Pumpkin season is here. And that means that we’ll be seeing plenty of pumpkin-flavored sips and treats on shelves and menus again! We’re pretty sure that you’ve already sipped on your first pumpkin spice latte this year. But that’s not the only thing that’s making a comeback this season. Ben & Jerry’s Pumpkin Cheesecake Ice Cream is officially back in the freezer aisle too! This flavor has consistently appeared in the supermarket freezers since 2007, and this year is no different.
Ben & Jerry’s ice creams are enjoyed by 34 countries. However, the pumpkin cheesecake flavor is exclusively available in the United States only. (After all, no other country makes such a big deal about pumpkins during fall like the US does!) There are literally thousands of ice cream flavors available to us at any given time. However, we think that we can all agree that the pumpkin cheesecake ice cream is definitely one that’s well on its way to becoming an autumnal must-have! The brand clearly feels this way as well, as the flavor’s developer, Eric Fredette said,
“The Pumpkin Cheesecake flavor is a perfect comfort food. It’s like a warm blanket on a cool autumn day, with falling leaves and the crisp smell of fall.”
Ben & Jerry’s Pumpkin Cheesecake Ice Cream is back to make fall sweet
As per its description, this limited batch consists of pumpkin cheesecake-flavored ice cream with a graham cracker swirl. The flavor we’re all falling for this season is created by whirling up real pumpkins with the brand’s delicious homemade cheesecake ice cream. Then, they generously add graham cracker swirls to give you an interesting texture. These two components come together to give you a pie-tastic moment that just might have you exclaiming, “Oh my gourd!”. When you really think about it, this treat is basically like having two desserts in one frosty, creamy spoonful! So it’s no wonder that the pumpkin cheesecake flavor has been a regular limited batch offering since 2007. It’s just so good!
And while the flavor may be seasonal, Ben & Jerry’s commitment to ethically manufacturing ice cream isn’t. All of their ice cream is made with non-GMO sourced ingredients, eggs sourced from cage-free farms and milk from their Caring Dairy program. They also use Fairtrade cocoa, sugar and vanilla. Ben & Jerry’s has even gone as far as to make their packaging environmentally friendly by using responsibly sourced materials.
The Pumpkin Cheesecake Ice Cream flavor is a limited batch
Since the pumpkin cheesecake ice cream is a seasonal offering, you can expect that it will only be around for a while. So if you haven’t tasted this exceptionally delicious flavor yet, you’ve got to get your hands on this 16oz of autumnal deliciousness right away! Instagram sweets and snack blogger @candyhunting has already spotted the limited batch at their local Target’s endcap section. And aside from Target, you’ll most likely spot this gloriously pumpkin-y and cheesecake-y ice cream treat at Walmart.
