Ben & Jerry’s Might Be Introducing Kombucha Ice Cream
It's 2017, and dairy-free ice cream options abound. But leave it to Ben & Jerry's to come up with the next good-for-you flavor trend: One that's made with fermented foods (as in the stuff that's totally good for your gut).
In a recent interview with Fortune magazine, Ben & Jerry's chief flavor guy Eric Fredette spilled the beans on the idea, explaining: "There's a tartness [in fermented foods] that could make for a riff on sweet and sour."
He went on to add, "Obviously, I'm not putting kimchi in ice cream, but something fermented with a little funk to it, a little twist, that you could marry with something sweet. It would be familiar to people who drink kombucha."
So, basically, what Eric is telling us is that he's on the cusp of inventing a doctor-recommended pint. Pass the spoons.
