To celebrate Olympic snowboarder Hannah Teter's silver medal win, Ben & Jerry's is offering a sweet deal: Stop by any of the shops today and you can get a scoop of Maple Blondie for just a buck. The limited batch flavor was made especially for the towheaded Vermont native, and contains chunks of blond brownie and a maple caramel swirl.
Warning: you may have to slightly embarrass yourself by shouting, "Way to go Hannah!" in order to receive the deal, though chances are good that the Ben & Jerry's scoopers might want to avoid the unnecessary show as much as you do.
And if a dollar still sounds like more than you'd care to part with right now, take heart: Free scoop day, March 23, is only a few weeks away.
