The company is rolling out a line of alcohol-infused ice cream treats this month, called Häagen-Dazs Spirits Collection (photo #1).
With flavors made variously with bourbon, rum and liqueurs, each pint contains less than 0.5% alcohol by volume.
Federal law does not consider any beverage that contains less than 0.5% alcohol by volume to be alcoholic. But laws regulating alcohol in food can vary state by state.
Thus, it’s unclear if the collection will be available in all 50 states, but ask your grocer. Or better yet, see our tip below.

There are also Irish Cream Cookie Squares, chocolate cookies topped with Irish Cream ice cream and dipped in dark chocolate (photo #3). Here’s more information about all the flavors.
Each pint in the Spirits Collection contains less than 0.5% alcohol per volume. That’s just half a teaspoon in the whole pint!
