Ice Cream Spotlight: Ben & Jerry’s Cookie Dough Ice Cream Goes Vegan
Ice Cream Maker Unveils Its #1 Global Flavor, with Everything but the Cow
BURLINGTON, Vt., Feb. 12, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Dairy-free fans: your chip has come in. Ben & Jerry's has created a vegan version of its #1 fan favorite, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough.
For years, Non-Dairy denizens focused on what's not in dessert. Ben & Jerry's celebrates what is—rich, creamy almond milk; euphoric chunks and swirls; and incredibly indulgent flavor combinations. Today's announcement introduces two new additions to the company's collection of Non-Dairy frozen deliciousness:
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough--Vanilla with gobs of chocolate chip cookie dough & fudge flakes
Chocolate Caramel Cluster--Chocolate with peanuts, fudge chunks & salted caramel swirls
These decadent, vegan-certified flavors are boldly loaded with everything but the cow. Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough has long been a Ben & Jerry's fan-favorite—now even more people can enjoy the gobs of cookie goodness. Chocolate Caramel Cluster was created exclusively with Non-Dairy fans in mind, but everyone can appreciate its salty sweetness.
"Ever since we introduced Non-Dairy in 2016, our fans have been clamoring for more," said Flavor Guru Sarah Fidler. "The biggest challenge this time was creating a chocolate chip cookie dough flavor that stood up to the original. I think we nailed it." The two new flavors bring Ben & Jerry's total line-up to 11 Non-Dairy offerings, representing nearly 25% of the company's full-time flavors. Rumors have been swirling that the company will introduce another Non-Dairy innovation in early spring.
The new Non-Dairy flavors are available nationwide in pints (MSRP: $4.48 - $5.99). Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough will also be available at participating Scoop Shops. To learn more about Ben & Jerry's Non-Dairy flavors or to find a store nearby, visit www.benjerry.com.
