The Curious Gastronome
Long before Haylee was dreaming up new and unexpected ways to make your taste buds happy, she worked as a Seasonal Tour Host in our Waterbury, Vermont factory. Maybe it was there, watching delicious ingredients being transformed into otherworldly ice cream, that Haylee first began to imagine life as a Flavor Guru. First though, she earned a BA in international relations, went on to earn an MBA, and did a whole bunch of studying on gastronomy because, she said, she’s “fascinated by the intersection of food and culture.” What a coincidence: so are we! Haylee eventually returned to her beloved factory, making the exclusive flavors that visitors get to sample at the end of the tour. Have you ever tried any of her favorite small batches, like ChocoBanana, Caramel Apple, Maple Hippie, or Peace, Love, & Lemons? She told us that she especially loves seeing people taste Ben & Jerry’s ice cream for the first time ever. Flavors like those must put a lot of smiles on a lot of faces.
