An Analysis Of 10 Ben & Jerry’s Pints

All about that late night noshing? In the words of Craig David, ‘What’s your flava? Tell me what’s your flava?”

1. Americone Dream

Well, Stephen Colbert once said that this is the world’s best flavor, and if you don’t agree, then you’re a terrorist. So if you love this pint, then good for you! You’re off the no-fly list!

What’s inside?
Vanilla Ice Cream with Caramel Swirl & Fudge Covered Waffle Cone Pieces
It’s definitely delicious and has a great texture and taste. Also, Colbert donates the proceeds from the sale of this ice cream to charity, so that’s another plus for Americone Dream.

So, if you’re a fan, then basically, you’re a fan of America.

3. Phish Food

In 1997, Ben & Jerry’s launched this flavor in honor of the band “Phish” and agreed to donate some of its proceeds to environmental work to restore Lake Champlain.

What’s inside?
Chocolate Ice Cream with Gooey Marshmallow, Caramel Swirls & Fudge Fish”
Oh my. This pint is rich in flavor and if you’re a fan of devouring this whole pint, then you definitely have an appetite (a great one)! It’s not overly sweet—just the right amount.

This is an overwhelming flavor, so if you love it, then boy, do you LOVE it.

5. Cherry Garcia

This is a classic. It’s mainstream. It’s an original.
In 1987, Ben & Jerry’s came out with Cherry Garcia, which honors Jerry Garcia, a member of “The Grateful Dead”

What’s inside?
Cherry Ice Cream, Cherries, & Fudge Flakes
This is a pleasant flavor with nothing too shocking, but if you’re a fan of the subtle cherry, then you’ll probably be a devout fan of this pint.

7. Chocolate Therapy

Everything you ever wanted wrapped in chocolate serve on a chocolate plate. If you don’t like chocolate, you won’t like this.

What’s inside?
Chocolate Ice Cream, Chocolate Cookies & Swirls of Chocolate Pudding Ice Cream
nom. nom. nom.
There is complexity to this flavor, but it takes a little while to dig deep enough to get it. There’s intertwining of flavors, which is exciting, but sometimes distracting. The pint may leave you with a dry after-taste, as it isn’t as creamy or rich as other flavors. It’s really like a multi-layered cake of chocolate goodness.

9. Chocolate Fudge Brownie

How is this different than Chocolate Therapy? Well, it’s a simple classic. It’s rich and chocolate and delicious.

What’s inside?
Chocolate Ice Cream, Fudge Brownies
These brownies are huge and chunky. While they are the only topping swirled in the ice cream, they’re enough to make you a happy eater. This is a hard pint to stop eating in one sitting.

11. Half Baked

The ultimate combination. A best seller, for sure. For the lover of all things.

What’s inside?
Chocolate AND Vanilla Ice Cream, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Fudge Brownies
Eating cookie dough is great. So is eating brownies. But put them together and the outcome is pure bliss, especially when you get a combination of both vanilla and chocolate. This is a great flavor for the indecisive and also for those who want it all. Each bite has a lot of substance, so if you’re a fan of lighter flavors, this may not be for you.

In 2011, this pint hit stores in honor of the one and only late night star Jimmy Fallon. It’s definitely a unique taste, but one many are head over heels about.

What’s inside?
Vanilla Bean Ice Cream, Salty Caramel Swirl & Fudge Covered Potato Chip Clusters”
When this flavor first arrived, some found the addition of potato chips to be bizarre and unexpected. However, for those who crave both salty and sweet will love this flavor. It’s definitely a taste that’s never been seen before, but one that can be polarizing in crowds. If you’re looking for an ultimate crowd pleaser, this may not be the pint.

15. Chunky Monkey

It’s banana and it’s nutty. Not for everyone, but certainly popular with a certain crowd of consumers.

What’s inside?
Banana Ice Cream, Chocolate covered Bananas & Walnuts
So, anyone allergic to walnuts, goodbye. And anyone who doesn’t enjoy Banana flavored desserts, see ya later. But for the fans, welcome to savory heaven. This pint is full of mix-ins, full of fudge chunks and chewy walnuts. The consistency is a little strange at first (the chunks can be hard to bite through). It’s something to try if you like Banana Pudding or Banana Ice Cream in general.

17. Chubby Hubby

Again, another polarizing pint, as it contains lots of Peanuts and that’s not always a crowd pleaser.

What’s inside?
Vanilla Malt Ice Cream, Peanutty Fudge-covered pretzels with Fudge & Peanut Buttery Swirls
So, peanuts, right? And fudgey-fudge? Okay, just checking.
Like all pints, this one is terribly unhealthy, and it’s nice and crunchy as well. For some this flavor is epic, and for others, it’s revolting.

19. Scotchy Scotch Scotch

So, the big question—-does it contain actual Scotch, because if so, we’re all down for some!

What’s inside?
Butterscotch Ice Cream with Butterscotch Swirls
Well, if you don’t like butterscotch..this isn’t for you. There aren’t many add-ins, just some swirl, which makes it a simple yet tasty flavor. And if all else fails, just buy some so you can chant “I love Scotchy Scotch Scotch. Here it goes down, down into my belly…”
