Watching your favorite TV show while eating ice cream is a time-honored entertainment tradition. The advent of streaming services like Netflix have made it even more appealing to binge both the latest series everyone’s talking about and polish off a pint of ice cream at the same time. In honor of their natural synergy, Netflix and Ben & Jerry’s have teamed up to create the ultimate ice cream flavor to eat in front of the television: Netflix & Chilll’d.
The base is peanut butter ice cream, which is mixed with sweet and salty pretzel swirls as well as fudge brownie. For those who are dairy-free, Ben & Jerry’s will also offer an almond milk-based version of the new flavor. It sounds like the perfectly addictive combination to keep you glued to your couch for the night.
“There’s something for everyone to watch on Netflix and flavors for everyone to enjoy Ben & Jerry’s, so we’ve teamed up to bring you a chillaxing new creation that’s certain to satisfy any sweet or salty snack craving,” reads the product description on the Ben & Jerry’s web site. “It’s a flavorful world, and everyone is invited to grab a spoon.”
Ben & Jerry’s also teased the new offering on its Instagram, at @benandjerrys. In fact, they created a trailer to preview it:
On another post, the company said, “With the perfect mix of peanut butter intrigue, pretzel drama and fudge brownie belly laughs, NEW Netflix & Chilll’d pairs well with any of your Netflix programming.”
Comments on this post were very positive, with lolo_lantero saying, “I don’t think I could’ve created a more perfect flavor ð¦.”
You can sign up on their site to get an email newsletter with the details of when and where pints of the new flavor will be available.
People reports that Netflix & Chilll’d has already been spotted at grocery stores across the country for around $5 a pint. Staffers there got a chance to sample the new flavor, and they confirm that it’s perfectly binge-able.
With the vast array of content available to stream on Netflix, you might have a little trouble picking which show or movie you should pair with your first pint of Netflix & Chilll’d. If you’re looking for some inspiration, Ben & Jerry’s has created a quiz to help you pick the perfect Netflix Original to take in while you savor the flavor.
But if you prefer a less chilly treat for your viewing pleasure, you might also want to pick up some of Ben & Jerry’s Cookie Dough Chunks. Eat them by themselves or with another kind of ice cream in front of the TV if you like!
