Get In My Mouth: Ben & Jerry’s New Core Ice Cream Flavors

One of the unexpected side effects of taking my booze intake down by, like, 75 percent is that I suddenly crave sugar like I never have before. I’ve never had a sweet tooth, but once I stopped putting away nearly a bottle of wine a night, my body began to crave a nightly sweet treat. Usually this comes in the form of some sort of ice cream. Talenti’s salted caramel ice cream bars are a fave, and Ben & Jerry’s never disappoints with their creative flavor offerings. Speaking of those two Vermont stoners — they have really outdone themselves now. Ben & Jerry’s just announced that they are releasing four new “Core” flavors later this month, which feature a column of deliciousness in the center, surrounded by ice cream. WHUT. Keep reading »

After months of amassing NYC residents’ flavor preferences on a special website, Ben & Jerry’s has launched its new ice cream flavor, Borough Brew. And the flavor of New York City is (drumroll please): Six Point Brewery beer, 3BEANS vanilla ice cream, butterscotch from Spoonable Caramels, brownies from Greyston Bakery and caramel corn from Liddabit Sweets. Should they have waited just a couple more weeks to start getting our input on our favorite tastes, there’s no doubt there would have been some Cronuts mixed in there, even though most New Yorkers haven’t had the good fortune to taste one yet. Borough Brew, while delicious sounding, missed out on so many native New York flavor profiles. In my estimation, these other flavors would have been just as accurate a representation… Keep reading »

No More “Hairy Garcia” For You: Ben & Jerry’s Sues Porn Company

Let this be a lesson to the porn industry: make hardcore films that spoof Ben & Jerry’s ice cream flavors, and the outcome won’t be so sweet.

I got a good chuckle out of Caballero Video’s Ben & Jerry’s-inspired titles like “Hairy Garcia” “Boston Cream Thigh,” and “Peanut Butter D-Cup,” but the ice cream makers didn’t find them quite so amusing. Nor did they like the twisting of their “famous and distinctive” logo from “Vermont’s Finest” to “Porno’s Finest” or the the compromising positions those innocent, grazing cows were put in.

Ben & Jerry’s slapped Caballero Video with a big, old law suit  yesterday, requesting profits from the films and unspecified damages for exploiting their wholesome brand and ripping off their logo. [NY Post]

Evening Quickies: Parents Protesting Ben & Jerrry’s Schweddy Balls Ice Cream

  • A handwringing parents’ group called One Million Moms is protesting Ben & Jerry’s new flavor Schweddy Balls, which is named after a classic “Saturday Night Live” skit starring Alec Baldwin, Molly Shannon, and Ana Gasteyer. One Million Moms, which is affiliated with the Christan group American Family Association, huffily said of Schweddy Balls: “The vulgar new flavor has turned something as innocent as ice cream into something repulsive.” Repulsive! Now, now. I know fudge-covered rum balls aren’t for everyone, but let’s not get hysterical here. [Flavorwire]
