Ben & Jerry's, the creators of popular ice cream concoctions such as Cherry Garcia and Americone Dream, announced this week that their newest limited batch creation will be Cannoli.
The ice cream will be a mascarpone ice cream with fudge-covered cannoli pastry chunks and a mascarpone swirl. Mascarpone is an Italian cheese made from cream.
Traditionally, cannoli is an Italian dessert that consists of fried pastry dough filled with a creamy cheese filling, usually containing ricotta.
The new flavor will be available in the U.S. for a limited time, so make sure to stock up if you love cannoli. Ben & Jerry's fans should be able to find the treat in stores that sell pints of Ben & Jerry's ice cream.
This is not the first odd limited batch of ice cream the company has created. Back in 2000 the company released a Festivus ice cream to celebrate the holidays. The flavor contained brown sugar cinnamon ice cream, ginger bread cookies, and a ginger caramel swirl. Other limited batch flavors have included Ginger Snap, Lemon Meringue, Peanuts! Popcorn!, Southern Pecan Pie, and Chocolate Chocolate Cookie.
Seems like you folks are excited about our new limited batch flavor, Cannoli! It will be available soon in freezers all across the USA.
