*THE* Ice Cream Flavors Of The Summer

From fruity to funky, here’s the scoop on fun new flavors.

Real blueberries, ribbons of honey, and subtly floral lavender make this ice cream taste like summer on a spoon. Alec’s Ice Cream is made using organic A2 dairy (which can be more gentle on the stomach). Alec's Ice Cream
This pink rosé & watermelon vegan sorbet is light and refreshing, and it only includes trace amounts of alcohol, so you don’t have to go easy. The new summer picnic series flavors from Salt & Straw include fried chicken & cinnamon or baked brie & fig cheesecake. Yes to all.Salt & Straw
Condiment queens rejoice: Van Leeuwen released a mustard-flavored ice cream, available exclusively at Walmart. There’s a swirl of Grey Poupon mixed into sweet ice cream and finished with crunchy, salty pretzels.Van Leeuwen
This minty flavor is new for summer 2022, and it’s Keto-friendly, so even more people can get in on the fun. Halo Top
A cake pop meets strawberry and sweet cream ice creams in this new Häagen-Dazs flavor from the City Sweets collection. If chocolate ice cream is more your speed, check out the black and white cookie flavor or chocolate PB pretzel.Häagen-Dazs
Peaches are the unofficial fruit of summer, and this peach cobbler ice cream takes fruity ice cream and adds buttery pie crust, a touch of cinnamon, and crushed graham cracker.Creamalicious
Frankie & Jo’s makes plant-based, vegan, and gluten-free ice cream that’s all around delicious. Perfect for pairing with s’mores, this classic rocky road flavor takes chocolate ice cream and adds walnuts and marshmallows.Frankie & Jo's
Yes it sounds weird, but it’s actually weirdly good (trust). Sweet cream cheese ice cream is studded with buttery streusel pieces (that’s the “bagel) that are sprinkled with sesame, poppy seed, onion, and garlic in this limited-edition flavor you won’t want to miss.Jeni's Ice Cream
It may be too hot for a steaming mug of tea, but the weather is right for earl gray ice cream. Bergamot oil-infused black tea ice cream filled with pillowy chunks of buttery shortbread. And you don’t even have to pretend to like cucumber sandwiches.McConnell's
Finally, Ben & Jerry’s released their “Core” line in a few non-dairy flavors, including this rich bananas foster. Bananas, cinnamon, brown sugar, and plenty of caramel make this the kind of dessert you want to savor outside on a hot summer night.Ben & Jerry's
Can’t decide between strawberry or lime sorbet? Have them both. Almost too pretty to scoop, this sorbet pairing is infused with Mexican agave for a bit of sweetness. I bet this would be tasty blended with tequila.Talenti
Creamy and rich, it’s hard to believe this dessert doesn’t include dairy. Buttery pecan, with rich caramel and a satisfying nutty crunch is the perfect summer flavor for cooling off on a hot day, but the brand has plenty of other vegan options too. So Delicious
