Quick Facts

- Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream company gives their ice cream waste to the local Vermont farmers who use it to feed their hogs. The hogs seem to like all of the flavors except Mint Oreo.

As I said in the last Vermont battle thread, I picked them to upset Syracuse in my march madness brackets where I was laughed at until they did. Go Vermont.
