Ben & Jerry’s Free Cone Day is happening today and since 1979, it has been Ben & Jerry’s way of celebrating and thanking their fan for all their love and support.
On top of that, if you frequent Orchard for all your shopping needs, you will be pleased to know that Ben & Jerry’s has recently opened their first Flagship Scoop Shop in Southeast Asia at 313 Somerset Discovery Walk.
Ben & Jerry’s Flagship Scoop Shop will serve an exciting menu of 18 chunky, swirly, and euphoric ice cream flavours, alongside new shakes, sundaes, ice cream cakes, and a wider range of merchandise.
Staying true to providing fans the best possible ice cream made in the nicest possible way, Ben & Jerry’s is taking values-led sourcing local. Baked items like brownies and cookies and herbs like mint will be supplied by SCORE Bakery, which works to rehabilitate inmates through skills training, and social enterprise Edible Garden City, who are a group of urban farmers championing the Grow Your Own Food movement in land-scarce and import-dependent Singapore.
The new Flagship Scoop Shop will also be Ben & Jerry’s Community Action Hub where the company hopes to use fun and ice cream to inspire social involvement and progress locally.
A new Benefit Tuesday Night Programme, exclusive to the flagship, will run on a Tuesday every month, allowing various local welfare organisations to engage the public on their causes and during the 7-9pm event, Ben & Jerry’s will donate 20% of sales to feature social mission partners.
In addition, Ben & Jerry’s has partnered international food artist, Samantha Lee, to create a delicious Sundae that will celebrate Peace, Love & Ice Cream. Available only at the Flagship Scoop Shop until 31 August 2015, all proceeds will be donated to Ben & Jerry’s Benefit Tuesday Night partners!

Mark your calendars, it’s time to celebrate the Ben and Jerry-est day of the year!
Since its first anniversary in 1979, Ben & Jerry’s has thrown open the scoop shop doors and invited everyone and anyone in for a free cup or cone of ice cream. This annual Ben & Jerry’s celebration is a way for the company to have some fun and say thank you to ice cream-loving fans for yet another year of support.
Last Thursday, we were invited to an exclusive Ice-Cream Party at the Ben & Jerry’s Dempsey Scoop Shop and we totally enjoyed ourselves. The awesome people from Ben & Jerry’s hosted us with so much fuzzy warmth and love that it was a night down memory lane for both Baby and I.
During the Ice-Cream Party, there were games being played and in one of the games, participants were blind-folded and they have to guess the flavour of the Ben & Jerry’s Ice-Cream. Definitely not easy but certainly a doable task for a fan of Ben & Jerry’s!
When Baby and I started dating more than 2 years ago, our favourite hangout spot was the Ben & Jerry’s Heeren Scoop Shop. Indulging in Ben & Jerry’s Ice-Cream then was a weekly affair. When Heeren underwent a major renovation, our love for Ben & Jerry’s Ice-Cream never once dwindled. In fact, all thanks to the generous promotions that NTUC Fairprice occasionally has, we often buy two pints of Ben & Jerry’s Ice-Cream to indulge at home while watching our favourite dramas or movies.
Our two favourite Ben & Jerry’s Ice-Cream flavours are Chunky Monkey and Triple Caramel Chunk. Of course, there are also other flavours such as the Maple Tree Hugger and the Peanut Butter Cup that we fancy a lot.
Well, we hope we ain’t making you salivate at this point in time but we are really happy to announce that we’re one of Ben & Jerry’s Moolets! Hence, if you’re a Ben & Jerry’s Fan like us, you will definitely be able to find out the latest news and insights that are happening at Ben & Jerry’s on our Blog!
