Recently, I devoured a pint of Ben and Jerry’s ice cream.
Actually there is nothing unusual in that. I love ice cream, especially Ben and Jerry’s. My daughter, Robin, used to taste their many varieties of ice cream before they hit the open market. She lives close to their factory in Waterbury, Vermont. I still enjoy taking the tour although Ben and Jerry are no longer there. Their beginning and their follow through is a true success story.
I think that most ice cream, and all of their ice cream is delicious. Ben and Jerry’s is made with natural ingredients. The local family farmers who supply the milk and cream do not use hormones. The chocolate chip cookie dough, my favorite, took them 5 years to perfect. They add gobs of dough. This is a necessary indulgence.
