flavor graveyard

Did You Miss Us?

We’ve made a lot of euphoric flavors over the years, but, for better or worse, some of them have moved on to the great waffle cone in the sky. Tears of sadness are shed for our dearly de-pinted flavors, and we receive several thousand requests each year from our fans begging us to rein-cone-ate their favorite fallen flavor. Here are the most mourned of the bunch…and who knows? One of them may rise from the graveyard once again!

  • 1. Oatmeal Cookie Chunk


    Sweet Cream Cinnamon Ice Cream with Chunks of Oatmeal Cookies & Fudge

    Limited Batch 2003
    Full-Time Flavor 2004-2012

    From the moment that this oatmeal went
    There’s been no end to fans’ lament.
    If you’d “sowed more oats” before the reap
    We wouldn’t have buried it quite so deep.

  • 2. Dublin Mudslide™


    Irish Cream Liqueur Ice Cream with Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies & a Coffee Fudge Swirl

    Limited Batch 2004
    Full-Time Flavor 2005-2012

    How’d you get so stuck on this flavor?
    Oh, wait – you realized it just now:
    Mudsliding’s no fun
    When there’s no erin go wow.

  • 3. Crème Brûlée


    Sweet Custard Ice Cream with a Caramelized Sugar Swirl


    Pardon our French, but we still swear
    Our Crème Brûlée was beyond compare.
    We also swear we don’t know when
    The Crème de la Crème will rise again.

  • 4. Brownie Batter


    Brownie Batter Ice Cream with a Rich Brownie Batter Swirl


    Batter fans are all boo-hooing:
    What were we thinking? What’re we’re doing?
    Whatever Batter’s fate may be
    We’re gonna need a referee.

  • 5. Festivus


    Brown Sugar Cinnamon Ice Cream with Gingerbread Cookies & a Ginger-Caramel Swirl
    (the Flavor for the Rest of Us)

    Limited Batch, Holiday Seasons 2000 & 2001

    Fans of TV comedy Seinfeld found this sassy batch as fun to eat as Seinfeld's classic Festivus episode is to watch. In fact, they loved it so much we did it again the following year, just in time to coincide with the seasonal re-run of the Seinfeld episode that started the whole “Festivus, the Holiday for the Rest of Us” frenzy.

    After we put Festivus’ name to rest, we brought the flavor back twice
    (as “Gingerbread Cookie” in 2004 and as “Gingersnap” in 2009).

  • 6. Dave Matthews Band One Sweet Whirled™


    Caramel and Coffee Ice Creams with Marshmallow & Caramel Swirls
    & Coffee Flavored Fudge Chips


    Working hand in hand with the band
    Creating global warming awareness
    We kinda forgot about the flavor, in all fairness.

  • 7. Vermonty Python™


    Coffee Liqueur Ice Cream with a Chocolate Cookie Crumb Swirl & Fudge Cows


    When they’re not pining for the fjords
    or playing “wink wink, nudge nudge,”
    Vermonty Python fans most love to “fetchez la vache”
    – especially vaches made of fudge.

  • 8. Wavy Gravy™


    Caramel cashew Brazil nut ice cream with a chocolate hazelnut fudge swirl & roasted almonds

    Caramel cashew Brazil nut ice cream with a chocolate hazelnut fudge swirl & roasted almonds

    Thanks to fans who voted to “Raise a Flavor from the Graveyard,” the flavor re-appeared in scoop shops for a limited time in 2005.

    Just so there’s no confusion, we thought we oughtta warn ya:
    Wavy Gravy isn’t dead - he lives in California.
    No such luck for Wavy’s flavor, but we’ve been wrong before,
    We won’t give up the ghost if you won’t, so what’re you waiting for?

  • 9. Dave Matthews Band® Magic Brownies™ - Encore Edition


    Black Raspberry Ice Cream Swirled with Sweet Cream Ice Cream & Fudgy Brownies


    Some thought the original “too vanilla”,
    so in 2006 we deep-sixed it
    Fans then declared it raspberrily better
    after we re-mixed it.

  • 10. Coconut Almond Fudge Chip


    Coconut Ice Cream with Fudge Chips & Roasted Almonds

    Revived in special “Flavor Flashback” pints 1998-2000
    Survived as a scoop shop-only flavor 2001-2009

    This coconutty contender
    Was just too good to surrender.
    Of the Graveyard’s legendariest,
    It’s among the temporariest.

    A few parting words:

    The lawyers made us say this
    And for once we do agree:
    Graveyard flavors aren’t “D.O.A.”
    Instead, they’re “T.B.D.”*
