At Ben & Jerry’s, we love chunks—the bigger the better. Way, way back, it was Ben who suggested packing our pints with chunks. Because of his anosmia, he couldn’t smell or taste the flavors very well, but he loved texture, and chunks make for some excellent texture.
But what if chunky is not what you’re looking for? Well, remember, it’s a big, beautiful world full of untold delights. And that’s why, today, we’re celebrating the smooth. Ah, sweet chunkless love: there’s beauty in the purely creamy too.
Get ready, because here’s the definitive ranking of the best smooth flavors we have to offer:
Item number 1
Strawberry Cheesecake regularly ranks among our top-10 most popular flavors, and it’s easy to taste why. All those strawberries, all that creamy cheesecake ice cream, and that irresistible graham-cracker swirl! A dessert dream that also happens to be delectably real.
Item number 2
Vanilla Caramel Fudge
For a chunk-free delight that still packs all the fudgy, caramelicious flavor you’re wanting, needing, praying for, and fantasizing about, try Vanilla Caramel Fudge. A word of caution, however: there are SO MANY SWIRLS, so give yourself time to enjoy them all.
Item number 3
A Swirled of Difference
Euphoria arrives in a multitude of flavor combinations, but something about A Swirled of Difference just feels more perfect every time we dig into it. Peanut butter ice cream, a peanut butter swirl, AND a raspberry swirl? It’s hard to say exactly what’s happening here, but we never want it to stop—and neither will you.
