  • Ben and Jerry's Boise
    It was 1978. A college dropout and a failed medical-school applicant had just brought together their combined life savings to rent an old gas station. Their plan was to resurrect the empty station and open their own restaurant. Their specialty: ice cream. So begins the story of legendary entrepreneurs Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield, who are better known across the globe as Ben & Jerry. Their small, old-fashioned ice-cream parlor eventually became a Burlington, Vermont favorite, and before long, shops popped up all over the U.S. and in 25 other countries. Their brand easily attracted customers––homemade ice cream churned from wholesome, natural ingredients and blended into creative flavors. Some of their popular scoops include Cherry Garcia, Chunky Monkey, and Coffee Caramel Buzz. Since infusing their first rich and creamy batches of ice cream with natural chunks of fruit, nuts, candies, and cookies, Ben and Jerry have also operated with a commitment to improve the quality of life locally, nationally, and internationally. They practice sustainable food production and business practices that respect the earth and environment. Ben & Jerry’s cartons are made from FSC-certified paper, which comes from forests that are managed for the protection of wildlife, and waste from Ben & Jerry’s plants generates energy to power farms. The company works tirelessly to reduce its carbon emissions; it strongly encourages customers to eat their ice cream in the darkest dark.

  • Goody's Soda Fountain & Candy Stores
    Within a shingled Hyde Park cottage, an original soda fountain from the 1930s—complete with silver faucets and a mirror-inlaid bar—has dispensed handmade ice cream since 1984. Today, Goody's Soda Fountain & Candy Stores models its housemade cones after krumkake—Scandinavian waffle cookies—and fills them with rotating flavors of ice cream churned in small batches every day. Cold meets hot with toppings such as housemade hot fudge and bittersweet, which contains twice as much chocolate as traditional hot fudge. Goody's also pulls shots of espresso from a coffee bar and fills glass jars with more than 50 flavors of Jelly Belly jellybeans. The shop celebrates holidays with seasonal treats such as Valentine's Day chocolate assortments, chocolate bunnies for Easter, and portable voting-booth snacks for Election Day. On hand to help navigate the ever-changing selection is a “helpful staff . . . as sweet as the candy,” according to Boise Weekly. Guests slurp up their sweets amid the chocolate-brown and cream-white antique decor or, in the summer, on a garden patio hedged in by flower boxes.

  • Aspen Leaf
    At Aspen Leaf Yogurt, customers create custom cultured confections by mixing and matching a variety of self-serve frozen yogurt flavors and toppings. Each milky masterpiece weighs in at the register, allowing yogurt lovers to control how much they pay and how much brain freeze they'll voluntarily endure ($0.42/oz.). The well-trained machines tamely dispense more than 14 rotating flavors, including nonfat, sugar-free, and dairy-free options, and each bowl of creamy goodness provides a healthy dose of bone-building calcium and probiotics to aid digestion and boost the immune system. Complement yogurt's natural wholesomeness with a smattering of fresh fruits such as kiwi, strawberries, and banana, or heap it with candy pieces from Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory in a decadent desecration of a postparka-season diet.
