Every year, ice cream lovers dig into pint after pint of their favoritest, Ben & Jerrysiest flavors. And by the end of the year, it’s clear who the real superstars of the ice cream aisle are. Some flavors rise to the top as fan favorites, and some maintain small but devoted followings. This year, these 10 were the top fan favorites, the ones Ben & Jerry’s lovers dug into more than any other:
1. Half Baked
This is it: the Ben & Jerry’s heavy hitter. The king of the ice cream aisle. The boss. The big cheese. Maybe some year another flavor will overtake Half Baked as the #1 Ben & Jerry’s flavor, but 2018 is not that year.
2. Cherry Garcia
You don’t have to be a fan of Jerry and the band to love the giant cherry and fudge chunks in Cherry Garcia. This flavor comes in at #2 for the 5th year in a row. Ah, always a bridesmaid.
3. Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough
Classic vanilla ice cream, plus those indescribably delicious cookie dough pieces make this flavor a fan favorite year after year (after year after year). Ever since 1984, to be exact.
4. Chocolate Fudge Brownie
Always in the top 5 flavors of the year, Chocolate Fudge Brownie is a force to be reckoned with. Chocolate lovers, unite!
5. The Tonight Dough
Year after year, The Tonight Dough has risen through the ranks. This year, though, it slipped from the #3 spot to #5. What happened?
6. Phish Food
Up one spot from last year, Phish Food is on the rise! You don’t even need to be a fan of the band to love this pint’s fudge fish and marshmallow swirls.
7. Americone Dream
Fans can’t get enough of those fudge-covered waffle cone pieces! No cones about it, this is one beloved flavor.
8. Strawberry Cheesecake
Always a fan favorite, Strawberry Cheesecake rose this year from #8 after three years at #9. Moving on up!
9. Chunky Monkey
Fans were pretty bananas over Chunky Monkey this year. Makes sense — 2018 was a pretty bananas year.
10. Peanut Butter Cup
Our favorite peanutty flavor cracked the top 10 for the first time since 2014! Was it a particularly peanutty year? We have to assume yes.
