Summary "Chunky Monkey. Cherry Garcia. Phish Food. Truffle Kerfuffle. Chubby Hubby. Legendary ice cream makers Ben & Jerry are behind some of the wackiest, tastiest flavors we all know and love. It all began in 1965 when two groovy guys, Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield, met when they were twelve years old. Ben liked art, Jerry liked science, and they both loved food ... especially ice cream! They eventually started a business together, and with no idea how to actually make ice cream, they kicked it off with teamwork, determination, and an appetite for fun and experimentation. When the doors of Ben & Jerry's Homemade Ice Cream finally opened in Burlington, Vermont, crowds flocked. But the pair would still have a rocky road ahead-and ambitious, activist goals to fulfill. Chock-full of facts and humor, this entertaining biography about two hardworking partners living their Americone Dream gives readers plenty to chew on. Through their inventiveness, passion, and activism, Ben & Jerry dreamed of making the world a better, more delicious place-one scoop at a time"-- Provided by publisher
