That’s My Jam, Hazed and Confused, Salted Caramel, and Peanut Butter Fudge added to the Ben and Jerry’s flavor repertoire

Jane Bruce

Peanut Butter and Fudge: the perfect marriage in ice cream form, and one of the four new "core" flavors at Ben and Jerry's.

Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream announced four new flavors this week as part of their new “core” line, modeled after their popular “Karamel Sutra” flavor which features two ice cream “halves” with a core flavor center.

A Visit to the Ben & Jerry's Flavor Graveyard (Slideshow)

The new flavors are “That’s My Jam” (chocolate and raspberry ice cream with fudge chips and a raspberry core), “Peanut Butter Fudge” (chocolate and peanut butter ice cream with mini-peanut butter cups and peanut butter fudge core), “Salted Caramel” (sweet cream ice cream with blonde brownies and a salted caramel core), and “Hazed and Confused,” chocolate and hazelnut ice creams with fudge chips and a hazelnut fudge core).

“We are always looking to make something bigger and better for our fans,” said Eric Fredette, Ben & Jerry’s lead flavor developer. “We wanted to blow out the concept of fun flavors, chunks and swirls and take it over the top.”

And even though just a half-cup of these creamy, dreamy pints contains a whopping total of 260-300 calories, you don’t have to feel too guilty. These are the first Ben and Jerry’s flavors to be made completely 100 percent Fairtrade certified with no GMO-ingredients. Look out for the four new flavors in stores this February, priced at $4.39 a pint.

Ben & Jerry's Nails It With New Core Ice Cream Flavors

We love Ben & Jerry's for almost too many reasons to count -- they're witty, they're ethical, they're responsible, they invented Half Baked, and founders Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield are the cutest friends of all time. Now we have a new reason to swoon: four new flavors of Ben & Jerry's Cores.

Introducing US Core Flavors! Salted Caramel, That’s My Jam, Peanut Butter Fudge, and Hazed & Confused. Time to spoon!

&mdash Ben & Jerry's (@benandjerrys) February 24, 2014

The new ice creams feature a column running down the middle of the pint that is a core center of fudge, caramel or raspberry jam. It's genius.

You know when you can't decide which pint of ice cream to buy, so you end up buying two and eating way too much? Ben and Jerry don't want you to go through that every time. And you know when you're treating yourself to a sundae and eat all the fudge on top first because there's no way around it, so you're left with a fudge-less scoop at the bottom? Ben and Jerry really don't want you to endure that either.

Fear not. The perfect scoop is within reach.

With Ben & Jerry's Cores, you'll get two flavors in one pint (except for the Salted Caramel flavor, which features only one flavor of ice cream), and a filling center running down the middle of the entire container, from top to bottom. It's dreamy, it will solve all your problems and we can't believe this hasn't caught on sooner.

The new varieties include Hazed & Confused, Peanut Butter Fudge, Salted Caramel and That's My Jam.

Hazed and Confused is chocolate and hazelnut ice cream with fudge chips and a hazelnut fudge core that tastes like thick, creamy Nutella. If you're a Nutella fan, run, don't walk.

That's My Jam may give Hazed and Confused a run for its money, however. It's chocolate and raspberry ice cream on either side of a raspberry core that actually has seeds in it and tastes like the jam you wish you had spread on your toast this morning. It's crazy good.

On the other hand, if you're a peanut butter fan, Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge is pretty good too. Chocolate and peanut butter ice cream with mini peanut butter cups and a peanut butter fudge core that has the exact consistency as peanut butter? You're going to want to try this one too. The fudgy center may stick to the roof of your mouth the same way peanut butter does, but you have the ice cream there to wash it off.

And the (obligatory?) Salted Caramel flavor is sweet cream ice cream with blonde brownies and a salted caramel core.

The pints are $4.39 each and will be hitting stores in the U.S. this month. What will Ben & Jerry's think of next?

Ben & Jerry's Unveils a New Line & New Flavors

BURLINGTON, Vt.--( BUSINESS WIRE )--With the nation caught amidst an impressive winter, complete with polar vortexes, feet of snow in some places and a country-wide cold snap, there’s one sure sign that spring can’t be far away… Ben & Jerry’s proudly announces its brand new line with four new flavors, and the company believes it will resonate resoundingly with its “core” consumers.

