Ben & Jerry's has been THE name in ice cream for years. Well, the two names, technically…
But there's one thing they've been lacking — a dairy-free option.

Well, not anymore!
The Vermont dessert giants have finally launched their first totally vegan line with four flavors:
That's Fudge Brownie, P.B. & Cookies, Chunky Monkey, and Coffee Caramel Fudge — all without a single animal product!

According to B&J's head flavor expert (how do we get THAT job??) Kirsten Schimoler, the taste and texture are just right — and they put in the hard work to make sure!
"We had everything from: it's too icy; it's too firm; there's too much fat in it and you get that chapstick mouthful…
It's amazing how changing one little thing about the recipe, you'll think, ‘Oh this will make it better.' Then you wind up five steps behind where you were."
We're glad all the hard work paid off!
Are YOU excited to try Ben & Jerry's vegan ice cream??
