Ben & Jerry's Is Bringing Back This Beloved Discontinued Ice Cream
As any ice cream enthusiast knows, Vermont-based Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream is somewhat infamous for sending flavors to the flavor graveyard. Currently, there are over thirty flavors resting in the brand's flavor graveyard, both online and at the ice cream makers facility in Burlington. However, sometimes flavors come back, and on March 17, St. Patrick's Day, Ben & Jerry's is bringing back the beloved Dublin Mudslide.
You may remember the flavor, but if you didn't get a chance to try it before it was discontinued in 2007, it's exactly what you want to eat while celebrating St. Patrick's Day: Irish cream ice cream with chocolate chocolate chip cookies and coffee fudge swirls. Honestly, it sounds far preferable to traditional corned beef and cabbage. (Plus, don't miss We Tasted 10 Vanilla Ice Creams & This Is the Best One!)
The new and improved Dublin Mudslide
The original Dublin Mudslide was introduced as one of the brand's limited-edition flavors back in 2004. It soon became a fan favorite and full-time flavor. However, just three short years later the flavor was retired. Fortunately for literally everyone who likes things that are good, it's back!
The ice cream maker shared that this version of Dublin Mudslide includes just a hint of a new, award-winning spirit made from whey, the nutrient-rich liquid left from making cheese. Called Wheyward Spirit, the company's focus on environmental sustainability and local dairy farms makes it an obvious addition to this sweet, boozy flavor.
But Dublin Mudslide is not the first flavor the brand has resurrected from the famous flavor graveyard.
This smooth coffee liqueur ice cream was an early flavor for the brand, launching in 1983. Sent to the flavor graveyard in 1997, the favorite flavor returned in shops and pints in 2013.
Launched as a limited-edition flavor in 2018, this toasted marshmallow flavor ice cream, packed with chocolate cookies, graham cracker swirls, and fudge flakes, ended up being brought out of retirement quickly. You can find this delicious flavor in stores and shops today.
Another limited batch experiment, this mascarpone ice cream is speckled with fudge-covered pastry shell pieces, and even more mascarpone swirls. Brought back from the flavor graveyard about two years ago, this flavor is available for hungry ice cream lovers at shops and retail stores.
