The duo who gave us ice creams named Cherry Garcia, Chunky Monkey, and Phish Food recently rolled out pints of their new Core line. Ben & Jerry’s is making pints that contain two ice creams, one on each side of a “core” or column of fudge, caramel, or raspberry jam. Each carton ($4.99) is like a sundae, and flavors include Hazed & Confused (chocolate and hazelnut ice creams with fudge chips and a hazelnut fudge core, pictured) and That’s My Jam (chocolate and raspberry ice creams with fudge chips, and a core strip of thick raspberry jam). Eric Fredette, one of the company’s flavor gurus, says the cores are pumped in with a sausage machine. “You can customize each spoonful,” says Fredette. “Everyone has their own way of attacking a pint.” Available at supermarkets.
