Ben & Jerry's Chaotic Urban Jumble Flavor Was Only Available For 1 Year

If you love rich, decadent ice cream, then we're willing to bet you've downed more than a few pints of Ben & Jerry's in your day. Founded in Burlington, Vermont, in 1978, Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield's creamy, add-ins-loaded frozen desserts quickly became beloved throughout the state, then across the country, and now around the world (via Unilever). Pre-packed pints hit grocery stores beginning in 1980, and ever since, they've been a staple freezer item for many.

But for every wildly successful Chunky Monkey — Ben & Jerry's fruity banana ice cream jammed with fudge chunks and walnuts that was first churned in 1988 and continues to top annual sales to this day (via Dairy Reporter) — there's been a thanks, but no thanks flavor such as Chocolate Comfort, 1999's low-fat dud that lasted less than a year on store shelves. The company's Flavor Graveyard is littered with less-than-popular discontinued pints, and one of those is Urban Jumble, which pushed the limits of Ben & Jerry's propensity toward toppings, mix-ins, and chunks.

This Jumble was perhaps a bit too cluttered

If you were shopping for ice cream in the year 2000, then you might remember Urban Jumble, a Ben & Jerry's offering pairing chocolate and coconut ice creams with chunks of white and dark fudge, pecans, and roasted almonds. Described as a mashup of two popular flavors, New York Super Fudge Chunk and Coconut Almond Fudge Chip, this cacophony of an ice cream flavor was perhaps a bit too loaded, even for die-hard B&J's fans, and had disappeared from store shelves by 2001.

"Some of us hear total chaos in the city. Others hear a symphony. Where does Urban Jumble's bizarre amalgamation of Coconut Almond Fudge Chip and New York Super Fudge Chunk fall between these two polar opposites? Hard to say, since this mixed up flavor lasted just one year," the company's UK site recalls. However, if this kooky pint sounds good to you, you could theoretically re-create it at home by serving yourself scoops of New York Super Fudge Chunk and Coconut Seven Layer Bar — the most similar available option to the now-discontinued Coconut Almond Fudge Chip — in one bowl.