The “Core” line is modeled off Ben & Jerry’s popular Karamel Sutra flavor. The concept includes a core center down the middle of each flavor, which in most cases perfectly compliments the two super-premium ice creams that are packed into every pint. Every Core flavor adds another component the company has become famous for: chunks, which add another layer of flavor and texture. Can you say: “Super Premi-YUM?”

The flavors were created by Ben & Jerry’s team of Flavor Gurus at the company’s headquarters in Vermont. “We are always looking to make something bigger and better for our fans,” said the lead flavor developer, Eric Fredette. “We wanted to blow out the concept of fun flavors, chunks and swirls and take it over the top,” Fredette added.

The four new Core flavors include:

  • Hazed & Confused: Chocolate & Hazelnut Ice Creams with Fudge Chips and a Hazelnut Fudge Core
  • That’s My Jam: Raspberry & Chocolate Ice Creams with Fudge Chips and a Raspberry Core
  • Peanut Butter Fudge: Chocolate & Peanut Butter Ice Creams with mini Peanut Butter Cups and a Peanut Butter Fudge Core
  • Salted Caramel: Sweet Cream Ice Cream with Blonde Brownies and a Salty Caramel Core

Fans who’ve been lucky to have a sneak peek are quick to point out that each pint becomes a personalized eating experience customized by the consumer. Those who want some of the core fudge, caramel or real raspberry jam in every bite can make it happen. Those who like eating one flavor of ice cream at a time, and then save the core center as a treat at the end have found the right product for themselves. And for those who like to eat the sweet spot out of life, first, the “tunnelers” as they’re known, can pop the lid, grab a spoon and get right to business.

All four of the new fulltime Core flavors will be available in pints beginning in February 2014 (MSRP: $4.39 per pint). Handmade Core Sundaes featuring a core of hot fudge or caramel between your two favorite flavors will be available in Ben & Jerry’s Scoop Shops beginning this spring.

As excited as the progressive Vermont ice cream maker is to introduce a new line of Core flavors, the team is equally proud that these four new flavors walk the socially responsible sourcing talk. The Cores are the first full line of Ben & Jerry’s innovations to be 100% Fairtrade certified and made with Non-GMO sourced ingredients.

Commence the Freak-Out: Ben & Jerry's Founders Announce New Core Flavors

If you didn't already find Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield, the founders of Ben & Jerry's, utterly charming, spoiler alert: you're about to. Yesterday, the duo revealed many exciting tidbits in a Reddit IAmA, including how they settled on the iconic brand's name, what a Ben & Jerry's baby is, and, most excitingly, that new Core flavors will hit freezer shelves next week.

Reddit user Clarkson2207: How did you guys come up with the name?
Ben Cohen: I was thinking we should call it "Josephine's Flying Machine." . . . So anyway, it was a really stupid idea, which is what Jerry said, and we realized it was traditional for an ice cream parlor to call itself by the names of the owners. And then the question was: should Ben or Jerry come first? We decided that the E sound belonged at the end, it just rolled off the tongue better. Because of that, we made Jerry the president of the corporation. I don't know what I was. Subcommander president?
Jerry Greenfield: And the pint containers, you might notice, have a photo of Ben and me. When the ice cream first came out, the photo pretty much covered the entire lid of the container. And over the years, the size of it has been getting progressively — now it's about the size of a nickel, I think, and in no time at all, we should be down to the size of a dime.

Reddit user adisobedientavocado: What is the best reaction you have ever seen because of your ice cream?
BC: Well, it was the woman who came up to me and said "I call one thigh BEN and the other thigh JERRY."
JG: I like it when people come up and talk about how they have Ben and me in their freezer, as if our little heads are stuck inside their freezers!

