Two Vermont icons have joined forces to have fun and help others as the world spins toward the 2010 Olympic Games in Vancouver, according to OnTheSnow.com.
Ben & Jerry’s, Vermont’s legendary ice cream makers, have launched a new flavor named after Hannah Teter, gold medalist in snowboarding halfpipe at the 2006 Oympics in Torino, Italy. Proceeds from sales will benefit Teter’s charity, Hannah’s Gold, which supports humanitarian projects in Kenya. “Maple Blondie” is a maple ice cream with blonde brownie chunks and a maple caramel swirl. “Growing up in Vermont and making maple syrup with my family was very special, so selling maple syrup to help others is an amazing opportunity… we fit perfectly.” You can check out Hannah’s Web site (http://Hannah’sGold.com) for more information. Better yet, try the new flavor while you’re reading.
