Ben and Jerry's Across America


Ben and Jerry's  ice cream was started in 1978 by friends, Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield, after taking a $5 correspondence course in ice cream-making from the Pennsylvania State University.  They opened their first shop in a renovated gas station in Burlington, Vermont.

Ben and Jerry's has over 200 locations in the United State but have many others all over the world in addition to selling their ice cream in most major grocery chains

Raison d'etre: make extremely rich (high butter fat) ice cream using natural ingredients and make unusual flavors whose names are a play on words and or taken from popular culture.
