tasted, a spoonful of luxury to escape the everyday. And to get there he only used the highest quality, carefully selected ingredients. As Reuben said, ‘If you’re like everyone else, you’re lost’. So we make an ice cream like no other – the best that best can be.

Only Extraordinary Ingredients For The Ultimate Flavour

Extraordinary is not just what we put in, it’s what we leave out. We only use clean label, kitchen-friendly ingredients (all the real stuff!) to make ice cream like no other. We say no to preservatives, stabilizers, colors and palm oil. And we only add natural flavorings. We also refuse to pump our product full of air so that with every spoonful you get less air and more rich and delicious ice cream. Each scoop starts life as only four ingredients – cream, milk, sugar and eggs.

Experience Like No Other

1961 Reuben set out to make an ice cream he could be proud of. We are proud to continue his legacy. We make extraordinary ice cream and create extraordinary moments. Because we believe little luxuries have the power to elevate the everyday.
