Don't know about you, but watching the Boston Marathon always makes me hungry. (Running it make me hungry, too. I inhaled half the Cheesecake Factory menu after the 2004 race, my one and only marathon to date.) If you're waiting for a loved one to cross the finish line, cure your rumbling stomach with a free scoop of Ben & Jerry's newest flavor — Boston Cream Pie — from 10 a.m. to noon Monday (April 19) at the Park Plaza, Newbury, and Boylston Street shops.
The ice cream is chock full of fudge flakes, yellow cake, and cream swirls, and pays tribute to Patriot's Day. It's pretty sweet to have a Ben & Jerry's flavor after our fair city. Yum-o.
