Cherry non-dairy frozen dessert with cherry vegan ice cream, cherries and fudge flakes. This flavor is our tribute to guitarist jerry garcia fans everywhere, and it all started with a piece of fan mail.
You see, back in the day, before smartphones and social media, our fans spoke to us via handwritten notes pinned to the bulletin boards at our scoop shops. Sometime in 1986, one such fan mailed a postcard to our main office in burlington, vermont. Ice cream meets great guitar solos? We loved the idea, and ben immediately began creating the iconic concoction. Cherry garcia debuted in 1987 and quickly became one of our top three most popular flavors. But just as every good musician has to evolve, ben & jerry's does, too. So in answer to queries from all of those air-guitar heroes who can’t or choose not to eat dairy, we decided it was time to create this fan favorite into a non-dairy ice cream and it's 100% vegan. It’s made with smooth and creamy almond milk, which is the perfect blank canvas for the cherries and fudge flakes we pack into this pint. Same euphoria, minus the dairy—and here’s hoping it inspires at least a few soulful guitar riffs powered by this non-dairy ice cream.
Like all of our flavors, cherry garcia is a gmo free ice cream and uses fairtrade certified cocoa and vanilla. If that’s not enough, we went one step further to gain 100% vegan diet certification. All the flavor is wrapped in responsibly sourced packaging so you can feel good about what’s in your freezer.
