Calling all Ben & Jerry’s ice cream fans! It is officially the sweetest time of year. Today, Ben & Jerry’s Scoop Truck kicks off its annual month-long tour in Los Angeles, giving away FREE scoops to loyal fans. The truck will be scooping its newest line of flavor innovations: Ben & Jerry’s Cores. And if that wasn’t enough, this year Ben & Jerry’s very own Storyteller, Doree Speidel, will be joining the truck crew, giving ice cream lovers the inside scoop on the truck’s winding path and reporting on all the things that make Los Angeles so unique from the people she meets, to the food she tries and the experiences she has throughout the month.
Now through June 26, the truck will be scooping out free super premium chunks and swirls at local community events, businesses and non-profits. Here are a few ways to cross paths with the Scoop Truck:
- Follow @BenJerrysWest on Twitter to see where the truck is dishing out free scoops near you
- Tweet @BenJerrysWest for the lucky chance to get scoops delivered to you directly
While giving away free scoops is nothing new for the Vermont-based ice cream company, the stops that the Scoop Truck will be making will be a little different this year. The Storyteller will be helping guide the truck ensuring it is hitting up unique and local areas of the city, and engaging fans for their recommendations on where to go.
“For the past few years we’ve been dishing out free scoops around the country to connect with our fans in local cities,” says Doree Speidel. “This year, we wanted to take it to the next level, and engage the community to make sure we’re experiencing first-hand what makes each city so unique. I’m looking forward to cataloging the latest Hollywood trends and new food fusions, while cruising through the hills of LA and scooping out treats for folks from Koreatown to the Santa Monica Pier.”
The 2014 Scoop Truck tour will feature two of 2014’s newest core flavors, including:
Salted Caramel: Sweet cream ice cream with blonde brownies and a salted caramel swirl
Hazed & Confused: Hazelnut and chocolate ice creams with fudge chips and a hazelnut fudge swirl
