|BURLINGTON, Vt., June 28, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — July is National Ice Cream Month, that much-anticipated time of year when Ben & Jerry’s unveils the list of its top ten fan-favorite flavors. Ice cream lovers across the country anxiously await this announcement to see if their favorite pint has made the list, or moved up or down the ranking.
This year’s top-selling flavor, Half Baked, is a familiar favorite: it has held the #1 spot for five years running. Maybe that’s because it contains cookie dough; Ben & Jerry’s fans can’t seem to get enough of the gooey deliciousness of pre-baked pastries.
“Our co-founders were the dough-riginators,” said Ben & Jerry’s Flavor Guru Eric Fredette. “Way back in 1984, Ben & Jerry’s took a fan suggestion and were the first to drop big chunks of chocolate chip cookie dough into a batch of creamy vanilla. The rest is ice cream history.”
Other flavors on the 2018 list are new to the ranking, while one classic (New York Super Fudge Chunk) made a reappearance.
