Ben & Jerry’s, the ice cream geniuses from Vermont who’ve given the world creative flavors like Netflix and Chill’d, have decided to kick off 2021 in a big way. Instead of simply introducing one new flavor to its amazing lineup, Ben & Jerry’s decided to release seven new varieties at once. Talk about a lucky number!
On Jan. 28, Ben & Jerry’s shared the big announcement about its new Topped lineup: a pint of decadent ice cream that’s loaded with fillings and topped with a thick, chocolate ganache. Take a look at one of the Topped options, Salted Caramel Brownie, shared by the company on Twitter, below.

Think of it as a sundae in a pint. You don’t need to worry about scooping the ice cream, adding your favorite mix-ins or coating the top in chocolate. It’s all right there in the pint!
To get the scoop on when and where you can pick up the new flavors, simply head over to Ben & Jerry’s Topped ice cream page and get on the mailing list for release dates and locations. Here’s a look at each of the new flavors in the Topped line.
Chocolate Caramel Cookie Dough
Open the lid of this perfect pint and you’ll find Ben & Jerry’s chocolate ice cream with caramel swirls, chunks of chocolate chip cookie dough and chocolate-covered caramel cups, all topped with the signature chocolate ganache layer.
PB Over The Top
Peanut butter lovers, beware. This option might send you into a blissful overdose. It’s chocolate ice cream with swirls of peanut butter and peanut butter cups. Then, on top, there are more peanut butter cups mixed into the chocolate ganache.
Salted Caramel Brownie
Can’t decide between ice cream and brownies for dessert? Don’t worry, this pint has all you need. It’s vanilla ice cream with salted caramel swirls, along with fudge brownies. Then, it’s all covered with a thick layer of chocolate ganache mixed with chocolate-covered caramel cups.
Strawberry Topped Tart
This is something completely different and we love the idea! It’s sweet cream ice cream with strawberry swirls and pie crust pieces. This flavor, though, has a white chocolate ganache and sprinkles on top for a smooth, sweet touch that separates it from most of the others.
You’ve probably heard of Thin Mint Girl Scout cookies. This ice cream is called Thick Mint and with good reason, as it blends mint ice cream with chocolate cookie swirls and mint chocolate cookie balls. And if that’s not enough, there are chocolate cookies mixed in with the chocolate ganache layer on top.
You may never need to make Tiramisu again if you’re craving a taste of that layered, Italian dessert. Ben & Jerry’s takes Mascarpone ice cream and adds fudge swirls and shortbread pieces. Then, to give it the signature coffee flavor, espresso fudge chunks are added into the chocolate ganache layer.
For something a little more sophisticated and adult, how about trying the Topped Whiskey Biz. It is brown butter bourbon ice cream with blonde brownies and WhistlePig whiskey caramel swirls. To complete your top-shelf dessert or snack, it’s topped with white chocolate ganache and white fudge chunks.
