Ben & Jerry's limited batch ice cream Chip Happens is finally being spotted at stores in the United States. The ice cream, in partnership with Netflix's baking show Nailed It!, is made with chocolate ice cream, fudge, and potato chips.
Chip Happens has been purchased at places like Walmart and Target, so you'll have to check your local supermarket for the super rare ice cream flavor. With the combination of ingredients, this ice cream is sweet, rich, salty, and crunchy all packed into each pint. Looks like it's about time to dig into this treat and get through my Netflix queue!

It’s always exciting when Ben & Jerry’s rolls out a new flavor, but the company recently released a new ice cream flavor that is pretty much guaranteed to get you excited.
It’s appropriately called Chip Happens, and it was actually inspired by Netflix's hilarious baking competition Nailed It! Instagram account @CandyHunting has the scoop.
“New Ben & Jerry's Chip Happens is heading to stores VERY soon!!” they wrote:
Well, it's actually already on shelves in Australia, since this one is a global launch. It will be in the U.S. any time now. The flavor is made in partnership with Netflix and the show Nailed It!, which is a competition series where amateur bakers try to replicate stylized cakes and other baked goods.
Each pint has a chocolate ice cream base, fudge chips, and swirls of crunchy potato chips coming together for a pint of salty-sweet, chocolatey heaven. Ben & Jerry's described it as "an ice cream as perfectly imperfect as the culinary masterpieces of Nailed It!"
This isn’t Ben & Jerry’s first time adding potato chips to ice cream: They also worked in the delicious combo with Jimmy Fallon’s The Tonight Dough. Those potato chips were actually covered in chocolate. This also isn't the first time they've teamed up with Netflix for a flavor: Earlier this year, the company released a Netflix & Chill'd flavor.
Just a heads up: The ice cream is a limited batch, so it won't be around forever. (Is it too soon to start a petition?) Apparently, the new ice cream has already started rolling out on shelves—one commenter said they saw it at Walmart, and it’s currently available on Walmart.com for $4.57.
