PHOTOS: Häagen-Dazs Ice Cream Shop Opens in Place of Ben & Jerry’s at Universal Studios Florida

We learned back in November that Universal Orlando Resort’s contract with Ben & Jerry’s had ended when Schwab’s Pharmacy reopened serving Häagen-Dazs ice cream. Since then, we’ve been keeping an eye on the old Ben & Jerry’s shop as it was remodeled to become a Häagen-Dazs location, and it opened today.

On the sidewalk, the iron sign now advertises Häagen-Dazs instead of Ben & Jerry’s.

The sign above the door is a standard Häagen-Dazs sign, lacking the neon that Ben & Jerry’s sported.

The brick facade of the building remains the same.

Inside, the walls have mostly been painted white, while they were previously different colors and one had a cow mural.

These photos mirror the ice cream’s “Simply made extraordinary” message. A tagline of “Milk, cream, sugar, eggs, vanilla, y nada más (nothing else)” can be seen in one of the frames to the far right.
