Most of the time when I think of Ben & Jerry’s Ice cream I think of crazy flavor options. But what’s at the basis of most of those flavors? It’s just plain vanilla ice cream and you have to start out with good ice cream for your concoction to taste good too.
Co-founders Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield knew there needed to be a creamy, delicious ice cream that could stand on its own before adding any chunks and swirls. Since 1978 the duo stirred up every imaginable flavor combination – many that had never been tried before. Still, Greenfield and Cohen are quick to point out that the first flavor an ice cream maker must perfect is the one without any chunks or swirls whatsoever. That’s why their first flavor was: Vanilla.
I really do love ice cream and could eat it at any time. Vanilla is nice because it’s so versatile, a complement to pie, banana splits, shakes, and sundae’s. YUM! Ben & Jerry’s Vanilla ice cream is made with fresh wholesome milk from Vermont Family Farmers and Fair Trade vanilla beans, meaning that third world farmers are paid a fair price for their harvest. Ben & Jerry’s vanilla mixes rich and creamy taste with socially conscious business, making the flavor a sweet treat for all!
You may even be surprised to learn that Ben & Jerry’s plain old Vanilla has won tons of awards and accolades over the years and Vanilla is the best-selling flavor in Ben & Jerry’s Scoop Shops nationwide. So that being said, just in time for Thanksgiving, I’m teaming up with Ben & Jerry’s to offer you a reader giveaway for the perfect holiday pie complement: Ben & Jerry’s Vanilla Ice Cream.
