A new range of light Ben & Jerry’s ice cream with chunky, swirly flavours will be released in Australia in February after being launched in the US and the UK.

Ben & Jerry’s Moo-phoria is a new light ice cream range with 45 per cent less fat than standard ice cream, coming in at between 150 and 160 calories per serving.

Available in three flavours, the new lighter ice cream range is made from organic dairy and is Fairtrade certified. Moo-phoria flavours include Chocolate Cookie Affair, a light chocolate and vanilla ice cream swirled with chocolate chip cookies; Caramel Cookie Fix, a light vanilla ice cream with shortbread cookie and salted caramel swirl; and PB Dough, a light chocolate ice cream with chocolate chip peanut butter cookie dough.

Ben & Jerry’s ice cream is sold via the Uber Eats app, and is also available from Scoop stores and petrol and convenience stores nationally.
