BURLINGTON, VT. — A sunflower seed butter base is the star of three new Ben & Jerry’s non-dairy frozen dessert pints. The Unilever subsidiary is the first national brand to offer sunflower butter pints to the public, according to the company.
Varieties include “Milk” & Cookies, featuring a vanilla non-dairy frozen dessert with chocolate chip cookies, chocolate sandwich cookies and chocolate cookie swirls; Crème Brulee Cookie, with burnt caramel frozen dessert, brown sugar cookies and salted caramel swirls; and Mint Chocolate Cookie with mint frozen dessert and chocolate sandwich cookies.
“Plant-based eating is one of the biggest trends in the world, and ice cream lovers everywhere have shouted for non-dairy/vegan options that rise to the levels of Ben & Jerry’s euphoric awesomeness,” said Matthew McCarthy, chief executive officer of Ben & Jerry’s.
Ben & Jerry’s sunflower butter pints join the brand’s 12 other non-dairy frozen desserts, which feature an almond milk base.
