Dreyer Loses Truck Deathmatch To Häagen-Dazs

Jay writes: “I caught these two photos on my way in to work today in San Diego. At first I just thought is was amusing that the Dreyers truck was on its side, it really is the little things in life that make it worth living. Then I saw the Haagen-Dazs ice cream truck nearby, standing in victory. Apparently Haagen-Dazs is no longer satisfied with being the superior ice cream, they must now ram their competition off the road.”

You never knew the ice cream bizness was so mad gangsta, did you? This is worse than the time Vanilla Bean took out Heath Bar Crunch. Bigger picture inside…

    They are actually the same company…my store gets Haagen-Daaz deliveries from an Edy’d / Dryer’s truck weekly. The second truck was probably to unload the wrecked one.

    Somebody might have died. It’s funny!

    Ben and Jerry’s VS. Haagen-Dazs

    Ice Cream? Or Death. Now which will it be… hmm… I’ll take the Ice Cream, thankyou.

    I’ve always imagined delivery companies having “turf wars”. If a FedEx truck were to run into a UPS truck, they’d have to fight and the winner takes the other truck’s packages. Then when your UPS package gets delivered by FedEx they’d tell you something like “You are with FedEx now BITCH! Don’t you forget it.” Ah yes, I have too much time in my hands.

    Dreyer’s and Haagen-Dazs are both owned by Nestles so I’m sure the one truck was there to offload /salvage product from the other. Kind of ruins the story, doesn’t it.

    Now that is ICE COLD!

    Get it? :D

    The Haagen-Dazs truck looks to be in good shape for plowing over another truck. And it might look like Dreyer’s got owned but it turns out to be the opposite:

    So there’s one truck near the other with no apparent damage and we’re assuming this was a death match? Worst post ever.

  11. DrGirlfriend says:

    @topgun: Nah. I can still picture them hating each other, fighting over Nestle’s love and attention.

    Haagen Dazs o/

    @hexychick: It’s not meant to be serious, it’s just there to lighten up our day.

  13. catcherintheeye says:

    Haagen-Dazs FTW

  14. IphtashuFitz says:

    @topgun: Party pooper! May you get the mother of all ice cream headaches!

  15. Balisong says:

    @hexychick: And to think I was just about to ask where all the “Hey why is this on Consumerizt?!!one” posts were.

  16. AbsoluteIrrelevance says:

    The Haagen-Daz truck should tow the Dreyer’s truck to the shop.

  17. boandmichele says:

    @DrGirlfriend: serious posts are serious.

  18. boandmichele says:

    lol nevermind, that was directed at topgun. stupid greasemonkey script.

  19. snoop-blog says:

    ice cream….is fire. especially when you have the munchies. i’ll kill a whole gallon of haagen dazs.

    on the real though, baskin robbins has the BEST ice cream. chocolate peanut butter chunk. can’t be beat.

  20. GenXCub says:

    I’m sure Coldstone Creamery stopped by the scene with 2 of their giant stainless steel steamed-rice-scoopers-that-they-use-for-ice-cream and made a custom flavor from both trucks.

  21. Balisong says:

    @GenXCub: I’m actually more into Maggie Moo’s since I tried their red velvet ice cream with chocolatey mix-ins.

    Ben&Jerry’s is still the best though.

  22. snoop-blog says:

    anybody else hate frozen custard?

  23. smallestmills says:

    Death by…Chocolate?

  24. Juliekins says:

    Haagen-Dazs Dulce de Leche FTW!

  25. Hawkins says:

    Excuse me Mr Popken, but the word “deathmatch” is generally used as a single word. See [en.wikipedia.org] and [en.wikipedia.org]) .

  26. Anomaly69 says:

    LOL, that’s a pretty funny set of pics. On a side note, I used to work for Dreyer’s and they actually make the ice cream for Hagen Das.

    @Morgan: @Balisong:

    Sorry, but I don’t find accidents funny at all.

  28. dantsea says:

    @hexychick: No one really fucking cares, but thanks for sharing your opinion on what you personally don’t find funny.

  29. bhall03 says:

    @Omi: I didn’t know Haagen-Dazs made donuts?

  30. aquanetta says:

    That is classic! Reminds me of the overturned Campbell’s soup truck that stopped traffic on 5 south for 4+ hours a few years ago.

  31. viriiman says:

    @HRHKingFriday: Well we’re all out of ice cream. We didn’t expect such a rush.

  32. cde says:

    @Hawkins: Excuse me Mr. Hawkins, but the wikipedia is generally not a valid reference.

  33. frankieman70 says:

    this is great

  34. kbarrett says:

    @CDE: True … but Uncyclopedia is always a valid reference.

    “Sorry, but I don’t find accidents funny at all.”

    @Hexychick: How can I put this…

    A goyishe Italian guy – who was too young to have ever witnessed the atrocities of the Holocaust first-hand – made a slapstick comedy about a Jew living in a concentration camp with his five-year-old son. The main character (played by that same goyishe Italian guy) dies at the hands of the Nazis after a life of daily torment.

    This comedy won 55 awards, had instant worldwide acclaim, and was the late Pope’s favorite movie.

    Laugh a little.

    I could totally see the Haagen-Dazs guy flashing some gang signs as he drove past. H-D 4 Life, Fools!

  39. Swins says:

    Why let the facts ruin a good story:
    Both brands are owned by the same company.
    The one truck shows no damage at all.
    It is more probable that one truck is there to offload product so it doesn’t get ruined then there have been a “death match”

    Misleading Pics

    Dreyer owns Haagen Dazs…..I think the other truck is there to transfer goods from downed truck. Waste of time plus this is from 2008???
