Ice Cream brands such as Ben & Jerry’s and Tipsy Scoop have been selling alcohol-infused ice cream has for a couple of years now. And the U.S.-based Haagen-Dazs has been selling their Spirits Collection in Canada for over a year and a half. But, according to NBC News, Haagen-Dazs will make their boozy ice cream available in the United States starting this April.

The line comes with seven different items, starting with five traditional ice cream pints produced with Irish Cream Brownie, Rum Tres Leches, Bourbon Vanilla Bean Truffle, Stout Chocolate Pretzel Crunch and Bourbon Praline Pecan.

But they also have an Amaretto Black Cherry Almond Toffee flavor which serves as their non-dairy option. And rounding out the set are their Irish Cream cookie squares which are made with a chocolate cookie and Irish Cream-infused ice cream covered in dark chocolate.

Rachel Jaiven, Haagen-Dazs brand manager, says: “The Spirits Collection was expertly crafted to offer new, extraordinary ways to indulge,” Jaiven said. “Each flavor is perfect to pair with your favorite cocktail, elevate a boozy float or simply enjoy on its own.”

She added that the Irish Cream Brownie would be the most popular selection among consumers; it had the most bring-back requests among customers.

Although they won’t be widely available for at least another month, you can go to select Haagen-Dazs locations for taste tests.

Perhaps the most fascinating aspect of this all will be the restrictions on buying it. In this country, you can’t purchase alcohol until you are 21, but according to federal law, anything less than a 0.5% alcohol by volume is not considered to be alcoholic.

However, laws regarding buying alcohol in food, vary by state, which has led many to speculate if the Spirits Collection will be available across all 50 states because of differing laws.

Tipsy Scoop’s booze-infused dessert has a 5% alcohol limit which technically means it’s a food product. However, because the 5% means it’s as strong as a light beer, minors cannot buy it.

Although the ice cream won’t get you even the slightest of tipsy, for those who have made a habit of, or simply tried, mixing alcohol with ice cream and enjoyed it, this announcement will come as a treat. While for others, it’s something new to try out. Read more about it here.
