Are you a fan of Ben & Jerry’s discontinued Oatmeal Cookie Chunk Ice Cream? Wait, let me rephrase that. Are you mad at Ben & Jerry’s for discontinuing Oatmeal Cookie Chunk? If so, do not read the rest of this post because it may make you angrier.
Earlier this month we covered a couple of upcoming Ben & Jerry’s flavors, but there’s a third and that’s Oat of this Swirled. The new flavor features buttery brown sugar ice cream with fudge flakes and oatmeal cinnamon cookie swirls.
It’s somewhat similar to the beloved Oatmeal Cookie Chunk, which had sweet cream cinnamon ice cream, oatmeal cookies, and fudge chunks. So Oat of this Swirled is maddeningly close to the flavor that now sits in Ben & Jerry’s Flavor Graveyard.
If you’re not familiar with the story about the discontinued flavor, it was taken off shelves because Ben & Jerry’s couldn’t find a replacement supplier for the oatmeal cookies who could produce cookies as good as the original. So instead of putting mediocre cookies into their ice cream, they discontinued the flavor in 2012.
