Hey everybody!! I'm pleased to say I've safely returned home from my most excellent trip to one of the coolest companies on the planet. It's probably going to take awhile to get all my thoughts into a post, but I would like to bring up a quick point. We heard all these great ways that Ben & Jerry's try to be a socially responsible company, but I wonder, do local businesses return the favor? Just around the bend from the tours taking place at the Waterbury production facility is a Shaws grocery store. Let's stroll down the freezer aisle and see what they have to offer.
It starts off just like any other Massachusetts store: Turkey Hill, Friendlys, Hood....
Nice! It's Gifford's of Maine! I've heard good good things about Gifford's, and check it out: it may be $6.99, but it's a REAL half gallon! I wish I had my spoon with me. (after that is some Breyer's)
Cool! Apparently they like Talenti around here.
Hmmmm, I'm at the end of the aisle, but no Ben Jerry's.... I'll just turn the corner and....
HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! I've never seen that much Ben & Jerry's in my life!
That proves it. Vermont loves Ben & Jerry's as much as Ben & Jerry's love Vermont.
