Ben & Jerry's

This week, the guys at Ben & Jerry’s have caused quite a stir. The Vermont-based company, known for its unconventional ice cream flavors, is attempting to reshape the way we eat the frozen delicacy by introducing four new “core” flavors, each one having all the elements of an ice cream sundae.

Be still my beating heart!

The new flavors – Hazed and Confused, That’s My Jam, Peanut Butter Fudge and Salted Caramel – also are the brand’s first line of ice creams to be 100 percent fair-trade certified and made with non-GMO sourced ingredients.

The four new flavors will be making their debut in winter’s twilight.

Hmmm. Winter’s Twilight … that has a Ben and Jerry’s flavor ring to it! Maybe it’s a mint ice cream with pastel, spring-colored M&Ms.

This week, for a Starbucks gift certificate, put yourself in Vermont, across the table from Ben and Jerry. What if they were looking for more new flavor suggestions? In six words, what new flavors would you propose?


  • Sochi Slush (vanilla with red hots)
  • Berry and the Jets (blueberries, fudge)
  • Mellow Mellow (rocky road, extra marshmallows)

Dig into it, just like you would for those big chocolate pieces in a pint of Chunky Monkey.

Put your six-word flavor proposal in the comments section below, and you could win Starbucks on us.

We’ll announce the winner next week! Congrats to this week’s BuzzLine winner Nate Cox!
