General Mills launches Häagen-Dazs House pop-up restaurant in OZ via The Taboo Group

archblx_hdas_045wrk-Edit_web.jpgGeneral Mills has engaged The Taboo Group to help launch Häagen-Dazs in the Australian market, and establish the world famous super premium ice cream.

Taboo's concept, Häagen-Dazs House, is a sleek pop-up restaurant with a modern Scandinavian aesthetic. Visitors are invited to take a pint home, order from the dine-in menu, or book the by appointment only experience, The Ultimate Tästing, a 45-minute session led by an official taste technician. Guests are taken through a series of sensory experiments to identify their unique flavour sensitivities and preferences from which their bespoke dish is created.  Melbourne bookings are now sold out and Sydney bookings opening soon.
archblx_hdas_427wrk-Edit_web.jpgBuilt by award-winning architects, Archiblox, and styled by Louisa Curtis, Häagen-Dazs House features ice cream themed art by world-renowned artist Henry Hargraves and menu garnished by chef Jane Lowe, formerly of Lake House.

Says Andrew Machinnon, managing director, The Taboo Group: "We set out to re-launch this brand in Australia by creating the best Häagen-Dazs archblx_hdas_515wrk-Edit_web.jpgexperience in the world. We believe we've done that."

The campaign has been supported by outdoor, print, PR and influencer seeding. Häagen-Dazs House finishes up in Melbourne's Federation Square on 16th of March before migrating to The Rocks in Sydney from 22nd April to 21st May 2016.
