Flavour enthusiasts, Ben & Jerry’s, are exciting ice cream fans nationwide with the announcement of Spice & All Things N’ice – a new winter addition featuring creamy caramel ice cream and real gingerbread cookie pieces. It’s not just gingerbread spices warming up this latest concoction, the company is also using part of the proceeds from Spice & All Things N’ice to set up a fund to get refugee entrepreneurs started in the business world.
- in freezers nationwide, Spice & All Things N’ice taps into the trend for ‘heat and sweet’ flavours by combining warming gingerbread cookie pieces with creamy caramel ice cream and decadent chocolate chunks for fans to dig their spoons into. With all the chunks and swirls Ben & Jerry’s is known for, the launch puts a tasty twist on a traditional winter treat.
The cooperative fund created from this launch will be owned and managed by graduates of the “Ice Academy”, which is a business training, mentoring and employment programme set up by Ben & Jerry’s and The Entrepreneurial Refugee Network (TERN).
Christina Dunn, Ben & Jerry's UK Country Business Lead, commented: “We’ve taken a traditional winter flavour to create new Spice & All Things N’ice, which taps into the trend for flavours with a kick. Not only will it warm bowls throughout the colder months, it will also warm hearts by supporting a worthwhile cause. We think it’s often the simplest of ideas that can be the sweetest… and what's sweeter than giving refugees the tools they need to unlock their potential?”
Part of the Ben & Jerry’s Fairtrade family, Spice & All Things N’ice uses Fairtrade-certified ingredients including creamy caramel ice cream, gingerbread cookie pieces and chocolate chunks.
New Ben & Jerry’s Spice & All Things N’ice has an RRP of £5.49*.
