4 Surprisingly Good Ben and Jerry’s Flavors Worth Checking Out

Some of Ben and Jerry’s flavors are timeless and always bring joy to people. However, like all major companies in the world, the Vermont-based ice cream maker is always looking for new recipes and mash-ups. Here are four bizarre but surprisingly good combinations to try with family and friends.

1. Peanuts and Popcorn – Perfect For Movie Night

Peanuts! Popcorn! was a unique mixture by Ben and Jerry’s, which was perfect for a family movie night. The odd flavor featured caramel ice cream with toffee-coated peanuts, white fudge-covered caramel popcorn, and a caramel swirl. It was a limited edition, which was produced for only one year. While it’s been in the flavor graveyard since 2000, people can still use it as the base for their own peanut and popcorn ice cream.

2. Boston Cream Pie – Ben and Jerry’s Tribute for a History-Rich City

Boston Cream Pie is an ice cream with the persona of a dessert. It’s made up of yellow cake batter ice cream with cake pieces, pastry cream filling, and chocolate frosting. It’s one of the brand’s oddest flavors but it’s also quite successful as who doesn’t want to eat quality ice cream that tastes like world-class cake.

3. Schweddy Balls – Inspired by Pete Schweddy

Released in 2011 and produced for only one year, Schweddy Balls is one of Ben and Jerry’s most iconic flavors. Inspired by Alec Baldwin’s SNL character Pete Schweddy this vanilla ice cream is mixed with fudge-covered rum and malt balls. Many consider it to be the company’s weirdest product but it’s also a fan-favorite flavor, which is why many were unhappy when its production was discontinued. And even though it can’t be found in stores, people can still make it on their own.

4. Chubby Hubby – The Ice Cream Created Because of a Prank

Chubby Hubby was introduced in 1994 after Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield learned the story of two office pranksters who had managed to convince their co-worker that the flavor existed. They decided to make the joke a delicious reality by combining vanilla malt ice cream with peanutty fudge-covered pretzels with peanut buttery and fudge swirls. The mash-up was so good that the flavor immediately became one of the company’s most sought-after products.

As of date, Ben and Jerry’s has over 50 different types of flavors. While some are classic combinations, others feature unique mixtures, which can seem bizarre to most people. But one thing is certain, all of them are truly tasty and worth checking out.
