Ice cream brand Ben & Jerry’s just launched its 17th vegan ice cream flavor: Karamel Sutra. The new flavor is the brand’s first non-dairy addition to its Core line of flavors which all feature a gooey caramel core. The vegan version of Karamel Sutra is made with almond milk and features a split base of chocolate ice cream on one side and caramel ice cream on the other dotted with fudge chips and surrounding a soft caramel core. The new non-dairy Karamel Sutra flavor is starting to hit store shelves now where it will retail between $4.39 and $5.99 per pint.

Ben & Jerry’s vegan classics

In 2016, Ben & Jerry’s created its first four almond milk-based flavors: PB & Cookies, Coffee Caramel Fudge, Chocolate Fudge Brownie, and Chunky Monkey. Since then, the brand has developed a variety of vegan offerings from dairy-free versions of classic flavors such as Cherry Garcia, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Cinnamon Buns, and, most recently, Phish Food (made with gelatin-free marshmallow swirls). In addition to almond milk, the company developed a sunflower butter base for the launch of “Milk” & Cookies, Crème Brûlée Cookie, and Mint Chocolate Cookie vegan flavors in January 2020. 

Ben & Jerry’s also used its innovative sunflower butter base to create its new Change the Whirled flavor, developed in partnership with vegan racial justice activist Colin Kaepernick, donating a portion of the vegan flavor’s sales to Know Your Rights Camp—an organization Kaepernick founded to help empower Black and Brown communities.
