Move over Republicans, Democrats - There's a New Party in Town Promising And Delivering a Sweet Deal for D.C.

Ben & Jerry's Core Tour Delights the District with Free Scoops

BURLINGTON, Vt. - June 10, 2014 - (BUSINESS WIRE) - Calling all Ben & Jerry's ice cream fans! It is officially the sweetest time of year. Today, Ben & Jerry's Scoop Truck kicks of its annual month-long tour in the Nation's Capital, 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, Regan Cleminson, 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 D.C. so unique from the people she meets, to the food she tries and the experiences she has throughout the month.

Now through June 29, 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 @BenJerrysTruck on Twitter to see where the truck is dishing out free scoops near you
  • Tweet @BenJerrysTruck 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 D.C., 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 Regan Cleminson. "This year we wanted to further engage the community to make sure we're experiencing first-hand what makes each city so unique. In D.C., I'm looking forward to meeting Washingtonians, keeping a pulse on the Hill's hot topics, a late night visit to Ben's Chili Bowl, and strolling through Dupont Circle and Georgetown, among other things."

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

Fans can get online now to follow the truck on Twitter @BenJerrysTruck and check out BenJerry.com to follow the Storyteller's blog.
