Ben & Jerry’s is putting a new spin on its collection of non-dairy frozen desserts.

The Burlington, Vt.-based company is adding a base of sunflower butter to several of its products, which will be promoted in a bright yellow lid and packaging that adorned with summer flowers.

Three new sunflower butter non-dairy additions to the lineup include:

  • Milk & Cookies, which is a vanilla non-dairy frozen dessert, and contains chocolate chip cookies, chocolate sandwich cookies and chocolate swirls;
  • Crème Brûlée Cookie, which consists of a burnt caramel non-dairy frozen dessert, has brown sugar cookies and salted caramel swirls; and
  • Mint Chocolate Cookie, which is a mint non-dairy frozen dessert with 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," CEO Matthew McCarthy said. "I am over-the-moon excited that our Flavor Gurus have churned out something funky and chunky that is nothing short of spectacular."

In addition, Ben & Jerry’s also is launching two almond based non-dairy mini cups. The available flavors include:

  • P.B. & Cookies, which is a vanilla non-frozen dessert with chocolate cookies and peanut butter; and
  • Caramel Chocolate Chunk, which consists of a caramel non-dairy frozen dessert that has fudge chips and a salted caramel swirl.

Consumers can begin to find the sunflower butter flavors on grocery shelves across the nation and Scoop Shops for the suggested retail price of $4.48 to $5.99. The almond based mini cups will hit stores in spring.
