Flavor naming day is always a big to-do around here. We have an extra bowl of ice cream (duh), sharpen our pencils extra sharp, and get ready to brainstorm names for the next epic Ben & Jerry’s flavour.
But, sadly, not every name can make it onto the mix. And a lot of truly hilarious ideas end up on the cutting room floor. These are some of our absolute favourite flavour names that didn’t quite make the cut:
Item number 1
Bob Marley’s One Love was almost called Chunk it Up, but we didn’t think it paid enough respect to the man that inspired the flavour.
Item number 2
Mint…winter…minter! Minter Wonderland came close to falling for the classic rhyming move for flavour naming, but thankfully Minter for the Winter was out-voted.
Item number 3
Topped Strawberry Swirled was nearly called Para-Para-Parad-Ice, but thankfully, not everyone was a fan of that song.
Item number 4
Would you believe Topped Strawberry Swirled had yet another name on the list? Berry Mellow was also thrown out there, but again, the musical direction got nixed.
Item number 5
Our Non-Dairy line was close to having a different name: Almond Dangerous. However, we didn’t want anyone to worry that our Non-Dairy ice cream was anything but delicious.
Item number 6
Our seasonal sweetheart Joy to the Swirled was proposed to be Thrilla in Vanilla, but it really didn’t convey the holiday spirit.
