Ben and Jerry’s was founded by Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield, who met when they were in Junior High School.  They have been friends ever since then.  Ben and Jerry’s makes all natural ice cream in “euphoric concoctions”.  They also are very aware of the central role that business plays in society.  They make a huge variety of flavors of ice cream.  The newest is called “Stephen Colbert’s Americone Dream Election Edition Superpack”.  It has vanilla ice cream with fudge covered waffle cone pieces and a caramel swirl. Packages have a note from Stephen Colbert printed on the back.  Some of their best known flavors include Chunky Monkey, Cherry Garcia, Vanilla, Milk and Cookies, Phish Food, Late Night Snack, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, and many more.  Ben and Jerry’s also has a line of FroYo, which are made from low fat frozen yogurt.  Choose from FroYo flavors like Cherry Garcia, Chocolate Fudge Brownie, Half Baked, or Phish Food.  They also make Greek Frozen Yogurt flavors like Banana Peanut Butter, Raspberry Fudge Chunk, Strawberry Shortcake, and Blueberry Vanilla Graham.  You cannot buy Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream from their website.  This means that the price could vary depending on where you purchase it at.

At first glance, you might not think of ice cream as the most healthy choice for a snack.  Ben and Jerry’s uses natural ingredients, which makes them a bit more healthy than some other brands of ice cream.  Milk is a good source of calcium, which helps your body to grow strong bones, and vitamin D, which helps your body to absorb calcium.  Their low fat FroYo flavors might be a bit better for people who are trying to lose weight.  Ben and Jerry’s have their headquarters in South Burlington, Vermont.  You can take a tour of their factory.  Check out their Flavor Graveyard, which memorializes all the Ben and Jerry’s ice cream flavors that have been retired, (and that some people really miss).

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
