Other than family, there are two men who have always been there for us when we needed them the most – Ben and Jerry.

Whether you've had a long day at work, are going through a bad break-up, or let's face it, are just in the mood to eat a entire tub of Phish Food in one sitting, the ice cream entrepreneurs have never let us down – and now it's time for vegan and lactose intolerant consumers to get in on the action.

Earlier this year, news that Ben and Jerry's would soon bring its non-dairy ice-cream to Irish shores caused a bit of a frenzy online, and although no official release that had been revealed, people were gearing up to try the new mystery flavours.

Well, today the wait finally over, as the ice cream brand have announced that the new line-up is set to hit Irish supermarkets later this month.

Gone are the days when your non-dairy friends would drool with envy over every sweet spoonful of  ice cream you shovel into your face, because they're about to get three mouth-watering flavours of their very own, including:

  • Peanut Butter & Cookies: Vanilla non-dairy ice cream with chocolate sandwich cookies and crunchy peanut butter swirls.

  • Chocolate Fudge Brownies: Chocolate non-dairy ice cream with fudge brownies.

  • Chunkey Monkey: Banana non-dairy ice cream with chocolate chunks and walnuts.

What's more, Ben and Jerry's new flavours are the first ever non-dairy Fairtrade-certified ice cream in Ireland. It's win-win!

“Our fans dared us to go dairy-less… and we did! Creating non-dairy ice cream that meets the funky and chunky expectations of Ben & Jerry’s fans was quite a challenge,” says Ben & Jerry’s Flavour Guru, Andrea Ball.

“But we’re delighted to confirm the long wait is nearly over! Spoons at the ready to dig in…”

The non-dairy flavours will be available from late September 2017, with an RRP of €7.45.


Urban Bourbon? Sign us up!

Yep, Ben & Jerry's might be releasing a boozy ice cream flavour, and we are so up for it.

Urban Bourbon consists of caramel ice cream, almonds, fudge flakes, and obvs, a few shots of caramel bourbon.

The Instagram account, Candy Hunting is famous for having the inside scoop (heh heh) on upcoming sweets and treats, and according to them, the flavour will be released in the next few months.

Now, Ben & Jerry's hasn't confirmed anything just yet, but as THRILLIST points out, the ice cream company applied to trademark the name Urban Bourbon a couple of months ago aaaand Walmart has also set up a black landing page to purchase it.

Oh, Ben and Jerry, why do you tease us?!


Ice cream is one of our favourite treats here in Shemazing! HQ. Even though it's frozen, it's one of the most perfect comfort foods out there.

One of our fave brands is Ben & Jerry's, mainly because of their weird but wonderful flavour concoctions – but now the brand has moved up to the top of our list because it's just released a new flavour that is all kinds of gorgeous.

One Sweet World combines Fairtrade caramel and coffee ice cream with marshmallows, caramel swirls and chucky chocolate ampersands (&).

The new batch has come about because of it's new campaign aiming to bring people from all walks of life together.

The company has said of the new flavour: "With our latest campaign being all about coming together, it only felt right to create a chunk inspired by the '&'s' from our very own name – one we like to think of as a symbol of togetherness and unity!

"Like many people, we've become increasingly concerned by the pockets of fear and prejudice emerging within our society. And, unlike ice cream, this simply isn't cool!

"We think it's time to take a stand against division and to celebrate what unites our communities, so we've partnered with civil-rights charity HOPE not hate, to bring people together in the name of unity and compassion!"

We can't wait to try it!


Our favourite flavour of Ben and Jerry's has sadly been recalled due to a possible contamination.

Tubs of Cookie Dough (yes, Cookie Dough *sob*) may contain small bits of metal inside, and the ice creams giants are asking customers to send their tubs back to the shops.

A safety notice has been issued on behalf of the company, asking people to check the batch numbers on the label.

Four different batch codes – which are on sale in Ireland and the UK – have been affected by the contamination.

The batch codes are L62110L011, L62111L011, L62112L011 and L62113L01.


Rejoice all poor lactose intolerant souls! Ben & Jerry’s have heard you cries for help and are coming to rescue you. Oh and the same applies to any vegans out there who may be guilty of craving some dairy goodness from time to time.


Following a petition that was signed by over 27,000 people co-founder Jerry Greenfield has said that the company are working on a dairy-free frozen treat. He said that "In the US there are (dairy-free) alternatives from smaller companies but Ben & Jerry’s will be first mainstream company that will do that and will also do it in a really delicious way."

The company got people cheering when they responded to a tweet back in April.


We’re not the only ones that think it’s a pretty big deal, with the man himself saying he thinks it’s a “big thing” for Ben & Jerry’s to be working on the product.


And for anyone who isn’t a fan of bananas, have no fear. Some of the easiest alternatives to frozen dairy goodness are known as banana ‘nice-creams’ by food bloggers worldwide. Unfortunately bananas just aren’t for everyone, but Ben & Jerry’s have you covered. The team are working on coconut and almond milk based alternatives.


The dairy-free ice cream should be available to U.S customers next spring, and just a little later for everyone else.

The wait is sure to be worth it!
