The Definitive Ranking Of Ben & Jerry's Flavors

Excluding vanilla and those Greek yogurt spin-offs because this isn't a f***ing joke.

The contenders: only flavors currently in circulation in the U.S. So if you're looking for Schweddy Balls, Oatmeal Cookie, Late Night Snack, or other beloved retirees, you'll have to head over to the the flavor graveyard.

42. Pumpkin Cheesecake

Ben & Jerry's / Via benjerry.com

This is ice cream, not Thanksgiving. Back off, squash-kin.

41. That's My Jam Core

Ben & Jerry's / Via benjerry.com

Nobody came here for seeds in their goddamn teeth. Go home, jam, you're drunk.

40. Banana Split

Ben & Jerry's / Via benjerry.com

Banana splits are better IRL.

39. Chunky Monkey

Ben & Jerry's / Via benjerry.com

Unpopular opinion: This shit is bananas. B-A-N-A-Not good.

38. Strawberry Cheesecake

Ben & Jerry's / Via benjerry.com

Again, as with most things involving fruit, you're better off fresh.

37. Pistachio Pistachio

Ben & Jerry's / Via benjerry.com

Don’t get me wrong, pistachio is without a doubt the sexiest nut. But ice cream just isn’t her scene.

36. Red Velvet Cake

Ben & Jerry's / Via benjerry.com

RED VELVET IS A SCAM, PEOPLE. IT'S JUST FOOD COLORING OPEN YOUR EYES.

35. What a Cluster

Ben & Jerry's / Via benjerry.com

So much potential, but what are these caramel clusters even? Chewy and mysterious — and not in a good way.

34. Vanilla Caramel Fudge

Ben & Jerry's / Via benjerry.com

So vanilla. I take my fudge hot and drizzled across my chest or not at all.

33. Triple Caramel Chunk

Ben & Jerry's / Via benjerry.com

Boring. Knockoff Rolos. No.

32. Everything but the…

Ben & Jerry's / Via benjerry.com

Everything but the WHAT?? *dumps down drain*

31. Mint Chocolate Cookie

Ben & Jerry's / Via benjerry.com

More like Meh Chocolate.

30. Phish Food

Ben & Jerry's / Via benjerry.com

Who still listens to Phish?

29. New York Super Fudge Chunk

Ben & Jerry's / Via benjerry.com

So many chunks, so little time. This one's not worth the effort, especially for folks on that #NewYorkMinute grind.

28. Peanut Butter Fudge Core

Ben & Jerry's / Via benjerry.com

I get it — chocolate and peanut butter were made for each other. Tell me something I don't know.

27. Coffee, Coffee BuzzBuzzBuzz!

Ben & Jerry's / Via benjerry.com

Calm down, Coffee, Coffee. You're trying too hard.

26. Peanut Butter Cup

Ben & Jerry's / Via benjerry.com

I'm pretty sure Reese's already has rights to this.

25. Chocolate Peppermint Crunch

Ben & Jerry's / Via benjerry.com

Ditto the Girl Scouts. But this'll do in a pinch.

24. Vanilla Toffee Bar Crunch

Ben & Jerry's / Via benjerry.com

RIP Heath Bars* :(

*Discontinued when B&J went GMO-free. This off-brand toffee is fine for now.

23. Coffee Toffee Bar Crunch

Ben & Jerry's / Via benjerry.com

(See above. Weep. Eat.)

22. Chubby Hubby

Ben & Jerry's / Via benjerry.com

At 340 calories per serving, this is far and above the fattiest of all flavors and potentially offensive to actual chubby hubbies. *shamefully spoons*

21. Candy Bar Pie

Ben and Jerry's / Via benjerry.com

The love child of ice cream and this actual candy bar pie? Sure.

20. Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

Ben & Jerry's / Via benjerry.com

This is the ex you keep coming back to — he'll always taste great, but you can do better.

19. Coffee Caramel Buzz

Ben and Jerry's / Via benjerry.com

Booze automatically cracks the top 20.

(For those in search of Scotchy Scotchy Scotch, sorry, but it never contained any actual Scotch...)

