We talk about compassionate alternatives to immigration detention existing, but it’s often not clear what this actually means!. This blog from the King’s Arms Project lifts the lid on their compassionate, community based alternative to detention.Read More - A Community-Based Alternative to Detention: The Advice Service Read More
1. Cherry Garcia
Back in '86, a fan over in the US left the idea for Cherry Garcia on a board in her local scoop shop... a flavour suggestion we knew we couldn't ignore! Having had our flavour gurus tinker around in the kitchen, and come up with the classic flavour we know and love today, we just had to track down our anonymous flavour suggestor. And once we'd found her, we finally awarded her with a year's supply of ice cream and place in our hall of fame — much deserved!
2. Satisfy My Bowl
We've been mixing music with ice cream for decades, and to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the legend, Bob Marley, we created Satisfy My Bowl. Whilst busying in the kitchen, we asked our fans to suggest a 'Legend'-ary name for our latest creation... Camilla Bishop did just that; her winning entry inspired by Marley's classic track, "Satisfy My Soul".
3. Chubby Hubby
Driven mad by their Ben & Jerry's obsessed boss, Tom, two office workers decided to create their own make believe flavour (Chubby Hubby) just to baffle him. But, with just one taste, Tom proclaimed it too good to be a joke! The colleagues sent us a letter sharing their story and we knew we had to taste it ourselves... the rest is hubby-history — it's no joke!
4. Fairly Nuts
In 2009, we launched our "Do The World A Flavour" competition, asking fans to submit their flavour suggestions. Our lucky finalists were whisked off to the Dominican Republic, where they visited a Fair Trade Farm and met our lovely co-founders, Ben and Jerry, who later crowned Toni Gunnison our supreme winner!
5. Apple YUM-Ble
At Ben & Jerry's we know that crumble and ice cream are a match made in heaven... so, when Meryl Logan sent in her "Toffee Apple YUM-ble" creation, we couldn't resist whipping up a batch! Unfortunately, not all our fan flavours make it to freezers... but that doesn't mean our flavour gurus keep all the ice cream goodness to themselves; they concoted a limited-batch of Meryl's flavour and sent it over for her to enjoy!
