    Again?! Perth just had this early last month or something!

  •  

    Can someone explain why Ben & Jerry's is so gritty? I had 2 tubs a few weeks back and it tasted ok but the texture was not as nice as Sara Lee or other premium ice creams.

    • +1 vote

      Looking the gift horse in the mouth?

      I don't find the icecream itself gritty, I think it has more mix ins which might be what you're getting - maybe just stick to plain flavours e.g. chocolate and vanilla?

      •  

        Not complaining about it being free, just not going to go out of my way to get it considering past experience.

        We had 2 different flavours and it was definitely not the mix-ins making it gritty.

        •  

          Sure it hadn't warmed too much and been refrozen? That's what usually makes icecream 'gritty'.

    I hope there won't be some d*** on Facebook telling us to go to the wrong end of Perth City this time…
    Its at QV1 he said…

    yes!! was good fun last time.

    look forward to it.

    YESSSSS. Missed the last one.. wasn't really prepared for it.

    This time: empty the freezer.

    Easier now we know what to expect. Hopefully they give out trays of tubs again too lol.

    •  

      tip from the brissy one from what i saw: dress for an office job and have a work pass. ask if you can grab some for work. they were giving people in front of me TRAYS! somone had 3-4 trays. I had boardies and a tshirt so don't think they'd have beleived me if i tried lol ;)

      •  

        Everyone in brissy was getting trays, regardless of dress code. They eventually created a second line for single tubs only, but the main line was for multiple trays

      •  

        I'll bring a lanyard, but there's an ice-cream scoop's chance in hell that I'll wear a suit!

  •  

    Melbourne again on a Monday, you'd think they would have learnt from the last time where they were very late on account of Monday traffic.

  •  

    Hope it comes to Adelaide again, last time was cool :)

  •  

    I heard at the Brisbane one a few weeks back, despite there being a queue, they were handing out cartons of tubs. Someone got six cartons!!??? So people end of queue missed out. Can't figure why they handed out multiple cartons.

    I stalked the truck last time.

    Scored two tubs in Perth, it was goooood! :D

    I wish they'd bring more flavours to Aust instead of holding these events.

    (Though I guess that's kind of against the OzB spirit…)

    PS: S'mores, Cinnamon Buns, Cheescake Brownie please.

    PSS: Thanks for bringing Americone Dream to scoop shops, but pints too please.

    Do you need to sub to their facebook? or anything to do with FB?

    • +1 vote

      Not last time, no.. but watching their FB for updates re: where the trucks will be is a plus.

      Don't think you need an account to do that, though.

    Ben & Jerry's 1 hr ago:

    Hi Melbourne. Nothing says "The best way to start the week" quite like FREE ice cream! Find us on the corner of Bourke Street and Elizabeth Street in the CBD

    • +2 votes

      Address not strictly correct. The truck is on Bourke Street nearer Hardware lane (between Elizabeth and Queen). It's opposite the Mcdonald's. Queue wasn't very long but suspect it will get longer for the lunch run. Only 1 flavour - Couch Potato. They will give out other flavours later - Clusterluff.

      •  

        Reading on facebook, they have run out. They have also said

        "Ben & Jerry's How long we stay largely depends on how many of our scooper fans turn up! We are looking to give away at multiple locations throughout the day, and we'll keep our fans up-to-date, so stay tuned…"

        so there may be more opportunities. People were allowed to take slabs if they could carry them :O

        •  

          Latest update is that they have decided to stay at the location (opposite the Mcdonald's on Hardware Lane), but they are running low.

  •  

    Just got some, giving 2 at least to everyone as they are 458 ml each

    Same location but Clusterfluff

    Sitting in my office eating out of a tub of ice cream. Co-workers probably think I'm super stressed.

  •  

    anymore update on what they've got? some odd flavors!

  •  

    Got 4 earlier they were giving 4 pp. Coach potato And cluster fluff

    I missed out on free BJs… :(

    Location in Brisbane today - 'Hi Brisbane. How's your Tuesday going? You know what would make it better? FREE ice cream at the corner of Sir Fred Schonell Dr & Coldridge St near UQ St Lucia Campus. We'll see you there!'

    •  

      Lets hope they come back to CBD sometime later today.

          Just now ·

          We're still at Southbank, herd! Find us on Russell Street near the Wheel of Brisbane. We're hoping to stay for around 25 more minutes before mooving on to the next location!

          Brisbane. We're now located at 307 Queen Street and running very low on the sweet stuff. Hurry down before we're all out!

  •  

    So for those who went to their last giveaways, and have been to their recent one as well.. did the B&J truck venture anywhere different the second time they hit your city?

    Or did they go pretty much to the same location/areas as their first giveaway?

        Hello lovers of the sweet stuff! We've had such an amoozing turnout at North Sydney Railway Station that we're running scooper low on ice cream. We'll be staying here until it's all gone - so now's a good time to get mooving! Find us on Blue Street!

  •  

    They tempted me so much with ice cream…I actually went and bought connoisseurs because they weren't in the city.

  •  

    that's it, seems to be no love for sydney cbd this time… :(

      There were lots of people catching the train from Wynyard to North Sydney, grabbing ice cream and then catching the train back while trying to hack into the tube with our plastic spoons. All up, took less than 30mins from Martin Place return, plus I got a cheap opal trip to count towards my 8 trips for the week.

    Stoked, managed to get two tubs!
    Got off at North Sydney then had to run the 4.5km home. Tubs weren't even close to melting when I got home, no idea how anyone managed to eat them straight away with those plastic spoons.

    Wow they're delicious too!
