It’s the best day of the year—Free Cone Day at Ben & Jerry’s! Last year, we suggested some potential Jewish flavors, and, below, we have a few more. Don’t forget to leave yours in the comments!

Sephardic Stew: Saffron ice cream with raisins.

Afikomen Delight: Chocolate ice cream with exactly one piece of matzah per pint.

Yerushalayim Shel Pecan: Caramel ice cream with real pecans and pie crust.

Bernard-Henri Berry: Burgundy ’82-flavored ice cream—it’s a fine vintage—with blackberry swirl.

Lamb’s Blood Orange Sorbet: This is actually just blood orange sorbet.

Trayf: Bacon bits and mascarpone cheese and vanilla ice cream, for those who define their Jewishness by eating non-Jewish food.

The BDS: Blueberry ice cream, dark chocolate chips, and a swirl of caramel, served in a flotilla-shaped cup.

Lieberman Surprise: Actually just Chunky Monkey.

Goldstone Stonecold: Crow-flavored.
