What Flavor Is Your Relationship?

February 10, 2017

Ah, love. Whether it's between you and a towering bowl of Chocolate Fudge Brownie or you and that special person who makes your heart go pitter-pat, it's something to celebrate.

We know a thing or two about match-making around here – after all, we pair euphoric ice creams with funky chunks and smooth swirls every day, with mouth-watering results. Think your relationship is like a Ben & Jerry’s flavor? We’re pretty sure you’re right.

  1. The Opposites

    It’s a cliché, but sometimes it’s true: opposites attract. You like to cuddle up with a good book, they’ll wait for the movie. You like to let your Ben & Jerry’s soften to creamy perfection, they prefer to spoon out freezer-hard bites. Your relationship is The Tonight Dough, with two different ice creams and two different cookie doughs – opposites for sure, but a match made in heaven, still.

  2. The Frenetics

    If you and your partner are the go-go-go types, always trying to cram more activities into each and every day, you’re probably Coffee, Coffee BuzzBuzzBuzz. Meeting up for a romantic dinner? You want to do drinks beforehand and dancing afterwards. Seeing a show? You want to meet the cast and talk plot twists. You’ll need a jolt of coffee and espresso for a night like that, and Coffee, Coffee BuzzBuzzBuzz is just the ticket.

  3. The Lovebirds

    Just like the famed songbird, you and your beloved are cozy, settled and in it for the long haul. You finish each other’s sentences and always know when the other needs a good hug. As a flavor, you are Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough. Once thought of a revolutionary pairing, these days it’s a staple for any ice cream freezer. Ice cream and cookie dough is a match for the ages, just like you and yours.

  4. The Quirks

    You like your life a little weird, a little bit different from all the average Joes and Janes out there. Your other half is no different, and your quirks complement each other for love euphoria. You two can be found wandering the road less traveled, or blazing your own trail. Your flavor is Phish Food, a quirky confection that came from Vermont’s quirkiest band, Phish.

  5. The Power Couple

    When you’re not talking about everything you’ve done with your day over a pint of Ben & Jerry’s, you two go-getters are out making a difference in the world. From dawn until dusk, your calendars are booked. You are Half Baked, a flavor that is made up of two powerfully tasty flavors: Chocolate Fudge Brownie and Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough swirled together.

  6. The Friends First

    You are the set of friends that eventually made the jump to romance. Whether it was a daring proclamation of love or a subtle touch of the hands, somehow all those friendly encounters turned into something more. Your flavor is Cinnamon Buns, a childhood favorite that became a grown-up treat. It’s always been there for you, and now it has an especially special relevance.

  7. The Young Lovers

    Ah, young love – when every glance and every touch of the hands is a puzzle to be solved. Do they like me? Do they really like me? Your young hearts blossom like spring flowers to the possibilities that await. As a flavor, you are Strawberry Cheesecake, a bright and cheery flavor that screams wholesome romance. It’s perfect for picnicking in the park or cuddling up on the couch for a movie.

  8. The Test Drive

    You’re not sure if it’s forever, but it sure is fun for now. You’re taking each other for a test drive, seeing how it goes, hoping for the best, and enjoying not knowing what the future will hold. You two are any of the Ben & Jerry’s Cores flavors, delightful ice cream concoctions with a hearty core of chocolate fudge or gooey caramel. They’re new and exciting, just like your wildfire romance.

  9. The Do-Gooders

    Whether you’re volunteering in your free time, helping a friend move, or babysitting for your neighbor, you and your love are the helpful heroes of your community. You’re so grateful for the love in your life that you like to spread it around, giving back to those who need a hand. Chocolate Fudge Brownie is your flavor, for sure. This flavor is more than just a chocolate rush – its brownies are made by Greyston Bakery, a social enterprise employing people who have struggled to find employment and need a second chance.

  10. The Soul Mates

    Whether its karma or fate or anything else you want to call it, you are with the person that the universe knew was right for you. No mountain is too tall for you to climb together, no problem too complex, and no puzzle too puzzling. Their presence makes you feel whole, and every joy is greater when they are by your side. Your flavor is Peanut Butter Cup, a simple but revered flavor made of two innately complimentary tastes: chocolate and peanut butter. And a couple that goes together like chocolate and peanut butter is one that is made to last.
