The following is a press release from Ben & Jerry’s:

Whether you’re a true Phish fan or not, you’ve tried Ben & Jerry’s classic flavor, Phish Food. Ben & Jerry’s has partnered with Phish for a third flavor to celebrate the 21st anniversary of The WaterWheel Foundation! It’s Ice… Cream features a caramel malt ice cream with almond toffee pieces, fudge fish and a caramel swirl and was one of the original flavor concepts in the running, back in 1997, to become Phish Food. Luckily, Ben & Jerry’s Flavor Gurus never lose sight of a good flavor concept and have brought it to pints. A portion of all proceeds will benefit The WaterWheel Foundation.

Phish artist Jim Pollock designed an exclusive poster for It’s Ice…Cream. Available at store.benjerry.com.

To celebrate It’s Ice…Cream, named after the 1991 Phish song “It’s Ice”, Ben & Jerry’s has created a one-of-a-kind pack featuring exclusive artwork by renowned Phish poster artist, Jim Pollock. But the artwork doesn’t stop with the Ben & Jerry’s pint. Ben & Jerry’s will be offering a merchandise gift pack available in limited quantities through store.benjerry.com, which includes a special poster design by Pollock. All proceeds of merchandise sales will directly benefit The WaterWheel Foundation.

Phish drummer Jon Fishman notes “For over twenty years, Phish has enjoyed a great partnership with Ben & Jerry’s and we’re excited that this new creative flavor can continue to support the work of The WaterWheel Foundation.”

It’s Ice… Cream is a part of Ben & Jerry’s uber-limited line known as Special Stash, which can be purchased exclusively at Ben & Jerry’s Scoop Shops, store.benjerry.com, and select retailers.

About The WaterWheel Foundation:
The WaterWheel Foundation was created by Phish in 1997 to oversee the band’s various charitable activities.  These include Phish Food’s support of a clean Lake Champlain and it’s surrounding basin, relief funds created post-natural disaster eras for both the state of Vermont and the island of Tortola, and a cancer research fund as well as supporting a large sphere of needs including social services, primarily those benefitting women and children; environmental, with a focus on clean water and land conservation with public access; as well as food banks, urban gardening and arts education.

Our primary effort then and now is our Touring Division, though in keeping with our “Local” mission we also support Vermont-based non-profits and others in need. From its debut the mission of WaterWheel’s Touring Division has been to raise funds for pre-selected non-profits in each community that Phish visits while on tour. In essence, WaterWheel is the Phish community coming together to share in positive ways with the local communities the fans all visit on tour stops. The net proceeds raised at each show – fan donations plus the sale of WaterWheel logo merchandise and items autographed by the band – are donated to the organization tabling at the show, after deducting overhead costs. Thanks to the generosity of the fans and the band, since its creation WaterWheel has donated over $4,000,000 to organization across the country.

Ben & Jerry’s launches Moo-phoria line of ice cream with less fat and calories

February 7, 2018

The following is a press release from Ben & Jerry’s:

For ice cream lovers who only indulge on special occasions or limit themselves to a weekly treat, Ben & Jerry’s has created Moo-phoria™, a new line of light ice cream with satisfyingly euphoric flavors. Suddenly, Wednesday is the new weekend!

Moo-phoria pints are full of all the wonderful chunks and swirls that fans adore, along with rich and creamy vanilla, chocolate, caramel and peanut butter flavors. What’s missing? Sixty to seventy percent fat and at least 35% of the calories found in traditional ice cream. Each ½ cup serving of Moo-phoria has 140-160 calories. And like all Ben & Jerry’s flavors, Moo-phoria doesn’t have artificial sugar substitutes or sugar alcohols.

“Ben & Jerry’s tries to offer a little bit of something for everyone,” said Dena Wimette, Senior Innovation Manager. “We’re excited to have an incredible new option for our fans who say they can’t be trusted with a pint of Ben & Jerry’s in their freezers.”

Moo-phoria pints are available in three hard-to-resist flavors:

  • Chocolate Milk & Cookies—Chocolate and vanilla light ice cream swirled with chocolate chip cookies. 140 calories per ½ cup serving.
  • Caramel Cookie Fix—Vanilla light ice cream with shortbread cookies and salted caramel swirl. 150 calories per ½ cup serving.
  • PB Dough—Chocolate light ice cream with gobs of chocolate chip peanut butter cookie dough. 160 calories per ½ cup serving.

In addition to the famous chunks and swirls, Ben & Jerry’s sources organic milk and cream for the base mix of each Moo-phoria flavor.

Moo-phoria is coming soon to grocery stores nationwide for a suggested MSRP of $4.89. Fans can use the Ben & Jerry’s flavor locator to find a store or Scoop Shop near them. Moo-phoria will also be available at Ben & Jerry’s online store at www.store.benjerry.com.

The following is a press release from Ben & Jerry’s:

Launching a new line of ice cream flavors in mid-January might seem counter-intuitive, but the Flavor Gurus at Ben & Jerry’s have always played by their own, creative rules. This year the ice cream company is dishing up an innovative line of truffle-inspired indulgence (one with a cold brew coffee base!), two more flavors of Non-Dairy deliciousness, and new takes on enjoying long-standing fan favorite flavors in Pint Slices.

“We wanted to bring the WOW factor to our fans for 2018,” said Craig Koskiniemi who helped create the dynamic lineup, from Pint Slice flavors to the truffle-laden lineup additions. “As a foodie at home AND at work, I’m inspired to come up with creative new combinations like a cold brew coffee-based Ben & Jerry’s flavor. These are guaranteed to keep the love of ice cream strong,” added the Flavor Guru.

Ben & Jerry’s builds on its newest novelty innovation, Pint Slices, a portable, on-the-go ice cream bar with all the chunks and swirls of its pint lineup. The ice cream maker is unveiling more fan-favorite flavors in this fantastically fun format.

Cherry Garcia—This legend-dairy lineup leader has been one of the most-requested flavors for Pint Slices. Fans don’t have to wait any longer. Cherry ice cream bars with cherries & fudge flakes, covered in a dark chocolatey coating.

Tonight Dough—Jimmy Fallon’s beloved flavor was one of our most successful launches in pints. Now you can get your hands on it as a Pint Slice. Caramel ice cream bars with chocolate cookie swirls & gobs of peanut butter chocolate chip cookie dough covered in a dark chocolatey coating. If that’s not euphoric enough for you, Jimmy is also donating all his proceeds to the SeriousFun Children’s Network.

Coffee, Coffee BuzzBuzzBuzz—A fan favorite that packs a caffeine pick-me-up. Coffee ice cream bars with espresso bean fudge chunks covered in a dark chocolatey coating with cocoa nibs.

To celebrate the launch of the newest Pint Slice flavors, Ben & Jerry’s will go west to amp up the euphoria for fans in Los Angeles with a special pop-up Pint Slice carnival and ride experience. From 11 am – 8 pm today, fans can get in on the fun at the corner of Hollywood and Vine for a special street carnival complete with Pint Slice inspired games, photo booth, and an oversized Pint Slice swing.
