If you’ve ever had an ice cream from Ben & Jerry’s, you’ve probably faced the almost impossible task of choosing a flavor. While all the choices are delicious, the clever names are equally amusing. With flavors such as Cherry Garcia, Chunky Monkey and Empower Mint, your sense of humor is delighted before your taste buds go crazy. But what happens to the flavors that are no longer made? They are memorialized at the Flavor Graveyard at the factory in Waterbury, of course! Let’s take a look at some of the flavors that have been laid to rest, shall we?
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
There's no graveyard in the world like this one!
