BURLINGTON, Vt., May 29, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- With summer weather just around the corner, Ben & Jerry's is dishing out its latest offering knowing its fans are ready for a tantalizingly tart and refreshing flavor for the season. The iconic ice cream company is unveiling something it hasn't for years: a new sorbet concoction. You can sorBET your booty that this is not a flavorless fruity offering weak on taste or experience. This is a full-on Ben & Jerry's taste bud attack, that'll knock you over and leave you wanting for nothing more. America, pucker up…
Pucker Upper is a raspberry sorbet with an extra tart lemonade swirl which features sour sugar bits, a completely new ingredient, custom-designed for this Ben & Jerry's flavor. The raspberry sorbet base and extra tart lemonade swirl are certain to be a perfect pleaser for the end of any backyard barbeque. With a dairy coating around the bits, which prevents them from dissolving in sorbet, the flavor flirts with a bit of a sherbet approach while allowing the pockets of pucker to be preserved.
"After 13 years with the company, I don't think I've ever seen a flavor quite like this," said Laura Essaid, Ben & Jerry's Associate Brand Manager who helped with the new flavor creation process. "It's a perfect flavor for summer with a balance of sweet and sour, while light, fruity, and refreshing… plus, there's no grill required."
The pucker-worthy flavor featured both in pints and at the company's franchised Scoop Shop nationwide fills a niche in the sorbet category with only half a gram of fat and 110 calories per serving. The pint retails with a MSRP of $4.89.
So, if you're a sucker for sour, this Limited Batch flavor is packed with sour-powered pucker-uppertunities galore, from the uber tart and tangy twist of raspberry and lemonade sorbets to the sweet and sassy blast of sour sugar bits. Don't wait, as Pucker Upper will be the featured Limited Batch flavor for a limited time only in pints and at Ben & Jerry's Scoop Shops nationwide.
