A Definitive Ranking of the Best Häagen-Dazs Flavors

When it comes to dessert, it can be pretty hard to beat the classics.

This is especially true when it comes to ice cream, which is why Häagen-Dazs has remained a staple on grocery store shelves and in our own freezers (not to mention our hearts) for so very long. Calling it classic is not to say that it's boring, however—far from it, in fact. This creamy, dreamy frozen dessert has delighted our taste buds for years and years, but we must admit that some flavors simply tend to satisfy a little bit better than others. So, what exactly are the best of the best flavors worth a coveted spot in your freezer (or in your cone)? We've done the hard work for you and created this definitive ranking of the best Häagen-Dazs flavors.

8. White Chocolate Raspberry Truffle

This Häagen-Dazs flavor hits a lot of the main points for being on our list of the best, as it features white chocolate ice cream blended beautifully with chunks of chocolate truffles and a raspberry swirl for tartness. If you're a fan of raspberry jam or the raspberry truffles in every box of chocolates, you need to add this one to your list.

7. Butter Pecan

Say hello to one of the most underrated ice cream flavors out there: Butter Pecan. We truly believe that Häagen-Dazs nailed it with their rendition of the classic buttery, slightly salted flavor, which is rich in caramelly goodness and texture thanks to the pecans littered throughout.

6. Chocolate

Remember what we said about basic not being boring? This flavor proves that notion to a T. Honestly, the Häagen-Dazs chocolate flavor should be the chocolate ice cream that all others are compared against, as it really is just that good.

5. Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

No need to worry about salmonella when you dip your spoon into this vat of cookie dough, as this Häagen-Dazs flavor is packed with chocolate chip cookie dough bits inside of a rich vanilla ice cream base. If you want something to really chew on with your ice cream fix, this should be your go-to pick.

4. Double Belgian Chocolate Chip

Speaking of chocolate chip, this flavor ranks highly in our books thanks to the devilishly indulgent amount of chocolate that it features. Naturally, those who aren't big "chocolate people" might want to scroll away, but for the rest of us who know how to enjoy the more decadent flavors, this one is a total winner.

3. Dulce de Leche

Don't worry, caramel lovers. We haven't forgotten about you. The dulce de leche flavor of Häagen-Dazs had to be included on this ranking of the best, as it's a divinely thick and creamy passport to caramel paradise (even though dulce de leche and caramel are technically two different things).

2. Coffee

The coffee Häagen-Dazs flavor consistently ranks highly for fans across the globe, and it isn't difficult to see why after dipping your spoon in for yourself. It's a total crowd-pleaser thanks to its simplicity, leaving the only non-lovers being those who just don't like coffee at all. However, we promise it's worth a try even if you're normally not a big sipper of the caffeinated creation.

1. Caramel Cone

Caramel? Check. Chocolate? Check. Dreamy chocolate-covered waffle cone pieces? Double check. This flavor elevates the classics to a new level, bringing in some texture that reminds us of our favorite bite of a classic ice cream cone (the bottom that's been soaked by all the ice cream and chocolate, of course). Unless you just don't like caramel at all, this flavor should be one of your standbys when you head to get your fix of Häagen-Dazs frozen goodness. With so much going for it, we simply had to give the number one spot on our definitive ranking to this one.
