With a wide range of flavors, the American company offers ice cream that the taste buds can recognize, in sizes and shapes to suit every taste. It seems insurmountable to think seriously about finding the best and seven best flavors they have.
With luck on the good side, a true and reliable source has been discovered. This is from the manufacturers themselves, the Ben & Jerry website, which covered the top flavors of the past year (2020), especially given the global situation at the time.
The statistics they have collected for this year are believed to have been reliably compiled and reflect the true outcome of public consumption of one of the most popular products man has ever invented.
For those who have been avid consumers of Ben & Jerry over the years, a particular taste may come and go for reasons the manufacturers themselves considered. They can also trigger a rebirth of a “lost” taste if they deem it viable or for whatever reason.
The seven best ice cream flavors from Ben & Jerry
The annual listing of the top ice cream flavors is certainly not the same; it changes due to so many factors. But for the year that came and went, this is the list, and we start at the beginning of it all.
Two main ingredients merge with two other baked goods and become the most coveted taste of the year. Fudge brownies are from Greystone Bakery and the cookie dough is from Rhino Foods.
Both baked goods are fused with vanilla and chocolate creams, which in some ways reflect the union and harmony of the three companies to success.
2. Cherry Garcia
A lead guitarist and a die-hard ice cream parlor owner influenced the name of this secondary flavor. Much like the Greystone and Rhino Bakeries, Jerry Garcia and the Grateful Dead rose to fame out of the dark, and Jane Williamson was in the audience.
Jane persistently wrote to Ben & Jerry headquarters to name an ice cream in honor of the band. Originally made from vanilla but converted to cherry, the first 8 pints were sent to Jerry and Jane was cared for for a year.
3. Chocolate fondant brownie
The partnership with Greystone Bakery developed into a different flavor, but it never started off perfectly. Both the bakery and the ice cream machine were new at the beginning and had to accommodate each other for the connection.
Greystone had perfected the fudge brownie, but it was too big for the ice cream maker. The baker spent countless weeks trying to find the right size.
In 1984 the first batch of this flavor was introduced to the world. In with vanilla cream, chocolate biscuit dough rolls into the mixture in small, bite-sized drops.
Originally pinned by an anonymous employee on the bulleting board of the very first Scoop shop in Burlington, Vermont, it made its way to fourth place last year.
5. Today’s dough
The propensity of the two co-owners to honor personalities by naming them in their ice cream will never be lost. This time Mr. Jimmy Fallon is at the center of his nomination as “Entertainer of the Year”.
An extravagant mix of two ice creams, caramel and chocolate, with bites of three different biscuits and batter.
6. Phish Food
Just like the second placer, this ice cream flavor is dedicated to the local music band Phish. It is gluten-free chocolate ice cream with marshmallow and caramel and fudge fish as band members.
Just like the ice cream maker, the Phish band came out of Burlington, Vermont and gained much recognition for earning an ice cream named after them.
7. Strawberry cheesecake
As simple as the name suggests and included in the ingredients list, this ice cream variant contains real strawberries and a cheesecake flavor that you will love. This puts this ice rink in seventh place among a stack of more than sixty flavors and counts.
There are other flavors of ice cream under the Ben & Jerry’s brand, but look out for the same list for this year’s top flavors. While waiting, open another variant while watching a movie.
