Ben & Jerry’s Resurrect ‘Candy Bar Pie’ In Pint Slice Form

Ben & Jerry’s has a Flavor Graveyard where it buries retired flavors, usually never to be seen again. That is where their Candy Bar Pie flavor was laid to rest for five years, until now.

That flavor is back in Pint Slice form, being unveiled along with a new Amaze-Mint Pint Slice.

Amaze-Mint consists of cool mint cookie balls covered in dark chocolate and cookie crumbs, while fans of the Candy Bar Pie will remember its fudge flakes mixed with peanut butter and pretzel pieces.

When choosing to revive the Candy Bar Pie, Ben & Jerry’s said its flavor guru Eric Fredette noted the popularity of sweet and salty combinations, making it a perfect fit for its Pint Slices.

Believe it or not, Ben & Jerry’s has a literal “Flavor Graveyard” in its headquarters of Waterbury, Vermont, filled with tombstones in honor of its fallen flavors.

It’s not often they revive a flavor from the graveyard, although they did it in 2018, re-introducing the Bob Marley inspired “One Love” flavor only a year after its metaphorical burial, when fans voted on it to be brought back.

Before that, they hadn’t resurrected a flavor since 2013, when B&J brought back the classic White Russian, which was originally in production from 1986-1996.

When asked if more graveyard flavors could be resurrected to push its Pint Slice products, a Ben & Jerry’s representative told Foodbeast, “You never know! But you can hope.”

Ben & Jerry’s New Flavors for 2013 Are No Chunky Monkey

Coffee Coffee Buzz Buzz. That’s not just how our brains are functioning on this lovely Monday morning, it also happens to be just one of Ben & Jerry’s five new flavors for 2013: Coffee Coffee Buzz Buzz, Chocolate Peppermint Crunch, Candy Bar Pie, Pineapple Passionfruit and Vanilla Honey Caramel.

Previously only available at Ben & Jerry’s scoop shop locations, Coffee Coffee Buzz Buzz has been re-released in retail pints and features coffee-flavored ice cream drizzled with chunks of espresso bean fudge.

The Chocolate Peppermint Crunch flavor features chocolate ice cream, peppermint and fudge swirls and mint chocolate cookies.

The two new Greek frozen yogurt flavors, Pineapple Passionfruit and Vanilla Honey Caramel, are each made, respectively, with pineapple Greek frozen yogurt, pineapple pieces and a passion fruit swirl, and vanilla Greek frozen yogurt with a honey caramel swirl. Ben & Jerry’s most recent flavor, the Liz Lemon Greek yogurt, will be available through May 31.

The most exciting flavor of the bunch by far, however, is the Candy Bar Pie. Sadly only available in scoop shops, it consists of peanut butter ice cream, fudge flakes, chocolate nougat and sweet & salty pretzel swirls. Kind of like a Take 5 Bar, only more frozen and only about 15 miles too far away from me.
