As obesity rates remain a huge concern on the American healthcare front, one ice cream company throws all caution and fat content to the wind.
Iconic ice cream brand, Ben and Jerry’s, just introduced their “core” line of frozen treats. The concept is basically a sundae in a pint container and comes in four different flavors; Hazed and Confused, That’s My Jam, Peanut Butter Fudge and Salted Caramel.
The new flavors come as two types of ice cream in one container with a column of either fudge, jam, peanut butter or caramel in the center, respectively.
According to the Los Angeles Times, these are the first line of frozen dairy products from Ben and Jerry’s to be 100% fair trade certified and made with non-GMO sourced ingredients.
Their Facebook page maintains that they use “Fresh & Extraordinary dairy: wholly cow-created milk & cream from our farmer friends who have promised not to treat their herds with bioengineered growth hormones. All natural flavorings, exceptional extracts & amazing purees.”
We’re guessing the company thinks that all this PC-fair-trade-hormone-free talk makes up for the padding these desserts will add to our waistlines.
It’s anyone’s guess as to just how much we’ll be gaining, as fans have already expressed thorough interest on the Ben and Jerry’s Facebook page, with memes that joke “Shut up and take my money!” to the comments describing an inevitable food coma — “I’ll be hazed and confused after I finish all four jars in one sitting” — to those who just can’t wait: “Leaving for the store……..get out of my way.”
At $4.39 a pint, the new flavors are available nationwide, and while we’ll continue to grumble over calorie content, we’re sure they’re delicious.
