Ben & Jerry’s is going vegan for the first time


ben_jerry_vegan1Need we say more? The beloved ice cream is launching its first dairy-free line on shelves and in scoop shops later this month—much to the delight of sick-of-sorbet vegans everywhere, Refinery29 reports.

The four new “everything but the cow” flavors include vegan versions of some of your favorite classics (Chunky Monkey, Chocolate Fudge Brownie, and P.B. & Cookies), plus a new flavor (Coffee Caramel Fudge), and are all made with an almond milk base in place of cow’s milk.

ben_jerry_veganBen & Jerry’s says it partnered with Vegan Action to certify that the non-dairy flavors don’t include any animal products—so no eggs, dairy, or honey. Plus, the brand says you’re getting fair trade-certified and non-GMO ingredients in every scoop. (If, however, it’s sugar that you’ve cut out, you’ll have to stick with your nice cream for now—the vegan pints have a similar sweet nutritional listing to the dairy-filled OGs.)

But is the lactose-less stuff actually good? According to one Refinery29 writer (who admittedly was excited to have an ice cream snack in the middle of the day): yes. So whether you’re vegan, temporarily ditching dairy, or just really love Chunky Monkey in its many forms, there’s a new dessert in town. —Alison Feller
