Ben & Jerry’s unveils incredibly tempting AmazeMint and Candy Bar Pie Pint Slices
Burlington, VT, January 8, 2019 –One week into the new year, Ben & Jerry’s has released two euphorically indulgent Pint Slices flavors that will tempt even the most resolute. AmazeMint features cool mint cookie balls covered in dark chocolate, and cookie crumbs. Candy Bar Pie was resurrected from the Flavor Graveyard and has the sweet-savory mix of fudge flakes, peanut butter, and salty pretzels.
Pint Slices have all of Ben & Jerry’s famous chunks and swirls, but they’re dipped in a dark chocolatey coating and individually wrapped. Instant portion control! They’re also incredibly easy to eat on-the-go. No spoon? No problem. They were made with convenience in mind.

“It took us years to perfect how to squeeze in all the chunks and swirls our fans have come to expect from us,” said Dena Wimette, the Ben & Jerry’s Global Innovation Manager who helped develop the idea. “Using top secret technology, we finally got it. Of course, with all those chunky ingredients, there was no room for a stick,” Wimette said. “It just didn’t fit.”
As part of the introduction of two new Pint Slices flavors, Ben & Jerry’s sent a sneak peek to a select group of super fans. “It’s my favorite-est day!” exclaimed Hannah Arrington of Alexandria, VA when she opened her stash of Candy Bar Pie Pint Slices.
AmazeMint is a mint ice cream bar with chocolatey covered mint cookie balls, covered in a dark chocolatey coating, with cookie crumbs.
