Cherry ice cream with cherries and fudge flakes. It’s our tribute to guitarist Jerry Garcia and his fans everywhere, and it all started with a piece of fan mail.
You see, back in the day, before smart phones and social media, our fans spoke to us via handwritten notes pinned to the bulletin boards at our Scoop Shops. It was sometime in 1986 when one such fan was persistent enough to mail a postcard to our main office in Burlington, Vermont. Super premium ice cream meets great guitar solos? It was genius, and Ben immediately began creating the iconic concoction.
Cherry Garcia debuted in 1987 and quickly became one of our top three most popular flavors. In fact, the first eight ice cream pints went straight to Mr. Garcia himself and were met with two thumbs up! As for the fan who sent the anonymous postcard? Our sleuths found her and thanked her with a trip to Vermont and a year’s supply of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream.
It’s been a long, strange trip ever since, but what remains is Ben & Jerry’s commitment to producing the world’s best frozen desserts in the most responsible way possible. Like all of our flavors, Cherry Garcia is made with non-GMO sourced ingredients, cage-free eggs, and Fairtrade certified cocoa, sugar, and vanilla. Responsibly sourced packaging gets the goodness from our Vermont factory to your freezer.
A product that has an unqualified independent third-party certification related to the product being made in accordance with fair trade principles in which fair prices are paid to producers in developing countries.