Reddit user Dani_California: . . . Having been recently pregnant and a huge fan of your products, I think you should create a joke flavor pairing like pregnancy pickles ice cream. Mmmmm.
JG: You know, I've heard many stories about pregnant women sending their husbands out on late night ice cream runs. And they have a particularly specific flavor that they want. And husband might end up going to three or four different stores to try and find that flavor. Obviously, it is VERY important to find the particular flavor a pregnant woman wants. Ben, at one time, thought of setting up a program whereby there were certain stores that would have ALL Ben & Jerry's flavors — all the time. "AFISAAT." All Flavors In Stock At All Times. It obviously is a brilliant idea that Ben & Jerry's has not seen brought about. But that would solve a big problem for many pregnant women and their doting significant others.
BC: Also, here in Vermont, there's a phenomenon known as "Ben & Jerry's babies." They come out REALLY big. Those are babies from moms who have eaten a lot of Ben & Jerry's ice cream during their pregnancy. And the babies come out very robust.

Reddit user Apologician: Can we get a hint about any new flavors coming out this year?
JG: We have some new CORE flavors coming out that we're ready to announce next week, so it's taking our popular CORE flavors from this year — with a big dollop of jam or fudge or caramel in the middle — and raising that to new and greater heights!

Reddit user Frajer: What puts a flavor in the flavor graveyard?
BC: It doesn't matter if I like the flavor or if [Jerry] likes the flavor — if not enough people buy it, it goes bye-bye.

Reddit user Kemuel: Ever thought of having dead flavours come back from the graveyard over Halloween?
BC: OOOH! I think that's a great idea. No, I had never thought about having flavors from the graveyard come back for Halloween, but I think the guys here . . . might work to resurrect them!
JG: We could call it re-incone-nation.

Reddit user RecycledAccountName: I have one very pressing question. You guys are based in Vermont. Vermont is the United States' largest producer of maple syrup. Where is the maple syrup infused ice cream? I didn't forget about the Maple Blondie Limited Batch you guys put out a few years back. That stuff was delicious and I still think about it before bed occasionally. Any thoughts to bring this flavor, or another maple syrup concoction, back into my life?
JG: It's a fantastic question. Ben & Jerry's has made many flavors flavored with maple syrup over the years, dating back to when we first opened in a homemade ice cream parlor in 1978. And, uh . . . there is this idea that people have that because Vermont produces so much incredible maple syrup that the natural thing is to put it in Ben & Jerry's ice cream, but unfortunately very few people purchase those flavors. It is a DELICIOUS concoction. I personally LOVED Maple Blondie when we were making it. But the marketplace has spoken, once again!
BC: Well, in the early early days, I was the ice cream delivery person. And in the early early days, we had a Vermont Maple Walnut ice cream. It was a flavor. And nobody ever bought it, and I'm wondering Why is there this flavor and I finally did a promotion one time, at the State Capitol House, and I discovered the only people who eat Maple Walnut are politicians. I think they're just trying to prove that they're really Vermont-y or something!

Reddit user MayorCrab: Waffle or sugar cone?
BC: Well, waffle has two meanings — like homemade made there right in the store? Definitely that.
JG: I gotta go with a waffle cone also. It's got the texture. It's got the crunch without being brittle or splinter-y. And you can shove a LOT more ice cream into a waffle cone than you can on a sugar cone.

Ben & Jerry's Released A Line Of Ice Creams That Are Topped With A Layer Of Chocolate Ganache

The best part about Ben & Jerry's is that each pint is basically its own little ice cream sundae. You don't need any syrup, any toppings, or anything else really to make it delicious. But just say you wanted to go over the top and add something, well, you DEFINITELY need their new line of ice creams, then, you wild one.

Ben & Jerry's announced a new line of ice creams today called "Topped." It's made up of seven different ice cream flavors that are each covered with a velvety layer of chocolate ganache with chunks of other goodness too! Seriously, no matter what kind of flavor profile you enjoy you'll find something great here.

Whiskey Biz seems to be a crowd fave so far! It's made with a brown butter bourbon ice cream with blonde brownies and whiskey caramel swirls topped with white chocolatey ganache and white fudge chunks. It tastes authentic because it is! It was made in partnership with Vermont's WhistlePig Whiskey and their award-winning six-year whiskey (WhistlePig PiggyBack Rye) cooked right into the caramel swirls. So good.

