Vermont Favorite Ben & Jerry’s to Open in Bellevue Square

The fresh and sometimes surprising flavors of Ben & Jerry’s will soon be available at The Bellevue Collection. Scheduled to open April 2016, the new ice cream classic will be located across from McDonald’s on the first level of Bellevue Square.  The new store will feature the full selection of long-time favorites as well as new additions such as the new flavors of

non-dairy frozen desserts like Chocolate Fudge Brownie, P.B. & Cookies, Chunky Monkey and Coffee Caramel Fudge in pints. Known for its innovative flavors with colorful names, the Bellevue Ben & Jerry’s location will not disappoint. Two of its latest flavors – Brownie Batter and Bourbon Brown Butter – add to the array of tasty delights.

“Ben & Jerry’s has for decades been the leader in creating flavor combinations that surprise and thrill our customers,” says Mark Mullet, Ben & Jerry’s co-owner with Jonathan Stebbins. “This brand celebrates ice cream and non-dairy desserts in a way that is unmatched by other ice cream makers. I am thrilled to be opening in Bellevue Square and I know our customers will be ready for anything that we can dish out.”
