New Ben and Jerry's vegan flavors!
I was able to find two of the three flavors at my local Albertsons' store (if you are local, it's the Irvine store on Campus Drive near UCI) for $5.79 each. Pints are a little pricey, but I'm hoping as these become more widely available the price will come down. This particular Albertsons store had all three vegan flavors but were already sold out of the Coconut Seven Layer Bar. Short descriptions of each flavor are below.
Caramel Almond Brittle - "almond with salted caramel swirls and pieces of almond brittle"
Cherry Garcia - "cherry with cherries and fudge flakes"
Coconut Seven Layer Bar - "coconut with fudge chunks, walnuts, and swirls of graham cracker and caramel"
I know a lot of people are concerned about ingredients, so they will be glad to know these new flavors are certified vegan, use fair trade sugar and chocolate, and do not contain palm oil. You can see a full list of ingredients for the Cherry Garcia and Caramel Almond Brittle below:

Also to note, Ben and Jerry's is owned by Unilever (which tests on animals for some of their products), so how you feel about this parent company may determine whether or not you purchase this brand. However, I am glad that bigger parent companies are investing so much in vegan products and I'm hoping that by purchasing these items it shows them what high demand there is for non-dairy, vegan products! As there is more of a demand for vegan products these companies will invest more in vegan options and adopt more animal- and planet-friendly policies.
