Ben & Jerry’s Surprised America With Two New Vegan Ice Cream Flavors

Ben & Jerry’s already wowed us a couple of weeks ago when they dropped their brand new Pint Slices onto us.

Their newest release was so under-the-radar, however, that even the company isn’t prepared to talk about it.

According to The Huffington Post, two new VEGAN ice cream flavors were spotted in grocery store shelves in Philadelphia. Pictures of the two new flavors, Cherry Garcia and Coconut 7 Layer, were uploaded to Instagram and have spread like wildfire across the internet since.

BREAKING NEWS UPDATE: oh yeah I forgot. This too!!!! @benandjerrys

When The Huffington Post asked Ben & Jerry’s about the new flavors, they responded by saying that they weren’t ready to give more info on the ice creams just yet, but that “you never know what we might have in store!”

I’m guessing that Philly may just be a test market for these two flavors for now, but hey, maybe we’ll see these in stores nationwide in the near future.

Until then — anyone wanna send us a couple of pints?


Snickerturtle Pie: Snickers Meet Turtles

This is a pie where a Snickers bar and turtle candy flavors meet and make a glorious baby. Then, their baby is frozen. And then, that baby will soon become your new favorite ice cream/pie/cheesecake. We’re about to have a chocolate, caramel, cheesy, vanilla mess on our hands. You ready?

Look at that delicious mess!

I got this recipe from a friend’s mom. She brought this pie to my Bridal Shower few years back, and I just about died! I saw heaven as soon as I bit into it. (I really hope that there’s frozen pies in heaven…keeping my fingers crossed.)

I hunted her down a few days after my shower and we finally got her mom to give up the recipe. I thought it was going to be this extensive recipe with some intimidating method that I was going to be afraid to try… thank goodness it was none of that. It is soooo easy! The hardest part is waiting for it to freeze.

Like 5 hours. But it’s worth it!

The first time I made it I inhaled it; no surprise there.

The next time I made it my dad and I wolfed it down in one sitting. Two forks, one pie, and a father-daughter conversation.

We plan to repeat that today. The pie is in the freezer – chillin’.


Snickerturtle Pie

The original pie crust is with graham crackers; I used an Oreo pie crust because that is all I had.

You will need:

1 1/4 cups graham cracker crumbs

1/4 cup butter, melted

1 package (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened

1/3 cup sugar

1/3 cup smooth peanut butter

2 cups thawed whipped topping

1/2 cup chopped pecans, toasted and divided

1/4 cup caramel ice cream topping + more for drizzling on top

3 to 4 tablespoons melted chocolate for topping


In a mixing bowl mix together the crumbs and butter; press onto the bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch pie plate.

In your electric mixer’s bowl beat together the cream cheese, sugar, and peanut butter. Mix well.

Toast the pecans over medium heat for 3 minutes on your stovetop – shake them frequently so they don’t burn.

Add in the whipped topping and half of the toasted pecans; blend well.

On the bottom of the cookie crust spread 1/4 cup of caramel ice cream topping.

Spread the cream cheese mixture on top of the caramel.

Freeze for 3 hours.Take out the pie and spread the rest of the pecans over the top.

Melt some chocolate and drizzle it with a spoon across the entire pie.

When done with the chocolate, get the caramel topping and drizzle some more.

Put it back in the freezer for another 1 to 2 hours.

Dig in!

Keep it frozen.
