Ben & Jerry's New Core Sundae Flavors Have Finally Reached Houston

Almost two months ago, I read that Ben & Jerry's had released a new line of ice cream designed to approximate a sundae in a pint. These four "core" flavors (That's My Jam, Peanut Butter Fudge, Hazed and Confused, Salted Caramel) would involve multiple types of ice cream, chunks, and, most importantly, a center vertical "core" of liquid topping. As a huge fan of sundaes, I was EXTREMELY excited.
I promptly began looking for the core flavors when I went grocery shopping (nearly every day), but neither Fiesta, H-E-B, Kroger, or Randall's had them in stock. At one point, I put out an APB on my professional Facebook page for the ice cream but failed to get a response. I guess people were too busy following coverage of the Ukrainian crisis or some sports tournament. #priorities?
Then, suddenly, the "new" core flavors appeared this month in the Buffalo Speedway H-E-B. Or, more accurately, "disappeared."

I saw only the price tags (3/$9-on sale!) for the Peanut Butter Fudge, Hazed and Confused, and Salted Caramel pints, as the shelves had already been ravaged. A few squished pints of That's My Jam remained, some rather haphazardly lying in the wrong flavor section, which I took as further evidence that the core flavors had been snatched rather violently from the freezer case by enthusiastic shoppers. Not that I should judge, given that I would have been among them if I had arrived earlier.