Having tried them all, we think you'll also love PB Over the Top, which is made with chocolate ice cream with peanut butter swirls & peanut butter cups topped with mini peanut butter cups & chocolatey ganache. YES, I said TOPPED WITH MINI PEANUT BUTTER CUPS. Another winner (OK, they're all winners!) is Chocolate Caramel Cookie Dough, made with chocolate ice cream with caramel swirls and gobs of chocolate chip cookie dough topped with caramel cups & chocolatey ganache. Next up is Salted Caramel Brownie which features vanilla ice cream with salted caramel swirls & fudge brownies topped with caramel cups & chocolatey ganache.

Drop Everything, Ben & Jerry's Added New Cookie Dough Core Flavors

Ben & Jerry’s are giving the people what they want, and what they want is cookie dough. This past fall, they separated the dough from ice cream with their snackable cookie dough bites, and now the dairy behemoths are releasing three new Cookie Dough Core flavors. As always, the dough is made with heat-treated flour and pasteurized egg yolks, ensuring that you don’t have to worry about food-borne illnesses that taint regular homemade cookie dough. Let the euphoria commence.

First up is Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Core, which slams a slab of cookie dough between Cookie Milk Ice Cream with Fudge Chips. More cookie dough sounds good, so keep these coming. Next we’ve got Wake & “No Bake” which combines Vanilla Ice Cream with Peanut Butter Cookies, Peanut Butter Ice Cream with Fudge Chips, and a No Bake Cookie Dough Core. Finally, for the sugar cookie addicts, there’s the Sweet Like Sugar Cookie Dough Core, comprised of Sweet Like Sugar with a hint of Almond Flavor & Shortbread Cookies, Cherry Ice Cream with Cherries, and a Sugar Cookie Dough Core. Whew!

“We wanted to give our fans a chance to expand their love of our cookie dough flavors and offer both classic and entirely new combinations,” Ben & Jerry’s flavor guru Craig Koskiniemi said in a press release. “In trials, our fans clamored for the new Cookie Dough Core flavors.” Hey Craig, you’re doing great, please keep the Cookie Dough Core flavors coming.

All three flavors are now available at Scoop Shops and retailers and cost between $4.29 and $4.99.

Ben & Jerry’s New “Core” Flavors Coming This Month

As if all the reasons we already love Ben & Jerry’s weren’t convincing enough, the company has gone and made it that much easier to fall into a pint and never want to leave.

Four new flavors, dubbed “Cores,” each boast an ooey-gooey center of caramel, fudge, or raspberry jam. Who said heaven doesn’t exist on earth?

Salted Caramel never looked so fine. Image courtesy of Ben & Jerry’s.

When is salted caramel not a winner? It’s basically the opposite of Russell Crowe (A Winter’s Tale? Seriously, Russell?). Ben and Jerry personally make it that much better by surrounding a swirling chunk of pure salted caramel (same basic ingredients as crack) with fluffy vanilla ice cream and real blondie chunks.

If Ben & Jerry’s Salted Caramel Core was an Olympian, it’d be Sage Kotensburg. Blond and oh-so-smooth on ice. You’re welcome for that.

But alas, even a Salted Caramel core has my taste buds a little bored. Time to ramp it up a bit:

Chocolate and peanut butter need to just get a room already. Image courtesy of Ben & Jerry’s.

I’m a chocolate person, hands down. As long as it cacao is involved, you can count me in. And that goes double for a chocolate and peanut butter explosion that would put Reese’s to shame. If you think Half Baked is Full Excellent, eat now and ask questions later.

No shame in eating the whole pint. At least you finished something. Image courtesy of Ben & Jerry’s.

Oh, Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield. Besides claiming my favorite meet-cute of all time, you’ll forever have my heart thanks to your lively puns. Seriously guys, you’re putting John Oliver to shame.

Is it any wonder they’re still best friends? Photo courtesy of Getty Images.

Hazed & Confused is basically Nirvana in semi-liquified form. This time, it’s chocolate and hazelnut hugging a fantastically fudge-y center strip, with plenty of chunky fudge chips to keep things interesting. “Come As You Are,” indeed.

