Ben & Jerry’s are finally launching a non-dairy ice-cream in Ireland

Attention all vegan/ lactose intolerant sweet lovers – this one's for you.

Ben & Jerry's have announced that their non-dairy ice-cream will soon be available on these shores.

The range has been available in the US for some time now, however, despite repeated requests from dairy-free foodies in the UK and Ireland, the company have been slow to introduce the product on this side of the atlantic. 

So, what took so long?

Well, a statement posted on the company's official website revealed that the range has been in works for quite some time now:

"We couldn’t keep the secret anymore… we are working on bringing Non-Dairy here! We hope to have it available in Ireland soon."

“We've been working on this for quite a while, and want to make sure these flavours live up to what Ben & Jerry's is known for: enormous chunks, delicious swirls and a commitment to values-led ingredient sourcing.”

“Our Flavour Gurus have been hard at work to ensure they taste just as euphoric as our dairy tubs, which includes a lot of taste testing!”

The ice-cream makers could not confirm the exact release date, but they did advise customers to keep a close eye on social media for all the “latest non-dairy updates.”

What a time to be alive!
