Ben & Jerry’s has been a freezer section staple for decades and rightfully so. The ice cream brand has stood out among its competitors thanks to its unique flavors and pint packaging designs.
Ben & Jerry’s has also been at the forefront of partnering with and honoring a number of celebrities over the years. In fact, the first celebrity-inspired flavor they ever launched was Cherry Garcia in 1987. Cherry Garcia, of course, was a nod to legendary Grateful Dead co-founder/singer/songwriter/guitarist/vocalist Jerry Garcia.
Most of the Ben & Jerry’s celebrity collaborations have had charity partnerships, which further supports the brand’s reputation for activism. Many charities have benefitted from these partnerships, which we explore below.
