Frozen Dessert Spotlight: Ben & Jerry’s Launches Chocolate Cherry Garcia
PR Newswire, South Burlington, Vt., November 15, 2016
Just when fans thought ice cream couldn’t get any more delicious and indulgent, Ben & Jerry’s shows them otherwise by taking classic fan favorite Cherry Garcia and flippin’ it! For the third installment of Ben & Jerry’s Flavor Flips, the ice cream company took iconic Cherry Garcia and added a decadent chocolate base. Chocolate Cherry Garcia features Chocolate Ice Cream with Cherries and Fudge Flakes. Consider that chocolate craving officially satisfied!
So why flip Cherry Garcia? “We know that Cherry Garcia has been a long time fan favorite but we wanted to mix things up a bit,” said Flavor Guru Eric Fredette. “This was a fun way to add a chocolate twist to create a new flavor by using the same euphoric ingredients from Cherry Garcia our fans have grown to love.”
Earlier this year, Ben & Jerry’s launched Totally Baked, a subtle twist on the #1 flavor: Half Baked, and Tubby Hubby, the peanutty twist on chunk-filled Chubby Hubby. Both flavors were available in scoop shops exclusively. Fans loved the subtle yet fun take on their classic favorites and were able to indulge in a variety of ways, whether it be a shake, sundae or just by the scoop.

But don’t worry, traditional Cherry Garcia isn’t going anywhere. Chocolate Cherry Garcia rounds out the trifecta and is available for a limited time in scoop shops nationwide. To make it a little sweeter, pints will launch in grocery stores soon and will be available for a limited time only.
