Twitter Savvy Ben & Jerry's Scoop Truck Giving Away Free Ice Cream Across the Nation

By: Finance Foodie 


You know you’ve had that sudden urge for an afternoon pick-me-up treat, something sweet and refreshing, only to realize that you’re too busy to step out of the office for a few minutes and satisfy your craving. With Ben & Jerry’s latest outreach effort, you’re in luck! With a little social media savvy-ness and a worthwhile cause, you could have Ben & Jerry’s come straight to you to serve up scoops of peace, love and the company’s brand new, refreshing Greek Frozen Yogurt - just in time for an afternoon spring fling. 

From June 25th through August 3rd, the Ben & Jerry’s Scoop Truck will tour New York City, stopping at local businesses, non-profits and community events. While giving away scoops, cups and cones is nothing new for the Vermont-based ice cream company, the stops that it will be making – and more specifically, how those stops will be determined – are different. “Traditionally, when companies sample their product they stay at one spot, serve tiny little samples, and hope that consumers can find them,” said Jay Curley, Integrated Marketing Manager at Ben& Jerry’s. 


The truck will feature this year’s new Greek Frozen Yogurt line-up, which includes: 


Strawberry Shortcake: Strawberry Greek frozen yogurt with shortbread pieces 
Raspberry Fudge Chunk: Raspberry Greek frozen yogurt with fudge chunks 
Banana Peanut Butter: Banana Greek frozen yogurt with peanut buttery swirls 
Blueberry Vanilla Graham: Blueberry and vanilla Greek frozen yogurts with graham cracker swirls 


So get online! Follow the truck on Twitter @BenJerrysTruck and check out www.facebook.com/benjerry.  New York City isn’t the only stop on the truck’s tour. The truck was recently in Miami after spending several weeks in Washington, DC. Later this summer, the truck will visit Boston. To locate your favorite flavor or find a scoop shop near you, visit www.benjerry.com.

We went to the Ben and Jerry's factory on our honeymoon and got to sample a peppermint chocolate ice cream at the end of the tour. THAT is my favorite, but I've never seen it in any of the stores around here.
