Ever wonder about the history of Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream? It's one of my favorites. Everyone loves Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, and with great vanilla ice cream. Well, yum!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream:

Inspired by an Anonymous Fan in 1984 Way back in the early days of our first Scoop Shop in Burlington, Vermont, we had a bulletin board where people could suggest new flavors for Jerry and Ben to make. As the ideas flowed in, an anonymous flavor idea stood out.

The folks at the Scoop Shop went to work mixing up a batch of Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough. It was an instant hit.
