The Flavor Gurus at Ben & Jerry’s didn’t have to look too far for their next inspiration. The cookie dough batter bowl started it all.
In the late 1980’s, Ben and Jerry took a fan suggestion to put chunks of raw cookie dough into vanilla ice cream. As a result, they had an instant winner on their hands.
In the beginning, the flavor was offered only to locals. Then on March 20th, 1991 manufacturing issues were solved. Cookie Dough pints began to roll off the line and across the country.
The new line will feature three new varieties:
- Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Core: A nod to the original. Cookie milk ice cream with fudge chips & a chocolate chip cookie dough core.
- Sweet Like Sugar Cookie Dough Core: Sugar cookie sweetness. Sweet cream ice cream with a hint of almond flavor & shortbread cookies & cherry Ice cream with cherries & a sugar cookie dough core.
- Wake & “No Bake” Cookie Dough Core: No oven needed. Vanilla ice cream with peanut butter cookies, peanut butter ice cream with fudge chips & a no bake cookie dough core.
Head to your local Ben & Jerry’s Scoop Shop, or retailer (pints at a MSRP $4.29-$4.99) to find the newest cookie dough flavors, available now nationwide.
