Ben & Jerry's three additions to their dairy-free ice cream line. Last year, the ice cream giant released their first highly anticipated almond milk-based desserts. This year, to celebrate their vegan line's birthday, they've nearly doubled their dairy-free offerings.

Cherry Garcia, Coconut Seven Layer Bar, and Caramel Almond Brittle will be hitting shelves nationwide in mid-February. Our team got ahold of several samples for taste testing. While plenty of 58wang team members were hesitant to try something labeled vegan (we've been burned by sad flavorless dairy-free options before), they quickly came back for another sample, just to "make sure I'm tasting this right." In the end, a few co-workers were bartering (and fighting) over who would take the extra pints home, especially for the overall favorite: Caramel Almond Brittle.

While these products may be certified vegan, they're still no healthier than regular Ben & Jerry's ice cream, so moderation is still key. Read below for our reviews of the new trio of almond milk ice creams:

Caramel Almond Brittle

"Bourbon-y, very rich and creamy."
"Best vegan ice cream ever!"
"Very creamy! I like the salty pieces to break up the sweetness."
"Brittle has nice texture! A subtle crunch."

Coconut Seven Layer Bar

"My favorite! So creamy and smooth."
"Strong coconut flavor, variety with each bite."
"Not to sound like a stoner but this one is fire!"

Cherry Garcia

"Not my favorite."
"Rich dark chocolate flakes, real cherry taste only in the chunks of cherry."
"Not a ton of cherry flavor mixed throughout. Just alright."
"My favorite! Almond really compliments the cherry. Tastes sophisticated."
