Thanks to this chain, everyone can enjoy chunky, funky ice cream with a clear conscience. – The Scene
It's not just about the ice cream. Ben and Jerry, two childhood friends from Vermont, built their empire on a great product laced with social awareness. Sit in this scoop shop, grab an unbleached napkin and gaze at the murals depicting hormone-free cows munching in green, organic pastures. While you're there, pick up literature supporting some local environmental causes.
What a difference pure, delicious ingredients can make. Favors include Chunky Monkey, Phish Food, Cherry Garcia and New York Super Fudge Chunk, just to name a few. Decadent sundaes swim in real hot fudge topped with fresh, homemade whipped cream. Cookies, brownies and waffle cones are lovingly baked each day in-house. For the light-at-heart, there are sorbet splashes--refreshing, fat-free fruit slushies.
Nice change of pace from Amy's – It's great to have choices. While I'm typically a fan of Amy's Ice Cream, I do find myself thinking of going to Ben & Jerry's nearly as frequent. That is a pretty high recommendation from an ice cream nut. The choices at the scoop shop are very similar to what you may find in the local grocery store, but there are a few additional delightful surprises I've never seen any where else. Try the Chocolate Therapy. There are also sundaes and smoothies, but I haven't gotten around trying those out yet...
