I was wrong ....so wrong....

At first, I learned that there was just one NEW Ben & Jerry's flavor: Boston Cream Pie

And then, I was told that there are three NEW flavors: Milk & Cookies, Peanut Brittle, & BCP

Well, I was wrong, and it this case, it's ok to be wrong....

There are FIVE new flavors! Oh am I excited!!

From left to right:
  • Mud Pie: Chocolate & Coffee Liqueur Ice Creams Swirled Together with a Chocolate Cookie Swirl
  • (Fair trade vanilla --- the new Peanut Brittle** was actually on the shelf above this one)
  • Dulce Delish: Rich Caramel Ice Cream with Dark Caramel Swirls
  • Boston Cream Pie: Boston Cream Pie Ice Cream with Yellow Cake Pieces, Fudge Flakes & Swirls of Pastry Cream
  • Milk & Cookies: Vanilla Ice Cream with a Chocolate Cookie Swirl, Chocolate Chip & Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies

**Peanut Brittle is Peanut Brittle Ice Cream with Peanut Brittle Pieces & a Caramel Swirl

I was so bummed I was on my lunch break with no way to get these little buggers home, but no worries, I hope to rectify this situation this weekend... preferably at $2.99 a container and not the $4.79 you see above.



UPDATE: We have a report from Kentucky that their is actually one more new (limited batch) flavor, flourless chocolate cake!! Thanks to Hettar7!  (Walmart Only)

BIG SIDE NOTE HERE: Ben & Jerry's is going Fair Trade on ALL their flavors. Their long standing commitment to a better world will continue with this great effort which should be wrapped up by the end of 2013. You can see the entire press release here.

That Dulce Delish sounds so yummy!(despite the use of a Rachel Ray freakin made up cutesey word, don't even get me started on the EVOO acronym)

But there's a flavor you're overlooking. It appears you have the Dulce Delish and I have .....

Flourless Chocolate Cake = Chocolate Ice Cream with Flourless Chocolate Cake pieces and a Chocolate Frosting Swirl.

I wondered about the whole "Flourless" bit, I mean I've never really tasted the flour component in any other ice cream flavor that included cake pieces.

Weird, where did you find that?

Where do you all live that you can get these new flavors?!

I'm in NYC and every store has the same old flavors. NONE of the six new flavors now (w/ Flourless Chocolate Cake).

My long running assumption is that the closer you are to Vermont, the sooner you get the new stuff (so me being in Mass is good for the blog)

I found the Flourless Chocolate Cake at my local Wal-Mart in Berea, Ky.
Wish I could find the Dulce Delish as I like vanilla/other based ice creams better than chocolate based ones.
