Do you love chocolate? Of course you love chocolate. It’s chocolate! The earth circles the sun, empires rise and fall, and that sweet flavor remains a fundamental building block in the Ben & Jerry’s world. It’s a good thing, too, because without it, these 8 flavors would cease to exist.
Take a spin through our list to see all the chocolate flavors you’ve tried, and all the ones you didn’t even know you were missing. These flavors have chocolate ice cream as the base only, and aren’t mixed with other flavors, such as vanilla in Half Baked.
Here are our top chocolate flavors ranked:
8. Chocolate Peanut Buttery Swirl
We don’t know who first combined these two flavors. Was it you? In case it was – thank you so much! You are an inspiration. Chocolate ice cream and creamy peanut butter swirls were simply meant for each other, but if you want a taste you’ll have to visit your local Scoop Shop.
Campfires make sense when you’re out camping, but just try starting one up in the middle of the kitchen and see how fast your roommates flip. Trust us. We learned the hard way. That’s why we took all the S’mores ingredients and put them in a pint. It’s safer this way.
6. Peanut Butter Fudge Core
Do you remember that time we thanked you for being the first person to combine chocolate and peanut butter? We’d like to thank you again, because this Core is full of both.
5. Chocolate Peppermint Crunch
We’ve got Mint Chocolate Cookie Balls and we’re not afraid to use them! The same goes for peppermint and fudge swirls. We combined these three ingredients with a chocolate base and came up with one minty masterpiece.
4. Chocolate Therapy
Chocolate on top of chocolate on top of chocolate. No, this isn’t a dream. It’s our cure for what ails you. So please, have a seat and grab a spoon. Are you comfortable? Good. Now take a bite and tell us what’s on your mind.
3. New York Super Fudge Chunk
There comes a time in every man’s life when he says, “It’s time I packed a pint with more chunks than ever before!” For Ben and Jerry, that time came when they created this mix of chocolate ice cream with white and dark fudge chunks and a mix of nuts.
2. Phish Food
Look who’s in the freezer! It’s a stash of milk chocolate ice cream with fudge fish and gooey marshmallow and caramel swirls. Take one bite and you’ll be sharing in the groove.
1. Chocolate Fudge Brownie
When we decided to pair our chocolate ice cream with the fabulously fudgy brownies from New York’s Greyston Bakery, we knew we had a winner. Some would go so far as to say we made an instant classic. Call us modest, but we agree.
Chocolate. Is there anything it can’t do? Based on this list of flavors, it looks like it could do a lot. How many of these have you tried? How many are still waiting on your list? Find us at @benandjerrys on Twitter and let us know!
