I’m sure by now most of you will have heard about Ben & Jerry’s new range of non-dairy frozen desserts.
You dared us to go dairyless — and we did! Ben & Jerry’s Non-Dairy flavor creations are made with almond milk & so boldly loaded with chunks & swirls that you’ll get Ben & Jerry’s euphoria in every bite.
Made with almond milk and certified vegan, using new vegan friendly brownies from New York’s Greystone Bakery, and only fairtrade cocoa, sugar, bananas, coffee and vanilla, I am sad to announce that Ben & Jerry’s do not plan to release these frozen desserts in the UK… sob sob sob
“Hello from Ben & Jerry’s
In response to your enquiry, we have no current plans to introduce the Dairy free range of ice creams in the UK. We appreciate this is obvously disappointing news for you but I would advise to check our Ben & Jerry’s website for any updates in future in regards to our range of ice creams.”
Our friends across the Atlantic however, will be able to enjoy these amazing looking frozen desserts:
Chunky Monkey: Banana non-dairy frozen dessert with fudge chunks & walnuts
Chocolate Fudge Brownie: Chocolate non-dairy frozen dessert with fudge brownies
Coffee Caramel Fudge: Coffee non-dairy frozen dessert with fudge chunks & a caramel swirl
P.B. & Cookies: Vanilla non-dairy frozen dessert with chocolate sandwich cookies & crunchy peanut butter swirls
I’m hoping Ben & Jerry’s will change their mind, I had heard rumours of a June release so keep your ears open and I will report back if I hear anything different.
Anyone been lucky enough to try one of these yet? Let me know what you think!
Updated 22 Feb 2016: Bright spark, Benjamin Dunkley, has started a petition at Change.org, imploring Ben & Jerry’s to bring their vegan line of ice creams to the UK. Sign it & let’s make this happen!
