Ben & Jerry's
Ben & Jerry's is one of the most popular store-bought ice cream brands around the world, but the origins of its deliciousness started in Shelburne, Vermont, where Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield opened their first franchise in 1981. 19 years later, the duo sold the company to Unilever, a multinational Dutch-British company specialized in consumer goods of all kinds. Today, Ben & Jerry's is famous for its creative ice cream names like Chunky Monkey, Peanut Butter Cup, AmeriCone Dream and Cherry Garcia.
