Ben and Jerry's ice cream brand had humble beginnings. One of the main goals was to create the ice cream with the most chunks. This was, in part, because of Ben Cohen's complete lack of a sense of smell or taste. They had to make the chunks chunkier so that he could at least feel them in taste-testing the ice cream. Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield opened their first shop in a renovated gas station in Burlington, Vermont in 1978 and that started the phenomenon. One of their most popular flavors, chocolate chip cookie dough, was suggested anonymously by a fan. The ice cream pair figured the consumers would know best what kind of flavors they'd want to eat, so why not take their suggestions?
With so many flavors, some heading to the flavor graveyard and new ones coming out every year, one of them is bound to match your personality. Maybe you match a flavor that's more salty than sweet because you have a more practical and sometimes cynical outlook on life. Perhaps you're the classic cookie dough or the adventurous Americone Dream. You can like to eat as many flavors as you want, but only one really matches your personality. Which one is it?
