Famed ice cream maker Ben & Jerry’s will not be introducing a Bacon flavored product to its offerings because the company intends to keep its entire line kosher, Marketing Director Alison Gilbert told AOL’s morning show Rise recently.

“It’s kind of funny, a lot of people look for bacon in our ice cream, which is probably not gonna happen because all of our ice cream is kosher,” she said, referring to Jewish dietary restrictions that proscribe the consumption of pig meat.

Almost all Ben & Jerry’s products are certified by KOF-K Kosher Supervision, according to the company’s website.

In fact, Ben & Jerry’s’ commitment to Judaism extends even further. The company has previously released a Charoset-flavored ice cream — based on the traditional fruit and nut paste consumed during the Passover Seder. The unique product was certified kosher according to strict Passover dietary guidelines and was sold in Israel.

    “bacon-flavour” doesn’t mean that it’s flavoured with real bacon, so kashruth is not a real issue. (there are “artificial bacon bits” made of tvp that are completely kosher.)

    the real question is, who needs bacon flavoured ice cream!?

  • Bacon may not be an option but parmesan-flavored ice cream has been made in the UK and it is delicious.

    • Reform School

      How about a Kof-K D/P ‘Matzarella’ Ice Cream for Pesach?
