Ben & Jerry’s has unveiled four new ice cream flavors, but it’s what in the middle of the pint that is getting all the attention.
The Vermont-based company, known for limited-batch flavors with off-beat names, has come up with a new ice cream concept which they are calling “Cores.” The ice cream features a column of gooey goodness running down the center.
The new "Core" flavors include “Hazed & Confused,” “Peanut Butter Fudge,” “Salted Caramel” and “That's My Jam.”
“Hazed and Confused” is chocolate and hazelnut ice cream with fudge chips and a hazelnut fudge core.
“Peanut Butter Fudge” has chocolate and peanut butter ice cream with mini peanut butter cups and a peanut butter fudge.
“Salted Caramel” is sweet cream ice cream with blonde brownies and a salted caramel core.
“That's My Jam” is chocolate and raspberry ice cream on either side of a raspberry core.
The flavors were inspired by the ice-cream maker's popular Karamel Sutra flavor, which is chocolate and caramel ice cream with fudge chips and a caramel core, the company said in a press release Monday.
“We wanted to blow out the concept of fun flavors, chunks and swirls and take it over the top,” said Ben & Jerry's lead flavor developer Eric Fredette.
The pints cost $4.39 each and will be available in U.S. stores in February.
Ice cream lovers everywhere rejoiced at Ben & Jerry's announcment, taking to social media to share their execitment about the new treats:
