Ben and Jerry's is known for punny names and different ice cream flavors. But not all of the flavors are winners. Whether its a fishy name or a disturbing combination of flavors, these Ben and Jerry's flavors just couldn't last. They now lie in the flavor graveyard, where we can pay tribute to the pints that have gone before us. Take a walk on the eerie side through the graveyard yourself.
When you're feeling some financial pressure, just eat some Economic Crunch ice cream. Made popular by the stock market crash on November 6th in 1987, the vanilla ice cream with chocolate covered almonds, pecans and walnuts wasn't super popular.
This 2011 Holiday Season Limited Batch was only around for a short period of time. We're guessing it's because of its, well, interesting name. Schweddy Balls was vanilla ice cream with a hint of rum, packed with fudge-covered rum balls and malt balls. It came from a SNL skit featuring Pete Schweddy.
There's something about eating a pint of Fossil Fuel that just makes us think about oil and car parts. That's far from what this ice cream is actually made of, but it didn't last long regardless. The sweet cream ice cream filled with chocolate cookie pieces, fudge dinosaurs and fudge swirl only lasted from 2005 to 2010.
This Holy Cannoli wasn't holy for long. The creamy ricotta and pistachio ice cream had chocolate covered cannoli pieces and roasted pistachios. Interesting to say the least. It only lasted from 1997 to 1998.
While this ice cream flavor sounds like it should be a side at a Thanksgiving meal, its hippie vibe set it apart. Wavy Gravy was a caramel and cashew brazil nut ice cream swirled with chocolate hazelnut fudge and filled with almonds.
Go cows, go cows! This sweet ice cream had dark chocolate cookie pieces, dark chocolate cows and a chocolate fudge swirl. Wow, that's a lot of chocolate! It was only around in 2012 though.
Some say the raisins in this ice cream caused its death, but whatever it was, it lasted from 1979 to 1991. This chocolate ice cream had pecans, almonds, raisins and chocolate chips.
Peanuts and popcorn sure do sound good, but in ice cream, popcorn just won't cut it. This caramel ice cream had white fudge covered caramel popcorn, toffee-coated peanuts and a caramel swirl. We're sure the popcorn just got mushy and maybe that's why it was only around in 2000.
Oh yum, turtle soup. This slow and steady ice cream definitely didn't win the race. It lasted from 2006 until 2010 when it was eventually put to rest. Its vanilla ice cream base is packed with fudge-covered caramel cashews and a caramel swirl.
Pears should probably just be left as a fruit. This pear ice cream had a hint of almond and a fudge swirl. It barely even lasted a year, being both launched and discontinued in 1997.
Miz Jelena’s Sweet Potato Pie
We're not sure how good sweet potato ice cream could taste and that's exactly why this flavor only lasted one year from 1992 to 1993. It was ginger ice cream with a fudge swirl. Grandma's sweet potato pie is way better.
Peanut Butter And Jelly
While you may think peanut butter and jelly ice cream sounds good, it didn't last long. It was only around for one year between 1989 and 1990. This peanut butter ice cream was filled with peanut butter bits and a strawberry jelly swirl. We'll just stick to a PB&J sandwich.
While the White Russian made a comeback from the grave, its old name is long gone. This coffee ice cream was infused with Kahlua Coffee Liqueur and lasted from 1986 to 1996. Now it's back and called Hand Packed.
The Wich was vanilla fudge chip ice cream packed full of fudge swirled chocolate chunk cookies. While it does sound pretty delicious, this ice cream flavor didn't last long. This wicked concoction couldn't stand to stay and was only around from 2004 to 2006.
This coffee liqueur ice cream is filled with chocolate cookie crumb swirl and fudge cows. We don't know about you, but this flavor doesn't sound too bad. Sadly, it only lasted from 2006 to 2008.
