Ben & Jerry's fans who have long lamented the loss of Oatmeal Cookie Chunk have a new reason in the to celebrate as the Vermont-based dessert maker has unveiled its newest flavor: Oatmeal Dream Pie. The concoction is an oatmeal crème pie non-dairy frozen dessert with gluten-free oatmeal cookies - by Partake, the allergy-friendly food company - and marshmallow swirls. The certified vegan dessert is available nationwide.
"Foodie fans can rejoice this new version of our nostalgic offering," said Flavor Guru, Chris Rivard, who helped to shepherd the project with Partake. "We're thrilled to partner with high-end suppliers who provide the incredible chunks and swirls fans expect from Ben & Jerry's, and this flavor truly delivers," added Rivard.
Ben & Jerry's underlined the importance of supporting Black-owned businesses and women-owned businesses like Partake as part of its ongoing work to address racial justice in the U.S.
"The chance to work with Ben & Jerry's is an Oatmeal Dream come true," said Denise Woodard, the founder and CEO of Partake. "As fellow champions of inclusivity and good food doing good, Ben & Jerry's has long been on at the top of our list to partner. We are thrilled to join them in freezers across America by providing our one-of-a-kind oatmeal cookies.”
The flavor is a full-time addition to Ben & Jerry's Non-Dairy offerings at an MSRP of $5.99 - $6.49.
