You heard the great news, or maybe you didn’t, that Ben & Jerry’s has added Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough to their non-dairy ice cream line-up. And it gets better. They’re also releasing the Vegan Cookie Dough Chunks from that flavor as their own product! They’re for snacking, not baking, but we’re not complaining.
Ben & Jerry’s Vegan Cookie Dough Chunks are Rolling Out
The idea of putting cookie dough into ice cream originated with Ben & Jerry’s back in 1984, and it’s the company’s #1 favorite flavor around the world. But according to their Innovation Manager, Jody Eley, Ben & Jerry’s fans have been requesting ‘just the chunks’ for quite a while.
During a short market test in Vermont last summer, fans snatched up the dough in record time. Bags flew off the shelves in mere days and stores could not keep the delicious dough bites in stock! Now, Ben & Jerry’s is rollin’ out the dough to fans across the US.
They have released three varieties of Cookie Dough Chunks, but only the vegan variety is dairy-free. They all come in similar packaging, so be sure to look for the bold “vegan” label on the front. Once you try them, come back and leave a rating & review! It helps others make an informed purchasing decision.
