Burlington, Vt.-based Ben & Jerry's says it added two more core flavors to its extensive collection of Certified Vegan nondairy choices. Nondairy Boom Chocolatta is a mocha and caramel frozen delight with fudge flakes, gluten-free chocolate cookies and a gluten-free chocolate cookie core. Nondairy Bananas Foster has a banana and cinnamon base with almond toffee pieces and a salted caramel core.
According to the company, “Core” flavors are an innovation that allows treat-lovers to customize each bite. Both flavors have a center of “spoonable euphoria” that goes straight down the middle of the pint.
"We know that people who choose nondairy frozen desserts love variety," says Dena Wimette, head of innovation for Ben & Jerry's. "They want to avoid dairy and still have amazing taste. These two new nondairy flavors will satisfy their cravings for something different and delicious."
Boom Chocolatta and Bananas Foster bring Ben & Jerry's nondairy options to a total of 18 in the United States — almost 40% of Ben & Jerry's entire flavor lineup, the company says. In addition to being nondairy and vegan, both new additions are Certified Gluten Free."Our flavor gurus believe in creating concoctions for all," says Wimette. "We want everyone to be able to have some Ben & Jerry's joy, including those who choose gluten-free.”
