“So why combine ice cream and cereal? Because the sweet milk at the bottom of a cereal bowl is arguably the best part,” said Ben & Jerry’s Flavor Guru, Eric Fredette. “We wanted to take our flavor concepts and make people feel like a kid again, which is how we landed with our Cereal Splashback flavors. There’s a flavor for every fan that will help bring them back to the prize-at-the-bottom-of-the-box days, watching Saturday morning cartoons in pajamas.”
To officially unveil the new flavors, Ben & Jerry’s is encouraging fans in the Big Apple to join them for an epic celebration at New York City’s own Grand Central Station. From 9 a.m. -7 p.m. in Vanderbilt Hall, fans will have the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to jump into a larger-than-life cereal bowl ball pit, indulge in plenty of free samples of all three new Cereal Splashback flavors, and have the chance to take home free Ben & Jerry’s for a year!
To make it that much sweeter, Cereal Splashbacks will be available this September in New Zealand, Singapore and Australia.
