Latest Ben & Jerry's news and reviews

Were it not a chain, B&J's would've done even better. Were it not ice cream, it could have done worse. Nichole just doesn't see the need for another ice cream joint on State Street with Chocolate Shoppe doing such a good job, but she'd much rather go to B&J's than Coldstone. JM just enjoys ice cream.

What B&J brings to the mix is a wide array of serving styles that go beyond even the dipped candy waffle cone, from JM's choice of waffle dish to Nichole's imprudent selection of the cookie sandwich - i.e., the pint of ice cream between to frisbees (it looked so manageable and cute on the poster).

Yeah, the ice cream is good, but the prices are outragous. Between Chocolate Shoppe on State St. and Cap Center selling pints of B&J for the price of a scoop, I just don't see the point.
