Summer is nigh, and you know what that means: pitchers of frozen rosé margaritas and indulging on pints of glorious, creamy ice cream. Or maybe that’s just us? Either way, Ben & Jerry’s has introduced two new flavors we can’t wait to dig into. But you can’t pick these flavors up at any ‘ole grocery store; they’re only available at Walmart.
The two new flavors include Red, White & Blueberry and Ice Cream Sammie, and they truly epitomize summertime.
Red, White & Blueberry is a blueberry, raspberry and vanilla ice cream swirl with strawberries and shortbread pieces. Ice Cream Sammie starts with a vanilla ice cream base, swirled with chocolate cookies and sprinkled with chunks of chocolate sandwich cookies.
So far, these flavors sounds like a hit. According to Biggs’s Bites on Instagram, the Ice Cream Sammie is a “very well-executed pint” and a “tasty addition to the lineup.”

The Cold Hard Scoop: Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream Sammie ____________________________________ Ice Cream Sammie is “vanilla ice cream, chocolate sandwich cookies, and chocolate cookie swirls.” BnJ certainly isn’t breaking any ground with this new @walmart exclusive BUT I do love a well-executed cookies ‘n cream pint and this certainly checks that box! Just as in one of their OG greats, Milk and Cookies, mixins are so dense throughout the pint that you never really get a pure scoop of the average vanilla base alone. The exceptional chocolate cookie swirl (one of the best mixins in the BnJ lineup) joins forces with the "just-ok" vanilla base to create what is a pretty strong cookies and cream base. Nearly every single bite of my pint included the delicious chocolatey crunch of the swirl! Really the only difference between this pint and Milk and Cookies is the chocolate sandwich cookie, as opposed to the classic chocolate chip in MnC….BnJ definitely comes through here! Not only are these chunks consistent from top to bottom, but some are absolute MONSTERS!! At the bottom of my pint I even ran into an entire cookie, Graeter’s style!! These chunks also have that great soggy/soft yet slightly crunchy texture that you get when you dip your cookie in milk, and they pack a great flavor that is right on par with that of an authentic Oreo. Though I wish BnJ would’ve been a little more creative with the new release, this is a very well-executed pint….certainly a tasty addition to the lineup! I’d say, depending on your preference (Oreo vs. Chocolate Chip) you may like this one more than the OG Milk and Cookies. If you’re a CnC fan, this is an absolute must-scoop! ____________________________________ RATING: 8.5/10 ____________________________________ #thecoldhardscoop #tampafoodie #nolafoodie #icecream #iifym #flexibledieting #omad #balancednotclean #gainz #cheatday #cheatmeal #flexibledieting #foodbeast #foodie #benandjerrys #icecreamsandwich #oreo #chocolate #cookie #cookiesandcream #foodreview #poweredbyicecream #icecreamlover #goodeats #exclusive #chocolate

While you’re in the ice cream isle, keep an eye out for Ben & Jerry’s new, edible cookie dough bites. They were available in Vermont since last year, but now the three flavors — chocolate chip, peanut butter chocolate chip and vegan chocolate chip — are rolling out nationwide.

The cookie dough obsession doesn’t end there, either. In January, Ben & Jerry’s also released three new cookie dough core ice cream flavors, including Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Core, Sweet Like Sugar Cookie Dough Core and Wake & “No Bake” Cookie Dough Core, which combines vanilla ice cream with peanut butter cookies and peanut butter ice cream.

If you see someone strolling down the frozen aisle in Walmart with a cart full of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream, that may or may not be us.
