Ben & Jerry's adds Cookie Core Lineup!

[New for 2015] Now I don't usually post news in the main feed here, but this is too good not to share. Nick and I were pretty sure there was a peanut butter cookie core coming, and we were pretty sure there was some kind of speculoos flavor coming, but never did I dream that it would be as cool looking as this photo sent to me this morning. (note: first photo updated with a collage of my own pictures)

The New Ben & Jerry's Cookie Core Line up

Boom Chocolatta! Cookie Core : Mocha & Caramel Ice Creams with Chocolate Cookies, Fudge Flakes & a Chocolate Cookie Core.  (Update: my review here)

Peanut Buttah Cookie Core : Peanut Butter Ice Cream with Crunchny Peanut Butter Sugar Bits, Peanut Butter Cookies & a Peanut Butter Cookie Core  (Update: my review here)

Spectacular Speculoos Cookie Core : Dark Caramel & Vanilla Ice Cream with Speculoos Cookies & Speculoos Cookie Butter Core  (Update: my review here)

Update: It's 1/13/2015 and the Cookie Cores have been officially announced

first found by Charles at a Super Walmart in Fort Meyers Florida

Now you might remember that Nick and I weren't exactly impressed with last year's lineup of Core flavors (despite what all the click-bait websites might have told you), but this, this is how Ben & Jerry's should be. I've been talking up cookie butter for years now and it's awesome to see them here. Plus: Dark Caramel? Peanut Butter sugar bits? Speculoos? These can't get to my local stores quick enough.

In the comments, let us know which one you want to try first.
Big thanks to Charles for the heads up!

ooooh, they all sound great. But I'm going to be most excited to try the peanut butter. Thanks for sharing this info!

PB and Speculoos, especially the latter bc I can't get Speculoos in my area and I'm always dying to know what it tastes like when Dubba talks about it!

Now these CORES look good!! Last years flavors were not that exciting to me because they were mostly a mashup of existing flavors. Can't wait to try them all!!

What flavors will disappear to make room fir these?

They all sound awesome, but B&J has a great coffee flavor so the first one with mocha sounds particularly good. The biggest problem for me is finding the cores in my area! Wal-mart runs out sooo fast.

I will look forward to the non core new flavors. Hope they're good ones!

The core pints just have too much going on for me.

I really wish they would bring back the Oatmeal Chunk cookie flavor.

What "are crunchy, sugar peanut butter bits"?! I hope it's the type of peanut butter crunch found in a Fifth Avenue candy bar!
