Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream!

By Jade Crandle

History of Ben and Jerry's

Ben and Jerry have been friends since childhood. They both had a love for ice cream and just could not find the right taste. Their journey began with the two of them in 1978. Ben and Jerry opened their first ice cream scoop shop in Burlington. From there they then began to distribute their ice cream to stores. After that- people kept asking for more so they opened their first franchise ice cream shop in Vermont. After all of this, their ice cream just continues to grow in popularity.
