Ben & Jerry's Amazing New Summer Flavor Is a Target Exclusive

Ben & Jerry's Amazing New Summer Flavor Is a Target Exclusive

Glampfire Trail Mix is full of marshmallows, chocolate, and pretzels

Ben & Jerry's Glampfire Trail Mix is out just in time for summer.

It’s finally getting to be warm enough to call it ice cream season, and Ben & Jerry’s has come through with a new summer flavor inspired by camping, trail mix, and ridiculous amounts of chocolate and marshmallows.

According to Delish, Ben & Jerry’s new Glampfire Trail Mix ice cream is inspired by “glamping,” which is basically just like regular camping, except the tent would make a five-star hotel look shabby, and when you decide you want to make s’mores, someone comes out in a golf cart to build the fire and also bring some iced Champagne. It might not bear much resemblance to “roughing it,” but neither does this new ice cream bear much resemblance to the healthy mix of sunflower seeds and raisins that people used to call trail mix. Not that that’s a bad thing, because Ben & Jerry’s new flavor sounds more like a new take on perennial favorite Rocky Road. It’s a chocolate ice cream with thick swirls of marshmallow, fudge-covered almonds, and a crunchy swirl of salty pretzels. Even among the complete list of Ben & Jerry’s flavors, that one sounds pretty indulgent.

Unfortunately, Glampfire Trail Mix is only available at Target, but it’s already available in stores.

Ben & Jerry’s also has a second summer flavor that’s not just for Target, and this one sounds pretty great too. Gimme S’More starts with a toasted marshmallow ice cream base mixed with chocolate swirls, graham cracker swirls, and fudge flakes.

Gimme S’More is already in stores as well, so between the two flavors it sounds like this week’s dessert plans are sorted. For more on one of America’s favorite ice cream brands, check out these 11 things you didn’t know about Ben & Jerry’s.


We tried the 10 most popular Ben and Jerry's flavors—and this is the best one

There comes a day in everyone’s life when they experience the truest form of joy. For some, this may be their wedding or the birth of their child. For me, it was the day my boss told me I could taste test Ben and Jerry’s ice cream.

My B&J addiction didn’t actually begin until midway through college, and back then, I could stop myself and not eat the entire container. I had control those days—not anymore though. Fast forward to yesterday, my roommates and I literally ordered three pints of Ben and Jerry’s through GoPuff at 11 p.m. because someone mentioned it and then we all started craving it. On a Monday night, people—we have a problem. While my coworkers have tested ice cream makers and swear it's actually easy to make your own, I’d rather pay someone to bring perfectly crafted dairy heaven right to my doorstep, thank you very much.

Picking the flavors

Once my boss gave me the go-ahead to move forward with this test, I reached out to Ben and Jerry’s for the top 10 Ben and Jerry’s flavors of 2019. Now, by narrowing it down to the top all-time flavors instead of naming some crazy rare flavor that won’t be available in three months, we are only considering the ones that Ben and Jerry’s data analysts saw to be the most highly consumed flavors on the market today—ones that probably won’t be going away anytime soon. A lot of our editors were also upset at this list, particularly Executive Editor TJ Donegan, who wouldn’t stop pestering me about how Milk and Cookies is downright the best flavor and doesn’t get enough credit. Regardless, this is the list of our taste-tested Top 10 Ben and Jerry's Flavors:

This is our list of the Top 10 Ben and Jerry's flavors, in order!

How we tested

We’ve done it with chips, Oreos, and even healthy ice cream. The blind taste test works and it keeps our testers honest—for the most part. This one was slightly harder because our office is apparently full of people who can identify Ben and Jerry’s flavors just from a glance.

I had our office rank each flavor on a scale of 1-5, with 1 being the worst and 5 being the best, based on taste, texture, appearance, and overall thoughts. We then calculated each factor’s score for all the ice cream, and averaged them together to get the overall score of said ice cream. Which flavor reigned supreme? Which one fell flat on its face? Are these all really so good that they beat out all the peanut-butter-based ice creams? Here’s what we found:

The Winner: Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough was our winner overall, and our Top Texture winner.

Overall Score: 8.19 out of 10

This wasn’t too surprising since this is a classic flavor, but I was disappointed at how standard our tastes were. This flavor won overall in Best Texture with it’s “gobs of chocolate chip cookie dough.” Invented in 1984, Ben and Jerry’s made the world’s first batch of Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough and hasn’t stopped since. One tester wrote that it had the “perfect ratio of chunks to ice cream.” Some people complained that it was too sweet, but that’s not in my vocabulary. Overall, it’s not shocking that this won overall because Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough is something we’ve all had from Ben and Jerry’s and will have again sometime soon (to be honest, I’ll probably go get a pint after writing this).

Overall Score: 8.19 out of 10

This wasn’t too surprising since this is a classic flavor, but I was disappointed at how standard our tastes were. This flavor won overall in Best Texture with it’s “gobs of chocolate chip cookie dough.” Invented in 1984, Ben and Jerry’s made the world’s first batch of Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough and hasn’t stopped since. One tester wrote that it had the “perfect ratio of chunks to ice cream.” Some people complained that it was too sweet, but that’s not in my vocabulary. Overall, it’s not shocking that this won overall because Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough is something we’ve all had from Ben and Jerry’s and will have again sometime soon (to be honest, I’ll probably go get a pint after writing this).

There comes a day in everyone’s life when they experience the truest form of joy. For some, this may be their wedding or the birth of their child. For me, it was the day my boss told me I could taste test Ben and Jerry’s ice cream.

My B&J addiction didn’t actually begin until midway through college, and back then, I could stop myself and not eat the entire container. I had control those days—not anymore though. Fast forward to yesterday, my roommates and I literally ordered three pints of Ben and Jerry’s through GoPuff at 11 p.m. because someone mentioned it and then we all started craving it. On a Monday night, people—we have a problem. While my coworkers have tested ice cream makers and swear it's actually easy to make your own, I’d rather pay someone to bring perfectly crafted dairy heaven right to my doorstep, thank you very much.

Picking the flavors

Once my boss gave me the go-ahead to move forward with this test, I reached out to Ben and Jerry’s for the top 10 Ben and Jerry’s flavors of 2019. Now, by narrowing it down to the top all-time flavors instead of naming some crazy rare flavor that won’t be available in three months, we are only considering the ones that Ben and Jerry’s data analysts saw to be the most highly consumed flavors on the market today—ones that probably won’t be going away anytime soon. A lot of our editors were also upset at this list, particularly Executive Editor TJ Donegan, who wouldn’t stop pestering me about how Milk and Cookies is downright the best flavor and doesn’t get enough credit. Regardless, this is the list of our taste-tested Top 10 Ben and Jerry's Flavors:

This is our list of the Top 10 Ben and Jerry's flavors, in order!

How we tested

We’ve done it with chips, Oreos, and even healthy ice cream. The blind taste test works and it keeps our testers honest—for the most part. This one was slightly harder because our office is apparently full of people who can identify Ben and Jerry’s flavors just from a glance.

I had our office rank each flavor on a scale of 1-5, with 1 being the worst and 5 being the best, based on taste, texture, appearance, and overall thoughts. We then calculated each factor’s score for all the ice cream, and averaged them together to get the overall score of said ice cream. Which flavor reigned supreme? Which one fell flat on its face? Are these all really so good that they beat out all the peanut-butter-based ice creams? Here’s what we found:

The Winner: Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough was our winner overall, and our Top Texture winner.
