Ben & Jerry's New Summer Sorbet Packs a Sweet and Sour Punch
It’s the company’s first new sorbet in years.
Ben & Jerry’s just dropped a limited-edition pint that sounds like a far cry from its super popular and super creamy Phish Food, Chunky Monkey, and Half Baked flavors.
Pucker Upper is a refreshing raspberry sorbet with an extra tart lemonade swirl which features sour sugar bits, according to a press release.
“With a dairy coating around the bits, which prevents them from dissolving in sorbet, the flavor flirts with a bit of a sherbet approach while allowing the pockets of pucker to be preserved,” the release states.

This is actually the first new sorbet product the company has released in years.
"After 13 years with the company, I don't think I've ever seen a flavor quite like this," said Laura Essaid, Ben & Jerry's Associate Brand Manager who helped with the new flavor creation process, in a statement. "It's a perfect flavor for summer with a balance of sweet and sour, while light, fruity, and refreshing … plus, there's no grill required."
The pint, which boasts only half a gram of fat and 110 calories per serving, retails for about $4.89. Get it while you can, because Pucker Upper won't be around forever.
