Voice Places is your guide to Ben & Jerry's in Houston. The brainchild of two self-proclaimed Vermont hippies back in the 1970s, Ben & Jerry's has grown into a worldwide ice cream empire. Despite being bought out by megacorporation Unilever in 2000, the brand has remained true to its crunchy roots by supporting various causes such as campaign spending reform and even the Occupy movement. Its scoop shops serve up all the B&J's classics, from wacky flavors named for jam bands (Phish Food and Cherry Garcia) to newer creations like the Stephen Colbert-endorsed Americone Dream, plus sundaes, shakes, smoothies and coffee drinks.
I cannot say enough about this place! I had the Cookie Cookie Sundae...it was AMAZING!!! Three warm cookies topped with 2 scoops of Chocolate Therapy Ice-Cream with Real Chocolate syrup (not the flavored kind that you get at most other places), whipped cream and a horde of toppings. The nice girl behind the counter kept saying: "Would you like more toppings on your sundae"; I played along 4 times. No extra charge. Service is EXCELLENT; so is the Ice-Cream. Am I glad that Houston has a Ben & Jerry's Ice-Cream place of its own. I cannot wait for my next visit when I can try their Brownie Special Sundae. My boyfriend had the 'Half Baked' Ice-Cream Shake - it was a combination of Milk & Cookies & Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice-Creams, blended to perfection! He loved it. Just be prepared to wait though, especially on the weekends as this is a busy place. Oh, by the way, I found 2 of my favorite B&J flavors in pints here - Chubby Hubby & Oatmeal Cookie. I had been looking for these for ever at the grocery stores and could never find them. I am super Exited!!!
