If you're ever in the New England area, one of the places that you can visit is the Ben & Jerry's headquarters in Waterbury, Vermont. There's a factory tour, a ice cream parlor, and a gift shop with beach towels, t-shirts and even ice cream-flavored lipbalms!
Another place you can visit while you're there is the Ben & Jerry's Flavor Graveyard, where the founders honor the unique flavors they've had to 'put to rest' in the company's nearly-40-year history.
I am a HUGE fan of Ben & Jerry's - specifically when they release limited edition flavors. Because of this, I've compiled a list of my favorite flavors of the Ben & Jerry graveyard.
Do any of you remember these?
Rum-spiked vanilla ice cream with chocolate-covered rum and malt balls. It was named after one of Alec Baldwin's most popular SNL skits!
(1997 - 1998)
Mascarpone ice cream with chocolate-covered cannoli shell pieces and a swirl of mascarpone cheese. Not as good as Schweddy Balls, but definitely a win!
(2005 - 2010)
Sweet cream ice cream with chunk of chocolate cookie, a swirl of chocolate fudge, and MINIATURE CHOCOLATE DINOS. How did this even get discontinued?!
(2006 - 2008)
Coffee liqueur ice cream with chocolate cookie crumb swirl and miniature fudge cows. What's with the ones with the mini chocolate creatures getting killed off?
(1993 - 2001)
Caramel, cashew, and Brazil nut-flavored ice cream with a chocolate hazelnut swirl and roasted almonds. Yo, there's practically NUTELLA in there. How could anyone say no?
So what's YOUR favorite Ben & Jerry's flavor?
