I cannot stress enough how much of a sweet-tooth I have. I could probably devour a stack of pancakes deluged in maple syrup, eat one or two chocolate bars as a simple dessert after lunch, and assemble a tall post-dinner sundae with everything including the cherry on top. (Not to mention the small bits of sweets I sneakily inhale between meals.) The whole point is that when there is an opportunity to eat something with sugar, I'm all for it. So recently, the Ben and Jerrys ice cream truck has been touring around cities and giving out free samples of ice cream. Check to see if you're city is part of the tour! Fortunately, Boston is one of these cities and they have been and will be touring throughout the month of August. How do you get yourself some good ice cream? Well, here's a hint:
That's right! All you have to do is follow @benjerrystruck on twitter and tell them where you think they should go. So the entire Likeable office tweeted them an ICE CREAM TRUCK load of tweets and long and behold, they came! They gave us three different flavors: Cookie Dough, Cherry Garcia, and my favorite Americone. They came in little sample cups with a mini spoon: it was too cute! Ben and Jerrys, what a smart move. It's a pretty good marketing tool: utilizing social media to accumulate more followers and also, introduce potentially new flavors. I've never tried the Americone before and after trying it, I think I'm going to buy a bigger tub next time. From the description, it is a sugary mixture of vanilla ice cream, caramel swirl, and fudge covered waffle cone pies. Does that not sound to-die-for or what? This is why we love you oh-so-much! Thank you so much for the ice cream, we all really appreciate it! COME BACK SOON!
