Vermont Business Magazine Ben & Jerry's recognizes the next generation in its 2020 lineup, offering even more non-dairy flavors and a new base mix with a sunny disposition: sunflower butter! Ben & Jerry's new sunflower butter based Non-Dairy Frozen Desserts use flower power to deliver on the full Ben & Jerry's experience with loads of chunks and swirls, while providing a delicious alternative to the existing almond based lineup.

As the first national brand to offer sunflower butter pints to the public and at its Scoop Shops, Ben & Jerry's hopes to continue to spread the non-dairy love. The company, which has made no secret of its desire to be the biggest and best purveyor of super-premium, non-dairy frozen desserts, promotes the new flavors with a bright yellow lid and packaging adorned with the bold summer flowers.

The three new non-dairy flavors offer seed-based goodness with flavors that will tantalize taste buds, including:

  • "Milk" & Cookies - Vanilla non-dairy frozen dessert with chocolate chip cookies, chocolate sandwich cookies and chocolate cookie swirls
  • Crème Brûlée Cookie - Burnt caramel non-dairy frozen dessert with brown sugar cookies and salted caramel swirls
  • Mint Chocolate Cookie - Mint non-dairy frozen dessert with chocolate sandwich cookies

As a bonus, Ben & Jerry's fans will have access to an exclusive flavor at their local Scoop Shop: Cold Brew Coffee Fudge Chip, a cold brew non-dairy frozen dessert with fudge flakes and a fudge swirl.

"Plant-based eating is one of the biggest trends in the world and ice cream lovers everywhere have shouted for non-dairy/vegan options that rise to the levels of Ben & Jerry's euphoric awesomeness," said CEO Matthew McCarthy. "I am over-the-moon excited that our Flavor Gurus have churned out something funky and chunky that is nothing short of spectacular."

For fans on the go, Ben & Jerry's is also launching two new almond based Non-Dairy Mini Cups! The popular format features one scoop in a convenient, portion-controlled pack. Non-Dairy Mini Cups will be available in two flavors: 

  • P.B. & Cookies - Vanilla non-dairy frozen dessert with chocolate cookies & peanut butter, and
  • Caramel Chocolate Chunk - Caramel non-dairy frozen dessert with fudge chips & a salted caramel swirl--a brand new flavor only available in the mini cup format,

Including the recently launched non-dairy version of Netflix & Chilll'd™, the company now offers 17 non-dairy flavors, which is over 25% of the company's flavor lineup.

The sunflower butter flavors are appearing now on grocery shelves across the US and in Scoop Shops. The pint flavors will be featured at a MSRP of $4.48 - $5.99. Almond based mini cups will ship to stores this spring.
