The Doughliciously Tasty History of Our Famous Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough!



Ben & Jerry's Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough ice cream

We’ve got a loooong history with dough and kind of started the whole cookie-dough-in-ice-cream trend in 1984 when a fan suggested it to us! Ever since then, we've been dough-sessed! Here’s a quick summary of how this dough-licious flavour rose to power in the ice cream world.

  • 1984

    At our very first Scoop Shop in a renovated gas station in Burlington, VT, an anonymous fan suggested that we mix gobs of cookie dough into our Vanilla ice cream. We gave it a dough, and our fans seemed to like it. (Like, a lot.)

  • 1991

    Fans in our Scoop Shops became dough-ssed with our Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream! They loved it so much that we had to pack it into pints and bring it to grocery store shelves!

  • 2015

    In 2015 we landed in New Zealand and opened up our very first Scoop Shop in Ponsonby, Auckland - bringing along, yep you guessed it.. our dough-licious Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough!

  • 2015

    In the same year, ice cream fans did an experiment and dough-scovered that our Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough ice cream has more cookie dough than other brands! #Win

    It comes at dough surprise that when we launched Pint Slices, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough was one of the first flavours we created!
