Giveaway: Free Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream

Ben & Jerry's Vermonster

BEFORE MOVING house, the only thing that was a regular feature in the freezer was a tub of Ben & Jerry’s. Me, I’m a big fan of their Coconutterly Fair ice cream, but when it comes down to it, I’m not going to refuse a helping of any of their range.

One of the more recent additions to the Ben & Jerry’s line has been the Vermonster, drawn from the Vermont homeland of Ben & Jerry’s. Not to be confused with the ‘Vermonster Bucket’ that sees some of the Ben & Jerry’s stores in the US which offers an enormous 20 scoops of icecream in a single bucket, the store bought Vermonster is a gorgeous maple syrup ice cream blended with caramelised pecans and caramel swirls that should go down quite well beside the fire for the autumn.

(As a side bar, if you’ve never tried maple syrup and white pudding together, you’re missing out – but that’s another story altogether).

Anyway, to mark all things autumnal and Vermonster, here’s your chance to get a free large up of Ben & Jerry’s, along with two Ben & Jerry’s shovel spoons to match.

I’ve got two sets to give away, so if you fancy trying a 500ml tub of Vermonster, or any other tub of Ben & Jerry’s for that matter, just leave a comment below. I’ll pick two winners Wednesday evening and have your goodies in the post to you by Thursday morning, giving you time to stock up for the bank holiday.

Winners will receive a voucher for a free tub of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream up to the value of €5.99, at any participating retailer. No change is given. Coupon valid until March 2013. Open to Republic of Ireland readers only. Competition closes 6pm Wednesday October 24. Winners picked at random. Vouchers in the post Thursday morning.

  • Alan Slattery

    Ben & Jerry’s is the only way to unwind after a day editing. Big tub, small spoon and Netflix.
    I may try the pudding and maple syrup! Another weird and wonderful food combination is toast with marmalade and cheese.

    • Ken McGuire

      @Alan – Your culinary combinations know no bounds!

  • LornaM

    Mmmm Ben & Jerry’s, would love some for the long weekend!

  • Niamh Finn

    Ken, Pick me! Pick me! I worked in Vermont at a kids summer camp back in ’99 and ’00. The Ben & Jerry’s factory was literally ‘up the road’. We use to have plenty of ice-cream parties and try all the flavours having visited the factory to see how it was made. The local town, Burlington, had a drive-thru Ben & Jerry’s! My favourite then was Phish Food. Now it’s Caramel Choclate Chew Chew. But I’m willing to use all my experience of tasting to see how The Vermonster holds up in comparison and get back to you on it! Memories……

  • Linda Callaghan

    Love Ben and Jerry’s!

  • Andrea

    Maple syrup & caramelised pecans sounds AMAZING…. Mmmmm….

  • Pauline Cummins

    I just adore Vermonster! I use it to fill big home made profiteroles, and top them with a drizzle of butterscotch sauce! I can’t tell you how good they are!!!!

  • Michael Holland

    I’d love to try out the Vermonster!

  • Elaine

    sounds like a good way for us to celebrate help Thanksgiving :O)

  • Ian Doran

    Hi Ken, I love Ben & Jerry’s…I’m having a really bad week so a free tub would surely see me through with a silver lining or spoon for that matter! Pretty please! :)

  • Philip B

    I don’t eat ice cream. So it seems only fair that I should get it, to avoid fighting within the group.

  • Philip B

    Also, dip mango in hummus for a delicious korma-esque snack.

  • Ken McGuire

    That’s it folks… entries now closed. Winners will be drawn shortly…
