Flavor Graveyard

Even the best Ben & Jerry’s flavors eventually melt away. Here we lay our dearly de-pinted to rest so we can mourn their chunks and swirls and keep their sweet memories alive.


Rich milk chocolate cashew Brazil-nut butter ice cream with macadamia nuts covered in white & dark fudge & milk chocolatey swirl.

We won't blame the macadamia
But we were kinda in denial
The Marketplace had spoken:
Mac got aloha'ed off the aisle.

when heaven gives the word?
This flavor kicked the bucket
when angels took the herd.

So now we know:  our Dough Fro Yo
Just wasn't as greate as expected.

Love 'em separate, not interconnected.

Chocolate Truffle Low Fat Ice Cream swirled with White Chocolate Low Fat Ice Cream.

It's curtains for the
chocolate pair
I ate alone in the comfy chair,
One pint per night it might
have been
But 'twas low fat so it
weren't no sin.

Chocolate Comfort tombstone


Chocolate & Vanilla Ice Creams with Chocolatey Covered Macadamia Nuts

Nuts about chocolate
Chocolate about nuts
Swirled vanilla with chocolate
Maybe too much?



Chocolate Ice Cream with Coconut Caramel Swirls & a Chocolatey Covered Coconut Caramel Crunch

Chocolate and coconut
Fairtrade, we must add.
A taste sensation, we'd hoped
But it's gone now, so sad.



Vanilla ice cream with strawberries and fudge covered shortbread

A flavour so smashing -
& yet it fouled out:
Strawberries & shortbread -
a love match devout
But sadly it missed
all the fame it deserved,
A bit too much English
put into the serve.

Cool Britannia tombstone


Sweet Cream Ice Cream with Chocolate Cookie Pieces, Dark Chocolatey Cows & a Chocolate Fudge Swirl

Cow welfare we felt,
Deserved it's own flavour.
Just a limited batch though,
So a taste memory to savour.



Sweet Custard Ice Cream with a Caramelized Sugar Swirl

Pardon our French,
but we still swear
Our Crème Brulee is
beyond compare,
So it may not be beaucoup
too late to save
Crème Brulee from
beyond the grave.

Chocolate Ice Cream with Pecans, Almonds, Raisins, & Chocolate Chips

Here the brazen
Some say that raisin,
Caused its demise.

For all the rich indulgence.
Now watch him fan the flame,
melting puddles of 
wicked succulence.

On the sixth of November.

The pint lid on their joys.

Vanilla Ice Cream with Fresh Georgia Peaches

Fresh-picked peaches
trucked from Georgia
Tasted great but couldn't last
'Cuz Georgia's quite a-ways away
& trucks don't go that fast.

What brought its ruin no one knows,
Must have been the pistachios.

beneath the fruited plain.

With aching heart & heavy sigh

That nutty brittle from exotic places
Got sticky in between our braces.

This holiday favorite -
with love from Pete Schweddy,
vanished from store shelves
before we were ready.

The Wich that was
Was ditched…because.

The name was meant to say it all
Without the pompous prose
Was it nuts we chose to say so,
or was it the nuts we chose?
