Ben & Jerry's Cookie Dough Chunks Are Now a Thing—Finally
How many times have you gone digging through an entire pint of cream just to uncover and completely devour all the irresistible chunks of cookie dough? You're not alone.
Apparently, Ben & Jerry's has been hearing our plea because the iconic brand is rolling out new Cookie Dough Chunks, which officially launched on April 3 and are now available in participating grocery stores nationwide.
The Vermont-based company was ahead of the curve when it first started putting cookie dough into ice cream back in 1984, but now in 2019, as Ben & Jerry's puts it, they've finally "freed the chunks."
The cookie dough comes in two flavors—Chocolate Chip and Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip, but there's a vegan version, too—and they're sold in half-pound bags for $4.99 each.
The best part? You don't need a spoon, and the cookie dough chunks are completely safe to eat raw because they contain pasteurized eggs and heat-treated flour.
"Fans have been asking for 'just the chunks' for a while now," said Ben & Jerry's innovation manager Jody Eley in a press release. "During a short market test in Vermont last summer, bags flew off the shelves in mere days and stores could not keep the delicious dough bites in stock!"
Ben & Jerry's is also treating customers to a free ice cream on Free Cone Day, arriving on Tuesday, April 9. You can find participating locations here.
