Haagen Dazs has been selling ice cream since the 1960s and has grown to be one of the biggest ice cream companies in the world. You can find their ice cream for sale in most grocery stores anywhere you go.

It looks like Haagen Dazs took over the old Dairy Queen location in West Yellowstone and that's a smart move by them. West Yellowstone sees millions of visitors yearly and their spot is in the heart of several large hotels.
