BURLINGTON, Vt. -- Vegans rejoice: Ben & Jerry’s has created vegan varieties from two of its most popular flavors, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough and Chocolate Caramel Cluster. These additions expand Ben & Jerry’s line of nondairy offerings to 11 and comprise a quarter of the company’s full-time flavors.

Pints of the new vegan flavors are available at retailers nationwide for a suggested retail price of about $5. The Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough flavor will also be available at participating Ben & Jerry’s Scoop Shops. The company said there’s a chance it will introduce another nondairy offering this spring.

"Ever since we introduced non-dairy in 2016, our fans have been clamoring for more," said Sarah Fidler, flavor guru for Ben & Jerry’s. "The biggest challenge this time was creating a chocolate chip cookie dough flavor that stood up to the original. I think we nailed it.”

Ben & Jerry’s Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough flavor features vanilla ice cream mixed with chocolate chip cookie dough and fudge flakes. Its Chocolate Caramel Cluster flavor—which was originally made for nondairy consumers, according to the company—combines chocolate ice cream with peanuts, fudge chunks and salted caramel swirls.

Burlington, Vt.-based Ben & Jerry’s, a subsidiary of Rotterdam, Netherlands-based consumer goods company Unilever, makes ice cream, frozen yogurt and sorbet. Its top flavors include Half Baked, Cherry Garcia, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough and Chocolate Chip Brownie. The company supports a variety of social issues, such as racial justice, democracy, GMO labeling, LGBTQ equality and fair trade.
