About This Quiz
Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield are childhood friends and founders of the famous ice cream company, but did you know that Ben has a lack of sense of smell or taste? What the what? You may be wondering how someone without those vital things for eating can create such delicious ice cream. But that's where Jerry comes in. Penn State University is known for its sports, but it also has an ice cream making course at its on-campus creamery. That's where Jerry learned how to make ice cream. Since Ben couldn't taste or smell, he had to rely on the mouthfeel, meaning that you have him to thank for all the chunks and ooey-gooey additions to Ben & Jerry's ice cream.
Opening up their factory in Burlington, Vermont, the ice cream took off. They use local ingredients as often as possible, and when they can't, they use only Fair Trade certified ingredients. You may have noticed a little bit ago that some of your favorite flavors changed their name. That's because the original candy additions didn't match the standards that Ben and Jerry wanted for their ice cream. Pretty cool, huh? You can even go on a tour and get a free sample of a flavor at the Vermont factory. While there, brush up on your flavor knowledge! Until then, take this quiz to see if you can name all of these Ben and Jerry ice cream flavors!
