Having an ice-cream flavor named in your honor is considered one of America's greatest accolades, along with winning a Tony award for Best Use of Laser Pointer in a Musical. Today's Groupon fills ice-cream chambers with famous flavors: for $5, you get $10 worth of frozen treats at Ben & Jerry’s Scoop Shop in Palm Springs.
Ben & Jerry’s shops offer a variety of frozen concoctions, from classic triple-scoops ($4–$5), smoothies, and milk shakes ($5–$7) to waffle-cone specials ($5) and sundaes ($6.50). Swirl spoons around scoops of Ben & Jerry’s famous original flavors, such as Cherry Garcia, Triple Caramel Chunk, Chunky Monkey, Chocolate Therapy, Milk & Cookies, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, and limited-edition Pumpkin Pie. Every flavor of ice cream can also be transformed into a thick, sippable milk shake, and low-fat, fat-free, and dairy-free flavors are also available for the figure-conscious or those still suffering from butterfat-related night terrors. A variety of frozen yogurts and sorbets satisfies sweet teeth without breaking oaths to the tooth fairy, and real fruit smoothies appear in suave suits of Banana Cream Pie and Strawberry Lemonade.
Ben & Jerry's
Ben & Jerry's came from humble beginnings—in 1978, its eponymous founders served ice cream out of a renovated Burlington gas station, and delivered pints of their now-classic flavors to grocery stores out of the back of Ben's VW Squareback wagon. Today, its myriad shops dispense cups, cones, shakes, and smoothies brimming with a variety of quirky flavors, including Phish Food 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.
