National Ice Cream Day is happening this Sunday, and we thought it would be fun to scoop you up some fun facts about RIT’s very own Ben & Jerry’s shop!
Currently the only B&J’s in Upstate NY is located on our very own campus inside the SAU next and began serving up its delectable flavors since it’s grand opening back February 14th, 2002.
Every year, B&J’s chooses one day to spread the love of ice cream by giving free cones as a huge “thank you” to it’s customers. This year’s happened last April and RIT served 5,112 cones and raised $388.86 for Margaret's House.
RIT’s Ben & Jerry’s, although small and mainly run by students, has dozens of inclusive flavors to choose from like Gluten Free and Dairy Free options.
In 2014 during Brick City Homecoming & Family Weekend, the very own Jerry Greenfield came to visit campus and talk in the Saunders College Gasser Lecture Series.
Every Friday this summer you can enjoy 50% off your purchase! Hours are 11:00am - 2:00pm. Perfect for an afternoon snack.
For 15 years we’ve had easy access to the finest quality all natural ice cream in the U.S. Take a look at what Ben & Jerry’s looked like 7 years ago in 2010! Have you had any ice cream yet? What’s your favorite flavor?
