After years of outright begging -- and even a Change.org petition -- from people with dairy-free diets, Ben & Jerry's has created its first-ever lineup of certified-vegan ice cream flavors. In other words, people who can't or choose not to consume milk can finally stress-eat a pint of Chunky Monkey on a bad day, just like everyone else.
The four new flavors -- two of which are classics, two exclusively non-dairy -- are made with an almond-milk base and are free of any animal products, like eggs, honey, and of course, cow's milk. However, Ben & Jerry's Flavor Guru Kirsten Schimoler claims the quartet of ice creams, or "non-dairy frozen treats," come packed with the same crazy indulgent chunks and swirls as their cream-based counterparts.
Here's the full-lineup:
- P.B. & Cookies: Vanilla with Chocolate Sandwich Cookies & Crunchy Peanut Butter Swirls
- Coffee Caramel Fudge: Coffee with Fudge Chunks & Caramel Swirls
- Chocolate Fudge Brownie: Chocolate with Fudge Brownies from Greyston Bakery
- Chunky Monkey: Banana with Fudge Chunks & Walnuts
