According to our calculations, 2021 is finally here. Welcome! 2020 was a weird and wild ride filled with more chunks and swirls than we can count, and we can’t wait to see what this year holds.
We’ve made New Year’s resolutions in the past (and pretty tasty ones, at that), but this year we wanted to help you with your resolutions. Right alongside excersising more, finally finishing that novel and eating more broccoli, here are a few New Year’s resolutions for the ice cream flavour fanatic in you:
Item number 1
Dig Into 12 New Flavours
We know how easy it is to always reach for your favourites when you’re choosing your next Ben & Jerry’s tub. This year, take your spoon on a new flavour adventure every month. Never tried Netflix & Chilll'd or Phish Food? Give ‘em a whirl!
Item number 2
Always Keep a Tub On Hand
It’s late and you’re relaxing on the sofa when you feel the familiar pang of an ice cream craving. You locate your bowl and spoon. You prepare yourself for ice cream perfection. You open the freezer door. “Nooooo!” you lament, the freezer is void of all sweet treats. Not this year, though, not this year.
Item number 3
Add Ice Cream to Your Ingredient List
By now you probably know about all the amazing desserts (and breakfasts) you can craft from a tub or two of Ben & Jerry’s. But what about other meals? Could ice cream make a starring appearance at dinner? Could it find its way into a casserole? Push the boundaries of ice cream cooking this year, you flavour fanatic.
Item number 4
Recruit a Fanatical Friend
Since ice cream is a big part of your life, we hope you’re not enjoying it alone. Recruit your wildest, most passionate friend to join you in your ice cream endeavors. Trek to your local Scoop Shop for milkshakes. Compete to see who can make the craziest sundae or see who’s tried the most flavours.
Item number 5
Get Crafty With Your Tubs
With all the Ben & Jerry’s tubs you’re going to be emptying this year, you’ll have an opportunity to make some truly unique crafts. Turn an empty (and clean) tub into a tissue holder. Use one to hold pens. Collect a few dozen lids to make a wall hanging. The sky’s the limit, ice cream lover.
Item number 6
Spread the Love
Ice cream is about pure, unadulterated joy. And what better way to enjoy joy than to spread it around? This year, resolve to bring a tub of Chocolate Fudge Brownie to your kind neighbour. Or that quiet guy at work. Or your mom. (Definitely your mom.) And remember all the love you’re spreading just by enjoying ice cream from a company that cares about so much more than the bottom line.
Item number 7
Organize Sundae Sundays
What better way to keep in touch with family and friends than inviting everyone to virtual Sundae Sundays? Everyone stocks up on Ben & Jerry’s, and brags about the concoctions of the wildest, weirdest, yummiest toppings their household can think of. Experimental euphoria guaranteed.
Item number 8
Let Your Flavour Freak Flag Fly
It can be weird to be the only one at work who brings a pint of Half Baked for lunch every day. Or the only person you know who keeps a spoon on their person at all times. This year, give yourself the gift of acceptance. You are an ice cream lover, a fanatic for the sweet frozen fantasy that is Ben & Jerry’s. Keep it quirky, dear reader, and scoop your way into 2021 with reckless abandon.
