Since 1978, the Ben and Jerry's flavor gurus have masterminded hundreds of unparalleled flavors that offer just the right amounts of sweetness, crunch and swirl. A pint of the sweet stuff is easy to house in a single sitting, and then it's gone. But  sometimes it's gone forever when Ben & Jerry's taunts us with limited-edition batcheswhich abruptly cease to exist for the rest of all time, no matter how beloved they are. 

While it's incomprehensible that any new flavor could beat out some of the now-defunct flavors below, it's hard not to reflect on our delicious past. Check out the most popular limited batch Ben and Jerry's pints, and tell us which one's your favorite in the comments.

  • 10 Cherry Garcia Greek Frozen Yogurt
    Ben & Jerry's
    Cherry Garcia ice cream, we pray, will always be a frozen aisle staple. It also exists in the form of frozen yogurt, but in 2014, when the Greek yogurt craze was at its height, Ben & Jerry's released this new version. The product was a bit puzzling; when compared to the regular frozen yogurt version, it contained less protein. Greek yogurt is known to have more protein than regular yogurt, so ... confusion abounds.
  • 9 Hannah Teter's Maple Blondie
    Ben & Jerry's
    The best award a champion snowboarder could ever earn is her very own Ben & Jerry's flavor. Vermont native Hannah Teter was rewarded with exactly this back in 2010, when she won the silver at the 2010 Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver. 

    The pint contained a blend of maple ice cream, blonde brownie chunks and a maple caramel swirl. 
  • 8 Candy Bar Pie
    Ben & Jerry's
    The name alone warrants this batch a spot on the list. As of September 2015, the peanut butter ice cream with fudge flakes, chocolate nougat and sweet and salty pretzel swirls is available in stores, so scoop it up while you still can.
  • 7 Fair Goodness Cake
    Ben & Jerry's
    While the play on words is certainly a stretch, this 2011 limited batch, composed of chocolate ice cream with German chocolate cake pieces and a coconut caramel swirl, is what chocoholic dreams are made of.
  • 6 Piña Colada
    Ben & Jerry's
    If you like piña coladas and getting caught in the rain, it'd be wise to eat this flavor indoors, as it's a limited batch and you wouldn't want it to get wet. The coconut ice cream with pineapple chunks appeared on shelved in 2013. We imagine it'd taste pretty dreamy mixed with a bit of booze.
  • 5 Key Lime Pie
    Ben & Jerry's
    A tangy lime-and-meringue swirl with bits of pie crust are the stars of the Key Lime Pie ice cream flavor. Despite its popularity, it was put to rest in the Flavor Graveyard in 2006.
  • 4 Schweddy Balls
    Ben & Jerry's
    It'd seem the combination of vanilla ice cream, fudge-covered rum and malt balls would cool you off, but for the brains at Ben & Jerry's, the mixture equates to Schweddy Balls. The controversially named flavor was born out of a popular SNL sketch, but survived for only a year before it was dead and gone.
  • 3 Cannoli
    Ben & Jerry's
    Made with creamy ricotta and pistachio ice cream, and scattered with chocolate-covered cannoli and roasted pistachios, this flavor landed itself in the graveyard. This late-'90s flavor was simultaneously adored and under-appreciated. 
  • 2 Scotchy Scotch Scotch
    Ben & Jerry's
    Butterscotch ice cream, butterscotch swirls and Ron Burgundy's mug all mixed up into one pint is a recipe for success. It's no wonder this "Anchor Man"-endorsed sweet ranks number two on the list.
  • 1 Peanut Butter Half Baked
    Ben & Jerry's
    You know the saying, "I hate to see you go but I love to watch you leave?" It doesn't apply to Peanut Butter Half Baked, which pairs one of Ben & Jerry's most classic, inimitable flavors with possibly the most addictive food the planet has to offer
