Ben & Jerry's popular ice cream flavor, pumpkin cheesecake, is returning in time for the fall season.

Ben & Jerry's pumpkin cheesecake flavor is making a comeback. 

Ben & Jerry's first sold this popular ice cream flavor in 2007. The company has been selling it in lmited batch pints during the fall season. 

BenJerry.com issued a press release on its pumpkin cheesecake flavor on Aug. 25:

"As much as summer lovers don't want to admit it, fall is on its way. The mercury is starting to drop at night, there's a hint of a crisp chill in the air, and we can't help but get excited for the golden glory of the fall. 

"Maybe part of that excitement is the return of the much-beloved, harvest-season limited batch flavor: Ben & Jerry's Pumpkin Cheesecake ice cream. 

"Making Ben & Jerry's Pumpkin Cheesecake ice cream starts with real pumpkin, of course. We're not big on simply pupmkin spicing our way to serious flavor, so we stick with the real deal. Adding a generous graham cracker swirl brings the loveable pint to the height of dessert perfection. 

"We know what you're thinking -- you saw a pumpkin flavor coming from all the way across the corn maze. And if pumpkin seems ubiquitous these days, that's because it is. This squash variety has become such a food beverage celebrity that we had to order our pumpkin a year in advance to ensure a piece of the action. 

"And not to brag, but we're 8 years into our own pumpkin romance -- we've been selling out of these Limited Batch pints since 2007."

Eric Fredette developed Ben & Jerry's pumpkin cheesecake ice cream. He explained to BenJerrycom why so many people love it. 

"The Pumpkin Cheesecake flavor is a perfect comfort food," he said. "It's like a warm blanket on a cool autumn day, with falling leaves and the crisp smell of fall."
