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.

        I'm so sad! My favourite Haagen Dazs flavours are gone and I live in Canada and as far as I know...Talenti isn't sold here! At least I haven't been able to find it....

      3. Try the Haagen Daz pistachio gelato.

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

            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.
