Non-Dairy and vegan consumers can enjoy a classic Ben & Jerry's flavour as well as a two Non-Dairy exclusive flavours all to satisfy their indulgence cravings.
"I worked for almost two years as the developer of this Non-Dairy line.

"The combination of our classic chunks, swirls, and fun flavours, creates a Ben & Jerry's quality experience from the first creamy spoonful, sure to please our vegan and non-dairy fans."
