Usually, eating Ben & Jerry’s is nothing but euphoria. That sweet, creamy ice cream. Those indulgent chunks. The quirky flavor names and bold flavor combinations. It’s a delicious ride from start to finish.
Except when it’s, well, not. Sometimes you encounter some pint problems. It’s okay, we’ve all been there. Sometimes it’s a struggle to be a Ben & Jerry’s lover, but the struggle sure is worth it. How many of these pint problems have you endured to reach ice cream nirvana?
Item number 1
The Frozen Flier
It’s unrealistic to expect hungry ice cream lovers to wait 10 whole minutes for a pint to soften up. So inevitably this happens.
Item number 2
But don’t worry, Fido’s got it. Maybe don’t put this one back in the freezer.
Item number 3
We all have that one friend who drills into your shared pint and selfishly digs out all the chunks. We tell them to get their own pint.
Item number 4
Hide Your Stash!
There’s nothing worse than finding out your roommate or spouse has stolen your Ben & Jerry’s. We suggest a vegetable camouflage system to prevent future infractions.
Item number 5
We’ve tried to bend the laws of physics to make our ice cream soften faster, but, alas, have been unsuccessful. All we’ve managed to bend are our poor spoons.
Item number 6
Maybe if you reorganize the flavors? Or move the Chocolate Fudge Brownie to the door? It’s sad but true: your freezer has a limited pint capacity.
Item number 7
Coming Up Empty
You could swear you had pints in here. But all you see is the void. The empty space where once there was sweet, sweet euphoria.
Item number 8
In the summer, those chilly pints might be a blessing. In the winter, you’ll need to insulate your digits before you dig in.
