Ben & Jerry’s new flavors sweet to the core

Ice cream fans can rejoice in the new flavors from Ben & Jerry’s that have a “core” flavor – either fudge, salty caramel or raspberry jam – in the center of the pint.

The new flavors, based on its Karamel Sutra, were created by the flavor gurus at the company headquarters in South Burllington, Vt. “We wanted to blow out the concept of fun flavors, chunks and swirls and take it over the top,” said Eric Fredette, lead flavor developer.

The four new flavors are:

* Hazed & Confused: Chocolate and hazelnut ice creams with fudge chips and a hazelnut fudge core.

* That’s My Jam: Raspberry and chocolate ice creams with fudge chips and a raspberry core.

* Peanut Butter Fudge: Chocolate and peanut butter ice creams with mini-peanut butter cups and a peanut butter fudge core.

* Salted Caramel: Sweet cream ice cream with blonde brownies and a salty caramel core.

The new flavors are designed to let each person eat the ice cream the way they want, either all of the flavors together or each flavor individually.

The company also said the new flavors are the first to be fair trade certified and made without genetically modified ingredients.
