If you’re trying to decide what to add to your pre-Passover shopping list, you may want to consider picking up some Ben & Jerry’s Charoset-flavored ice cream.

Kosher, and just in time for Passover, which starts in a little over a week, this ice cream flavour is sure to make the holidays even better… if you happen to be in Israel, that is.

Unfortunately for charoset fans, this flavour is only available in the Holy Land, but that doesn’t mean global ice cream fans can’t keep their fingers crossed.

Charoset, if you don’t already know, is a sweet tasting paste which is made from fruits and nuts, and is significant to the holiday of Passover. Although charoset comes in several different flavours and varieties, it seems that Ben & Jerry’s has decided to use the Eastern European version, which consists of apples, walnuts, cinnamon, and honey.

This isn’t the first time that Ben & Jerry’s, a Vermont based ice cream monolith, has released Passover flavours. Charoset-flavoured ice cream first hit shelves back in 2012 along with several other flavours. According to Elli Fischer, who reviewed the flavour for The Times of Israel, the dessert is “vanilla-based with apples and cinnamon, and lots of walnuts… [although it’s] definitely premium ice cream and quite tasty… [it’s] not very haroset-y.”

If charoset isn’t your thing, then don’t worry. According to the Ben & Jerry’s Israel website, there’s all kind of Passover flavours for you to enjoy, including chocolate, chocolate with walnuts, banana and walnut, vanilla, coffee, and Dolce de Leche.
