The Sweetest Cemetery Ever…Really
Ben and Jerry’s Flavor Graveyard
One of the best and worst things about Ben & Jerry’s: they’re always introducing new flavors. But with that comes some rough goodbyes to the retired flavors. Just when you started falling for Bovinity Divinity (milk chocolate ice cream and white chocolate cows swirled with white chocolate ice cream and dark fudge cows—retired in 2001) it’s nowhere to be seen in freezers. Just like that. Gone. Forever. You and your spoon, so alone.
If you ever tour the Ben and Jerry’s factory in Waterbury, Vermont, stroll over to their Flavor Graveyard. It’s an actual graveyard—as in, there are headstones and it’s on a grassy knoll. And if you really wanted to, you could probably leave a bouquet.
So let’s take a moment of silence to remember these late flavors. Will they ever come back? Why must they leave? Ben & Jerry’s Grand Poobah of PR (seriously, his business card says that) Sean Greenwood says probably not. Despite the obsessive cult followings, they just didn’t sell as well. However, some of them might still be available at scoop shops, just not for sale in pints (like Coffee, Coffee, BuzzBuzzBuzz!).
If you can’t make it to Vermont, Ben & Jerry’s also has a virtual graveyard. Not all of the extinct flavors are here, but just scroll down to the bottom and click on “Crypt” for a full list.
