Here’s some good news for dairy-eschewing people who want to participate in the cultural ritual of knocking back a pint of ice cream: Ben & Jerry’s is officially releasing a line of non-dairy ice cream for the first time. According to Refinery29, the ice creams—which are vegan certified—will hit store shelves and scoop shops in mid-to-late February.
The non-dairy ice creams, which have been in development since this past summer, are made with an almond-milk base because it provides “the most neutral canvas.” The company allegedly went through 60 different bases before settling on the almond milk. The line comes in four flavors, one of which is the perennial dairy favorite Chunky Monkey. The other three pints are Chocolate Fudge Brownie, Coffee Caramel Fudge, and P.B. & Cookies.
So are the non-dairy pints good enough to cure heartbreak? Per Refinery29, the answer to that is yes. Apparently the ice cream “truly tasted like regular old Ben & Jerry’s,” which should make the lactose-intolerant crowd quite happy.
In addition to the vegan ice creams, there are a number of new products to come out of the Ben & Jerry’s kitchen over the past year. In late January, co-founder Ben Cohen whipped up 40 pints of a Bernie Sanders-inspired flavor called Bernie’s Yearning, 25 of which he donated to the campaign. The very limited-edition flavor features a “thick disk of solid chocolate” covering a plain mint ice cream. And last April, the ice cream company teamed up with New Belgium Brewing to create a Salted Caramel Brownie Brown Ale beer.
