Re: What's The Dough Boy Afraid Of?
Here's the story, as I remember it...
Ben and Jerry found themselves in competition with
a large corporation. Their distributors were being
coerced into dropping Ben and Jerry's ice cream.
B & J realized they couldn't win a legal battle, so they
took it to the people with an ad campaign. They won,
and we have Cherry Garcia ice cream because of it . Who
says democracy isn't great?
