Ben & Jerry's Launches Two New Vegan Flavors

Dairy-free Cherry Garcia and Coconut Seven Layer Bar added to expand the ice cream company's vegan line to six flavors.

Ice cream company Ben & Jerry’s just launched two new vegan flavors. Spotted by Instagrammer @PhillyVeganMonster, the new options are Cherry Garcia (featuring cherries and fudge flakes) and Coconut Seven Layer Bar (which is dotted with fudge chunks, walnuts, and swirls of caramel and graham crackers). These offerings are an expansion of the company's existing line—comprised of vegan PB & Cookies, Coffee Caramel Fudge, Chunky Monkey, and Chocolate Fudge Brownie flavors. The company first announced that it would offer vegan almond milk-based options in June 2015, and officially launched the line in grocery stores and scoop shops nationwide in February 2016. Ben & Jerry’s commitment to developing vegan options is a profitable move as the dairy alternative market—and consumer demand for dairy-free ice cream—continues to grow.

February 15, 2017 UPDATE: Ben & Jerry's debuted a third flavor.
