Atlanta is at a standstill from one whole inch of snow and Russian eyelashes are freezing as temperatures in the country’s western regions reach -88.6 degrees Fahrenheit. Yet, somehow, when winter is being naughty outside, the nicest thing is a cold, comforting pint of ice cream.

Following this undeniable logic, Ben & Jerry’s released an extra-timely line of new flavors on Tuesday, spanning three different product types. The “Pint Slices” are getting three new flavors and the company’s vegan lineup is growing from seven to nine, while an all-new “Truffle Pint” is gracing freezer shelves, offering softly textured confectionaries in each bite.

The Truffle Pints are just as they sound: pints of ice cream, jam-packed with truffles. The Chocolate Shake It features chocolate milkshake-flavored ice cream with chocolate cookie-covered fudge truffles and a healthy dose of marshmallow swirled in. A Caramel Chocolate Cheesecake has caramel chocolate ice cream with chocolate cookie swirls and—get this—cheesecake truffles coated in graham cracker crumbs. Last but not least is the Chillin’ the Roast, the company’s first-ever cold brew coffee ice cream, featuring fudge swirls and coffee liqueur truffles covered in chocolate cookies.

The Pint Slice is a no-wooden-stick ice cream bar, coated in chocolate, that puts your favorite pint in the palm of your hand. The company already sold flavors like Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough and Colbert’s Americone Dream, but now fans can revel in the portability of Cherry Garcia, Tonight Dough and Coffee, Coffee BuzzBuzzBuzz, which matches fudge with chocolate-covered cocoa nibs.

To the delight of vegans everywhere, Ben & Jerry’s is throwin’ down two new dairy-free flavors, expanding the line to include non-animal versions of the flavors everyone knows and noms down on. Got a craving for Peanut Butter Half Baked, but gave up cow milk? You’re in luck! Stricken by conflict over those gooey Cinnamon Buns? Feel guilt no more!

"As a foodie at home AND at work, I'm inspired to come up with creative new combinations like a cold brew coffee-based Ben & Jerry's flavor,” said Ben & Jerry’s “Flavor Guru” Craig Koskiniemi. “These are guaranteed to keep the love of ice cream strong."

So grab some mittens and your snuggie, because the cold winter is about to hit you in the belly.
