The Ben and Jerry's ice cream factory has an ice cream graveyard on site, where the graves of past ice cream flavors exist. Favorite flavors can be resurrected from their grave to be brought back into stores. Customers can request the return of a favorite flavor by filling out a form on the website.
Black and Tan
The company raised controversy in 2006 after releasing a flavor of ice cream called "Black and Tan." It had named the flavor after the alcoholic drink made by mixing stout with pale ale. Criticism stemmed from the fact that Black and Tans was also a name given to the irregular force of British ex-servicemen recruited during the Irish War of Independence and renowned for their brutality. The flavor itself was a cream stout ice cream swirled with chocolate ice cream.
Bernie's Yearning is an ice cream flavor created by Ben Cohen, the co-founder of Ben & Jerry's, although the company disavows any involvement with the flavor. The flavor is named after Bernie Sanders, of whom Cohen has long been a supporter. Cohen released 40 pints of the flavor in January 2016, after having mused about it on CNN the previous October. He gave away 25 pints of it to Sanders' 2016 presidential campaign. The ice cream consists of a milk chocolate disc covering the top of a much thicker layer of mint ice cream. According to Cohen, the chocolate disc is supposed to represent the overwhelming majority of economic gains that have gone to the top 1% in America over the past ten years.
Chubby Hubby consists of vanilla malt ice cream swirled with fudge and peanut butter, and containing pretzel nuggets covered in fudge and filled with peanut butter. For the month of September 2009, Ben and Jerry's, in partnership with Freedom to Marry, renamed Chubby Hubby to Hubby Hubby, in celebration of the legalization of same-sex marriage in the company's home state of Vermont. The carton featured the image of two men getting married beneath a rainbow. In April 2013 Chubby Hubby changed its formula. They changed the fudge covered peanut butter filled pretzels to a chocolate covered pretzel.
On March 13, 2012, Ben & Jerry’s announced it will be changing the name of one of its ice cream flavors in the UK in support of equal marriage rights for same-sex couples. Oh! My! Apple Pie! will become Apple-y Ever After and tubs will feature a gay couple atop a wedding cake decorated with rainbows.
Stephen Colbert's AmeriCone Dream
Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield appeared on the The Colbert Report on March 5, 2007 to promote their new ice cream flavor, Stephen Colbert's AmeriCone Dream, and their grassroots education and advocacy project, TrueMajority.
Late Night Snack
On March 2, 2011, Cohen and Greenfield appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and unveiled their new flavor of ice cream, Late Night Snack, the carton of which features a picture of Jimmy Fallon on it. The packaging describes the flavor as "vanilla bean ice cream with a salty caramel swirl and fudge covered potato chip clusters."
In 2011, Ben & Jerry's released a flavor named Schweddy Balls, in homage to the Saturday Night Live skit of the same name. Actor Alec Baldwin, who appeared in the SNL sketch as baker Pete Schweddy, hosted the September 24, 2011 episode of the show and mentioned the AFA's outcry in his introduction: "[...] but one sketch people always ask me about is Pete Schweddy and his famous Schweddy Balls. And now Schweddy Balls is its own Ben & Jerry's ice cream flavor."
Taste the Lin-Sanity
In 2012, a Ben & Jerry's franchise created a scoop-shop-only flavor made to order, named "Taste the Lin-Sanity" in honor of Asian-American basketball player Jeremy Lin. It contained lychee honey swirls and fortune cookie pieces, but after initial backlash, Ben & Jerry's replaced the fortune cookies with waffle cookies. The franchise said that the primary reason was because the fortune cookies got soggy. The operator of the scoop shop later apologized to anyone offended by their Lin-Sanity flavor. Ben & Jerry's corporation never intended to mass-produce or distribute the flavor.
The Vermonster is a large ice cream sundae served in a "Vermonster Bucket" in Ben & Jerry's "scoop shops." Its ingredients are 20 scoops of ice cream, 4 bananas, 4 ladles of hot fudge, 3 chocolate chip cookies, 1 chocolate fudge brownie, 10 scoops of walnuts, 2 scoops each of 4 toppings of your choice, and whipped cream. It contains 14,000 calories, and 500 grams of fat.
The company renamed a flavor, Yes Pecan!, in reference to Barack Obama's victory in the 2008 U.S. Presidential election. They later decided in January 2009 to donate all proceeds made on the sale of that flavor to the Common Cause Education Fund.
The Tonight Dough
On February 17, 2015, in honor of the one-year anniversary of the premiere of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Ben & Jerry's unveiled The Tonight Dough Starring Jimmy Fallon. All of its proceeds go to the SeriousFun Children's Network, which supports camps for children with major illnesses.

In recognition of the 23-year-old's overnight fame, the new frozen yogurt pints are made at the Harvard Square shop with vanilla frozen yogurt, lychee honey swirls and come with a fresh waffle cookie on the side, which can be dipped into the container or crushed on top, company officials said.
