Unilever-owned Ben & Jerry’s has introduced its new Topped ice cream line in the US, which features seven new flavours covered with a chocolate ganache.
Inspired by sundaes, each Topped flavour is paired with a layer of semi-soft chocolate ganache on top.
Whiskey Biz features brown butter bourbon ice cream with blonde brownies and whiskey caramel swirls, which is topped with white chocolate ganache and white fudge chunks. The flavour has been produced in partnership with Vermont spirit brand WhistlePig Whiskey, featuring its PiggyBackRye whiskey cooked into the caramel swirls.
Meanwhile Chocolate Caramel Cookie Dough consists of chocolate ice cream with caramel swirls and ‘gobs’ of chocolate chip cookie dough, which is topped with caramel cups and chocolate ganache.
The remaining five flavours include:
“We wanted to dial up the indulgence level with this unique line of flavours, which entirely challenges how you eat this ice cream,” said Dena Wimette, Ben & Jerry’s innovation guru.
“We started with sundaes and all the things you add to sundaes to make them great as our inspiration. You could say we ended up going over the Topped.”
Ben & Jerry’s new Topped ice cream line is available now at retailers nationwide for an RRP of $4.99-5.49.
Earlier this month, the company launched Cookie Dough Twist tubs in Rain-dough and Dough-ble Chocolate varieties.
