Haagen Daz did away with Pistachio and Cookies and Cream

I have been searching everywhere for the last two weeks. I finally just went to their website, and pulled up their flavors, and both are gone. Every store I’ve visited had plenty of pineapple coconut and rum raisin. How could these flavors be more popular than cookies and cream?
Anyone know if there are any other good brands for these flavors?

  1. Talenti gelato for pistachio, actually even better than haagen daz.

      Thanks. Does it have nuts in it?
      ETA - Of course it contains nuts, doh! I was hoping it would have little nut pieces like HD.

        Yup. Crunchy nut bits too. Its very rich, but even a tiny portion is very satisfying.

    2. Try the Haagen Daz pistachio gelato.

        Didn't know they had it in gelato. Thanks!

        1. re: EM23

          There is no cookies and cream gelato though.

      2. Is that why Haagen Daz was on sale at my local grocery for $1.99 last week?

          I have never found it for that low...must be trying to sell off pineapple coconut,

        2. I don't see pistachio, but Graeter's makes a good product, and cookies & cream is one of their flavors

            C&C is my absolute favorite, but I see they make orange cream and blueberry pie flavors as well. Can't wait! Thank you.

          2. "How could these flavors be more popular than cookies and cream? "

            Or pistachio for that matter. This is really an odd marketing decision.

              The decision to get rid of such classics, yet keep flavors like white chocolate raspberry truffle and green tea ice cream, seems almost criminal.
              I spoke with a Pathmark employee yesterday who was stocking the ice cream shelves and he said that HD is moving away from ice cream and focusing more on their gelato, sorbet and bar product lines. This is obvious since what was once a full case of HD ice cream is now reduced to just a few shelves in all of the stores that I have been in recently.

            2. Haagen Daz is now owned and controlled by Nestle...decision are based on cost not customer needs/desires.\

                I guess pistachios are getting too expensive. still, I can't believe they got rid of pistachio flavor out of all. It's my husband's favorite. Luckly, Talenti has it and it's on sale at my local supermarket for $2.88 for whole 16 oz.

                  Talenti is really amazing (although i must admit i wait til sales to buy it!), their alphonso mango and blood orange are the best most intense flavor i've ever had from store bought (most similar to grom)

              2. They have the C&C in limited edition it's called "Midnight Cookies and Cream".

                1. I have been searching for Cookies & Cream for months now - finally went to their web site, and realized they no longer have it! I'm devastated! Just seeing your post and realizing pistachio is gone too - another great flavor. I did see that they have midnight cookies and cream in their limited edition line, but I don't want the chocolate base. I also like Breyer's Cookies & Cream - you should give that a whirl. Good luck!
