Ice cream review: Häagen-Dazs Banana Split

Ice cream review by John
Score: 4 out of 5 scoops
Company: Häagen-Dazs

If you want the pleasure of a banana split without all the messy clean-up, you need to try Banana Split ice cream from Häagen-Dazs.

What you've got here is a mixture of banana ice cream with whipped cream, then a fudge swirl and pieces of cherry and strawberry added in. Basically, just what you might expect in a banana split, right? Only, and this is a bit difficult to explain, here it's just about perfect.

The Häagen-Dazs people did a solid job with their base, the banana and whipped cream. Both are balanced quite well here, and the fudge swirl is just right, enough to bring a little of that chocolate fudge flavor without going overboard. The fruit pieces are also a nice tough, adding a little texture and a hint of flavor without burdening the ice cream.

As with all Häagen-Dazs flavors, this one is quite smooth.

Do I have any complaints, especially since I didn't give a full 5 out of 5 scoops for a score? No, no complaints, but my personal preference would have been for the fudge and perhaps the whipped cream to have been just the tiniest big stronger. But those are personal preferences, and I realize others might want something different.


  1. i'm eating it right now; it's disgusting

  2. Disgusting indeed.


  4. That's strange. I agree with the review. Maybe a 5 scoop rating for me. However, I've found many online comments that it's not good at all.

  5. I love this flavor, it's one of my favorites. Because the banana is perfect, the rest is pretty spot on.
