Dessert lovers, here’s a doubly sweet treat for you! Ben & Jerry’s recently launched two new ice cream flavours, Chewy Gooey Cookie and Dublin Mudslide, which are packed full of indulgent, creamy goodness.
On top of that, to celebrate the launch, Ben & Jerry’s also partnered with local bakery, Sourbombe Artisanal Bakery, to create three inspired sourbombe donuts that are only available for a limited period of time.
Ice Cream Flavours
The first flavour, Chewy Gooey Cookie, features a rich coconut ice cream base swirled with melty fudge flakes, shortbread cookie chunks and caramel. While the refreshing coconut flavour takes centre stage, the additional elements mentioned above add some texture to each bite.
The other new flavour, Dublin Mudslide, may satisfy alcohol lovers with its inclusion of Irish Cream. Apart from the cream liquer, the ice cream contains double chocolate chip cookies and coffee fudge. Perfect for movie nights!
At the media preview, the team from Ben & Jerry’s shared that the ice creams were developed out of their “flavour junkyard” (old flavours that were customers’ favourites). Dublin Mudslide was created as a revamped version of the original Mudslide, now featuring whey Irish liqueur.
Ben & Jerry’s x Sourbombe Collab (Set of 3)
Three exciting donuts were created by Ben & Jerry’s and Sourbombe Artisanal Bakery to complement the two new ice cream flavours. Genevieve, the founder of Sourbombe Artisanall Bakery, shared that the partnership was extremely exciting as both brands share a love for innovation.
The Brûlée Hooray donut was developed in the spirit of Ben & Jerry’s fun flavours. Apart from a classic stuffing of whipped vanilla bean custard, the donut is topped off with crystal candied caramel.
The caramel topping is created by hand-dipping half of the donut carefully into boiling hot caramel, before letting it cool. The finished product resembles that of the top layer of crème brûlée as it is hard and crunchy.
Due to the strict curation of Tahitian vanilla pods for the filling, the custard tastes fragrant and deliciously creamy.
Inspired by the Chewy Gooey Cookie ice cream flavour, this donut is filled with a chocolatey mousse and topped with coconut caramel glaze, a sprinkle of sea salt flakes and buttery shortbread cookies.
According to Genevieve (the founder of Sourbombe Artisanal Bakery), the shortbread topping is the signature finishing touch to most of their donuts and staff are held to strict standards when piping and adding the cookies!
Inspired by Dublin Mudslide, this donut is a little boozy treat that’s oozing with flavour. The filling is rich and creamy, with hints of coffee-kahlua. With a dark chocolate glaze and sprinklings of hazelnut to finish, alcohol and chocolate lovers alike would love this!
