Staff Picks: Design Your Dream Ben & Jerry's Flavor

Sweets The Serious Eats Team 56 comments

We have to hand it to them; when it comes to ice cream with mix-ins, Ben & Jerry's is hard to beat. And because we like to dream big at SE* we asked ourselves, if you could have B&J's create any flavor you wanted, what would it be? And no, the realities of science need not apply. More

We Try Ron Burgundy's Scotchy Scotch Scotch from Ben & Jerry's

Sweets Todd Brock 12 comments

Some people don't like butterscotch. Those people are flawed to their core and should not be trusted. And they certainly have no business coming anywhere near this ice cream. It is butterscotch overload, and I mean that in the very best way possible. More

Sweets Brad Thomas Parsons 18 comments

Ben & Jerry's kicks off summer with two new flavors: Berry Voluntary and Brownie Chew Gooder, which you'll only find at another big-box retailer, Target. And if the names didn't give it away, this partnership helps foster volunteerism. You can visit Scoop It Forward to identify volunteering opportunities in your local community. We got our hands on a couple pints, and gave them a try. More

Sweets Brad Thomas Parsons 45 comments

Like the first appearance of ramps at the farmers' markets, there's no surer sign of spring than the arrival of new Ben & Jerry's flavors. Will these new flavors—Boston Cream Pie, Dulce Delish, Maple Blondie, Milk & Cookies, Mud Pie, Peanut Brittle—become fan favorites or end up entombed in the Flavor Graveyard? More

Irish Ice Cream Soda

Inspired by the knock-it-back-fast classic, the Irish Car Bomb, I came up with this beer float, using Guinness stout and Ben & Jerry's Dublin Mudslide. A marriage of alcohol and ice cream—what could be more delicious for St. Patrick's Day? More

Cherries for Change

Erin Zimmer 2 comments

As if the Democratic race couldn’t get any feistier, our favorite tie dye-sportin’, cow-milkin’ Ben & Jerry just got involved. They want Obama, and they've even created a “Cherries for Change” flavor in his honor. We ask—is it just Cherry Garcia with a label slapped over it? And how will lactose-intolerant voters react?...

Häagen-Dazs vs. Ben & Jerry's: Which Are You Down With?

Ed Levine 42 comments

Häagen-Dazs vs. Ben & Jerry's—it's the ice cream battle of our time. It's like the Yankees vs. the Red Sox, Ali vs. Liston, or the Knicks vs. the Heat in the old days. There's plenty of bad blood—or should I say curdled cream?—between them. Older ice cream eaters might remember that in 1984 Häagen-Dazs tried to limit distribution of Ben & Jerry’s in Boston, prompting Ben & Jerry’s to file suit against Häagen-Dazs's parent company, Pillsbury, in its now famous “What’s the Doughboy Afraid Of?” campaign. Every ice cream lover I know chooses sides in this war, and make no mistake about it, this is a battle royale. Who you pick says a lot about who you are and... More

New from Ben & Jerry's: Willie Nelson's Country Peach Cobbler

Lia Bulaong 3 comments

You'd think Stephen Colbert would be a happy man in 2007 because Ben & Jerry's gave him his own ice cream flavor, Stephen Colbert's Americone Dream, but instead he's hopping mad—accusing country music legend Willie Nelson of stealing his time in the spotlight by launching his own Ben & Jerry's flavor. Called "Willie Nelson's Country Peach Cobbler," it's peach ice cream with cinnamon-sugar shortbread pieces. Rolling Stone's Irina Ageyeva talked to a Ben & Jerry's spokesman about Willie's new ice cream and asked how the company chooses whom to bestow custom flavors on. Apparently "artists are deemed flavor-worthy on the basis of their humanitarian efforts. The more do-good, environment-friendly, help-the-kids-in-Africa stuff you have on your resume, the better the... More

"The Sweet Taste of Liberty In Your Mouth"

Lia Bulaong 1 comment

Ben & Jerry's newest flavor: Stephen Colbert’s Americone Dream, vanilla ice cream with fudge-covered waffle cone pieces and caramel. "I’m not afraid to say it. Dessert has a well-known liberal agenda," Colbert said in a statement. "What I hope to do with this ice cream is bring some balance back to the freezer case."... More
