It's ice cream time
Ice cream fans in Perth's northern beach suburbs have finally had their wishes granted with the opening of Ben and Jerry's latest store at the popular beachside complex, Hillarys Boat Harbour.

The Ice Cream

Ben and Jerry's is famous for its wacky sounding ice cream flavours in addition to some gorgeously creamy flavours. Starting out in 1978, after Ben and Jerry completed a $5 course on ice-cream making, the first Ben & Jerry's was opened in a converted Burlington gas station and history was made, with some great flavours following shortly after. Since its inception, Ben and Jerry's has strived to keep some 'green' values at the core of its production, and even today they opt for fair trade ingredients, use hormone free milk, only use cage free eggs and also have a strong social conscience with an active foundation that gives back to the. community.

So many choices

The Flavours

When Ben and Jerry's was first started, flavours were created on the basis of what they thought tasted great and without huge marketing panels and taste tests. As such, funky textured flavours have always been the norm at Ben and Jerry's and this will definitely add to your tasting pleasure. If you're not sure what to opt for, then ask for a free taste, and you can try a few until you find your favourite flavour. A common favourite is the Chunky Monkey, a banana ice cream with chocolate and walnut chunks. Kids seem to adore Phish food, a chocolate ice cream with marshmallows and little chocolate fishes throughout. I found a new flavour that is absolutely delectable, Coconut Seven Layer Bar, a coconut ice cream with coconut swirls and chocolate chips. If you don't take my word for it, ask for a free taste.

Hillarys Boat Harbour - B&J's

This small scoop shop, is compact but includes a small sitting area at the back of the shop and a bar with seats running down the main part of the shop opposite the counter. For further seating, there is an abundance of sitting options outside on the Hillarys Boardwalk. This is a great ice cream shop for an after dinner treat or for grabbing a cold treat on a hot day.
