A map of favorite Ben & Jerry’s flavors has hit the internet. Naturally, we need to see what New England is scooping up.
This all comes courtesy of Sticker and Co., and it’s just in time for ice cream season. Of course, “ice cream season” varies for some people. For myself and my 14-year-old, “ice cream season” is whenever we feel like having ice cream. If it’s a cone from Cravings at Colonial Spa in December and a walk through the holiday lights in downtown Wakefield, so be it. We love ice cream, you see.
That being said, I know that’s not the case for most folks. For most folks, ice cream season is mid-spring through early autumn, with the peak falling during the summer months. And here in Massachusetts, there’s no shortage of fantastic ice cream stands and creameries. Now that I think about it, we might have to bring back our Game of Cones for a third season. Maybe next summer.
Favorite Ben & Jerry’s Flavors: What Does New England Love?
Turning our attention away from Massachusetts for a moment, let’s instead look north and then west to Vermont. Founded in Burlington in 1978, Ben & Jerry’s has become the gold standard for ice cream lovers in Vermont, New England, the United States, and the world. Their flavors are so wide-ranging and legendary they even have a flavor graveyard. I’ve been there. It rules.
But these flavors are not dead. These are the favorite Ben & Jerry’s flavors of ice cream lovers across America. Of course, as I mentioned earlier, I’m focusing on just the New England states and our favorites. But I’ll share the map of the entire U.S. too, just in case you’re curious. Oh, and if you’re also curious about my personal favorite flavor? I dig the dairy-free offerings. Don’t judge!
