It's six hours ahead of CDT for me, which would put it at the same time it is in Copenhagen.

Dare I ask why they center on Copenhagen time for an American brand?

Wiki
Reuben Mattus invented the "Häagen-Dazs" name supposedly as a tribute to Denmark's exemplary treatment of its Jews during the Second World War, and included an outline map of Denmark on early labels. Mattus claimed the name was "Danish-sounding," although it is not Danish. Danish has neither an umlaut ä (rather, the ligature æ is the corresponding counterpart) nor the zs letter combination, nor did the name have any meaning in any language before its creation. Mattus felt that Denmark was known for its dairy products and had a positive image in the United States.

Haagen-Dazs is a place, too?

Everyone here is invited to join my class action lawsuit against Haagen-Dazs for having a free cone "day" that is limited to only four hours.
