So Ben & Jerry’s has an actual Graveyard for their Discontinued Flavours

I‘ve never been to Vermont, but if I go, I know exactly where I’m headed: The Ben & Jerry’s factory in Waterbury. Why? To cross the Ben & Jerry’s Flavour Graveyard off my bucket list of course!

Tennessee Mud Ice Cream Headstone

Surrounded by a white picket fence on a grassy knoll, lie the headstones of especially beloved flavours or particularly despised flavours, some that were introduced as early as the late 1970s when the ice cream company was founded, but sadly met their untimely fate.

The folks at Ben & Jerry’s are pretty good at word play and each flavour has its own poetic epitaph. So let’s take a virtual tour of the graveyard, or should I say, Flaveyard?! (See what just happened there!)
