Ben & Jerry's: rolls out liquid-filled ice-cream

Ben & Jerry's is mirroring rival Haagen-Dazs by launching its own liquid centre mini ice-cream pot, which will debut in Tesco later this month.

Ben & Jerry's Core will launch in three flavours – Karamel Sutra, Doughable Whammy and Berry White.

Each 500ml pot will cost £4.99.

The pots have a soft core of chocolate truffle, chocolate fudge or caramel sauces, and two flavours of ice cream.

Ben & Jerry's Core will initially launch in Tesco, followed by a wider rollout in other supermarkets.

It is unclear what level of marketing support Unilever will accord the brand.

Ben & Jerry's Core is a similar offering  to Haagen-Dazs' Secret Sensation tubs, which launched earlier this year.

Last week, Unilever said it spent an extra £124m on advertising and promotions in 2011, making a total of £5.13bn.
