11 Discontinued Ben & Jerry's Flavors That Need To Make A Comeback

After this year, we deserve all the sweet treats.

11 Discontinued Ben & Jerry's Flavors That Need To Make A Comeback

This year has been a crazy year because of the global pandemic and the national presidential election. One way I have been coping with the pandemic is definitely through my love of food, especially desserts. As someone who has one of the biggest "sweet tooths," I was able to research Ben & Jerry's ice cream flavors that have been discontinued in the hopes they'll bring them back.

Overall, after what we all experienced this year, we deserve a sweet something to come out of this year including more unique ice cream flavors so we can all eat our feelings as we reflect on what of a mess this year has been. (Oh, and if you want to really make a difference, you can ask for a flavor to be "resurrected" by clicking on the flavor's name.)

1. Schweddy Balls

Coming in at number one is retired flavor, schweddy balls, not only for its name but also because it was based on a classic "Saturday Night Live" sketch. This ice cream consisted of vanilla ice cream with chocolate malt balls and mixed with fudge-covered rum.

2. Fresh Georgia Peach

All that needs to be said is just imagine the fresh georgia peach flavored ice cream on a hot summer day.

3. Urban Jumble

This ice cream has everything anyone can ask for including coconut ice cream swirled with chocolate ice cream adding white and dark chocolate pieces, pecans, and almonds inside.

4. Miz Jelena's Sweet Potato Pie

People love sweet potato pie over Thanksgiving, so why not have it in an ice cream flavor? It's definitely unique and unexpected. This ice cream flavor consists of ginger-flavored ice cream with fudge.

5. Cool Britannia

This retired ice cream flavor includes vanilla ice cream mixed in with strawberries and fudge-covered shortbread pieces.

6. Wild Maine Blueberry

Again, the world needs more fruit flavored ice cream and unique flavors such as this one.

7. Tennessee Mud

Honestly, since I can't go out to bars anymore because of COVID-19, Ben & Jerry's should bring back this ice cream flavor consisting of coffee ice cream and amaretto with Jack Daniels whiskey and almonds.

8. White Russian

Another alcoholic beverage inspired ice cream flavor consisting of coffee ice cream mixed with Kahlua.

9. Economic Crunch

Truthfully, I just like the name again of this vanilla ice cream mixed with chocolate covered almonds, pecans and walnuts.

10. Purple Passion Fruit

This ice cream flavor gives us raspberries, blackberries, and passion fruit sorbet, which sounds like a refreshing fruity flavor that everyone will love.

11. This is Nuts

2020 has been nuts so might as well bring back this ice cream flavor consisting of chocolate and pistachio ice cream with fudge-covered almonds and pistachios.

As the holiday season draws nearer, many of us find ourselves drawn to the same old Rankin-Bass Christmas specials and the perennial favorite, "A Charlie Brown Christmas." However, I would like to suggest an overlooked alternative, "Arthur's Perfect Christmas." It is a heartfelt, funny, and surprisingly inclusive Christmas special that deserves more recognition.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead
Olivia DeLucia

Laid back and taking it easy — sometimes that is the motto we all need after a busy week. Sunday scaries? Yes, they are valid – but you know what else is? A Sunday full of self-love. A lazy Sunday spent doing what you feel needs to be done to ease into the next week. Self-Love Sundays are a guilty pleasure that isn't only essential for our mind, and body, but are also a surprisingly proactive way to devote the upcoming week with a clear mindset.

So, what is a more suitable way to dedicate your week's end than a beautifully, connected playlist to accompany your face masks and journaling? Cheers, to a Self-Love Sunday (and a playlist intertwined with it to match). (Please note: "Sunday Morning" isn't included in this list, due to the obvious, but feel free to blast it anyway, we know you want to).

Sunset Girl

The sun rose and peeked through the sheer curtains. Rose’s alarm shrieked. The loud bells caused her phone to jump on the side table. It was time for her to get ready for church. Blindly reaching for her phone, she shut the alarm off and pulled at the covers providing her a cocoon of warmth and tossed them to the side. She swept her bare feet across the bed to touch the cool wooden floor.

Rose softly tiptoed to the corner of the bedroom to grab her clothes dangling on the arm of the bedroom chair. Scooping all of the items of her chosen outfit, she headed to the bathroom hoping that she wouldn’t drop anything.

Round, piercing blue eyes stared back at her in the bathroom mirror. Rose fingered the wrinkles forming around her eyes. So many of them bore signs of laughter and smiling. Slowly dropping her hands, she couldn’t remember the last time she laughed in her home with Tom. Shaking her head as if to erase the negative thoughts, she reached for her makeup bag and went through her regular routine.

Applying her favorite deep rose lipstick, Rose headed downstairs to make her coffee and bagel to take with her to church. The smell of dark-roast coffee swirled in the air as Rose sliced her cinnamon raisin bagel. Hearing the Keurig sputter with the fresh brew, Rose found the interruption of the stillness comforting. The toaster signaled that her bagel was done with a soft pop. It had a delicious golden brown color. Placing the bagel on the counter, she generously spread honey nut flavored cream cheese across both halves. Gathering her bible, notebook, and pens from the side table on the porch she stuffed them into her purse. Purse hanging on her right shoulder she juggled her coffee and bagel in both of her hands as she headed to the garage.

This Holiday Season, Choose To Be Eco-friendly And Reduce Pollution

Many of us have old magazines lying around, fully read and not of much use anymore. However, we can use their bright colors and prints as a stylish and trendy wrapping paper!


It can be overwhelming to see the detrimental effects of climate change and pollution on the news, from animals dying and forest fires spreading, but there are smaller changes that we can all make to reduce our carbon footprint, and it begins with our gifting season.

On average, Americans throw 25% more trash between Thanksgiving and New Years, which translates to 25 million tons of garbage. That's 1 million extra tons per week.
