Ben & Jerry’s, why are you so good to us?! The ice cream giant has added TWO NEW vegan flavors to their repertoire: Peanut Butter Half-Baked (peanut butter cookie dough, chocolate fudge brownie bits, and vanilla and chocolate ice cream) and Cinnamon Bun (cinnamon ice cream with cinnamon bun dough with a cinnamon streusel swirl). YEP, ALL-VEGAN!
The two new additions will join Ben & Jerry’s other non-dairy flavors that include: Caramel Almond Brittle, Cherry Garcia, Chocolate Fudge Brownie, Chunky Monkey, Coconut Seven-Layer Bar, Caramel Toffee Fudge, and PB & Cookies. That’s right, NINE dairy-free pints are now available!
With Häagen-Dazs offering four delicious vegan flavors, Breyer’s already in on the vegan ice cream game and Halo Top Creamery launching vegan ice cream flavors last year, it’s no surprise Ben and Jerry’s is adding to their non-dairy offerings.
What’s more, consumer demand for milk alternatives is on the rise. People are becoming more concerned about their own health and are also coming to realize the impact that their food choices have on the planet and animals. As a result, they are actively looking for alternatives that can not only replace the traditional animal products they grew up with – but also surpass them in taste and quality as well. With the entire market for dairy-free milk projected to reach $1.7 billion by this year, it seems like a total no-brainer that Ben & Jerry’s would continue to expand their non-dairy offerings.
Want to get your hands on Ben & Jerry’s new flavors? You can find the pints in grocery stores nationwide but if you don’t feel like leaving your house, you can have them delivered right to your door. Order both of the new flavors, we won’t judge!
