NEWS: We May Be Waiting a While on Ben & Jerry's Candy Bar Pie


After some of us were starting to get impatient about Ben & Jerry's scheduled release of Candy Bar Pie, we finally received some clarification following a comment left on their Facebook page. It looks like their limited batch Pina Colada flavor hasn't been selling quite as well as they thought, which means we'll be waiting a little longer on the highly anticipated Candy Bar Pie. Stay patient out there. It'll be all worth it soon.

  1. I'm getting confused. I though it was already out, as an exclusive flavor at Walgreens?

    1. No, Walgreen's has Truffle Trifecta. Candy Bar Pie is, frustratingly, only in the Ben & Jerry's scoop shops for now. On a sidenote, Ben & Jerry's seems like they have been having problems figuring out what the public wants lately. They need to get a clue. They sent me a survey about possible new flavors, and I told them that the maple-based one they were planning sounded like the best idea they had had in a long time...on paper. Rockin Blondies was also a great idea....on paper. I encouraged them not to botch the new one, to fix Rockin Blondies, and to stop pushing lukewarm flavors they probably think will appeal to the dweebs who only buy their frozen yogurt line. Unilever is going to kill Ben & Jerry if they don't wake up and remember that the brand is supposed to be about extremes. What does it say about this company when everywhere I look online (including Ben & Jerry's Facebook page) there is someone bemoaning the passing of Oatmeal Cookie Chunk and saying that it was always too damn hard to find? What does it say about this company when the Huffington Post felt compelled to independently organize its own poll to inspire Unilever to revive old flavors and Oatmeal Cookie Chunk is a frontrunner? This company is out of touch, and they need to get it together soon.

    2. Couldn't have said it better myself. Ben & Jerry's have definitely been out of touch recently. Even the better, true-to-form flavors they've come up with recently have been limited, store-exclusive batches that really just re-hash or change one aspect of previous flavors (Peanut Butter Jam Session, Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup). Heck, I bought Red Velvet Cake pretty recently and found it superior to just about every new flavor they've put out in the past six months or so.

  2. The Candy Bar Pie is the best I have had yet and keep looking for it to be out in the stores. I don't have a Ben & Jerry's close enough to get a hand packed pint home before melting.......can't wait and hope they don't change their minds.

    1. I don't think they'll change their minds, but it looks like we'll be waiting a little longer than we all expected.
