Ben and Jerry’s has revealed its top 10 ice cream flavours of 2016

Ice cream is one of those things that seems to go with every dessert.

Maybe it’s an apple crumble that satisfies your taste buds or a chocolate melt-in-the-mouth pudding that's your weakness, but whatever it may be, the sugary puddings wouldn’t be complete without a scoopful of ice cream.

And according to ice cream manufacturer Ben and Jerry's, the flavour you chose to scoop alongside your dessert or eat alone says a lot about you.

They said: “Busy flavours with a boatload of chunks and swirls? You’re probably a go-getter with a packed schedule.

“Decadent chocolates and thick caramels? You love the best of the best, no matter what.”

So let’s look back on the year that was, raise our pints, and say 'cheers' to the top 10 Ben & Jerry’s flavours of 2016.

10. Salted caramel core

9. Strawberry cheesecake

Maybe it’s the chunks of strawberries that kept people coming back for more. 

8. Chunky Monkey

Last year's number 5, but this year's number 7 - the chocolate ice cream with marshmallow, caramel & chocolatey shaped fish has dropped two places.  

6. Americone Dream

Up from last year’s number 8 spot, this caramel, chocolate ice cream with chocolate cookie swirls, gobs of chocolate chip cookie dough and peanut butter cookie dough is hitting the spot for many ice cream lovers.

4. Chocolate Fudge Brownie

Chocolate, chocolate, and more chocolate – what’s not to love?

3. Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

It’s an all-time favourite and it’s still going strong after it was anonymously suggested by a fan in 1984.

2. Cherry Garcia

It’s the edible tribute to guitarist Jerry Garcia and Grateful Dead fans everywhere and it still seems to be topping the charts. 

1. Half Baked

Coming up trumps is the chocolate and vanilla ice cream with fudge brownies and dollops of chocolate chip cookie dough - and what a worthy winner it is!
