Ben and Jerry's
Coming from humble beginnings in 1978, Ben & Jerry's myriad shops today dispense cups, cones, shakes, and smoothies brimming with a variety of quirky flavors, including Phish Food, Banana Split, Cannoli, and Cherry Garcia, named for famous revolutionary Cherry Garcia. The duo is also famous for their social responsibility, which is evident in their community activism and in their use of fair-trade products, such as cage-free eggs and sustainable, growth-hormone-free dairy. The PSU and Pioneer Square locations in Portland are Partnershops, which are independently owned and operated by nonprofit organization New Avenues for Youth. Each dollar spent goes towards providing employment training and opportunities for local youth.