18. Karamel Sutra Core

Ben & Jerry's / Via benjerry.com

Maybe just an excuse for an ingenious innuendo, but I'd still like to throw that river of caramel on its back and **** it till I ****ing ****.

17. Spectacular Speculoos Cookie Core

Ben and Jerry's / Via benjerry.com

Speculoos/cookie butter is super trendy right now, so kudos to B&J for jumping on the bandwagon. But the cookie chunks are distractingly crunchy, making this one good but not quite spectacular.

16. Chocolate Therapy

Ben & Jerry's / Via benjerry.com

Cheaper than real therapy and run through with pudding? Don't mind if I [insert Freudian slip].

15. Hazed & Confused Core

benjerry.com / Via theicecreaminformant.com

B&J's answer to another trendy spread — Nutella, one smooth-ass motherfucker.

14. Peanut Buttah Cookie Core

Ben and Jerry's / Via benjerry.com

You had me at "crunchy peanut butter sugar bits." *grabs EpiPen*

13. Cheesecake Brownie

Ben & Jerry's / Via benjerry.com

What's better than gobs of chewy cheesecake brownie chunks? Gobs of chewy cheesecake brownie chunks swimming in cheesecake slop. Yes please.

12. Chocolate Fudge Brownie

Ben & Jerry's / Via benjerry.com

Pro tip: Let this one sit out for, like, an hour before consuming. Then work into a lather and rub over entire body.

11. S'mores

Ben & Jerry's / Via benjerry.com

Oh hell yes. Look at that chocolaty, marshmallowy sheen. Take me to a fire, strip me down, and feed this to me on a stick.

10. Boston Cream Pie

Ben & Jerry's / Via benjerry.com

Having never been to Boston, I can only assume this is what it's like: soft, pleasant, and surprisingly well-spoken. A wicked pissah 'cream if I ever saw one.

9. Milk & Cookies

Ben & Jerry's / Via benjerry.com

Forget calcium chews, ladies. Knock back a pint of this daily and kiss your brittle bones good-bye!

8. Cake Batter

Ben & Jerry's / Via benjerry.com

All the joy of spooning uncooked cake batter with none of the salmonella — a true victory for the raw food movement.

7. Americone Dream

Ben & Jerry's / Via benjerry.com

As always, Colbert thinks outside the cone. And then he puts that cone inside his ice cream. Because America.

6. Peanut Butter Half Baked

Ben & Jerry's / Via benjerry.com

Half Baked's nutty cousin is great, but will never really live up to her predecessor. We're still happy to have her, though.

5. Half Baked

Ben & Jerry's / Via benjerry.com

The veritable king of all things gooey and/or stoned. Ben and Jerry know their audience and we know that this shit is, like, sooooo good, man.

4. Boom Chocolatta Cookie Core

Ben & Jerry's / Via benjerry.com

A newcomer, but holy hell just look at that thing. The cookie core is like Nutella on crack, thick and grainy in all the right places, and swaddled in a caramel cream that will make all your dreams come true.

3. Salted Caramel Core

Ben & Jerry's / Via benjerry.com

Yes, that wad of salted caramel is a lot to handle. But take a deep breath, let it soften up, then swirl it all together with the sweet cream. You won't regret it.

2. Cherry Garcia

Ben & Jerry's / Via benjerry.com

Somehow this one just works. A perfect balance of fruity, chewy, chunky, and chill, Cherry Garcia knows what she's doing and she does it well — just like her truly badass namesake. Deadheads, rejoice.

1. Cinnamon Buns

Ben & Jerry's / Via benjerry.com

If you've not yet spooned these buns, kindly shut up, get up, go buy a pint, and then thank me. Because this flavor is heaven-sent — the queen of gooey, godly, sugary excess. You like cookie dough? You'll love cinnamon bun dough, especially when it's smothered in not-too-sweet caramel ice cream and cut through with veins of straight-up cinnamon sugar smack. Seriously, if I could mainline this shit, I would. But let's start with a spoon and work from there.
