Forgotten Flavors We Still Love

August 14, 2014

We read the comments. We see what happens in Scoop Shops. We know you all favor certain Ben & Jerry’s ice cream flavors over others, and, quite frankly, we don’t blame you. We have our favorites, too. But we also know a thing or two about being the underdog. There’s something special about having to fight for your place at the table.

That’s why we put together this list of our favorite not-favorite flavors. They’re not the first things you think of when you hear Ben & Jerry’s, but definitely worth digging a spoon into. Who knows, you might just find your new go-to flavor.

  • A pint of Chocolate Peppermint Crunch Ben & Jerry's and mint chocolate cookies

    Chocolate Peppermint Crunch

    We call it Crunch because the Mint Chocolate Cookie Balls crunch. In your mouth. In delicious bite after bite with chocolate ice cream and peppermint and fudge swirls.

  • A pint of S'mores Ben & Jerry's ice cream with smores sandwiches


    Remember that time you went to that place and that guy lit a fire and everyone ate S’mores? This flavor is just like that. Except it’s in ice cream form and it won’t make your hoodie smell like smoke.

  • A pint of Cinnamon Buns Ben & Jerry's ice cream with cinnamon buns

    Cinnamon Buns

    There used to be a time when a person went through life admitting they never had cinnamon bun dough and a cinnamon streusel swirl. We put an end to that. 

  • A pint of Coffee, Coffee BuzzBuzzBuzz Ben & Jerry's ice cream with cups of iced coffee

    Coffee, Coffee BuzzBuzzBuzz

    Did you know that coffee is more popular than tea among coffee drinkers who prefer coffee? It’s true! We used that insight to combine coffee ice cream with espresso bean fudge chunks. The results spoon themselves. 

  • A pint of Red Velvet Cake Ben & Jerry's ice cream with a piece of red velvet cake

    Red Velvet Cake

    Truth time: Nothing beats turning delicious desserts into even more delicious ice cream flavors. Who says you can't have your cake and eat it as ice cream, too?

  • A pint of Triple Caramel Chunk Ben & Jerry's ice cream with chunks of camel pieces

    Triple Caramel Chunk

    Caramel is cool. Double caramel is double delicious. But Triple Caramel Chunk? That’s the stuff ice cream dreams are made of. 

  • A pint of Banana Split Ben & Jerry's ice cream cut in half and a banana between them

    Banana Split

    We could have stopped at banana ice cream. But we didn’t. We added strawberry to the mix. Why? We’re Ben & Jerry’s, that’s why!

  • A pint of Milk & Cookies Ben & Jerry's ice cream with a plate of cookies

    Milk & Cookies

    There’s something comforting about eating one of our favorite after-school snacks in pint form. Take a bite of the chocolate cookie swirl and see if you don’t agree.

  • A pint of Vanilla Caramel Fudge Ben & Jerry's ice cream

    Vanilla Caramel Fudge

    If we told you this flavor had three main components, would you guess they were vanilla, caramel, and fudge? If so, we owe you a high five!

  • A pint of Vanilla Ben & Jerry's ice cream with a plate of vanilla beans


    There’s nothing vanilla about our vanilla that won an internet taste test for being the best tasting vanilla ice cream. That’s got to be worth something, right?
