Chancelor Johnathan Bennett, known around the world as Chance the Rapper, is taking a spin in the kitchen and bringing his wildest ice cream dreams to life with a Ben & Jerry’s mint ice cream and brownie flavor collab called “Mint Chocolate Chance!”
Mint Chocolate Chance has a cool mint ice cream base with fudgy chocolate brownies made by our Open Hiring bakery staff at Greyston Bakery. It was inspired by Chance’s own favorite concoction growing up, when he would add his mother’s brownies to mint ice cream. The Ben & Jerry’s version is available as both ice cream and a sunflower butter-based Non-Dairy dessert.
Chicago’s own Grammy-award winning artist, humanitarian, and philanthropist – who can’t be so easily labeled other than that he magnificently colors the world – has this to say about his newfound flavorful fame: “I’m so excited to have my own flavor of ice cream with Ben & Jerry’s. I grew up with their ice cream as a kid so getting to create a new flavor brought back a lot of great memories. It amazes me that no one thought to combine brownies and mint chocolate chip and I can’t wait to share it with everyone.”
The use of brownies in this flavor supports the work of our Open Hire bakery team however the impact is even greater because a percentage of proceeds will benefit Chance the Rapper’s non-profit, SocialWorks. SocialWorks aims to empower youth through the arts, education and civic engagement with programming that focuses on education, mental health, homelessness and performing and literary arts. SocialWorks directly impacts thousands of young people yearly while inspiring creativity, building dreams and advocating for youth success in all its forms.
“Chance the Rapper is a tremendous talent and inspiration,” said Ben & Jerry’s CEO Matthew McCarthy. “Through his flavor we hope to inspire creativity in the next generation and to spread the word about SocialWorks in a delicious way.”
