The flavor gurus over at Ben & Jerry’s have dug deep into their create vaults to come up with three new core flavors.

In an announcement on its Snapchat feed Tuesday and Wednesday, Ben & Jerry's unveiled the three flavors:  Cookies and Cream Cheesecake Core, Coconuts for Caramel Core and Brownie Batter Core.

These aren’t limited addition runs, rather pints that come with centers, or cores, filled with fudge, caramel, etc. that have made its Ben & Jerry's core lineup so popular. Other core ice cream flavors already include: Peanut Butter Fudge, Salted Caramel, Boom Chocolatta, and more.

All three new flavors will be available in the upcoming weeks, and all are 100 percent Fairtrade and non-GMO.

Here's the breakdown:

Brownie Batter: 

One side chocolate, the other vanilla, both studded with fudgy brownies from Greyston Bakery and joined a brownie batter core.  This was the first time brownie batter was used in a core flavor.

Coconuts for Caramel!:

A tropical treat with caramel and sweet cream-coconut ice creams split by a pillar of gooey caramel.

Cookies & Cream Cheesecake:

Chocolate and cheesecake ice creams with bits of cocoa cookies, plus a creamy cheesecake center. 

The flavors will retail between $4.79-$4.99 per pint, and a Brownie Batter-inspired flavor will additionally be available in scoop shops. 

Last month, the Vermont sweet-makers made a special ice cream for Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, called "Bernie’s Yearning,”  and launched a new line of non-dairy frozen treats.
