ICE CREAM lovers have mourned the loss of their favorites after Ben & Jerry’s canceled their fine pints.
Oftentimes, big brands discontinue products that either sell little or are too expensive to produce.
Nevertheless, the fans are disappointed.
Below we have summarized four types of ice cream that many are still missing.
For those missing their favorites, each one can be found in its “flavor graveyard” where Ben & Jerry’s buried them.
“We can mourn their chunks and swirls and keep their sweet memories alive,” the ice cream giant said on its website.
1. CREAM BRULEE
This ice cream flavor was introduced to the masses back in 2007 and quickly became a favorite for many.
Crème Brulee was a sweet custard ice cream with a caramelized sugar swirl.
Although it was discontinued in 2012, fans are reeling from the loss.
One ice cream eater tweeted: “My absolute favorite from Ben and Jerry was Creme Brulee. They discontinued it a few years ago, I keep wishing they bring it back.”
2. WAVY SAUCE
The Wavy Gravy flavor was introduced way back in 1993 and lasted until its demise in 2001.
Each pint was wrapped with caramel and cashew Brazil nut ice cream and filled with a chocolate hazelnut fudge swirl and toasted almonds.
The company teased on its “headstone” that it might eventually return.
“Just so there’s no confusion. We thought we should warn you: Wavy Gravy isn’t dead — he lives in California,” the stone said.
“Not lucky for Wavy’s liking, but we’ve been wrong before, we won’t give up if you don’t. So what are you waiting for?
3. SCHWEDDY BALLS
This one was born from the classic SNL sketch starring Ana Gasteyer, Molly Shannon and Alec Baldwin.
In the sketch, the actors pretended to be “NPR’s Delicious Dish” and discussed Alex Baldwin’s character’s holiday dessert.
Schweddy Balls featured vanilla ice cream with rum, fudge-covered rum, and malt balls.
The flavor was part of the 2011 Holiday Season Limited Charge.
4. FOSSIL FUEL
From 2005 to 2010, the Fossil Fuel flavor was a favorite for many fans.
It was made out of sweet ice cream and had chocolate chip cookie pieces, fudge dinosaurs and a fudge swirl.
For the Anthropologie enthusiasts, they got to “dig” for their fudgy dinosaurs while enjoying the sweet cream.
His tombstone read: “Stuffy dinosaurs galore. All dug up until there were none left. A taste redesign might be doable. But fossil fuel is not renewable.”
Fans are also mourning the loss of an iconic burger chain that will close over 300 stores.
Meanwhile, Pizza Hut has added two new menu items and fans are giving mixed reviews.