And finally (drum roll, please), my spirit animal in ice cream form:

Speechless. Image courtesy of Ben & Jerry’s.

How has it taken the world this long to dream-up the wonder that is That’s My Jam? It puts my standard Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough to shame. Chocolate and raspberry ice cream never tasted so good, lovingly surrounding a hunk of jam with actual seeds in it. This is the real deal.

Sounds gross, looks insanely amazing. Seriously, raspberry jam hasn’t been used this well since Spaceballs.

1. Wake & No Bake Cookie Dough Core

Wake & "No Bake" is the flavor that I never knew that I needed until now. The flavor consists of vanilla ice cream with peanut butter cookies, peanut butter ice cream with fudge chips, and a no bake cookie dough core. This core is the best core out of all of the flavors I have tried. The consistency of the cookie dough is crunchy and gooey and pairs well with both the peanut butter and vanilla ice cream. I never want to eat ice cream again if it isn't this flavor.

Ben & Jerry’s releases four new ‘core’ flavors for an all-in-one sundae

Ben & Jerry’s is known for its unconventional ice cream flavors, but now it’s attempting to reshape the way we eat the frozen treat. The Vermont-based brand has introduced four new flavors, and each one has all the elements of an ice cream sundae.

Borrowing from its Karamel Sutra flavor, which features a core of soft caramel, all four of the new flavors, dubbed the “core” line, include two ice creams, separated by a sweet and gooey streak down the middle.

The four new flavors include Hazed & Confused, with chocolate and hazelnut ice creams with fudge chips and a hazelnut fudge core That’s My Jam, with raspberry and chocolate ice creams with fudge chips and a raspberry core Peanut Butter Fudge, with chocolate and peanut butter ice creams with miniature peanut butter cups and a peanut butter fudge core and Salted Caramel with sweet cream ice cream, blonde brownies and a salty caramel core.

Anyone else thinking about taking a spoon and scooping out the entire core of caramel?

The pints are also the brand’s first line of ice creams to be 100% fair-trade certified and made with non-GMO sourced ingredients.

Priced at $4.39, all four flavors are available at stores nationwide. The brand also plans on adding handmade core sundaes with a core of hot fudge or caramel between two ice cream flavors to its Ben & Jerry’s Scoop Shops in the spring.

Taste test: TODAY reviews Ben & Jerry's new ɼore' flavors

Ice cream kings Ben & Jerry’s unveiled their new “Core” line on Monday and had to get to the bottom of the revolutionary ice cream containers (literally).

Modeled after Ben & Jerry's flavor Karamel Sutra, the new additions feature a column of fudge, caramel or raspberry jam running down the middle of the ice cream pint, so with each scoop of ice cream comes a dose of one of the tasty center elements. The “Core” collection boasts four flavors, including:

  • Hazed & Confused: Hazelnut and chocolate ice creams with fudge chips and a hazelnut fudge core
  • That’s My Jam: Chocolate and raspberry ice creams with fudge chips and a raspberry core
  • Peanut Butter Fudge: Chocolate and peanut butter ice creams with mini peanut butter cups and a peanut butter fudge core
  • Salted Caramel: Sweet cream ice cream with blonde brownies mixed in and a salty caramel core editors decided to take one for the team and try all four flavors on Wednesday… at 10 a.m EST. The early hour didn't hold anyone back as the containers were surrounded as soon as they hit the table.

The Salted Caramel container was the first to be emptied by the ravenous bunch."The Salted Caramel was similar to Ben & Jerry's Karamel Sutra, but I liked the added crunch," said producer Lauren Sullivan.

Hazed & Confused and Peanut Butter Fudge were the next two to be devoured. "The Peanut Butter Fudge was my favorite," said supervising multimedia producer Carissa Ray. "It was chocolate but still had the consistency of peanut butter. That took it for me."

That’s My Jam was one of the least favorites among the team, as most were thrown off by having raspberry jam in their ice cream.

"The jam one wasn't my jam," said producer Courtney Thompson. "The texture and consistency grossed me out."

Sugar headaches set in within 10 minutes of the ice cream showdown, but the general consensus is that any headaches, nausea or sugar crashes that followed were well worth it.
