In a news release, Haagen-Dazs said the ice cream will contain about 8.5 percent milk fat, just a little more than half of what is in the regular Haagen-Dazs ice cream. Both vegetable flavors will be sold in 3.7 ounce containers and will sell for the equivalent of $2.80.
According to Eater National, the Tomato Cherry and Carrot Orange flavors join Haagan-Dazs’ “unorthodox Japan flavors”
of rose and royal cassis milk.
