When we were younger, my sister and I loved to make up our own games. Our favourite by far was hairdressers, and we'd sit for hours in our bedroom chopping at our dolls hair, whilst sharing a tub of Ben & Jerry's and dreaming of opening our own salon.
Luckily, neither of us are hairdressers now, however we do still share the odd tub of Phish Food from time to time.

Ben & Jerry's was always the perfect 'with a movie' treat for me, but if I was sharing, there were rules! On a Friday night, my best friend, Abi, and I would head down to Blockbuster's to rent a video and pick up a tub of Cookie Dough. When we got back, we'd watch the film and split the tub 50/50. Abi was one of the only people I trusted to go halves with, but we had an agreement: hand the tub over after each mouthful!

The Journey Home
The long and boring journey from lectures to my University halls was always one I dreaded. But when I discovered Ben & Jerry's tucked away in a corner shop freezer, that all changed. After that, Ben & Jerry's became my travel companion and my journeys flew past.
The best (or worst!) bit about it is that I'd always forget a spoon, meaning that I'd enjoy the entire tub with my finger!

My earliest memory of Ben & Jerry's was when I met my now wife at University. To justifiy a night in, I'd show up at the door with a tub of Phish Food... she'd forget all about the idea of date night and we'd cuddle up on the sofa to share a tub.
To this day I still use a tub of Ben & Jerry's as a bribe; except now it's more to make up for the myriad of things I do wrong!

An original Gas Station Scoop Shop flavour, Jerry used to buy whatever candy was on sale to put in the ice cream. It was so popular, it became a full time flavour.
Chocolate ice cream with fudge brownies? Yeah. That’ll do the trick
