OMG, the Five New Flavors of Ben & Jerry’s GREEK FROZEN YOGURT are Here! – Your “Indulgent Dessert,” Your “Reasonable Reward”

Wednesday, June 6th, 2012

Well, here they are, we in San Francisco are finally getting Ben & Jerry’s Greek Frozen Yogurt – it’s been spreading across the country from Vermont all year:

Can you match up the flavors based upon appearance?

Oh, and Strawberry Shortcake in your grocer’s freezer.

There’s a bit more protein and a bit less fat in this stuff, and it takes more milk to make, which is making the dairy farmers of Vermont very happy, I’m sure.

And oh, Ben and Jerry’s kicks ass – have I said that lately? Check their mission statement, if you’re looking for an example to follow with your startup / whatever.

Try the Banana Peanut Butter even if you aren’t a fan of either.

All the deets.

And best of all, if you Tweet them or Poke them, maybe they’ll show up at your office or whatever with some tasty free B&J.

Check it – these “happy gals” from Edelman Digital San Francisco (and some more over here at the San Francisco Bay Guardian) have already beaten you to the punch:

Via B&J

(In Soviet Russia, [You know, I’m going to have to issue a recall on my lame Yakov Smirnoff reference. What I want to say is something like, “In Soviet Russia, ice cream eats YOU.” But that doesn’t make sense. You know, I just haven’t heard enough of his material. Apologies.])

Hurray!

Free Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream in Haight Ashbury Produces a Familiar Scene

Tuesday, April 21st, 2009

Those in line for free Ben & Jerry’s ice cream in Haight Ashbury are being entertained by the Jugtown Pirates right now, so the ten minute wait is going all that much quicker.

This scene is about as crunchy as you could imagine. Click to expand:

Or TugTown Pirates, either way.

Some stores close as late as 9:00 PM, so there’s still time to get your share.

OMG! OMG! OMG! It’s FREE ICE CREAM DAY at Ben & Jerry’s!!!

Tuesday, April 21st, 2009

When you expected it least and needed it most on a hot one like today, be advised that it’s Free Scoop Day at participating Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream shops. Be sure to try new flavors like Mission to Marzipan and Peanut Butter Cookie Dough.

But make sure you finish your treat before you get back in line for another cone. Last year, these people got back in the queue immediately and finished up as they got to the door again. Bad form:

There’ll be five places in San Francisco for you to get your cone on. Click onward to see the locations for the South, East and North Bays on the jump page or just go here to see all locations in northern North America

Proper Etiquette When Waiting in Line for Free Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream

Wednesday, April 30th, 2008

What’s the first thing to do once you get a free ice cream cone on the birthday of Ben & Jerry’s? Eat it, of course.

But you might as well get back in line so that when you’re done eating you’ll be at the front and ready to choose another flavor. Some might take the time to finish their cones before queuing up to attempt to get some more, but carpe diem, you dig?

Your behavior might hack off the people behind you, but only slightly.  

The best way to pass the time waiting for free ice cream is eating free ice cream in an endless loop:

Speaking of free (or almost free) ice cream, Baskin Robins is having their 31 Cent Scoop Night today, April 30, 2008, starting at 5:00 PM. Sadly, not all BRs will offer this deal and you will be limited to buying only just ten cones.

(And there’s always frogurt from Tuttimelon, still having their temporary 99-cent special. If you swing that way)

Find a participating store near you or check this list below and after the jump:
