It’s time to head to your nearest freezer aisle because some very special ice cream flavors are coming your way in 2017. Brace yourselves because they almost sound too good to be true.
Thanks to a photo snapped by The Impulsive Buy Twitter account, we now know of a magical frozen treat that apparently exists: Twinkies ice cream. How has this not existed sooner, you may be asking, and just know that we’re with you on that one.

But, as the Twitter post suggests, these pints may have hit some locations a little early. So far they’ve only been spotted at a grocery store in Ohio! There are reportedly three Hostess flavors to come in addition to a classic favorite, Twinkies. Also expect: SnoBalls, CupCakes and DingDongs. So, no matter what kind of Hostess treat you’re into—there’s an ice cream for you!
The good news is that a Nestle spokesperson confirmed that the treats would be available for a limited time at Dollar General and in certain other convenience stores. You can expect to find this goodness in select stores from February through May in 2017!

And the good news doesn’t stop there! Ben & Jerry’s also has some incredible new flavor combos rolling out this year. According to their website, Truffle Kerfuffle, Urban Bourbon and Oat of this Swirled will be coming to stores this spring.
Typical to the Ben & Jerry’s brand, those names are fun, but not necessarily super telling of what the ice cream will taste like. So, let’s get into the full breakdown, shall we? Oh yeah.
Truffle Kerfuffle, as the website points out, is vanilla ice cream that’s loaded with toasted pecans, fudge chips and a salted chocolate ganache swirl. Can you say “yum?!”
Urban Bourbon is caramel ice cream with almonds, fudge flakes and bourbon caramel swirls incorporated throughout. Mmm. Mmm. Mmm.
And last, but certainly not least, there’s Oat of this Swirled. It’s brown sugar ice cream with fudge and chunks of oatmeal cinnamon cookies. I always did like my cookies and ice cream combined!
So, if this news doesn’t have you in your car and on the way to find your nearest Hostess-ice cream selling store, then I don’t know what will. Then, come springtime, there’s even more deliciousness from Ben & Jerry’s to look forward to!
