Even though it’s still upwards of 80°F outside, fall is already in the air. And when we say air, we’re mostly referring to supermarket shelves. All of our favorite pumpkin-y products are already popping up around the country, despite the fact that autumn won’t actually arrive for quite a while. The latest product to be added to our list of grocery essentials is actually perfect for transitioning from summer to fall — because it’s ice cream!
That’s right, Ben & Jerry’s confirmed today on its website that the company is officially bringing back its Pumpkin Cheesecake ice cream. In case you haven’t tried it in seasons past, the limited-batch flavor features pumpkin cheesecake ice cream (made with real pumpkin!) and a graham cracker swirl. Yum.
Ben & Jerry’s playfully boasts that the brand has been selling out its Pumpkin Cheesecake flavor for eight years now, since it was first offered in 2007. “The Pumpkin Cheesecake flavor is a perfect comfort food. It’s like a warm blanket on a cool autumn day, with falling leaves and the crisp smell of fall,“ explained Ben & Jerry’s Flavor Guru Eric Fredette in the post.
We reached out to Ben & Jerry’s for an exact release date, and will report back with their response. For now, keep an eye out at your local supermarket and scoop shops, and we’ll update this post as soon as we have more info.
