US ice-cream company Ben & Jerry’s is launching vegan cookie dough flavor in the UK later this fall.

The Cookies on Cookie Dough ice-cream is made from almonds, vegan cookie dough chunks, chocolatey chunks and a cookie swirl.

It will join a selection of other dairy-free flavors including Peanut Butter & Cookies and Chocolate Fudge Brownie, which launched in the UK in 2016.

Vegan cookie dough

“Our classic Cookie Dough tub was concocted for people who know the joy (and the temptation!) of sneaking a bite or two of cookie dough before it makes it into the oven, which got us thinking… Why should our vegan fans have to miss out? 

“We’ve been working hard, with our friends at Rhino [Rhino Foods – which supplied the cookie dough] to create a vegan cookie dough that really stands up to the original. I think we nailed it.”

Cookies on Cookie Dough will launch in stores across the UK from late September. RRP £6.
