Ben & Jerry’s releases four new ‘core’ flavors for an all-in-one sundae
Ben & Jerry’s is known for its unconventional ice cream flavors, but now it’s attempting to reshape the way we eat the frozen treat. The Vermont-based brand has introduced four new flavors, and each one has all the elements of an ice cream sundae.
Borrowing from its Karamel Sutra flavor, which features a core of soft caramel, all four of the new flavors, dubbed the “core” line, include two ice creams, separated by a sweet and gooey streak down the middle.
The four new flavors include Hazed & Confused, with chocolate and hazelnut ice creams with fudge chips and a hazelnut fudge core; That’s My Jam, with raspberry and chocolate ice creams with fudge chips and a raspberry core; Peanut Butter Fudge, with chocolate and peanut butter ice creams with miniature peanut butter cups and a peanut butter fudge core; and Salted Caramel with sweet cream ice cream, blonde brownies and a salty caramel core.
Anyone else thinking about taking a spoon and scooping out the entire core of caramel?
The pints are also the brand’s first line of ice creams to be 100% fair-trade certified and made with non-GMO sourced ingredients.
Priced at $4.39, all four flavors are available at stores nationwide. The brand also plans on adding handmade core sundaes with a core of hot fudge or caramel between two ice cream flavors to its Ben & Jerry’s Scoop Shops in the spring.
