Jerry typically stands to Ben's left when they are photographed, making it easier to tell the duo apart!
Ever wondered why our ice cream is the chunkiest in town? Well, apart from the fact that our chunks taste awesome, Ben suffers from anosmia (a lack of taste), so relies mostly on mouth feel and texture!
Snowy Vermont may not seem like the obvious choice for opening up an ice cream business... And you're right, at first it wasn't — when starting out, the pair realised competition for space was hot, so set up shop in Burlington and haven't looked back since!
The pair started up their very own foundation in 1985 and it's still going to this day! Each year we donate 7.5% of our annual pre-tax profits to support grassroots organisations who are doing good in their communities!
Ben & Jerry initially intended to start a bagel business, but found the equipment costs to be far too expensive! Just as well, or the dough in your Cookie Dough might not be so sweet...
Chocolate ice cream with fudge brownies? Yeah. That’ll do the trick
