Free Haagen-Dazs Ice Cream

Can you believe it???? UPS delivered 3 pints of ice cream, 1 pint of frozen yogurt and a box of snack size vanilla & almond bars right to my door this afternoon!!!! Thank you, Farida! Earlier this week she offered an ice cream package prize to the 3 people who could describe what they have learned about the food of Azerbaijan. I honestly am just dumbfounded that I was among the top 3. Thank you again, Farida! Haagen-Dazs ice cream is one of those items that we always buy & trust me, it’s even sweeter when it’s FREE.

These are the new 2008 flavors – SOOOO new that some are still in the special pre-release white packaging. I haven’t yet tried any yet (darn it!), but I bet by Monday I will have tasted them all. I am hastily typing this post because Haagen-Dazs has invited me to share this with 3 of my friends!!!! Yay! The catch is that I only have a couple of days to tell them who to send it to… But, to whom? Hopefully you.

Please take a moment to leave a comment on this post – for fun state where you live (keep it vague – like San Jose, CA) and where your ideal place to reside would be. For me, I totally see myself living in the hills of Umbria (Italy) hiking through olive groves and occasionally unearthing some Etruscan ruin – I might even allow myself a dog to sniff out truffles. I will have Alfredo help me pick out the 3 lucky winners on Monday. Unfortunately, the ice cream is only being offered to US residents, but I promise to send a special surprise to 1 lucky person aboard. I can’t wait to read where everyone’s dream home would be!

Haagen-Dazs Help The Honey Bee

POLL CLOSED – we have our 3 LUCKY winners!!! This was super-easy picking the recipients!



  1. Are you kidding? You are so lucky it’s midnight right now or else I would be at your door with a spoon in hand to help you break open those lids! lol! Häagen-Dazs just so happens to be one of my favorite ice creams! You are so lucky! Congratulations on the yummy treats!

    I live in San Jose, CA.
    My dream home is something like Villa Rinascimentale in Tuscany

  2. OK, so having seen you the other day made me think about how long it’s been since we’ve actually spoken! So, I logged onto your little website to see what you’ve been up to! It must be fate calling me, since you’re offering up free ice cream! We absolutely need to get together, however for now I’ll just enjoy hearing about your wonderful luck!

    I live in San Jose, CA. My dream home would be somewhere in Santa Barbara, near the wonderful ocean and food, with my family close by.

  3. Ohhhh, Haagen Dazs….soo good! I actually watched the ice cream challenge on Food Network when people were in competition to create a new ice cream flavor and I believe it was Sticky Toffee Pudding that won!

    I live in Northern New York in a remote little town about 30 minutes from the St. Lawrence River. My dream home would be in the mountains with a terrific view of the ranges and the blue sky! I’m not to far from the Adirondacks and I’m close enough to that dream home, I just need the property and the money!

  4. Amy, enjoy the ice cream! I am glad you won it:)

  5. OK – it’s Monday! I’m soo happy for you all who left a comment because it makes my decision making quite simple & VERY fair. I will contact you shortly with the information.

    Luv U all!

    Farida, thank you for the ice cream – we have already had TWO pints (on top of cheesecake pops!). AND, we watched The Bee Movie over the weekend which really tied into HD’s Honey Bee campaign.

  6. so many flavours! let me know what the pomegrenate chip one tastes like. sounds well exotic. x

  7. Woo hoo! I am beside myself! What a wonderful wedding anniversary and Mother’s Day celebration this will make! Yum! Thank you, Amy! I LOVE Häagen-Dazs!
