Ben & Jerry's Just Resurrected a Flavor from Its Ice Cream Graveyard
After 18 years, the chocolatey flavor is hitting stores again—this time with a boozy twist.
Ben & Jerry's famously maintains a Flavor Graveyard—with actual tombstones!—that honors discontinued ice cream flavors. Some stay there forever. Others get another chance and are, as the company puts it, "rein-cone-nated." Get it? Anyway, the ice cream maker announced Thursday that it's officially bringing a once-beloved flavor back from the dead: Dublin Mudslide.
The flavor features Irish cream ice cream with chocolate chocolate chip cookies and coffee fudge swirls. In its new, resurrected form, Dublin Mudslide is made with a new, first-of-its-kind spirit that's made from whey and has been heralded as a cross between vodka and sake, according to a press release. Ben & Jerry's is sourcing the unique liquor from a company called Wheyward Spirit.
"Aside from being uniquely delicious, using excess whey as the base for our spirit helps us prevent food waste and creates a more sustainable model of spirit production," Emily Darchuk, founder and CEO of Wheyward Spirit, said in a statement. "I am thrilled to partner with Ben & Jerry’s to bring back a fan favorite with the same taste and less waste, using our signature spirit."
The OG Dublin Smash was introduced to fans 18 years ago, back in 2004. Although the flavor quickly became a favorite, it was yanked off of shelves in 2007. The reinvented flavor is popping up on grocery shelves nationwide right now and is priced starting at $5.19.
The Russia Ukraine conflict has been nothing short of horrifying, and therefore has produced quite a number of harrowing videos. The resolve and bravery of the Ukrainian people has been incredible, and they have most certainly shot up the rankings of the nations with the biggest balls.
In this incredible video, we see normal Ukrainian civilians driving over a bridge loaded with anti tank mines, as they line up their cars, and drive over them like they're some slightly larger than average rocks, or potholes or something. It's a good thing they don't have too many low riders over there.
Perhaps the craziest part of this video however, is the fact that the person filming has no issue standing, watching, and directing the drivers while mere feet from the mines. He must have some real trust in the drivers, especially considering that the weight of all their balls might just set the mines off on their own.
