Ben & Jerry's unveils new range of ice cream flavors

Published 17 January 2018

US-based ice cream company Ben & Jerry's has unveiled a new range of ice cream flavors.

This year the ice cream company is dishing up an innovative line of truffle-inspired indulgence (one with a cold brew coffee base!), two more flavors of Non-Dairy deliciousness, and new takes on enjoying long-standing fan favorite flavors in Pint Slices.

Craig Koskiniemi, who helped create the dynamic lineup, from Pint Slice flavors to the truffle-laden lineup additions, said: "We wanted to bring the WOW factor to our fans for 2018.

"As a foodie at home AND at work, I'm inspired to come up with creative new combinations like a cold brew coffee-based Ben & Jerry's flavor. These are guaranteed to keep the love of ice cream strong.”

Pint Slices

Ben & Jerry's builds on its newest novelty innovation, Pint Slices, a portable, on-the-go ice cream bar with all the chunks and swirls of its pint lineup. The ice cream maker is unveiling more fan-favorite flavors in this fantastically fun format.

Cherry Garcia—This legend-dairy lineup leader has been one of the most-requested flavors for Pint Slices. Fans don't have to wait any longer. Cherry ice cream bars with cherries & fudge flakes, covered in a dark chocolatey coating.

Tonight Dough—Jimmy Fallon's beloved flavor was one of our most successful launches in pints. Now you can get your hands on it as a Pint Slice. Caramel ice cream bars with chocolate cookie swirls & gobs of peanut butter chocolate chip cookie dough covered in a dark chocolatey coating. If that's not euphoric enough for you, Jimmy is also donating all his proceeds to the SeriousFun Children's Network.

Coffee, Coffee BuzzBuzzBuzz—A fan favorite that packs a caffeine pick-me-up. Coffee ice cream bars with espresso bean fudge chunks covered in a dark chocolatey coating with cocoa nibs.

To celebrate the launch of the newest Pint Slice flavors, Ben & Jerry's will go west to amp up the euphoria for fans in Los Angeles with a special pop-up Pint Slice carnival and ride experience. From 11 am - 8 pm today, fans can get in on the fun at the corner of Hollywood and Vine for a special street carnival complete with Pint Slice inspired games, photo booth, and an oversized Pint Slice swing. Tunes provided by iconic record store Amoeba Music (DJ Monalisa from 4 – 8pm).

Truffle Pints

The Truffle Pint lineup includes three decadent flavors with some of the biggest chunks you'll find in a pint of Ben & Jerry's. Spooning out the soft, sweet truffles inside these new flavors will make you a certified chunk spelunker.

Chocolate Shake It—Chocolate malt milkshake ice cream with chocolate cookie-covered fudge truffles and marshmallow swirls.

Caramel Chocolate Cheesecake—Caramel chocolate ice cream with graham cracker-covered cheesecake truffles and chocolate cookie swirls.

Chillin' the Roast—Cold brew coffee ice cream with chocolate cookie-covered coffee liqueur truffles and fudge swirls.

Non-Dairy

In 2018, Ben & Jerry's is scooping out more options to fans who appreciate "everything but the cow" with two new Non-Dairy, vegan certified flavors. What started as four almond milk-based frozen dessert flavors is now a line of NINE pints. 

Peanut Butter Half Baked—Chocolate and peanut butter with fudge brownies and gobs of peanut butter cookie dough.

Cinnamon Buns—Cinnamon with cinnamon bun dough and a cinnamon streusel swirl.

Ben & Jerry's fans can find the new pints and Pint Slices in grocery stores nationwide (MSRP $4.99 for ice cream, $5.99 for Non-Dairy). Chocolate Shake It, Pint Slices, and other unique offerings will also be available in participating Scoop Shops.
