    do they have beer flavour?

  •  

    Seems like three flavours based on the ad, choc brownie, cookie dough & strawberry cheesecake.

    You could always add beer as an extra topping :)

    Sharing the love ice cream.

    I heard about this on the radio the other day but couldn't find any info on their facebook page at the time. I will be there!!!!

    yay free overpriced ice cream !

      It's bad being addicted to it at $11 a tub. When i was in USA it was still $6 USD so it's cheaper but not dramatically. One thing I miss was In America I could get chocolate fudge brownie which is a low(er) fat frozen yogurt version. I haven't been able to find the frozen yogurt range here.

        When we were over in the US, they were $2.50 USD on special. Needless to say we bought a whole bunch of tubs and stashed them in the freezer at the apartment. We never got to finish them all off, but we definitely gave most of the range a try.
        Couldnt believe how cheap they were.

        •  

          Wow - I would have stocked up at that price to. Cheapest I found was $5 on special.

        I miss Americone Dream. It is so much better than Jimmy Fallon's flavour :P

  •  

    Is there anything we need to do? Or can we just show up and ask about it? I cant find any 'instructions' as such…

    •  

      There will be set locations which haven't been announced yet. I recall a few years back they had them at king George square in brisbane and it was just a massive line up, but the line moved fast…. Although that was still around 30 minutes.

    •  

      They had one in Chatswood (NSW) in April and the line was soooooo long. Literally down the block. I think the line will be sufficiently long you won't need to state why you are there.

    Ahhh free, my favorite price.

        Do you need a new job? Do you want to earn half a pint of ice cream? Well then today's your lucky day, all you need to do is bring me a pint of ice cream and I will give you half in return :-)

    •  

      I'll be hanging around my CBD office, watching :P

  •  

    How does it work? BYO container, show up when venue is announced?

    • +2 votes

      I'm guessing they'll be handing out actual tubs of their ice cream… so unless you want to eat a pint on the spot (in which case, bring a spoon? unless they plan to provide spoons) - bring a cooler bag and ice packs? and get home or back to work fast to throw it in your freezer lol.

    •  

      When I got some 3 years ago it was at Railway Sq on the western side of Central Station - https://www.google.com.au/maps/place/Central+Railway+Station/@-33.8833324,151.2045872,59m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m2!3m1!1s0x6b12ae40f9b6dfef:0xdb660db4786ab77d!6m1!1e1?hl=en

      I suppose there aren't that many popular locations where are queue of 100s of people would be permitted.

    •  

      get more than one then:)

      I walked more than that for it, then I walked all the way to the quay so I could eat the best icecream looking at the best view, only managed to eat about 1/5 before I gave up and went home to freeze it, I did see people who ate the whole pint though hehe.

    No location is given. I don't have a day to hang around to go to a location for $10 of ice cream. Thanks for not a lot Ben and Jerry.

    Update -

    SYDNEY ICE CREAM LOVERS! Tomorrow the debate kicks off at 12pm. Should we be ‪#‎Sorry‬ or ‪#‎NotSorry‬? There's only one way to find out. Come and join us near Hyde Park from 12pm to grab a FREE pint, but be quick, you never know when we'll move to the next location…

    Yes they are still there, queue is about 30 people on each direction but it goes really quickly. Less than 5 mins wait.

    Thankyou so much OP! Without your post I never would have known, and would have missed out on the two pints of delicious chubby hubby I scored <3

    Moved to corner of Devonshire and Chalmers Streets in Surry Hills now.

    perhaps it's worth packing some ice packs in an insulated lunch bag if you're planning on stalking them around town ;)

  •  

    They're probably going to melt on me but they're still at Chalmers/ Devonshire giving away 2 per person!!

  •  

    Just checked and theyve left! =(

    scored a slab of 8 clusterfluff booya!

  •  

    Where are the Melbourne locations?

  •  

    Anyone knows the Melb location ?

    •  

      They haven't released it yet, running late. People aren't happy on FB :p

      •  

        Fair enough, I am scouting around the city atm, but no sign of them anywhere

        • +1 vote

          Yeah quite odd, they announced it before noon in Sydney and even a location hint the day before. Nothing at all so far for Melbourne and it's well past the time.

        •  

          Looks like I'll be late home for dinner.

          Hi our scooperstar fans! Monday traffic is the worst…
          We've had a few delays getting there, but rest assured that we will be in the city shortly! Thanks for your patience everyone. We'll keep you updated.

        •  

          Hope they're not going to just give 1 tub per person. I want a bag full for waiting.

        •  

          @tatnal: they gave out 2 per person in Syd. Given that they are late, we should expect at least 2.

        •  

          Maybe 1 of each flavour - I remember last time there were a few different flavours. Might be a mad rush.

  •  

    1.5 hour late in Melb and there is still no clue about the location :(

    Corner of Flinders Lane / Queen St. 3.5 hours late… 😑

  •  

    Thanks OP.

  • +2 votes

    They were giving out 8 packs at the start in melbourne - our office is stocked up!

  •  

    Saw people getting 8 tubs but I only got 2 :(
    Was few minutes too late

  •  

    Someone in our workplace won a truckload of Ben and Jerry's icecream. They were giving out by the slab!

  •  

    10 tubs scored

  •  

    Just scored two in Melbourne. The line was pretty feral…

  •  

    Got 2 tubs! Hell yeah.

    Pretty much out from what I saw, maybe a few stacks left for anyone considering going.

    Any hints on the locations for Adelaide?

    •  

      Keep an eye on the FB event.

    •  

      Adelaide is there now. Corner or Pulteney & Rundle St opposite Target:

      Hi Adelaide! We're currently at the corner of Pulteney St and Rundle St (Across the road from Target) handing out FREE pints of the sweet stuff! We'll cya there! FB Link

  •  

    Me and some workmates each scored a slab of 8 in Adelaide. The girl unloading the truck asked if we were going back to the office, when we replied yes she gave us a slab each. People started swarming and then she told them all to go to the guy handing out the singles. Lucky timing!
